That's because, today I am taking part in a cover reveal for Never Let Go by Angie Brasheer!

Christian Fantasy: A Life-Saving Genre
Definitions of literary genres can be…well, complex. Even tricky. Attempts to define Christian
fantasy vary, though I’ve spent little time fretting over an official definition. I mean, Christian
fiction typically illustrates a Christian world view within its plot, characters, or both. And the
fantasy genre commonly uses myths and legends as a primary plot element, theme, or setting. So,

started with a little seed, planted in the empty heart of the girl I once was. A love for reading
expanded to a love for writing. A desire to know God became a desire to serve Him, to reach
And Never Let Go was born.
In all things, I’m grateful to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for embracing a lost, lonely girl.
