INTRODUCING ~ Our Stories Before The Stories

Journeystojoy is excited to announce a brand new concept in author/novel promotion.

Each Thursday morning ~ February 14 through December 12, 2019 ~ you're invited to read from the character's viewpoint of MANY novellas and novels, just how they arrived in the story they've been written into.

You'll be introduced to a wide array of Christian authors and genres from Children's, Middle Grade, Young Adult, Historical Romantic Suspense, Western Historical, Contemporary Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romantic Mystery, Speculative Romance, Women's Fiction, to a whole LOT more.
Can you tell I'm excited about this project?
                                                                YOU BET I AM.

I've had the opportunity to read the post scheduled for NEXT THURS ~ FEB 14th - OH WOW - I can hardly wait to see your reaction to the two characters who've told their back story in a Romantic Mystery novel.

For your participation ~ those characters have a signed-by-the-author book awaiting one blessed winner.

JOIN US HERE, BEGINNING NEXT THURSDAY! We are so looking forward to your visit.

Drawings for give-aways will be held WEDNESDAY EVENINGS preceding the next post-date. You'll have several days' opportunity to comment!

May God richly bless you through the characters and their stories this year!

Your idea to highlight character backstory is great, Joy. You'll be helping a lot of authors...and readers. Bless you.

Joy, Congratulations! You've come up with a wonderful idea, and I'm honored to participate in this great new journey with you. I can't wait to read all the stories by the characters themselves. said...

I asked God to give me a spark, Gail Kittleson - something different for the blog to use to promote authors and their stories - THIS IS WHAT HE GAVE ME!

Loving it!

Hi Joy

This blog sounds so interesting! I can't wait to read posts and watch the blog come to life.

God gave your a gem!

Blessings on you and all the authors. said...

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule (and fun with the horses) to stop by and check out this new project.

Thursday, Kay DiBianca's characters come to life and tell their STORIES BEFORE THE STORY!

I do pray this will be something the presenting authors will have fun with and readers will truly enjoy (and desire to PURCHASE THE AUTHOR'S BOOKS)

big hugs for supporting! _ SUCH AN ENCOURAGEMENT_
