Let’s Chat! Author Caryl McAdoo

Welcome, everyone!

blessings_Caryl McAdooThanksgiving books. What a welcome sight.

I‘m delighted to hand the reins to prodigiously productive author Caryl McAdoo for the coming week. She’s chatting a bit about the Thanksgiving Books and Blessings Collection

One of you who comments can expect a free ebook copy of this collection, so join in below, ya’ll.


Thank you so much for inviting me to visit this morning, Linda. I appreciate you! I’m very excited to share the Thanksgiving Books & Blessings Collection. Eight authors with ten or more titles (up to seventy-five) who consistently earn 5-Star reviews joined together to write a story with the Thanksgiving Dinner being a big part of their stories.

The Authors and Their Contributions

Its authors with their titles

George McVey wrote NUGGET NATE: MOYA’S THANKSGIVING PROPOSAL (30K wrd, 120 pg) but has had trouble getting his book published at Amazon, I’m unsure as to the reason.

A Note About the Collection

I added the size of each because as you see they vary a lot, so individual titles also vary in price. They are all set between 1840 and 1896, mostly in the western half of the United States, and offer readers hours of entertaining reads.

All the authors above are so thankful that God called us to write and gives us excellent stories. We’re thankful for our readers who encourage us with their reviews and support up by sharing our titles with friends and family.

The Cover Designer

There’s been a lot of work gone into bringing this collection to fruition. We started back in February, planning and organizing, lining up our fabulous Evelyne LaBelle of Carpe Librum Book Design to create our beautiful covers.

We launched the titles beginning September 6th and have just released the actual collection as one file for one great price at $9.99! What a bargain, right?

A Final Word From Caryl

From all of us to all of you, we pray that your 2018 Thanksgiving Day will be filled with fun and laughter, good food and all the smells of the season, and the peace of God that passes understanding. We pray for the safe travels as your family gathers. We pray love will reign and that all the blessings of Almighty God will be yours!

AND, Linda!

I’m already getting the authors together for the 2019 Second Annual Thanksgiving Books & Blessings Collection! So, God willing and the creek don’t rise, there will be a wonderful collection like this every year!

Thank you so much again for having me and letting me gush a bit about the Thanksgiving Books & Blessings Collection. Be blessed and Happy Thanksgiving, my sister! Thanksgiving Books

Dear Lord, we thank You for the innumerable ways in which You bless us every single day. We extend our hands for what You have to give us. But by Your grace, we’ll keep them open for Your will to be done. On the one day the United States sets aside for giving thanks, we join hands with others around the world saying,
“Thank You, Lord of Glory, Blesser of the Nations!”
~ Keep us ever thankful for Jesus’ sake

A Divine Idea Blesses All = God’s Economy

How God works astounds me! Far in advance He knows what’s coming and prepares His children, gets everything in motion so that when the time arrives . . . I LOVE His economy!

After participating in my first-ever multi-author series, Lockets and Lace with my SILENT HARMONY (https://www.amazon.com/Silent-Harmony-Lockets-Lace-Book-ebook/dp/B078RT4W63) that debuted in January, my Father suggested I create a new multi-author series. Coming up in November—this is all happening in 2018—would be my 5th Annual “Thanksgiving Books & Blessings” Facebook Party.

Hmm, what if those participating authors wrote a special Thanksgiving story?

Thanksgiving Books & Blessings

In February, I invited authors to participate not just in the November Party, but to write a Thanksgiving story! The rest is history—nineteenth century history to be exact—and romancing pioneers settling the wild west. Doesn’t that just sound like too much fun?

Almighty God arranged everything for me—the authors for starters! I have (in alphabetical order) Heather Blanton, P. Creeden, Lena Nelson Dooley, Kristin Holt, George McVey, Kit Morgan, Lynette Sowell, and Suzette Williams joining me this year for the First Annual Thanksgiving Books & Blessings Collection!

Our launches begin Thursday, September 6th with my GONE TO TEXAS, book one in the collection and also book one in my personal new Cross Timbers Romance Family Saga. I suspect it will be nine to twelve novels before that’s finished. For my first saga, the Texas Romance series, I wrote a prelude plus nine stories, but loved those people so much, added SEVEN more ‘Companion’ novels! It’s time to start fresh.

After mine launches, one historical romance set in the 1800s will release each day until Friday, September 14th, from eight more best-selling, award-winning authors! The Lord gave me the idea. He called the authors. I count the Thanksgiving Books & Blessings Collection His work; I’m only His hands and organizer-daughter.


I’m so excited to see what He will do with it, to watch His plans unfold!

With His help, I’ve worked since February on this project to bring Him glory. It’s been such a pleasure getting to know these awesome folks participating and learning so much from them. A large amount of organizing went in to recording all kinds of information. Then in July, revealing our lovely covers at our Facebook Extravaganza party, and now we’ve come to our Launches!

Gone to Texas

Thursday, September 6, GONE TO TEXAS becomes a book! See how blessed I am? I don’t deserve it, but I am blessed and highly favored every day! It’s wild! It’s so amazing! Pre-orders are available now.

So please accept my invitation to join our Thanksgiving Books & Blessings Group:

Then come to the Launch Day Celebration by the same name on September 6! It starts at 10 a.m. and each author will have an hour to debut their title, ending at 7 p.m., but the party will stay open with authors dropping back by for all to have an opportunity to participate. Prizes will be awarded the following morning by 10 a.m. 

I am confident God will bless our readers with hours of wonderful entertainment. I believe the authors have been blessed already through the process but will be even more so as the titles are released into the world! The Lord blessed our graphic designer Evelyne LaBelle at Carpe Librum Book Designer with ten print and ebook and audio covers, including the Collection Cover.

I pray that YOU get blessed, Linda Davis, for inviting me to come and share about our new collection. Thank you so much! I’d enjoy blessing one of your readers with a GIVEAWAY of an eBook copy of GONE TO TEXAS! See? From start to finish, everyone gets blessed—and that’s God’s economy!

**To enter, all you have to do is comment! I’d love to hear what your favorite family tradition is for Thanksgiving Day!**

Before I leave, please let me speak on your Thanksgiving Day Gathering this year. May loved ones surround you, the good food fill you, and God’s precious Holy Spirit be in attendance, bringing His peace, joy, and abundant blessings to all!

    Wow! Awesome!
    My first attraction was your hair ma. It’s beautiful, spotless and angelic. Now I know why the scripture said the glory of the old is their grey hair. Though yours has a glorious white appearance.
    You have really blessed lives with your books. God bless and keep you Ma.

  2. Jane Quail

    What a wonderful way to meet other authors on Linda’s “Let’s Chat”. The current posting by Caryl McAdoo is so exciting and full of opportunity, that others of us authors out there can be excited about her opportunities and the evidence of God’s Hand in her life. Many blessings and more evidence of our Lord’s moving His gospel message through Christian authors and the inspiration that only He can give each of us.

    1. Jane Quail

      Addendum: My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the Turkey (an honorable offering) being prepared by Grandma (me), and the mmm’s and ahhh’s of family surrounding the table, and the sweet prayer of gratitude for blessing beyond our imagination!
      God bless all who respond, and you, Caryl, as well as the other authors. May He bless you richly now in the future!

    2. Welcome, Jane! And thanks for your sweet addition to the conversation. Bless you!

  3. Rose
