About Julia

I am happily married and we have four grown up children and  three gorgeous granddaughters.

I live in a small Worcestershire town in England, and share my home with my husband, daughter, son-in-law, two granddaughters and seven cats. It’s a busy household!

I have always loved reading, and just want to share all the great books that I read. I am also a crazy cat lady, and cannot imagine living in a house without cats!

I also love Jesus, and love going to my large and lively church. As a Christian, I will not read and review any books that I would find offensive or that I would not be willing to have displayed at church!

I am definitely a bookaholic… I have hundreds, if not thousands if you include my kindle, of books waiting to be read. I am afraid that if I see a book I like, I tend to buy it! And if people recommend a book and it’s in a series… I buy the series!

I hope you enjoy my selection of books.

Happy reading.

  1. How do you select your books. I’ve just recently published my first book Hidden Scars by Amanda Sue King. I’ve gotten great reviews so far, but I’m very interested in hearing what someone with your experience would have to say about my work.

    • Hi Amanda
      I choose books to review that appeal to me. I also sign up for blog tours, and authors get in touch and ask me if I would like to read their books.I have looked at your book on Amazon UK, it sounds good.I would be more than happy to read and review it, if you want me to.
      Blessings

      • Hi Julia,

        I recently wrote an inspirational memoir, An Ordinary Life, Extraordinary Spark. I am trying to share the positive message, and would love to have you review it. If you are interested in reading it, I am happy to provide you a copy.

        Regards,
        Julie

        • Hi Julie
          I tried to email you but the email address given doesn’t work. I would love to read and review your book 🙂 Please can you FB message me or provide another email address and I will send you my address? Thank you. XX

      • Hi Julia,

        I know that you are probably inundated with review requests, but I’d like to offer a debut Christian resource for a book review. The book is Thanks for Asking: Equipping God’s people with answers to life’s tough questions. Author Mike Larsen provides answers to some tough questions asked about the Bible and about God. Would you be willing to do a book review?

    • Hi Julia,

      Would you be interested in a book that attempts to answer some of the big questions that skeptics and new believers often get stuck on? “God, Are You, There?”, my first book has just been released on Amazon an in it I try to just that – provide answers to some basic questions, such as why God allows evil to go unchecked and even more basic ones, such as is God trustworthy. It’s written in a conversational style and covers some of the basics of the Christian faith while also attempting to engage the curious,seeking reader. I would really value your opinion as someone who reads so many Christian books. Thanks for the consideration,

      Bruce Hartley

      • Thank you for the offer Bruce but I am snowed under with books to read at the moment. I wish you well with your book sales. XX

  2. Greetings Julia from sunny Florida, USA! We are a part of another group and that is how I found you. I’ll go back and read your review. I also LOVE Cats! Where I live (apt) I can only have one cat and so love her I do. One of the reasons I checked out your site was do to being a Book-aholic too.

    • Hi Denise
      I hope you find some good books on here. Good to know a fellow bookaholic. I do recognise you from another group 🙂
      Love
      Julia. XX

  3. Hello again Julie, I have actually been very ill and exhausted. God bless you for being so kind as to read and review for authors. Reviews are not easy to obtain yet help so much. If you are not too busy you may be interested in reading one of my Inspirational Christian Romances. There is “Discovering Treasure” And “Cherished Encounter” both available in Kindle on permanent special. Love and blessings.

  4. Hello

    I’m working with Heather Blanton at her site http://www.ladiesindefiance.com. She has a novella coming out September/October 2016 and I am trying to get the word out with bloggers that would be interested in hosting her for a Q&A or guest post.

    I am also trying to set up some book reviewers to read her novella, entitled Ask Me to Marry You, a MALE-Order Bride Story. I would have pdf files available soon but nothing else is out yet.

    Here is her Amazon site: http://amzn.to/1PBRehM

    If you are interested, please let me know THANK YOU!

  7. Hi Julia,
    Your son did a great job on your blog! I know you’ve got a ton of books to review, but if you’re open to adding one more to your stack, readers are having a lot of fun with my YA/Suspense series. (Christian fiction). I’m getting comments like,
    “Stayed up all night to finish it!”
    “Nonstop action!”
    “This book was SO good!”

    I just finished the third book in the series, but I’d be happy to start you at the beginning, if you prefer. I can send ebooks or print copies (except for my new release which goes live next week; the print copy isn’t available yet, but will be soon.)

