What’s your favourite season, and why?

I love the autumn with its brisk winds and bright earthy colors—the reds and yellows especially. I am an obsessive crunchy leaf stomper. I’ll walk right at the edge of a sidewalk if it means I can hear those cracks and crunches—and I wear a perpetual smile.

What is the best part of your day?

Whatever time combines coffee and hugs.

What do you miss most about your childhood?

Ronie Kendig’s CROWN OF SOULS Signed Advance Reader Copy Giveaway

Nothing better than two special operators! (2)

The moment I read an advance reader copy of Ronie Kendig’s debut novel Dead Reckoning in late 2009, I knew I’d be reading every single one of her books to come and loving them! More than 16 titles later, I can confirm I was spot on in my thinking! What I didn’t anticipate back in 2009 was the forging of a beautiful and treasured friendship where barely a day goes by that we don’t connect in some way, that I’d become a character in her Discarded Heroes series (and have to forgive her for what she did to my book …

Coming in Spring (US) 2018 from Tyndale House

Tyndale early 2018

Loving this lineup coming from Tyndale House in early 2018, plus a bonus, non-fiction release in September from Beth Moore to complement her 2017 fiction release, The Undoing of Saint Silvanus.

Each appeal in different ways, but particularly Chris Fabry’s and Carla Laureano’s, both covers and stories. Carla’s has been a long time coming, so very keen to read another contemporary novel from her. I adore the green eyes and freckles on Cathy Gohlke’s model and I’m sure the story will be nothing short of brilliant. Francine’s sounds wonderfully intriguing and the cover is quite unique, which I love.

The Reading Habits of Jan Drexler (with giveaway)

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

I will re-read some books, especially ones that I read many years ago. I’m in the middle of re-reading the Anne of Green Gables books, and since I’m reading them nearly forty years after my first time through, I’m seeing Anne with a different perspective, and enjoying her immensely.

The Writer

Please describe yourself in three words (ask your best friend or family if you are struggling!)

Empathetic (because according to StrengthsFinder this is my greatest strength), Sweet (so says my Dad), and Strong (or so my friends tell me).

What’s your favourite season, and why?

Autumn. The colors. The smells. Thanksgiving. New pencils. Sweaters. Plaid. Just all the fall things.

What is the best part of your day?

I’m inclined to say coffee time, but really it’s …

Cover Reveal: Coming in early 2018 from Revell Books

Revell early 2018

Reader friends! I confess I’ve been chasing my tail a bit lately and my blog has borne the brunt of my busyness. This post is going to be short and sweet, but it’s always fun to share the covers Revell has put together for their early 2018 lineup.

The stand out covers for me are Laura’s, Valerie’s debut novel, Samuel’s, and Lynette’s. Susie May’s is Ian and Sierra’s story and for readers of this series, that’s all I need to say 😉 And they happen to be the stories I can’t wait to read, as well. Particularly Valerie’s. I’m intrigued
