Conversion Scenes--Authors Revealed!

Coolest Clash Comment:
 “Today is the day of salvation, for someone known only to God. Only He knows the circumstances He'll use. Christian authors may be the vehicle. How exciting is that?"

Today is the big REVEAL--the day we let you know whose excerpts you’ve read this week. What? Haven’t read them yet? Well, get on over there! (click HERE) Voting is over for the week, but you can still enter the drawing for one of our featured books. Simply leave a comment (including contact info) on any blog post between now and Friday, the 14th. If you haven't done so yet, you can enter the drawing a second time by subscribing to COTT (sidebar). 


“As Pastor Paul Porter extended an altar invitation, Destiny sneaked a peek at Clay’s face. His hands had been fisted into white-knuckled balls for the past twenty minutes.”



“Oh dear. Not more talk about God,” Joleen frowned.“Why so scared? Do you really think it was by accident that you came into my office that first time? Or met Sam, who led Jennifer to the Lord, who then led Jade to the Lord and so on? Everything that’s happened in the past couple of months has been so well orchestrated, it can’t be mere coincidence. God’s been in control all along.”


COTT extends both these lovely authors a warm welcome! Let’s learn a little about their books.


Is a little respect too much to ask at a funeral? Apparently it is for Destiny May. Clay Gallagher is built like a small mountain and far more vocal than is fitting when he shows up late to her mother's "going away party." When it turns out he's not even at the right funeral, Destiny demands retribution in the form of an escape from the day's dreary proceedings. Spending time with a handsome stranger who makes her laugh is more therapeutic than fighting with her overbearing family. Clay finds Destiny beautiful, charming...and intelligent. So why is she stubbornly determined to open a Christian dating service? Clay has little respect for such a frivolous profession, and doesn't think the small, conservative town of Castle Creek will welcome such a progressive business. But when Destiny is threatened by an anonymous caller who deeply resents her and what she does for a living, Clay makes it his business to keep the saucy redhead out of harm's way. Trouble is, spending time in her company weakens his defenses, and Destiny may be the one thing Clay can't escape... if he even wants to.


What's a girl to do? Joleen Allen is on the hunt. For a man, that is. Unfortunately, every time the mother of five meets a prospect, he falls for one of her daughters instead! Meanwhile, her ex-husband, Harold, is back in the picture after a stint in prison, and he's looking for revenge. He'll do anything to see Joleen's reputation and her relationship with their children ruined. Harold has devised an elaborate plan to slander Joleen and ruin her financially, and will stop at nothing-even murder-to see it through. At forty-four, Joleen has seen a thing or two. She became a mother at sixteen, and her five highly independent children are now grown. Jasmine is a successful ad executive, but has a drinking problem. Jill is a tough cop, while middle child, Jennifer, surprises them all with her tenacity. Jinger is a self-centered glamor girl, and the baby of the family, Jade, is utterly spoiled. All the interesting men they meet get tossed around by this pack of barracudas. Adding to the mix are some drug deals, a kidnapping, insurance fraud, and secrets from the past, making life very complicated, indeed. With grit, humor, action, intrigue and romance, My Mother the Man-Eater is a redemptive story about a woman whose search for meaning in life sends her straight into...the arms of God.

Next week, we’ll get to know Delia and Tracy, but today, I have a question for you. What is your favorite verse of Scripture speaking on the blood of Christ, grace, or mercy?
