About Me

My photo

Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

Serials and Scenarios - Tribulation House

My Review:

I didn’t get my copy of Tribulation House until after the blog tour several weeks ago. Since I’ve now got a copy in my hands, I’m going to share my review.

Chris Well is truly a creative writer. In his hands words, grammar and punctuation take on artistic and unusual configurations. Unless you are a phobic regarding proper book-stylings, this is a good thing.

Unique blends of POV are woven throughout. Well obviously knows writing rules and then he transcends them.

Not only is Tribulation House a wild and crazy read like you might imagine from the premise. It is touching and spiritually and emotionally challenging. Well is similar in style to Ray Blackston and a newcomer, Geoffrey Wood, using humorous situations to penetrate and weave a story that will stick with the reader.

I’m giving Tribulation House 4.5 stars.

Kelly, I just wanted to say that I think you are doing well. Reading all these books, writing all these reviews, meeting authors, doing interviews, heading things up at Novel Reviews, making connections...
Where is it all leading? Who knows? God knows, and I pray He'll keep directing you. Your writing voice is so unique and funny, yet filled with grace and spiritual truth and honesty. I can't wait to see what becomes of you! God bless.

Thanks, Janet, you little cheerleader, you.

The feeling is mutual.

I'm content to glow in a dark little corner of the world until we can co-teach a class at ACFW, how about you?

Ooh, ooh, can I run the projector?

If you must, Janet.
