I’m still accepting beta readers for Unexpected Beginning, the fourth book in the Alissia Roswell Series. It’s currently in the final stages of editing, and I always like readers to go through it after the editor to see if they catch anything we missed. No special skills required, but you will need an eReader or app on your tablet. You just read it like you normally would, and if anything catches your eye, you’d let me know. It’s that simple. You’d get your hands on the story before it goes public, and I get my mind eased that nothing slipped through. (You’d be amazed at how many little things go unnoticed, even by an editor.)

I would prefer you read the first three books in the story before getting to this one so you don’t miss out on most of Alissia’s adventure. If interested, be sure to fill out the form below.

Friends ForNever by Melissa Baldwin

Erin Taylor is a hard-working journalist with a serious TV addiction and lack of a social life. She’s focused on her career and determined to leave her tiny cubicle behind for a fabulous corner office! But when a new co-worker, a friendship drama, and a hot workplace crush collide, Erin finds it harder and harder to focus. Especially when that crush on the oh-so-yummy Aiden Thomas starts to materialize into what feels like a magical relationship. Erin’s life seems to finally be heading in the right direction…until suddenly friends aren’t such great friends after all, her magical relationship hits a bumpy road, and her career could be derailed by it all. Erin learns a lesson the hard way: Sometimes people aren’t who they seem to be. With her happiness on the line, can Erin rise above her disappointments and create the life she’s always dreamed of or will she be stuck being Friends ForNever?

Ragged Hope: Surviving the Fallout of Other People’s Choices Book Review

Posted by on Jan 10, 2017 in Book Reviews | 0 comments

Written by Cynthia Ruchti, this book is a collection of true stories she gathered from others. Each chapter tells a person’s painful life experience, where they were greatly hurt by someone they loved. I’m not talking about small hurts either. Most of these stories deal with pains I had never really thought about, and they all kept me interested.

I liked how each chapter stood alone and completed a story. Lately, I haven’t had much time for reading fiction, as those books are often hard for me to put down, and life has been a bit hectic. This book made it easy for me to read one chapter before bed each night, usually while soaking in a hot bath.

It is a Christian read that tells how each person chose to deal with other people’s choices that destroyed their lives. Like I said, these aren’t small hurts, and their lives will never be the same again because of someone they loved. It’s a book about forgiveness to the extreme. Everyone has a choice to make on how to deal with their harsh realities, and these people chose to forgive instead of getting bitter.

I truly can’t think of a negative thing about this book, and I give it five stars. Very interesting, uplifting, and it’s an easy read. It would make a great gift for someone going through extreme pain because of the wrong choices of someone else. It’s also a great read in general. You don’t have to be struggling with forgiveness to get something out of this book. It’s really that good!

The Rise of Miss Notley by Rachael Anderson

To escape an undesirable match, Miss Notley must give up her riches for rags.

When Miss Coralynn Notley’s father barters her off to the first titled gentleman to come along, she realizes she must flee her home or be forced to wed a despicable man. Driven by desperation, she applies for the position of housekeeper at Tanglewood Manor, the home of the handsome Mr. Jonathan Ludlow.

The moment Jonathan sees Miss Notley, he is intrigued. She is far too young and inexperienced for the position, yet there is something about her that that inspires a certain hope within him. Does he dare offer her the position of housekeeper or will doing so result in catastrophe?

The Rise of Miss Notley is the delightful tale of a mysterious gentleman and a determined young woman, caught together in a web so tangled it begs the question: Will they ever get out?

Coming February 2017

Looking for Beta Readers for Unexpected Beginning

Posted by on Dec 20, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Unexpected Beginning_FrontCover_FINAL_72dpi

Want to be one of the first to read Unexpected Beginning? If you have an e-reader or app on  your device and would like to get a copy of the fourth book in the Alissia Roswell Series–before its official release–please fill out this form, and you’ll be contacted as soon as the editing is finished.

As a beta reader, you agree to notify me of any errors you may find that was overlooked during the proofing and editing stages. (Yes, those frustrating typos still exist, even after multiple people read through it many times–including an editor. I agree. It’s truly amazing how those little things slip through unnoticed.)

It should be ready for beta reading around the end of January, and I’ll need your input within two weeks of receiving your copy, as I’m striving for a February release.

It’s that time of year again! You know, sitting by the fireplace in your comfy clothes. A cup of hot tea in hand. Warm and cozy. Maybe even a couple of dogs resting nearby. You’re staring at the computer screen, hoping to find a sale. Sound familiar? Maybe you’re more of a coffee and cats person, but you’re definitely hoping for a sale.

That’s where Ebates and RetailMeNot come in handy. If you haven’t read the post I published earlier this year on how I got $152.36 back in the form of a check from Ebates, I highly recommend you read it. This past Monday was called “Green Monday,” and I made a large purchase from a certain store. Because I went to Ebates first, I got a discount code for $100 off and will also receive 20% back from the purchase. That’s a total savings of $160! I had expected to pay a lot more for that purchase, and the combined discounts made me a happy woman. I do love a good deal!

I don’t want to be redundant, so check out my recent post to learn how I get my deals. Good luck with your shopping, and Merry Christmas!

Felicity and the Fire Stoppers by Loralee Evans

Felicity is no stranger to adventure, and not much surprises the little sparrow any more. Even if it’s a visit from an old enemy!

But when she sees something that looks suspiciously like…smoke in the mountains near her home, Felicity realizes that she’ll need to use all her smarts and courage to help her friends.
Especially when a group of fire fighters, or as the animals in the Wildwood say, fire stoppers, needs her help!

amazon

“This new adventure is both novel and exciting with language, dialogue and plotline very well arranged and pitched, in my opinion, for the target audience of children 6 to 10 years.” –PFID, Amazon Reviewer

Some of Loralee Evans’ earliest memories are of sitting with her mom or dad while they read her stories like The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, or Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey. These memories, along with many great teachers who got her excited about reading are what helped her develop a love of books, and of writing. She has lived in Missouri, Texas, and Utah, and even spent a year and a half in Japan! Some of her favorite authors are James Dashner, C.S. Lewis, Heather B. Moore, and J.R.R. Tolkien.
