Under New Cover:

I have created new book covers for several books, but this week, I'd like to highlight MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM FLORIDA. If you like clean romance novellas with a holiday theme, you'll love this story. Available at Amazon and other retailers.




She took his hand and pressed it over her heart. “I won’t say it,” she said, “but you feel that beating? That’s your name written on my heart.”

-----

Fashion model, Whitney Hobart snuck off to Florida to solve her Christmas blues. A bad, extremely public breakup combined with endless rounds of holiday cheer seems like simply too much to endure. She’ll hide out at a small hotel on the coast, soak in the winter sunshine, and no one will be the wiser.

But when her secret gets out, the problems she’s tried to escape, multiply, and what’s supposed to be relaxing isn’t anymore. The only good thing remaining is hotel manager, Fletcher Collins.

She finds in him a listening ear, a gentle hand, and maybe, just maybe, the greatest gift of all – love.

News:

My next release will definitely be the long-awaited 852:  SPAWN (Cyborg Romance) Book 2. This story will complete the series and tie up all the loose ends left from Book 1. It's a novella of about 22,000 words.

I have planned to write 2 new Christmas stories this year, but time will tell if I pull it off because my head, right now, is dedicated to finishing all my other series and the list of those books is too long right now to contemplate.

But thank you to my faithful readers who stick with me and leave nice reviews. Thanks also to subscribers who continue to receive my blog posts. STAY TUNED for news of the FREE BOOK coming up at the end of July. You will have to be a subscriber to receive it.

Lastly, I hope you'll pick up a copy of NATE'S HEALING. This short story can be read as a stand alone, so if you're not familiar with The Florida Irish series but like historical romance, it's a perfect fit.

God Bless You

How do you reflect Christ?
I read an article where the author said Christians need to shut up and all I could think while I read it was, “This author needs to shut up.”

I honestly can’t recall my mother ever using the words “shut up” when I was young, and that’s probably a good thing. We (my spouse, daughter, and I) probably say it too often, but then, delicacy was never my first behavior choice. I put that out there, being brutally honest, to make my own point here.

However, to start things off, I refer to the Scripture:

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith … (Gal 5:22).

And

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand (Php 4:5)

Notice the words “gentleness” and “moderation”. These are in essence the same thing, a mildness of spirit that brings peace.

Now, let me say there are times when Christians need to speak up because, unfortunately, the secular non-Christian world sees our silence as acceptance and, often, weakness, as well. But the manner that we speak makes the difference.

Speaking gently, peacefully, is, anymore, harder and harder to do when we are bashed over the head with issues that go outside of our beliefs. As if head-bashing will change our minds in the first place. Yet, twice in the Scriptures are we told to spread the “gospel of peace”, which goes distinctly against that. (Rm 10:15;Eph 6:15)

Peace spoken in gentleness and kindness, with longsuffering and faith. We’re not walked ON in the process, but walked WITH, the other person able to communicate and not feel condemned.

Ah … condemnation. That’s the product of the head-basher. But again, the Word of God says it isn’t part of how we behave. (Rm 8:1) We neither give it to others nor receive it to ourselves, and frankly, as well-meaning as that author was, as correct of a point as they made, I was prompted, instead, to change my words to not be so crass, to maybe, next time, not say “shut up”, but “God bless you.”

And thus, to better reflect Christ. I wonder how that will make the difference in me … in you.

My sales books are the same as in my post two weeks ago, so I'll refer you to it for links and information.

Two books are on preorder now, Book 4 of the SUPERHUMAN series and Book 2 of SPRING-SUMMER ROMANCE by Alex Greenville. (Alex Greenville books are directed at the secular market.)


Sci-fi YA
TBR 6/13/2016

New Book Covers:

I mentioned, in my last post, the new covers on THE ITALIAN SERIES. I also re-covered my TIME-TRAVEL ROMANCE series and BEST-DRESSED series as well.




You will find sale links for these books on the blog.

Upcoming freebies:

There is a one day freebie of one of my YA coming up on the 23rd. I will keep you informed of what book and send a personal note to all subscribers with a download link on that date.

Also, look for a subscriber only freebie sometime in July or August. I haven't decided which or what book, but you will have to be part of the subscriber list to get it.

Q&A:

I would like to address a few thoughts in regards to these books and my past works, in general. My goal has always been to write realistic romance with a happily ever after ending. Sometimes the stories have a heavy Christian message, sometimes they don't. I long ago worked through any doubts I had about this, but from time to time, someone not familiar with my writing brings it back up again.

I once heard it said there are Christian stories and Christian authors. I do some of both, but my morality will always be found in what I write, regardless. For the most part, you will never find curse words in my books no matter the genre or the market (and NEVER use of the f-word).

