When Was the Last Time You Went on a Novel Journey?

From time to time, I like to remind readers of the wonderful network of resources that are available. If you have not taken time to breeze by Novel Journey, then you are missing out on some of the best Christian authors coming or going.

Gina Holmes, Ane Mulligan and Jessica, gals I'm thrilled to call my friends, have worked hard setting forth a mission to let the world know that there is more to Christian writing than what is stereotyped.

As the brainchild of Gina Holmes, Novel Journey began as one writer's journey to publication. However, it wasn't long before God took hold and surged the blogsite into one of the Christian markets' hottest sites. Publishers, agents and authors flock to Novel Journey for the most current book reviews, and personal author interviews available. It wasn't long before Gina needed help. She enlisted the talents of Ane Mulligan and Jessica Dotta to grow the blogsite and offer even more diversity.

The site is full of wonderful interviews and links to others who are willing to share, help and offer inspiration to those who look for good, wholesome fiction reading or guidance in their writing journey.
Novel Reviews adds Kelly Klepfer and her group of contributing writers who bring you overviews of mounds of Christian fiction now available in bookstores.
Check out Novel Journey and Novel Reviews. If you're looking for the site to put you in touch with good reading, type in Novel Journey. (

Take time to meet my wonderful friends, Gina Holmes, Ane Mulligan and Jessica Dotta.

IT'S Here!






Poor Jackie Hoffner -- only known for her famous bag of store bought potato chips at the church socials, broke down and actually cooked. She never dreamed her internet recipe for mushroom casserole would end up as a crime scene. Jackie only wanted to show the church ladies she could cook.

Only Virginia Smith could make a murder out of a mushroom. Filled with her unique fun loving humor, Ginny spins a wonderful cozy mystery that twists and turns into a surprise ending. Murder by Mushroom is a fun and surprising book you'll enjoy spending a Sunday afternoon reading.

Steeple Hill has a hit on their hands -- one that will keep you wondering about your next church dinner and passing over any casseroles as you fill your plate. A guaranteed enjoyable read, Murder by Mushroom hits the shelves August 8, 2007. And you're one of the first ones to see it.
