Treasures at the Top of the World


I may not be up for climbing any famous 14ers, but thankfully in Colorado some can be accessed by road. Pikes Peak was amazing and the views stunning, but Mt. Evans totally blew me away. Not only is Mt. Evans a fraction taller, but it’s a little more open so you can really enjoy the scenery. But, the highlight of the trip was seeing all the Mountain Goats around 14,000 feet elevation. I especially loved catching a glimpse of all the young lambs. Nothing is cuter than a baby animal.

Pre-Order #Bargain #Ebooks


My publisher has recently discounted a number of ebooks available for pre-order to just $0.99. These books will only be available at this price during pre-order. Once released the price will be raised to their regular retail price. Pelican Book Group publishes only Christian fiction and Clean and Wholesome fiction (under the Prism Book Group imprint), which is where mine fall. Anyway, if you’re interested in any of these titles check them out before release for a great bargain. I’m not sure of each book’s release date, so please check the price to be sure it’s still pre-order and still $0.99 before purchasing. Enjoy!

The View from 14,000 Feet


I finally made it to Pikes Peak just outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Despite some smoke from the fires burning in the state, the views were spectacular. I’m pleased to report that 14,115 feet in elevation didn’t seem to affect me much. It was truly a beautiful day!
