Blog Tour: "Seek" by Angela R. Watts Author Interview + Book Spotlight!

Hey everyone!  I'm so excited to be sharing this post with you guys!  Seek by Angela R. Watts is officially published, and I had the opportunity to interview the authoress herself!  Once you're done reading the interview, you'll want to scroll down and check out the book spotlight as well.  There's a giveaway that you won't want to miss, and you can find even more information about Ms. Watts and her books by following her on social media, or keeping up with the blog tour this week!  
1. What was your inspiration for writing Seek? God gave me a crazy dream [that] gave me the idea for Seek. After two years or so of writing, rewriting, and editing, the novel has changed, but the original idea has remained. I must admit, dreaming about a villain really helps you write them...
2.  What are some things you hope readers gain from reading your novel? Whatever God needs them to gain! I pray that Seek touches whoever picks it up. I hope that my readers find how important it is …

Week In Review: What Day Is It??

Hey everyone!  Admittedly, I almost forgot to even post anything today.  This week has flown by and I've felt like it's Friday at least three times since last Friday.  If that doesn't make sense to you, it's okay - it doesn't make sense to me either.  Between writing a 7 page research essay for communications class, a bunch of "hair-on-fire" happenings yesterday involving my work, and the general bustle of November and December, I'm a bit out of sorts.  Not to mention that I've started into my three weeks of finals, so there's that. 

Also, you'll want to make sure you keep an eye peeled for a special post on Monday!

Currently Reading: Kiera by Kate Willis, Silent Days, Holy Night by Phyllis Clark Nichols - reviews to come for both.  I also read Finding Fireflies by Angie Thompson, which I loved.  
Current Bible Verse:  "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name"…

Wow, Wow, Wow!

Hey everyone!
Just a quick post today with some updates regarding the sales over the weekend!

My original goal for the free Kindle downloads: 50 for the whole weekend/Monday.  That was completely blown out of the water and doubled in the first day of the sale.  From there, I thought it would be cool to reach 150 downloads, just because.

352.  Three hundred and fifty two books were downloaded between Friday and Monday.  

I don't really know how to even grasp that.  The bestsellers were Welcome Home and Something New, with 97 and 94 downloads for them, respectively.  I was going to find about 352 "thank you" gifs on Google to post here, but...I'm pretty sure that would make any given viewer's Internet bandwidth explode trying to load them all.  So here's Chris Pratt saying thank you. 


Not to mention, there were some - I think around 45, to be exact - that went to international readers.  Germany, the UK, France, Australia, and Brazil if I remember correctly.  So …

Week In Review: The News Says It All

Cover Reveal: "Seek" by Angela R. Watts!

Hey everyone!  I have a super-special post today.  Angela R. Watts' newest book, Seek, is going to be released in December -- and of course, you have to have a cover before you publish a book.  Today is the official cover reveal for this novel!  I'm going to get out of the way and let you see the majesty that is this book cover - I actually gasped when I saw it - but first, I want to encourage you to check out her social media  and make sure to add this book onto your Goodreads bookshelf.  That way, you'll be the first to know when Seek is released.

And without further ado....




About Seek Angel Cutler’s routine life is overturned when local ganglord Viktor Marino tries to kidnap her. When she finds out her adopted sister is back in town and working with Viktor, Angel has to run with the protection of two total strangers. Can Angel’s faith in God protect her family when she can’t? Elijah Davis has seen Viktor bleed once, and to protect his family, he’ll make it happen again…

Week In Review: Cold, Cold, Cold, Cold...!

Hey everyone!  Been super busy lately-- training for work, school stuff, other commitments -- and more things kicking in next week!  I didn't post last Saturday  because I was helping my mother at a craft show.  And kind of hoping that some of the Christmas stuff wouldn't sell because it's too pretty.  Oops.  She has a Facebook page and an Etsy shop if you want to see some of the decorations I'm talking about. 

This week was mostly a blur of realizing that I was, in no way, prepared for the sales I'm brewing for the shopping season.  I think I've remedied that for the most part, so if you have any of my books on your wish list, make sure to stick around!  That said, if you're also planning to offer sales anytime during the Christmas shopping season and would like help spreading the word, send me a link to your book(s) and your sale dates/prices, and I'll feature 'em on my social media feeds!  Just drop a note, comment, message...you get the drill. 

SpireGirl 2018 Blog Tour: Spotlight!

Hey everyone!  I'm excited to be participating in the SpireGirl 2018 tour both today and Thursday!  Click HERE for the full tour schedule so you can catch up on posts and look forward to the upcoming features.  While you're there, make sure to check out Medomfo's blog!  She has some awesome content. 

Now for the spotlight:
If you were familiar with the Robertson family back when they had their own show - Duck Dynasty - you may already know who this is because she was on a few big episodes.  For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, you'll want to look them up online because each person in their family is inspirational, and they have authored some wonderful books as well.  The inspirational lady I'm highlighting today is Mary Kate Robertson, who is married to John Luke. 

She blogs on The Little Duckwife and while she doesn't tour or speak like her sister-in-law Sadie, she often writes very worthwhile, wholesome posts.   From anything about …

Week In Review: October Farewell

How was everyone's week?  I've been busy working on graphics and some other fun plans for the rest of the year.  If you want to check into social media tomorrow, I have some exciting news for you guys, especially indie authors, and then on Tuesday and Thursday I'll have some special posts that you won't want to miss.  This means that the normal Wednesday post won't be up, but I think these ones will be more interesting!  Come to think of it, I'll also have a quick post on Monday, so I guess next week will be "every day EXCEPT Wednesday..."

ICYMI: Kellyn Roth's newest book, Beyond Her Calling, is out now. Click HERE for my review.


Currently reading: When We Were Young by Karen Kingsbury and Why Do I Believe? by Chip Ingram. This week I also read and finished The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi , the novel adaptations of the movies, and they were pretty fantastic. I also read The Love Languages of God  by Gary Chapman (thanks Netgalley!) a…

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 …
