Sweet Grove is a small town with a Texas-sized heart, but the spirit of the community goes well beyond the town limits. The authors in the First Street Church Kindle Worlds community have shown you how they've changed their characters' lives for the better.
Now they want to share about real organizations that are dear to their hearts, because they change real people's lives for the better.
Okay, so I admit it. I cringe and whine outwardly when the Christmas decorations start to show up in the department stores, but inwardly, my heart gives a little cheer.
Yes! It says, We can start digging out the tree soon. In just six more weeks. Tops. Of course, Mr. Castle prefers to wait until after Thanksgiving.
But maybe if we just bring out the decorations and wait on the tree. A few snow-globes mixed in with the fall foliage, right? We can get away with at least that.... right? I try to stay strong and tell my excited little heart no, we need to wait.
But still, that desire remains, and an eagerness for Christmas carols and glittering lights grows with each falling leaf and cold morning. Can I get an AMEN here?
I know some folks think rushing the season is silly. But is it really rushing it, or extending it? Or, spreading it out?
Ha! I feel like I'm grasping for straws here. LOL!

Not too long ago, my bookshelves were like sacred ground. Wherever we moved, my boxes (heavy) of books (which Mr. Castle often threaten to throw in the nearest dumpster) would go with us. Didn't matter if I'd read the books before. If I loved them, they stayed with me.
Some still do.
Then the e-readers became popular. At the time, I was working at a bookstore and purchased my first reader, a nook, for a really great price. And I was hooked.
For those who are on my Royal Readers Team, I had sent out the beta version of Sun Kisses, then had to turn around and do a "re-call". My editor felt the book needed more tweaking, so I'd asked those who'd already downloaded the original to either read with the understanding that a lot would change, or to wait for the updated version.
Here's What Happened....
This week, I have some great offers for you. Do you love finding new authors? Getting free books? I'm excited to introduce you to two on-going promotions that are also offering prizes for those who enter.
