Doctor Who Tees!

As a fellow Whovian (Yep, that's right) my mother told me to post this here, and share with all of you. (Yeah, really, we're both Whovian's!)

I've designed a bunch of T-shirts, and today they're on sale for CyberMonday on TeePublic! Take a look, here! 

And here are a few of examples . . .

Horstberg Volume III

Horstberg Volume Three is Hot, Hot, Hot off the Presses . . . So to speak. 

When A Man Is Torn Between Honoring His Country And The Woman He Loves, The Best Option Might Be To Choose Both




The Horstberg Saga, Volume Three: FOR LOVE AND COUNTRY is now available. I'm so excited to be sharing this story with you, and to see it evolving. In this volume, we are moving forward to the next generation while the characters you've grown to love still play a major role in the story. I hope you will enjoy the adventure!
Follow these easy links to get started on the journey, and please keep spreading the word! Many of my readers still don't know about these books. And also feel free to post a review on Amazon after you've had a chance to read it.
I am currently doing revisions on Volume Four, which I have now entitled THE TAINTED CROWN. So, there is more adventure to come!
Keep reading and God bless! Anita

      My dear most devoted fans!

I apologize for the way the blog has been so dormant. I know you 
probably all must get tired of hearing about my health issues, but 
that's the reality of my life, and I have been down in bed a great deal. 
Therefore, if anything besides laundry and cooking gets done around here 
it's a miracle. My sweet daughter, Anna, who helps me take care of this 
blog (because I am so not computer savvy) was diagnosed with the same 
disease I have (Celiac Disease, if you didn't already know) so she's 
been adjusting to that and not feeling well herself. Her brother and two 
of my grandsons have also been diagnosed. For them, the disease was 
caught much earlier than for me, so they should be just fine given the 
right treatments and some time. For me, it went undiagnosed for so long 
that it did a lot of damage that is now tormenting me. 
    Okay, enough 
whining. But that's why both me and Anna are so unmotivated. 
    However, we 
are still here, and there are some good things coming. Eventually we 
will get all of the book histories posted here---I promise! In the 
meantime, there is a complete booklist so you can keep track of the 
books you've read. Some are no longer available in print form, unless 
you can find them used. But they should all be available as e-books. 
     The good news is that volume three of the Horstberg Saga will be out 
before the end of August. I wrote it years ago but it needed extensive 
revisions and editing. We are now almost finished with that process, 
Anna has completed the artwork for the cover, and we are good to go. I 
thought it might be fun to give you a little excerpt from the book in 
the meantime. So click on the book excerpt tab at the top of the blog 
home page, and there it is. I'd love to hear comments if you have any! 
      Take care, enjoy the remainder of your summer, and God bless always, Anita

Book Updates And News

I hope you are all doing well and ready for summer. I have been mostly 
shut away since the holidays, dealing with my ongoing struggles, and 
doing extensive revisions on Volume Three of THE HORSTBERG SAGA. The 
book was originally written over twenty years ago (as all of the volumes 
were) but the first two had already been through the revision process 
multiple times, while this one—and the one after it—had just been 
collecting dust. I must say I was alarmingly stunned with what a 
terrible writer I had been. The story was good, but the writing was full 
of problems. Now the story is better and it can be read without 
offending your intelligence as a reader. Volume Three, FOR LOVE AND 
COUNTRY, is now off to the publisher and is going through the editing 
process, and the cover art is underway. As soon as I have a release 
date, I will send out an email and let you know. I am now working on 
Volume Four, and there is a Volume Five coming after that—titles on 
those are still pending, but the books are written. If you’ve not yet 
had the time or taken the opportunity to read volumes one and two of THE 
HORSTBERG SAGA, I hope you will do so. And please spread the word; the 
majority of my established readers still apparently don’t know it’s out 
there. 



Horstberg I - Behind the Mask 

Horstberg II - A Matter of Honor 

 While I was lost in Horstberg for months, I completely overlooked 
letting you know that I had written a NOVELLA that was released in the 
spring, in a book along with novellas by two other authors. A RAVEN’S 
HEART is a historical story with no LDS content, longer than a short 
story and shorter than a novel. The book is called “Love Unexpected: 
With All My Heart.” I hope you will enjoy it. 


