There is a Prodigal Diva talking trash in my laptop. But I thought I should take a break from her for a while and relish in my newfound treasures. I love to read more than I love to write. I take my reading seriously. So today I'm opening my treasure box of some good reads that I've read this fall that you need to take note of. All have Christian themes. Click here .

Ginger Garrett's Dark Hour
This summer I highlighted this novel as one of the best summer selections for Christian Readers. God is good. He has blessed me to call the good ones out, because this month the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance has made it our book selection. Remember today is an open track back day, leave your best blog entry in the trackback.

(Leading Ladies Publishers)
...I could tell you that my husband loves me and treats me, right...but you read enough fiction. My husband rarely comes home anymore and when he does he sleeps on the couch or complains that I am not the woman he married. He had the nerve to say that marrying me was an experience he would not want to repeat.
No one gets married thinking that one day they are going to fall out of love with their spouse and get a divorce, and no one, I mean no one ever thinks that the man that falls to his knees and plants an engagement ring on your finger, then stands before a room full of people and pronounces his undying love for you will ever sum up your life together as an experience. Judge Mablean where are you when we need you, girlfriend?
Now I know that you are wondering why I on't talk to someone like my pastor or the First Lady of my church...been there and done that so many times.
"Sister, Shana, if you would just submit things would get better." Pastor Hughes said that to me. Told me I have a problem with authority.
"A man likes to know that his wife is going to be home waiting up for him when he gets there , no matter what time he comes in the house." The First Lady told me that.
What I'd like to know is why I have to be the one waiting up until three and four o'clock for him when I am the one working three jobs to pay our bills? Can you answer that, Pastor and First Lady?

Last year, I hosted October's Celebration of New Christian Fiction. I thought it would be fun to repost that entry here. Some TMA Members have short stories posted in here. Part of the entries to this celebration came from Dave Long's conversion short story contest. As I read through some of these and cringe at my own entry, I wonder why we don't do this anymore. I also wonder about new ways to showcase our talent. I wonder have my writing improved since last year. Click here and you decide.
