Some Surprising Book Facts

Posted May 26, 2015 / 2 Comments

I don’t know how accurate these statistics are. I mean, I did get them from the internets and we all know that you can believe everything you read there, right? 🙂 But even if they are just fractionally true, they are pretty startling. Where do you think we have gone […]

Don’t tell anyone… but Jake’s my favorite. At least, he was until his brothers Bo or Ty shared the page with him.  Then, it’s anybody’s guess.  I suppose – like their lovable momma would insist – they’re each my favorite in their own way.  Bo with his steady, faithful “true”-ness.  Ty […]

After my interview with Melanie Dickerson where I admittedly drooled all over both of us, my husband politely informed me that I am allowed one flailing/gushing/drooling interview. That was his kind and gracious way of telling me that I had met my quota. Perhaps I should have begged him for […]

Review: To Win Her Favor by Tamera Alexander

Tamera Alexander has done it again – spun history, romance, and characters into a story so rich you might be tempted to stick it in a vault for safekeeping.  Except read it first. And then don’t stick it in a vault because it’s just a book and people might think […]

A New Little Superhero

I’ve been a bit absent in blogdom this week.  There’s a reason for that – a great reason, actually! My baby brother had a baby! Ok, so his wife was the one who actually delivered the baby but still…the point is, I have a brand new nephew! He gave his mommy a […]

Happy 85th Anniversary, Nancy Drew!!
