Through the past few years of writing my historical Amish series The Promise of Sunrise I learned a few things. Amish Fiction is the best. Here’s why…
1 — A direct celebrity connection with Weird Al Yankovich and Harrison Ford. Come on, how cool is that? If you prefer quirkiness over looks or vice versa—the Amish have it covered.
2 — Getting closer to this kind of fiction involves homemade pie and pastries. It’s research, right? Making and eating pie, cinnamon rolls, and entire Thanksgiving meals are purely for research. I wouldn’t dare go overboard and put myself in a carb-coma.
3 — Learning all about “sewing your wild oats” without getting into trouble. This one might be a close second behind the pie. You can also learn really cool words like rumspringa and vilda havvah seheh.
4 — Imagine being just one step away from the crazy cool pop culture references like Amish Mafia and Breaking Amish. It’s a little known fact that one of the top questions I get as an awesome Amish fiction author is Is the Amish Mafia real? My answer? You betcha…and I’m pretty sure Lebanon Levi is a distant cousin.
5 — Learn the important Amish secrets like how women wear a dresses entirely held together by straight pins. Wouldn’t this information be vitally important during a wardrobe malfunction? A button popping off while at work? A zipper busted and you’re in the airport? Seriously, those evil things have nothing on a few straight pin!
6 — Amish and romance DO mix. Oooolala Why do you think they have so many children? I won’t embellish… If you don’t know, read my books.
And, last but not least, you’ll learn how to keep your curves in just the right places.
7 — A90X. You don’t need a series of videos or even a yoga mat to do this. You might pop your buttons or zippers watching this so make sure to have a few straight pins ready (see #5)…you’ve been forewarned. Scroll down...click play...
