A Soldier's Reunion by Cheryl Wyatt

After 10 years of separation, Mandy and Nolan are brought back together in a tragic situation. They both must kick in and do their job as they are called upon when the bridge over the Refuge River collapsed. Mandy is a doctor-in- training and driving across the bridge when the collapse happens she must help with the rescue efforts. Nolan is part of a pararescue jumping squad that is called to the scene. Childhood sweethearts parted ways to follow their desires, but were their desires what the Lord wanted? Mandy is afraid to allow Nolan back into her life for fear he will walk out as he did 10 years prior. Besides, growing up he hadn't shared her faith and her parents didn't approve of him. She has a dream to follow, allowing Nolan back in may hamper that dream. Would parting ways be worth the deep, dark void in her life again? Could they fall in love again? Could their love survive a 2nd time around? or would careers cause them to part again? I have so enjoyed Cheryl's Wings of Refuge series. I know you will fall in love with each character as they fall in love.

Mom NEEDS Chocolate by Debora M. Coty

What's a run-down, ragged mom to do? your spirit yearns to soar, but your feet-and faith-are stuck in the diaper-by-diaper mud of everyday responsibilities. How can you de-much when you're chronically exhausted? Humorist Debora Coty has the answer in her April release, MOM NEEDS CHOCOLATE.

In mom-to-mom, smile-provoking style, Coty paints her offbeat picture of reality with a tangy twist while offering outrageous coping tips, off-the-wall insights, sisterly hugs, and warm encouragement. With witty frankness and wild abandon, she tackles the extremes of marriage, horror of embarrassing children, defeat (and re-defeat) of depression, aging grossfully (er, gracefully), and a veritable grocery-list of other mud-between-your-toes issues.

Debora Coty's latest, Mom NEEDS Chocolate, just released from Regal Books and is endorsed by legendary funny ladies Martha Bolton and Patsy Clairmont.
"Fatigued? Frenzied? Fragile? Sidle up to Debora's chocolate-covered chapters on life, love and looney liaisons and laught your way back into a place of peace" ~Patsy Claimont, Women of Faith speaker, author of Catching Fireflies

"Motherhood has it rewards, and Debora Coty is one of them" ~
Martha Bolton, renowned humorist and author of more than 50 books


"Her humor and down-to-earth observations make the book not only a great read but also a practical encouragement for woment everywhere." ~Holly Wagner, GodChicks and WarriorChicks


Debora M. Coty is a woman on a mission. Coty's mission is simple: help women hear God's still, small voice about blathering kids, howling pets, and snarling traffic. Since answering God’s call to write six years ago, Debora has published over 80 articles in international magazines, newspapers, and anthologies, and signed 11 book contracts!

Solving cryptograms is the name of the game. The Crypto-Caper even allow their readers to figure out six different cryptograms to help them solve the mystery along the way. What is a cryptogram?

The Firstborn by Conlan Brown


This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

The Firstborn

Realms (May 5, 2009)

by

Conlan Brown



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Born in 1984, Conlan Brown was functionally illiterate until the fifth grade, when he learned how to read and write, as well as a love of story, from his grandmother. Conlan went on to start college at the age of sixteen, and now holds a Master's degree in Communication, which taught him the academic principles needed to write Firstborn.

Conlan lives on Colorado's Front Range where he is working on his next book. He enjoys video editing, film scores, and developing high octane, thought provoking fiction that turns pages and excites the senses.


ABOUT THE BOOK

Three supernatural gifts. Two thousand years of division. One moment of truth.

Hannah's head hung, long brown hair in her eyes. Her face felt pasty with cold and fatigue and pain. Arms behind her back, she sat in a chair, wrists and ankles tied to the wooden frame, chair legs bolted to the floor. A cold car. A gun. Horror. Pain. Grief. Screaming. A windshield blistering with holes. Darkness.

It all came over her like a flood. A pouring out of pictures in her mind. But then there was one more thing. Not an image, but a feeling--that half a continent away someone else had felt it all happening too.

The Firstborn, those gifted with Foresight, Hindsight, and Insight at the time of Christ's death are divided between themselves. And when an Islamic holy man is murdered outside of his mosque it becomes apparent that one of the Firstborn was to blame. Now, with the threat of a terrorist attack on an unspeakable target the Firstborn are spiraling out of control. Leaders are dying, members are being kidnapped, and unity is being forced. Three heroes, differently gifted and divided must work together to thwart those who would go too far.

Their breakneck race against time plunges them into a world of danger and through a gauntlet across the United States. From the Riverwalk of San Antonio, where Devin Bathurst, John Temple, and Hannah Rice must protect one another from assassination, to the gritty streets of Washington DC, a paramilitary compound in Pennsylvania, and ultimately back to our nation's capital, the Firstborn must unite to prevent an impending atrocity from becoming reality.