  9. Julia,
    I am writing to offer you a free review copy of my novella “Dreams of Heaven”. http://bit.ly/dreamsofheaven

    “Dreams of Heaven” takes you on a fantastical journey with Jesus, who leads the way through an alternate interpretation of his ancient teachings and applies them to one of our worst nightmares—being separate from the ones we love.

    The book releases August 5, 2017. You would be one of the first to read “Dreams of Heaven”, which has been described as “…one of those gems of spiritual literature that becomes a permanent fixture in our lives…heartfelt and deeply moving,” by reviewer Hal Zina Bennett, Ph.D., Best-selling Spiritual Author.

    I would be glad to send you an uncorrected advance reader’s copy or an ebook (epub or mobi). After reading the book, I hope you will write a review and/or announce it on your website. Some of the reviews will be featured in the final printed version.

  10. Hi Julia

  14. Hi Julia,

    What if the only way to escape the darkness was to show the people you love what caused it?

    The idea for my novel, Parting Gifts, comes from years of delivering Meals on Wheels to elderly people alone and in need at the end of their lives. My imagination took over, and I created a fictional story of a woman trying to find peace in her final days.

    I would greatly appreciate hearing your thoughts on my story.

    Tracy

  15. Hi Julia,

    Thanks so much for your wonderful blog. Amazing how you infuse each of your reviews with so many pearls of wisdom

    I hoping you’ll have an interest in reviewing Theodora’s Children, the second book in the Tales Of Hope series. It’s aimed at younger readers and is meant to show them where hope lies in seemingly hopeless situations.

    You can find out more about Theodora’s Children at this link: http://www.dancingpenbooks.com/theodoras-children

    Thanks so much for considering. Blessings, Rick

  16. Hello Julia,
    I am a Christian Romance author and stubble upon your blog while searching for blog tours. I have a romantic thriller called The Path of the Chosen Warriors about to do an AMAZON COUNTDOWN PROMO FROM THE 19-22 and wonder if you could be interested in doing a Q&A or a review for me. YOu can email me and let me know what you are able to do. I thank you also.

  17. Hi Julia,
    Thank you for your work and sharing great books! I am also an author whose novel Grace Group was released June of this year. I would be honored if you’d consider reading/reviewing it. The feedback would be very much appreciated! Thanks,
    Carrie

  18. Hi, Julia. I have a controversial new book coming out that’s getting rave reviews on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35613157-a-conspiracy-of-breath

    Let’s start with the controversy.

    It’s an ancient controversy that’s existed for for hundreds of years. People have wondered about the anonymous author of the Epistle to the Hebrews. Many scholars (Hoppin, Harnack, Scheile) believe it was Priscilla, wife of Aquila, and companion and fellow-worker with Paul.

    One thing is for sure: Paul himself did not write Hebrews.

    Dr. Gilbert Bilezekian, mentor of Bill Hybels, has endorsed Latayne C. Scott’s book, A Conspiracy of Breath. Could it have been because of the role of women in the New Testament began to be suppressed in later centuries, that Hebrews lost its author’s name?

    “In a richly-textured, controversial and provocative literary work, award-winning author Latayne C. Scott examines: What would it have been like to be a woman, a Gentile, and someone onto whom the Holy Breath moved – to produce what became the mysterious Epistle to the Hebrews in the Bible?”

    Would you please consider reviewing it if I send you a PDF? And I will certainly provide an autographed copy if you want when it is released.

    And I would love to do a giveaway for you.

    Here is a meme: https://www.dropbox.com/s/64bk8i3x7ysnf6l/Priska.mp4?dl=0

    Thank you so much,
    Latayne C. Scott

  19. Hi Julia,
    Thank you for your lovely blog and your obvious enthusiasm for Christian books! As a Christian author I just wanted to say people like you are so important in extending God’s Kingdom. Especially here in the UK. I have recently published my second book, The Lie and wondered if you would consider reviewing it? I would really value your opinion. Please email me if you are interested.
    Best wishes,
    L R Clarke.

