June 2015 Promotion for The Enclave


Just a quick note to let you all know that Bethany House is running a discounted ebook promotion for my most recent novel, The Enclave for the rest of the month of June (now until the 30th ) available through all the major online vendors (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, ChristianBook.com).  So if you have an e-reader and you’ve not yet read The Enclave and want to, now’s your chance to get it for as low $1.99 (as opposed to the official listed price of $7.99)

Here’s the back cover blurb:

When Lacey McHenry accepts a prestigious research fellowship at the world-renowned Kendell-Jakes Longevity Institute, she sees it as a new start on life. But when a disturbing late-night encounter with a bizarre intruder leads to a cover-up by Institute authorities, she soon realizes all isn’t as it seems.

Caught in an elaborate game of deception and seduction, her only ally seems to be the brilliant but absent-minded geneticist, Cameron Reinhardt. A favorite of the Institute’s charismatic director, Cameron, too, came to K-J hoping to escape his past. But the more he learns about Lacey’s attacker, the more he fears that the past still pursues him.

Not certain they can trust each other, Cameron and Lacey reluctantly work together to uncover the shocking secrets that lurk behind the Institute’s respectable facade — secrets that turn out to be bigger, stranger, and far more dangerous than either of them could have imagined.

And this from the Amazon blurb:

“The Enclave is characterized by adventure, intrigue, spiritual analogy, and romance, all set in an unusual but fully realized world–one that may have its foundations on earth but which, the more one learns of it, doesn’t seem much like the earth we know at all.”

The Enclave was a 2010 Christy Award Finalist for Visionary Fiction

    Just finished this book today! Really enjoyed it (not quite so much as Guardian-King books #2 and #4 though)!

    Then I got thinking maybe I had missed another one of your books, but alas, I have not. Maybe soon you’ll have another??

      Glad you enjoyed The Enclave, Judy. Thanks for letting me know. In regards to your question, I am currently at work on a new novel, but life has been throwing me an unrelenting series of challenges that continue to interrupt, distract, and impede on my progress. (And also on my blogging! Alas…) I can only say I’ll be finished when God sees fit to enable me to finish. Everything else I’ve tried seems to get knocked down about a day after I begin…

        Hello Ms. Hancock!

        I, too, have been looking for additional books and have been trying to track you down online to see if you’re still writing. Sent an email a couple weeks ago, wanted you to know that your Guardian King series has been endlessly fascinating for me and my husband (who had the books before I married him)…I’ve read the series 3 or 4 times now…absolutely love it. Just found out that you have Arena and The Enclave. Got Arena from the library – absolutely wonderful, as well. Contemplated reading it twice before returning it.

        VERY MUCH looking forward to what else you’ll be putting out. Selfishly praying that God will smooth your life out so that you can finish writing a new book. 🙂 Hope your new grandbaby is a-ok at this point!

    Ms. Hancock:
    GOD is an/the Engineer.
    At 17, I asked my Dad, Science Teacher, a question about my old car.
    Big mistake, as I already knew at that time, because he answered it the same way an Engineer answers questions: exhaustively. (I thought he would answer quickly because he wasn’t feeling “good” that day.)
    He got up…, and the problem went from my lights dimming, to battery, generator, points, (52′ Chevy.), fan belts, changing the oil, greasing zerk fittings, rotating the tires… etc. Two and half hours later, the car was washed and waxed…, but running better than I what I asked for… I also arrived safely at my girlfriend’s house.
    GOD does the same thing with me as I try to write a “great” song; not just the fun ones I write only for me to hear. I asked Him if I could write one; so far…, I been working, paying bills, exercising, playing music, tons of ideas, recording ditties, etc; but, only Hope has come of anything.
    I’m sure GOD is answering me: Exhaustively. (“No” is always a possibility.)
    Sounds as if you might be going through the “Godly Engineering” of a new book.
    I’ve read/enjoyed all of your books and like the great idea of Christian Science Fiction/Fantasy. (C.S. Lewis, Lawhead, et al.)
    Thanks for adding to their work.
    Everything you’re doing is part of the process…

      Thanks for the encouragement, Byron! I appreciate your kind words about my books, but even more I appreciate your sharing of your engineer father’s answer to your car question. It made me laugh. Oh, so familiar! (My husband is an engineer) Not only the exhaustive and detailed answers but… the fact that when they are in a new environment they are the ones asking questions. Exhaustively.

      I learned this recently when we visited our newly born grandson in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. After lengthy conversation with the nurse on duty, my hubby stepped out of the room and the nurse said to me, “I’ll bet he’s an engineer.” I said, “He is! How did you know?” “Because the engineers,” she said, “always ask tons of questions. They look at all the machines and lights and wires and want to know what they all do, and everything about what’s going on with the patients.” She was laughing, as was the nurse of the little boy who shared the room with our grandson. And so was I. So true!

      Also, thanks for your comments about God “engineering” this new book. I think you’re right. He’s been telling me much the same thing, recently, just using a slightly different metaphor. But I like yours a lot!
