Christys invite

The Christy Award team invites you to two events that celebrate fiction, both held on November 7, 2018 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN!

First, from 1-5:30pm, is the Art of Writing Conference – a focused conference for writers, storytellers, and publishing curators. This is a half day of intensive seminars that celebrate the creative life, provide practical tips for overcoming challenges in a rapidly-changing industry, and answer questions authors are asking. Head here for a full list of speakers, including Carla Laureano, Joanne Bischof, Donald Miller, and Charles Martin.

Then, starting at 7:00pm, The Christy Award Dinner Gala will celebrate the art of Christian fiction, announce the 2018 winners of The Christy Award, and honor the power of Story, the legacy of Madeleine L’Engle, and the year’s best in Christian fiction.

Wanna know which authors will be at The Christy Awards gala? How about Charles Martin, Carla Laureano, Francine Rivers, Sarah Arthur, and Cynthia Ruchti, for starters?

Many of the finalists will be there too so make sure you follow The Christy Award on social media for the big announcement on the 19th!

BLOGWORDS – SPECIAL EDITION – SOLD OUT

BLOGWORDS – SPECIAL EDITION – 25% OFF SALE

 

“When you pretend to be something you’re not, it always finds you out.”

* new cover coming soon

 

“Don’t ever be ashamed of who you are. Don’t ever, for anyone, hide your true self. Know your true self, and shine like God made you to be.”

 

My debut novel, Tessa, has a double birthday; at the prompting and with the help of a friend, I first released her in early March 2014, but for Kindle only. I quickly learned the value of having print copies, and with the help of that same friend (who did all the formatting for me) I released and had all the celebration in October.

 

Tessa’s official book birthday is 31 October, which is fitting for the story—she assumed an identity not her own, thus “wearing a mask.”

 

And now, after more than one cover version, she’s getting a brand new look! And the remaining books I have on hand need to go—for the low, low price of only $15!! *regular $20 each

 

I only have ONE COPY of each book in the series left—comment below or message on me Facebook to get your signed copy today!

BLOGWORDS – Wednesday 15 August 2018 – WREADING WEDNESDAY – FEATURED BOOK COVER REVEAL– WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME by PEPPER BASHAM

WREADING WEDNESDAY – FEATURED BOOK COVER REVEAL – WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME by PEPPER BASHAM

 

Welcome to the official COVER REVEAL blitz for When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! When You Look At Me is the 2nd book in the Pleasant Gap Romance series and releases in October 2018.

 

THE BLURB:

An unexpected mother-to-be

A romance-leery composer

And a forgotten melody from the past that holds the keys to their futures.

When Julia Jenkins’ great aunt dies and leaves her a Victorian mansion with decades of secrets, Julia never expects to unearth a World War 2 espionage mystery. Struggling with her own past since an assault left her pregnant, her future as a solo parent leaves her dreams uncertain. The inheritance from her great aunt gives Julia the ability to take a step back into her future, but also sends her into the discovery of a love story she’d never anticipated. Following her aunt’s cryptic journal, Julia uncovers some oddly written piano music with a musical code she can’t decipher on her own. Not to worry, introverted Englishman and composer, Henry Wright, is thrust on the scene by a pair of homespun matchmakers who know the ‘right’ man for Julia’s wounded heart.

Henry arrives in Pleasant Gap with the task of composing the soundtrack for his best mate’s newest film. The Jenkins’ family’s southern welcome and gregarious personalities set his reticent nature on edge, but he’s inexplicably drawn to his gentle and music-loving hostess, Julia. Uncertain how to build a friendship with the wounded woman, and rather hopeless in communicating well through words, the bond of music becomes a bridge between her uncertainty and his awkwardness.

But her broken past and his families’ expectations build a wall much greater than the cultures that separate them. As they work together to solve a musical mystery from the grave, will an unlikely romance from the past inspire their hearts to trust in a God who’s written the perfect melody for their lives?

BLOGWORDS – Monday 25 June 2018 – SPECIAL EDITION – KNEWBIE KNEE-BIE #2

SPECIAL EDITION – KNEWBIE KNEE-BIE #2 or ON KNEE SURGERY and BEING IN HOSPITAL ON MY BIRTHDAY

 

The battle for identity…          

            … one story at a time.

 

 

Except that it’s not my birthday this time. Or maybe it’s the birthday present that keeps on giving.

 

‘Cause it will. Being able to walk NORMALLY for the first time in my life?? I’d call that a gift tantamount to a miracle. Nah, let’s just call it what it is—a MIRACLE.

By this time tomorrow I will be in hospital and in the operating room.

By noon, I’ll be in recovery or on my way to my own room. And by late afternoon, they’ll have me on my feet for the first try at taking a step!

Do you know how excited this makes me? How happy I am to finally be having this surgery???

 

All this to say that, combined with my recent year-long writing frenzy, the blog will be on actual break through August. Other than my July Man Blitz, which has been deferred to August this year, and reviews as I am able, my time will be devoted to rest and recovery—both the Knewbie Knee-bie and my brain!

 

 

“Maybe you have to know the darkness to truly appreciate the light.”—Madeline L’Engle
