in the drawing for a GIFT CARD to be used wherever you like. . .this is not a SMALL gift card in it's value. . .BUT. . .Christmas is coming, and I want to give back to the readers/followers who've been there for me all this time, making my journey to joy so much brighter.

1 - Have you read book one - The Hesitant Heiress yet? 
2 - Have you seen/read book two - The Bound Heart?

GET THESE ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST, FOLKS!










Dawn Crandall writes long inspirational historical romantic suspense. She has a BA in Christian Education from Taylor University and lives in northeast Indiana with her ever-supportive husband, her three cats [Lilly, Pumpkin and Clover] and their newest addition, a little baby boy named Rhett (March 2014).

A former bookseller at Barnes & Noble, Dawn didn't begin writing until her husband found out about her long-buried dream of writing a book. Without a doubt about someday becoming traditionally published, he encouraged her to quit her job in 2010 in order to focus on writing her first book, The Hesitant Heiress. It didn't take her long to realize that writing books was what she was made to do. Dawn is represented by Joyce Hart of Hartline Literary.

Dawn is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), secretary for the Indiana ACFW Chapter (Hoosier Ink), and associate member of the Great Lakes ACFW Chapter.

 Dawn;
Thank you for entrusting your special work with me and my blog with both book releases. I'm honored to have been able to help you!
May God richly bless you as Book Three comes along.
Much love,
Joy

  5. Joy,
    These books look like something I know someone (and we both know who this is!) would like to read. They sound right up her alley. It was so great you got a chance to catch up with her yesterday and it was good to see you at the conference in September! Can't wait to read your book in print too!

    Blessings,
    Chris

  19. Samantha, Sierra, LaneHillHouse,Mrs.Tina, Nancy,and Julie. . .thanks for stopping by and for entering the drawing of the gift card.
    My pleasure to have you check out Journeys To Joy as well as Dawn Crandall's GREAT HISTORICAL ROMANCES. . .delighted to see how many feel THE BOUND HEART is even better than THE HESITANT HEIRESS - so difficult for authors to make each one stronger, deeper than the first and it's got to be music to Dawn's ears to hear no. 2 is better than no. 1 - I'm also with those of you who said they can't wait for the Spring 2015 release of book no. 3
    CONGRATULATIONS, DAWN - great reviews!

  20. It is music to my ears, Joy! I'm so glad readers think so! I love them both so much--I love whichever one I'm reading the most at that time. And yes, I reread my books. I can't help it! I can read on sentence, or even just have someone tell me of a certain scene they loved, and I want to go back and experience it all over again! :)

  21. I've read both the first and the second book! I can't wait for the third!!! The second was my favorite but they both rock!
