Writerbud Angela Ruth Strong’s latest middle grade novel, The Water Fight Professional, is now available. And to celebrate the launch, I, your host, will buy a copy for a randomly chosen newsletter subscriber (over there to your right). Here’s the link to Smashwords and Amazon, aaand Barnes & Noble. You can wait to see if I randomly pick you, or you can plop down that starvation-inducing $2.99 and help Angela get that Egg McMuffin she’s had her eye on. For those of you who insist I read everything before you do, I’ll review it shortly. And stop sending me your kid’s term papers. …

Posted On Apr 7 2014 by

This week our guest author for the 52 Books Challenge is Linore Rose Burkard.  Linore writes one of my favorite genres–historical. I especially love the lesser-explored time periods. Linore is breaking away from the traditional author post. She’s going to talk a bit about another author and her book, set in 1913 Wyoming. Yes, while Europe was setting the stage for WWI, things were happening in the American west as well. Now let’s hear from Linore. Meet A Woman Homesteader Guest Post by Linore Rose Burkard As an historical novelist, it will surprise no one that I enjoy reading about …

Connecting readers with writers, at the 52-book challenge is an awesome way to find new novels and meet authors. I’m an Inspirational author, but also a reader. I enjoy sitting by the lake or under a shade tree with a novel. Even more special is, if the author is one I’m not familiar with. Reading is a wonderful way to take a mini vacation. When I’m not taking care of the home responsibilities, editing my coming soon novel, or working on my current manuscript. I read other inspirational/Christians books. We each have certain story plots or structures we draw to, …

52 Books Guest Author – Alisa Hope Wagner

Posted On Mar 9 2014 by

Our 52 Books Guest Author this week is Alisa Hope Wagner, who released her debut novel, Eve of Awakening, this last December. She’s a writer after my own heart because, as you’ll see, she writes of a future America torn by division and civil war. However, unlike most dystopians, she offers hope through God’s grace. Her message this week is also one of hope in the face of despair. Please enjoy hearing from this talented new author and, as always, be sure to support our guest authors.

52 Books Guest Author – Teresa Slack

Posted On Mar 3 2014 by

Our guest author this week is Teresa Slack. Her latest romance, Runaway Heart, releases this week. I thought I’d change things up a bit this week and throw some questions at Teresa. I hope you’ll enjoy her answers. Why do you write? I write because I love making an impact on people through stories. I love creating characters and story worlds and inviting a reader in to get to know them. I love to entertain and encourage people. Doing it with stories just comes naturally. But the main reason I write as I race toward the ½ century marks is because …