 A Raven's Heart Novella  



 One more thing I want to mention—for those of you who live in the Utah 
Valley Area—is an amazing charity event being held on June 7th that will 
benefit THE CENTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN CRISIS. If you are an avid 
reader of my work, you know I’ve written a great deal about abuse and 
its related challenges. This is an amazing opportunity to help those who 
are victims. Here is a link to the website with information about the 
great activity on Saturday, and also on ways you can make donations even 
if you are unable to attend.

Charity Event <http://www.teamforeverstrong.org/>

I hope you all have a wonderful summer and that you feel God’s blessings 
in your life, as I do.

 Keep reading and have much joy! Anita

Abbi has the gift of dreams. But her uncanny ability to see glimpses of the future has no apparent purpose or meaning until a dream leads her to a man on the brink of despair and destruction. Cameron is a man without a name and without a country, framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Long ago forced into exile and believed dead, the passing of years have defaced him of all hope. The country of Horstberg suffers beneath the weight of tyranny, and only Cameron holds the secret that could see her ruler undone and restore the people to peace and prosperity. While revolution brews and whispers of treason threaten all that is dear to Abbi, she remains unaware of her own ability to answer a nation’s prayers. Trusting only her heart and the power of her dreams, Abbi gives all that she has to lead Cameron back into a civilized world, where love is real and freedom comes only in facing what hides behind the mask.

A Matter Of Honor



THE HORSTBERG SAGA VOLUME TWO



I am deliriously happy to announce the release of A MATTER OF HONOR, Volume two of The Horstberg Saga. It is available in print form (only through Amazon) or for Kindle or Nook.

Here are the links:

A Matter of Honor Print Version

A Matter of Honor Kindle Version

A Matter of Honor Nook Version

I hope you enjoy these books, and if you do you'll take the time to go to amazon.com and do a review. Also, please help spread the word about these books. Since they are not available through the usual retail outlets, the majority of my readers are still unaware of them. Remember that the Horstberg Saga (volume one is Behind the Mask) is written under the pseudonym Elizabeth D. Michaels. But it's still me!

I also want to tell you about a new book by Rachel Branton (also known as Rachel Ann Nunes). She has been an amazing support to me through these challenging years, and in making it possible for these books of mine to be available to the public. She's an amazing writer and her books are always guaranteed to be enjoyable. Here are the links for her latest release:

New Rachel Branton Novel Print Version

New Rachel Branton Novel Kindle Version

The only other news I have to share right now is that my lovely and talented daughter, Anna, has taken over running my blog, so it will no longer be mostly dormant.

Anna is a brilliant freelance artist and an aspiring novelist. From my blog you can link to her own blogs where you can see her amazing artwork and photography. She makes a mother proud!

I hope that you are all doing well, and that you are enjoying the opportunity to finally "go to Horstberg." Fictional though it may be, it's one of my favorite places in all the world!

God bless! Anita

Starting Over . . . Again

For you loyal followers of this very sluggish blog, I am happy to 
announce that it's about to get a new boost and it will become more 
active once again. Dina, who helped me with the blog for quite a while, 
became extremely busy with her own life, and I have been continuing with 
the same health challenges and not able to do much about it. Then it 
occurred to my generally foggy brain that I have an excellent blogger 
living right under my roof. Actually, it was the excellent blogger who 
pointed this out, so I must give her the credit. Anyway, the blog will 
now be officially navigated by my lovely and talented daughter, Anna. 
She is a brilliant artist, an aspiring novelist, and one of my best 
friends. And since she lives down the hall from me, she is always more 
up to date on the happenings with my life---and my writing---than anyone 
else in the world. There is more information about her if you click on 
the mask icon on the left side of this blog (yes, she is responsible for 
the cover art) and I strongly recommend that you check out her art and 
photography blogs. She makes a mother proud. So, feel free to comment or 
ask her questions, and together we will do our best to keep the blog 
more active and keep you up to date.

Love you all and God bless, Anita

Dear Friends and Fans,

First of all, I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season and finding joy in spite of life's challenges!

