It's a day to celebrate! Katie Ganshert's The Art of Losing Yourself and my Reservations for Two are officially three weeks old today!
To celebrate, we're giving away a copy of each book, as well as a bag of cornbread mix and a handmade, hand-stamped necklace. The pendant on the necklace reads faithful, a word that Katie and I agreed fit both books.
Katie here: God is faithful. It's one of my favorite things about Him. He's faithful when we mess up. He's faithful when life turns messy. He's faithful when we doubt His faithfulness. He's even faithful when we doubt His existence altogether. It's a truth Carmen Hart discovers in my latest novel, The Art of Losing Yourself. It's a truth I hope readers discover too.
Hillary here: In Reservations for Two, Juliette faces all kinds of new challenges, both professionally and personally. And it's the ones that hit close to home that feel the most heartbreaking. Juliette fights to continue to believe in God's faithfulness - even when the future ahead feels difficult and confusing.
And the cornbread? The peach cornbread Juliette enjoys in Reservations is already a fan favorite.
Katie here: The story is set on the panhandle of Florida, so there's a fair share of Southern flare, including the cuisine. There's one scene in particular where 17-year-old runaway, Gracie Fisher, finds herself completely out of her element, eating dinner in the home of a local pastor. Chicken fried steak and cornbread are on the menu
Use the mix as it is - it's Organic Marie Calendar's Cornbread mix, I promise it's delicious. Or you can add about two cups of peaches to it and have something extra-special that's great for family gatherings and potlucks, or for your own enjoyment on a warm day.

Update! Keeping this open for another short while, because Katie and I both have books on sale! Katie's Wildflowers for Winter and my A Table by the Window are both on sale for only $1.99 across e-book platforms.
