Captivated Gifts – a platform for Christian authors and craftspeople

Captivated Gifts

is a brainchild of Anna Jensen. She created this group a matter of weeks ago and it is exciting to see it developing. Do read on and learn what it’s about, and pay the site a visit. It is particularly relevant for South Africans because of shipping and financial issues.

Description of the venture from Anna:

Captivated Gifts is a platform for Christian authors in South Africa to showcase their books. Many hours are spent by these authors as they faithfully use their talents to put words onto pages, and yet getting the results of those hours into the hands of readers isn’t always so easy. It’s time to change that.

​Other artists and craftspeople can find themselves in a similar situation, with beautifully created pieces unable to reach those who will be delighted by them.

Captivated Gifts is a carefully curated selection of Christian books and other gifts, all lovingly made here in South Africa. Learn about the authors and artists as you browse our unique collection. And come back often, as what’s on offer will change!

​”Just as I am ‘Captivated by the Creator’, so I am captivated by the abundance of creative talent he has given!”

 

What Books and Authors do You Enjoy Reading?

This entry is part 13 of the series Africa Book Safari

Each weekday (including Saturday) we have someone sitting up front with Mr. Africa and he conducts an interview with them. Some days, we'll talk about the Safari instead, like today. Click To Tweet

What do you enjoy reading?

So what do you enjoy reading?

Do you enjoy fiction?

Do you enjoy suspense? Then Lisa Harris has something for you.

Do you enjoy a legal story? Greg MacKinnon has the book for you.

How about romance? Do you enjoy a good love story? Marion Ueckermann and Ashley Winter have great stories for you. And don’t forget about Lynnette Bonner’s historical suspense and Dianne J. Wilson’s mystery set in my own home town of Port Elizabeth.

Or do you prefer non-fiction?

Perhaps you prefer non-fiction. Val Waldeck has a book of true stories, Anna Jenson has a devotional book based on her travels around Africa, and I have a 90-day devotion based on all sorts of different aspects of Africa.

But you don’t have to stick to your usual genre. Open your mind to new ideas. You may find something you really enjoy. Read all the posts. Leave comments on them all. The more comments, the more chance you may win a free book, or you may spot a special offer. Grab the opportunity to read something out of your usual choice and you may be surprised!

This blog hop is also an opportunity to get to know a bit about the authors and what they write. So don’t miss a post on the blog hop! And certainly attend the Africa Book Safari Weekend as often as you can!
