Martin Hospitality Cover Reveal!

by - 6:30 PM


Well, look at that. I'm posting a day after everyone else. *cough*

But remember...

(Yes, I do use this as an excuse all the time, thanks
for noticing.)

I actually do have a legitimate excuse (sobbing in a corner taking the SAT and such fun things), but you didn't come to hear that, did you?

NOPE. You came to see the cover of Martin Hospitality!!! Whiiiiich you've probably already seen on the blogosphere somewhere, but hey, I CAN'T HELP SHOWING YOU GUYS. It's just soooo beautiful! *sighs happily*

My good friend Abi Ellison is publishing her novel on February 4th (it will be available on Amazon), and I'M OVER THE MOON WITH EXCITEMENT. EEP. I wasn't one of her beta readers, but I've heard nothing but amazing things about her book.

Without further delay, I present to you the gorgeous cover of Martin Hospitality!

Well? What do you think? Isn't it blissful and dreamy and soothing? (In other words, perfect.) I'm so in love with it right now, and you know you are, too. *nods*

About the Book

Gemma Ebworthy is eighteen, pregnant, and alone. Now that she’s been evicted, she spends the night in a barn, never dreaming that tomorrow could bring kindness of a life-changing magnitude.

The Martins aren’t a typical family—even for rural Kansas. With more kids than can be counted on one hand and a full-time farm, Gemma must make a lot of adjustments to fit in. But despite their many differences, Gemma finds herself drawn to this family and their radical Christian faith.

When Gemma’s past collides with her yet again, she must begin revealing her colorful history. With every detail Gemma concedes, she fears she will lose the Martins’ trust and the stable environment she desires for herself and her unborn child. Just how far can the Martins’ love and God’s forgiveness go?

About the (Beautiful) Author

Abigayle has been inspired to write since she could spell her own name. Her passion wasn’t completing the stories (she did that twice and decided it wasn’t for her), it was jotting down the ideas.

But in 2015, a story grabbed her—one she had to finish. Inspired by a crazy dream in a genre she no longer reads, Abigayle set off on a journey to write her first novel and she hasn’t looked back since.

Writing is her ministry, freelance editing her job, and reading her pastime—all of which prove that God really does know what He’s doing when He inspires a 6-year- old with a pencil in her left hand.


I'm so excited for February 4th! Abi is a wonderful friend and fantastic writer, and I'm so proud of all the work she's poured into creating this masterpiece and fulfilling her dream. <3

In case you couldn't tell...I'm pretty excited. XD Tell me what you think of the cover in the comments below! And don't forget to check out Abi's book on Amazon starting February 4th!
