What I’m reading for January 2018

For several years now, reading my Bible and just for fun novels has been a goal.

Up until this year though I’ve been reading mostly non-fiction books that applied to my work, and one CC Tillery novel each year as I designed the covers and they were released.

Since I think this is my first blog post on what I’m reading apart from cat books, let me start by saying what I like to read. If we don’t read the same kind of books my thoughts on what I like won’t apply to you. I tend to like thrillers, and authors like John Grisham, David Baldacci, and Greg Isles. I am not a re-reader.

I don’t care for paranormal, sci-fi, books that tell me what to think or push an agenda, stories about rape,  evil, or extreme violence, especially against children. For some reason, I’m okay with a storyline trying to find serial killers. Yeah I know, makes no sense.

The making of the covers for the Appalachian Journey series by CC Tillery [final part 4] is for Wise Woman

Boy this post has been a long time coming!  Now we did physically build another house, move and I had other projects going but I think I’m at least a year overdue on writing the post.

The sister duo already has a new series about the Brown Mountain Lights with one out and the second one in the works. I guess I’ve just been busy with things but today while clearing out my computer files I decided to post before some of the files I had were deleted.

This one was bittersweet. It was my favorite cover but it was also the last in the series. I can tell you the end of the book required tissue.  Continue reading
