Give Someone ‘A Quiver Full Of Arrows’ For Christmas

QUIVER FULL COVER - GOLDChristmas is a time for families. And what better gift to give than the story of one unusual, but heart-warming family that fills the pages of A Quiver Full of Arrows — by me, of course.

Take newspaper publisher Lawson Wainright, who has a gut feeling that two sleeping bags and a can full of peanuts under his front porch just might be connected with four run-away children who have been in the news.  If he’s correct, his life as a quiet, orderly, 40-year-old bachelor just might be on the verge of being turned upside down.

Now add those four children, and a handful of other characters who will make the reader’s heart melt. Throw in a miracle or two from the hand of a loving God. And there you have a story that’s just made for Christmas giving.

It’s available in e-book on Amazon’s Kindle Store, and the price is right for giving: only $2.99.

And don’t forget, Amazon offers a free Kindle app for any device. Downloadable right on the page where you order A Quiver Full of Arrows.

Give a copy to someone you love this Christmas.

Inspirational Novel Series Has Something for Everyone

PIC FOR SM.MT. SERIES COVER - FBThe Smoky Mountain Series of inspirational novels has something for everyone. Each book follows the story of its main character as he learns to trust God and use His Word to win over the enormous challenges and struggles of life.

Each book also offers an element of romance because, let’s be real: romance is a very, very big part of life. Successful romance brings joy and completion. Unfulfilled romance causes confusion and despair. The longing for romance stirs up eagerness and hope. Unexpected romance brings surprise and excitement. Loss of romance produces pain and heartbreak. Whatever the affect of romance in our lives, it definitely plays a part at some point.

And the third element in each of these novels is family. As readers of the series, you will meet a whole community of family and friends who share their lives as they learn to overcome life’s problems with the power of God’s Word and who experience romance the way God intended it to be. This ever-increasing extended family of delightful, true-to-life characters will encourage your faith and your own commitment to living every part of life by God’s Word.

In Book # 1 – Set Free To Love – meet private detective Maddison Holt, who is so bound by grief, guilt, and self-incrimination that he feels unfit to love or to enjoy the gift of a woman’s love when the Lord offers it to him. His only hope is in learning to trust God’s Word anew and dig out of it the truths that will set him free. But freedom comes with its own challenges, and he must learn even more about using God’s Word to maintain his victory.

In Book # 2 – Cameron’s Rib – meet pastor Cameron McDaniels, who believes he has found the one woman who is the answer to his prayer for a helpmate. But she is still mourning the death of her former fiance and is afraid to love again. Cameron’s efforts to relieve her fears with his own love are not enough, and he must learn to fight the battle for her deliverance with God’s Word. Travel with this captivating couple from Illinois to Tennessee to Honduras and back as they find their answers and their victory.

Book # 3 – Repaired By Love – introduces Lionel Butler, an auto-mechanic and business owner, who has caused many a girl’s heart to flutter, but he never even notices because he’s convinced he’s destined to be a bad husband and father. His future looks bleak and hopeless. And because he’s convinced he can never believe in God, he feels he has nowhere to turn for help — until one woman of God touches his heart enough to soften it and open it to Jesus Christ.

Book # 4 – Jonah’s Song – introduces Cameron’s brother, Professor Jonah McDaniels — violinist, composer, conductor — who discovers love late in life and struggles with giving a place to his feelings. But after learning to set his heart free, he is suddenly faced with new, unexpected challenges in his life that threaten his new-found freedom and his long-awaited chance for happiness.

Book # 5 – This Fire In My Heart – is still in progress. It follows the story of Maddison Holt’s life-long friend, Cherokee minister Thomas Blaze of God Ross, as he faces his own challenges and discovers his own answers in the Holy Book as well. We’ll save any details of Book # 5 for later.

Each main character in the series faces situations that are impossible in the natural, but God has a plan. God always has a plan. And if we will just believe Him and throw our whole being into cooperating with Him, He will lead us to victory. So come read the stories of Maddison, Cameron, Lionel, Jonah, and Blaze, and let God’s great plan for restoring their lives inspire and encourage your own heart and life as well.

The Smoky Mountain Series is now coming to the Kindle Store on Amazon.com. Book # 1 is available at this link, and Book # 2 will be online in one week, with Books 3 and 4 following close behind. So power up that Kindle, Nook, laptop, iPad, or iPhone. Download your copy of the first book today. Then sit back, prop up your feet, take a sip of fresh-brewed coffee, and let the happy experience begin.

(Books 1-4 are also available in print at some bookstores and from the publisher’s website. They will be available in print on Amazon as well in the near future.)
