Ship's Log

September 10-September 16th



Ahoy Mateys! Welcome aboard, find yerself a nice spot on the deck and enjoy.


                    ********************************






Ahoy Mateys! This be a special post dedicated to me Cap'n MaryLu Tyndall's newest release SHE WALKS IN POWER



MaryLu Tyndall stepped out of her usual genre  of writing once again to pen a fantastic tale. This book has everything you would want in a Medieval adventure.....you have your Knights protecting Ladies, mysterious Castles and a Forest with a secret hiding place, a lovable Friar and an evil Warlock. Let me tell you this, if I hadn't already read ALL OF MaryLu's books, I would have never guessed that this wasn't her usual writing genre. She stepped up to the plate, dug in her heels and didn't stop until she put out one of her best books yet! 
Now, all of that being said, Chappy still favors MaryLu's Pirate stories....how can I not! 
So, me Cap'n is now a master of many different types of tales. And I am SO excited for her! 
Through prayer and a dedication to staying true to God in all of her books, I believe that MaryLu will continue to put out great books....in whatever genre she chooses to write.



Speaking of different genres, head over to MaryLu's blog and put your vote in for the type of story you want her to write next. Just click HERE


****************************


Alexia D'Clere didn't ask to be Protector of the Spear, but after her dying mother gave her the tiny metal object and made her promise to keep it safe, she had no choice. Orphaned at age eight, she began to take over the running of her parent's castle with the help of a trusted steward. Yet, when a plot to murder her was revealed, a friar whisked her away to live hidden in the forest. There, she learned to shoot expertly with bow and arrow and hone her skills to see into the spirit realm. 

Now, at eighteen, Alexia continues to keep the Spear protected, provide meat for the starving village, while secretly caring for her ill sister who still lives in the castle. With Alexia's powers of spiritual discernment and her skill as an archer, she is no match for those who come for the spear. That is until she meets Ronar LePeine, one of the King's elite guard. 

Ronar desires nothing more than to do his duty to God and King and pay penance for past sins. Yet a forest sprite with red, flaming hair blocks his every move, all the while enchanting him like no other. Something evil lurks at Castle Luxley, and both Ronar and Alexia are soon thrust into the middle of a spiritual battle which will not only test their very beliefs, but put them both in mortal danger.

***********************************



Award winning and best-selling author, MaryLu Tyndall dreamt of pirates and sea-faring adventures during her childhood days on Florida's Coast. After obtaining a degree in Math and working as software engineer for 15 years, she decided to test the waters as a writer. With now more than seventeen books published, she makes no excuses for the deeply spiritual themes embedded within her romantic adventures. As a follower of Christ, her stories often reflect her own journey and walk with God. Her hope is that readers will not only be entertained but will be brought closer to the Creator who loves them beyond measure. In a culture that accepts the occult, wizards, zombies, and vampires without batting an eye, MaryLu hopes to show the awesome present and powerful acts of God in a dying world. MaryLu makes her home with her husband, six children, two grandkids, and three cats on the California coast, where her imagination still surges with the sea.

  5. You have taken booknerdigans to a whole new level! It has never crossed my mind to make a Perler Bead creations for books (I'm going to put my kids on it!) and that doll is awesome. I tried to crochet a blanket for myself and it ended up being a baby blanket for my baby brother (he's 21 years younger than me). Your daughter is gifted!
    Please, enter my name in your drawing Chappy.

  10. Aye aye! Ahoy! You got a pretty talented girl to crochet such a cute doll. I never got further than a chain stitch daisy. Knitting however floats my boat. I love seeing the things other creative people come up with. Can't think of a better way to enjoy MaryLu's newest book than with a cute adorable doll for a reading buddy. =)
