Week In Review: Beautiful Chaos Indeed

First off, the results of the Memorial Day sale:
1 paperback copy of Welcome Home sold
63 free downloads of Beautiful Chaos
Sixty three, guys.  I am blown away.  I was excited to see FIVE downloads!  After ten months of only one person having read this book (I jokingly refer to it as the book only a writer-mama could love), now sixty three different people are reading it.  I can't even fathom it and I am so thankful to you guys!  I really hope you all enjoy it....(even though now I'm freaking out because this is the largest audience I've reached.  Yikes.)

Don't forget to leave reviews on Amazon!

Currently reading: The Rose of the Oath by Hope Ann and Stalling For Time by Gary Noesner.  So far I've been very impressed by both, and Hope Ann's book is free on Kindle right now, so I'd recommend picking it up. 

Current projects: I'm down to the last two rounds of editing for My Compass Home and the last WEEK of practices for the play at my church.  Whew.  I'm gonna go scream into a pillow right now because I'm always nervous before a play when I'm acting in it, but adding onto the fact that I wrote it?

And then helped run it?

Goodbye, cruel world.

Current Bible verse: Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen (Ephesians 4:29, NIV).  In light of the "news" this week pertaining to Samantha Bee and Roseanne Barr, I think we need to remember that.  Nothing good comes out of petty, childish insults.  Not even in the name of comedy (because name calling isn't comedic, but bullying).

Next week, I also begin my summer class in forensic psychology.   I'm interested in the book, but I don't want to do the tests and whatnot that come with it.  Or give up my summer.  *sigh* the college life.

On an upside, today I got some Bantam chicks!  I've been wanting to have some since pretty much forever, so I'm really stoked about it.

What have you guys been up to this week?

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 …
