Hey Donna.

Not sure if you're still updating the Listmania Blue Boarders Books list #3.

When I first added my second book, Don't Get It Twisted I did not have the Amazon link.  But now I do and it just hit me that I never provided it.  It's too late for holiday ordering, but if you're in any sort of continuous update mode, here it is.


#98 - December 20, 2007, 07:49 AM


I don't have a book to add to the list, but love the subject and have added several books to my must read list.  Thanks.

Hola, Donna!   :love 

Thanks so much for giving us this opportunity to add to your list.  It feels great to be in such good company.   :broccoli

Would you please add my Across the Wide River sequel to the list?  Here's the back cover copy from The Light Across the River and the link:

Why couldn’t Father see how wrong it was to keep quiet? It seemed so simple to Johnny. If only people could know how horrible slavery was! If only they knew the great risks men took to be free!

It’s 1837 and the Rankin home continues to be a beacon of freedom along the Underground Railroad. Johnny, the seventh of the thirteen Rankin children, is eager to help his family in their fight for freedom, but his father and his older brother, Lowry, tell him he is too young to keep a secret as important as the Underground Railroad. Johnny knows he should keep his mouth shut, but he cares so much about what his family does that he can’t keep quiet.

Unexpectedly, Johnny finds himself in a position to help a woman named Eliza escape to the North. Will he be able to help her to freedom, or will he let the wrong secret slip out at the wrong time? This intense and touching sequel to Across the Wide River offers another glimpse into a dark period of America’s past, and profiles the courageous and godly people who helped bring slavery to an end.

“This book has everything—history, action, suspense, adventure—all nicely blended in a page-turning story of real people living out their convictions.”
—Susan Marlow   Author, The Circle C Adventure series

Yay, I'm glad you posted that Susan. I woke up this morning thinking I needed to chase down the title of your book. And there it is!

Ooooh, what fun!  Thank you so much, Donna, for putting this together; and thank you Verla, for all your support and dedication.  The Blue Boards are amazing.

I have a new one, too, Donna. PRINCESS PEEPERS will be available Sept. 1st. Here's the link to amazon:

Thanks, Donna!  :hearts :bear2 :love
#113 - August 14, 2008, 05:02 PM

Brianna Bright Ballerina Knight series

Princess Peepers
Multiplying Menace

Whew! Caught up again. And I got to thinking about how Amazon only lets me put 40 books per list, and someone might not see that there are three lists (so far!). So I consolidated the lists into a store where they're all in one place. If you go back to the very first post in this thread, you can find a link. I also changed 'blue boarder' to BlueBoarder since I read the thread about it.  :D

It's nice that we support one another!
