I wish with all my heart that you all had a happy, bookish Christmas, filled with your loved ones and God's peace in your hearts. I was truly blessed this Christmas, and I am greatly thankful for every gift He has sent in my life.

Now on to some really exciting news.

I wrote a book!!!
I have been writing it on and off for many years now, and I finally thought it might be ready for publication. I am curently editing it (what a headache) and I have it available for preorder on Amazon. It will be an ebook, because I want to try my hand at self-publishing... we'll see how it goes.

I wanted to share with you the cover, of which I am incredibly proud:


(I own the copyright to the above image.)
I plan to publish it under the name M.C. Frank, which will be my author's name


And the summary (yes, it's a Robin Hood story!!):

Robin Hood, hidden deep in the Sherwood Forest, is fighting to restore England to its rightful king, surrounded by faithful men, green leaves and clear skies. And yet for the first time he isn’t satisfied with his lot in life. The reason, a red-headed maiden who saved him, more than a year ago, from certain death. Robin has exhausted himself looking for her with no hope of finding her alive, when he meets a slender youth who surprises him, little knowing that both their lives will be irrevocably changed. 

Rosa Fitzwalter, the Sheriff’s daughter and kinswoman to the King, lives in the grand castle in Nottinghamshire, trying to obey her father’s wishes and to make him happy. What the mighty Sheriff doesn’t know, however, is her closely-kept secret: she is leading a double life, sneaking out to the forest dressed as a boy, to inform the outlaws of his plans to destroy them. 

Then Robin finds the boy who came to warn him in his forest. Two worlds collide, resulting in unimaginable danger and intense romance. Maybe, just maybe, they can be each other’s salvation. But what if fate has other plans? What if their fearsome enemies finally succeed in tearing them apart forever? 

Filled with adventure, intrigue and wild romance, this is a Robin Hood story unlike any you have ever read before! 

The publication date is the 14th of February 2015, Valentine's day, and here is the link to it on amazon.com

It is a clean romance, targeted at older teens and adults. 
Please let me know what you think!!!

I am so excited and also very anxious to get this done on time, and it is a bit of a huge pressure on me, wondering how my book will do, whether anyone will like it and so on, but I am trusting that God will guide me in this new carreer path. It is certainly something that I enjoy doing, so in that respect I feel incredibly blessed already.

Needless to say, anyone who wants a copy to review can email me or leave a comment on this post, I would be honored to send you the document!!!

You can read a little sample of the story at FanFiction, where a very early and crude draft of it was published years ago, by the title 'The Robber and the Princess', although I will be taking it down soon from there.

Thank you for reading, and God bless you for the holidays!
