Dark Glass Ponderings

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. -1 Corinthians 13:12

Sorry, I meant to post this yesterday, but it was sort of a crazy news day.  Most importantly an answer to prayer for someone I care about.  Also a matter career wise that I am keeping in prayer for God's will to be done.

Anyway, our giveaway is for Back on Murder.  Here are some links if you want to find out more about this suspense novel.

What a very interesting book this sounds like. Please enter me. No, I have never served on jury duty. Have been called a few times to go in but never served.


This book sounds interesting. No, I've never served on a jury. I've been called a two times but I kept calling the number they gave me and my number never came up so I didn't get picked to go serve.

This book sounds really good. I'd like to read it.

Thanks for putting my name in the hat.

Would love to read this book. I have served on a jury - it was very interesting! The defendant saw the "writing on the wall" and settled for a plea bargain.

Please enter my name for the drawing!


This book sounds very interesting - would love to be the lucky winner.

I have served on jury duty two times. The first time that I served, the defendent committed suicide in his cell the night after his conviction for attempted assault. Such a waste of life! That experience certainly made me reluctant to ever sit on a jury again.


I've heard a lot of good things about this book!!! Would love to read it. No, I have never served on jury duty.

I have never had to serve on jury duty. Every time I get summoned, I had just moved out of that county!

I've been called for jury duty, but never actually had to serve. My husband was sequestered for over a week on a murder trial, though.

I have never served on jury duty - but have always wanted too. I think seeing the case first hand would be interesting. :)

Nope, never been on jury duty. Not that I'm complaining...

I am a long-time fan of mysteries and police procedurals and Mark's book is already on my wish list. I'm so glad to see a book of this type in the Christian fiction genre.

I've been called for jury duty a few times, but only served on a case once - and it was a civil case involving child support.

Thanks so much for the giveaway!

Sure did. Then ruptured a tendon in a soccer game same night, and showed up for jury next day on crutches and full of pain meds. They didn't want me anymore, go figure. This book sounds amazing! Can't wait to read, win or lose.
