Click on over to F.A.I.T.H. on Monday. We are talking about finding the true core of your writing. What your story is about at heart. If you're a reader, you can post about what type of story you LOVE to read.
I'd like to introduce to you Amy Wallace, Rita Award Nominee for Ransomed Dreams.
Today we are talking about her second book, Healing Promises which will be available April 15th. I'll be drawing for a free copy tomorrow morning. So leave a comment today and check back to see if you are the lucky one to receive this great book.
