A Christmas Letter to You

It’s Christmas, the season when nature wraps itself in beauty like a shiny, glittering package to the world. We gather our family and friends a little closer and focus on making good memories and good food.

Among all the hustle and bustle of our preparations and parties, the most important thing we focus on is the reason for the season. The Nativity, the appearance of a new Star, Angelic choirs, a manger in a stable and Three wise men – just to name a few.

The Greatest Gift of All, though, is that the tiny child born so long ago is our Lord and Savior and He’s coming back. We celebrate the gift of His birth and the promise of His return.

My wish to all of you is that you have a Merry and Blessed Christmas this year celebrating God’s perfect gift, as well as a Happy and Hopeful New Year as we look forward to His coming.

Merlin's Shadow by Robert Treskillard

Today I'm touring on behalf of the CSFF:

           (The Merlin Spiral book 2)           


The long awaited sequel is here, YAY! Gifted author Robert Treskillard was featured here with his first book, Merlin's Blade, in May, 2013. I knew then that the wait was going to be worth it, I hope you agree with me.

Merlin's story is as old as time and yet completely fresh and exciting in this series. He's young, only the beginning of his career as advisor to Arthur. Here we see him become the man we all admire and respect. His human weaknesses aren't hidden, he's easy to connect with in many ways, and yet you still see the faith and loyalty woven so tightly into his character rising to the top and leading you on.

The words are so well written, I feel like I'm actually there with the young group of protectors. The characters themselves so well written they give me chills. Merlin's sister particularly. She creeps me out even more than her grandfather, the leader of the druids.

It's a fast paced, high intensity, can't sleep until you put it down story that will suck you in and leave you wanting more. Be sure you read Merlin's Blade first though, reading a series in order is helpful. :)


Betrayal. After destroying the sinister Druid Stone and freeing his people from its dark control, Merlin finds himself to be a royal advisor without a king. Along with his friend Garth and Natalenya, his betrothed, Merlin treks north with the orphaned Arthur in hopes of keeping the young ruler safe from soldiers misled by their turncoat captain. Relentlessly pursued by his nemesis Vortigern, Merlin and his band make for the fortress of Dintaga.

But dangers multiply when Merlin realizes that Vortigern is not his only enemy. Even his own sister appears bent on Merlin's destruction. As the threat on all their lives increases, Merlin discovers their only hope is sailing to the lands of eternal darkness and once again cleansing the world from an ancient and powerful evil.

“Turn the pages, and you can almost feel the fog rolling in off the moors, smell the low heather, and catch a glint off a blade.” Best selling author Wayne Thomas Batson

“Treskillard builds a real person in Merlin … whose belief in honor and family make him a figure to cheer for.”— Christy Award winning author Jill Williamson

Read a Sample Chapter HERE.


Robert Treskillard is a Celtic enthusiast who holds a B.A. in Biblical & Theological Studies from Bethel University, Minnesota. He has been crafting stories from his early youth, is a software developer, graphic artist, and sometime bladesmith. He and his wife have three children and are still homeschooling their youngest. They live in the country outside St. Louis, Missouri.

It all began when Robert’s son wanted to learn blacksmithing and sword-making. The two set out to learn the crafts and in the process were told by a relative that they were descended from a Cornish blacksmith.

This lit the fire of Robert’s imagination, and so welding his Celtic research to his love of the legends of King Arthur, a book was forged—Merlin’s Blade, book one of The Merlin Spiral, now published by Zondervan / BLINK Young Adult Books and available worldwide wherever books are sold.

The Hometown Lowdown

"Hi, my name is April and I'm addicted to Pinterest."

Not to make light of addictions, but my sister and I have both become quite attached to the site. Mine got locked down to what they termed 'suspicious posts' (no clue what they were and they didn't say. Hacker maybe?) and it took me months to finally get it back on line.

But now it is and I'm having fun, fun, FUN!

