From time to time, I get in this mood where I feel like just giving something away. The fact that I have the ability to do so makes it even more exciting. I know that many of you like it when an author is feeling generous, so I think you might like this.

It was around this time in 2014 that I began my writing journey. My first novel, “What God Brings Together” was a labor of love and it started me on a path I never imagined I would be on. Being a writer was not a dream I ever had. In fact, I hated to read until about six years ago. (I was a mother with two young boys and a toddler daughter. I needed an escape.)  The story ministered to me while I wrote it as well as many of those who have read it.

Here is what a couple of you had to say…

“The author tells an engrossing and beautiful story of a couple torn apart by circumstances and their journey back to one another as they learn to put their trust in God.” – Amazon Reviewer

“This story helped me so with my lesson for the week. And it is so close to my life. Oh what a blessing.” – Amazon Reviewer

As a Special Thank You


With the fall and winter coming, more of us will be coming inside and wanting to curl up with a warm beverage, a blanket, and a good book. (I release a calming sigh at the thought. Of course, I will be writing like a crazy woman.)

I have many book reviews lined up to share with you, most have giveaways tied in, as well as other bits of news like sneak peeks into my next book. I want as many as possible to have an opportunity to see these posts so I am having a subscriber giveaway.

I’ll be giving up to 5 Copies of “What God Brings Together” to current and new subscribers.

Here is what I ask of you.

 If you are already a subscriber, I ask that you share this post.
(If you have the book already and your name happens to be selected, you will receive a $5 Amazon card.)

If you are not a subscriber, please subscribe and then share.

The more you share, the more chances you get. Just be sure to tag me. My Facebook name is Melissa Wardwell, Twitter is @mwardwell.

This will run through the weekend until 9/12/16. I will be making my selections Tuesday Morning.

Seems simple enough, right? So share away and be sure to tell your friends when you share why you are sharing.

Thank you all so much for all your prayers, kind words and support over the last couple of years. It has been a joy to get to know some of you and I look forward to getting to know more of you in the years to come.
