    Greetings Mandy Al-Bjaly,

    I am the author of “Sterling Bridge,” an historical fiction film novel (a short 140 page read) about a little known story of a true Utah hero during the Great Depression. It is being published by Cedar Fort in November. Although I am a first-time author, Cedar Fort tells me they anticipate a great family story like this, for all ages, will have wide appeal.

    Your blog caught my attention, but I couldn’t find the contact information, and I would like to give you one of the first looks at my book by offering you a free copy in exchange for your honest review. We are looking for some great blogs like yours to feature as part of a blog tour. Would you be interested? How many followers do you have (blog+social media)?

    The blog tour will run beginning November 10 through November 26 (Thanksgiving Day). Is there a day you prefer over another? We will hope to assign two blogs per day, and spots will fill up quickly.

    Please respond by Friday. Cedar Fort will want to send you a pdf (or possibly print) copy of my book to you right away so you will have time to read it before the date assigned you.

    Thank you much,

    Chad Robert Parker
    “Sterling Bridge”

    P.S.—I’m sending this out at the earliest that Cedar Fort has advanced copies available. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience if you have time constraints during the tour period, but are still interested in reviewing my book at a later date.

    I’m looking for really good uplifting movies for adults . Do you have a list please ?

      Hi Carol! Thanks for your kind words. I wish I did have a list of excellent uplifting movies. We actually have an app called Living Scriptures, though, and there are excellent uplifting movies in the app. It is less than $10 a month and they constantly add new movies, all clean and with good messages. A lot of the movies are also on Amazon Prime too. I hope that helps. 🙂
