Winter's Respite Readathon: The Picks

Readathon Picks


Here's my list of possible suspects for the next 2-weeks:


1st Up was War of the Heart (A Snow Globe Christmas) by Jenna Victoria. Finished it and reviewed in earlier post. Visit post here.

2nd Up is Grey by E.L. James. The subject and genre is a complete departure from the last book I read, War of the Heart, but it does have a Christian in it! I've been curious about this one for some time and decided it was time to see if the story could hold up to the success of the previous ones. So far, I'm not impressed…

3rd Up is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I know what you're thinking: What's taken you so long to get around to this one, Suzanne? Everyone has read this already, eons ago! And that is exactly why it's on my list, thank you very much.

4th Up is And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. This one's been sitting around my house gathering dust, watching other books come and go. While I thoroughly enjoyed both Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, for some reason, I pass over this one every time I'm looking for something to read. Well, no more excuses… unless I just can't get to it before the 2 weeks are up. We'll just have to see, won't we?

I'll be mighty impressed with myself if I get through all of these, 'cause this author (yeah, that's me) has her own writing to do. I'm editing my 2nd novel to send to my editor. Wish me luck!

What have I written? I'm glad you asked. Check out Saving Toby here.

The deets in case you missed them on my earlier post:

Marriage is NOT beautiful

I can't take the credit for this, but the words are so true I had to share.

How many people will smile today because of you?

A challenge
In our busy, fast-paced world, I'd like to offer you this challenge: Make a conscious effort to make the people you come across during your day smile. 

My husband is a natural smile-maker, and a champion of making people feel good about themselves. He has a smile, a greeting, and kind words for everyone he meets during his day — the clerk at the deli, the men and women he sees briefly, who sign work orders — and he's liable to break into song and dance at any given time, around perfect strangers. Because of this, many, many people enjoy his company.

I find the more I smile, the more uplifted and positive I feel at the end of the day. It's such a good feeling, I wish everyone could experience it. The truth is, a smile is such a simple, easy thing to share.

In case you need a few suggestions, try these: Smile and say good morning, hello, or have a great day!Not only hold the door for someone, but step back and let them go first.Say something nice about someone's c…

Keeping Claudia Update

Get your tissues ready

I found myself crying as I finished re-reading my edit copy of Keeping Claudia. These characters have come to mean so much to me, they're like family.

It looks like release will be… (fingers crossed) sometime in April. I really hope you guys will love this story as much as I do.

Your Song sung by Lee Mead (originally by Elton John) was a strong inspiration during the writing.
