Christmas Comes Early Blog Tour! My FIRST tour!

Christmas tour

Christmas time is here! Okay, so not quite yet. It's still over a month away, but that doesn't mean we can't start celebrating early, right? So today, we're celebrating the release of not one, not four, but eight new Christmas books! All written by Rebekah A. Morris. I'll be spotlighting two of her books today and you can find out more about the others as you follow the tour.

About the Books

At the Christmas Lodge

When Desirae Richey agrees to go home with some college friends for Christmas, she expects a small family gathering. Instead she is taken to the Christmas Lodge in the snowy mountains of Canada to a noisy, fun loving, adventurous group of family and friends who welcome her as one of their own. Everything seems to be going as planned until an unexpected snowfall occurs.
The Christmas She Wanted
Christmas had lost its charm and wonder. Mrs. Rush hated the feeling but was powerless to fix things. Traveling to visit relatives for the holidays, the Rush children pass the time with their eyes glued to the screens of their devices. That is, until the flashing lights of a State Highway Patrol car bring their trip to a sudden and unplanned-for stop.

About the Author

Rebekah A. Morris is a homeschool graduate, an enthusiastic freelance author and a passionate writing teacher. Her books include, among others, Home Fires of the Great War, The Unexpected Request, Gift from the Storm, and her bestselling Triple Creek Ranch series. Some of her favorite pastimes, when she isn't’ writing, include reading and coming up with dramatic and original things to do. The Show-Me state is where she calls home.


Excerpts:  She gave a sigh. “You know, I wish we could have a real Christmas for a change. ~ The Christmas She Wanted
Des plunged into the glittering white mass and laughed with pure joy. This was snow! ~ At the Christmas Lodge
Bryce's Review: I really enjoyed these two books! They were well written. I'm looking forward to buying some of these stories when I get a kindle. I recommend these books for anyone really. I think they would be great to read to little children as a bedtime story. The vocabulary in them is not too hard but it is hard enough for the content inside. They both made me warm and fuzzy inside and I read them while I was snuggling under a blanket. I rate this 5/5 on the good book scale.
1. How did you get inspired to write about Christmas?
Probably my love of Christmas and growing up reading Christmas stories had the biggest impact on my wanting to write Christmas stories. I don’t think there can ever be too many Christmas stories, and I love adding to the number. :) And as for the inspiration of different stories, you never know what may inspire a Christmas story!

2. Do you write anything other than Christmas stories?
Yes, actually I do. I write many other different kinds of stories. I’ve written a western, some mysteries, a six book series set on a western ranch, a book about WWI, books set in modern times, and books of short stories. As you can tell, I’ve written historical fiction as well as modern. All of my books are family friendly. Meaning that I don’t put graphic scenes in them, or scenes that I wouldn’t want my 10 year old niece reading. One of my newly released books is written more for older readers, and while I wouldn’t mind her reading it, I don’t think she’d find it as interesting.

3. What is your favorite genre?
To read or write? That’s rather a tough question. I enjoy reading many different genres, though there are some I won’t read or write (like is-fi, fantasy,  thriller, or futuristic). Usually I write the kind of books I like to read. My favorites are Christian fiction, Historical fiction, and Christian mystery.

4. What is your favorite book out of At The Christmas Lodge and A Christmas She Wanted?
“At the Christmas Lodge” would probably be my choice of those two books. When I wrote that story, I included many of the things that I only dream of doing. It was also one of my longer short stories so there was more happening in it even if the plot isn’t “exciting” or anything like that. Add to that, I loosely based some of the adults off of people I knew.

5. When did you start to enjoy writing?
When I was in school I hated writing! However, once I had graduated from high school and spent some time writing pretend letters with some friends, I discovered that the world of crafting words could be almost as exciting and interesting as reading an already written book. I started working on my first book, and the rest is lost in thousands upon thousands of written words.

6. How do you make your characters feel all warm and fuzzy inside when you write?
Hmm, I’m not exactly sure. Perhaps it is because I become my characters. I live the story with them, and if I am feeling warm and cozy, it is easier to replicate that feeling in my story. Another thing that helps is the setting. If you don’t have a setting that your characters can relax in, your readers won’t feel it either.

Thanks for having me over, Bryce, and letting me share with you and your readers.

Review: I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World

I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World by Malala Yousafzai
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was great. I really loved the beginning and the middle but the end wasn't that great. It seemed to wrap up too fast. This is the reason the book is getting a four. We read this as a school read but it is my honest review :)

Thanks and have a great day everyone,
Bryce Laser

Hello avid readers of my blog! Would anyone like me to review their book on Goodreads and Amazon? I would be glad to review them if you could send me a pdf of the book.

