Get to Know Kylie Wilde from ‘Tried & True’

September 16th, 2014

Tried & True sm

Kylie Wilde is the youngest sister–and the most civilized. Her older sisters might be happy dressing in trousers and posing as men, but Kylie has grown her hair long and wears skirts every chance she gets. It’s a risk–they are homesteading using the special exemptions they earned serving in the Civil War as “boys”–but Kylie plans to make the most of the years before she can sell her property and return to the luxuries of life back East. Read our interview with Kylie to learn more about Tried and True by Mary Connealy. Celebrate Mary’s latest release with a  Kindle HDX giveaway and come to her live webcast event on 9/23! Click here to learn more and enter.

Christy joins us today to share where you can find a restful place when you are feeling lost.

I took a right and drove and drove and drove until the asphalt became dirt.

This isn’t it.

So I turned around and drove and drove and drove back to where I was originally. This time I took a left and drove past fields and past that salmon-colored house and barn. The husband must have been out of town when that farm wife chose the paint color.

Still not it.

So I turned around and tried another road.

This is the end for me, I thought. They’re going to find me out here in my car, and they will mourn the tragedy of a… read more »

The Story Behind ‘Before Amen’

September 11th, 2014

Before Amen Hi Res cover

What is the most interesting thing about you?

I was raised Old Order Amish. No longer.


I’m a rose rustler. Kind of a funny term, because it’s not stealing anything. Just the opposite—a rose rustler tries to preserve it. He hunts for forgotten old roses that have survived for generations.

What three words would you use to describe yourself?

My landlady has said that I’m taciturn,… read more »
