Since 1990, I’ve been randomly collecting Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series. I believe the first one I bought was Book Two, The Great Hunt. It was a Tor First Edition soft cover, and I couldn’t help myself. If memory serves, hit and miss these days, I found it at one of the Library sales put on once a year in the city I lived in at the time. I could fill a grocery bag, brown paper at that time, full for only $2.00. The Great Hunt was in one of those bags that day.

Ever since, as I stumbled over other books in the series, I’d think, why not? Part of the collection even though I haven’t read it yet. Right? Right. Over the years, my Robert Jordan library of Tor’s The Wheel of Time has grown to all 13 books in the series plus the un-numbered prequel (The Eye of the World), and The World of Robert Jordan‘s The Wheel of Time.  

So, long story short, Brandon Sanderson, a fantasy author himself, was commissioned to complete the series when Robert Jordan died. The last book in the series, A Memory of Light is scheduled for release on January 08, 2013. It will be number 14 and the final book in the series.  Anyway, all this because this morning I saw this delicious ebook cover of the Towers of Midnight, and Holy Moly, it is astounding! Raymond Swanland drew the cover, and I’m thinking, Tor should have used Swanland’s art instead of the tepid covers we see on the hardcover releases.


The ebook cover has depth of emotion. Shivers, and I haven’t even read these books yet. Oh yeah you read right, collecting since 1990, one book away from owning the entire series, and I haven’t read a one. I most certainly will now, notwithstanding ….

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