  20. Hi Julia, my name is Mark Taylor, and Christian Bookaholic was recommended to me as a popular web site for the discussion of Christian books.
    There are so very many wonderful books to be read, reviewed, shared, and discussed, that I wanted to give you the early scoop on one that I really think will be a great read for Christians and even non-Christians alike. A publishing expansion project is under way for a new non-fiction book called “What’s the Deal with Christians? – 117 Straightforward Answers to Challenging Questions about God, Christians, and Our Faith”. The book is already complete and available, but currently only in digital format. In order for it to be released in print format, a KickStarter campaign is running at https://goo.gl/tR9E7U, where people can not only contribute to the project, but also find out more about the book, read a free sample, buy their own copy, and of course spread the word.
    God has led me in this long project, and now that it is ready to take the next step, I would be honored to hear that you are interested in letting your readers be some of the first to find out about this, so that they can go check out this brand new work for themselves. Of course, if you are interested in reviewing the book yourself, I would be even more honored to provide you with a complimentary copy.
    Here’s to more books that reach the world with the Good News! Have a great day.

  21. Hi Julia,

    I wanted to thank you for reviewing my first two Howard County mysteries and let you and your readers know that, yes, there is a third novel in the works, as well as a fourth.

    HCM #3 is titled “Ice on the Bay.” We are finishing up final editing and hope to release it by the end of this year. Unfortunately, my editor-wife Kathleen (who will also be credited as a co-author on the book) has had some health problems over the past couple of months, so it’s been slow going. But we will get it done just as soon as we can.

    HCM #4 is in the early stages of writing. I also have two other works in progress, an SF/humor novel and a crime/humor novel.

    Thank you again!

    –Dale

  22. Good day,
    I pray I find you well.
    I am a Christian author, I write about subjects ranging from theology to culture. I am writing in order to ask whether you are currently reviewing books, if so what genre or otherwise if you can direct me to anyone who is currently reviewing.

    As a just in case FYI: my books are available at the following sites:

    Thank you for your time and attention,
    Ken Ammi

  23. Hi Julia,

    I’m Parker J. I am reaching out to see if you would be interested in reviewing my newest release called Time to Say Goodbye. It can be described as a sweet inspirational romance. I would be happy to send a copy to you if you are interested.

    Also, thank you for letting the comments be seen by others. I was able to reach out to an author whose book looks ESPECIALLY tantalizing. I have a podcast where I showcase Christian authors and I’m always open to meeting new authors so thank you! Hopefully, they will give me the opportunity to interview them.

    Thanks in advance for your consideration.

  24. From the comments here it seems your cats might have some serious lap time while you read! My new release is The Wisdom Tree, an allegory about an olive tree chosen, planted and nurtured by the Master of the Garden (of Gethsemane) for a special purpose. He has an unseen wise worm friend who nourishes him with tunnels of Scripture, and eventually meets Teacher – who bears a strong resemblance to Master.

    Like everyone else here, I hope to add reviews and would be very happy to send whatever form you like. Here is the Amazon link to give you a taste. https://www.amazon.com/Wisdom-Tree-Lisa-Worthey-Smith/dp/1546400893/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1510449167&sr=8-1&keywords=the+wisdom+tree+book

    Thanks for helping so many share their stories!

    Blessings,

  25. Hi Julia,
    I would love you to look at ‘Pog and the King’s Armour’. It is not exactly a Christian book, but having loved CS Lewis since I was a child, this is my own ‘Narnia’. Similar to Lewis, I have hidden discussion points within the text. I hope parents, teachers and guardians can use it to guide younger readers in spiritual discussion. The feedback I have is that the points are well-hidden and don’t detract from the flow. Indeed, as the grandfather (and bedtime reader) of seven grandsons a primary aim was to create an absorbing children’s story, I am confident I ticked that box.

    • It sounds really great Eric 🙂 I have had a look at it your Amazon link. I will bear it in mind but have rather a huge TBR pile at the moment. XX

  26. I have published a novel that takes a positive but critical look at religion through the lens of science fiction. It is written in the same vein as The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and has been praised by reviewers for its clever examination of Jesus.

    The book is called Burnt Jesus, and you can check it out on all online platforms. It posits the idea that there are alternate realities where other Jesusi dies for our sins in different ways. The narrative plot is a murder mystery and includes a trip to Hell to confront Lucifer. I would be happy to send you a review mobi if you are interested in reading and reviewing it.

    I used the penname of Landon Alspiret to write Burnt Jesus as my other books are written for middle schoolers and this book wouldn’t fit in with those 21 books. If any of those books are of interest please let me know.

    I am a writer who is determined to produce works that are thought provoking and have heart. If you take the time to read some of my reviews, you’ll see that readers are really picking up on my sincere approach.

