Gah! I was supposed to post this yesterday. I seem to be living in a time warp lately. On Monday I thought it was Tuesday. I keep messing up the date. I think I need more sleep. My poor brain is so confused.

Anyhow. This is another book that I haven’t had a chance to read yet, but it’s next because I’m really looking forward to it. I enjoyed Ray Blackston’s other book, the title of which is eluding me (brain thing again). It was funny yet also rang true and real. And I’m going to stop typing now because I’m not sure I’m even making sense. So, go read the book (scroll down to read the first chapter).

It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old…or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!