I've started a new board featuring the places that Kianna and her friends in Dysfunction Junction like to visit, and that I found inspiring to the story. Independence, MO is my hometown too, so if you want a peak at Kianna's hometown and what inspired the setting, here you go. :)

Blame It On the Mistletoe by Joyce Magnin

A Novel of Bright’s Pond


I didn't realize when I signed on to review this book that it was part of a series. (The publishing world as whole needs to be better about advertising this! I love series, but I love to read them in order MORE.) *sigh* Oh well.  This isn't the first time I've complained about this and I'm sure it won't be the last.  :)
It took a few chapters to get into the book and hooked into the story, despite the fact that it really does open with a very curious red tricycle in the nursing home. I think it was because there was a lot of references to the previous stories. Catching the reader up on the back story to set up the new one. That's normal, necessary even. And when you've read the earlier books, you don't tend to notice it, because you're not wondering what the characters are referring to.
Once I got in a few chapters, I began to enjoy it more. The characters are all very quirky! I'd say Bright's Pond was a town all it's own, even before their fountain was rebuilt by the odd little man who's come to town. Griselda Sparrow (what a name!), the main character is caught between two men, not sure of her true feelings for either, all while trying to experience what it's like to live on her own and not care for her sister Agnes. That's hard for her to do when Agnes keeps calling her at the drop of hat to come to the nursing home. Tack on this funny little mystery of what's making the nursing home inhabitants act so strange, and Griselda has her hands full.
It was an enjoyable read with a unique cast and setting, but be sure you read the earlier books first!

Is There Really a Fountain of Youth in Paradise?

Welcome back to Bright 's Pond, where strange happenings are afoot at the Greenbrier Nursing Home. Strange even for Bright 's Pond. The residents suddenly act like kids again riding trikes, climbing trees, and of all things falling in love. Some of the townsfolk blame it on the crooked new gazebo, or its builder, a quirky little man who quotes Don Quixote, collects water from the fountain at the Paradise trailer park, and disappears on a regular basis.

While Chief of Police Mildred Blessing investigates the mystery, Griselda and her friends deal with a luau Thanksgiving, preparations for the Christmas pageant, and maybe even an upcoming wedding. Only, in Bright 's Pond, nothing ever really goes as planned . . .



I love getting a chance to know the person behind the story. Joyce was kind enough to answer a few quirky questions of my own.

Being a writer is a great job. What's the worst job you've ever had?

HA! Any job that required me to be there. LOL. But working at a newspaper building ads was so insipid and boring.

If you could meet anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you say to them?

Emily Dickinson for the dead person. I would say, "Emily, I finally understand what you meant by circumference." Guess you have to read Emily Dickinson but truly, that's what I say.

What’s your happiest childhood memory?

I was five six years old and got home from kindergarten to find nine puppies in the kitchen. I got to play with them. My mother found them in a cave in the woods behind our house. She got the mama dog also. We got to keep one of the pups. We named her Polly and she was the best dog ever.

If you had to marry a fictional character, from film, television, or books, who would it be?

Gandalf. He has great fireworks and is a wizard and all.

Very intriguing, Joyce! I worked at a newspaper in the circulation dept. for a short time at the end of high school. Would much rather be writing! :) Thanks so much for taking time to hang out with us.

Joyce Magnin is the author of several books, including The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow, named one of the "Top 5 Best Christian Fiction Books of 2009" by Library Journal. Her short fiction pieces and articles have been published in such magazines as Relief Journal, Parents Express, Sunday Digest, and Highlights for Children. A member of the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Fellowship, Joyce is a frequent workshop leader at various writer’s conferences and women’s church groups. She has three children and one grandson, and is mom to a neurotic parakeet who lives with her in Havertown, Pennsylvania.

Dysfunction Junction Gift Certificates Available

It's Live! Get you copy today...

Dysfunction Junction releases today! WOOT! My head is spinning and I'm so excited to share it with you. :)



“I’m twenty-six and I’ve never been kissed.” Staring into the bathroom mirror while making this brilliant comment is supposed to make it feel real. It doesn’t.

Finding true love these days feels impossible to Kianna Ravencamp, only dysfunction surrounds her. Her sister’s married to an abusive husband and marriages she’s admired for years are falling apart. Maybe relationships like her parent’s don’t exist anymore. She dreams of true love and a family, but she’s never even been kissed.

For her birthday, her best friend gives her a journal and dares her to follow her dream of songwriting and vocal lessons quickly follow. Kianna’s finally dared to dream big… if the three men in her life don’t get in her way.

Nick Steele, her new vocal partner is flirtatious and charming. Derek Simpson, the new vocal coach is asking her out for coffee. Even Jason Payne, a childhood friend is acting odd. For the first time in her life, she will have to navigate dating and flirtation. Will her inexperience be her downfall? How will these relationships affect her songwriting career? Letting go and trusting God is the only answer that brings the path to real love and success.

