Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

One of the neatest things this year has been the conception of the Christian Historical Fiction Community! now lovingly found at www.ChristianHistoricalFiction.com How exciting! This was something I worked on from my heart. True it is not very active, but it is not meant to just provide things from me. This is meant to be a place to have readers and authors sharing and finding some great things in the newest about Christian Historical Fiction so you always having something to read and something else to thirst for! If you are interested in participating in any way, just ask! This past year I hosted the Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge and although a little confusing to start on a blogspot, move to a ning and then www.ChristianHistoricalFiction.com (aka chf.creativemadnessmama.com) it’s here and we had a pretty good turn out on participation. In the future if we have more people interested,. . .
