Davalynn Spencer here in summertime Colorado. I’m happy to welcome prolific author Marion Stroud this week for an encore visit with a few great tips for marketing our books.
Welcome Marion! How many books do you have published and what are a few of your latest titles?
I have published 26 books in all, most recently Dear God It’s Me and It’s Urgent and It’s Just You and Me Lord. These two books of conversational prayers for women are published in the US by Discovery House and in the UK and other parts of the world by Monarch Publishers, an Imprint of Lion Hudson.

Hello from Sarah Sundin, who has a sudden longing for tea and crumpets. Why? Today’s guest, Marion Stroud, hails from my favourite country, England. Yes, I added the U for Marion’s sake. Marion is the prolific and bestselling author of 23 books, translated into many languages. This mother of five and grandmother of thirteen also serves as a British magistrate.
