A Plug For a Great Company

I have come across a great publishing company that just started recently, and had their big media launch this week. It is called Endever Publishing. They help authors (whether they be seasoned authors or aspiring authors) to get published and get their message out. I  heard about it because my daughter is their media coordinator, and is doing a wonderful job for them. She has been quite busy with their launch.
So if you are an aspiring author, or a seasoned one who has not been published, go talk to them and they will help you out. Endever is a great group of people; very nice and easy to get along with. They are a community, instead of a company who doesn’t care about you. Yeah, I am biased since my daughter works for them, but I do think they are wonderful people to work for, and a great community that will work with you and help you any way they can. So if you are interested, go to their website at https://endeverpublishing.com/

I will start this blog again on Monday with different topics on each day, and maybe some book reviews and general talk. So I hope if you liked my blog before, you will come back and hopefully i’ll get some new readers.

see ya Monday

Book Review of Fatal Frost

I hate to be short but sweet, but here is a book I reviewed for Nancy Mehl called Fatal Frost. Go pick it up.

This book was well written, and an overall good book. A daughter finds out more about her father while on an FBI mission against the cartel. It has complex characters that you will fall in love with. A story of finding Christ and learning how to trust not only God, but humankind. I really enjoyed this book, and it kept the pages turning. A good read for all.

My Review Of ‘Courageous’ by Dina Sleiman

Dina L. Sleiman has written another great book in the Valiant Hearts series. It was written in the era of the Crusades and the Templars. Sir Randall and Rosalind and Lady Sapphira lead a crusade to the Middle East in search of captives, and to spread the gospel. They take children with them as well. Amidst someone with vengeance on their mind, Sir Randall and Rosalind overcome their demons of their past and fall in love, mixed in with a few battles. It is a tale of forgiveness and love. I can’t wait to read some more from Dina L. Sleiman. This was a great read, and I encourage everyone to read it as well.

I reviewed this book for Bethany House Publishing.

Lazy Monday

Today is another hot and sticky lazy day. I have been doing some gaming (Skyrim) and reading two great books: Arena, which is a fiction book about virtual gaming tournaments. The main character finds it hard separating reality from virtual, and it is a really great read from a debut author named Holly Jennings. I would highly recommend it especially if you are a gamer.

I am also reading Brad Meltzer’s book called the House Of Secrets. If you like Meltzer’s tv shows called Decoded and Lost History, you will love this book. It’s full of secrets and intrigue. It deals with an ex con, her dad, a famous tv person like Meltzer he went to go see, and now the ex con and her dad are dead. The ex con was found with a copy of Benedict Arnold’s bible in his chest, and the mystery is afoot when his daughter and son try to figure out this mystery. A must read.

Delilah: A Good Book By Angela Hunt

Angela Hunt is a great writer of fiction. I loved this retelling of Samson and Delilah. It pretty much follows the biblical account in the bible. I loved the way she weaved the story together through the eyes of both Samson and Delilah. It is a sad story of love never found and love lost, with the rebellion of Samson over his being a Nazarene, and against his family and his God during his rebellion. But Samson shows his redemption in coming back to his God when he tore the Philistine building down. Samson will always be remembered as a great judge of Israel and of Yahweh.
I really enjoyed this book, and I recommend it to fans of Christian Fiction, and especially to fans of Angela Hunt.

Read, Read, Read

The old fart has a lot of time to read. I have always enjoyed being curled up with a good book. It refreshes and invigorates your brain. I love to read christian fiction, fantasy, mystery and suspense, and sometimes if it’s good, I like to read a good historical fiction book. I also love biblical fiction. My main thrust here is getting you to read. There is nothing better than being transported to different lands and people. It’s like you’re on a journey with them. So go to your local library. Or if you have a kindle, read a book. I love to read and then review books on amazon.com . Authors will send you a book for free if you  read it and review it, plus you get to know authors that way as well.
I review for many authors. If any authors read this and want a book review, send it to me and I will review and get the word out for you. Anyway, like I was saying, I mainly want to get my readers to read more often. I love it.  That’s why this old fart is still sharp keeping my brain from rotting. So go read. Tell me what kind of books you like to read.
What’s your favorite book of all time? Waiting for your response.

Whiter Than Snow

Am I prophetical, or what? …Not! But in my AWANA class on Wednesday, I was teaching about snow. And yes, I knew they were predicting snow in the forecast, but around here, you don’t believe it till you see it. I was comparing how snow is beautiful when it’s coming down, and so ugly when it turns to slush; how it gets all black and grey, and I compared the ugly snow to our lives before Christ. I used the beautiful white snow to show that when we receive Christ’s wonderful free gift of salvation, he makes us whiter than snow. That was on Wednesday. Well, on Thursday night, it starts snowing. And on Friday, we awoke to a yard full of snow! Good timing, right?

On this blog, I am going to start reviewing books that I get sent to me for the purpose of a review. I am an avid reader (that is, when this old fart isn’t dozing on the couch). I hope you all will enjoy this, since I know a lot of you love to read as well. I will start blogging more, I promise, but this snow had me under (which you would think is a great time to do it, but I had a great time being with my family this weekend). See ya next time the old fart stirs from off his couch. I’m starting to feel all warm and cozy now. Zzzzzzzzzz.
