Let me put the schedule here for you so you remember to come back for more fun to come today! Great way to spend a Monday, imo. :-)

I've got a fun surprise for you right now. (Not that it isn't much of a surprise anymore considering you saw her name in the title line. ;-) I loved her debut novel, Fairer Than Morning. So I am excited to present to you today...Rosslyn Elliott!

What is your most memorable party moment?

A few years ago, my husband and I hosted a Victorian Christmas party including costumes, food, and games. One of the games was a popular theater game called “Blink Murder,” in which a secret “killer” blinks at people standing in a circle and “kills” them while a detective tries to figure out who is committing the crime. My favorite moment was when one of our guests, a dainty and lady-like woman I had just met, “died” with a theatrical gargle and fell over the couch doing a great impression of a limp corpse! Talk about unexpected fun. J

Who’s on your personal VIP party guest list?

Horses. LOL! Is that strange enough? But I really do love horses, so my idea of the perfect birthday party would be to go on a pony trekking trip with my daughter and some good friends, explore new territory like hills and rivers, maybe camp for a night with the horses, roasting marshmallows. 

Complete this thought: 
The perfect party isn’t perfect without:  LOVE. The best parties I’ve ever attended have been full of love and joy, no matter what was served or how the house was decorated.

A party with horses as the VIP sounds like a party I would love. ;-) want to know what you're entering for today??

(Remember all contest winners will be announced on SATURDAY, so if the link is still live at the top of the screen, you can still enter. :-))

Oh what fun! I'm lovin' it! Hope you are too. :-))

  7. Thanks so much for having me, Casey! I agree, Katie, this is the best blog party I've ever seen. :-) And thanks for your kind comments about my debut novel! I can't wait to hear what you think about the second. One of the best things about publication is all the new friends I've met through it--we naturally have a lot in common because of our faith and our love of the written word.

    So glad to be a part of the fun, and bopping along to the happy music as I type. I'll be sure to tweet and send people over so no one misses out.

    I would love to read Fairer Than Morning, by Rosslyn Elliott. I hadn't heard of her before your blog. I am always looking for a new author of Christian Fiction, so I hope I win this one.

  15. That Victorian Christmas party sounds fun! Thanks for the chance to win "Fairer than Morning" --it's been on my book wish list for several months now. =)

  17. So I'm totally checking out your book on amazon and if I don't win it, I'll have to buy it! It looks awesome! Ps. I want to play blink murder...that sounds like a great game.

  18. I enjoyed Rosslyn's description of her Victorian party. Years ago, I hosted a Victorian themed dinner as a fundraiser for my church building fund. My sister and I dressed in old clothes that had belonged to our grandmother and served the meal. It was a lot of fun, as well as a lot of work!
    "Fairer Than Morning" has such a lovely cover. However, I do not need to be entered to win a copy since I already have one.


  19. Hi, I'm finally back!! I would love to read Fairer Than Morning! Love the cover and this party! New author for me!

  20. Oh, I love horses too. I had a pony while I was growing up, and found out that I was allergic to them. That didn't stop me from spending time with her though!

  25. ROSSLYN, thank you for taking part in the celebration. And I completely agree with what you said, I have been SO BLESSED in the people I have gotten to know and the great authors I have been able to support and fall in love with--you included! It's authors like you that I want to bend over backwards to give you the best promotion I can!

    I'm glad for the excitement for Rosslyn's book too! She's my Cold Call Author on Friday, so don't miss it!

    FAIRER THAN MORNING is a great book and I'm so excited for SWEETER THAN BIRDSONG. Rossyln is very talented and I hope the winner loves the book like I did!
