Exciting Times!

I realize it has been quite a while since my last blog and I am so sorry for that. It’s just that, well, I have been preparing my book, “The Conservative Congregant” for publishing. It goes on sale tomorrow, August 30. I’ve been so excited about this book because it is about the things dear to my heart, namely homeless people and God and blessings and ministry and I could go on and on.

The thing about “The Conservative Congregant” is that it is not just one book. No, siree. It is to be a series. I’m already at work on Book 2- The Dowagers. I want to say that this is not about religion, but about doing the right thing, stepping out of one’s comfort zone to help others and the unexpected blessings that comes from that one selfless act.

“The Conservative Congregant” can be found and bought here. Or the Kindle version can be found here. I hope you all check it out and let me know how you liked it or didn’t like it in the form of reviews. Every author needs reviews and I’m no different.

Thank you all so much for bearing with me!

Author Interview: Paula Walker Baker

If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been hiding- well, this blog from my sweet friend, Jackie, will let you in on the secret!

A Platform of Sorts

Happy Monday, friends!  It’s the beginning of a new week and I have a special guest on my blog with me this morning!  My dear friend and fellow author, Paula Walker Baker, has a new book coming out next week so I invited her here to talk about it this afternoon!

Paula and I met last year at Camp All Saints, the same camp where I worked for three years and met several of my closest and dearest friends.  It’s a place that has changed my life over and over again and brought the most amazing, wonderful people into my life.  I will forever be grateful for all of my experiences there.  I’m sure there will be many more to come.  Paula is a dear, sweet, wonderful lady and I am so honored to call her my friend.  Please give her a warm welcome!

Review for Boy Band by Jacqueline E. Smith!

My friend, Jacqueline E. Smith is an amazing writer. If you’ve not read Boy Band, you must!

“… It’s weird being in love with your best friend. It’s even weirder when the rest of the world is in love with him, too.”
Jacqueline is AMAZING!!!!! This is my third book from her and I just keep loving her writing even more. I am so amazed by her talent. She juggles different genres and pulls them off marvelously!
I fell in love from the first line. Not even five ages in and I was crying from laughing so hard. My laughter was uncontrollable and I blame the characters. They are unique and their humor made me giddy. It was like that for the entire book. It’s so hysterical, I have never laughed so much with any book before it.
Sam and Mel are so adorable and perfect! I love best friend stories like these, and now I love them even…

It Has Been Too Long…

… since I’ve let you guys know what has been going on in my world. So, let me catch up.

I’ve been feverishly working on The Conservative Congregant and now have a release date of August 30 !  I am so excited that my novella will be out soon (on my son’s birthday, mind you!). My hope is the content will touch people in a way they will not hesitate to come out of their comfort zone to help someone else. Only when we come out of that zone and trust God will take care of us, can we truly be blessed beyond measure. The blessings are huge! Even if one does not believe in God , or does not usually like “God ” books, I think this will be a different kind of read for folks.

I hope soon to reveal the cover and I’m super excited (I know! I never use the word super!) to show you what it will look like! So, hang in there and soon you’ll see why I’ve been so out of touch. It’s going to be awesome!

I have also been working on the sequel to The Conservative Congregant. The working title is The Conservative Congregant Book Two: The Dowagers. It might be a little long, but I’ll decide that later. I already have a third book planned in the series, which will be a prequel to the series. I’m pretty stoked and very excited about the upcoming books.. I hope you are too!

Review for Cemetery Tours by Jacqueline E. Smith!

The Bookish Crypt


Where do I start!?
I wish I had a kickass quote to start this off but I was too busy devouring every word to look for one! A guy that sees ghosts? Knowing only that and I was already in love with this story. I am so glad Jacqueline only made me fall even more in love!
Kate had one of the most intriguing and unique backstories I have read and definitely added a lot to the story. The attraction to Michael was a little too instantaneous but I got over it really quick since the story started picking up and my mind was too focused on the ghosts instead of the romance.
I have some serious character envy going on right now!! I wish the things (excluding the bad) that happened to her would happen to me! Ghost hunting and exploring abandoned buildings are my favorite things in the…
