What Women Fear

A Favor and A Little Gift From Me!

Hey friends! I was wondering if I could ask you a favor…

Have you read “What Women Fear?” If you liked it, and if you would be so kind, could you leave a review here on Amazon? It turns out it’s a good thing to have reviews and I told my publisher I would ask you.

If you do leave a review, please send your name/address and a link to the review to and I will send you a signed bookplate for your book! It’s a small gesture but I really appreciate your time and support…

Thank you SO much.


Bloom (in)courage, What Women Fear

My Book on Bloom!

Well friends, today is the day! So exciting to have some of my girlfriends join me for the videos over at (in)courage. Today’s is the intro video with Brandi, and you will LOVE her.

Click here to watch it:)

And since I’ve already been asked a few times about my shirt in the video (I love the easy questions!), I thought it was from the Limited but it’s actually from Ross I believe. It is precious and was cheap…the best combo ever.

There’s actually a ton of great conversation already happening and we would hate for you to miss it, so please stop by and make yourself welcome. One of the things a bunch of people are mentioning is that they really like the analogy I used about the tightrope. That made me smile because for weeks I was convinced that the cover of the book should be an old fashioned looking photo of a woman on a tightrope from behind while she balanced with a long pole…kind of like a vintage”Water for Elephants” vibe. I searched and searched online and could never find what I was looking for. But somewhere in the searching I ran across the photo that turned out to be the cover and I loved the feeling of trying to balance. So, we tracked down the rights (a random man in Germany) and voila! But I got the biggest kick out of that being something that barely made a dent in the actual writing but was so pivotal in my thinking, so it was cool that others liked it 🙂

There are a lot of behind the scenes things that I’ll be sharing as well as we go through the book, including photos from many of the stories I tell…and some of them (6th grade school photo, IF I get the nerve) will certainly, umm, enhance my stories. I’m loving the opportunity to share this side of things with you all and I really hope you’ll pop in and say hey.

Much love,

A Little Glitch.

Hey all!!!

Quick update on What Women Fear, because I have gotten a lot of messages about it and B&H has been hard at work trying to figure out what’s going on. Here’s the scoop. A bunch of people who had pre-ordered the book got messages saying that the release date had been pushed back (it hadn’t been). I believe it was saying it wasn’t going to be shipped for several weeks, but it looks like it was just some fluky email because they have plenty of stock and people are saying that they are getting them.

Amazon is having a similar situation (although it may be fixed by now) saying that it wouldn’t be shipped for a few weeks. They also have full stock and are shipping, so I think it should ship right away even though it says it’s longer.

For the record, I take it as a compliment that Satan is getting involved with this, because I think it means I included JUUUSSSSTTT the right amount of Scripture 🙂

SO, because I have the greatest publisher in the universe, we are working on a little consolation prize for those of you who received the message from B&N because we are bummed that it happened. Could you do me a favor and send an email to angelac519 at gmail dot com and put B&N email in the header. Also, include an address where we could send you a little something to say thank you for being patient and sorry for the mix-up 🙂 It would be awesome if you could just forward the email to me so we can keep track of it that way…

Nobody asked me to say this next part, but I would really like to anyway.

I am a HUGE, HUGE Barnes and Noble fan, and this little glitch IN NO WAY reflects them. In fact, I tend to believe that because someone there chose to take some big chances on a Christian book, the enemy is going to throw anything he can in the way. I’m not one to say that lightly, but I have sensed the warfare surrounding this book in a way I never have before, and none of this has surprised me in the least. I just wanted to publicly say that I have been BLOWN away by the way B&N has blessed me and supported me and I wanted to encourage you to keep on shopping over there, because when the big dogs see a little Christian book making waves, they might start to look for the wind-Maker 🙂

I’ll look forward to those emails and will be in touch with you!

Thank you, as always, for your grace.

With love (& SO MUCH GRATITUDE!)


P.S. Don’t stop writing your entries on the post right before this!!!! We haven’t picked a winner yet…:)

P.P.S. If you read the book and liked it, would you consider leaving a quick review on Amazon or B&N? Even just clicking the little stars helps us authors out a lot.

If you read it and hated it, pretend you didn’t read this last part. It never happened. It neeeeeever happpeennnneeeed….
