Fiction Friday & Thank You!

It’s Friday and that means I want to tell you about a book I’ve recently inhaled. But first a sidenote: how on earth is it already the 19th of May! I may be hyperventilating over here!

Above is a photo of most of the book in my TBR pile. Since I will soon be past deadline on both books I’m working on, which book would you read first? Why?

Lost Chapters of Beyond Justice

It has been so fun to read reader’s reactions to the characters and story in Beyond Justice. It’s also been wild to watch my kids enjoy the audio version…It’s a little scary to wait for your sixteen-year-old’s reaction to the words you slaved over. It’s also a little unnerving to begin to see what friends and readers think of the book. Some …

So I have a question. Anyone interested in doing a book study with me this summer? Either Wild & Free or Galatians? If you are leave a comment below and I’ll start organizing the details. And if you like audio books like I do, you can buy the ebook for $1.99 (as of 5/4), and add the WhisperSync for about $4.
