Booksigning in a coffeehouse environment with a warm cup of Hot Apple Cider…

Have you ordered your copy yet of a 2nd Cup of Hot Apple Cider?

The music by the Bonikowsky sons really set the tone for the evening.

Lando Klassen has been faithful in season and out of season.

It was Lando Klassen’s generosity in putting up the money up front that got my book Battle for the Soul of Canada off the ground.  I was able to pay him back in just a few short months because the book sales went so well.

An irenic look by Dr Paul Beckingham and Ed Hird, co-authors for the book 2nd Cup of Hot Apple Cider.

Lando really believes in the power of books, and has given HAC2 a strong endorsement. I would recommend that you contact House of James online to purchase ‘A 2nd Cup of Hot Apple Cider’ by clicking on ’2nd Cup’.  Lando and House of James deserve our customer support.

Alternately you can dial into Amazon  either in the USA or Canada and order a copy.

Why not order your copy right now before you forget about it? Just click here.  A Second Cup of Hot Apple Cider is a remarkably well-produced books with many stories that will inspire you and often leave you in grateful tears.

“I’m afraid there’s been an accident…”

12bdf6ff-3021-4e73-bccd-bc919398d1a0-7068-0000031133e7b4d9Sandy Brown and her family have just moved to Spokane, Washington where her husband, Scott, is pastoring a new church. With a fresh start, Sandy is determined to devote more time to her four children. But, within weeks of settling in their new life, the Brown family is plunged into turmoil.

Sandy receives shocking news that her children aren’t safe, which brings back haunting memories of the trauma she experienced as a girl. Then, the unthinkable happens…

A brutal attack puts Sandy on the brink of losing everything she’s loved. Her faith in God and the family she cherishes are pushed to the ultimate limit.

Is healing possible when so many loved ones are hurt? Are miracles really possible through the power of prayer? Can life return to the way it was before?

Blue Sky reveals how a mother’s most basic instinct isn’t for survival… but for family.

If you’re a fan of Karen Kingsbury, then you’ll love Blue Sky. Get your copy today on paperback or  kindle.

Hot Apple Cider 2 came out

The Hot Apple Cider 2 anthology came out. It has thirty-seven Canadian Christian writers in the book, including yours truly, writing about strengthening marriages. I would encourage you to consider obtaining a copy.

The first Hot Apple Cider anthology was very well received. Over 45,000 copies of Hot Apple Cider 2 are being produced. You will love it. It will be an excellent gift item for both your Christian friends and seekers.
