GIVEAWAY NEWS!

My latest book, BROKEN TRUST, will be releasing on March 17. To celebrate I’m giving away Amazon gift cards. There’s more info on that at the end of the post, but first…let’s talk about BROKEN TRUST.

Life is all about choices…and consequences.

Chryssie Mason longs to soar like a butterfly, but a lifetime of bad choices has kept her in the caterpillar stage. After years of struggling, her dreams are finally within her grasp. Her only goal is to graduate from nursing school so she can have a better life—so she can morph into a butterfly.

With her final exam only days away, she witnesses a murder. A butterfly would call the police, but she decides to take the easy way out…once again. Life has taught her to never trust anyone, especially herself. With her freedom and her very life at risk, it’s time to trust.

And that choice changes everything.

Questions about DEADLY SILENCE

Leave a comment

So DEADLY SILENCE was released a few days ago. I thought you might enjoy a more in-depth look at how it came to be so I imagined what some questions might be regarding it.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE TITLE–DEADLY SILENCE?

First it’s part of my Deadly Communication series so it needed the word Deadly in it. But the more important word is silence. I wanted to explore the idea of silence from several different perspectives. First there’s the silence of being abandoned at the altar without a word of explanation. But Maven is also faced with a different kind of silence as she takes on a new client who is a late-deafened adult. Her client has been thrust into a silent world due to a medical condition. And then there’s the silence from God that threatens due to Maven’s anger and bitterness.

WHAT GENRE IS DEADLY SILENCE?

I’m so glad you asked that! I like to think of my Deadly Communication series as cozy mystery meets suspense. It’s got all the action of suspense but the great characters of a cozy mystery.

WILL THERE BE A FOURTH DEADLY COMMUNICATIONS NOVEL?

At this point I don’t have any plans for a fourth but that doesn’t mean a whole lot. Since I write the stories that come to my head, if another Maven story pops into it, then I’ll write it.

WHAT’S THE TAKE AWAY OF THE SERIES?

My goal was to portray a real woman with real problems. So we saw Maven struggle with depression, the after affects of Bell’s palsy, her weight issues, and then being left at the altar. We also saw her keep going through it all by depending on God.

So that’s the take away–no matter what happens in your life, God will be there to see you through it.

 

YOUR TURN: Do you have a question about Maven and the Deadly Communication series, or one about writing? Leave the question in a comment and I’ll do my best to answer.

DEADLY SILENCE

Here comes the bride….da…da…da…but where’s the groom?

That’s the question in DEADLY SILENCE. We first met Maven Morris in DEADLY COMMUNICATIONS then we got to know her even better in DEADLY INTENT and now it’s time for her wedding. She’s at the church–alone! Where’s her beloved fiance, Paul? No one seems to know but you can find out soon. DEADLY SILENCE will release on January 20.

WHAT’S YOUR WORD?

Leave a comment

Lots of Christian writers will have a word they focus on for the year. This word might be for them or for their writing or both. There’s even a book somewhere in my office that is all about picking and living a word.

I don’t have a word. I always wanted a word but one word for a whole year? I’m rather fickle when it comes to some things. I change my mind a lot so one word for me didn’t seem possible.

Now you may or may not remember that I’ve had some serious health issues for quite some time–approaching the five year mark soon. In spite of them, God has been so good to me! Two specific things come to mind–well three if you count my amazing husband.

One is that God has kept me in his supernatural peace in spite of lots of things going on. That’s not to say I don’t have a pity party or two but when I draw near to God, He is there waiting to put His arms around me once again.

Two, I can still write! It’s amazing how God has blessed me this part of my life.

But…something’s been missing. Not every day but lots of days.

JOY.

It’s really hard to be joyful when you don’t feel good. It’s just that simple. It makes sense to me and yet I’ve missed having JOY. It’s not that I never feel happy or don’t have a good time. I have and I do but I want to feel God’s joy most of the time–not once in a while. So when I read two different devotions this morning with the theme of joy, it jumped out at me.

 

I have a WORD for 2017–JOY!

What’s your word for the year?

SAPPHIRE SECRETS by Dawn V. Cahill

Leave a comment

I’ve been reading some wonderful books the past few months and SAPPHIRE SECRETS by Dawn V. Cahill is among my favorites. That came as a surprise to me. When  I started reading it I didn’t think that would be the case, but the more I read the more I was drawn into the story and even more so into the characters’ lives.

AMAZON LINK FOR SAPPHIRE SECRETS

Ms. Cahill has a way with words! Her writing is clear, crisp, and creative. I can’t wait for the second installment in this trilogy. This book is definitely worth the money!

GOD BLESS & GOOD READING!

GAME ON–Let’s Celebrate!

39 Comments

Today is my fifteenth wedding anniversary to my wonderful husband! Tomorrow is his birthday and…tomorrow is also the day my new book, GAME ON, is released. That’s a lot to celebrate!

Not every day is filled with such momentous things to celebrate, but if we look around we can find lots of things to celebrate on a daily basis. Like the sunshine or sometimes even the rain can be a reason to celebrate. And let’s not forget family and friends. And tomatoes and birthday cake–just not at the same time!

Anyway back to GAME ON…

One lucky winner will win a $25 Amazon Gift Card and their choice of an e-copy, Nook, or Kindle copy of my previously published books—sorry not GAME ON (that one you’ll have to buy).  Five other people will win a $5 Amazon Gift Card. And finally five more winners will get their choice of an e-copy of one of my previously published books, not GAME ON.

That’s LOTS of winners! And lots of reasons to celebrate!
