Week In Review: Tumbling into March

Hey everyone, and happy weekend!  So I'm going to try doing a little "week in review" post on Saturdays, mostly just about what I've been up to this week. goes!

Currently reading: "A Novel Idea" by Tyndale Publishing.  Great resource for writers planning to write Christian fiction; I'll be writing a review post for it once I'm finished reading it!

Current projects: Um, too many?  I'm working on "My Compass Home" which will be the second book in the Faith, Hope, and Love collection.  I'm also working on "Something New" for Mount Sterling and a yet-untitled book of short stories and poems. Oh, and a manuscript I intent to send to publishing houses this year (I hope), which I plotted out this week. 

Current Bible verse: "Where God guides, He provides" --Isaiah 58:11.  I think this is an important thing to remember.  If anyone is feeling uncertain about the path you feel God is leading you to, remember this verse. 

This week, I had a KDP Select freebie promo for "Everything I Never Said" which went pretty well: six copies downloaded and an equal amount of shares on Facebook.  Shout-out to everyone who downloaded copies or shared the post (sharers being my mother, father, and brother--thanks guys!) I reached an all-time high on my Facebook page stats, drawing a crowd of 70 viewers for the posts--wow!  If anyone downloaded a copy of the book, please feel free to leave a review on Amazon.  Those reviews count! 

I also put a new banner up for the blog and Facebook page using Canva, and I must say...I'm in love with it.  Your thoughts? 

On top of all of this (far more interesting stuff) I also had a truckload of college work and essays to work on this week.  Oh, midterm season, how I loathe you.  I still have two essays to work on before tomorrow; so much for a weekend or a break or...relaxation in general.  Oof. did your week go?  Sound off in the comments below or feel free to message me!  I love hearing from you guys.

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.


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 …
