Here’s some bookish news I’m so thankful for and excited to share with you! Together with my publisher Write Integrity Press, I’m proud to present the official cover for The Reactionary, the final book in The Rogues trilogy, scheduled to release February 19, 2019. Click here to learn more about this thrilling conclusion to Portia’s story.

Rock star graphic artist Kelli Sorg has faithfully worked with me on all three covers for this series, and I’m so happy with the how they turned out! The minimalism, symbolism, and striking colors were exactly what I had in mind. I hope you love them as much (or nearly as much) as I do!

Thankful for Finish Lines

Thanksgiving is a few short days away! Many people are talking about what they’re thankful for, and today, I’m adding a new item to my gratitude list: finish lines.

Last weekend, I ran my first half marathon. Thank you for letting me share about this journey with you here! Today, I just want to leave you with a few pictures and a simple challenge.

At the start line of the St. Pete Run Fest

I ran the half marathon with 689 other runners.

These sweet friends ran with me most of the race.

Ecclesiastes 7:8a says, “The end of a thing is better than its beginning” (NKJV).  This verse is a favorite for students at the end of a school year, but it also applies to many other aspects of life – half marathons or otherwise.

However, no matter how great finish lines are, they are no place for us to stay long. Instead, they demand us to begin once again and challenge us to move forward to new goals with determination and humility.

What are you thankful for this year? Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving!
