What practical steps can believers take to be less self-focused and more God-focused?   Life is not about me, but all about Him. This phrase changed my life. Prayer is the key to keeping your eyes on Jesus. The more we pray, the more God moves us to do His will and not our will!

You say it’s important for believers to discover how to pray everyday prayers.  What does this mean? I heard a speaker say she would never bother God to help her find her lost keys or a good parking spot—how do you feel about that statement? 
I pray about everything! Jesus tells us in Luke 16:10, “He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much.” We categorize prayers, God recognizes prayers. God wants us to bring everything to Him. Nothing is too small or too big for God! Prayer builds our faith and trust in Jesus!

What are some of the blessings of having an intimate life with Jesus, and how does one develop that intimacy?
Humbleness abounds as I realize there is nothing I can do to earn an intimate relationship with Jesus. I can only obtain it through His grace and mercy, which He gives so freely. Jesus is my all in all.

COTT Winner!

Congratulations to Delia Latham for taking the crown in last week's Staff Clash. Two anonymous COTT staffers went into the ring and readers had another hard choice to make. Some said:
  • "This was a cruel choice!! LOL! They were both excellent."
  •  (About Delia's excerpt): "Beautiful words expressing emotion and making the reader want more."
  •  "Intense emotions on both excerpts! Great job!"
  •  "Terrific excerpts!"
  • (About Katie's excerpt): "I need to know Wulf better! I have a feeling he's dreamy."
  • "Awesome clash with two well-written, emotion-packed scenes! Great job, authors!"
Of course, nobody knew at the time that those authors were Delia Latham and Katie McCurdy.
Both are recent additions to the staff. Delia has come on board as a Blog Alliance Correspondent, and Katie is the official Talent Scout. (Looks like COTT scouted some talent when they found these two gems.)

This fun excursion was a great interjection into the usual good times shared at Clash of the Titles. This week sees another fierce challenge with nameless authors nominated by COTT staff. Be sure to head over there and vote now!

And in just 2 weeks, the party begins! Mark your calendars for October 10th and be ready to play for extra prizes all month long as COTT celebrates it's first anniversary. Your vote will determine which of the year's winning authors will receive the ultimate honor: the Laurel Award.

Saturday Spotlight - Tempered Series!

Good Morning Friends,

The blog was a bit quiet this week, but my life has been anything but! I'm home in LA for a visit and taking care of business part of which is preparing for a month-long blog tour with The Visionary - speaking of which, I received the FINAL proof of the full cover! I'll share it with you once approved & corrected (if necessary) and More details on that tour to come!
Anyway, since there are no new releases from Pelican Book Group (aka: White Rose Publishing & HarborLight Books) so I thought I'd spotlight my 4-part Tempered series for all of my new friends.

Set in the beautiful hill country of Texas in Bandera, the "Cowboy Capital of the World," Tempered Hearts begins the series. This book was initially published in December of 2000 by Writers Exchange Epublishing.

Rancher Craig Harris and veterinarian Tamera Collins clash from the moment they meet.  Innocence is pitted against arrogance as tempers rise and passions ignite to form a love as pure as the finest gold, fresh from the crucible and as strong as steel.  Thrown together amid tragedy and unsated passion, Tamera and Craig share a strong attraction that neither accepts as the first stages of love.  Torn between desire and dislike, they must make peace with their pasts and God in order to open up to the love blossoming between them.  It is a love that nothing can destroy when they come to understand that only when hearts are tempered, minds are opened and wills are softened can man discern the will of God for his life.

June 2001 saw the release of book 2 - Tempered Dreams.
Dr. Scott Hensley (introduced in Tempered Hearts) has built a wall around his heart since the death of his wife and parents.  Katrina Simmons is recovering from scars inflicted on her as a battered wife.  Can dreams be renewed and faith strengthened?  Can they find joy and peace in God’s love and in love for one another?  
Since that time, mistakes were made and dreams shattered, but we perservered through the fire to find joy and now the entire Tempered Series is available on Kindle & Nook for only $1.99 each!
Amber Harris is a good girl on the brink of womanhood. Stanley Morrison is a young man at the start of his life. For each other, they have always felt the fireworks that two people in love should feel. But the questions about his past, his pride, and Amber's father might be the end of what could be a strong relationship. As the two try to protect their budding romance, some unlikely but powerful forces conspire to keep them apart. Will they survive the wishes of everyone around them with their relationship intact?

All around rodeo cowboy and heir to the Rockin’ H Ranch, Ace Harris is determined not to fall in love.  He’s only loved one woman in his life, his mother, and no one can even come close to filling her boots. Lexie Morgan thinks rodeo cowboys have rocks for brains and a death wish for a soul.  A broken childhood and the death of her father and best friend leave her doubting and questioning God (despite her years of religious upbringing) and afraid of love. Can two young people who clash from the onset learn to trust in the healing power of God and find love and happiness amidst tragedy and grief? 

