Greetings from Colorado. Davalynn Spencer here, enjoying summer’s green carpet and evening rains in the high country. It’s my pleasure today to welcome author Darlene Franklin. Darlene has just reached an amazing milestone of 1 million books sold! That’s an incredible achievement. Darlene is visiting with us today, sharing about her featured book, New England Courtship.
Darlene, tell us a little about your book.
New England Courtship is the first book in the “Darlene Franklin Primer: the ABCs of Romance” series in which I delight in telling the stories of my native state, Maine. Read More →
Hello from Marti Pieper! We’ve just finished the hottest week of summer (so far), although “hot” in Seneca, South Carolina, doesn’t feel anything like it did in Mount Dora, Florida (near Orlando) where I lived until this past November. And I don’t imagine it’s any hotter where today’s interviewee lives in North Carolina, either. I’ve known Eddie Jones for, well, a long time now! We first met when we were both teaching at the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference, and we’ve continued to see each other at similar events here and there along the way. Today, I want to welcome Eddie to the CAN blog!
I’m glad you’re with us today, Eddie. Would you please tell us about your featured book?
Once more, Ricky Bradshaw sails back to the age of piracy via an “absence seizure”¾a trance-like state of daydreaming. Normally those who suffer from “absence episodes” cannot remember what happens. In Ricky’s case, he remembers everything while he is sailing the Caribbean Sea as he is being chased by pirates. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin, still sheltering-in-place in California. Sigh. Today I have the joy of virtually escaping my cocoon in an interview with adventurous multi-published author Kathy Cassel. Kathy has lived all over the world as an Air Force wife, has adopted children from Haiti, and learned to scuba dive just so she could write a book!
Kathy, please tell us about your new Young Adult book, Freerunner.
Kia Scott uses freerunning to escape memories of the abuse she suffered at age six. When her abuser steps back into her life, things get out of control leaving her to choose between running or finding the courage to speak out and save another child from the same kind of abuse she faced. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California. In times like these—who else is tired of hearing that phrase?—in times like these, no matter where we stand, all Christians can agree on one thing. We. Need. To. Pray. It is my honor today to interview author Elaine Helms, who has not only dedicated her ministry to prayer, but to teaching others to pray. In that vein, she’s sharing about a very timely book.
Welcome, Elaine! Please tell us about your book, Prayer 101, What Every Intercessor Needs to Know.
This tenth anniversary edition is a comprehensive guidebook for discovering how to pray as God intends—with eternal impact. You’ll journey through Scripture, find inspiration in the stories of others, and learn simple, effective strategies for prayer. While for beginners, it is also a challenging refresher for the seasoned believer. Read More →
Hello from Colorful Colorado. Davalynn Spencer here with guest author Linda Kozar who will be sharing a little of her author’s journey.
The publisher, DaySpring, has this to say about Linda’s featured book, Sunshine for the Soul, Morning Devotions to Warm the Heart.
Written in the light and humorous style of our farmhouse devotions, yet still packed with inspirational insights and truth, this devo will be a treasured coffee-ring-stained companion to start the day. This book is for anyone who enjoys a cup of coffee, a sunrise, a quiet moment with God and wink and a smirk at the day to come.
What a great lead-in, Linda. What was the reason you wrote this particular devotional book?
To brighten someone’s day with an encouragement from God’s Word, and to bring a smile to their day. Read More →
