"Violet Dawn"

by Brandilyn Collins

She's done it again! Another great read!


Something sinuous brushed against Paige’s knee. She jerked her leg away.

What was that? She rose to a sitting position, groped around with her left hand.

Fine wisps wound themselves around her fingers.


She yanked backward, but the tendrils clung. Something solid bumped her wrist.

Paige gasped. With one frantic motion she shook her arm free, grabbed the side of the hot tub, and heaved herself out.

Paige Williams slips into her hot tub in the blackness of night—and finds herself face to face with death.

Alone, terrified, fleeing a dark past, Paige must make an unthinkable choice.

In Violet Dawn, hurtling events and richly drawn characters collide in a breathless story of murder, revenge and the need to belong. One woman’s secrets unleash an entire town’s pursuit, and the truth proves as elusive as the killer in their midst.

"Don't forget to breathe..."

"Something That Lasts"

by James David Jordan

Another Blog tour!

It is the first novel written by James David Jordan. To quote James, "I was tired of Hollywood and the popular press treating adultry like a harmless frolic, while 'Something That Lasts' is a positive, hopeful book, it also paints a realistic picture of the devastating impact that adultery has on families and children."

Another blog tour!

"We live in a squat. We don’t know squat. We don’t have squat. We don’t do squat. We don’t give a squat. People say we’re not worth squat."

Squat brings you through 24 hours in the life of a homeless man named Squid. Taylor Field brings the reality of New York's inner city to light. He doesn't leave out the smells, squallar, and ugliness. He doesn't leave out the alcolhol, drugs, and self-abuse. He shows it like it is because he knows what it is like. Taylor Field has worked since 1986 in the inner city of New York where he is pastor of East Seventh Baptist Church/Graffiti Community Ministries.

911 Patiot Day

Today we remember the lives of the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks of 9-11-2001. We also recall the heroic sacrifices of civil servants, military personnel, and private citizens that responded to the call of duty to rescue, save, and defend the lives of others. Let us continue to pray for the men and women in uniform who are laying down their lives in active military service for our country.

Patriot Day occurs on 9-11 of each year, designated in memory of those who died in the 9-11-2001 attacks.

On 9-4-02 President George W. Bush used his authority, created by a resolution of the U.S. Congress, to proclaim 9-11-2002 as Patriot Day. He has continued to make the same declaration every year since.

On this day, the President directs that the flag of the United States of America be flown at half-staff and displayed from individual American homes, at the White House, and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments, both home and abroad. The President also asks Americans to observe a moment of silence begining a 8:46 A.M. {Eastern Dalight Time} marking the first plane crash on 9-11-2001.

{a few facts}

More U.S. fatalities were sustained on 9-11-2001 than were on 12-7-1941, the day Pearl Harbor was bombed. By the end of the day, 2,973 people were killed, 246 on the four planes, 2,602 in the Twin Towers, and 125 at the Pentagon. Among the deaths were 343 N.Y. Firefighters, 23 N.Y.Police Officers, and 37 Port Authority Police Officers. In addition 24 people remain listed as missing to this day.

Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom are military responses to the continuing threat of terrorism in our world. Currently 2,966 men and women have died while serving our country in the war against terror and 20,216 have sustained injuries. Approximately 400,000 troops are deployed on foreign soil throughout the world defending the freedom that we enjoy here at home. Let's keep them in our prayers.

"It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ."-Patrick Henry, Patriot
