Sustainer’s Smile Cover, Preorder, and Sale!

Sustainer’s Smile (Truth from Taerna #4) by Erika Mathews is now available for preorder in EBOOK and SIGNED PAPERBACK! It will be released on October 21, 2021!

Sustainer’s Smile is a kingdom adventure pro-life novel. It’s clean and Christian. And it’s my favorite book I’ve ever written. It addresses topics near to my heart, and the characters! I can’t wait for you to read it.

Also, I LOVE the cover…!

This launch will hold an exciting opportunity! In honor of Respect Life Month in October, Ryana Lynn and I are co-releasing our pro-life novels Sustainer’s Smile and To Save a Life! We are organizing a blog tour to scatter pro-life posts around the internet that month – and we’re aiming for 64 bloggers to commemorate the 64 million unborn lives lost since Roe v. Wade. If you have a blog or otherwise want to help, please join the Official List here for more information. And please help by spreading the word!


A helpless newborn . . . that’s exactly how twenty-four-year-old Liliora Ellith feels in her efforts to speak up on behalf of the youngest members of Taerna’s pleasure-driven society. Her tender heart for the defenseless and deep aversion to conflict throw Liliora’s soul into turmoil when tragedy opens her eyes to the quiet yet heartrending war on Taerna’s babies—both born and unborn. Adon Olam’s word coupled with a secret in her own past fuel her determination, but the challenges ahead of her threaten to send her spiraling into hopeless depression. At the very end of herself, can her own utter insufficiency be anything less than the catalyst for complete disaster?