    • Hi Brian

      Thank you for your kind offer. I am afraid that as I do not read the genre of sci fi, I would not be the right person to read and review your novel. I thank you for thinking of me and wish you well with your sales.

      Blessings

  27. Hello Julia,
    Would you be willing to read and review my novel The Wager? I write under the pen name Laura Lamy (rhymes with Sammy). It is an action/adventure Regency romance, with a Christian perspective. I have been reading Georgette Heyer for 30+ yrs, and tried to write the story in her mode. (Though not at her level of course.) Because you are also English, as she was, and no doubt an appreciator of her work, I would be especially interested to know what you think of my effort. The Wager is available through Amazon and Kindle, but I would be pleased to mail you a copy if you would like. Thank you.
    P.S.
    I also did the cover art. I tried to illustrate the picture in the style (especially the aesthetic) of the artist who did the dust jacket for Georgette Heyer’s Charity Girl, E.P. Dutton & Co., N.Y., 1970. I could not find his/her name in a “cover art by” credit line and, regretfully, can not give you his/her name. But, once again, I would be most interested to have your opinion.

  28. Hi Julia,

    I’m writing to share a compelling story about a female Muslim refugee and her story of escape, rescue and converting to Christianity. Her story culminates in her book out now with HarperCollins, Stranger No More: A Muslim Refugee’s Story of Harrowing Escape, Miraculous Rescue, and the Quiet Call of Jesus (Thomas Nelson / HarperCollins). The remarkable true story of Annahita Parsan’s fight against brutal and debilitating oppression, fleeing Iran across the mountains into Turkey, spending months in the terrifying Agri prison before an astonishing release and life-changing flight to Europe, where she and her two children found freedom, hope, and Christianity.
    Parsan is now the leader of two congregations in Sweden and has baptized hundreds of former Muslims since her own conversion. Filled with unthinkable circumstances, hope and a happy ending, Stranger No More leads readers toward the same call that Annahita heeds today: using her past to save others from theirs.

    Would you be interested in exploring a piece on this? I’d be happy to send you a copy of the book. For more information, visit http://www.StrangerNoMoreBook.com.

    Thanks in advance!

  33. Hi Julia, I recently wrote a Christian fiction novel called ‘The Armoire’. Here’s the blurb on it:
    Maxine, a psychology major from Wisconsin, has always wondered what her grandmother kept locked away in her armoire. But when she inherits it, Maxine unlocks something divine and wonderful that’s to lead her to the answer of her life’s biggest question – what is my purpose? She embarks on a journey that opens her eyes, opens her heart, and lights a fire in her soul. She’s shown things that people only dream of, as well as the things of nightmares. Inspired, Maxine sets her life on a new course, but life comes with pain, just as it does joy. Shaken by a devastating discovery, she has to learn to trust God to go where she cannot and protect who she cannot. Will she be able to stay the course, or will the discovery be too much for her to bear?
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1632134187
    It got a 5 star Readers Favorite rating and several great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.
    Would you be willing to review it? If so, you can email me and let me know which format you’d prefer.
    Thanks and Merry Christmas!!!

  35. Hi Julia!!
    Greetings!
    My name is Wendy Saddler, with Authors Large and Small. We help promote up and coming authors, ranging from historical fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, Christian fiction, YA, suspense, and much more. We would like to introduce you to some very brilliant up and coming authors, named John Fischer, entitled Fearless Faith: Living Beyond the Walls of Safe Christianity, Poems for All Occasions, by Linda Mangram, Jeffrey Checker’s, “A Trial by Fire: My Walk into Hell and Back”, Right in the Middle, But Left Out, by Jeffrey Checker, and Larry Higdon’s The Storms of Deliverance, and The School From Hell. Check out these books below, and see how special and powerful they are
    https://www.amazon.com/Fearless-Faith-Living-Beyond-Christianity/dp/0736907475
    Christian radio, Christian television, Christian schools, and Christian activism have created a cushion that protects believers from a world that often ridicules Christian beliefs and values. Is this the life of faith Christ’s followers are called to? Christian leader and musician John Fischer challenges believers to break out of the safety zone and share Christ through acts of love, intelligent conversation, and genuine compassion. Readers will discover how they can…
    • meet and connect with the lost
    • face danger with excitement by depending on Jesus
    • understand what it truly means to be “set apart”
    Fearless Faith offers the encouragement and tools Christians need to step out in faith and point people to the salvation found in the Jesus.

