Endorser Spotlight: Carrie Schmidt

Endorser Spotlight: Carrie Schmidt

One of the most nerve-racking parts of being an author is sending your book out into the world for the first time, knowing you can no longer change a single word of your book. Thankfully, the first people to read my novel outside of my critique partners and the Kregel team are endorsers. I am so honored and encouraged by the ladies who read my book and then wrote up beautiful endorsements. For the next few months, I’m going to feature one endorser every couple of weeks. So settle in, hear what they have to say about Counterfeit Love, and then learn about who they are, the books they’ve written, and how you can connect with them. Maybe you will be blessed to discover a new author . . . or in today’s case, a book blogger.

At the end, I’d be blessed if you would leave an encouraging note for this author who has encouraged me so much!

I am pleased to introduce you to . . .

Carrie Schmidt

aka Meez Carrie

Carrie is the author of the Reading is my Super Power blog. She is also an avid reader, book reviewer, story addict, KissingBooks fan, book boyfriend collector, cool aunt, and a little bit Yankee & a little bit y’all. She loves Jesus and THE Story a whole lot.

Connect with Carrie:


What she had to say about Counterfeit Love:

“With swoony romance, intriguing history, gripping plot twists, and strong characters, Counterfeit Love is one of the strongest debut novels I’ve ever read! Caudill’s writing voice is pitch-perfect and draws readers immediately into the heart of the story, holding them in thrall until the end. And did I mention the swoony romance?? I couldn’t put it down, and I am already eagerly waiting for the next book!”

Y’all, I continue to be knocked speechless. Carrie reads HUNDREDS of books a year. Her words have just blown me away and made me “squeally” all at the same time. Who knew I wrote swoony romance? I blame it all on my husband. Thank you, Carrie! (And I’m shamelessly putting the link to Counterfeit Love here if you would like to learn more or preorder it.)


Reading is My Super Power

Reading is My Super Power is one of my absolute favorite book blogs. From Top Ten Tuesdays, honest book reviews, book spotlights, author Q&A’s, excerpts, First Line Fridays, and easy to find giveaways, I can always leave Carrie’s blog with a new pile of books to add to my TBR. She even has a Facebook group where daily suggestions and reviews come up from other members of the group. It’s a great place to hang and really enjoy the world of Christian fiction. 

I’ve stolen some from Carrie’s about page to help you get an idea of what an amazing place her blog is.

What can you expect from this blog?

Books reviewed honestly and from the heart, written out of my love for stories and my knowledge of what makes good fiction. Interviews with some of my favorite authors. Giveaways of some of my favorite books. Top Ten Tuesdays. Gushing over my latest book boyfriends. (Sorry, oh-so-tolerant hubby!)

The highlight of blogging for me is when I am able to introduce you to your next favorite read or a new-to-you author!

What kind of books do you review?

My passion is Christian fiction, but I have a handful of go-to authors in the general market as well. I love to laugh. I love books that touch my heart too. I read both historical and contemporary fiction, and I’m always on the outlook for another great kissingbook! If it’s got suspense, all the better. You won’t find much science fiction/fantasy here, other than fairy tales and the occasional nod to Narnia or Harry Potter, though I’m starting to find many more books that I love in this speculative genre. No vampires or werewolves, though.

Do you ever do anything besides read?

Not willingly. 😉 Actually, in my other life, I live in Georgia with my hubby, and I’m the long-distance cool aunt to TEN-going-on-eleven nieces and nephews. When I’m not blogging here at RimSP, you can find me at SeekervilleDiversity Between the Pages, and Hoarding Books. I also used to review for RT Book Reviews.

Leave an encouraging note for Erica Vetsch in the comments. This writing journey is rough, and I’d love to bless her as much as she has blessed me.
