Introducing My First Book!

Hello!
On top of everything else that was going on this weekend (I won't go into detail because that would take all day), I managed to get my first book published for the universe to see (or, at least those within the Amazon.com range).

Introducing: "Welcome Home", book one of the Faith, Hope, and Love collection.  If you haven't guessed yet, it's based off of 1 Corinthians 13 (hence the collection name), so it is a Christian romance.  It is available now from Amazon.com or CreateSpace.com: $7.99 print and $3.99 digital.  (Honestly, this is the day it was released and I'm so tired of saying that price blurb already...oops!)
Here is the description I provided to Amazon: "Lucy is an eternal optimist who keeps her heart safe in its bone prison. Spencer's had a hard life that didn't get any better after he came home a soldier. What could God do with such broken souls, and what broke them in the first place? Will they be safe, even after monsters from the past come and rip apart their newly placed roots in small-town, New York? Find out in "Welcome Home", the first book in the Faith, Hope, and Love collection." 

There you have it.  If you want to check it out, the book for the print form is right HERE and the Kindle format is HERE.

I expect to have part two of the "Writing a Novel" blog-series up (or at least a draft begun) in the next day or two.  I'm excited to get it started, so I'll talk to you soon!  If anyone decides they're crazy enough to buy my first book, it would be immensely appreciated if you could review it on Amazon (reviews boost its popularity listing, from what I understand) or even just tell someone about it.  Self-publishing is a lonely place, especially for marketing.  I may or may not even look into doing a giveaway for it on here, just let me know if you'd be interested in something like that.

Week In Review: From Zero to Sixty

I wish I would have thought about taking a picture of my class to-do list this week before I started crossing things off, because it totally filled an entire copy page...with small handwriting. But the important thing is that it's done with.  Mostly. For another week.

 Anyway.

Currently reading: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics and Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Michael Reaves.  (Non-canon.) I'm also reading Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, partly for school and partly out of interest due to the Thor movies by Marvel (although it's Loki I'm reading up on). 

Current projects: My Compass Home, formatting A Town Nativity for publication, and I'm getting ready to start play practices for my church's 150th anniversary play.  I honestly don't know how many words I wrote this week, but between this week and last, I filled half of a composition book and then wrote on the computer some as well, if that counts for anything. 

Current Bible verse: Peace I leave with you, …

Blog Tour: Review of "Beyond Her Calling" by Kellyn Roth!

Hey everyone! Instead of the boring "writing tips" post that I had planned for you guys this week, I am excited to be reviewing Kellyn Roth's new release, Beyond Her Calling, as part of the her blog tour. This was a beautiful book and I loved pretty much every part of it. Let's get to it, then!
Beyond Her Calling "At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn't accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?
Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won't really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in …
