And the winners are…

Yay! We have some winners to announce! A big “thank you” to everyone who stops by and enters to win the books of my author friends. I really appreciate you all! And now, drumroll please…

The winner of the mystery novel The Secret of the Love Letters by K. Dawn Byrd is…

Ruth Cox!

And the winner of Diana Brandmeyer’s historical romance A Bride’s Dilemma in Friendship, Tennessee is…

Ginger!

Congratulations, Ruth and Ginger! Dawn and Diana will be contacting you shortly regarding your win.

Again, thank you to everyone who stops by and enters to win. I am taking a break this week due to an abundance of things on my plate. I will be back next week with a new movie review, inspirational post, and giveaway. You won’t want to miss my next giveaway – its from a talented author whose book will touch your heart! Also, if you haven’t read it already, my most recent devotional The Game of Life was written by my tween daughter (her first ever devotional!) and can be found here.

In the meantime, would you please pray for my mom? She broke her shoulder in five places during a hiking trip a couple days ago. She is in an intense amount of pain, and may require surgery on Monday if the bones don’t fuse together on their own. Sadly, her prognosis of ever having use of her arm again is low. But we serve an awesome God – the Great Physician – and we are praying for complete healing for her. Would you join me in that prayer and for wisdom and direction for the doctor? Thank you SO much and I’ll see you next week!

Wooooo hoooooo!!!!!

After days of keeping a close watch on our local UPS man, my author copies for Hailee finally arrived! Wooo hoooo!!!!! Guess I’ll have to quit pestering the UPS guy for awhile. 🙂

There is just something SO exciting for an author to hold her published book for the first time! After dreaming up characters, writing scenes, and editing chapters, the dream has finally become a reality!

I absolutely cannot wait for readers to revisit the characters who call Pine Haven their home in the final installment of my Montana Skies  Series. There are new characters as well, including my heroine, Hailee Annigan.

Hailee is set for release on September 1, however, word on the street is that it’s already available in a number of places, including Amazon and some local bookstores. Awesome!

Thank you for sharing my excitement with me. Have a great week!!!!
