It's time for another CFBA Blog tour and this week we're doing Reclaiming Nick by
Susan May Warren.

Award winning author SUSAN MAY WARREN recently returned home to her native Minnesota after serving for eight years with her husband and four children as missionaries with SEND International in Far East Russia. She now writes full time from Minnesota's north woods. Visit her Web site at

RECLAIMING NICK is the first of The Noble Legacy series. Book Two, Taming Rafe, will be available January 2008.

A Modern Day Prodigal Comes Home...


But when his father dies and leaves half of Silver Buckle--the Noble family ranch--to Nick’s former best friend, he must return home to face his mistakes, and guarantee that the Silver Buckle stays in the Noble family.
Award-winning journalist Piper Sullivan believes Nick framed her brother for murder, and she’s determined to find justice. But following Nick to the Silver Buckle and posing as a ranch cook proves more challenging than she thinks. So does resisting his charming smile.
As Nick seeks to overturn his father’s will--and Piper digs for answers--family secrets surface that send Nick’s life into a tailspin. But there’s someone who’s out to take the Silver Buckle from the Noble family, and he’ll stop at nothing--even murder--to make it happen.


“Susan May Warren once again delivers that perfect combination of heart-pumping suspense and heart-warming romance.”--Tracey Bateman, author of the Claire Everett series

If you would like to hear more about Nick, he has his own blog. Also, the first chapter is there...

I've been so behind on my reading because of my writing, that I'm not finished with this book, but I'm well enough into the story to say that I'm enjoying it immensely. From the first few pages you'll wonder what's going on. Who are these characters and what are they going to have to do with the plot?

Warren has made characters that I'm intrigued by and curious enough to keep turning the pages. What I'm finding strange is that I've only read one other book by this author. She's definitely going on my favorite author's list.

Okay, I have to confess, I'd have purchased this book just for the cover. LOL. I mean, come on!!!

Check back often, as I will be getting several reviews done in the next couple weeks.

Definitely A Crammer!

Hey, all! Look at me posting again. I also have a CFBA blog tour on Wednesday so I'll have 3 posts in less than a weeks time...go figure.

Anyway, I did it...I sent in Prescription for Murder. Sigh. As ready as I am to be done with it--it was kind of weird tonight when I didn't feel like I had to get on the computer and write. I have an assignment for the paper, but I had no fiction that had to be worked on tonight. I almost feel kinda restless.

Cara and I have talked about this and I've come to the conclusion that I work better under a little stress with a tight deadline. I'm not saying it's good to work that way, but it seems to work for me. I'm definitely a fly by the seat of my pants kinda girl. If I don't have that deadline looming over my head, I seem to just flounder around and never make any progress. On the flip side, I have found that I like outlining a little. I use to think I was a SOTP writer as far as plotting, but on this point I'm finding the outline to be a real help.

What about you? Planner or crammer?

This and That...

Hey, all. (If anybody is still reading this thing)I've been so busy with writing business that I have no "just for fun" writing time anymore. LOL. So here's what I've been up to.

This Friday I had lunch with good friend, Crystal Miller. We sat at the Cracker Barrell for like 4 1/2 hours. We joked about ordering the next meal, we'd been there so long. It was a fun time. We talked about life stuff but eventually the conversation turned to writing. Crystal and I are going to work very hard on our goals this year and we're going to keep each other accountable! (right, Crystal) ;) You heard that, Cara. So I give you permission to keep on us. LOL.

Last week I met with Jennifer Tiszai, Michelle Pendegrass and Cara Putman. It was fun to get to know Michelle as we'd never met before. She's a character. And her son was a cutie.

Jennifer is very dear to me and I was so tickled I got to see her while she was visiting our fair state. Her children were also very cute and were very good for having been in the car for the long drive. I can't wait until summer when we might get to visit again.

Cara, as always, was inspiring. I mean, really, where does the girl get her energy. I have to give Cara credit for keeping me on track. My competitive side works well with her personality. She makes me strive to do better.

I took a few days off this last week to finish some revisions on Prescription for Murder. I'm planning on sending it in on Monday. So if you're so inclined, I'd appreciate your prayers.

I've yet to decide if I'm going to enter Rock Bottom in the Genesis contest this year. I enjoyed the feedback last year, but not sure yet if there's a point to sending it in again. So I'll be needing to decide in the next few days.