Secondly, I am thrilled beyond words (and I am pretty good with words) to announce the official release of my first volume of THE HORSTBERG SAGA, which has been published under my new pseudonym ELIZABETH D. MICHAELS. This is a story I have been working on between other projects for about thirty years. It is very dear to my heart, and I am so excited to be able to finally share it with the world. The timing of it coming out for Christmas is an added bonus. I know it's likely too late for gift giving, but after all the Christmas craziness you can reward yourself with a good book. I have been reassured by many who have read the manuscript that is IS a good book. I hope you'll agree.

The book is VERY long, like three books in one, but I didn't feel like it could be divided. This makes the print price 26.55, but the kindle version is currently only 7.99. There is also a sample of the first few chapters if you know someone who might want to try it out!

BEHIND THE MASK Sample

You will find the book, BEHIND THE MASK, on amazon.com, either for kindle or in print. Here are the links.....
BEHIND THE MASK Printed Book
BEHIND THE MASK Kindle Book

The book will be available for Nook as soon as we iron out a few details!

And don't forget that it is listed under Elizabeth D. Michaels. From now forward, all of my work that is not written for an LDS audience will be published under this name. But it's still ME!

My deepest hope in regard to this story is that it will go out into the world and compete with all the icky stuff that's out there. I must also admit that I am hoping this will provide much-needed income for my family since I am still struggling with my health (although I have a great doctor and finally have some answers, so with time I should start getting better) and I am still very burned out creatively. But since I've had five volumes of this series written for a long time, there is more to come.

Volume two, A MATTER OF HONOR will be available in the spring, and there is more to come just as quickly as we can get them out.

So.... SPREAD THE WORD! Tell your friends, associates, loved ones, everybody! And feel free to put a review on amazon!

Again I send my warmest holiday greetings. May you feel the true Spirit of the season, and true joy in all that it means!

God bless, Anita

SEQUEL AVAILABLE: The Garden Path

After more than a year of waiting (for you AND me)
the sequel to "The Wishing Garden" is now available.

"The Garden Path" is the completion of this story, so you don't have to wait any longer to have it all tied up nicely . . . and you can finally find out whodunnit!

Also, due to circumstances beyond anyone's control, Dina has been way too busy with real life to be able to do much here on the blog, and I'm still working out my health issues. So . . . if something really important happens, you will find it here, but we can't promise much action at this site for a while.

If you want to be sure to not miss any important news or updates (any book releases, etc.) go to my website www.anitastansfield.com and you can sign up for email updates. It only takes a minute, and I will always send out an email to that database when there is anything newsworthy.
I hope all is well with all of you, and that you enjoy the book!

It's A New Year

So, it's a new year! Hard to believe! I hope you all had good holidays! Now that the busyness of the holidays is settling down, I wanted to remind you all about my new book that's available as an e-book. You can get it for both Kindle and Nook:

The Captain's Rose
Captain's Rose Nook

I am still being frequently asked when or if this book is going to be available as a printed book, so let me repeat here the answer to that question, which is that I don’t know at this point. This method of e-books is making it possible for me to offer the book to my readers, as opposed to it not being available at all; putting a book in print is hugely expensive, but I’m sure hoping it will happen eventually.


On a more personal note, due to my ongoing health issues I have been unable to write and I'm very much hoping that being able to sell my unpublished books this way will provide some much-needed income. Anything you can do to spread the word about this series would be very much appreciated! It is my greatest hope---as it has always been---that my stories can get out into the world and make a positive difference by competing with all the icky stuff that's out there. I'm hoping my devoted readers and fans will help make that happen!
 "The Captain's Rose" is the fifth volume in the BUCHANAN SAGA, but it still stands completely on its own. However, it is better when read after its four prequels. For those who have not read the previous books in this series, or you want them in electronic format, they are still available at a sale price. Click here Buchanan Saga to get those now!

If you DON’T OWN A BOOK-READING DEVICE it’s not a problem! You can download a FREE
Amazon App and read the books on your computer.

Thank you, as always, for loving my books and characters almost as much as I do, and for your ongoing prayers and support!

God bless, Anita
