2018 Guest Author & Review Schedule


Bookish Friends,

As a virtual assistant for multiple authors, the time I have for reading and reviewing has greatly diminished. However, I am setting a goal for myself to review two books per month. Furthermore, a number of very talented authors have accepted my invitation to contribute to the blog. I can’t wait—2018 is going to be amazing!

Many thanks to all my loyal readers and subscribers! I’d love to hear from you. Please leave a comment on this page letting me know which Christian titles you are most looking forward to reading in the New Year.


Newly Added

Authors, Novels & National Parks will be returning to Christian Shelf-Esteem in April.
