Author Interview: Joshua’s Prayer by Olivia Rae

The author life only has to be a solo one if you choose it. More and more, I’ve discovered how warm and welcoming the writing community can be. There’s room at the table. Grab a chair and we’ll scoot down. That’s the beauty of community. There’s always a way to make room for more. Anyway, all that to say, that I’m so excited to have Olivia Rae with us today for an author interview and to hear a bit about...

Book Giveaway: Lydia by Diana Wallis Taylor

I absolutely judge a book by its cover, and I have to admit that one of my main reasons for picking up Diana Wallis Taylor’s Lydia was because the cover hypnotized me. I’ve also come to appreciate Biblical fiction because it offers the chance to experience a world that often seems so dry and unreal to me anymore. And Lydia is so little known in the Bible. But, Lydia certainly was an anomaly in that day and age. Not only...

Book Recommendation: Crown of Souls by Ronie Kendig

When I heard that Ronie Kendig’s second book of The Tox Files series was coming out, I itched to get my hands on it. Because honestly, I loved the Conspiracy of Silence, and I wanted to know, “Can Ronie Kendig do it again?” Bethany House Publishers sent out their email with the Fiction selection of titles to review, and I signed right up to receive Crown of Souls. So yes, I received a free copy of Crown of Souls, and...

Guest Review by Julia on The Maze Runner Series

When Julia pinged me with an email with her idea to review The Maze Runner Series on my blog, I thought, “Why not?” Julia and I clicked in Germany over three years ago, and she has constantly been an encouragement to me despite the fact that our paths have not yet crossed in person again. But I suspect I’ll see Julia again. These things just have a way of happening. If you want to know more about Julia and her...

Author Interview: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

Norton Conyers Manor Home

One of my favorite things about having this little space of internet is sharing it with others (who knew sharing could be so fun!). Anyway, I’m excited to have Michelle Griep here today because, honestly, I just love how she describes her novel, 12 Days at Bleakly Manor. But, even better, this book incorporates Charles Dickens. What! Yes. I just love books with layers. And Christmas. Shhh, I know it’s September. But everyone knows that Christmas starts early for artists,...

Book Recommendation: All of You by Sarah Monzon

Click here to purchase your copy. My first interaction with Sarah Monzon was on a Facebook group. She was worried (Sarah, I hope you don’t mind me sharing). She was worried that readers wouldn’t like All of You. Her release date approached, and she reached out for encouragement. I remember loving Sarah for her honesty and her gutsy, vulnerable post, worrying over her upcoming release. And then, well, I HAD to read her book. And may I tell you something?...

Never have I ever had the privilege (fun!) of being a part of a cover reveal for an author, so I am pumped to participate in Pepper Basham’s revealing of Charming the Troublemaker.

Book Recommendation: The Assault (Harbingers, Cycle 2)

Book Recommendation: The Assault (Harbingers, Cycle 2)

As per usual, I leapt into the middle of a series. I don’t mean to do this, but it happens (way more than I care to admit). And sometimes, I just add to the confusion of the story by not knowing what has happened in the previous book. But other times, a book from the middle of a series offers enough information that I can just run along with the current story. (Obviously, I like those ones) The Assault, the...

Book Review: The Wisdom of God by A.W. Tozer

Book Review: The Wisdom of God by A.W. Tozer

Ever since I was a child, I’ve been enthralled with the idea of wisdom, better yet the wisdom of God. Early on, I remember reading the story of Solomon and how he asked God for wisdom when he could have asked for anything. But sometimes, I think Solomon, in all his wisdom, forgot how much he needed to depend on God’s wisdom and not his own, even if it was given by God. When Bethany House Publishers offered the chance...

Book Recommendation: A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White

Book Recommendation Review of A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White

I tore through A Name Unknown like I had nothing else to do but read (if only that were true). I mean, I really had  a hard time putting it down, and I yearned for the moment I could pick up the book again. And I also so love working with Bethany House Publishers because they continually offer quality stories. Book Recommendation Review of A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts,...
