The Christmas Duet Blog Tour!

I have a new book out! To celebrate the release, I am teaming up with Rebekah Morris for a blog tour! We both have books that released in November so we decided to do a fun tour for both of our books.

Today I will be sharing a book review of Rebekah’s book, so I will concentrate only on her book in this post, but you can learn more about my book here.

His Law is Love

Book Description:

Will hate and fear drown the song of Christmas love?

Amelia is eagerly anticipating her first Christmas in the west, but she soon finds that her brother-in-law’s worry and her sister’s exhaustion reach far deeper than the cares of a ranch and a family. A rash of fires and cattle thefts is plaguing the area, and the three young orphans they’ve sheltered are under suspicion from their prejudiced neighbors.

As hostilities mount, Amelia seizes every opportunity to help and encourage, but how much can one girl do? Will Reverend Brown win the community over to the true spirit of love? And will help arrive before everything they hold dear is destroyed?

Another Year is Dawning

new-year-1904679_1280

Last year about this time, I made 10 goals for 2016. This year I have a few more. But first let me share with you how last year went.

  1. Publish two novella collections, three novellas, and two novels. (One collection, three novellas, and one novel were published as well as a few short stories. The second collection and novel will be published in January and February, Lord willing.)
  2. Read at least half of the writing books I own. (Not quite, but close)
  3. Be more conscientious of the time I waste on the computer.(Yes)
  4. Finish the study of Revelation. (Yes)
  5. Read through the Bible in a year. (I missed too many days and couldn’t quite make it. I hope to finish sometime this year though.)
  6. Learn at least one new classical song on the piano. (I did learn Schubert’s Impromptu op. 142 #3, but it isn’t quite polished yet).
  7. Be better about responding to emails. (Yes, mostly).
  8. Finish the sewing projects I’ve put off, including my quilted dress. (Eh, not so much. And the quilted dress has been changed to a skirt, and still isn’t finished).
  9. Write at least one informational blog post every other month. (I believe I did manage to do this one).
  10. Keep on top of the church activities I am involved in. (Mostly).
