About Me

I have been an avid reader from as early as I can remember. Since becoming a Christian in my early 20s, my passion for reading led to specifically Christian fiction and this has developed into reviewing them on this blog. I love reading new author's novels or author's who have not had many reviews or exposure and giving them much needed encouragement where appropriate.

Author Spotlight: Guy L. Pace

As a reviewer of Christian fiction, I have developed a passion for new Christian authors who write in the genres that I like to read. Any new author needs as much exposure and encouragement as they can get, especially Christian authors. It can be a lonely existence spending months or years researching, brainstorming, writing, editing, finding a publisher, more editing and revisions, cover design, then the all-important launch! From what I have seen and experienced with some authors, after their launch, they can become anxious and despairing when reviews don't appear, and/or sales are slow to occur. They question whether it is worth all the effort they have just put in writing their first novel and this journey to becoming a published author.

It is from this angle that I wanted to help counteract this occurrence. This blog exists to not only promote Christian fiction but to support authors and increase their exposure by giving them a review and an interview, especially if they are a new author.

I discovered Guy L. Pace when his debut novel, Sudden Mission, was promoted on Twitter. I was drawn to the cover and checked out the link. I was impressed with the description and discovered it was in the genres I love to read, supernatural, spiritual warfare, and angels and demons. I contacted Guy on his website and stated I am interested in his novel and would review it and offer him an interview. I will be conducting this in the near future. 

So let me introduce you to this new, Christian author, Guy L. Pace. First let's have a look at Guy's Bio. 

Guy L. Pace, born in Great Falls, MT, grew up in the Pacific Northwest. He served in the US Navy, including combat operations in Vietnam in 1972.

He was a Navy journalist and worked primarily in community newspapers as a reporter, photographer, editor and finally a managing editor. He changed careers in the mid-80’s getting into computer support, training, networking and systems, and eventually information security. He retired in 2011 after more than 20 years working in higher education.

He lives with his wife, Connie, in Spokane, where he gets to spend time with children and grandchildren, and ride his Harley-Davidson.


Now let's have a look at Sudden Mission which has just been released today, August 18, 2015, in ebook and printed editions:

Sudden Mission

Satan, once one of God’s favorites, now His Adversary, grows impatient with the plan and begins to harvest souls. In a fell swoop, he throws reality out of whack and the world into chaos. God calls on Paul and his friends Amy and Joe to set things right. The young teens journey through a messed up world—with a little help from an angel—struggling against everything the Adversary can throw in their path to accomplish their Sudden Mission.

With their world and their parents’ lives hanging in the balance–and the Adversary sending everything from zombies to killer aliens to stand in their way–Paul will discover if he has the strength and faith to set things right again and stop Satan’s harvest.

It already has one Five Star review:


Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a fun book from beginning to end. Pace takes his characters through a multitude of challenges and forces 
them to face both good and evil. Along the way their physical, emotional, and spiritual strength is tested time and 
again. Though they are young, their fortitude is admirable causing the reader to root for them the entire way, no 
matter how dire the situations seems.
This reads like a YA science fiction novel yet it has strong Christian themes throughout that ties the entire plot 
together nicely. An excellent debut novel for Mr. Guy Pace. Well done.
I highly recommend this read!!
And has already reached No. 1 in Amazon's Hot New Releases:

Sudden Mission is published by Vox Dei

Readers and reviews are an author's best asset, so I encourage any reader of Christian fantasy, the supernatural or spiritual warfare, to consider reading Sudden Mission and help promote Guy's book by adding a review on Goodreads, Shelfari, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and on Google+, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest (or any other social media you subscribe to).

I am really looking forward to reading Sudden Mission, interviewing Guy and reading his future novels.
