Conversion Scenes--Winning Authors Revealed!

This Clash’s winner is… 
 
DELIA LATHAM and her excerpt from 
DESTINY’S DREAM

Congratulations, Delia!

Here’s the first bit from her excerpt.

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. Now a muscle worked in the strong line of his jaw as the familiar, sweet notes of “Softly and Tenderly” played in the background.

Miss Willard was consistent in her preference for the old hymns.

Right now, Destiny had no objection.

She laid a gentle hand over one of Clay’s hard fists. He opened his eyes and slanted a misty look her way even as he unfurled his fingers to wrap them around hers. Without a word, he nodded, and they stood. Destiny walked with him toward the front of the church, joyous tears dimming her vision.

Wow. I really am touched! Tracy's excerpt was great, I knew I had stiff competition as soon as I read it. Thanks to all who voted for my conversion scene - I appreciate your vote, and I appreciate YOU!

Tracy, it's been a blast "clashing" with you! I pray God blesses your promotional efforts for My Mother the Man Eater, and that it is more successful than you ever dreamed it would be.

Jennifer and April...thank you for inviting me to COTT! It was an honor - and SO MUCH FUN. :)

Congratulations Delia on a win well deserved. For those who haven't read DESTINY'S DREAM yet, may I encourage you to do so. I just finished it and loved, loved, loved it! I'm posting a review next week on my blog along with a promo for Delia as she is hosting an Amazon book launch on Jan. 18. If you're thinking of buying Delia's book, do so that day. You won't be disappointed.

Oh, Tracy - you're such a jewel! Thank you for plugging my launch, as I completely forgot to do so. LOL More information regarding my Jan. 18 book launch can be accessed through my website (www.delialatham.net).

Thanks, Clare!

Congratulations!!! How exciting, this was a fun week. I loved how both authors praised each other's work and seemed to be fans of the other. How precious.

Thanks for playing! And congrats to our drawing winners too.

Thanks, Michelle! Tracy is a sweet lady, and judging from her conversion excerpt, a very good author. (I must admit, I have yet to read her book - but it's on my TBR list) These competitions are wonderful - I love participating, and they're a lot of fun. But at the end of the day, it's PEOPLE that matter.

Tracy and I are both members of the John 3:16 Marketing Network. Helping and encouraging one another is what it's all about. :)
