Book release week

The week of By the Stars release was an eventful one! I had a book signing at Barnes & Noble, a radio interview with 97.1 zht’s morning show, a singing at the Riverton Library, did a couple book giveaways on my social media accounts, and had an author interview on KSL’s Studio 5. Here are some photos from the week!

Early reviewer quotes

By the Stars went to press yesterday. Soon I will have an actual hard copy in my hands – eeek! It was quite the process going through the edits and revisions but I’m so relieved it’s complete and excited to see the end result!

I was lucky enough to get some awesome early reviewers of the book and was thrilled with what they had to say. Here is a snapshot of inside front page of the book with the quotes they provided.

Not much longer to go until the release date. March 8th come quick! 🙂

By the Stars
Lindsay B. Ferguson

Deep in the alcoves of 93-year-old Cal Morgan’s mind is an unexpected and intriguing past. Recollections of growing up a farm boy during the Great Depression, learning to foxtrot in the largest ballroom in America, and serving as an infantry soldier in World War II are fragments of his memories. But perhaps above all, a once-in-a-lifetime love story is seared in his soul, reminding us that some things in life are meant to be.

When Cal finally gets a chance with Kate, the girl he’s loved since grade school, their easy friendship quickly blossoms into a meaningful romance. Spirited and independent, Kate keeps a guarded heart due to a painful past, and Cal wants nothing more than to gain her trust. But World War II soon cuts their time far too short, and Cal prepares to part from her – possibly for good. After he’s gone, what Kate does next changes everything.

In the suffocating jungles of the Philippines Cal encounters the chilling life of a soldier and deadly battles of war. With Kate’s memory willing him on, Cal must put his trust in God to survive if he hopes to ever return to her. Inspired by a true story, By the Stars is a romance that stands the test of time and the most intense obstacles.
