Book Release News!

Good morning friends. This week is release week for the latest in my Mountain Cove series–BACKFIRE. Book 3 is another Warren sibling’s story and set against the backdrop of beautiful southeast Alaska.backfire cover

Back Cover copy:


Tracy Murray had thought she’d be safe disappearing in the wilds of Alaska after her testimony put away a gang leader. But the gang symbol tattooed on an attacker’s arm means the clock has run out. She’s been found—and she knows the killers won’t let her escape alive again. She can’t fight an entire gang alone—she needs help. But when she finds herself relying on widowed firefighter David Warren, a new struggle emerges. Fleeing Alaska and cutting all ties could be the only way to survive…but it would mean leaving her heart behind.

Do Not Worry, Part 2: Eagles

On my last post, DO NOT WORRY,  I shared that when I wake up in the morning I dread the day, and that I’ve made a conscious effort and have chosen to celebrate the day, and give God the glory. I’m happy to report that my days have improved as long as I choose to “think on these things,” and have a grateful heart. That, instead of letting all the burdens of life weigh me down.


I’m a pastor’s wife, writer and home schooling three boys, which means I simply have too much to do. But isn’t it that way for most modern women? We want to do it all. Everyone expects us to do it all, or at least try. So I have my fingers in too many pies and I’m trying to eat them all. No wonder I’m overweight! Sorry for the bad joke. I’m leaving it in the post though to keep things transparent. Ha!


Today I’m taking my previous post deeper. I had a dream the other night. In the dream, there were eagles everywhere on the walls. Carvings and paintings and mosaics, you name it. I thought nothing more about the dream or the eagles until the next day when I saw a bald eagle on Facebook then the dream came rushing back at me in full detail. Has that ever happened to you?



Bald Eagle soaring high above the Mississippi River

And I knew there was something about those eagles.


I tromped down the stairs to the office and booted up the old clunker desktop. This detail is important because on the way down the steps, I started humming that old song, “They that wait upon the Lord. . .” You know the one. It’s basically the Bible verse about eagles.



But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 



Over the years, I’ve heard many teachings about this verse, but decided to do some research on my own as a reminder and possibly  find a new truth or a new spiritual nugget.  I read about how eagles have heavy wings and how they patiently wait for the thermal that they can ride so they can conserve their energy, and soar even higher.


They don’t have to use their own energy.  They simply spread their wings and ride the wind.


And I realized, that’s what God wants from me—to wait for that thermal. To wait for Him so I, too, can spread my wings and ride the thermal. So I can soar even higher than  is possible on my own.


I’ve taken on so much, in fact, more than He ever would have wanted from me. It’s all in my own power and strength, and not in His power and strength. Sure, we have to work hard, but there is a better way that doesn’t require striving.


I admit, I’m still trying to let go of the burdens, and I’m still trying to figure out how to “wait” on Him, but the realization that there is a better way. . .well, that has already shifted much of the burden from my shoulders.


Now, I’m going to wait on that thermal. Join me?

Do Not Worry

I recently moved Mississippiacross the country, well, from south to north. It was a huge move. Think hot and now cold. This time last year I lived in Louisiana, where the Mississippi River empties into the Gulf, and now I live where the river freezes over, at least the top layers. But hey, I’m loving it! Except the move created a lot of additional work in my life on top of everything else I have going on, which frankly might be too much. After all, I home school three boys and I write books. Writing books means a lot more than you might think—writing a book is a huge endeavor all on its own. But these days, there’s more, so much more to be done.
With the shift to digital age, authors have to do much more than simply write their book—they have to blog in multiple places, and Twitter and Facebook and Instagram and the list just keeps going. Where in the world does a person find time to write a book? Much less live life.

 Take time to smell the roses or maybe play a game of Scrabble.

Hence I recently found myself waking up every morning and dreading the day. Have you ever done that? If so, then read on. I’ve decided this has everything to do with having too much to do and failing at everything. I’m afraid to face the day. Fear has resulted in dread. I’ve been so overwhelmed I’m starting to have panic attacks. Because I’m a driven person, I heap even more on my plate—my goals and thing I’d like to accomplish.

 More, more, give me more.

I keep thinking this isn’t the life Jesus wanted me to live. Too much busyness isn’t what Jesus wanted for us, is it? When you think about it, He changed the world one step at a time. One person at a time.


