Cleaning house!


Today is another book giveaway day!
Leave a comment on this post to win a copy of Matt Bronleewe's ILLUMINATED. This is a very unique treasure-hunt story, which reminds me of THE DA VINCI CODE, but without all the bad theology ideas. =)



August Adams has failed his family before. He's sacrificed relationships in pursuit of adventure, fame, and money. Now the very lives of those he loves depend on his ability to decipher a centuries-old puzzle encrypted in the colorful hand-painted illuminations that adorn three rare Gutenberg Bibles.

It's a secret that could yield unimaginable wealth, undermine two major religions, and change the course of Western civilization. Two ruthless, ancient organizations are willing to do anything to get their hands on it. And August has the span of one transatlantic flight to figure it out.
* WARNING *

One of the reasons I am giving away this book (my only copy) is because while I enjoyed the basic plot of the story, it simply had too much volence for me. I felt the violence and gore was completely unnecessary to the plot, and other reviews on Amazon agree with me. This is definitely not a story for the average church library! However, if those issues don't bother you, then please sign up to win the copy. Maybe you'll enjoy it more than me! I feel this book deserves a home and an appreciative reader!

Drawing will be held Friday morning, March 27th! Sign up now!

I'd like a chance to read it. Unfortunately, when it comes to silencing the Word of God, violence does come into play.

The very first Christian book I wrote was a treasure hunt story. Sooo not like this one, though. It sounds interesting, I think I'd like the chance to try it. Please, sign me up!
