28th book on my 28 birthday!

Good morning, everybody! Today is my second full day of being 28 after a whole year being 27. Funny how that works. I had fun during my 27th year of life, but I also had some tragic things happen, some small, some big. All in all, it was a good year. I lived a lot, I learned a lot. Including how to do math.

“What?” you say.

Okay, so I did know how to do math before, I just hadn’t taken the time for a while to count out how many books I’ve published in the last 5 years since A Mighty Fortress hit Amazon’s virtual shelves.

For some reason, a few weeks ago, I decided to go through and count them. You’ll never guess what I found out! Continue reading

Release Day: He Leadeth Me

wordswag_1537039343769

I almost forgot about this post. So I’m sorry if it’s a little short. That doesn’t mean I don’t care, it just means I’m forgetful and busy.

But, I did want to say a couple things.

It’s release day!!!!!

He Leadeth Me is finally here. It’s been a long time in coming. Did you know I actually wanted to publish this book last fall? Yep, it’s true. But then this little thing called getting engaged and then getting married kind of got in the way. So this book got put on the back burner. For almost a year. But it’s finally here! Do you have your copy yet? Continue reading

Sing the Wondrous Story: An Orphans of the West Novella

I have a new release! It’s a prequel novella to my final Orphans of the West novel! I’m super excited to share it with you. And it’s on tour along with the novel! Check out the information about the book and the giveaway below!

This book was fun to write. It started as a Pride and Prejudice retelling. But turned into nothing close to that. But I kept it anyway. Because it tells some good backstory for a minor character in my next novel, He Leadeth Me. I loved writing the story of Jason and Jessamine. They were fun characters, although, as usual, I had a minor character I like best of all. When you read the book, keep your eye out for this character. I’d love to hear your guess!

The princess pulled out a knife. She wounded the guard coming toward her and left him crying in pain.

Andrew followed her as she rushed toward the horse of the cruel guard. She mounted with ease and was off.  He called after her, but she was gone.

After a few days, Sir Andrew made it back to the castle. He discovered that the princess had planned her escape from the very beginning and was not celebrated as a hero.

After Sir Andrew recovered from his wounded pride, he led a mission to deal with those that had attacked the princess. The kingdom was safe once again.

Book Review: Finding Christmas Joy by Amanda Tero

It’s Christmas in July! Or, for some of us, it is. If you live in the south like author Amanda Tero, you’re more than ready to think of cold weather. And what better way to do it than to grab some sugar cookies and hot chocolate (trust me, after you read the story, you’ll be craving them!) and settle down for a winter read?

About the Book

Melonie Brown just wants to get away from all of the pain and heartache that this year has brought upon her, and Starlight Lodge seems like the perfect place to do so. With no plans beyond a Christmas escape, she drives out to the lodge. Can she bottle up the peace and joy that she finds in this special place to help her face the challenges she may have in the upcoming year?
