"Back to School" Blog Tour - Looking for Bloggers to feature book

Hey Everyone!

I just woke up and realized a few days ago, that the retail outlets are all getting into "Back to School" mode, and that I should be too! (in spite of the fact that to me, summer is only half over. . . )

I wrote a new book this spring, as a grad gift to my two graduating teenagers,…

Did you write that...

Who's asking? Yes I wrote that. Don't you like it? How many times have you been asked that question. Makes you wonder don't it. I have found that if I let my fingers loose they will say something. Sometimes what they say isn't entirely what I had on my mind. Oh well, that goes with being a writer. An absolute requirement for a writer is, I guess you figured that out already...yes, write. Not just when you feel like it, but every day. Have a set time you get up and go to your favorite place…

Blowing On Dandelions (Love Blossoms In Oregon V1)

“She wants you to believe that, and perhaps it could be true for the most part, but deep down each of us wants to trust we are loved, respected, and yes, even liked, by the people around us. I don’t think your mother is an exception,” Katherine is told in Miralee Ferrell’s Love Blossoms in Oregon series’ novel, Blowing on Dandelions.

Review of Veil of Pearls by M.L. Tyndall

Okay, this book was completely amazing from start to finish. In fact, of the eight novels of Marylu Tyndall's that I've read, this is my absolute favorite. Not only was there plenty of realism and romance, but there were a lot of insightful comments about faith, slavery, surrendering to God, the meaninglessness of worldly riches, etc. But you could also see how…

Review of THE AMISH CANNING COOKBOOK by Georgia Varozza / Harvest House

Amish Canning Cookbook

“When we think of home canning, our mind’s eye is quick to envision neat rows of jars lining pantry shelves, safely filled with food just waiting to be opened so we can prepare a variety of tasty meals for our dear families,” Georgia Varozza writes in her book, The Amish Canning Cookbook.

Riveting Christian fiction by debut author, Jolina Petersheim

The Outcast is a stand-alone novel and a fantastic debut by Jolina Petersheim. Set in the Old Order Mennonite community of Copper Creek, Tennessee, it is described as an inspirational retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlett Letter. This unusual and compelling novel stands out on many levels and is one that I can highly…

Descended - Jett - a review

DESCENDED by Dana Pratola is a romance first and speculative second, although the premise of a man who can make himself invisible due to some kind of supernatural lineage is enough to put it in that category. There is a lot of great description and enough surprises to keep it interesting. Jett, the hero, uses his gift in ways that seem a paradox at times, but are ultimately for good. Aspiring artist Haven falls in love…

Review of An Unexpected Romance by Donna Fitts

An Unexpected Romance is a lovely story. It’s about widowhood, re-entry into the dating scene after many, many years in a happy marriage, and the second time around.

In An Unexpected Romance, Elizabeth Parker has no thought of marrying again, since her husband died two years before. She took over running their real estate business, and managing their…

Wavelength by Jeff Petherick

Listening to God can be like listening to a radio broadcast or television program. If the radio or TV are not tuned in properly all you hear is static, and very little of the message comes through. The same goes when listening to God. With…

Review of A Hometown Fourth of July by June Foster

As sweet romances go, June Foster’s A Hometown Fourth of July fits the bill, but there is so much more of an underlying story. The main plot is inspired by a real-life relative of the author, so we can see why the details are right on target.

Max Tate had been adopted into a wealthy, prominent family in the town of Ft. Freedom. But he had always felt…

Daystar - a review

Daystar by Kathy Tyers definitely touches a spiritual cord, while taking the reader on a fast paced adventure to unknown galaxies. Even at a daunting 650 pages, the story maintained a great pace and was engaging throughout. There was enough pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo (which Sci-fi writers…
