Release Day and Interview with Ruth


Who doesn’t like a birthday party? I certainly do! November 19th was the third birthday of my debut novel, A Mighty Fortress. To celebrate, there are all sorts of fun going on. First, I released a newly revised version of A Mighty Fortress. Second, I have most of my published books on sale. Third, today is the release of the box set of all five of her novels and it has a special discounted price! And fourth, but not least, I will soon have an audiobook of her debut novel available! Read on for more party fun.

Hymns of the West: The Complete Series


Faith also just released her first box set, the complete Hymns of the West series. It’s available for a special discounted pre-order price until November 26th and will stay at that price until November 30th.

About the Book

Two Families…
The Brookings family move from Illinois to Montana to start a horse ranch. Their journey to Montana has hazards of its own, as does their life in Castle City, affecting each of them in various ways.
The Stuarts have been living a secluded life in Tennessee since the matriarch of the family died. When Jed runs away, they seclude themselves even more until a letter arrives that changes their lives—one at a time—forever.

Two Worldviews…
One family has believes in God with their whole hearts, living out their lives to the glory of God. The other family believes in God in a general sense, but they have no commitment toward Him or His ways.

One Providential God.
A stagecoach robbery instigates their meeting. Two years later, they meet again. Another year and their lives cross paths again. What happens when God’s providence brings two families with two different worldviews together in ways only He could have planned?

 Something Fun

This is something fun I put together for my Facebook party November 19th, but I wanted to share it with you, too. Please feel free to share what name you ended up with. I’m Charlotte Miller from Soda Springs, I.

About the Author

author-picture-2015-2016-bFaith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. (The picture doesn’t show it well, but there are scribblings on the page of Green Eggs and Ham). Now that she has grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.

When she isn’t writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana, someday to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.

There are many ways to connect with Faith online. All of them can be found in one convenient place: On her website you can find links to her various social media sites and both of her blogs.

Interview with Ruth

I’m pleased to announce that Ruth is with us today. Ruth is in three of the Hymns of the West books, A Mighty Fortress (supporting character), Lily of the Valley (main character), and The Solid Rock (minor character). Today we’ll be talking to her as if she were in about the middle of A Mighty Fortress.

Faith: Hello, Ruth and welcome to my blog.

Ruth *waves* Hello, everybody.

Faith: I’ve got a couple of questions for you. Here’s the first one. If you could do anything with your life, what would it be?

Ruth: Hm. That’s a hard question. I would probably try to help children who have no one else to help them.

Faith: That’s so sweet. *looks down at notes* Let’s see. I know you like to write in your diary. Have you ever thought about writing a book?

Ruth: No, I haven’t. I don’t think I would have the patience for that.

Faith: It’s more about ideas than patience, but that’s okay. If you could meet anyone past, present, or future, who would you want to meet?

Ruth: And I thought the first question was hard. I’m going to say Queen Esther. She was courageous in so many ways. I wish I could be more like her.

Faith: Thanks for being with us today Ruth!

Ruth: You’re welcome.
