Congratulations to Merry for winning Susan Sleeman’s High Stakes Inheritance and to Sheila for winning Vickie McDonough’s Second Chance Brides.

This week I’m hosting Janelle Mowery with Love Finds You in Silver City, Idaho and Kathi Macias with Red Ink. If you want to enter the drawings, please leave a comment on one of the post during the week with your email address. I will not enter you without an email address (my way to contact you if you win). If you don’t want to leave an email address, another way you can enter is to email me at The drawings end Sunday (October 10th) evening.

Bio for Janelle Mowery:

She is the award-winning author of two novels, with five more set to release in 2011. She and her husband of twenty-one years have two sons and make their home in Texas.

Blurb for Love Finds You in Silver City, Idaho:

It’s 1869, and chaos rules Silver City. As Rebekah Weaver recovers from an accident that has left her badly burned, she worries that her father’s handsome new assistant won’t see past her scarred exterior. Deputy Marshal Nathaniel Kirkland is working undercover to investigate a series of explosions in the mines and businesses of Silver City. When ominous notes begin appearing on townspeople’s doors, Nate needs Rebekah’s help to uncover the identity of the perpetrator. As they work together, Nate begins to speculate that Rebekah’s “accident” was really a case of intentional sabotage – and that she might still be in danger.

Bio of Kathi Macias:

Award-winning author Kathi Macias has written more than 20 books, including the award-winning devotional A Moment a Day, and the popular “Matthews” mystery novels. One of her recent novels, Emma Jean Reborn, is being put into script form by playwright Barry Scott. Kathi has won many awards, including the Angel Award from Excellence in Media, fiction awards from the San Diego Christian Writers Guild, and the grand prize in an international writing contest. With women’s ministry as her primary interest, Kathi is a popular speaker for women’s retreats, conferences, and churches. A mother and grandmother, Kathi and her husband, Al, call California home.

Blurb for Red Ink:

A young Chinese woman, Zhen-Li—raised to observe the party line, including its one-child-per-family doctrine—falls in love with and marries a Christian, and adopts his faith. Though the couple downplays their Christianity in an effort to survive, Zhen-Li’s family is appalled, and she and her husband are ostracized. When she becomes pregnant for the second time and refuses to have an abortion, the persecution begins in earnest. Zhen-Li’s parents, under pressure from the government, pay to have Zhen-Li kidnapped and the baby aborted.

It is then Zhen-Li decides she must live up to her name—”Truth”—and take a firm stand for her faith, regardless of the consequences, and so she begins to regularly teach children about Zhu Yesu (“Lord Jesus”) and to distribute Christian literature every chance she gets.

Based loosely on the life of Christian magazine editor Li Ying, currently serving a ten-year prison sentence in China, the story of Yang Zhen-Li tells the desperate tale of her incarceration and separation from her family, as she continues to minister to other prisoners, and even to her guards.

  13. Both of these sound awesome!! I'm still yet to read any of the "Love Finds You in…" books. It's frustrating that nowhere here carries them! LOL!

    Add me for either please, Margaret!! : )

  14. I would like being entered into this drawing. So many different stories, ideas, authors never seem to run dry. Since I live close to Idaho, or next to it, would like to win that, or any book is okay, have not read one yet that didn't keep me interested for sure. Juanita W

  20. Having read and endorsed Janelle's touching, beautiful story, I can say the winner of her book won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.

    I'd love a chance to win Kathi's book.

    Thanks! magruver1(at)aol(dot)com

  21. I am getting Red Ink to review, so I would LOVE to be entered for the Love Finds You in Silver City. Thank you for the chance!


  22. Wow! Both books sound super. I really love Kathi Macias' writing. I've read two of her four book Extreme Devotion series. "Red Ink" is the most recent with one more to come. I'd love to have this book, but I'd be thrilled to receive the Western love story/thriller, "Love Finds You…" as well.

  23. Both books sound fantastic and while I'd love to have both, I know I need to choose. It's tough, but since I'm a Love Finds You author myself, I'm collecting them and would love to add this one to my ever growing collection.

    Thank you for this opportunity!

  24. I would be excited to win either book being offered. Guess what? Sunday, Oct 10 is my birthday and it would be lovely to win one of these books to celebrate my day. I haven't read any of the "Love Finds You in…" yet and I'd love to win it. Red Ink is also an important book to read. I'm surely not getting any younger and at this moment I'm as young as I'll ever be! But, I'm excited at whatever plans God has for me still. Perhaps my future will hold winning and reading one of these books on my birthday. Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win a book. I hope I do!!
