October and November Are Coming

by Kellyn Roth |
September 29, 2018

So this is going to be a pretty relaxed, quick post explaining all the stuff going on. It’s going to be scary. It’s going to be rushed.

But it must be done. Because I care about you not being completely confused through these next two months.

So. Without further ado, let me tell you about the next two months!

Lots of Blog Tours

Guess what? Kell got hired by Ambassador International, a Christian publishing company, to host a ton of blog tours.

This means that through all of October and most of November … we’re hosting blog tours? So every Monday and Saturday is basically taken up with that!

This means, of course, that …

I Need Bloggers!

The first tour, Fate of the Watchman, starts up next week (look for it! There’s a giveaway!).

But the rest still have their signups open!

Body by Blood

Join the blog tour for Body by Blood, a futuristic Christian thriller. This tour will run October 8th through October 12th. Sign up now!

A note from Kell: I love this premise because it’s so important for us to talk about how people with down syndrome and similar problems are still worthy, amazing, special humans!


Dr. Raymond Verity came back to life today. Awakening from an optical-cerebral transplant into a clone body, Ray is amazed at how society changed in the 27 years he was cryo-preserved. Having pioneered cloning technology based on fetal tissue experiments, he has no qualms destroying imperfect samples. Until he meets his only granddaughter and falls in love with her despite her Down Syndrome. When he discovers that Mary Nell is scheduled to be “replaced” by her genetically-perfect duplicate, Dr. Verity embarks on a desperate mission to atone for his past sins. Can he save both Mary Nell and her clone?

Body by Blood is a futuristic thriller which takes you on a heart-pounding journey that will call into question your core beliefs about life.

The Bloodstone Ring

Join the blog tour for The Bloodstone Ring, a historical thriller. This tour will run October 15th through October 19th. Sign up now!

A Note from Kell: Historical! And it reminds me a bit of Once a Stratton, which is always a plus. I’m reviewing this one!


In the 1840s, love between a white English noblewoman and a Jamaican is taboo. Yet Lady Carmen finds herself with child by Jake Foster. Their mocha-skinned love child, Lilly, is banished to Savannah, longing to know her birth story. Soon Lilly falls prey to Baroness Genevieve, wearer of the mysterious Bloodstone Ring.

The one person she counts on, Lady Katelyn, is powerless to save her. In a tale of betrayal, kidnapping, and harrowing illegal slave trade, nine-year-old Lilly runs for her life with life-changing adventures along the way. Can God equip Katelyn and her lawyer-beau, Andrew, to withstand the dark powers of the Bloodstone Ring and the brutal intent of the evil slave trading Dutchman? Or will Lilly’s saviors arrive too late?


Author Barbara Taylor Sanders, B.A., is also an advocate and an award-winning artist. As a member of the National League of American Pen Women, she is actively involved with professional writers, artists and musicians in SW Florida. For decades, she’s been a tireless advocate for the poor and disadvantaged, especially single mothers struggling to better their lives. Her lifelong passion is to share the love of Christ Jesus through book publications and creative evangelical outreach to the lost and forsaken of the world.

Blood Moon Redemption

Join the blog tour for Blood Moon Redemption, an end-times thriller. This tour will run October 28th through November 3rd. Sign up now!

A Note from Kell: Ooh, End Times! Am I the only one who enjoys learning about Revelation and what all it could mean, etc.?


Throughout history, blood moons have always been surrounded by persecution and provision, great trials and triumphs. The first set of blood moons in 1493-1494 provided a new world for the Jewish people. The second gave them Israel in 1949-1950, and the third presented them Jerusalem in 1967-1968. Now a fourth set of blood moons is on the horizon, and young Jewish lawyer Tassie’s mother is certain they will bring about great change.

Tassie, named for a lost religious relic, has her sights set on her career and love, and she doesn’t believe in silly children’s stories. Dismissing the blood moons as just circumstance, her unbelief threatens to keep her from her destiny. When Tassie finds herself in the center of worldwide turmoil and a terrorist plot, can she accept her family history and fulfill her place in the future of Israel? Or will the country of her heritage finally fall to its many enemies?

Blood Moon Redemption is an end-times thriller that will keep you riveted until the very last moonrise.


Blood Moon Redemption is Judy DuCharme’s sixth published book. She has received awards from the Florida Christian Writers Conference, Best New Writer 2013 at Write to Publish, Serious Writer 2018, and 2014 Guideposts Workshop Contest. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, jet-skiing, worshipping the Lord, and spending time with her first grandchild.

Judy is a retired fifth-grade teacher, former Christian radio announcer, and Bible-study teacher who lives in Door County, Wisconsin.

The Reluctant Disciple

Join the blog tour for The Reluctant Disciple, a supernatural End Times thriller. This tour will run November 4th through November 10th. Sign up now!

A Note from Kell: More End Times!


Ryan Kates is the host of an extremely popular cable TV show focused on UFOs, ghosts, and all things that prickle the tiny hairs on the back of your neck. But he’s a skeptic himself, that is until bizarre paranormal phenomena rock the planet and, in the process, attack his personal worldview.

With the world spinning rapidly out of control, a former love enters Ryan’s life, and along with her daughter and ex-priest brother, they uncover a demonic conspiracy of biblical proportions. In a dramatic confrontation between faith and the ultimate evil on the world stage, Ryan exposes the world’s false messiah to a worldwide TV audience, culminating in a supernatural encounter far beyond his wildest dreams.

