Why I Love Reconciliation

Why I love Reconciliation. Hmm…how can I fit this all in one blog post?

  • The first reason I love Reconciliation is because of the author, Amy Brock McNew.

This author is so incredibly passionate about the words she writes, that they speak truth and change people’s lives for the better, I can’t help but admire her. She’s a hard worker, a fast writer, and I am beyond thrilled that her second book is out so soon! (But, ahem, now that I’ve read it, I’m ready for the next one…) ;)

Here is a little more about her:

Amy Brock McNew doesn’t just write speculative fiction, she lives and breathes it. Exploring the strange, the supernatural, and the wonderfully weird, Amy pours her guts onto the pages she writes, honestly and brutally revealing herself in the process. Nothing is off-limits. Her favorite question is “what if?” and she believes fiction can be truer than our sheltered and controlled realities. Visit AmyBrockMcNew.com to learn more about this intriguing author.

  • The second is the cover.

I know I’ve said this a thousand times, but I adore Sara Helwe’s covers. So much. She not only captures the intense emotions in the book, she knows how to make a character come to life where you can’t help but just pick up that cover! Happy sigh.

  • Third, what the book is about. I mean, read what the back cover says!

Some ghosts from the past refuse to stay dead.

Finally. Finally everything is coming together for Liz Brantley. She’s marrying Ryland Vaughn, the man of her dreams. She’s embraced her calling and battles the minions of hell bent on her destruction. And she’s left her dark past far behind her. Or so she thought. A secret she holds close, stuffed down deep, surfaces at the wrong time for everyone in Liz’s life, leaving a trail of devastation. Left reeling, Liz wonders if she made a mistake, putting her trust in God, her guardian Arie, and Ryland. And the demon Kade capitalizes on her shaken faith. With a vengeance. Torn between her tortured past and the future she craves, Liz is desperate to defeat every demon that stands in her way. Before all hell breaks loose and swallows her whole.

Amy got so many messages from me while I was reading the book as I was swept away in the story and experienced the devastation and triumph of the main character. Amy doesn’t pull punches! This is an intense, gripping read, and I cannot recommend it strongly enough. I loved every moment I was lost in Liz Brantley’s world!

  • And the final reason I am so excited about Reconciliation is Amy’s Facebook launch party! It is tonight!!! I am hosting it for her, and I cannot even tell you how many prizes and fun “get to know the author” and “get to know you” posts we brainstormed and put together for you all.

Review of Rebirth by Amy Brock McNew

When I first read Rebirth, I was one of Amy’s beta readers. I begged her for a copy of the book I’d heard so much about–pretty much stalking her until she gave in and said yes–because it sounded amazing.

Well guess what? It was even better than I’d hoped.

And now not only is Amy Brock McNew‘s award-winning book being published, she is also my publishing sister! (For those who don’t know what that means–her book is being publishing by the same company publishing my books.) Hurray!

So today I get to be a part of her blog tour as her debut novel launches into the world in just a few short days.

But, first things first, here is the back cover copy:

Liz Brantley has a gift she wants to return.

Able to see and fight demonic forces, she has spent her life alone, battling the minions of hell bent on her destruction, running from the God who gave her this curse. Drawn to her abilities, the demon Markus unleashes havoc on her hometown and pulls Liz further into the throes of battle.

She’s desperate for a normal life.

When she meets a mysterious man who seems unaware of the mystical realm that haunts her, the life she’s always wanted moves within reach. But her slice of normal slips from her grasp when an old flame, Ryland Vaughn, reappears with secrets of his own. Secrets that will alter her destiny.

Torn between two worlds, Liz is caught in an ancient war between good and evil.

And she isn’t sure which side to choose.

Amy’s characters are gritty, real. Alive. Her writing is intense and draws you immediately into Liz’s world–a world filled with heartbreak, survival, and the slaughtering of demons.

I was hooked. Still am.

This urban fantasy with a touch of romance exceeded my expectations and instantly made me hunger for the next book in the series. (Come on, book two…)

And I hear she’s giving away some pretty awesome prizes at her Facebook Launch Party, including a few signed copies of Rebirth. Check it out here! (I also happen to be hosting it for her. I cannot wait!!!) :D

And don’t forget to check out tomorrow’s blog stop at Jennette Mbewe’s website for an interview with the author herself!

Way to go, Amy! I’m so excited for you! Your book is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!

In Him,


Btw, Chicago’s Book Expo America 2016 was incredible. I’m so thankful they brought it to Chicago instead of New York for the first time in years so I could go! Next week, I’ll tell you more, but for now, preorder a copy of Rebirth and see why everyone who reads it loves it! So in love with this book, you guys. Until next week! :)
