Annual Christmas Round-Robin Scavenger Hunt — $750 in Amazon Gift Card Prizes!

Merry Christmas! Welcome to the Christmas Christian Fiction Round-Robin!

Here’s how it works: At each author’s blog post, you will find a question that can be answered by checking out the free Amazon preview of their book. Provide the answer at this form. Note: You must answer the questions for every author in the round -robin to be considered to win the $350 first place, $250 second place or $150 third place Amazon gift cards. These prizes are USD values. If you are not a U.S. resident, you will get a gift card from the Amazon store for your country; however, it will be valued at these USD amounts.)

At the end of my post is a link to the next blog, who will provide a link to the next blog, etc., to the very end, creating a circle (a round-robin) visit through all of the authors’ blogs.

I’m thrilled to get the chance to tell you about my book Blizzard in the Bluegrass. This book is part of the When Snowflakes Never Cease Crossroads Collection and was a joy for me to write.

Jeff is a broken widower who lost his wife and child. Gloria is a single mom to Noah, an eight-year-old boy on the Autism spectrum. The two find each other and everything is perfect until a storm-of-the-century blankets Kentucky under several feet of snow and whiteout conditions on Christmas day, Gloria and Jeff batten down at her father’s house, counting their blessings and basking in the warmth of their love. Until they discover that Noah is missing. Will they find him before he succumbs to the elements, or will this day forever mark a tragedy in their lives?

I loved writing this book, because it allowed my experiences as the mom to a child on the autism spectrum to give readers a glimpse into what that life looks like, and what our mama hearts experience. I gave Gloria my mothering style and Noah my son’s personality. It is a deeply personal book for me.

Let’s begin this scavenger hunt! Go to the book on Amazon at this link. You will be taken to When Snowflakes Never Cease, but Blizzard in the Bluegrass is the first book in this collection, so you will have no problem finding it in the Look Inside.

Find the answer to this question:

What kind of mythology does Noah tell Blondie he’s fascinated with?

When you have the answer, FILL OUT THIS FORM and head on to the next blog!

Thank you so much for visiting! The next author on the tour is Lacy Williams, who is telling us all about her Christmas book A Cowboy for Christmas. You can find it at this link. Remember that you must answer every question from all 36 authors in this collection and that the round-robin will end on December 12th at 11:59 PM EST!

Monday Morning Coffee and Chat 11/4/19 – Book Releases and Thanksgiving, oh my!

Hello! Welcome to Monday morning coffee and chat!

Monday Morning Coffee and Chat! Today I’m talking about releasing VALERIE’S VERDICT, my BLIZZARD IN THE BLUEGRASS being part of the WHEN SNOWFLAKES NEVER CEASE collection and how writing a child with autism was very emotional for me, and about doing a series of whole food/real food cooking videos the week before Thanksgiving.

Blizzard in the Bluegrass!

I am thrilled to be a part of the latest Crossroads Collections book. Each collection has a shared theme or event and the final book ties them all together. The theme for the When Snowflakes Never Cease collection is a record-breaking snowstorm that hits the United States at Christmastime.

My book, Blizzard in the Bluegrass, is the story of Gloria Sutton, a divorced mom of an 8-year-old boy with autism, and widower Jeff Brock, Charula, Kentucky’s newest family practice doctor. When the storm of the century blankets Kentucky under several feet of snow and whiteout conditions on Christmas day, Gloria and Jeff batten down at her father’s house, counting their blessings and basking in the warmth of their love. Until they discover that eight-year-old Noah is missing. Will they find him before he succumbs to the elements, or will this day forever mark a tragedy in their lives?

That’s the first book in the collection. Then we also have these amazing books:

Buried Secrets by Alana Terry
Cosette travels to a remote Alaskan wilderness to finally meet the love of her life, only to discover the man she fell in love with may be a murderer. Is she his next target?

Wrong About Mr. Wright by Chautona Havig

More Than Enough by Jaycee Weaver
For single mom Ada, there’s never enough: time, money, patience, joy. She’s not enough, though compassionate Kent disagrees. When a freak snowstorm traps the couple and her three kids in a theater on Christmas, she’ll either discover her worth in Christ or crumble under the pressure.

When Snowflakes Never Cease by Amanda Tru