Genres I'm interested in:
Young Adult
Contemporary Fiction

Yours truly,

500 Blog Views!

Hello avid readers, this is Bryce Laser back for another post. I just saw on the bottom of my blog that i've gotten 500 views. That is a real accomplishment for me.

Books. Books. and more books!

Books, Books, and more books! Goodreads Group
Hello avid readers, how's your day going? Today I'm going to talk about the group on Goodreads called Books, Books, and more books. This group was created by Lydia Clifford, a good virtual friend of mine. It is basically a book club that will hopefully be reading a book next month (December) together. We are still deciding that book. You can participate in many book related games and just chill with your fellow readers. There possibly might be a challenge over the summer where you have to read any book with whatever we say on the cover or in the contents of the book. Plus, better yet, you can give book recommendations! I mean, who doesn't like giving any? I hope you all have an amazing day and if you liked this post I would love if you would comment. I reply to every comment!

Review: Between Shades of Gray

Between Shades of Gray Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great read. Recommended for young adults and adults because there are mentions of prostitution in it. I would recommend this to anyone who likes the era where Hitler ruled Germany because it takes place at the same time in history, just in Lithuania. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments! I'm glad to answer some. No spoilers in comments though, please.

Nanowrimo Day #1 and CWRJ

Soooo, today was the first day of Nanowrimo. I really don't know how I'll manage school and Nanowrimo and blogging but I will sure try! Today I edited the chapter 2 in my novel for Nanowrimo and went to school. I also finished a book today which is why I'm also posting a CWRJ at the bottom of this! Read on for more about this book.

Blogging Calendar... Time to get organized!

Ok, so its about time to get organized :0. I've added a calendar page to my blog or you can view it here! You can see what's posted daily. There will be a minimum of 2 posts each day.



Hello fellow avid blog readers! Hows your day going? Please post in the comments and I will be sure to answer all the comments. So today's topic is Percussion. You may be wondering what is percussion? Percussion is a section of band with musical instruments played by striking with the hand or with a handheld or pedal-operated stick or beater, or by shaking, including drums, cymbals, xylophones, gongs, bells, and rattles.

Nanowrimo Preptober #4 Update

So, I think the first chapter of my work in progress is done! Now, I would love if you would critique it in the comments. So, without farther ado, here is the chapter.

Chapter 1 (First Draft - 403 Words):

      Let's just say... I'm NOT in a good mood. Today is the stupid graduation ceremony and since I'm one of the top graduating students in my class I bet I'll get to be The Highest Apprentice. As I walk into The Quarry Graduation Hall, I am frightened by the fact that I might be The Highest Apprentice in less than 5 minutes. I wish I could just go back to the cold hole in the wall tavern that I live in. I mean, I could really do with a peanut butter and cricket sandwich right now, NOT kidding. I'm a hungry, hungry, hippo.

     "Welcome all to the graduation ceremony here at Quarry School. I will begin by calling students up to the front to receive their job titles. When I call your name please come forward" said Beata, The High Official of Education. At the time of this, Tina is still living on food scraps; she got a free education and because she is so smart she graduates at 13 years old; instead of the usual 15. I think to myself "If I get picked I'm going to kill Beata". I am feeling very angry because I know that The Quarry is an evil place that I am forced to live in but if I don't want to die or be exiled than I must stay here. People wonder why I hate The Quarry so much. It's because The Highest Officials and The Highest Official have killed many people over the years. Not many people know that.

"Domi, Quarry Miner"
"Adam, Quarry Miner"
"Albin, Quarry Miner"
"Danka, Quarry Miner"
"Dosia, Street Sweeper"
"Emilia, Street Sweeper"
"Cyril, Food Production"
"Edmund, Food Production"
"Tina, The Highest Apprentice"

Kids and parents applaud the students who were selected. They are especially proud of me... why ME? I walk up onto the stage to receive my job instructions from Beata. "I never in a million years would have dreamed that I would get this job! It's such... such an honor to be The Highest Apprentice" I said sarcastically. "Lucky me." I mumbled as I walked off the stage and out of The Quarry Graduation Hall. Wow, Dosia is really dumb if he got Street Sweeper as his job. Maybe I should have chose a better person for being in The Quarry Rebellion. Also, I wonder what powers I will get over other people for being The Highest Apprentice.

OMG... aren't these images so cute :)

My Personality Test Results

Hi, I just took the 16personalities test over at I am a INFJ-T Architect. My strategy is constant improvement.  Here is an article I found over at that site.

It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, Architects know this all too well. Architects form just two percent of the population, and women of this personality type are especially rare, forming just 0.8% of the population – it is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with the Architect personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy.
