Pardon the absence & CONGRATS Genesis finalists!

Have you been missing the Free Book Fridays and Prompts on Tuesdays? We were hit by the Midwest inland hurricane which knocked out our power for over a week and left us without Internet service. Went to a family member's house to be able to post.

Once everything is restored, we'll get back to our regular programming. :-)

The only blog posts that have gone up were posts I prescheduled. I'm SO glad Blogger has that feature!

Anyway, I'd also like to take this opportunity to congratulate ACFW's (American Christian Fiction Writer's) Genesis finalists!
