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!
