Operation Zulu Redemption by Ronie Kendig with giveaways

Operation Zulu RedemptionSynopsis:~

They never should’ve existed. Now they don’t.  

Zulu, the first all-female special ops team, was set up to take a devastating fall. Fearing for their lives, Zulu members vanished with new identities. Isolated and haunted by their past, they are terrified of being discovered.  Over the years, the brave women of Zulu have begun to hope they might be safe and the terrible tragedy forgotten.  Until two of them are murdered.

My endorsement:~

There’s always been something utterly addictive about Ronie Kendig’s writing but she has injected Operation Zulu Redemption with extra high-octane habit forming fuel. You are strapped …

Are you a re-reader? Why, or why not? And if you are, what are some of the books you have read over and over?

Francois Mauriac said, “If you would show me the heart of a man, tell me not what he reads, but what he re-reads.” I’m a dedicated re-reader of favorite books: to me, it feels like visiting old friends! I’ve read the covers off all the Maeve Binchy books I own, and Rosamund Pilcher’s The Shell Seekers is one of my favorite all-time novels. Every …

Bookish Question of the Week

BookishQu250There’s no doubt e-books have revolutionised the reading experience as we have such easy access to millions of books at the click of a button. I carry over 1500 books in my handbag these days, thanks to my Kindle – and this from a women who initially vowed e-readers were not for her!

One thing I have noticed is that much of the benefit of ebooks is in favour of the reader with books cheaper than ever, and a never ending supply of free books available, thanks to the power of Amazon! It has opened up many opportunities for writers, …

Within the Veil by Brandy Vallance with a giveaway

Within_the_Veil_sg_HalfSynopsis:~

They never should have met. But they might be made for each other.

Feya Broon, a Scottish half-gypsy, knows what it is to go hungry. Trapped in the Edinburgh tenements with a father lost to his past and only the faded memory of her mother’s faith, Feya is desperate to provide for her siblings. When an ill-conceived plan leads to thievery, she finds herself in the last place she’d ever want to be—captured by a palace guard. But there’s something about this man that tears at every preconceived notion she’s even had about the haughty English.

Cover Art Reveal: Coming from Revell in early 2017

Revellearly2017

Following close on the heels of their sister publisher Bethany House, Revell has released their early 2017 covers with new and beloved authors.

I love that Revell is steering away – with some covers – from a traditional Christian look and point to Pat Bradley’s, Samuel Parker’s, Irene Hannon’s, and Thomas Locke’s (aka Davis Bunn). Recruits is a terrific cover, Purgatory Road suitably eerie, and Sandpiper Cove – well, a man and his dog? Who can go wrong with that?!

There are still plenty of traditional covers with Amanda’s particularly, Laura’s, Jill’s, and Suzanne’s. I’m afraid none of them particularly …

INSPY Award Winners, 2016

INSPYs-2016-INSPY-Winners-Feature

Rel: It’s been an honour to be a part of the INSPYs Advisory Board since it’s inception. I work with a team of brilliant book lovers who are dedicated to showcasing the best in fiction that wrestle with faith matters. In addition, our judging panels have been terrific as they have read, considered, and discussed each novel and determining a result in each category. Here are the winning novels!

Following careful consideration, our incredible judging panels chose the 2016 INSPYs award winners in our seven respective categories. Following months of reading (by the Advisory Board and later, our judging panels),
