LOOKING BACK AT HOW IT ALL BEGAN!

A-Clue-for-Adrianna_16x25

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

April 13, 2016, marked the third anniversary of our first Captain’s Point Stories novel, A Clue for Adrianna, by Charlotte Kent (pseudonym for the popular, collaborative writing team of Annie Acorn and Juliette Hill).

Today, their joint endeavors have blossomed into three more full-length novels: A Man for Susan, Love’s Journey and Love’s Surprise as well as the full-length book A Chester’s Christmas, comprised of four stories featuring the iconic Chester’s Crab Shack. A-Chesters-Christmas4

In addition, Annie Acorn Publishing, LLC, has published nine other works in the series including novellas, novelettes, short stories, collections and a boxed set – the latter providing the #BestBuy entry for new readers. A selection of stories have also been featured in Annie Acorn’s Christmas Treasuries, Romance Treasuries, and Spirited Tales.

Looking back, we’re still amazed at how, from one main storyline born in A Clue for Adrianna, the character inspirations, themes, hopes, dreams, goals and aspirations have created an idyllic yet relatable setting in our fictional town of Captain’s Point.

Set along Maryland’s Eastern Shore, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay, the setting is steeped in historical richness, and ideas for plots and adventures abound.

Readers eagerly immerse themselves in the friendship, kindness, and love of the families residing in Captain’s Point.  Many fans anxiously await our upcoming novels, emailing us regularly for updates on new additions to the series.

Rest assured, the writing continues day by day on our beloved contemporary romantic women’s fiction series.  Updates and progress reports via Twitter (@CharlotteKent20) and Facebook  or Captain’s Point Stories Facebook Page.

Finally, as we look back on an incredible three years, Annie and Juliette would like to thank their loyal Charlotte Kent readers for bringing our Captain’s Point Stories series success and acclaim.  To quote the authors, “When we touch the heart and mind of a reader, we have achieved our goal!”

Thank you again for your continued interest and support!

Happy Reading!

“Not one girl here worth taking will accept any of our invitations to the St. Valentine’s Day ball, until you’ve chosen your date,” Owen addressed his friend, who had arrived at the university under a royal flag a few months before, his wind-blown, dark hair almost matching the mane of his black stallion. “Last year we were the top choices, but now, all the girls are waiting for you.”

Recognizing his responsibility to choose, Garrett’s gaze traveled around the room, finally settling on the one who had captured his affections.

Will the prince find the courage to follow his heart as his father had, or will he bow to the wishes of his people?

Can love truly conquer all?
