Numb-Front-Cover-Smaller-194x300Greetings All, No, we do not have a tour coming up next week.

Greetings CSFF’ers,

As you may remember, last note, I asked you to consider voting in the Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative fiction. You are, after all, perhaps the most qualified group to do so. Unfortunately, we ran into a glitch. After hearing from a number of people about a problem voting, we discovered that not all votes were being counted. Consequently, we’d like to encourage you to re-vote. I’m sorry for the inconvenience and time-waste the first vote turned out to be.

Here are the necessary links again: the list of nominations (you must have read at least two of these to be eligible to vote) – http://clivestaplesaward.wordpress.com/clive-staples-award-nominations/2014-nominations/ and the voting instructions and survey – http://clivestaplesaward.wordpress.com/2014/03/24/csa-finalist-voting-begins-today/

If you can also pass the word along to those you know who may have voted the first time (or who should have – ;-) I’d be ever so grateful! You’re a great bunch. I appreciate your support.

Becky

Again, Happy St. Patrick’s Day, CSFF’ers.

Monday not only begins a new tour but it is the first day to vote for the finalists in the Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative Fiction. Because a number of titles we have toured appear on the list, I can’t think of a more qualified group to participate in this process than you. Please take time to review the list of nominations. If you have read at least two books on the list, you are eligible to vote. Look for details at the CSA site: http://clivestaplesaward.wordpress.com/

Tour Details. Our tour for A Draw of Kings begins tomorrow and runs through Wednesday. For those of you who received review copies of the books, please remember to include a disclaimer such as the following: In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

Special thanks to those of you who post your review in multiple places. Don’t forget you can also share your review at the Speculative Faith’s library — http://www.speculativefaith.com/submit-a-novel-review .

Lastly, I appreciate the extra effort a number of you are making to visit at least five other blogs during the tour. Please keep up the community building. All CSFF members benefit in the long run, as do the authors of the books we feature.

March Tour Links. The links you’ll need this month are as follows:

Happy Valentine’s Day, Almost,

For our February tour, we’re featuring yet another of our CSFF members—Donita Paul—and the first in her Realm Walkers series, One Realm Beyond. We’ll begin the tour on Monday, February 17 and run it through Wednesday, February 19. I don’t know about you, but I am loving this new universe and the varied characters Donita has created. Once again I’m captivated by one particular character who is so unique and fun. But I’ll save all that for the tour!

Hi, All,

Hope you’re managing to stay warm this winter. Those of us on the West Coast have no problem with that, but it sounds like much of the rest of the country is dealing with quite a cold spell. I wish we could pass along some of our sunshine.

CSFF Top Tour Blogger. Congratulations to our January tour Top Blogger Award winner Julie Bihn for her posts about Outcasts. You can read her articles at http://kinynchronicles.blogspot.com/ .

Book Offers. We’re offering TWO books today: one for March and one for April. Please review the details of each, then respond with the required information: your namemailing address (no post office box numbers, please), the title of the book you are requesting, andformat (see below). If you’d like a copy of each, you may replace the titles with “Both,” but be sure to include the required format. I’ll need to hear from you no later than Monday, 9:00 AM (Pacific time).

April Offer

Long time CSFF member John Otte has published his second novel with Marcher Lord Press, an adult science fiction entitledNumb. Here’s a peek at the story:

 



Save the girl…or his soul?

Crusader is numb. He feels neither emotion nor pain, a divine gift that allows him to be the Ministrix’s best assassin. Whether it’s heretics from within or heathen from without, Crusader is the sword in the True Church’s hand. And if he remains obedient to his superiors, he will be able to let go of his guilt.

But then he’s ordered to kill Isolda Westin. It shouldn’t be a problem. A target is a target. When Crusader sees Isolda’s image, though, something strange happens. He experiences a moment of panic, a wave of emotions, the first he’s felt in as long as he can remember.

In that moment, he realizes he can’t fulfill his mission. He can’t kill Isolda Westin, even if it means he’ll be condemned as an enemy of the Ministrix.

Soon Crusader and Isolda are on the run. Will they be able to learn why the Ministrix wants Isolda dead? Or will they both face the harsh justice of the “True Church”?

Note: only 15 print copies available (I assume this is US or Canada); unlimited number for Nook or Kindle editions. Be sure to specify the format.

 

March Offer

A Draw of Kings by Patrick Carr
Book 3 of The Staff and the Sword series
Adult epic fantasy

 


 

Dark Forces Have Gathered and the Final Battle for Illustra Has Begun

Their journey to Merakh should have made Errol and his companions heroes of the realm. Instead, they’ve been branded enemies of the kingdom.

In the wake of the king’s death, Duke Weir is ruling the country–and he intends to marry Adora to bring an heir from the royal line. With Errol and the others imprisoned and the identity of the rightful heir to the throne still hidden in secrecy, Illustra is on the verge of civil war–and threatened by hostile forces gathering on every side.

A dangerous mission to free Errol is attempted, but the dangers facing the kingdom mount with every passing moment. The barrier has fallen, ferrals are swarming toward the land, and their enemies draw ever closer. Will the discovery of the true heir turn back the tide of Illustra’s destruction?

 

Unlimited print editions for US or Canadian residents. NetGalley e-copies of the book also available. Be sure to specify the format.

If you request a review copy of either book, please remember you are committed to posting during that tour, though you must still opt in if necessary.

Looking forward to your requests for review copies with your namemailing address (no post office box numbers, please), the title of the book you are requesting (or “both” if you wish each book), and format.

Becky
