Blood and Judgment

I’ll say this. Once I start reading Lutheran author Lars Walker, it’s hard to stop! But I did take a break from his Erling Skalgsson series. (Mostly because I need to look up the order again.) Today’s post is from his more stand alone-ish series, The Epson books, in which sequence of books isn’t especially important. (I’ll link to reviews of some of those books below.) Now, I’ll review Blood and Judgment below. 🙂

Misc.

I’ve been reading Post-Christian obsessively and then, today, all of a sudden I couldn’t find it! I hate it when that happens! And when I say obsessively, I mean it. I actually started the book over again, from the very beginning, so I could take more thorough notes! (I’m thinking about putting together a study guide for it—would that be crazy?) Anyway, so in lieu of writing time today, at least I finally discovered it! 🙂 And with a light dusting of snow descending on my small Oklahoma town, I’ll bid you goodnight without a more significant post for the morrow.

I will, however, offer you a link to a neat little article on music and  how long it takes for music to help you to relax or feel happier. 🙂

Happy reading & writing!

A Valentine’s Day to Remember

Last December I was excited to share a Lutheran author I’d found: Aretta Gordish. You can read that post here. Well, today I’m doubly happy to report that just at the end of January, she published another novel in her Our Life in Snowflake Falls series. 🙂 Not only that, but A Valentine’s Day to Rememberthat same new release, is temporarily free for Kindle!
