This week I'm celebrating:
1) Like my beaver friend above, I'm trying to eat more veggies on my diet. They aren't very appetizing. :P But then I thought -- "Wait! Guacamole and salsa are made of vegetables, and they're yummy!" So I made some ... and then I ate them with tortilla chips. But don't worry, I ate the corn kind not the flour ones. After all, corn is a vegetable... ;)
2) Library Journal's starred review of Bloodwalker was published last Saturday! My publisher sent me a jpg of the magazine page, and I transcribed it. You can read it HERE.
3) I'm thrilled to announce that my publisher, Freedom Fox Press/Dancing Lemur Press L.L.C., has released a new book -- Cling to God by Lynda R. Young. Congrats to Lynda!!!
Cling to God: A Daily Devotional
by Lynda R Young
Cling to God in the chaos of life…
Cling to God is a book of devotionals for every day of the year. The aim is to encourage Christians in their faith, to help them think about their beliefs and learn more about God. The devotions are short and inspirational so that people with busy lifestyles will still be able to spend time with the Lord each day. It will appeal to a wide Christian audience, to those new in their faith as well as those matured beyond milk and honey.
Author Bio: Lynda R. Young, a Christian first, writes devotionals, articles, and speculative short stories. In her spare time she is also an editor, game developer, artist, and dabbles in photography and all things creative. She lives in Australia with her sweetheart of a husband. You can find her here:
