REVIEW: JUDGMENT CALL by E.B. Roshan!

Thursday, September 22, 2022

Hey everyone! I'm sharing a review for an impactful book I had the privilege of reviewing, Judgment Call by E.B. Roshan! This one deals with some pretty difficult topics surrounding forgiveness, and it just dives right into the hard stuff -- it doesn't toy with the "I forgave this horrific criminal in a single moment because it's easy" fluff we see so often in fiction. It doesn't make light of what we're called to do as Christians. It shows a very realistic struggle. And...oof, guys. I'm still mulling it over (and those are the kind of books that I adore). Anyway, onward for more info and the review!




ABOUT THE BOOK

Kiva is handsome, generous, and very much in love with recently-widowed Preen Enda. But the thought of becoming his wife fills her with dread—especially when men from her past—men who know too much—begin appearing in her peaceful town. It's only a matter of time before her secrets are revealed.

If Kiva learns the truth about what happened to Preen's first husband, will he still want to become her second?


REVIEW
An easy five star.

If you enjoy clean dystopians with a fresh setting and compelling arguments, this one will be a quick read. I started it intending to read a couple chapters, then ended up finishing it within a couple hours because I couldn't put it down. The characters are easy to  sympathize with, the settings well-written, and the theme and main struggle in the story is VERY compelling and thought-provoking. Without spoilers, it's something that makes you set the book down for a moment and ask yourself what you'd do in their shoes, because it's the type of impossible situation that worms its way into reality so often. I was impressed by the thought and planning that Roshan placed into this main theme, plus how the situation evolved throughout the story -- very, very well done. Finally, the story is fast-paced even when we're not in an actual action scene.

PREORDER BACK TO ME

Thursday, September 8, 2022


 

So, guys...*sigh* I did a thing. 
(Actually, I'm doing several things but I can only tell you about this one right now) 
(If you want a hint at one of the things I can't tell you yet, read the full description of Back To Me)

Since I've been having intermittent (and persistent) internet issues, and thanks to my amazing formatter who sent the files back before I expected them, I decided it would be best to schedule Back To Me for preorder now instead of in three weeks' time. 

October 25th is the official release date. The paperbacks will be available that week, but if you're a Kindle kinda person, now's your chance to grab a copy. I am also offering a preorder discount: until release day, the Kindle price will be $0.99. October 26th, the price will jump to $2.99 -- which is still a pretty great price. BUT if you like Christian contemporary novels and books that cost less than a dollar, you'll want to preorder. 

Click HERE to do just that!

If you do choose to preorder, you can click HERE to submit your info and receive a preorder goody package release week. I have very limited quantities of everything except signed bookplates, so you'll want to jump on this soon! Through this form, you can ALSO get your preorder reserved for signed paperbacks, if that's your preference and you want to jump on the preorder goodies. 

COVER REVEAL: AFTER OUR CASTLE by Kellyn Roth!

Wednesday, August 31, 2022

 Hey everyone! I'm thrilled to be sharing the cover reveal for After Our Castle by Kellyn Roth, the next installment in the Chronicles of Alice & Ivy series. Check out more info on the book below and scroll for the cover!

BLURB


And they lived … well, happily ever after.


A year into a blissfully happy marriage, Violet Angel admits to a dose of skepticism. She’s not married, granted—but as the closest friend of the bride and groom, she feels she has a perspective no one but the people directly involved could have. There’s no such thing as a happy ending, and it’s only a matter of time before the castle in the sky plummets to earth.


If only Violet were always wrong instead of just mostly wrong. Ivy McAllen doesn’t believe she and her new husband are out of the honeymoon period—if they are, she isn’t going to admit it to herself—but there are certainly areas of adjustment that she hadn’t expected.


Changes at the village of Keefmore and in Ivy’s life lead to complications, and Violet spirals further and further from reality. When a castle in the sky turns out to be more cloud than stronghold, finding a foothold proves more than a little difficult.

Book 6 of The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy, After Our Castle, releases October 15, 2022. Preorder HERE and shelf it on Goodreads HERE!


And now for the cover...





Isn't that pretty? Do you plan on picking up the next installment in this series?

COVER REVEAL: EXTENSION SQUAD VOL 1 by Rachel Scheller!

Saturday, August 6, 2022

 Hey everyone! Today I'm SO stoked to share the cover reveal for Extension Squad Vol 1 by R.M. Scheller! First, some info!


BLURB 

Austin calls it honor. The others call it sulking. Either way, they’re all on death row.

The law is simple: a life for a life, no matter the circumstances. When aspiring hero Austin takes a life in defense of another person, he’s thrown in with the cutthroats on death row. Even though they’re doomed to die, they’re given an extension—by doing the grunt work for the heroes, they can prolong the time until they’re killed. But Austin refuses to play that game. If he’s going to die sooner or later anyway, he’ll do so with his pride intact. The only question is whether he has the resolve to see it through. Extension Squad Vol. 1, the first in a new original-English light novel series written by R.M. Scheller and illustrated by Heather Rose, is releasing September 1.

Preorders are open NOW, and if you check out R.M. Scheller's Instagram page HERE, there are preorder goodies involved... 

And now for the cover!



Okay, so now for my fangirl moment: I had the honors of editing this book, and let me tell you, it's SO. GOOD. Marvel fans, DC fans, graphic novel fans, anti-hero nerds...you'll love this. I'm dead serious. I adore how easily Scheller combined lovable and realistic characters with the fantastic, the thought-provoking and the stunning...and superhero-worthy abilities.