    Poems for All Occasions, by Linda Mangram
    In this book of poems, Laura draws from her own personal experiences, and shares with her readers, just Who it was that gave her strength to face the obstacles and challenges that came her way. Check out the information from Amazon and see for yourself just how special this book is
    https://www.amazon.com/Poems-All-Occasions-Linda-Mangram/dp/1641661704/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1517601610&sr=8-1&keywords=Poems+for+All+Occasions+by+Linda+Mangram
    “We read for many different reasons. For Inspiration or encouragement. To
    make us laugh or at least chuckle. To reminisce about family or friends.
    I have tried to do all of it in this book of poetry.”

    Right in the Middle, But Left Out, by Jeffrey Trees. This is a powerful book that deals with sexual abuse, in particular incest, from a Christian perspective, and it’s one you WILL want to read. Check out the info below on this book and see for yourself.
    https://www.amazon.com/Right-Middle-But-Left-Out/dp/1640696091/
    http://www.authorjefferytrees.com/
    Author Jeffery Trees shares a heartrending story of his experiences of learning that his first wife has repressed memories of being an incest victim, of being a Pastor at a church where no one could offer help, and of going through it all with his new wife who had a physical disability.
    In his memoir, “Right in the Middle but Left Out”, he hopes that readers will find inspiration and hope from what he went through, so they can also stand up and get through with whatever issues or conflicts they are dealing with right now.
    The author’s first wife was an incest victim as a child and when she was forced through circumstances to bring back up the repressed memories, each member of the family was changed. Nine months went by before his wife was able to express what she was dealing with. Society has made incest a taboo issue and no one knew the extent of such devastation this would bring into life for the author and his family, friends, Church and other employers, as well as insurance companies.
    No one within the Church knew how to deal with issues of incest and what it does to a family and a Pastor never did anything to bring help into the situation. Even though he asked for help from the Bishop, District Superintendent and asked who was in charge of insurance, no help was ever given.
    He asked for visitation for his wife and family and never received any help of any kind so there was no resolution. This even caused a deep problem with the Church with his new wife who had a physical disability. He became a problem rather than a pastor for the United Methodist Church. But through it all, God took care of everyone through His grace. And this proves that God is the refuge everyone seeks.

    Jeffrey Checker, has written a very powerful book detailing his personal encounters with the occult and Satanic activity, entitled; “A Trial by Fire: My Walk into Hell and Back”. This is a FACTUAL book that deals with the occult, paranormal, demons, and more so, that you don’t want to miss out on! Check put the information of this book below and see the truth for yourself.
    https://www.amazon.com/Trial-Fire-walk-into-Hell-ebook/dp/B00OQBWEN0/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
    Supernatural investigator Jeffrey Checker takes you on a journey into his life. Jeffrey has been investigating the supernatural occurrences of this world for over 40 years, and brings to light the bizarre invisible world of supernatural beings that cause conflict and strife in our physical world.

    If you are being bothered by things that go bump in the night, this book might be for you.

She finds a building with busted out windows, leaky pipes, puddles of water on the floors, an infestation of rats, plumbing problems, and a nonfunctioning heating and air-conditioning system. Her principal cares about nothing except standardized test scores. The parents with whom she meets range from narrow-minded to poignant to wildly eccentric. Katy also has personal demons to battle, including her own bipolar condition and her daughter’s drug addiction. At times her plight seems so overwhelming that she considers suicide. Throughout the school year, Katy counts the days until she will be able to transfer to another school. As a result of her counseling duties, however, she meets a first-grade girl named Carly. She learns from this child, who is determined to overcome all of her considerable obstacles. Life keeps knocking Carly down, but the child keeps getting back up. Her interactions with Carly lead Katy to a new and life changing perspective.

    Given your web site/blog’s focus I think a review of these books would be a good fit. Please let me know if this interests you and I’ll have the authors send you a copy. If you have any questions, please contact me at wendy.saddler@hotmail.com, or cedeptula@sbcglobal.net

  36. Hello,
    Would you be interested in seeing my recent book, THERE’S A HOLE. It’s the story of a happy Christian family, father, mother, four daughters, who live a good life on a hill overlooking a small town. Everything is fine until the kids dig up something in the back yard – bones.
    Now the father and his good friend, the county sheriff, try to solve the mysteries of who, what, why. The father would much rather be having dinner, going on a picnic, or just attending church with his family.
    If you’re interested, I can see about getting it to you via Kindle.
    Regards and Happy Valentine’s Day

  41. BaptismSong.com Book Review Request

    Hi ​​​Miss Julia,

    My name is Bethany​ age 11​ and I wrote The Baptism Song Book with my daddy​ for tiny babies ​all around the whole wide world.