Dysfunction Junction Sample

           “Kianna, you have such a pretty face, honey.” Miss Bertha examines me as she leans on her tennis ball capped walker. 

            “If only you could lose weight.” Reaching out, she pats my ample tummy.

            My mouth turns to cotton. Oh, no she didn’t!

            I want so bad to respond, but words fail me. Heat creeps up my neck and floods my cheeks. Tears sting the back of my eyes as I glance around the church hall to see if anyone noticed this mortifying exchange.

            “You know, a pretty girl like you could have any man she wanted if she took care of herself.” Miss Bertha squints her eyes, as if she’s analyzing the amount of effort it would take to make me truly suitable. “Your blonde hair and brown eyes are actually attractive.”

            Actually attractive…I’m not sure if that counts as a compliment.

            “I’m sure you’re right.” I mumble, clamping my mouth shut on what I want to say—you mean old biddy!

            Miss Bertha shuffles forward and for a moment, her skirt looks like it is harboring a pack of wrestling puppies. And she thinks I need to lose weight? Isn’t that like the hippo calling the elephant fat?

            I look for something to distract the nosy busybody. It’s Sunday night at Christ’s Covenant Restoration Branch, my church home since I was a baby. I thought a missionary service would be the one place I was safe.

            Wrong. I wish Jason was here. My best friend since childhood, Jason Payne is like the big brother I never had. He always knows what to say or do to make a situation better, but he’s out of town and I’m on my own.

            “Did you enjoy the missionary slides?” I ask, as the line moves again.

            I want nothing more than to run away, but it would only give her more ammo. I hear her walker click as she moves forward a step with me.

            “Oh, yes. The last set especially touched my heart. Jim is such an angel to be ministering to all those children in Africa. Brings tears to my eyes.” The fore-mentioned drops slide out and ride the wrinkled crevices in her cheeks.

            Jim Noble is the hottest missionary I’ve ever laid eyes on. He also happens to be the sweetest.  He attended the same church youth events with Jason and me for years and we all stayed good friends. That was before Jim grew into his ears and before his family moved to the mission field. It doesn’t matter. He’s not interested in me romantically. To him, I’m a friend. Like I am to every other male I know.

            “He is a good man.” I agree. “I think it’s amazing how God is working in the communities over there.”

            Her head wobbles in agreement. “Too bad he doesn’t have a wife to help him. He’s such a catch; I can’t imagine why he isn’t married yet. I told him so too, tonight.”

            I bet you did. “I’m sure he’s waiting for the right person.”

            I see Jim across the fellowship hall and feel a stab of sympathy. No one leaves a conversation with Miss Bertha unscathed.

            “You might find he’d look your way if you slimmed down.” She eyes my hips and raises an eyebrow.

            I bite my tongue. Oh, Lord. Get me out of here before I say something terrible.

            “Pardon me, Miss Bertha. I see someone I need to speak to.”

            I slide out of the refreshment line and speed walk across the room, ignoring the surprised and probably hurt look aimed at my back. Remembering the wrestling puppies, I slow down and fight the urge to smooth my shirt down over the back of my slacks.

            Heaven help me, but I can’t take anymore of Miss Bertha’s supposedly helpful advice. I’m fat and I know it, but patting my tummy in the middle of a packed social hall is about the rudest thing I’ve experienced yet. Following it up with an attempt at conditional matchmaking, well, that’s par for the course.

            A crowd still surrounds Jim, but he sees me, and waves. I’m surprised he notices me. I return his smile and wave back. Several of the women look surprised at the exchange. I can see the wheels turning in their heads, and after getting Bertha-d, I can’t bring myself to go over there.

            Not that any of them would be hurtful. It’s just the opposite. Some of the women think being single is the only requirement for a successful relationship and they will push me toward anything with testosterone and a bare ring finger.

            Chicken. I kick myself for letting Miss Bertha’s comments bother me so much, but they’re hard to ignore —mostly because, despite her tactless delivery, she’s right.


            Walking to my car, late August heat billows off the black top like a humid oven. I pull open the car door and slide behind the wheel. My cell phone vibrates from the seat beside me. I pull the phone out of my purse and check the caller ID.

            “Hi, Jason, I’m glad you called.”

