Cut It Out
by Terri Gillespie



I'm so excited that one of my cyber writing friends, Terri Gillespie, released her new book CUT IT OUT this week. I’ve already had an opportunity to read it in advance of its release (I love my job!). It’s wonderful! Because of all this excitement and wonder, she is offering to give away a copy of her book, you can choose either print or ecopy. All you have to do is leave a comment and your name will be randomly chosen. Make sure to leave your email address so I can get in touch with you. You don’t want to miss this great read!

Here is my review of CUT IT OUT and a few words from Terri:

This is my second go–round with the Mavens. While I did find the first book a little difficult to get into (probably because of too many distractions in life!) I had no trouble whatsoever with Cut It Out. It pretty much began right where book 1 left off.

The new Hair Mavens Salon is about to open and everything is falling into place…almost. A receptionist is suddenly needed. The salon manager Shira hired doesn’t seem to be getting along with the other mavens. Katya, who has come out of her shell, is insistent on the salon getting involved in some silly organization, and Shira just does not have time for that! Then there’s Jesse. *Sigh*

One of the things I loved most about this story is the camaraderie amongst the women. So needed, yet so lacking, in our society today.

This is definitely a great read, especially if you’ve already read She Does Good Hair. If you haven’t, you need to.

Thanks to Terri for allowing me to read your book before many others get a chance. Job well done!

A Word from the Author:

This may seem a tad grandiose, but my reason for writing The Hair Mavens’ series was because of Jesus’ prayer in John 17. He prayed that the Jewish disciples would first be one with one another, then He prayed for those who would come to faith through their words—those of the nations—would be one as well—Jew and Gentile, one in Messiah. I really wanted to be part of the answer to that prayer. Pretty presumptuous, right?


But the really cool thing is that the first example of this type of unity was two women—Ruth and Naomi—a Moabite and a Jew. Their beautiful story of unity is why I write the stories I write. Women who become sisters in Jesus—what could be better?

    1. Thanks for stopping by and entering! The mavens are learning what unity looks like among a group of very different, very strong women. Always good to have lots of grace and a sense of humor, right? ;-)

  8. Unfortunately as Christian women, that is one thing I think is lacking. I try to be better about it, but I'm not always successful. I'll let you know who wins the free copy tomorrow!