He just walked along the path and took care of things as they came His way.


He wasn’t thinking about his long to-do list and wondering how He would ever get it done. We have a tendency to think far into the future, grabbing every potential opportunity—things we don’t want to miss—onto our plate. I think we might do this out of fear, too. We’re afraid we’ll miss something. Add to that, we worry about the future.


On that note, I have to share something I thought was profound. Did you ever see  After Earth with Will and Jaden Smith?
In the movie, Will Smith said this about fear.

“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me danger is very real but fear is a choice.”
― Will Smith

What good words!
Granted he was talking about the fear of a very real monster in the movie. But I can easily apply that to my dread of tackling my lists of tasks–facing my monsters of the day! My fear that I’ll fail.




So maybe I need to take a deep breath when I wake up in the morning and chill out. Be at peace with whatever comes my way, my to-do list. Maybe I should just live the day as it comes instead of believing everything is so urgent.


Like Jesus says, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34


Maybe instead I should wake up and think, “This is the day the Lord has made and be glad in it!” (my paraphrase of Psalm 118:24)


It’s a choice.


I invite you to do the same. Who is with me?

Merry Christmas from Christians Read!

Psalm 98:4, Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth; Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises.

What to be Thankful for this Thanksgiving by Elizabeth Goddard

goddard-LR-2 (2)For my post, I decided to write up a list of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. The posts on the topic floating around the internet must be in the thousands, I’m sure. Why not join the numbers?


But first I needed to do my research. Research, you ask, on things for which I should be thankful? The list should be easy enough to write, and while my list will be similar to everyone’s list, it will also be unique for me.
Still I wanted to read articles listing, in general, things for which we should be thankful on Thanksgiving. The articles I found were humorous and others serious, as one might expect. But most lists were generally too broad to be all-inclusive. Lists included the usual gratefulness for the abundance of food, shelter, clothing and health. But then there was something on a list I realized that I can’t say I’m thankful for because I don’t have it.
Then I started to think about all the people who don’t have enough food. Or are living under a bridge. What about those who are not in good health? What does their list look like?
Yes, I believe we should give thanks to the Giver of all good gifts, and for all our many blessings. But creating this list made me want to dig deeper for those who are hurting this Thanksgiving. For those who might stare at an empty table—lacking food or friends and family.
Thanksgiving is about much more than giving thanks when everything is going well, or giving thanks for the good things. It’s about a change in attitude—having a thankful heart.


“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18



That’s one of those scriptures that can be tough to swallow sometimes. But if you do this, it can change your heart and change your outlook on life—through the hard times. So everything bad is happening on the outside, but on the inside, if you have a grateful heart, it will change your life in ways you can’t imagine. And then you can change the world.
But how does one get a grateful heart, a thankful heart? You can’t just conjure one if you don’t have one. The answer is simple enough. You ask the One to whom you should be thankful, to give you a thankful heart. Then you start giving thanks. Just do it. The physical first, and then the spiritual.
I came across this article that expresses what I’m saying so much more eloquently: Give Thanks in Everything
In the meantime, if you are struggling or suffering this Thanksgiving, I pray that God will bless you with great favor and most importantly, He will change your heart so that you can experience true joy even in the midst of trials and suffering.

Perspective by Elizabeth Goddard

Jackson LakeI mentioned in my previous post that this year has been filled with one battle after another. Not just for me and my family, but many others. It seems like everywhere I turn, people are struggling in every area of their lives. Of course, I’m talking closer to home here—life in America. I don’t mean to diminish for one second the kind of struggles that Christians around the world are going through because of their faith. That helps me to keep perspective, and to know that maybe things aren’t so bad. Maybe my difficulties pale in comparison. What am I saying? There’s no comparison. But neither does the knowledge that Christians are being killed for their faith make the struggles of everyday life here in this country something we can simply ignore.
In Christina fiction, as opposed to non-Christian fiction, we often read about characters whose spiritual struggle is an internal battle they wage with God. Blaming God for bad things, or trying to understand why He allows bad things in the first place (ahem. . .free will), or the struggle to trust Him completely, or let Him have control. The list goes on.
This spiritual struggle can reflect what readers are facing in their real lives, and often bring an answer they hadn’t expected. Perhaps the character’s struggle helps a reader to see that they are not alone in their battles. Perhaps the story can even bring comfort to their situation, their soul.
This is the most important purpose of Christian fiction, and the main reason I write Christian fiction—to be a ministry to others. And hopefully, this ministry of words will inspire, encourage, comfort or even convict.
That happened to me today, actually. I was convicted. I’ve been grumbling about my not-so-pleasant circumstance where instead I need to have a thankful heart. I have much to be grateful for.
I happened across a summary of a Bible story in my son’s school curriculum and it certainly put things in perspective for me. The summary talked about Daniel. How he’d been taken captive to Babylon. Lost his home and family. He was given a new name and had to speak a new language. He lived the rest of his life in Babylon.
And yet he continued to remain true to God. He didn’t wonder if God had forgotten him. Daniel trusted.
I certainly don’t have it as hard as Daniel did.
God, I pray that I always remain true to You.

