Faith is the Victory

No, I’m not talking about myself with that title. It’s the title of the book that is releasing on September 26th!

To celebrate the release, I’m doing something a little different. First, the blog tour is shorter (September 26-28) and then on September 30th a friend and I are doing a Facebook party together. Her book, Befriending the Beast is releasing that day and we thought it would be fun to a party together.

So why this blog post? Two reasons. Continue reading

August updates, an announcement, and new goals

August ended up being a busier month than I expected. But it was a good month and I got a lot done.

Updates

In August, I orchestrated a couple of blog tours for some clients which was fun and I was thankful for their business. I also finished as much of the rough draft of Savior, Like a Shepherd as I decided to. I wasn’t sure how to write the end, so I left that for the typing up phase which I have been working on the last week. I am now about 3/4ths of the way through that process with the goal of finishing by Saturday so I can send the manuscript to my beta-readers.

I also published my third novella of the summer (and personal favorite), Blessed Assurance. If you haven’t had a chance to see anything about it yet, scroll down to yesterdays post and meet the main character, Adelaide Brown.

Besides some real life things, I think that’s about it for what happened in August. So now I can share with you the exciting news I found out on Wednesday night! Continue reading

Introducing Adelaide Brown

BA Banner

Who doesn’t like a good mystery? I’m sure there are a few, but most people do like mysteries. What about a mystery within a mystery. Faith Blum’s new novella is just that. First there’s the mystery of who tried to dupe five mail order brides. Then Adelaide finds out someone is claiming she’s a runaway bride. What happens to her? Find out in Blessed Assurance.

About the Book

Beta-readers needed!

SLAS Mock-up for NaNo

This cover is a mock-up I made. The real cover will likely not looking anything like this.

Good morning!

I’m excited to say that, Lord willing, I will have my next novel ready for beta-readers by September 6th. If you have read Blessed Assurance, you will have been introduced to the main character of this book, Titus Hine. For those who haven’t read the novella, Titus is a twelve year old orphan who has to take care of his eight and five year old brother and sister. The main problem? No one in town wants anything to do with them since they were born to a prostitute. Continue reading

Befriending the Beast

My friend, Amanda Tero, has written a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale. I haven’t read it yet, but will be soon. It sounds amazing and the cover looks great, too!

Befriending the Beast

About the Book

Updates

It’s been a while since I updated you all on what I’ve been doing lately. I’m not even sure when the last time was, so bear with me if you already know a lot of this. I think I’ll do a monthly update.

In January, I published my first novella collection, A Mighty Fortress was promoted on BookBub, and I saw hope that I just might be able to make it work to write full-time. Continue reading

Pokemon Go

gameboy-1523077_640There’s been a lot of talk lately about Pokemon and Pokemon Go. Honestly, I have major concerns and I’m tired of all the talk about both of them. I’ve never done anything with Pokemon and I never will. I always knew there was something not quite right about it because my parents didn’t want us to get involved with it, but I never knew all of the reasons behind it.

About two weeks ago, I heard a radio talk show with a pastor who has now done quite a bit of research on Pokemon and Pokemon Go. I only heard half of the program, I went on his website later and found two articles with lots of research in them. I will link to the articles at the end of my post. Continue reading
