Fiction Readers Retreat Recap

This post is a bit different in that I thought you guys might like a peek into a reader’s event and what it’s like from the author/reader perspective.

What is FRS?

On the factual level, Fiction Readers Summit is a yearly reader event held in Grand Rapids, MI. Half of our time was spent at a beautiful church event center, and the other half was spent at Baker Book House. Baker Book House is a destination bookstore y’all. It’s the biggest Christian store I think I’ve ever been in. We won’t talk about how much money I spent while there. . . but it was substantial.

Attendees got huge swag bags with lots of books and goodies. Many of those books were added to my giveaway stash, which was a huge blessing to me (and to those who participate in the reading challenge). If you’re part of my Facebook Group, I have a post going up with an album of all my pictures and a chance to win some of the swag that was given to us. (Think bookmarks, little charms, etc that fit inside a regular envelope.)

The event covered dinner and hang time on Thursday night; four author panels, games, giveaways, and lunch Friday morning; dinner on our own (but 14 of us went out together), and then selfies and signings on Friday night. On Saturday morning, we were served breakfast and socialized until everyone departed for airplanes or home.

A Family Reunion – But Everyone Likes Each Other

However, FRS is so much more than just an author/reader event. It is a family reunion–but one where everyone likes each other. Seriously, friendships are forged that last from one event to the next and beyond. I attended simply as a reader, but I had the chance to meet readers and potential new readers–not only meet them but hang out and really get to know them. So many of us were introverts that everyone understood if you had to walk away and take a break for a while.

During the author panels, there were honest and open discussions between authors and readers. Topics ranged from what readers want to see more of in fiction–the grittier side of life, postpartum depression, etc–to how authors of different colors and ethnicities can make their stories more appealing. The answer to that last one was really, actually a beautiful discussion. The universal answer is the culture, background, and voice of others should not be diminished in order to “better appeal” to others. We want to learn and experience other viewpoints, not have them changed to meet what are perceived expectations. It was a safe place to talk where authors and readers met on mutual ground to talk about the hardships and desires of the reading/writing world.

At “Selfies and Signings,” it wasn’t just lines of people getting signatures and selfies. There were discussions, mingling, and hanging out until Baker Book House literally turned out the lights on us to tell us all it was time to go home. . . and then we still hung out a little longer.

A huge number of us were in the same hotel and we hung out in the hotel lobby until almost midnight. I also cemented my place as an official tea lady/snob. I brought down a selection of about 14 tea flavors (most loose leaf teas) and my own hot water kettle. If you are a tea snob, you know there is nothing worse than the hot water that comes out of containers that once held coffee. It flavors the water and is terrible. Yes, it’s totally a first-world problem, but I like non-coffee water for my tea. It really was just a time of fellowship and family.

Meet the Authors

There were a ton of authors who showed up officially and unofficially. I missed some authors during the selfies. From left to right, top to bottom:

Tosca Lee, Bethany Turner, Carmen Schober, Dani Pettry, Susie Finkbeiner, Tammy Renich, Amanda Dyke, Carrie Turansky, Kimberly Duffy, Jennifer Wright, Jamie Jo Wright, Stephenia McGee, Amanda Cox, Erica Vetsch, Janyre Tromp, and Gabrielle Meyer.

Selfies I missed: Lynn Austin, Denise Hunter, Katie Powner (HOW did I miss her? We talked for like 30 minutes!!!), Patricia Raybon, and I heard Jennifer Delamere was there too.

One of the panel questions was ask the author a question. So what question would you ask of any of these authors.

This Is My Story – Tara Johnson’s Podcast

This Is My Story – Tara Johnson’s Podcast

Introducing the Historical Bookwork Podcast

Introducing the Historical Bookwork Podcast

So I have a confession to make. I don’t have a book review for you this week. I just turned in my first ever edits on Sunday and I devoted every spare moment of the last month working on those. My brain is too kaput to write a review of a book I read last year but never got around to writing about. However, I want to stick to my commitment to give you reading-related material that you might like. My friend and critique partner, KyLee Woodley, released her first episode of a podcast just for fans of Christian historical fiction. Check it out below, give it a listen, and then let me know what you think! Sarah Sundin is her and Kendy’s first interview guest.

Let me know if you guys listen to it and what you think! If you’re into podcasts, I know of several historical fiction related ones that I can direct you to. If YOU know of Christian Fiction podcasts to recommend, share them here as well. Next week I hope to have my interview up with Jennifer Diebel and then the last day of February will have my review of this month’s reading challenge book, The Patriot Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse. I’m starting that tonight. 🙂 

Meet the Christian Fiction Class of 2021

Meet the Christian Fiction Class of 2021

*For those participating in the 2021 reading challenge, I have created a Facebook Group for those who want to interact throughout the month. For those who wish to receive a bookmark as a reminder of the themes, fill out this Google Form.*




2021 is bound to be a better year than 2020. At least that is what I am declaring! To start the year off right, I thought it would be neat to introduce you to some of the newest authors on the Christian Fiction scene. This year, ten authors I have had the honor to meet will debut their novels to the world. I have broken down the graduating class into the months they will break into the world. Support these new authors by connecting with them online, checking out their books, and if the books interest you, pre-order your copy or request your library to purchase a copy. Preorders go a long way to help an author have a successful book launch. It takes a lot of work to get a book out there, and I’m excited to help them get the word out.