    Here it is on the website: http://www.BaptismSong.com Our friend Kayla sings it and she is a good singer.

    My daddy wrote The Baptism Song when he could not find a Baptism, Christening or Baby Dedication song when he looked for one when mommy was pregnant with me and my twin brother named Christian.

    The Baptism Song Book and video is really nice and fun. It makes people happy cry which is nice.

    I want to be an artist and art director when I get big. We had a nice young lady named Mentol from the country of Malang City in Indonesia make the illustrations from my sketches. She is very nice. Mentol used my sketches to make her illustrations in The Baptism Song Book.

    Would you please review my book and maybe write something nice about it on your nice website.

    It is the first book that I helped to write with my daddy.

    It is fun for parents, grandparents and adults to sing to children at night time and we are having a contest so that people will know how to sing our Baptism Song. Mentol will draw a painting of the winner.

    Thank you very much,

    Bethany​ Marguerite Bella Buettner

    Age 11 years old​ in grade 6 at Severna Park Middle School

    From Daddy – I tried to edit as little as possible from Bethany above.

  42. Hello! I was wondering if you’d consider reviewing my Christian Fiction Novel, Talents. Here is a plot summary:
    Parker Wilson has nothing more to worry about than his marketing job and donating bone marrow to his nephew who is fighting leukemia. Then he meets Marcus, a little boy dying of a brain tumor who spends most days alone in a hospital room. Because of this boy’s life and then death, Parker is forced to step outside his suburban comfort zone and confront the struggles, not only of one family, but of an entire community.

    Collin O’Neill has it all — the perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect car. But he is lonely. When his friend asks him to help out in a local community center holding a weekly basketball clinic, Collin reluctantly decides to give it a try. That’s when he meets a woman named Shondra, who helps him discover that the things he thought he valued most are, in fact, the least important when compared to true riches and lasting relationships.

    You can see the book on Amazon here:
    https://www.amazon.com/Talents-Lincoln-Square-Anna-Huckabee/dp/1946920169/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

    I just published my debut novel “Haunted House Flipper.” It’s a Christian supernatural story about a realtor named Ray who comes across supernatural tools that allow him to fight off demons. I’d be happy to supply a free copy to you if it sounds like something you would enjoy.

    Summary:
    SUPERNATURAL MEETS HGTV WITH A CHRISTIAN MYTHOLOGY

He decides to use them to change his career and finally become a house flipper, but on a grander scale. He plans to flip old haunted mansions that no one else will buy, rid them of their evil spirits, renovate them, and sell them for a hefty profit. Getting them to leave isn’t as easy as he’d hoped and he has some competition from Bill Baldock, who buys up haunted mansions to destroy them and build apartment complexes in their place. Discover a new world within our own with Ray as he tries to learn how to use his new tools against demons, make new friends, and outsmart new enemies.

    Thanks for your consideration and may the riches of God’s grace be abundant in your life.

  51. I would love for you to consider my two early historicals for review. Publishers have told me the history is too ancient – 432 AD – but I wrote them anyway. My first, A Secret Hope, is set in Ireland at the time that Patrick brought the gospel there. A line from Patrick’s Confession inspired the story. Patrick spoke of the “privilege of baptizing a beautiful Irish princess.” And the second story is The Fury of Dragons, and the title comes from a line in Patrick’s Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus, in which he condemns the Roman British chieftain who stole his newly baptized converts and “gave girls away like prizes.” Here are the two links to them, if you might be interested. Of course, I would gift you a copy of them. They are ebooks, but I’m looking into using CreateSpace to have have printed copies soon.

    https://www.amazon.com/Secret-Hope-Ancient-Ireland-Spirit-ebook/dp/B0071MFRZ8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1529538970&sr=8-2&keywords=renee+yancy

    They are both stand alone stories. If you had to choose just one, The Fury of Dragons is my most recent. Thank you so much for your consideration. (And I understand if the time period is too ancient for you!)

Finally, I provide descriptions of the various virtues and ethics found in Stoicism and Christianity which readers can apply in their day-to-day lives.