Last week I got word from Rachel Hauck. I'll be interviewing her again and giving away a copy of her new book. I'm also going to have on Indiana's own, Ramona Cecil. I have a few others that I haven't actually scheduled so I hope you'll stop by often. And I'm planning on giving away a few books in the next couple weeks. The stacks are getting too tall. I'm afraid they're going to crash around me one of these days. LOL.

OH...I almost forgot. I received the new Brandilyn Collin's book Coral Moon this weekend to review. All I can say is WOW! I just started it and I can't wait to share it with you.

That's all for now. Leave a comment and let me know what you've all been up to. ;)

The Reliance by M.L. Tyndall

CFBA blog tour time...This week it's the Reliance by M.L. Tyndall

A YOUNG BRIDE separated from her husband just as a child has been conceived...

A GRIEVING HUSBAND tempted to take his anger out through the vices of his past...

A MARRIAGE AND A SHIP threatenend to be split apart by villainous Caribbean pirates...

In THE RELIANCE, Edmund Merrick tormented by the apparent demise of his pregnant wife Charlisse, sails away to drown his sorrows. He turns his back on God and reverts to a life of villainy, joining forces with the demented French pirate Collier. When his mind clears from its rum-induced haze, will Edmund find the will to escape?

Seemingly abandoned by her new husband, Charlisse battles her own insecurities as she is thrown into the clutches of the vengeful pirate Kent, who holds her and Lady Isabel captive.

Will she be swept away by the undertow of treachery and despair? Can Edmund and Charlisse battle the tempests that threaten to tear them apart and steer their way to the faith-filled haven they so desperately seek? Or will they ultimately lose their love and lives to the whirlpool of treachery and deceit?

Watch for my review of this in the coming might be surprised!!! ;)

This week the CFBA is reviewing The Watchers by Mark Andrew Olsen.

Just below the surface among the family of God lives another family tree--one traced in spirit, invisible and ageless, known as the Watchers. For two thousand years they've seen beyond the veil separating this world from the next, passing on their gift through a lineage mostly overlooked. Throughout history they've scouted the borders of the supernatural frontier, but now their survival hangs by a thread. And their fate lies in the hands of a young woman, her would-be killer, and a mystery they must solve...

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

"Congratulations. You just reached my own little corner of cyberspace.

Who am I?

Abby Sherman, that's who.

Who are you? And why are you checking me out?

Drop me a few pixels, and let's find out!"

With that innocent invitation, Abby Sherman unwittingly steps in the crosshairs of history, and thus begins her harrowing tale--taking her from ocean-front Malibu to the streets of London, the jungles in West Africa, the Temple Mount, Jerusalem, and to the very gates of heaven itself!

A sneak preview of eternity becomes her one-way ticket to danger--and discovery….

Two lives collide in a globe-circling adventure involving both peril and discovery: Abby, a young woman whose visions of heaven turn her into a Web-celebrity; and Dylan, a troubled young man sent by an ancient foe to silence her. From California beachfronts to Nigerian rain forests to Jerusalem and back again, THE WATCHERS is high-octane blends of action, mystery, and spiritual battle spanning centuries.

A woman's awe-inspiring vision launches her on a quest through distant lands and ancient history, face-to-face with eternity and into the arms of a family line on the brink of annihilation...

A man who is hired to exterminate her discovers the folly of blind loyalty, then learns how to wage war in a realm he never believed had existed...

An extraordinary saga of the unseen war against evil, the reality of the supernatural, and the transforming power of forgiveness.


"A writer who can take your breath away with a single sentence. A welcome, fresh voice that must be read!"--Ted Dekker

Tanner Snowman...

Don't you just love kids...I look at my child (Tanner)and am amazed at what I see there. He's accepting of my flaws and kindhearted. Even when I'm a grouch. Always eager to help even when I don't ask...and when I don't feel well he's always trying to cheer me up.

I have some kind of sinus thing going on and the other day he came in dressed as a Tanner Snowman to try and get me to smile. Since we got our new digital camera he's been a real ham. (my Dad bought it for me for work...thanks Dad)I often don't feel worthy of the unconditional love I get from him. I think most parents feel that way at some time or another. I am truly blessed to have him in my life. ;)

Now to put that in I bless God. As a child of God am I continually trying to please Him with my actions? Is it my desire to make Him smile? Do I bring Him joy? Hmmm. Something to think about.