There is sometimes graphic and/or sexual content, but tastefully done (and in Christian Fiction you will always find a note of it at the beginning of the book). I will not and do not write erotica. I find it disgusting and distasteful. You will also never find homosexual or lesbian characters. I believe God loves everyone, but do not want to support those lifestyles in accordance with my Christian beliefs.

What I'm writing:

I'm currently working on SUPERHUMAN Book 5. This is the last in the series. I also have Book 3 of the FABULOUS series going and to people wondering about the follow-up story to my sci-fi book, 653: RISE OF THE SUN. It is slow-going but will happen sometime, hopefully within six months.

Thank you to the readers who recently wrote me to give me positive and uplifting words. It is great to have heartening feedback. That's what keeps me writing.

Lastly, please if you read one of my stories and liked it, please leave me a review. God bless.

This story sits at #1 in Juvenile Fiction/Christian/Values & Virtues.




Now Under New Cover:

As you can see, OF ALL THE WAYS HE LOVES ME, is now under new book cover, as is THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE. I believe these contemporary updates give these timeless stories a fresh look.

Additionally, I have created new covers for the entire ITALIAN SERIES of books, so that they will match and look more like a series. This comes from the process of learning more about marketing as I've grown older and wiser.



News:

I have revamped the sale links so that series are grouped together at the top under the series title. This should help it be less confusing. THE ITALIAN SERIES and the BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB series both have their own pages. Additionally, I have added some sales links that were missing from certain books. Be sure to take a gander.

Also, read my latest post over on the Grace N' Faith Blog:  Keep Writing. This post dedicated to my writer friends who have struggled some days to keep going.

As always, thanks to my readers and blog subscribers for all your support. Look for some exciting freebies over the summer, specifics to be announced at a later date!

On the webpage:

I have added the audiobook for THE UNDERGROUND (Superhuman) Book 1 to the blog. Keep in mind that all my audiobooks are also available through itunes, though I do not have all the sale links listed.

If you enjoy audiobooks, you'll want to get this one. If you've never downloaded an audiobook before, Audible has a great free book with 30-day trial offer. Make this suspenseful sci-fi your first choice!

News:

Lastly, I have an announcement. I have started a line of adult contemporary romance books under a pen name and have released my first book.

Why? I have long felt that readers might be confused by the many genres I write, as well as the varying content. I am a Christian writer, but not all stories have Christian content. They all have the same feel, the same style of writing, but, simply put, some stories do not call for a religious tone and trying to make them fit takes away from the strength of the story.

If you've liked my other books, such as, FOR TONIGHT or LOVE & ROSES, you will like this line of books as well. Visit, www.AGRomance.com and bookmark the page. Also, follow me at Amazon to learn of new releases.

Again, my books under my real name will not disappear, and I will keep writing stories that I wish to release as usual. But for those that are specifically contemporary romance and do not have a particular Christian leaning, you will see them as Alex Greenville.

His Loss. Our Gain.

What has God ever done for me?

That is, in itself, a selfish question. It focuses on “me”, what I lack, what I want that hasn’t been provided. It takes away from the greatness of Jehovah Jireh, the God who’s more than enough, removing any thought that He’ll come through on time. Laced with doubt and disbelief, such a question distrusts the very Hand that longs to answer it.

It’s not a prayer, but a complaint meant to put God in His place. Suddenly we’re better than God. We can handle it ourselves.

God’s love, on the other hand, is solely focused on “you”. It isn’t our heavenly Father wrapped up in Himself, waiting for His wayward creation to finally speak words of praise.

“Don’t they know I’m up here …?” with His toe tapping.




No, when God shed his love upon mankind, there was no “me” involved. He didn’t think of Himself and what He’d get out of it, but what Jesus’ sacrificial act would do for me. For you. For the world.

He gave all. Every. Leaving nothing out. He didn’t reserve half the cross for another day or choose to delay His salvation for some of us until He’d decided who was worth dying for. For that matter, the event didn’t sneak up on Him. He didn’t realize … “Oh, wait, looks like Jesus might have die. Rats.”

He knew that way in advance, and He did it anyway. Without thought to His loss, but every thought to our gain.

Therefore, the question we must ask in our time of need, what we should seek when the chips are down and things aren’t going are way, isn’t, “What has God done for me?” But, what has God done for you?

Because, like Job, who was healed when he prayed for his friends, when we get our eyes off of what we expect, how bad our circumstances are, our checkbooks, our health, our kids, when we think of others instead, that’s when we receive our greatest blessing. (Job 42:10)

That’s when we become the most like Christ.

And it’s strange because in that moment what looked so big won’t be so bad any more, against the size of a God capable and willing to put us first.

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? … But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Mt 6:31,33)