The Life in Our Stories

I haven’t blogged here for a few weeks, well, maybe a few months. But life has interfered and not in small ways. My husband and I are risk-takers, and when you’re in ministry, sometimes that means moving. A lot. We’ve had a couple of moves this year and are looking at another one. I won’t bore you with the details of the struggles that went with those moves, but will tell you that on top of everything, I also had four books to write. Still have one more to finish. For those of you who haven’t written a novel, that’s a lot to write when there is nothing else going on in your life. For most of us, anyway.
Ecclesiastes 12:12 says, “Of making many books there is no end. . .”
I look at my bookshelves—all those books we’ve had to move—and I know it’s true. Take a look at Neil Gaiman’s bookshelves.

Think about it. How do we come up with stories for so many books?
Writing requires thousands of hours in a chair staring at a computer. But writing also requires engaging in life in a big way. We can’t create amazing stories if we haven’t experienced at least something, some small spark of inspiration. As writers, we’ve trained our imaginations to take even the smallest inspiration and create big stories.
So I can take all my harrowing experiences this year and spin numerous stories from them. For just one example, I have a deeper understanding of those who find themselves homeless, and what it means to truly live by faith. I know these things will show up in my stories somewhere.
I know there can be no end to writing books, that is, until God says it’s time to stop. In the meantime, I’ll keep on living and taking risks, and I’ll keep on writing.

New Release–A GRAND TETON SLEIGH RIDE by Elizabeth Goddard and Lynette Sowell

I’m pleased to announce a new release by two Christians Read authors–Elizabeth Goddard (that’s me!) and Lynette Sowell. Lynette and I have been talking about writing a story set in Jackson Hole for years and finally got something submitted last summer that was quickly picked up by our editor. My husband and I spent many anniversaries skiing at Teton Village near Jackson. We’d stay with his aunt and uncle who lived in a beautiful cabin near the entrance to Yellowstone. She was the postmaster at Moran Junction. Many summers when I was growing up,  my parents would take us to Yellowstone National Park–one of my favorite places in the world. And one of the most famous mountain ranges—a picture of the Tetons graces many a dentist and doctor’s office. Ha!AGrandTetonSleighRide

A Grant Teton Sleigh Ride is a generational (historical) novella collection. Many changes happened in our nation over this time period–electricity and automobiles, two of the biggest changes. But Jackson Hole was often isolated when the Teton Pass was well. . .unpasseable, and folks often return to their horse-drawn sleighs in the winter well into the twentieth century.

Lynette and I loved researching these stories. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them!

Wyoming’s spectacular mountains have drawn many—from trappers to ranchers to skiing enthusiasts. This Christmas, spend the holidays with the Covington family, who have called Wyoming home for generations. Rough, bristly rancher Zebulon sets his sights on eastern lady Belle Murray. Forward-thinking Emily would rather stay a dog musher than become a bride. Outfitter Sam wants to make his name in Wyoming—not say “I do.”  Hayley’s quest for her father’s approval goes sour when she takes an interest in a local ski bum. Will four festive sleigh rides rein in romance?

A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride releases September 1st in both electronic format (Kindle) and paperback, wherever books are sold. Pre-order your copy today!

Book Release Day


LoveintheWindThe day a book releases is always a fun day for authors. Sometimes we throw book launch parties near the release date or schedule book-signings or participate in blog tours and other social media venues for promotion.  Sometimes we simply let the people with whom we’ve connected in cyberspace know.

