The Peaks Saga, Books 1, 2, and 3 are officially available!  If you search by author, M.F. Erler, all three books show up together. If by title, they're mingled with a lot of others in alphabetical order. They are also in paperback on Barnes & Noble.  Or your favorite bookstore can order them.  If they ask where, tell them "First Steps Publishing"  E-books are exclusive to Amazon currently. 
Be sure to order the books with the people on the cover! I've posted Jon from Book 2--he's my favorite hunk (after my hubby, of course). The old ones, with mountains, are not revised. Books 4 thru 7 will be coming out at about two month intervals over the next few months.  These are appropriate for Young Adult readers, and the Young at Heart.  If you have questions, you can contact me directly on Facebook, or at my blog
 or email me at
My new handle is "A not-your-typical-Christian author of sci-fi/fantasy, who melds music, nature, and writing with faith."

Sept. 22- Book Release Day At Last

Tomorrow is the first day of Fall, and Sept. 22 is the official release day for my newly re-written Peaks Trilogy.  Three separate books that won't break your pocketbook or your arm.  In other words, not 500-plus-page monster books!

You can get them in paperback or hardback on, or any bookstore can order them for you.  Just remember my author name is M.F. Erler.  And the books are "The Peaks at the Edge of the World"  Book 1, "Finding the Light"; Book 2, "Searching for Maia"; and Book 3, "Mountaintops and Valleys".  E-books will be on Amazon, too.

And over the course of 2019, there are four more in the Peaks Saga to come.