Well friends, hope you enjoyed this spotlight. I'll spotlight my other titles as time and space allow.
IMW.....Take care, God Bless and Remember.....God brings you full circle~Bandera, TX touched my heart as a child & changed my life as an adult.

COTT Anniversary Party!

Tourney Banner 2

Happy Anniversary, Clash of the Titles!

It's been almost a year since COTT opened its voting-booth doors and invited everyone in. Over the past twelve months, readers have chosen 25 Clash winners and received 48 free books. And along the way, a family formed. That family consists of the voters, authors, staff, and the 25+ blogs who have banded together in mutual support with COTT.

This is cause for major celebration! So COTT is doing it up to the nines.

Clash of the Titles' first annual Tournament of Champions begins next month! Over the course of four weeks, past winners from the previous year will compete in a series of clashes for the ultimate prize: the Laurel Award. The Laurel, COTT's most prestigious honor, is awarded by public vote to a single author among the year's champions.

Voters are expected to turn out in droves to support their favorites and participate in games just for readers. Each week, COTT sponsors—consisting of various authors and staff—will issue fun challenges to readers along with the chance to win gift cards, critique services, a business card design, and more. A dozen sponsors are lined up for the event so far. That's a lot of prizes!

Throughout the month, details and updates on the Tournament of Champions will be shared on the COTT website and featured within the Blog Alliance. To help spread the word, please grab the special Tournament Button (below) to display on your site. Then send a link to your page to: contactcott at gmail dot com to enter the special COTT Shout-About drawing.

My New Venture!

Good Morning Friends!
As if I'm not busy enough, I've taken on a new venture as Ad Sales Representative for The Wordsmith Journal. This new magazine is geared to reach Christian readers, retailers, & music fans as well as libraries and other outlets for the Christian writer and musician.

We have already secured interviews with big house published authors to bring name recognition to The Wordsmith Journal immediately, including Kelly Hancock, Worthy Publishing, Deborah Raney, Simon & Schuster, Debby Mayne, Abingdon and authors from Zondervan. Additionally, there will be a featured article on Joe Bonsall of the Oak Ridge Boys in the near future and guest columns from celebrities. Musically, we will be interviewing Rachael Lampa next week and will be meeting with the Gospel Music Association in the next few weeks.

As a reader, I'm constantly on the lookout for new books and great authors. As an author I know the million dollar question is and continues to be: "How do I reach readers?”

The Wordsmith Journal is one answer to both questions!

What readers will find in every monthly edition of The Wordsmith Journal
Entertaining articles & Inspiring interviews of authors, music artists, and leaders in the publishing and music industries

Reviews of exciting new books and music

News from Christian authors, music artists, and publishers

Information about new releases

Online Book club & Reader forums

The Wordsmith Journal Book Club (TWJ BOOK CLUBS) will feature one fiction and one nonfiction book each month and will be supported by online reader forums, local chapters, a network of sponsoring bookstores, and an annual Readers’ Pick Awards contest. Featured titles and the Readers’ Pick Awards will be highly promoted though online advertising, our extensive social media contacts, and via The Wordsmith Journal e-Newsletter. A music club, forums, and awards are also under development.

Advantages for Authors:
The overall mission of The Wordsmith Journal is to build relationships between authors and readers, with the prayer those relationships overflow in fellowship among readers over good books.

Understanding The Wordsmith Journal is a newborn babe, we realized we had an additional resource that we could use to maximize authors and musicians exposure along with the magazine by creating PDF catalogs each month of the books and music products advertised in The Wordsmith Journal and emailing them to our database of over 7500 retailers, libraries and readers monthly.
How does that breakdown? An author who advertises with The Wordsmith Journal receives in excess of 7500 impressions (impressions are measured by people who have access to seeing or hearing about a product) through the catalog alone. Think about it - a $75.00 ad being viewed by 7000 potential readers & book buyers (not to mention the music fans who will be visiting the site) = less than $.01 per person - guaranteeing you massive exposure for a minimal investment!

For Book Stores & Book Clubs:
There is no charge for bookstores to sponsor and/or host a TWJ Book Club. Sponsors will receive complementary downloadable posters, signage, and other promotional materials and helps as well as attractive discounts on the featured titles and a listing with a hotlink to their website on the sponsor page.
The first online edition of The Wordsmith Journal will launch October 1, 2011 and the print edition of The Wordsmith Journal, is scheduled to release in Fall 2012!

Well friends, I hope you'll join me in my new endeavor! For more information on this exciting new resource, email me at: pthib07@gmail.com and I'll answer your questions & send you the link and password to the mock website.
Until later....take care, God Bless and remember....a book opens the door to a whole new world!

