Here we are again for Featured Books Friday! I was at the fabulous Storymakers conference last weekend, so I will try to get some of the attendees to post here. 🙂 I love reading through the book blurbs in the comment section. I encourage you to do the same and support these talented authors. You can also scroll through old posts for even more amazing books and authors.
Below, in the comments, you are welcome to add your name, title, and genre – along with a 500 word scene or blurb. (Please no erotica or extreme violence) I will blast and share away.
Thanks for playing!!

Feel the forest floor sink between toes
Discover caves where nobody knows
So kick off the shoes that weigh you down
Find a place where no one’s around
