Today is the day! Technically, Lily of the Valley released on Thursday, but today and tomorrow are the days of this blog tour. And yes, I’m hoping the Cyber Monday excitement will help generate a little more attention to my book. 🙂 But, before I get to that, I have some exciting things happening. Be Thou My Vision has been free since Thursday and on Friday, I had some really big numbers for all of my novels.
Be Thou My Vision made it up to the #3 slot on Amazon Free books. I had it advertised on Bookbub (the hardest promo site to get in) on Black Friday.
All of my novels have been in the top 100 of various categories all weekend which has been a big blessing to me and also very exciting.
And then there was my author rankings. I’m still only the #1700something overall, but in the Religion & Spirituality category, I made it up to at least #17. But I did get screenshots of this one and the one below because I thought many people would recognize some of the names here. In the one above, I’m just barely below C. S. Lewis! And in the one below, I’m surrounded by famous authors, Karen Kingsbury and John MacArthur.
After all of that excitement, I’ll finally get to the point of this blog post. Lily of the Valley has arrived! I have a few specials going on through Monday and TWO giveaways! Check it all out below. First, here’s a little something about my book.
About the Book
Howdy, Teacher! You don’t know me, but my kids talk bout you a lot. I been lookin fer a wife and mother fer a few years and was wonderin iffen we cood meet and get to no each other a bit. I’ll come after skool to git yer answer. Grover Miller
Unruly schoolchildren, three suitors, and too many things to do. When Ruth Brookings rejects one of the suitors, he refuses to accept no for an answer.
To make matters worse, when she prays for guidance, she’s answered with a challenge instead: To encourage her friend to find a wife—whether he wants one or not.
Will she lose her friend just when she needs a friend the most? Will she be able to weather the storms she’s about to face?

About the Author
Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. (The picture doesn’t show it well, but there are scribblings on the page of Green Eggs and Ham). Now that she’s grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.
When she isn’t writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, writing, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana someday to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.
Tomorrow is the last day to get Be Thou My Vision (Hymns of the West #2) free! Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NF3QV52

Congratulations, Faith! I got “Be Thou My Vison” via Bookbub. 🙂 Yippee!
Thank you, Faith! I hope you enjoy it! 😀
That’s so exciting how high your books are ranking 😀
Thank you, Eliza! I’m spending way too much time refreshing pages to find out the stat changes. It’s a little addictive.
Yeah, she is spending too much time on there. She was late for a few things today, like lunch, and a game… :] Maybe someday she’ll be “better”. 🙂
(Love ya, Sis!)
😛 I doubt it, sister dear. But you can always hope. 😉
Woah!! That’s awesome!! Congrats on some awesome ratings! 🙂
