Great books, articles, files of previous presentations that have my own good thoughts, notes on Scriptures, ideas written in my journal and on endless pieces of paper.Now it’s Crunch Time! Somehow, I have to declutter my surroundings, declutter my mind, and make order out of all…See More

Think Before You Speak

Part of the fun of the Christmas season is thinking about what food or gift you’ll be taking to parties and get-togethers. (If you’re like me, this can also be part of the stress because of my less-than-Julia Child skills!)Although food and gifts add to feelings of goodwill, there’s another more long-lasting…See More

WELCOME!! I'm SO EXCITED YOU ARE HERE!!! CONTEST LINKS LIVE 19th - 21st. You can enter to win copies of the books on the front page! Enter them all - Interact with the authors!! It's so much fun!

2012 is going to be a great BOOK FUN YEAR!! We are going to have more book giveaways, you’ll get to know more authors. Bethany house and B & H have some great featured authors this year and so does the group here called CAN (Christian Authors Network)

Check out the Book Club Pages. We have review sites, Book stores have put up pages, some of them are in the process of starting a book club, it just might be in your area. This is not a site you need to be on every day, but just check out parts of it when you can.

I LOVE Book club. I’m passionate about getting the word out about Christian authors and their books to book clubs. I think this could be a great for them to meet for each to learn from the other; authors from book clubs and book clubs from authors, I’ve seen that so far. It’s been fun to watch. We’ll see where the Lord leads us in 2012. We have many exciting opportunities lined up just for you. Book Clubs are about relationships with each other and with authors. It’s a win win!

Blessings to you
Nora
