Today in History—Aug. 21

Today in History—Aug. 21—the largest fire in US history consumed 3 million acres in 1910. It was called by many names, but the most famous is The Big Blow Up! Smoke clogged the air all the way to Denver.

Today we see history repeat itself as the top 10 fires in the US are in Montana. My publisher had no idea when they chose this month to release Second Chance Brides Collection containing my novella, Fanned Embers. But on this day, 107 years ago, Missoula became a sanctuary for all the people displaced by the massive fire swallowing up the Pacific NW on the borders of Montana and Idaho. Watch the video below to see what just a fraction of that might have looked like with today’s comparison. It may be the solar eclipse, but it’s a special day for more reasons than that!

Please remember to pray for all the people displaced, the firefighters trying to contain the wildfires, and those who have already lost so much. And then please remember those who cannot get clean air. The smoke is causing illnesses in young and old alike from sore throats and headaches to bronchitis and pneumonia.

What’s a Pulaski? It looks like this axe/adse and can be used to chop or dig meaning a fireman only has to carry one thing instead of two… Photo links to a Wikipedia article.

  I’m grateful to a man who lived over a century ago, Ed Pulaski. He invented the tool firefighters still use today. The tool was named after him—the Pulaski. And that’s all the thanks he ever saw. He never received pay. He never achieved the massive fame or success that someone today might with an invention in constant use. But I hope he receives much in heaven for his part in saving so many lives and affecting our world even after his life is done.

2016 Fall New Releases by Angela Breidenbach

It’s been a busy year leading to a busy Fall new release season for me.

Three books releasing this fall and a couple of new contracts pending…
1. Contemporary romance collection, The Bucket List Dare (including Her Impossible Dream) comes out mid-October. This cover pending…
2. Gems of Wisdom: The Treasure of Experience, non-fiction women’s devotional, helps women cope with the past and become women of courage, confidence, and candor. Releases Oct. 25th. This book earned something really special to me! Gems of Wisdom is a recipient of The Dove Foundation’s “Faith-friendly” Seal of Approval!! Here’s the review on Dove.org. Ironically, a bucket list goal. (Ironic because of the fiction book coming out in the same month that actually carries the words “bucket list”! Truly, I did not see that happening the way it did.)
3. Blue Ribbon Brides (includes Seven Medals & a Bride), Historical Romance Collection, 9 stories of women who win big at the local, state, or national fairs. This book releases Nov. 1st.
4. Next book I’m writing? Fanned Embers for the Second Chance Brides historical romance collection coming out Aug. 2017.
5. After that? Sagebrush Bride in the American Flowers series. It releases Aug. 2017.
6. And the newest? His Indentured Bride in the Captive Brides, another historical romance collection releasing Fall 2017…

I hope you’ll all enjoy them as much as I enjoy writing them 🙂

FYI: Not all the covers are ready yet, but I’ll share as soon as I can.
