Lost Genre Guild - Website

Lost Genre Guild – http://www.lostgenreguild.com/ 

Here Dear Readers is a huge amount of thinks to look up! 
Lots and lots of book reviews, books you can order, books you can read some of. PDF's and frankly there was so much I got lost a few times! LOL! 

"Lost Genre Guild" focus on books that have "Biblical Speculative Fiction". That means things that are what if you open your mind far enough to think about a book about another Planet? Time Travel? A Planet that hasn't been discovered yet? In my way of thinking, these books will have the what if these other planets know God? What would they know or not know? This little description is just a tiny part of  what "Lost Genre Guild" strives to bring their readers. 
The works they feature have entertainment with a Scriptural framework. In short, right up my "alley"! I love Sci-Fi, and always will! Somethings that are called "horror" to me are just people who are seeing in the Spirit realm more than others. But in my life, God is there in all of it. 

I would love to read some of the books listed on this site one day! 
Go check it out and see if you find a gem you were looking for that was "lost" before!

Hello Everyone! 
This was a sweet fast, easy to read book. A gentle romance with some suspense, and plenty of intrigue. I enjoyed the settings, and it is just a sweet book.

Engaging Father Christmas

Robin Jones Gunn

Robin grew up in Orange County, California and has lived in all kinds of interesting places, including Reno and Hawai’i.

She and her husband currently live near Portland, Oregon and have been married for 30 years. They spent their first 22 years of marriage working together in youth ministry, and enjoying life with their son and daughter who are now both grown.

As a frequent speaker at local and international events, one of Robin’s favorite topics is how God is the Relentless Lover and we are His first love. She delights in telling stories of how God uses fiction to change lives.

Robin is the recipient of the Christy Award, the Mt. Hermon Pacesetter Award, the Sherwood E. Wirt Award and is a Gold Medallion Finalist. She also serves on the Board of Directors for Media Associates International and the Board of Directors for Jerry Jenkins’ Christian Writers’ Guild.


Miranda Carson can't wait to return to England for Christmas and to be with her boyfriend, Ian. She has spent a lifetime yearning for a place to call home, and she's sure Carlton Heath will be it, especially when a hinted-at engagement ring slips into the conversation.

But Miranda's high hopes for a jolly Christmas with the small circle of people she has come to love are toppled when Ian's father is hospitalized and the matriarch of the Whitcombe family withholds her blessing from Miranda. Questions run rampant in Miranda's mind about whether she really belongs in this cheery corner of the world. Then, when her true identity threatens all her relationships in unanticipated ways, Miranda is certain all is lost.

And yet...maybe Father Christmas has special gifts in store for her after all.

Dark Pursuit By Brandilyn Collins

Hi All! 

This was a nice read! Yes, plenty of suspense, even thought I sort of figured things out too soon. I do that, while 95% of the rest of the world, or even 99% don't! Kaitlin was a really good character, but I loved the premise of the "King Of Suspense" being in a situation where he wasn't up to par and yet was faced with his first real life murder issue! It was a very nice read. 
Check it out!

Brandilyn Collins


Brandilyn Collins is known for her trademark Seatbelt Suspense®. She is currently working on her 20th book. For chances to win free copies of her work, join her Fan Club on Facebook. Here’s what Brandilyn has to say about why she wrote Dark Pursuit:

In John Milton’s Paradise Lost Satan’s followers, kicked out of heaven, boast about storming the gates and reclaiming their territory. Beelzebub scoffs at their boasting as merely “hatching vain empires” and suggests a different revengeful scheme: seduce mankind away from God. So Satan visits the Garden of Eden to teach humans the very thing he and his cohorts have learned to be futile—the dark pursuit of hatching their own vain empires instead of following God. He presented man with this “gift” of death, disguised as life. And man fell for it.

Upon this theme of man’s fall and spiritual blindness, I created the characters and events in Dark Pursuit. The story clips along at a fast pace, with much symbolism running underneath.


Dark Pursuit—A twisting story of murder, betrayal, and eternal choices

Novelist Darell Brooke lived for his title as King of Suspense—until an auto accident left him unable to concentrate. Two years later, reclusive and bitter, he wants one thing: to plot a new novel and regain his reputation.

Kaitlan Sering, his twenty-two-year-old granddaughter, once lived for drugs. After she stole from Darell, he cut her off. Now she’s rebuilding her life. But in Kaitlan’s town two women have been murdered, and she’s about to discover a third. She’s even more shocked to realize the culprit—her boyfriend, Craig, the police chief’s son.

Desperate, Kaitlan flees to her estranged grandfather. For over forty years, Darell Brooke has lived suspense. Surely he’ll devise a plan to trap the cunning Craig.

But can Darell’s muddled mind do it? And—if he tries—with what motivation? For Kaitlan’s plight may be the stunning answer to the elusive plot he seeks...
