Hope you enjoy this new book, my first foray into non-fiction. It’s a very personal look at how God has blessed me over the years. Hopefully it will be a comfort or encouragement to someone who might be trudging through a valley instead of basking in the glorious sunlight of a mountaintop. Or maybe it will just be the source of some practical tips to serve you well as you make your own journey through this life. Here is the amazon link: Beyond Blessed
Congrats to Janae Smith, Michelle Powell, & Vanessa Deneen! You have all won a Grace Walton Inspirational Romance. I’m on my to the Post Office to put your book in the mail right now. I sure hope you enjoy your reading your new novel!
I’m delighted to report that Mercy’s Heart is building a loyal group of readers. As a novel it combines so many elements that folks looking for in a historical romance but are hard to find. For one thing it relies on reality. I don’t know about you but I find some inspirational just too sweet and unrealistic to enjoy.
I think a hero should be a man not a saint. I believe that even heroines in Christian themed romance shouldn’t be mindless child like parodies. I wrote ‘Mercy’s Heart’ with those ideas in mind.
Today I’m so thankful. I write in my Thankful Journal almost every day. But today I took an especially long time detailing all my blessings. If you’re like me, you sometimes need to stop and really focus on the things and people in your life to appreciate them. Just taking those few seconds to think about my family, friends, and circumstances fills me with gratitude.
One of the things I was most thankful for today was the nice reception folks are giving my new novel, Hollister’s Choice. I’m so glad readers are finding it to be heartwarming as well as rooted in our shared faith.
Because its being so well-received, I thought I’d tell you a little behind the scenes information about the novel. Specifically about the cover artist and model. Ramona Lockwood is the cover artist on this book. She’s a wonderful graphic artist who always does a stellar job. Ramona is fast, professional, and most of all really a nice person. The model is Jimmy Thomas who’s also a joy to work with. Jimmy has been the cover model for several of my other books [The Last Broken Promise, Carried Away, and The Last Rose Pearl]. He’s won all kinds of awards for his work. He’s kind of a legend in the romance cover world. The image for this post is one of his headshots.
If you’d like to know more about these folks, I’ll post a link for their websites here:
Again, please let me express my gratitude to those of you who have become loyal readers of my novels. God has been so good to me. I pray you are feeling His love every day, just like I do. Thank You and Bless You.
