Free Amish and Historical Romances ~ No Strings Attached!

Update March 28 In this time of self-isolation, many Christian authors are offering their Kindle books free, just to bless readers in this time of uncertainty.  Take this opportunity to fill up your e-reader with good books that glorify God. Amish Fiction and Historical Romance are fun to read, especially if you’re feeling a little isolated in this time of quarantine! Fortunately, we still have electricity, telephone, the Internet, and our Kindles! These books are offered by generous authors who want to bless readers. You can “buy” them free through Amazon, and you can read some of them with your Kindle Unlimited subscription, which is a nice way to bless the author, since the authors still get paid when you read them that way!  It would be really nice to leave a review, too. It doesn’t have to be a long review – just a quick note to say that you enjoyed the book.  It’s not required, though… these books are free, with no strings attached! Remember that most of them are only free for a few days, so be sure to check the prices before you buy them.   Amish Fiction A Sugarcreek Amish Romance (Amish of Sugarcreek Romance Read More

55 Contemporary Christian Romance Books – No strings attached

Updated March 28 Have you been reading more, in this time of social distancing?  I hope you are.  Social media is full of panic and forebodings. Even Christians, with our faith in a God who loves and protects us, can be alarmed by the news. We need words of encouragement, uplifting stories to brighten our days. Right now, many Christian authors are offering their Kindle books free, just to bless readers in this time of uncertainty.  Take this opportunity to fill up your e-reader with good books that glorify God. Most of these books will only be free for a few days, so be sure to check the price before you order them! I scanned the listings and reviews to make sure they really are Christian fiction, but I haven’t read them all. The books come with no strings attached, but I have a couple of suggestions if you’d like to thank the author.  First, leave an Amazon review.  It doesn’t have to be long or fancy – just a note that you enjoyed the book. Second, if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber and the book is available in Kindle Unlimited, consider borrowing and reading it that way. It’s Read More

Is There a Quilter on Your Christmas List?

I’ve enjoyed writing the traditions of my own Swedish heritage into my Glory Quilts books. My fictional Anderson family are descendants of immigrant farmers in central Minnesota – just like my own family! Throughout the series, Great-aunt Violet – spinster, quilter, and genealogist – chronicles the family history in a series of quilts. There’s plenty of laughter and fun and romance in these books, along with a multi-generational mystery that dates back to before World War II. And romance, too, of course! To make it even better, there are QUILTS!  In each of the Glory Quilts books, the heroine and Aunt Violet make a quilt together. Those quilts are featured on the cover of the books, and you can get the patterns to make your own.  You can find those on Amazon, Etsy, and my website, in digital and paper formats. The Glory Quilts Christmas Gift Set So… just the other day, I had a brilliant idea: I put together a Glory Quilts gift set with The Christmas Glory Quilt and The Swedehearts Glory Quilt and their patterns. It’s the perfect Christmas present for the quilter or reader on your list! I’ll inscribe and sign the books if you like, Read More
