Weekend Book Buzz – 1/2 April 2017

Hello readers, and welcome to another edition of the Weekend Book Buzz. This is going to be a shorter edition today because I’m flat strapped getting some editing finished, but fear not! Next week’s edition will come with a whole lot of new ebook sales for April, and all the other news about what’s going on in Christian fiction.

Here’s what’s happened right here at Fiction Aficionado this week:

The Memory of You meme   Miramar Bay meme

Top Ten Tuesday – Authors I Would Love to Meet
Word Nerd Wednesday – Kismet
First Line Friday – The Patriot and the Loyalist (Angela K. Couch)

As always, you can click on the graphic to be taken to the home page for each tour, where you’ll find the schedule for the blog tour, giveaways, and more. The blog tour for Such a Tease wraps up on Monday, but the other tours continue through to next week:
