ChandrasPlace: A book reveiw of A Rose From The Ashes by J.N. Graham

ChandrasPlace

This is one great place. Chandra is dedicated to lifting up the name of Jesus, especially in Christian fiction. She has some things in the works that are absolutely fabulous. You suspense fans are going to love the suspense. You romance fans are going to love the romance. She does a great job of blending the two into a balanced genre.

Putting Together U.S. Blog Tour

Okay, so I really don't have a clue at what I'm doing or how a blog tour works. Think that'll stop me? Not a chance. In the next couple of weeks or so I hope to put together a list of blogs that will take me from New York State through every other state and back to New York again. New York and California get 2 stops just because it looked good on the map.
So why am I doint this? I want to make sure every state in the U.S. of A. knows about THE 3RD COVENANT and can have a chance to talk it up among themselves or post comments on this site. If that doesn't satisfy you then email me at sonburst@juno.com
Am I tryng to sell books, well sort of. You see THE 3RD COVENANT only gives you a taste of what's to come. My WIP is a follow up using some of the same principle characters and introducing some new ones. Please, this really isn't a series. I want to be able to write books about Nat Adams that can be enjoyed no matter what order you read them in. Plus I'd like to try writing some other things as well. I have an end time suspense novel in mind that is just awesome. So what I'm really trying to sell here is not THE 3RD COVENANT (although if you like mystery/suspense you really should at least check it out of your library), I'm promoting myself.
Here are some websites that I've put together (the first may need some work):
Fellowship of the Cross (with a decided bend towards outcasts)
Soar Like An Eagle Ministries (my home church)
From the Heart of David Brollier (okay, this is to sell the book)
Last Hope Detectives (from the imagination of a young boy comes a fresh way of talking about the Gospel and things of God.

CMWforum

Christian Mystery Writers is dedicated to helping those of us writing mystery/suspense for the Lord. Hopefully I will be able to learn and link into some blog tours so that those joining here will be able to promote their works over a vast network of blogs, preferrably Christian blogs. However, it is my intent to reach beyond the boundaries of Christianity in the promotion of Christian works. Most writers, like myself, who write for Christ do so that others may come to know Him as their Lord and Savior. It kind of beats that purpose if we keep it all locked up in a Christian forum.


We do have a forum, for those Christian writers and aspiring writers called CMWforum. You can get there by going to
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CMWforum
While the goals of this site are to help with the promotion of a published work, the goals of CMWforum is to:
1. Encourage one another as they write.
2. Help with research, primarily in forensics and police proceedure.
3. Help with the actual mechanics of writing.
All Christian mystery/suspense writers are invited to join.

So that leaves this blog. Okay, I need to know how to do blog tours, to link into existing blog tours and to otherwise promote the works of all here. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Tangerine

Tangerine by Marilynn Griffith



This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is posting about Tangerine (Revell, January 2007) by Marilynn Griffith (fellow CFBA member, blogger, writer, and mother of *GULP* seven!)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Marilynn Griffith is wife to a deacon, mom to a tribe and proof that God gives second chances. Her novels include Made of Honor (Steeple Hill, Jan. 2006), Pink (Revell, Feb. 2006), Jade (Revell, June 2006), and If the Shoe Fits (Revell, 2007). Her other credits include Chicken Soup for the Christian Woman’s Soul, Cup of Comfort Devotionals and her Shades of Style series (Revell, 2006). She lives in Florida with her husband and children. To book speaking engagements or just say hello, email: marilynngriffith@gmail.com.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Tangerine is the third book in the Shades of Style Novels.

Fans of Pink and Jade will eat up Tangerine, the third book in the cutting-edge Shades of Style series. Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise design firm, doesn't like surprises. These days though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband-the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody at work knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille. But when the designer assigned to work with Jean on a line of men's suits shows up, her heart flips. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. Can her bruised heart become whole enough to love again? Or will she remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?
