  • Putting an arm around teen moms

    in Books

    Everything changes the day young girls discover they’regoing to be moms, and the pressures they’re under can be crushing. The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy reports teen moms are more likely to drop out of high school and nearly half of them live below the poverty line.
    Tricia Goyer understands. Born to a single mom, Tricia found herself pregnant at 17, and she remembers what it felt like to carry the weight of the world on her shoulders.
    Join Perla and I along with author, Trish Goyer as we discuss her new book "Teen Mom: You're Stronger Than You Think."
    In Teen Mom, Tricia pours out her heart and shares advice for the hard things you face. She also longs to provide encouragement, reminding you that you can be the mom your child deserves?not in your own strength, but in the strength God provides.
    About Trish:
    USA Today bestselling author Tricia Goyer is the author of more than 40 books, including the novelization for Moms’ Night Out. She has written over 500 articles for national publications and blogs for high traffic sites like TheBetterMom.com and MomLifeToday.com.

  • Author Sean Chercover Visits Second Sunday Crime LIVE with Libby Hellmann

    in Books

    On July 12 at 6 PM CDT, I welcome Sean Chercover to Second Sunday Crime. Sean is one of the most acclaimed authors writing crime fiction (and more) today. He started out writing  BIG CITY, BAD BLOOD and TRIGGER CITY, which introduced us to PI Ray Dudgeon, a disillusioned newspaper reporter turned PI. BIG CITY won the  Shamus, Gumshoe, Crimespree, and Lovey Awards. It was short-listed for the Thriller, the Anthony, the Arthur Ellis, and the Barry Awards.  TRIGGER CITY, also featured Dudgeon, and won the Dilys and Crimespree Awards. His collection of short stories won the Anthony for Best Short Story and the CWA Short Story Dagger, and was nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, and Dagger awards. Whew! Then Sean turned to—well—I'm not sure what to call the genre: part mystery, part sci-fi, part conspiracy thriller, with his Game Trilogy. THE TRINITY GAME introduced us to Daniel Byrne, an investigator for the Vatican department that scrutinizes miracle claims. Over ten years and 721 cases, not one miracle he tested has proved true. Until Case #722. That was a national best-seller. The second in the series THE DEVIL'S GAME just came out last week. It continues Daniel's story as he investigates a bizarre new strain of the Plague that seems to flood the minds of its victims with visions of the future.
    I am delighted to welcome Sean to Second Sunday Crime; he's been a good friend for years. Please join us and call in LIVE!

  • It's a New Release and Giveaway of UNDERSILVER on July 13th

    in Books

    It's a new release and giveaway! Come listen on July 13th as I read from my newest release, UNDERSILVER, a sensuously erotic sci-fi romance that's filled with other-worldly adventure and suspense. And one lucky listener will win a copy! *****
    The planet had secrets it never revealed, until it was too late. Centuries ago, mankind's only hope for survival were the seven vessels specially fitted to send the last survivors of Earth to a planet named New Earth. Seven space ships that became floating cities once they landed on the water-only world teeming with edible seafood, as well as dangerous creatures. Lt. Jace Novick, of the ship UnderPlatinum, is sent to sister ship UnderSilver to see if he can help find a possible solution to their growing problem. Food is beginning to run low, catches are scarcer, and the tension between ships is increasing as starvation becomes imminent. Lt. Commander Rhone Derth has created a security device called wrap shields to protect Silver from repeated attacks by the planet's hostile monsters. But it seems the shields are also keeping the fish away as well. Jace believes he has an answer, but it means he and Rhone must work together despite Rhone's antagonism toward him, and the short time he's been allotted before he must return to his own ship. Together, they try to discover a way to survive as the other vessels turn on each other in a desperate battle for the last of the dwindling food supply, not knowing that another, more malevolent being is watching them from the depths. Warning! Contains loss of oxygen, vicious sea creatures, massive destruction, scientific theories, near-drowning, subsonic bursts, questionable seafood, alien artifacts, and two people trying to survive what could be the complete annihilation of their species.
