Only three days left until the Counted Worthy release date! Last night I ordered copies for everyone who contributed to the Kickstarter campaign, and I’ve been working on some author interviews for the blog tour. Speaking of the blog tour, Christian Bookshelf Review featured an author interview and book giveaway.
It’s been exciting to share Counted Worthy with some beta readers over the past few weeks and get their feedback. Here’s what they’ve had to say.
Every generation must discover its own storyweavers. Leah Good is one of ours and we are fortunate. Counted Worthy is a thrilling work of inspirational fiction that perfectly complements the message of Do Hard Things. Grab a copy for yourself, grab a copy for a friend, and help spread the word about this phenomenal debut. Counted Worthy belongs in the hands of every Christian teen and story lover in the country. It’s that good. –Brett Harris, bestselling author of Do Hard Things
This is a timely novel during a year that international persecution of Christians has regularly made headlines. –Woody Robertson, co-founder of CollegePlus
Page-turning, tersely written dystopia about the power of words and the ultimate power of THE Word. A great first novel from an author I hope we’ll see more of. –Rachel Starr Thomson, author of The Oneness Cycle, The Seventh World Trilogy, and other novels
Story Quote_Counted Worthy
Counted Worthy is quite possibly the best contemporary Christian fiction I’ve ever read. The strong, beautiful message is clearly conveyed without the slightest bit of preaching; something exceedingly rare in today’s Christian market. The premise, both unique and familiar, shines like a candle in the dark, forcing you to re-evaluate just how far you’d go with your faith. Ultimately, it instills a desire to follow God to the end of this world. Eagerly awaiting Miss Good’s next novel! –Catsi E, reader
Radical. Intense. Compelling. Leah Good’s dystopian novel, Counted Worthy, powerfully embodies the message that today’s young people need to hear: the Reason we have to die to self, pursue the impossible, and when all else fails, to stand. This is the message that has the potential to turn a generation of complacency into a generation of inspiration. –Melody van Achterberg, reader
Intense. Even if you’re not religious, you can still find appreciation, inspiration, and will wait in anticipation reading this novel. –R. Stars, reader