Like now.

Love in the Wind is the third and last book in my series set in New Mexico.  A sweet romance and complete departure from my usual romantic suspense, I enjoyed writing the characters and exploring the world of sailing. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it!


Now she’s counting on it to bring her closer to the biological father she’s just met. But her chances of winning the regatta—and his approval—are in jeopardy unless she can find a new crew mate. Enter Grady Stone, a perfect fit for Maddie’s crew in more ways than one.

Maddie and Grady grow close as they spend time together on the water. But Maddie, wary of emotional entanglement, guards her heart closely. And Grady’s here only to help Maddie win the race, then he’s off to a new job. The day of the race will test their ability to sail together—and the trueness of their love.




Great Escapes by Elizabeth Goddard

In previous posts, I’ve often written about reading as an escape. Years ago, I read as much nonfiction as fiction. Self-help books, mostly. But these days I’m all about writing and reading fiction. The last few weeks, several family members have been dealing with serious health issues and I feel like my family is under attack. I have never needed an escape more, and as a result I’ve read more books recently than I have in the last few years.  Some for endorsement, others for pleasure, and then there are those authors I read to learn more about writing in my genre.

I have never started a book that I didn’t finish, that is, until recently. Maybe that’s because in the past, once I checked out that library book or I bought or borrowed the book, I didn’t have easy access to hundreds of other books that were calling to me. That’s a warning to authors that you’d better draw the reader in and quickly. Now, if I’m not drawn in with the writing or the premise, I have too many other choices.

That said, here are a few of the unforgettable books I’ve read over the last few weeks.

season of changeA Season of Change by Lynette Sowell

This is an Amish story, yes, but a different kind of Amish story set in an unusually place. It’s the first Amish book I’ve read in twenty years. That’s right, I don’t usually read Amish, but this author has a way of pulling you in with not only her voice, but with her storytelling. Natalie is a circus worker looking for answers to her past in the Amish community. See what I mean?

Healer of Carthage by Lynne GentryHOCbook

Lynne Gentry is one amazing writer, her voice and writing steps above others—but she’s also created a story like no other. A time-travel—sending a doctor to the Roman past, and you can count on the research. This story was a thrilling, historical and romantic ride. Like all my favorite genres woven together.


 Stress Test by Richard Mabry

I haven’t read Mabry before, but now I plan to read all his novels. He writes medical romantic thrillers, and he knows his stuff. I love the fast-pace of his novels, and the medical details. The romance is second to the suspense plot and that’s fine by me. I look forward to his upcoming release, Critical Condition.

Thanks for taking the time to read through my recommendation for great escapes.

4 Simple Ways to Encourage Your Favorite Authors

November 1st is considered National Author’s Day, and I missed the party, if there was one, because I was working on a deadline.  November is also National Novel Writing Month. I haven’t participated in NaNoWriMo—the challenge to write a novel in a month—because I’ve been doing just that for far too long, as it is. But I look forward to hearing what amazing and creative literary works come out of this challenge.

If you’re a reader, and not a writer, I hope you understand that writing is a lonely and painful occupation. Sometimes the words flow easily and spill onto the page with little effort. Other times writing taxes the brain and no amount of pushing, prodding, or mental ripping will produce words, much less good ones. It takes mental acuity, organization, creativity and innumerable well-honed gifts to craft a novel that is then made available for all to see.

For everyone to enjoy.

For anyone to crush, which is another painful side to an author’s life.

So this month is the perfect month to celebrate writing and literature by encouraging and supporting your favorite authors.

Here are four simple things you can do:

1)      Buy their books. This is first and most important. Publishers don’t buy from authors if their books don’t sell. I think there might be too many free books floating around out there. Blog giveaways or digital downloads given in return for reviews. With the onset of the digital age and ebooks, piracy is also an issue.  Everyone wants a free book without thinking about how much time and effort was put into the process. But at the end of the day, books must be sold if an author is to continue writing.

2)      Write Reviews. I can’t express how key this is after you have bought and read a book. This has become even more important with the onset of the digital age. Reviews on sites like Amazon and Goodreads help a book’s ranking, and can help an author’s sales grow exponentially. Such a small thing, really, and it takes only a few minutes. Or if you’re a blogger, post your review on your blog too. Consider how easy it is to write and publish a review these days—an opportunity that wasn’t available years ago. Think of writing a review as a freedom and a gift and a right (am I going too far?)—a way for your voice to find an audience.

