It’s my pleasure to introduce to you, Dave and Beth Weikel! It’s truly amazing the work and effort they put into serving God.

Book Review ~ One Prince, Two Kingdoms by Jana Grissom

About the Book My forehead’s throbbing. One minute this girl is yelling at me for giving up and the next, she’s laughing. Whiplash. I squint my eyes at Danielle and whisper with my lips firmly in place, “I will never give up.” Her voice is high and cheerful, “So what’s your plan?” Johnny Boggs is a teen with trouble to spare who has learned one thing in life – trust no one. Paranoia befriends him as he moves into his fifth foster home and discovers no one appears as they are, his dreams are not just dreams, and he is supposedly the Prince of Shamayim. On Johnny’s sixteenth birthday, fate requires him to leave the protection of this world but allows for him to choose to reign over the light or turn to the darkness.

Johnny finds it impossible to resist the beauty of …

Virtual Blog Tour & Book Review! ~ Jane by Michelle Onuorah

It’s a tour stop! About the Book Orphaned. Neglected. Damaged and abused Jane Daugherty has survived what can only be described as the childhood from hell. After years of mental, physical, and sexual abuse, she has become a fiercely independent young woman – closed off from human connection.

At 24-years-old, she is fulfilling this vow, successfully working as the youngest tenure-track professor at the University of New York. Brilliant and remarkably accomplished, Jane’s life takes an unexpected turn when she is reunited with the childhood friend she protected in foster care.

Virtual Blog Tour & Book Review! ~ The King’s Scroll by Jaye L. Knight

It’s a tour stop! It was sometime ago that we revealed the cover of this wonderful book: the second installment of the Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight (read my thoughts on the cover here). Today, I post a review. You can read my thoughts on this book below. About the Book Following the harrowing events that brought them to Landale Forest, Jace and Kyrin have settled comfortably into their new lives and the mission of protecting those under the emperor’s persecution. The fast approach of winter brings with it the anticipation of a quiet few months ahead. That is until the arrival of four mysterious, dragon-riding cretes who seek aid in a mission of great importance—not only to their own people, but to all followers of Elôm. Hidden in the vast mining valley north of Valcré, a faithful crete has spent years sharing his knowledge with the destitute miners and their families and is known to possess what may be Arcacia’s last surviving copies of the King’s Scrolls—the Word of Elôm. Joining the cretes, …

How I Became A Bestseller Author by Michelle Onuorah

It’s a tour stop! I’m happy to introduce to you folks for this first time on this blog, author Michelle Onuorah! She’s one of the most remarkable authors whose work I’ve come across, one of the reasons being that she makes no apology/excuses for her style of writing. When you read her book, whether you’re a Christian or non-Christian, it’s impossible not to walk away in a jaw-dropping manner. I believe Laura Pol of Crafty BookSheeps will agree with me! My head’s still reeling from reading her new book Jane. I’m honored to be part of the blog tour team, and today Michelle is guest posting here. If you’re a writer just starting out, her words of wisdom are exactly what you need. Those who’ve been in the business will agree with Michelle’s words. So folks, I present to you … Michelle Onuorah!   I wrote this on Facebook a few days ago and feel it very appropriate to open this post with the same words: “I just realized that 10 years and 5 days …
