Warning: So, in light of the catastrophe that is my latest review, I have decided to restructure my reviews again to make my views clearer, rants calmer, and feedback more constructive. Please bear with me as I get all this sorted out—thank you! (Thanks to Kristianne Hassman for the idea!) Stars: 4 Synopsis: The best days of Lai Duyên’s life have just begun...or have they? Only days after becoming a member of her local calligraphy guild, Duyên’s guild is visited by the guardi
Hate is a very strong word, I know. I’d have much rather used a different term, but “I Do Not Necessarily Enjoy Reading Devotionals...But I Wrote One Anyway” is a bit too long and clunky in my opinion. Not quite as clickbait-y either, eh? The truth is, though, that I don’t necessarily enjoy reading devotionals or Christian self-help books. I spent a great deal of my childhood reading daily devos, jotting my thoughts down in Bible study guides, and struggling to glean somethin
*Warnings* #1 This is a long review, so pull up a chair and grab a bowl of popcorn. You’ll be here awhile. #2 When I read a review, I want substantial information. So I will not skimp on the details. Which may mean some spoilers, so watch out. You know how there are some books that, when you turn the final page and walk away, you leave a piece of you behind?
You know how there are some stories that become so vivid that you feel as though you yourself are entangled in the wor
Welcome to the blog tour for The Secret of Emerald Cottage - my favorite author Julie Lessman's latest release! (Which I gushed about here a couple months back!) Today, I've got it all - a review, a giveaway, fun quotes (graphics designed by the author)! But let's not waste time, y'all! My Review *Warnings* #1 This is a long review, so pull up a chair and grab a bowl of popcorn. You’ll be here awhile. #2 When I read a review, I want substantial information. So I will not skim
*facepalm* Y'all know how I promised to wrap up the tour yesterday? Yeah, that obviously didn't happen. Why? Because I had a ridiculously busy day and was thiiiiiiis close to finishing up this post when my wifi shut off. So, you know. Here we are now. A day later. Oh, well. Anyway... The launch tour has officially ended, my lovelies, and as sad as that seems, it is truly a cause for celebration!!! All of you have made the launch a HUGE success, for which I am exceedingly grat
Today marks exactly twenty years since the events of 9/11. I think that deserves a moment of silence. Today marks the day thousands of people lost their lives and thousands more lost loved ones. I think that deserves a moment of grief. Today marks the day our nation fell in the form of two crumbling towers. I think that deserves a moment of respect for all the men and women who sacrificed for this country, who built it up before and who built it up again so that, twenty years
Reviews are pouring in, y'all, and I am pleased to say that Daylight is looking like a success, all thanks to my amazing reviewers!!! Y'all are the best! Now, because positive reviews - or reviews of any kind - make my like author heart want to jump for joy, I want to share a little bit of what readers are saying about Daylight! “Out of the ashes of 911 comes Daylight, a poignant short story about a tragic moment in American history, where glimmers of hope emerge from glimmer
Welcome to Day 5 of the Daylight Launch Tour!!! Today, I have two fun things to share with y'all - an exclusive interview with the main character of the story, Sylvie; and a downloadable book club kit!

And now, for the moment you've all been waiting for... The beginning... Of the blog tour... For the launch... Of... Daylight 9/11 short story. Coming September 11th, 2021. It was too late.
The whole world knew it, the nations shaking their heads at the fallen United States, our beautiful country of hope and freedom covered in blood and ashes.
Only the devil could’ve planned something so disastrous.
Only God could save us now.
Only God could save August.
It was all my fau
Y'all may have heard me talk about Julie Lessman a few times before. Actually, you've probably heard me talk about her a LOT. She's one of my favorite authors, a good friend, and a huge influence in my writing! Anyway, she's releasing her FIRST EVER MYSTERY!!! *excessive cheering ensues* Technically, this is a romantic suspense - and, being a Lessman novel, it's 50% romance and 50% mystery/suspense instead of 20/80...which makes my romance-lovers heart very happy. For non-rom
GUYS IT'S HERE. THE COVER FOR BEYOND HER CALLING IS HERE! WHICH MEANS BHC WILL BE HERE VERY, VERY SOON! *squeals incessantly* This is a post that needs no introduction...simply lots of pictures. And fangirling. And chocolate. *showers everyone with Hershey's Kisses and confetti* Let's start with an up-close peak at Ivy and Keefmore in the background... Isn't it just SO lovely??? Come to think of it, I should probably do this whole post with a Scottish accent in honor the sett
