Hi all!


I have a fun Book Journey post planned for next week as we go to Vienna in search of Rachel McMillan’s swoony Klaus, but today, I wanted to share a writing update with you!

Charming the Troublemaker came out in November 2017, and since then I’ve been busily working on several projects all at once. Between the day job and family, my stories don’t quite emerge as quickly as I’d like, but I hope to keep some curious reader appetites well satiated in the near future 😊

Though I don’t have covers for all of them to show you…YET, I do want to abate your curiosity.

Façade – June 2018

Where can you find it? In the Timeless Love collection and THEN it will release on its own in August 2018. Pretty cover, right? I loved teaming up with the amazing Roseanna White on that cover! (as well as the next two you’ll see…eventually 😊) SOON! Add Façade on Goodreads HERE!

Jane By the BookJuly 2018

Where can you find it? In the Once Upon a Laugh collection. If you’ve read Second Impression, you’ll find familiar favorites, new characters, and the same setting…Bath, UK.

Guys!! The cover is AMAZING!!! If you read Just the Way You Are (and enjoyed it), you’ll be pleased to know that Eisley and Wes are secondary characters in this story about Julia Jenkins and Henry Wright – two introverts who have a similar love for music and a similar fear of falling in love. Plus, there’s a historical subplot to bring in a little mystery. You can add it on Goodreads HERE!

My Heart Belongs in the Blue RidgeJanuary 2019

Oh yes! I’ve seen this cover too and it fits so beautifully within Barbour’s My Heart Belongs series. I can’t wait to share the cover with you! This is a fun story set in 1918 Appalachia, where a British teacher enters the wilds of the Blue Ridge Mountains to teach at a two-room schoolhouse. I loved bringing in family history, the Appalachian culture, and some fun culture-clashing humor…not to mention a pretty SWEET romance.


A Match for EmmaMay 2019

If you love Mitchell’s Crossroads, then you know about Emma Mitchell- the sassy, matchmaking youngest of the Mitchell clan. She’s always trying to create the perfect match for everyone else, but will she miss her chance when Mr. Wonderful turns out to be someone she never imagined! Come rejoin the Mitchells, visit old friends, and make new ones…and, give Haus a good ear-scrub while you’re there 😊

There are books aplenty in the future for the Mitchells, Jenkins’, AND a new historical series on the way (my FAVORITE I’ve written so far).


I can’t wait to share them with you!!!! Meanwhile…I have a super fabulous GIVEAWAY for y’all! Enter below via the Rafflecopter form…

      Thanks, Rebecca! I’m so glad you’re on this journey with me.

  3. carrieturansky

    You have been one busy lady! I’m so happy to see all these doors opening for you to share your wonderful books!

    • pepperbasham

      Carrie!!! Thank you so much for your encouragement!! I’m not sure what’s going to happen after fall 2019 with books, but I’m ready for some good surprises 🙂

  4. Karen

    Yay! This is all great news, because I’ve been wondering when your next book was coming out. So glad to see you have more than one for us to look forward to!

    • pepperbasham

      Thanks, Karen! I hope these books will be ones people will want to add to their keeper shelves…or at least be ones that they enjoyed. They’ve certainly been fun to write so far.

  5. Chanel M.

    I don’t really have a preference. With the humor and heart you put into your stories, I’d gladly read anything you write. 🙂

  6. pattymh2000

    I recently read Second Impressions and loved it, so Jane by the Book sounds right up my alley.

  7. Perrianne Askew

    Wow! I just need to know which book to start with first. You have been quite busy. Do you ever write a spooky or mysterious type of book?

  8. Rissi

    CONGRATS on all of your upcoming projects, Pepper! So excited to learn more about your upcoming releases. 🙂

  9. agboss777

    I would love some more historical fiction, please!!!

  10. Courtney @ The Green Mockingbird Blog

    I love all of your stories, so my ideas are few! I do love that you’re loosely basing the Mitchell’s Crossroads series on classic literature! I think that’s a unique nichr…. not retellings so much, but “inspired-by” stories.

    There’s also the marriage of convenience trope = TSB!! You know I’m rooting for that!

  11. cherylbbookblog

    Love your books Pepper. Keep up the wonderful writing.

  12. Fiction Aficionado

    Woohoo! Just look at all that book goodness to come! ❤️

  13. Nancy M.

    You write it I will read it! I really think you’re doing a great job with your variety of historical and contemporary. Britallachian is your specialty! It makes us happy readers!
