Big News! Time to Celebrate!

For the past month, I’ve had some big news that I’ve been waiting to share. A month ago, I learned that the talented Nadine Brandes has agreed to professionally edit Dare! 

Nadine Brandes’ first book A Time to Die released earlier this month in ebook and paperback. You might remember seeing my blog post If I Had One Year to Live as part of her blog tour.

I stumbled onto Nadine Brandes almost by accident. I had recently read Jill Williamson’s By Darkness Hid. It was both fantasy and Christian, a combination I hadn’t seen often. I looked up the publisher: Marcher Lord Press.

I quickly learned that Marcher Lord Press had recently changed its name to Enclave Publishing, a publisher focusing exclusively on Christian speculative fiction. I browsed their list of books, reading the blurbs about each of the books and visiting each of the author websites. I also read through Enclave Publishing’s blog and came across a guest post by Nadine Brandes. I followed the link to her blog, and I guess the rest is history.

After visiting her blog obsessively and waiting eagerly for her book to release, I finally gathered my courage to see if she would edit my book as part of her editing services. And she chose my book to fit into her busy schedule! Mine!

To celebrate both this opportunity and the release of Nadine’s book, I’m giving away either a paperback or ebook copy of her new book A Time to Die. Just follow the directions below! The winner will be announced on October 17!

    That’s so awesome Tricia! 🙂
    The funny thing is, I found out about Marcher Lord/Enclave from Jill’s books as well, since I own all of them, lol.
    Congrats again!

    Congrats on the edit! 🙂
    I usually find new books to read through book blogs. 🙂 I stumbled upon them around August of this year (I know…been living under a rock!) and a whole new world of books, books, and more books opened up (seriously…my wishlist has grown a mile long!). In fact, that was how I first stumbled upon “A Time to Die”. Before that, I reviewed books from some Indie sites (love supporting Indie authors) and then just browsed Amazon to see what might strike my fancy. 🙂

    I’m glad you’re supporting Nadine! She’s a friend of mine from summer camp when we were kids. (Oh, and I like to find new books to read at the library or through my book club.)

  • Sue says:

    I finished A Time To Die a couple days ago…. excellent book! I bought the e-book version because I couldn’t wait for the few days until it came out in paperback, but definitely need the paperback (signed? :-))!

    Yay! A new author (you!) For me to enjoy!

    I find new books to read through word of mouth and social media.

  • Noel Young says:

    I find new books many different ways. It seems I’m always on the lookout. Recently, I’ve been discovering a lot of books through recommendations on blogs or podcasts.

    • So have I! I discovered that many of my favorite authors recommend other authors in the same genre, so I tend to track those down. I’ve also discovered that I love WordPress’s reader feature for following all the blogs!

    I find new books to read through recommendations from my sister and son! They like the same kind of books I do, so we share a lot!

    I find new books from recommendations and the library (if I can download it without leaving home I’m super excited!)
