Carder’s “Insurrection” is the recently released first installment in a three-part series following the remarkable journey of Saylor MacTavish. The young-adult science fiction novel is available for purchase at Hastings, and Portions of the book may be previewed on Carder’s website,, where she also blogs.

Debby Dill for web“Readers will feel a sense of camaraderie with the characters of ‘Insurrection,’” Carder said. “Hopefully, along with Saylor, they will find unexpected adventures and they too are capable of being more than they ever imagined.”

Dill’s “Not So Far Away” is the fourth and latest novel in the Christian-themed “Blithe Settlement” series published by Pelican Book Group. The story is set in a small Central Texas town and follows characters introduced in previous books in the series. Other titles in the series are “Perfect Shelter,” “Return to Me” and “Moving On.” Dill has also written two e-novellas for Pelican Book Group, “Ransomed Hope” and “Ransomed Trust.” Her books and e-novellas are available for purchase at, and

“The message I hope readers take away from all the ‘Blithe Settlement’ books is that, with God, nothing is wasted,” said Dill. “He can redeem the worst of our experiences, and use those things to draw us close and point others to Him.”
