December 2nd:

I can’t believe it’s December. I feel like two months have disappeared in one blink. I’ve been doing lots of interviews for Just Show Up. I’m thankful and blessed to be able to share the story of this book and how it came about with many across the country. I’ve “met” lots of amazing people over phone interviews and so many of them have encouraged me. Thank you to those who have read the book and left a review and been such a support. It means the world to me (and Kara.) Right now The Hardest Peace is on sale for 1.99 for a short time. This is Kara’s first book and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Hope your December is filled with peace. ~ Jill

I just left a review for my friend Jill’s soon to be released book, Unexpected Family. Love Inspired readers, you’ll love this one!

Unexpected FamilyUnexpected Family by Jill Kemerer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a sweet, heartwarming romance that will take you into the lives of two characters who desperately need a second chance. You’ll root for them as they realize who they are in Christ and what they both want to fight for. Macy is the little girl in the book, and she adds another sweet element. Kemerer’s descriptions are extremely well done, and the characters are well-developed and realistic. If you’re looking for the following things, this one is for you: sweet, clean romance. Happily ever after. Faith-filled fiction. Second chance at a first romance. Small-town setting. Sigh-worthy ending. Enjoy!

July 3: Ahh!! So excited to have this new site up and running. Huge thanks to Jones House Creative. I love it! As for writing, I’ve taken a bit of time off after handing in my last edits. I always find I need some space for my mind to rest. Since it’s summer, I’m hanging with my kids as much as possible. I can already feel the desire to write, so I think it won’t be long before I start tapping the keys again. Hope everyone is having a great summer!
