Remember When . . . I Signed Circle of Spies?

As some of you may recall from my 30 Days of Giveaways over the summer, I come up with a unique message to use in signing each of my books--and as I now have cases of Circle of Spies in a corner of my bedroom, it's time to decide what to write in those! I like it to be a sort of prayer or benediction for my readers, relevant to the book. Here are the ones I've been using for my other books:

A Stray Drop of Blood
May His touch leave you forever changed.

Jewel of Persia
May the Lord be your Light.

Love Finds You in Annapolis, Maryland
May you find true Liberty in Him.

Ring of Secrets
May you hear Him in the echoes of silence.

Whispers from the Shadows
May His whisper guide your steps.
(This one was recommended by one of YOU!)

So here we are again, ready to come up with a new one! And I'm pairing it with a giveaway. Make a recommendation and be entered to win one of FIVE signed copies of Circle of Spies (the first of these I've given away!!). Make one that I end up choosing verbatim, and you'll win a signed copy PLUS one of my other books. Or if you have my other books already, you'll win a copy of the book of prayers that is featured throughout the series. And if you already have that, too...then we'll get creative, LOL.

Now, to help you in your recommending, here are some key aspects and themes of the book:

Memory (Marietta has a perfect one--and no, I do not, LOL.)
Prodigal sons/daughters
Redemption
Freedom (both of the soul and physical freedom from slavery)
Family legacy
Family (as in, finding one)
Brotherhood
Embracing the gifts God has given you

Enough to get you started? I hope so! And please spread the word! (Paperback books eligible only to US mailing addresses--however, internationals are welcome to enter for a digital prize!)

  1. How about "May you always remember Him" or "May you always allow Him to set you free".

    I'm always so impressed with your writing Roseanna. It would be fun to sit down and chat with you again like old times. :)

    1. Aw, thanks, Eleanor! That would be lovely!!! If ever you make it back to the east coast, you should let me know. =)

  2. "May you always know the freedom gained by His grace through salvation." Or...
    "May you be united to Him with inseparable bonds."

    As always, I am looking forward to reading another Roseanna White masterpiece, whether I win or not. :)

  3. May His Word be a lamp to your feet.

  4. May you always live your life remembering your redemption and His mercy.
    - That one is kind of long though. I'm not sure how short you want them. Maybe:
    May you always use your freedom and redemption to bless others.
    May the realization of your redemption free you from the memories of your past,

    Just some suggestions. :) By the way, I convinced my church library to by Annapolis, Ring of Secrets, and Whispers in the Shadows! Plus, the ordered copy of Circle of Spies just came in! I'm still working on getting your two biblical fiction books (and eventually your third one) on our shelves.

    1. Thanks, Rebecca! It's my favorite cover of the series, for sure. They nailed Marietta perfectly! And I had it early enough that I could describe that dress in one scene, and mention the curl a few times. =)

    2. I agree with my friend, Rebecca. It's a great cover and I love that gray dress!

    1. LOL, Annette. Let's say this is why I don't send out Christmas cards anymore...

  19. May you find your true freedom in Christ. I hope this one wasnt mentioned or used already, I didn't read the other comments.

  20. "May you always remember that the freedom of His love is an unending circle"

    That's the best one I could come up with, hope it's not too many words! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. "May His arms be always your safe haven and ever your home."
    "May you be set free by He who has all power."
    "May you love as He first loved you."
    "May your children's children bless His name."
    "May you give all praise, honour, and glory to God, forever. Amen."
    "May you always remember that the Lord is at the heart of everything good."
    "May your love for him be surpassed only by His love for you."
    "May you always remember that true freedom comes from Him."
    "May your bells of freedom ring as you are set free by your King."
    "May His bells of freedom proceed you down the paths of righteousness."

    Oh my goodness I think I cheated. Lol. I'm sure I won't win despite my cheating measures though, so it's all good.

    Jewel of Persia's cover looks so tempting! Have not yet bought it though. I only wish my church library would carry your books! Actually I haven't read any of your books - yet. Hearing good things about them though!

  22. My suggestion is "May you find your true freedom in Him." It is pretty much the same thing that Cindy said above. I tried to come up with something different, but I had already decided on that before I went through the comments, and that is all the creative ability I have! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. "May you never forget the freedom and redemption given through Him."

    Someone probably already commented something similar. There are a lot of good suggestions.

  24. "May you always use your freedom to remember Him."
    So exciting to have another book come out! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. May your memory of His love never falter.

    :) And you know I want the book. Signed. :)

    1. I was going to suggest almost that exact same thing! Obviously, that's the right one ;)

    1. Thanks, Karen! I was so excited that Harvest House let me write his story. I wasn't ready to let go of him after Ring of Secrets! (I know, I know, I'm the author, LOL. But he wasn't supposed to be so good when I first introduced him!) ;-)
