I am not much of a re-reader unless the book just knocks me off my feet. There are so many good books out there that I just move on :)

When is your optimal time to read – do you prefer to read in one long block, or do you also read for five minutes here or there when you can?

I love big blocks of time where I …

Coming soon from Waterbrook Multnomah


Time for another cover art reveal! This time from my friends at Waterbrook Multnomah. WM don’t publish a big fiction list, but it’s my experience that the books they do select are always of excellent quality and depth, and I do like they way they are heading with their covers.

I love the simplicity of Kim’s cover, although I feel like the title font is a little overwhelming of the very expressive photo. Adore the expression on the little girl’s face – perfect for the dreaded hair brushing! With three daughters I’ve become familiar with that look! Miriam captures …

I value your feedback and you just may see a little change here or there coming up based on your suggestions. Your encouragement and support was such a blessing!

Now, for this week’s topic! As you know, most of the books I read are written by Christian authors with the CBA but I do love reading outside that niche as well. In addition to the classics, writers like John Grisham, Matthew Reilly, David Eddings, Chaim Potok, Wilbur Smith, Leon Uris, James Clavell, …

Cover Reveal: Rachel McMillan’s The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder

Rachel McMillanHS2015So, there’s this girl.

She’s Canadian. She’s feisty. She gushes. She’s loves story.

She’s a redhead. She’s a devoted Sherlockian. She knows the classics like you know the keys on your keyboard.

She’s loyal. She has convictions and she’s not afraid to use them!

She’s also a writer. The debut kind.

I’m so thrilled for her that I can hardly contain myself nor can I wait to read her story about two women I’ve been hearing about for a while; Jem & Merinda. I adore the cover – Harvest House have done a fabulous job. I adore the symbols –