COTT Blog Alliance - Guest Post by Jennifer Slattery

The other day my daughter orally lamented a previous conversation. “I always think of my best come-backs too late.” I know how she feels, although I’m probably on the other end of the spectrum—I often wish I hadn’t said X or Y once the conversation is done. At least in writing we can carefully craft our words, which should make it easier, right? Not necessarily. Writing effective, authentic, snappy dialogue is a skill that must be honed. And yet, when done well, it plunges the reader deep into the story and provides vivid characterization.
This last week two authors threw their “chatty-keyboards” into the Clash of the Titles' ring and although both excerpts were phenomenal, Sarah Sundin, author of A Memory Between Us, wowed readers with her printed banter.
Here’s a snippet of her COTT competing excerpt:
Jack made out Ruth’s shapely figure coming down Northgate Street. She couldn’t afford the new olive drab uniforms some of the nurses wore, but she sure looked smart in the dark blue jacket and medium blue skirt.
Jack stepped back around the corner. He unzipped his lightweight leather flight jacket, made sure his shirt collar was open, and stuffed his hands into the pockets of his olive drab trousers. Had to look casual.
He let Ruth pass, then fell in behind her. “‘One misty moisty morning.’”
Ruth looked over her shoulder and smiled.
“‘When cloudy was the weather, I chanced to meet an old man clothed all in leather. He began to compliment and I began to grin. How do you do? And how do you do? And how do you do again?’”
Amusement crinkled her eyes. “It’s afternoon.”
“Yeah, but it’s misty and moisty. Life in England has taught me what that means.”
“No misty moisty mornings in California?”
“In January, not August.” Jack proceeded down the flagstone sidewalk. “And look, you chanced to meet an old man clothed all in leather.”
Gotta love that phrase, “Misty, moisty morning,” an example of great dialogue and fun alliteration!
The story it came from is about a determined soldier on a mission to win a woman’s heart:
Major Jack Novak has never failed to meet a challenge--until he meets army nurse Lieutenant Ruth Doherty. When Jack lands in the army hospital after a plane crash, he makes winning Ruth's heart a top-priority mission. But he has his work cut out for him. Not only is Ruth focused on her work in order to support her orphaned siblings back home, she also is determined not to give her heart to any man.
As the danger and tension of World War II rise to a fever pitch, Jack and Ruth will need each other more than ever. Can Jack break down her defenses? Or are they destined to go their separate ways?
From the English countryside to the perilous skies over France, A Memory Between Us takes you on a journey through love, forgiveness, and sacrifice.
Sarah Sundin is the author of A Distant Melody. Her great-uncle flew with the US Eighth Air Force in England during WWII. Sarah lives in California with her husband and three children.
Romance, tough, rugged men, and rich history make this novel a must read!
Want to nibble on a few more COTT winning excerpts and win great prizes in the process? Make sure to join us for the ultimate literary challenge where COTT winners go head to head in our Tournament of Champions on October 10th to November 4th! What better way to launch the Holiday season than with a stash of great books won in our tournament give-away?

She also co-hosts (with five other authors) the Facebook faith community, Living by Grace, a modern-day “meet at the well” experience where believers around the globe can unite, fellowship, and be refreshed.

Saturday Spotlight - New Release from White Rose Publishing!

Good Morning Friends!
My trip to WA was filled with a roller-coaster ride of emotions...fun & excitement tempered by sadness and grief because Terry wasn't there to enjoy his daughter/sil/son & grandson. Alas, life goes on. Today I'm speaking at the Red River Romance Writers group and Oct 8th I'll be attending an event at San Antonio Romance Writers group with WRP owner Rhonda Penders! Of course I'll be staying at the beautiful Silver Spur guest ranch while in the area. That's my life in a nutshell so without further ado...here's this week's new release from White Rose Publishing!
When wildlife photographer Savannah Matthews takes an unexpected detour off of Belize’s scenic coast and becomes stranded on a lush, tropical island, she senses she’s about to encounter something wild and dangerous—something from a long ago, forgotten past.
What she does find, will change her life forever.

Scarred both physically and emotionally, Grant Duncan guards his privacy. Those who dare set foot on his private island come face-to-face with his fierce determination, and long-handled spear. But, when Savannah arrives, she challenges him like no other.

Will Savannah break through Grant’s barriers, and convince him God still has a plan for his life?

Another Heartwarming Review of The Visionary

Hello Again Friends and time for another review of The Visionary, this one by friend & fellow WR author, Donna Basinow (aka Donna B Snow).

Wonderful story! Got to read it!

This was one story I didn't want to put down. I fell in love with Trevor and Taylor right from the start. The love between this brother and sister drips from the pages as they look out for each other, sharing their heartaches - then learning to let go.

But still, Trevor's over-protectiveness is no match for Alex's fast-growing feelings for Taylor. I couldn't help but root for Alex. I could feel the attraction between them, that instant attraction when two souls connect. The patience he shows as he gets to know her and understand all she's been through can only come from God.

