Beatitudes & Woes: A One-of-a-Kind Anthology — post by Mary C. Findley

From the Amazon book description — “Explore the Beatitudes and Woes of the Bible through the stories of thirteen Christian authors in this uniquely powerful anthology. These science fiction and fantasy stories will bring you to the point of tears, make you laugh, surprise you, amaze you, and inspire you. ”

Contributions in this amazing work are by Travis Perry, C.W. Briar, Parker J Cole, JL Ender, Lelia Rose Foreman, Gen Gavel, Rachel Kimberly Hastings, Hillari DeSchane, Rebekah Loper, Andra Marquardt, RJ Conte, AT Hamlet, Steve Rzasa, Randy Streu.

I was privileged to design the cover for this anthology from Bear Publications, and I am excited by the reception it’s gotten. Already there are multiple five star reviews. The book got noticed at a recent conference by none other than Steve Laube and the cover is up for an award.

One thing a book needs to get even more notice is more reviews! That’s why the publisher is giving away PDF copies to willing readers. There are no strings attached. But whether you buy a copy or accept a PDF, we hope you’ll consider leaving an honest review. To request a PDF copy, please email me at mjmcfindley@gmail.com. It’s yours for the asking.

Gasp! A Book Review! Hannah’s Civil Pirate by Joanna Emerson — Post by Mary C. Findley

It’s been a long time since I wrote a book review. I think I have a backlog. Since Amazon banned me from reviewing, I guess I’ve been sulking in a corner, thinking writing reviews anywhere else wouldn’t matter.

But you need to read this book. It’s wonderful. My review is posted on Goodreads, but, since Amazon owns that, too, I don’t know if it’ll stand. So I’ll also put it here.

” Get it! Read it! This is a triumphant account of historical characters. I feel certain it is fiction only where necessary and still based on truth. Such a sweet romance amid suffering and hoping for freedom. Loved the sudden twist at the ending when I thought the story was over!”

This Is One Crazy Free Book Offer

Some of our readers have taken advantage of the free first book in my The Great Thirst serial archaeological mystery. It has a nice collection of reviews. However, I am working on a promotion for The Great Thirst Boxed Set, the complete seven-part series, and it has not been so blessed with reviews. In hopes of making it more likely to be approved by promo sites, I would like to make a crazy offer. Anyone who would like a free copy of this ebook set, please just post a comment with your email and I will get you a copy in mobi or ePub. Please help me get my books in front of more readers, and I will be so grateful! Here’s the Amazon link so you can check it out! http://myBook.to/Great_Thirst_Boxed_Set

In case you are shy about posting your email, here’s mine. Mjmcfindley@gmail.com. Please let me know if you prefer ePub or mobi (Kindle) format.

Thank you so much!