The Reluctant Disciple establishes a credible connection between End Times biblical prophecy and our society’s fascination with the paranormal, taking readers on a thrill ride they won’t soon forget.


Jim O’Shea is a graduate of the University of Missouri in Columbia, and traveled the world for twenty-five years in the computer software industry. He now crafts suspense novels that tackle the complex relationship between science and religion, with the goal to take his readers to places they may not have previously considered.

And My Own Blog Tour!

If you didn’t notice, I’m running blog tours every week in October … except one.

So, say you in your innocence, are you taking a break that week?

I wish.

Actually, I’m hosting a blog tour for Beyond Her Calling!

Beyond Her Calling

Beyond Her Calling, a Christian historical romance, is launching October 20th with a blog tour! The tour will run October 20th through October 27th, and we’d love to have you participate!

Though this novel is a part of a series, it can function as a standalone.


At twenty, Ivy Knight feels as if she hasn’t accomplished anything of worth. Her life stretches on before her, empty and pointless. Though her faith in God and her mental abilities have been strengthened, she still doubts herself. Does God have a purpose for a socially awkward, often confused and frightened young woman?

Jordy McAllen has just returned to Scotland after his education in London. Though he has accomplished a lot for a farm lad such as himself, he fears that what everyone has always said about him may be true: he won’t really make a good doctor. Determined to prove himself, Jordy snatches up the opportunity to become the doctor in the village of Keefmore near his parents’ farm.

Helping Jordy with his work at Keefmore seems like the perfect opportunity for Ivy. Still, she doubts herself. Is there a purpose to Ivy’s life?


-friendship to romance
-which is actually based on love
-mental disabilities rep
-no, these are supposed to be good things
-cows (and being afraid of cows)
-small adorable children
-more Scotland
-Peter/Ivy sibling adorableness

 What Else I’m Doing in October and November

    1. Work is gonna be busy in October. Ugh.
  2. Prepping for NaNo.

    1. Help.
  3. Editing and all the other publication prep.

  4. Writing 100,000 words on November.

    1. But if you shoot me first, I won’t have to.
    2. *hands you a gun*
    3. *points it at my head*
    4. *puts your finger on the trigger*
  5. Planning for Reveries Co.

    1. It’s gonna take a lot of work.
  6. Outlining for the five books I’m writing next year.

    1. Hehe.
    2. If you could shoot me before THEN, even, that’d be fantastic.

And that’s “it.”

What are you doing in October?  How ’bout November? What are your goals for the next couple months? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? Perhaps you’re a blogger willing to take on one of these dates? 😝 Sorry, y’all. That’s just where my priorities are right now …

What do you think of my thoughts?

    1. Haha, I noticed that too… all first three titles have “blood” somewhere in there. XD Very strange, Kell…

      Whoa, you’re a busy gal next moth! *sends you energy* (and also NO can we not have you get shot? [the inner grammar/sentence person in you probably died just then but it’s okay :P] because I love your stories and they’re fantastic and awesome so don’t die pls)

      1. IT’S BECAUSE I’M A MURDERER. (okay, not really …)

        I am! 😛 Awwwwww, thank you, Lilian! 😀 I’m glad you don’t want me to die … even though it would be a mercy … 😉

  1. Hey Kell, I just wanted to let you know, that on the Blood Moon Redemption form the dates say “October 1” and stuff, but you said the tour is starting Oct 28? right? So I was thinking the “October” was supposed to say, “November” – if so, I just thought you’d like to know!

  2. Just a quick note: there’s a cover up there for Beyond Her Calling, and I’m not sure if it’s the real one or just a place holder cover for now. 😛 I’ve signed up for your book tour, by the way! 😉 I’ll buy the entire series someday!! (when I am a rich author and can actually afford all these books! 😂)

  3. Haha, I know all the stress what with NaNoWriMo and all that… especially since my word count goal is the number IMPOSSIBLE. 🙂
    Also, please don’t die. I just found you!!!! :((((
    Okay I’m gonna go freak out now bye

    1. It is stressful. What’s your word count goal this time??!

      ALSO: HIIIII!!!!!! I’m so glad you did find me! <3 and okay, I'll try not to die until you've been here a while ... 😛

  4. You really want to know what my word count goal is?? *Goes to site to find word count goal because* *Has conveniently forgotten what word count goal is*
    Right, um, *gulps* *dies* it’s 120,000 words?
    (Okay, kill me now)

  5. I’m doing bookish Blogoween and Blogmas with some other blogger friends, AND I’m still going to try to do Nano, so I know I’m probably going to fail miserably cuz I’ll be busy with blogging and Thanksgiving and life as usual, but oh well. XD

      1. Haha thanks. XD I’m planning to just work on finishing my draft from last year and outlining new things and just trying to take it easy and hopefully get a good word count that way by doing multiple things….or you know end up making zero progress at all. It could go both ways. XD

        Oh btw I tagged you for the Fall Time Cozy Time Tag if you’re interested. 🙂

  6. So many good books and I want to sign up for ALL of them……But my schedule is already so full *weeps*.

    I’ve considered doing NANOWRIMO, but I’m going to be out of town for most of November, so I’d probably just be setting myself up for failure….However…October might be possible so I may start *my* NaNoWriMo today lol We’ll see!

    Good luck to all your endeavors!

    1. Haha! 😛 I wish you could, too. 😉

      Ooh, that’s a neat idea! I personally need to just outline like a madwoman this month … in between publications, that is.
