Hear ye, hear ye! Here's your chance to contribute to a wonderful cause this holiday season--and come away with the work of some of your favorite authors!

One year ago, author and editor Sandi Rog had a big day approaching--the release of her first novel, The Master's Wall. Set in first-century Rome, this is an epic story of faith and love. But the very day her book released, Sandi's life shattered--she learned she had a very aggressive cancer, t-cell lymphoma.

The past year has been a huge struggle for Sandi and her family as she underwent chemo, radiation, and bone marrow transfusion. Just when she thought she had this beast beat, she learned that in fact the cancer is still present. So they're trying a new treatment . . . this one not covered by insurance.

Sandi's friends, both neighbors and online, have rallied together to try to help the Rog family, and Alison Strobel Morrow has developed a marvelous plan. She's hosting a raffle fundraiser whose proceeds will go to the Rogs, with a goal of $20,000. The items to be raffled are all donated, and tickets are $5. You can purchase as many as you want and apply as many tickets per prize basket as you like.

The basket you see above has been assembled by the Colonial Quills, many of whom are dear friends of this dear woman--we have put together a complete box of goodies to be raffled off! The raffle will begin on November 25th, and the CQ items include:

* A copy of Highland Crossings, signed by contributing author Gina Welborn 
* A Pampered Chef knife and; dual sharpener - the knife being the favorite utensil of the confectioner heroine of Gina's story, and who wants a dull one? 
* A signed copy of The Chamomile by Susan F. Craft * A packet of chamomile seeds & a packet of chamomile tea 
* A mobcap 
* A $15 Starbucks gift card 

And that's not the only basket I have my hand in! For some great historical fiction plus an amazing gift certificate opportunity, check out this one:

This one includes:

*Jewel of Persia by yours truly - Digital AND Print
* A Stray Drop of Blood by me as well - Digital AND Print
* A Stray Drop t-shirt that reads "One little drop to soil the garment / One little drop to cleanse the soul" (S, M, L, XL available)
* Dance of the Dandelion by Dina Sleiman - Digital AND Print
* Shadowed in Silk by Christine Lindsay - Digital AND Print
* Love Amid the Ashes by Mesu Andrews
* And a $50 gift certificate to the Greek Jewelry Shop!

To get in on the fun and also have the joy of helping a family in need of our prayers and support, please visit to view these baskets and many more! Bidding will begin Thanksgiving week!! Have items you'd like to donate to the cause? Check out the information page at the fundraiser blog. (Individual items will be gathered into "baskets" by the coordinator.)

THANKS Roseanna for letting us know about this Fundraiser for Sandi Rog. I read her book The Masters Wall. It is powerful. Sandi's book was an ACFW Pick last year. She is an inspiration and I'm glad everyone is doing this.

Sandi has a new book being released next year called WALKS ALONE.


Book Jacket Copy: 
Cheyenne warrior bent on vengeance. A pioneer woman bent on fulfilling a dream. 
–Until their paths collide.

After fleeing her abusive uncle, Anna is determined to reach the city of her dreams. 
But White Eagle and his fierce warriors take her prisoner. Anna attempts a harrowing escape, 
but her savage captor is determined to have her at all costs and forces her to be his wife. 
Has God forgotten her, or does He have plans of His own?

A man with a boot in one world and a moccasin in the other, White Eagle is disillusioned with his 
faith after a minister leads a massacre on his peaceful tribe. Where is his God? He's definitely 
not with the white men who are slaughtering his people. But White Eagle also can't give in to the 
idolatry practiced by his fellow tribesmen. Only the Truth can set him free. And it's found in 
beautiful Anna's carpetbag.
