Book Club Day 2 & Reader Pics!

Q #2:  At the end of chapter 19, Angelina tries to encourage Charlie by saying, “God will make a way for you.” Is there a time in your own life that you had to do a very difficult thing in hopes of honoring the Lord and might have clung...

Sigh-Worthy Cover Awards ~ Summer 2016

I’ve got a serious case of cover love this summer. So much so that I wanted to round up a handful that have recently caught my eye and that are deserving of a few sighs. Better yet, let’s make up some awards! We can do that, right? ;)   BEST DRESSED ~ Keep Holding On by Melissa Tagg Can the designers of this cover please come and give me and my hubby a fashion overhaul. Seriously! I want to give these two a closet raid and impeccable style aside, the adorableness of this is just…wow.   CUTENESS OVERLOAD ~ Homestands by...

The Lady and the Lionheart – Proofing Time!

The Lady and the Lionheart – Proofing Time!

It’s been a busy but fun season of going through The Lady and the Lionheart one final time before sending the book off for copy edits. Part of this process has been pulling out a few favorite research books for this story and doing some careful fact-checking. I have a short attention span (yes, I just confessed that :) ) so often struggle through non-fiction books. In school, I was the kid daydreaming that the textbooks on my desk were a raft I could float away on instead of something that actually had to be studied. But now, and as most writers would agree, when we are immersed in a...

2016 Releases (with a little help from Jane Austen)

Last fall brought with it a fun and busy season of book-releasing. In August, To Get to You launched and it was an absolute blast road-tripping with you all! Just a month later, the Heirloom Brides collection released, and it was a joy to share a new historical romance with readers! Shortly after, 21 Days of Christmas hit shelves and included my short story, “The Balsam Walk”. So as a writer, life was kind of like this…   After all the launch happenings were over, I savored some delicious time of R&R but with the turn of a new year, so comes the...

Video chat with Sigmund Brouwer & a Giveaway!

Thief of Glory —it’s a book that came out last year and some of you have probably read it! For me, it’s been on my wish list and more recently, I’ve been chatting story and craft with Sigmund Brouwer, so I was inspired more than ever to finally grab a copy of this award-winning book.   When it arrived, I dove right into the first chapter and was so hooked that I was up much too late, flashlight and book in hand. The story is riveting and the writing is absolutely stunning so I was thrilled to get to sit down with Sigmund and ask a few...
