Sweetheart Blog Tour

The "Sweetheart Blog Tour" is on it's way. Come join eighteen (18) authors as they tell their stories about how they found true love. You can visit each author's blog, website, or contact them via e-mail to find out why they decided to participate in this project.

I decided to publish the "Sweetheart" book because I'm a hopeless romantic. While attending a New Year's Eve party, the hostess turned to me and asked, "Barbara, how did you meet your husband?" Well, by the time everyone at the party had finished telling their stories, we were all laughing to tears. Several days later, I was still laughing when I shared the story with a friend of mine and she replied, "It sounds like a good book to me." So I present to you the "How I Met My Sweetheart" anthology.

The books will be available from individual authors or any bookstore beginning February 1, 2007.

Amani Publishing January Newsletter 2007

January 2007

Happy New Year!


Welcome to the blog newsletter sponsored by Amani Publishing. A company based on faith, hope, and love. Please visit: for more information.

Never look back unless you have something to push you forward.

Here are the books that I managed to read last month:

1) Business Unusual, Linda F. Beed
Genre: Christian fiction
Rating: 4
Business Unusual delves into the complex world of the Lewis family, their close friends, and less than genuine associates.

2) If the Shoe Fits, Marilynn Griffith
Genre: Christian fiction
Rating: 5
If the Shoe Fits is the befitting sequel to “Made of Honor.” This time she takes on the romantic life of a shoe designer.
