Writer: (Doubled over laughing.) You’re wearing a Santa hat?
Muse: Really? That’s your question?
Writer: At least it’s not a string of lights. I mean, the grandkids might have plugged you in!
Muse: Are you going to help me?
Writer: Hang on, I need the picture.
Muse: I can’t wait for you to go to sleep. You never know what you’ll find in your stocking.
Writer: Uh…one pic is enough. Here, let me help you.

A healing heart

A Healing Heart Now in Large Print and Audio! Contemporary Sweet Romance

 A Healing Heart is now available in audiobook   and hard cover large print!

A Healing Heart by Angela Breidenbach

A workaholic woman must trust her business
to the one man who tried to destroy it when she suffers a heart attack. Mara Keegan is an uber-successful mother and a widow of
three years. She’s been chasing success and all the “good things in
life” for her family to make up for the cruel whim God played on them by
taking her husband. In an effort to be the perfect mom, she decides to
make a photo memory quilt, a graduation present for her daughter,
Cadence.


She’s not yet finished when she experiences a heart
attack. While Mara recuperates, she revisits the choices she’s made that
led to this physically and spiritually broken heart. The memory quilt
must be finished in time for Cadence’s big day, but Mara struggles with
her burgeoning feelings for the man who must keep Mara’s business going during her recovery, Joel Ryan. Can Joel find his way into Mara’s heart and onto Cadence’s quilt?


Angela Breidenbach is the president of the Christian Authors Network and the host of Lit Up, a radio show interviewing creative experts to help creatives have a more lucrative creative career. Always family friendly, always good for the heart.

The word on the street about Captive Brides Collection with Christian Authors Network members Angela Breidenbach and Darlene Franklin is great reviews for this Barbour Publishing book with 9 historical romance stories releasing tomorrow, Oct. 1st!

Captive Brides Historical Romance Collection

Captive Brides Romance Collection featuring Angela Breidenbach and Darlene Franklin

Review: The Captive Brides Collection is a wonderful selection of nine tales dealing with captivity. Captivity may be physical, mental or spiritual. It is anything that binds us against our will. The reader travels from America to Australia, from 1655 to the late nineteenth century. The stories have similar themes of injustice, prejudice, trust, redemption, new beginnings and second chances, and fighting for freedom.

Down the ages women (and men and children) have been exploited by the greedy and the grasping. However there are good men who will fight this injustice. Good old fashioned knights in shining armour.

A perfectly delightful collection. I have my favourite. Pick up a copy today and see which one you like best. — UK reader, Julia Wilson (Read the Full review)
