100 Review Celebration!

Two weeks ago my debut novel, Chain of Mercy, eclipsed the 100 Review mark on Amazon! Not too bad for a marking-averse, small-pub-turned-indie author. I promised a celebration and a giveaway when that happened, so here it is:

100+ Review Celebration

I’m giving away a 7″ Display Kindle Fire loaded with books! All my books including the soon-to-be-released Risking Love, plus books by nine authors who have mentored me, who’ve been critique partners, prayer partners, and encouragers on this writing journey.

Kindle Books included in giveaway:

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be spotlighting up to two of those authors every day for the next week.  You may enter once a day by answering the question of the day in the comments. The contest ends August 16 at 12:00 am CST. Enter using the Rafflecopter form below.

  1. Wow! That is a really hard question. It just depends on which genre I guess. I love Julie Klassen, Julie Lessman, Terri Blackstock and many others I enjoy. My newest author that I have enjoyed is Jenn Faulk. But I love to read and if the book is awesome and has a good romance in it, then that author is my favorite at the time. 🙂

  2. my favorite all time author…sooooo hard…probably would say Grace Livingston Hill…she’s who I started out reading sooooooo long ago 🙂 Fun fact: we found a bulletin from the church my great grandfather was pastor at and they had invited Grace Livingston Hill to be the speaker at their Mother Daughter Banquet! Thought it was pretty neat 🙂

  3. Jane Austen is my favorite author of all time. As far as modern authors, especially Christian fiction, Erin Healy is one of my favorites.

    Congratulations on the success of your book!

    1. I love that so many readers today still enjoy the oldies like Jane Austen! My favorite is probably Charlotte Bronte.

      Erin Healy is wonderful, isn’t she? Such an imagination!

      Thanks for stopping in, Dianna!

  4. Brenda, that’s a loaded question when you want to know my all time favorite author.
    I have read multiple thousands of books over the years and I have favorite authors in multiple genres and I can’t think of one that is my favorite of all.
    I love your books and I am honored to be part of your team to help you spread the word about your books.
    Thanks for the giveaway and i will spread the word.

    1. It is sooo difficult to choose a favorite, isn’t it? Maybe I should have narrowed it by genre or age, but even then it would be hard!

      Thank you, Linda, for all you’ve done to help spread the word about my books! I’m very, very grateful!

  5. It’s so hard to pick just one favorite! I think that Francine Rivers would probably nudge ahead of any others by a hair, though.

    1. Hi Kristine – welcome to my blog!

      LOVE Francine Rivers! My favorite(s) have to be the Mark of the Lion series. Her characterization in those novels is some of the best I’ve ever read. Do you have a favorite book of hers?

  6. Not sure I could name just one! Lately I have really been enjoying Laura Frantz and Lori Benton. Also I am a big fan of Charles Martin like you are!

    Fun tidbit, we recently bought a new house and had to wait almost two weeks before cable and internet service were installed… my brother was in town for the weekend and stayed with us instead of my parents. With no TV to watch in the evening I gave him Water from My Heart by Charles Martin to read… he said he stayed up until about 1am reading. He took the book home with him, I need to check back and see if he finished it!

    1. Loved Water from My Heart! Probably my favorite of Martin’s since his early books. That one’s definitely worth a re-read.

      Laura Frantz and Lori Benton are both fabulously gifted authors! Oh to write like them!

  7. My all time favorite author is Lauraine Snelling. She got me started on reading Christian fiction books. I love all her historical ones. Thanks for the giveaway and good luck everyone. Brenda, congratulations on your debut book.

  8. I still really love Grace Livingston Hill books.
    Currently – it is so hard to choose – there are so many.

  9. Oh my, it would be too hard to pick just one. My favorites are Kelly Irvin, Katie Ganshert and Melanie Dobson. Congrats on the 100 reviews Brenda!

  10. Way too many fantastic authors to only pick one 😉 I’m excited to delve into your books. My recently read authors are Amy Lillard, Janette Oke and Louisa May Alcott.
