Goddess Fish Promotions VBT: Weddings at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard

Goddess Fish Promotions VBT: Weddings at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard

Excerpt When Rosetta sat down at the eck table beside Truman, the light in his eyes made her hold her breath. “Honey-girl, if your new bishop allows us to marry, when do you want to tie the knot?” he murmured as he grasped her hand. “I fell head-over- heels for you the moment I met you last summer, making dinner in that big kitchen—” “Jah, the way to a man’s heart has always been through his stomach,” Rosetta teased. Her heart was hammering in her chest, and she suddenly felt like a tongue-tied teenager. It still surprised her, the way Truman made over her and waxed so romantic, considering he was somewhat younger than she was. Truman smiled. “I have no fears of going hungry after we marry,” he murmured, rubbing his thumb over her hand. “But my clock’s ticking. I’m thirty and I want a family—and I can’t wait to watch you grow big with our children, Rosetta.” Rosetta held her breath. She, too, had dreamed of mothering a large family, but the years after losing her first fiancé and then caring for her aging parents had slipped by. Even though God granted children to women who were older… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions Guest Post: Seven Days To Goodbye & Starting Over by Sheri S. Levy

Goddess Fish Promotions Guest Post: Seven Days To Goodbye & Starting Over by Sheri S. Levy

Excerpt Sydney climbed on my lap and licked the corners of my eyes. I buried my face in his soft fur and scratched under his chin. He leaned into my hand as I whispered, “We’ll have fun with or without Sarah. We just have to.” Staring through the side window, a deep-blue summer sky flickered between pine trees covered in kudzu. Sarah’s car passed on the right. I turned the other way. Off the freeway, we headed east and then south down a two lane road through sleepy little towns one after the other. Twenty minutes later, I leaned forward between the front seats, “Wow. Look.” Branches from gigantic live oak trees slanted towards the middle of the street. The trees looked as though they were trying to touch each other and some did. They reminded me of my cozy canopy bed where Sarah and I had spent many nights, giggling and whispering. But this canopy was made of tree limbs in different shades of green, dripping with grayish, Spanish moss. The moss hung like ghostly long arms swinging in the wind. “This is kind of spooky beautiful. It’s like being in a green tunnel.” I cracked my window. A… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions VBB: The Power of Prayer by Lorana Hoopes

Goddess Fish Promotions VBB: The Power of Prayer by Lorana Hoopes

Excerpt: What does he mean he can’t marry me? This had to be some kind of joke. My shoulders slumped forward and my knuckles holding the phone turned white. “That’s it? That’s all? What does this mean? What am I supposed to tell everyone out there?” There were nearly two hundred people waiting in the sanctuary. Shaina lowered her head, unable to meet my eyes and bit her lip again. My eyes narrowed to slits as I crossed the room and grabbed Shaina’s arm, eliciting a yelp of either surprise or pain. I didn’t know which, and at that moment, I didn’t care. “What aren’t you telling me?” Her eyes narrowed to slits. “There’s someone else, isn’t there? Who is it? If you know Shaina, you have to tell me.” When Shaina lifted her head, tears glistened in her eyes. “I’m so sorry, Callie.” I dropped my arm and stared at Shaina. My mouth hung open like a barn door as I tried to understand what she was saying. She’s sorry? What does she have to be sorry for? It’s not like her fiancé left her. It’s not like—Anger flared up in me as the realization set in. The world… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions VBT + Interview: Lake Of Sins: Hangman’s Army by L. S. O’Dea

Excerpt: Hugh Trinity didn’t reply, but her back was straighter than before.  He was getting on her nerves.  Good because she sure got on his.  She was nothing but trouble, an attractive know-it-all who refused to listen to anyone.  His hand met the end of the rope.  It was still a long way to the ground.   Jackson waited alongside the building with Tim.  They were both flat against the wall, trying not to be seen.   “Drop.  You’ll be fine.”  Her voice was soft, no longer acidic and mocking. He couldn’t deal with her being kind to him.  They’d done so well bickering.  The trip had been fast and he hadn’t thought much about the danger.  “I’m an Almighty.  My kind doesn’t always land on their feet.”   “Let go,” she said, a hint of anger in her voice. “I will.”  His hands tightened on the rope.  A fall like this could break something.   “Now,” she snapped.  “Or I’ll kick you in the face and say a prayer that you land on your head.” Her foot waved above his head.  He wouldn’t put it past her to do what she threatened.  She’d probably enjoy it.  He closed his… Read more »

Goddess Fish Promotions VBB Review + Scavenger Hunt: A Mother’s Love by Charlotte Hubbard

EXCERPT “I want three chickie legs and a big ole bunch of taters,” Gracie announced as she pointed to the food in the steam table. “Lotsa gravy, too—right, Matthias? Do you like lotsa gravy on your taters?” “That looks like awesome gravy.” Matthias smiled at the women who were filling his plate. “If I could have some on my chicken as well as my taters,” he said, winking at Gracie, “that would be wonderful. Denki, ladies. This is a fabulous meal.” As Rose gazed around the crowded greenhouse, looking for three empty chairs, she was very aware that folks were watching her—whispering about the man who followed her between the tables, carrying Gracie as though she were his. Rose wanted to announce, loud and clear, that Matthias Wagler was only here for the food. But they’ll know that’s not true. Just like you do. Rose’s cheeks tingled with heat. She hurried toward the last unoccupied table in the back corner of the big glassed-in room, not meeting anyone’s gaze. Settling into a folding chair, Rose sighed heavily as she gazed at the plate she’d filled. Why had she taken so much food when she had no appetite? Why had her… Read more »