Just as an incentive to help these authors out, I’m offering a $25 Baker Bookhouse gift card giveaway. Each author has chosen one link they want promoted most. Pick which ones you’d like to help out, and earn an entry for each one. To participate, click here

Roots of Wood and Stone

Genre: Split-time Women’s Fiction


This historic home holds the keys to their destiny . . . and their hearts

Abandoned at birth, her family roots a mystery, historical museum curator Sloane Kelley has dedicated her life to making sure others know theirs. When a donor drops off a dusty old satchel, she doesn’t expect much from the common artifact . . .until she finds real treasure inside: a nineteenth-century diary. Now she’s on the hunt to find out more.

Garrett Anderson just wanted to clean out his grandmother’s historic but tumbledown farmhouse before selling it to fund her medical care. With her advancing Alzheimer’s, he can’t afford to be sentimental about the family home. But his carefully ordered plan runs up against two formidable obstacles: Sloane, who’s fallen in love with both the diaries and the house, and his own heart, which is irresistibly drawn to Sloane.

A century and a half earlier, motherless Annabelle Collins embarks with her aunt and uncle on the adventure of a lifetime: settling the prairies of Sedgwick County, Kansas. The diaries she left behind paint a portrait of life, loss, and love–and a God who faithfully carries her through it all. Paging through the diaries together takes Sloane and Garrett on a journey they never could have planned, which will change them in ways they never imagined.

This warm, beautifully written split-time novel will resonate with readers looking for stories that reveal the beauty of God’s plan for our lives, and how our actions ripple for generations.

Tale of the Clans Book 1: Rise of Betrayal


One brash act forced her to flee her clan. Now, after years in hiding, she risks exposure to the man whose brother is dead because of her. 


Ireland, 962 AD

Forced into a betrothal with the son of her warmongering overlord, Nessa knows her impending marriage will thrust her family into the heart of their clan’s longstanding feud with the Danes of Luimnech. Her fate is sealed until tragedy presses her to make a desperate escape—one which leads to her betrothed’s death.

Sanctuary among distant kindred proves short-lived and Nessa falls into the schemes of her rescuers. With the balance of power shifting in southern Ireland, her knowledge could pave the way for her former chieftain to claim the provincial throne. Yet, offering that knowledge may expose her identity to her estranged clansmen—and to the man whose brother was slain because of her.

Gideon mac Davan yearns to prove himself a warrior worthy of the Dal Cais. But he never dreamed his aspirations to join Brian mac Cennedigh’s rebel band would unfold after his brother’s murder. Conflicted between vengeance and the secret he conceals, Gideon must trod a contrary path. One which may end in the collapse of all he once revered.

When Tiago finds himself caught up in small town shenanigans and the town blames Ronnie for tragedy, Peter is forced to pick sides. But will his choice cost him the home—and the woman—he loves?

Molly Chase

Genre: Historical romance with elements of family drama and political suspense


Certain things ruin a girl’s reputation, and madness is one.

BOSTON, 1793—Beautiful and artistic, the only daughter of a prominent merchant, Molly Chase cannot help but attract the notice of Federalist Boston—especially its men. But she carries a painful secret: her father committed suicide and she found his body. Now nightmares plague her day and night, addling her mind and rendering her senseless. Molly needs a home, a nurse, and time to grieve and to find new purpose in life. But when she moves in with her friends, the Robbs, spiteful society gossips assume the worst. And when an imprudent decision leads to public scandal, Molly is tempted to take the easy way out: a marriage of convenience.

Merchant sailor Josiah Robb is as familiar to Molly as a brother—as dear and as exasperating. Yet she is no sister to him. He hopes to marry her before anyone else does, but sailing the high seas leaves no time for convincing Molly that he is more than her teasing childhood friend. Josiah wants a new job and a fresh start, and when he agrees to carry a confidential letter to President Washington, his life is changed forever.

In the wake of tragedy, these longtime friends discover a new intimacy. But slander, confusion, absence, and a wealthy, conniving bully stand between them. And with French spies on the loose, they not only have to rescue their reputations—they have to protect their lives.

I Need Your Feedback

I Need Your Feedback

Hi faithful readers!

I’m considering doing an every-other-month book club via my website and Facebook author page. Is this something you would be interested in?

I’ve always wanted to be part of a book club, but I’ve never had the joy of having local readers with similar tastes. I thought it would be great to get together with others who like reading Christian Historical Romance (like you!) and have our own online book club. I’m still trying to sort the idea out, but before I put too much effort into it, I wanted to have your feedback.


My current thought is to vote on a Christian Historical Romance novel, pick a day where we come together via Zoom (or just posts online) to discuss the book, play a game or two, and participate in a giveaway. I’d send discussion questions ahead of time because if you are like me, you need time to think and process. It would be an event you sign up for ahead of time and wouldn’t necessarily have to participate every time.

If I did it, I think the schedule would be January, March, May, July, September, and early November (to avoid holiday hassles).


The first one would be pretty short notice for this July, but the book options I’m thinking are:


  1. The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch – Regency
  2. A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White – WWI
  3. Veiled in Smoke by Jocelyn Green – The Great Chicago Fire


If this is something you are interested in, please comment below. Let me know what book would be your top choice and any suggestions you might have.