            “Miss me?” His deep voice echoes with humor and immediately brings lightness to my heart.

            “Every day.”

            “Are you crying?”

             “No.” I hesitate, “Not anymore.” I can’t lie to Jason.

            “What happened?” He waits patiently in silence while I pull my thoughts together.

             “Honestly, I got Bertha-d and I’m really emotional right now.” I give him a brief outline of the night’s events.

            “I wish I could be there with you. I’m sorry I’m going to miss your birthday, but as soon as I’m back, I’m all yours.”

            “Thank you, Jase.” I lean back into the head rest and close my eyes. “I’m feeling a bit better already.”

            We say our goodbyes and I drop the phone back into my bag.
            I feel calmer, but the questions and insecurities are still there. Jesus, If you have a plan to show me, now would be a good time.

The Christmas Star by Ace Collins



Can the broken heart of a child be healed by an unexpected Christmas letter?Robert Reed gave his life for his country in the early days of World War II. His sacrifice was honored when his widow and son were presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor. At Christmas, the final decoration Marge Reed hangs on the family’s tree is that medal. Rather than being a symbol of honor for young Jimmy Reed that shining star represents loss, pain, and suffering.

Yet a message delivered by one of Robert’s fellow soldiers and a mystery letter found in a Bible put a father’s sacrifice and faith into perspective and bring new meaning to not just the star hanging on the Christmas tree but the events of the very first Christmas. Then, when least expected, a Christmas miracle turns a final bit of holiday sadness into a joy that Jimmy has never known.

Read an excerpt HERE.


Citing his Arkansas heritage, Ace Collins defines himself as a storyteller. In that capacity, Ace Collins has authored more than sixty books for twenty-five different publishers that have sold more than 2.5 million copies. His catalog includes novels, biographies, as well as books on history, culture and faith. His current novel from Abingdon, Darkness Before Dawn, has earned scores of great reviews and been chosen by several different book clubs and publications as one of the top reads of 2013. It also made the most inspiring book list on iTunes in July and Hope For Women’s “Top Five Summer Reads.”

Grace by KC Sprayberry

Today I'm featuring yet another great release by my fellow friend and writer. It releases TODAY!


Grace Winston yearns for one last family Christmas before she leaves for England, but first she has to convince her brothers and sisters it's worth their while to come home. While her parents are happy that she's been accepted at Oxford University, they are pining for their family to gather together for the holidays. Grace talks her older brothers and sister into coming home, but then they must convince their other siblings: a brother who attacked their father to get money to feed his drug habit, and a sister who recently gave up alcohol and is raising her four young children alone. While Grace manages to bring them all together, she is soon wondering if this was really worth all the trouble she's gone through, especially when no one acknowledges her efforts to make this a Christmas to remember--until she receives an early gift that leaves her certain that everything will turn out all right.

Grace Winston had celebrated her eighteenth birthday a mere three weeks ago, the same day as Thanksgiving. There were no thanks in her house, no special foods prepared to celebrate her becoming an adult, nothing to mark the day as unique.
Her parents hadn't said "Happy Birthday" until it was time to go to bed. Even then, the acknowledgement had sounded more like "goodnight."

It's not Mama and Papa's fault. They can't help how sad they are. My brothers and sisters should have come like they said they would. They're not even making false promises anymore. All of them claim that they have other plans for Christmas, and we need to get over our selfish desire to have the family together.
For as far back as she could remember, that day has been one where her whole family showed up, until her oldest brother, Adam, decided that he had too much work to spend a week at his childhood home. Mark begged off the next year, claiming his wife's job required him to appear at the White House. The others never bothered to make an excuse the year after that.
Playlist for Grace:


KC Sprayberry started writing young, first as a diarist, and later through an interest in English and creative writing. Her first experience with publication came when she placed third in The Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge contest while in the Air Force, but her dedication to writing came after she had her youngest child, now in his senior year of high school.
Her family lives in Northwest Georgia where she spends her days creating stories about life in the south, and far beyond. More than a dozen of her short stories have appeared in several magazines. Five anthologies feature other short stories. She has three books that are Amazon best sellers: Softly Say Goodbye, Who Am I?, and Mama's Advice. Her other novels available are: Take Chances, Where U @, The Wrong One, The Ghost Catcher, Family Curse … Times Two, and Secret From The Flames.
