Queen of the Waves by Janice Thompson {Review Refresh}

*This post is updated with my new format. Original posted in 2013. Be it contemporary Texas or historical atmosphere Janice’s books are witty. Full of entertainment through out the characters are lovable and stick with a reader. The seemingly perfect women on the page bear all with their thoughts and many a reader may find a relevant heart. Janice’s stories would all make great movies full of calm and wonderfully appropriate romance. I think those in the Club Wed scene would get along well with Rachel Hauck’s low country Carolina series characters.

Coming Soon from the Pen, Please Welcome Historical Author Tricia Goyer!

What made you interested in writing Christian Historical Fiction? Do you write any other genres? I had never intended to write historical fiction. When I first started writing I wrote contemporary romance. I thought historical fiction would be too much work–now the research is one of my favorite parts! I do write contemporary fiction, too–mostly Amish and novels with family themes. I also write articles and non-fiction. Pretty much if I come up with an idea I want to write about it! Are there any other Christian Historical Fiction authors that you think your readers would enjoy? Oh yes. I love books by Francine Rivers, Tamera Alexander, Robin Lee Hatcher, Sarah Sundin, Cara Putman, and Susan May Warren. I’ve also had many people compare my books to those written by Brock and Bodie Thoene. This is an honor for me since I feel in love with their historical novels first!. . .

In view of the disconnect that he sees between the 45 percent in America who claim to be born-again Christian or evangelicals and their lives, Charles Crismier shares biblical secrets on the neglected topic of the fear of the Lord. Using the sinking of the Titanic as a metaphor for the current spiritual condition of Americans, Crismier says the fear of the Lord is “the greatest and most significant key to avoid personal and collective shipwreck.” Known as a voice to the church and defender of the faith, Crismier is a pastor and founder and president of Save America and talk show host of “Viewpoint,” a daily issues-oriented radio broadcast, since 1995.