3)      Tell Someone. If you enjoyed the book, what better way to help your favorite author than to tell your friends and family about the book and the author? I always love to hear about a book that someone has enjoyed, or about a new author. I almost always investigate for myself. Become an influencer.

4)      Tell the Author. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to hear from a reader that they enjoyed my book. It always makes me smile, and I make a new friend. Let your favorite authors knows when you finish one of their books how much you enjoyed it. Making someone happy will make you happy too.

All of the above can be considered acts of kindness, though maybe not random. Think about it. When you do these things for someone else, good things are bound to come back around to you.

Many Blessings!


Small Miracles

I was thinking on what to write for my post and then, when I saw Tara’s post below, it seemed like a confirmation. I had considered the same exact verse to go along with my post. I love it when that happens! 

Here is the scripture I’m referring to: The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth muchJames 5:16

Last week, while visiting at my mom’s, my daughter’s fiance left his car keys. Since my daughter was driving, he didn’t notice until she’d taken him home nearly an hour away. We finished up dinner, then began the frantic search while she drove him back. When the search revealed nothing, we started cleaning and vacuuming—you know how it is. You find stuff you thought long gone when you do serious cleaning.

Or maybe that’s just me.

We had already prayed that the keys would show up. I always pray when I misplace something. Don’t you? But an hour later, we still hadn’t found his keys and he was due at work. When they finally arrived back at Mom’s, the search started all over again in the same places we had already looked. Behind and underneath furniture and the cushions. Shelves, counters, and even in the refrigerator. Ha! I’m guilty of putting things in the strangest of places.

But after another half hour—nothing.

We went outside and searched the grass and even look through some of the garbage to make sure the keys hadn’t been thrown out with something else. Yuck.

Finally, I tugged one of my sons aside and asked him to pray with me. You know, really pray. A serious, heartfelt prayer—and I reminded him about the fervent prayer of a righteous man.  Within five minutes my youngest son yelled that he’d spotted something.

He’d donned his spelunker cap and looked under the furniture with his light–furniture we’d already lifted up and searched. But we did it again.

And this time, with the light shining, we realized there was something INSIDE the sofa behind the batting. (or whatever you call the underpinning of a sofa) We cut a slit in the material and voila—there INSIDE the sofa was the wallet along with my son’s long lost copy of THE TWO TOWERS. (he was ecstatic!)

I think I screamed. To my way of thinking, that was a small miracle. The wallet was inside the sofa. Obviously it had somehow worked its way down, not magically appeared, but this is a fairly new leather sofa and. . . honestly? We would NEVER have looked inside like that. Who would?

Maybe I should cut open all my furniture to see what’s inside. In fact, I’m in possession of my grandmother’s antique sofa that is at least sixty-five years old. I wonder what secret items found their way beneath the cushions and deep down inside, away from curious eyes?

The point, of course, is that fervent prayer really does work, and I’m certain that without that prayer, we would never have found the wallet.

Thank you, God.

The Government Shutdown is Stranger than Fiction

The past couple of weeks I’ve attempted to research for a new story idea. I say “attempted” because I keep running up against this message:

“Because of the federal government shutdown, national parks are closed and the National Park Service website is not being maintained.” )

Someone took the time to create a landing page for government websites. I haven’t checked other government websites, but the national parks web pages are shut down. Doesn’t it cost  more money to do this than to just leave the website operational?

And I’m not sure “shutdown” is actually the correct word here because the website is there, I’m just not allowed to view it. That means I’ll just have to go around the government websites and view all the private websites about the national parks to find the information I need.

But this is only a minor inconvenience compared to other national park shutdown experiences. In one such story, tourists from all over the world were visiting Yellowstone National Park when the government shut down. Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  According to the Newburyport News, tourists were kept locked in a hotel by an armed guard. What in the world?

Many more such stories can be found at this article.

What I find in common with the various situations is how strange they are. Unbelievable, in fact. I don’t think I could put any of these stories in a novel because they’re just too strange. No one would ever believe the U.S. Government would do such a thing.

Am I right?
