New to CFBA

My name is David Brollier, and like almost everyone here, I'm a writer. Some of us are published, others are still working towards publication. I've proof read work by Chandra L. Smith, who at my insistance, has expanded her work. She's an awesome writer and I can't wait to get her stuff at the store. I'm currently proofing one of several works by Michelle Sutton. Again an amazing writer. I can hardly wait until these two (and there's got to be more) get published and I have the privilege of reviewing their works for CFBA.

You can find out more about me on my Christian Mystery Writer's blog, a spinoff from my Yahoo group.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cmwforum for the Yahoo group

If I'm ever doing something I'm not supposed to do PLEASE email me at davidbrollier@yahoo.com and tell me so I can correct things. You'll find me very teachable, and as far as being critiqued is concerned, thick skinned.

God bless one and all.

author of THE 3RD COVENANT

Welcome to our little blognet, David. Are you a member of ACFW? We've got a good group of mystery and suspense writers there. It's always good to see a brother when I'm surrounded by so many sisters!

Thanks Ron! Yes I am a member of ACFW. I'm also a member of ACFWnortheast and GPCFW. As to Yahoo groups I belong to CrimeSceneWriter, Book_Marketing_Christians, PCFW, Christian_fic2, Christian_Fic_WRE_Crit_Group, PublishAmerica_Authors and URNE, as well as the ACFWNortheast yahoo group.
I also can be found at www.myspace.com/dbrollier where I have around 60 friends (including Chris Wells Ted Dekker and T.L. Hines) So when do I get a chance to write? The real question is do I get a chance to sleep?

God bless you brother.


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!)


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.


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?
