Meet Terry's client Dianne Price

Dianne is a great author of the “Thistle Series,” a six book historical fiction series set in Scotland against a backdrop of WWII American Air Force pilots. She has been Terry’s client for about a year but when they recently found that she is losing her battle with cancer, things kicked into high gear.

In stepped Christina Tarabochia, publisher of Ashberry Lane Publishing. Christina had already edited Dianne’s books and loves them. She immediately offered a contract and has put everything aside to get these books to press. The first title is “Broken Wings” and will be releasing soon.

Terry’s client group rallied behind Dianne in a strong outpouring of love, prayers and support. They are poised to jump in and help promote the book as soon as it releases. This blog repeats on facebook and twitter, and I know there are a lot of other people who know and love Dianne and will jump in and help give this book an amazing launch. Dianne has strong faith and is very comfortable about her situation but we are all strongly committed to seeing her realize her dream beginning to come about while she can enjoy it. I’d love to see a groundswell of word-of-mouth support.

And the books deserve it. Beautifully written and edited, “Broken Wings” cover copy reads as follows:

A tragic childhood has turned lukewarm believer American Air Forces career officer, Colonel Rob Savage, into an outwardly indifferent loner who is afraid to give his heart to anyone.

RAF Nurse Maggie McGrath, a mature Christian, has always dreamed of becoming a nurse, falling in love, and settling down in a thatched cottage to raise a croftful of bairns. She is living the first dream, but the war has taken her far from Innisbraw, her tiny Scot’s island home.

Hitler’s bloody quest to conquer Europe seems far away when Rob and Maggie are sent to an infirmary on Innisbraw to begin his rehabilitation from disabling injuries. There, they find themselves caught in a battle between Rob’s past, God’s plan, and the evil some islander’s harbor in their souls. In Satan’s world, which will triumph?

Dianne, first of all, my prayers are with you. I know what you're going through isn't easy. However, it sounds like Terry and his other clients are rallying behind you in prayer to help lift you up to our Lord. I'm adding my own prayers to that cause.

Secondly, your book sounds awesome! I look forward to reading the whole series. Thanks for pouring your heart into these tales. I know I'm going to love them.

Dianne, it doesn't seem enough to send you prayers. I'm moved by your story and very supportive team. I'll be praying for you.

Dianne's books are amazing, and Ashberry Lane is thrilled to be publishing them. The series deserves to be read for its story and craft, but Dianne's illness just ups our desire to read the books NOW and enjoy them with her.

Sounds like a fascinating read and I'm looking forward to the release. I will pray for Dianne and that she may be able to keep her strength up. Know that your written words will bless many!

Thank you Terry (and Hartline) for caring so much for your authors. In your agency I can see that you care so much for those you work with. What a blessing for Dianne!

Thank you Ashberry Lane Publishing for working so hard to get this book to press so that Dianne may enjoy them as well.

This story lifted my heart today. So much of God's love!