I loved the detail of Taylor's interior designs also. The warmth of the description, colors and textures, made me feel like I was there. So beautiful!

And then the additional romance between Trevor and Pam is just icing on the cake.

The Visionary is a Christian romance unlike any other I've read. I think Ms. Thibodeaux is a visionary herself.

Thank you, Donna!

Well Friends, as you know, The Visionary is available for pre-order on Amazon and B&N and I'm offering anyone who orders the book a pdf of the ENTIRE Tempered series FREE! - just email me a copy of your receipt at: pthib07@gmail.com - this offer ends on Sunday so hurry!

Guess that's all for now!

Until later....take care, Be Blessed and remember....when you expect miracles, miracles happen!

Dialogue--Snappy Dialogue, That Is

Coming Up at Clash of the Titles, October 10-November 4, 2011
The first annual, Tournament of Champions! 
Over a FOUR week period, SIXTEEN previous COTT champs will face-off in EIGHT different mini-Clashes.
Only ONE will take home The Laurel Award.
With Clashes, games, and prizes galore, you won't want to miss this month-long celebration!
*Guest post by Lisa Lickel
Dialogue lets your characters be heard. It’s their voice; their conversation amongst themselves. It’s how they tell their story. Dialogue is talk. Discussion. Arguments. Jokes. Questions and answers. Foibles. Mystery. Mesmerism. It’s the muscle on the skeleton of the story.
The writer’s ability to conquer natural dialogue comes out of how well we know our characters. The reader’s ability to hear natural-sounding dialogue comes from the depth from which he is drawn into the story.
      Using dialogue in a book helps readers see that characters spend time with each other for a reason, even if they’re stranded on desert islands. Tom Hanks had Wilson in the move Cast Away, after all. Dialogue is more than internal mutterings or their revelations to the reader. It needs to be heard, not just read. The words need to translate immediately to sound in the reader’s inner ear, and thus be natural, no matter the setting.
What can we deduce from these two small pieces of the excerpts in this Clash? Are you in time, in story, in the character’s emotions? Can you cheer for them? Figure out exactly what will happen next, or are you eager to turn the page for more?
“Would you mind if I walked with you?”
      “As long as we’re not together.”
      “All right.” He strode into the street and spread his arms as wide as his grin. “There. We’re not together.”
     “Jack!” she cried…. “Get back up here.” Ruth motioned frantically. “Don’t make me fix you up again.”
“Perhaps you cannot wait for the wedding night?”
      Her brown eyes simmered. “Why you insufferable cad!” She raised her hand to slap him.
He caught it and lifted it to his lips for a kiss, eyeing her with delight.
She studied him then released a sigh. “You tease me, sir.” Snatching her hand from his, she stepped back. “But what would I expect from you?”
In a novel, talk must have a purpose. A conversation shouldn’t be talk for the sake of filling time or space. Readers have only until the last page to spend with people in a book, so writers must not waste time. Dialogue is meant to reveal something useful, important to the story line—passion, motive, or confession.
Why Snappy? Characters must speak true to their nature. While snappy it might not describe the personality, it implies action, tension, perhaps a slip of the tongue or a revelation that might even surprise the character, but certainly should surprise the reader.

Clash of the Titles hopes you are intrigued by these little snippets of story and want to find out more about the books and authors. Stop by and you’ll get that chance! Meet the authors and leave comments to enter the drawing for a free book.

Latest Update on THE VISIONARY

Hello Friends,

Well, I'm in WA visiting my daughter/SIL/Grandson & son and having a blast! My son is in a play, Spelling Bee @ Tacoma Little Theatre which we're going to see on Sunday and we're also supposed to look at giant sand castles, attend the horse races at Emerald Downs and all sorts of fun activities!

But today, I wanted to fill you in on the latest updates with The Visionary.

The book is available NOW for Pre-Order on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

To celebrate I am offering you a deal!

Pre-order The Visionary and email a copy of your receipt to me at: pthib07@yahoo.com & I will GIVE you a pdf of the entire Tempered Series!

But hurry! This offer ends Sunday, Sept 11th!

A Visionary is someone who sees into the future; Taylor Forrestier sees into the past but only as it pertains to her work. Hailed by her peers as “a visionary with an instinct for beauty and an eye for the unique” Taylor is undoubtedly a brilliant architect and gifted designer. But she and twin brother Trevor, share more than a successful business. The two share a childhood wrought with lies and deceit and the kind of abuse that’s disgustingly prevalent in today’s society. Can the love of God and the awesome healing power of His grace and mercy free the twins from their past and open their hearts to the good plan and the future He has for their lives? 
Find out in…The Visionary ~ Where the awesome power of God’s love heals the most wounded of souls.
