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

Update: Lo, How a Rose

I know I don’t keep you updated on all of my writing escapades and I apologize. But today, I have a few updates on my next publication.

Do you like the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale? You may know that I have started a series reimagining fairy tales set during the time of Kings Saul, David, and Solomon. Lo, How a Rose is book two in that series. Each book is slightly connected, but each can be read without the other.

I am excited to announce two things regarding my book, Lo, How a Rose. Continue reading

Book Review: The Christmas Heirloom

Title: The Christmas Heirloom: Four Holiday Novellas of Love through the Generations
Written By: Kristi Ann Hunter, Karen Witemeyer, Sarah Loudin Thomas, and Becky Wade
Genre: Christian Romance
Recommended Ages: 13 & up

Introduction:

When I had the opportunity to receive a review copy of this book, I knew I wanted to. Mainly because one of my favorite authors wrote one of these novellas. I wasn’t disappointed by her book. The others… Well, one was rather disappointing and the other two were only fairly good. I loved how the brooch fit in to every story. 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

Book Review: Saving Faith by Valerie Howard

Title: Saving Faith
Written By: Valerie Howard
Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance
Recommended Ages: 15 & up (due to mentions of sexual content, but no descriptions)

Introduction:

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I picked this book to read. The description didn’t tell me a ton about it and the cover said even less. Although, after having read the book now, the cover tells more than you’d expect. This isn’t your normal romance and isn’t super ushy-gushy. It’s about multiple broken people who have a lot of things to work through and Valerie does a good job portraying that. 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!
