Love Books? Silly Question. You'll want to attend this Facebook Party.

Forty authors (yes, 40!) are hosting a Facebook event called the Wyoming Christmas Extravaganza. It's not really in Wyoming, but it truly is an extravaganza. The party lasts for three days! This sounds like a Biblical wedding feast. It's definitely a feast of books. We'll enjoy games and chit-chat, and every author during their time slot from December 3-5 (Thurs.-Sat.) is giving away items and books, so there'll be over a hundred chances to win. PLUS, there'll be a triple grand prize giveaway. 

Readers...these are all paperbacks!

(There's a Fire Tablet and a $100 Amazon Gift Card up for drawing too!)

Besides all this, there'll be some freebies for everyone who attends.
(We're talking some luscious book downloads. *Sigh*)

So head on over and join the Whispers in Wyoming group page here:

You can enter for one of the grand prizes right now via this rafflecopter (or click on that image above):

Make sure you don't miss it!

Launch Team Call-Out for Historical Fiction Lovers

Hey friends, I am expanding my launch team for my 2021 book release -- the sequel to Mist O'er the Voyageur. I've been calling it Song for the Hunter, but the official title is still to be determined. Want to join me on my team?

Here's what it means. You get a free, early read of the book in pdf format. I'll also send you some post cards and cover swag that you can use for yourself or pass on to your friends, your dentist, cousin Petunia, whoever you see.

Sounds great, right? 

As we are a team in this, here's your part. You commit to post a review of the book when it releases, wherever you can. Amazon and the publisher's site; Bookbub and Goodreads if you use those, your blog if you have one, and anywhere else (such as in those busy Facebook reader groups or other social sites). You'd also be willing to mention the book from time to time where appropriate -- in those same reading groups, on your personal profile pages, with your circle of friends at church, to your local librarian (yes, please!). 

If you've read Mist O'er the Voyageur, I hope you left a review. If you loved the book and would be thrilled to help me get the word out with the sequel, please let me know asap. Email me at naomimusch(at)naomimusch(dot)com.

Oh--and if you haven't read Mist, I hope you'll move it up your list. You can grab the e-book for only $2.99 on Amazon, and right now my publisher is having a big paperback sale on the LPC site. You can get it direct for 40% off plus free shipping (see the codes below). That offer is site-wide, so go do some Christmas shopping for your book lovers (or to sneak something into your own stocking). 

Thanks, friends!

Book Review: Things We Didn't Say by Amy Lynn Green

I’ve just become an Amy Green fan. Have you ever watched someone finger weave? Or knit? Or stitch together an intricately-designed quilt? I can’t do any of those things, and I’m enthralled by watching those who can. But I do write, and I’ve been studying WWII POW camps on the home front, and maybe that’s why I am so in awe of Amy Green’s first novel (according to the author’s note). 

Using a very atypical story format, she has written what seems like a giant quilt pattern of relationships and story layers and laid each piece perfectly into place, seaming together a story rich with history, intrigue, and emotion. And like a finger-weaver, she kept hold of numerous threads at once and managed to snug each one tightly into place. She also resisted the urge to give away too much too soon, and I found myself trying to read between the lines of “things we didn’t say” to ferret out hints. All this combined it gave me a powerful reading experience. 

The story itself, written through letters by various characters, all pointing to a charge of treason against the sharp-edged yet endearing protagonist, is a format that had to have been extremely challenging to write, especially since much of the correspondence overlaps in time and through distance during the second World War. I applaud her skill, and most of all, her attention to historic detail. I look forward to seeing what she writes next.

Do love the WWII era and other stories set on the home front?

The Love Coward takes place just after the war.

Finally, Burke is home and Tulla's dreams can proceed as planned...or can they?

Available now in paperback and e-book.

Also on Kindle Unlimited.
