It's been a while since I participated in a blog hop, but as always, many thanks to Kathy at "I'm A Reader, Not A Writer," and this hop's co-sponsor, ANWA, or The American Night Writers Association, for sponsoring this hop.

The LDS Author's Hop is a relatively new one, but LDS authors, authors who also belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are producing novels with a punch that rivals national titles, while maintaining a commitment to keep their titles clean and family safe.

For those unfamiliar with The American Night Writers Association, ANWA is a peer network for women who belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and who are interested in writing. I am one of several hundred LDS writers, and aspiring LDS writers, who belong. ANWA's purpose is to encourage, assist, educate, and motivate members to write, and, if they desire, to publish their works.

It's a delight to celebrate the wonderful books LDS authors are producing. If you aren't sure whether or not you know any LDS authors, check out Kathy's link above and see a partial list of successful, LDS novelists.

As for me, I'm editing my eighth novel, a tender drama titled, "The Dragons of Alsace Farm." You can click on the link to view a trailer for it.

But this week I'm actually relaunching "Awakening Avery," a personal favorite of mine. "AA" was launched in the middle of marketing "Free Men and Dreamers," and I never had the time to get a trailer made for it. But this week, the new trailer was sent to me, and in celebration of its release, I'm offering a new, autographed copy of "Awakening Avery," and two other gently-read LDS titles I've  enjoyed.
