Free Book!!!

I'm giving away a copy of Shirlee McCoy's newest book, Cold Case Murder. Just go to her website or blog and leave a comment about one thing you learned about Shirlee that you didn't know. It can't be something someone has already mentioned. I'll draw a winner next week. :)

This book is part of a continuity and I don't have those to give away, but perhaps you can order them if you win this one. :)

Good luck!

Submitting....ahhhh...the horror!

So back in December I was told I could resubmit my book Malicious Intent if I made some changes. I put it off for a while because of other obligations, but I finally did the revisions mailed it off last month.

I'm telling you this so you can pray for me. Not just pray that the book will meet with the editor's approval, but for me to have a peace about letting this book go. About moving on from this project. I'm at a place where I want to be productive with my writing. I desire to grow and learn as a writer. I don't want to waste my time floundering around anymore. If this book isn't what they want, then my goal is that I can just put it away with no remorse. Then I need to finish the other two that I have started. I say started but one of them is halfway finished and I'm loving it. I think it has a voice that I'm happy with and feel it's the kind of book I see myself writing even years from now. It's been easier to write too. Maybe that means something.

So pray for me to be gracious and accepting no matter what the editor says. And that I can put this project away if the answer is no.

Favorite new historical writer...

Tamera Alexander's recent release, The Inheritance, debuted on the April 2009 CBA Bestseller List and is the first historical for the WOMEN OF FAITH fiction line (Thomas Nelson). The Inheritance, a stand alone novel, is set in Colorado 1877

Sabrina here: I just finished the Inheritance by Tamera Alexander and had to share with you how much I loved it. I'm not surprised how well it was written, since I've read other books by this author. I wasn't even surprised how the author took me right into the setting and left me there for the whole story. Nope. Wasn't surprised at all. Not since Alexander has become my favorite new Historical fiction writer. This newest book was the icing on the cake.

Something I love about her writing is that it's historical without being unrealistic. Sometimes I read historicals and think, really? They really acted like that. Never once did anything improper or out of character. It seems untrue to human nature to think that just because a christian person was born in the 1800's they never did anything "unchristian" or questionable. Tamera paints a real picture. A human picture. I could easily imagine the premise of this book happening. I love her stories so much, I wish they'd make them into a television series. I'd watch it. :)

Overall, rich, vivid characters, and a beautiful setting. Throw in the faith element and you have a wonderful read!

The winner of A Cousins Promise is Cara Putman. I'll get you your book soon. I'm also giving away a copy of The Stand in Groom by Kaye Dacus. It was a great book and I know whoever wins it will love it.

I'm still waiting to hear on my submission to Love Inspired. I probably have a few months left to hear anything, so while I'm waiting I'm trying to finish Rock Bottom. It's coming along. Pray I keep the pace I've been able to set. I might be able to finish it by the middle to end of May. That's my hope anyway.

So now, leave me a comment to be entered to win The Stand in Groom and I'll pull a name in the next few days. Also, I'll be giving away Shirlee McCoy's new Love Inspired Suspense, Cold Case Murder next week.
