An author, a giveaway, and a blast from the past....

Alicia Willis is an author and a loyal Scribble Chicks reader. We're so blessed to have her hanging around and contributing with advice and support and prayers and questions. We love our readers!

SO - to show our appreciation, we're featuring Alicia today and her novel Remember the Alamo, available via Amazon Digital Services, that released February 23. 

Here's the summary of the story!

When Pastor Mark Siegler takes his youth group on a midsummer vacation to San Antonio, he anticipates teaching them about honor and sacrifice at the Alamo. But arrival at the historic landmark brings cutting disillusionment. A troubled teen is determined to make things difficult - and spread his embitterment to the rest of the group. 

Mark has two choices: give up or try again. Midst his own discouragement, he decides to give them the story behind the legendary Alamo. And his perseverance results in the unforgettable.

The sweeping events of the Alamo comes to life through the eyes of an 1800's wheelwright named Silas Edwards. As his tale unfolds, his decision becomes a difficult one. Is defending the Alamo so important? Or are the principles behind opposing General Santa Anna worth sacrificing everything for?

Join Private Silas Edwards, David Crockett, William Travis, and Mark's youth group to discover the gripping events behind America's battlecry: "Remember the Alamo!"