  59. Hi Julia:

    I’m assisting Artemis Craig in gathering reviews for her book, “Inspirational Verse for Those Who Hunger and Thirst: A Book of Poems to Feed the Soul,” and we hope you’ll consider it for review.

    Summary: Artemis Craig takes us on her firewalk from spiritual bankruptcy to redemption via compelling, heartfelt poetry and prose. Through the power of Faith, Poetry, and Love, she finds the strength to cope with Hollywood “failure”; devastating family losses; homelessness; single parenthood; attempted suicide and breakdowns. Her poems honor and reflect “the strong women of God” who wanted her to be saved, and serve as a testament to her “Fight On” determination.

    Here’s an excerpt:
    “By God’s grace, I regained my appetite for the wisdom I received from my grandmother and my mother who taught me about life and introduced me to Christianity while serving up savory dishes of fried corn, okra, green tomatoes, and collard greens smothered in Deep South Chow Chow Relish, along with bone-chewing fried chicken.”—Artemis Craig

    I will post her information below, and you may also contact me, Marlan Warren, at memoircity at gmail.

    We can send you either a pdf or the paperback, if you prefer.

    Thank you so much for the worthy service you are doing for faith-based writers and readers.

  60. Hi Julia,
    I just published a second part of my book series, The Perfection in Love, and I would like to send you copies of the first two parts to see what you think. Reply and let me know if you are available!

  61. Growing Forward When You Can’t Go Back – Review Request

    Dear Julia,

    I hope this finds you well — and not currently in need of the book I recently wrote! Growing Forward When You Can’t Go Back will be published by Bethany House in January 2019.

    When we lose someone we love — whether by divorce, disease, or death — we’re never the same. Heartbroken, we’re left to pick up the pieces. We know we have to move forward, but we just can’t find the strength. We need help and hope…but where do we start?

    I’m Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen, author of Growing Forward When You Can’t Go Back. In this book I share stories of contemporary and biblical women who transcended extraordinary pain and grief. I weave in my own experiences of growing up with a single schizophrenic mother, living in foster care, teaching in Africa for three years, and coping with infertility.

    Growing Forward When You Can’t Go Back offers a fresh, practical perspective for women walking through loss into a new season of life.

    Every chapter includes five Blossom Tips that highlight a different aspect of who we are: spirit, heart, soul, body, and mind. By the end of the book, readers have 50 spiritual, emotional, creative, physical, and intellectual ways to move forward. This holistic approach gives women a variety of tools for healing, and honors different personalities, cultures, interests and abilities.

    My “She Blossoms” blogs attract more than 20,000 unique visitors per day. I write tips-based articles to help readers walk through loss. I send a newsletter every Wednesday to 5,500 subscribers, and my “She Blossoms” Facebook Group is an active, warm, supportive community.

    Author Bio: Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen, MSW, writes in her treehouse overlooking the ocean in Vancouver, Canada. She created the “She Blossoms” books and blogs in 2008, and has earned a living as a writer since then. Her experiences with a schizophrenic mother, foster homes, family estrangement, attempted rape, infertility, and three years teaching in Africa taught her that choosing to grow forward is essential — especially when you can’t go back! Laurie’s degrees are in Psychology, Education, and Social Work.

    Would you be willing to read and possibly review Growing Forward When You Can’t Go Back? I’d be happy to send you a print or digital copy in early December.

    I look forward to hearing from you, and wish you all the best.

    Sincerely,
    Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen

  63. Dear Julia,

    I am interested in knowing if you would review my recently published book, MARY KNEW-A Biography of Mary from Ancient Scriptures.
    It is written in the historical narrative format. Novelette-size, the book is a quick read. I used the eye witness testimony of James, the youngest son of Joseph. He lived at the family home and traveled to Bethlehem with Mary and Joseph. His scriptures, used in the early Christian churches for hundreds of years, provided witness to awe inspiring events in the life of Mary. He became a chief Apostle and the first Christian Bishop of Jerusalem.
    The book was written in answer to the popular song, “Mary, Did You Know?” That song gave people the impression Mary was an average teenager. She was not. She was named, consecrated and ordained to be the mother of Jesus, Immanuel, before her conception. Filled with angels, miracles, fulfillment of prophecies, readers will learn the angels were correct when they said Mary would be the most important woman to ever be born on Earth.
    I included a glossary, references and prophecies about Jesus.
    If you are interested in reviewing the book, please let me know where I may send a copy.

    Thank you for your kind consideration.

    Respectfully,
    Irene Baron
