You Make a Difference!


Sometimes you meet yourself between the covers of a book. Sometimes you even catch a glimpse of God in the pages. Sometimes you love a book so much you wish all your friends would read it just so you can talk about it.

But maybe the book's not on the NY Times Bestseller list, your library doesn't carry it, and you bought the last copy at your local bookstore. How can you help friends find the book?

The great folks at Bethany House have put together a page of ideas to help you support your favorite books.

Check it out, and let me know if you try some of these ideas and how it feels to let your voice be heard!

Blessings and gratitude!

Hi, guys!
Thank you all for spreading the word about books you love. With the culture and technology changing so rapidly, there are a zillion new ways to explore getting the word out about books.

But authors need to save some time to actually WRITE books. :-)

(At least I do. Some of my author friends seem to be able to do it all - and do it all beautifully. They crank out amazing stories, and keep up with every forum, and site, and blogs, etc.)

Anyway, I'm super grateful to readers who take the time to create buzz.
