I need some questions and fast (thus the second post in one day). I have a character interview I want to do for my main character of my soon-to-be-released book, “All the Way My Savior Leads.” Is there anything you would like to ask Henry Salisbury? If you don’t know the story at all, but have a question that could still apply to any character of any Historical Fiction book, feel free to chime in.
You can either comment below, email me, or use the contact form to the left.
Here’s the description of the book if that helps at all:
Caroline and I walked out the back door and went into the barn. “What are we going to do?” Caroline asked. “Head out on our own. Saddle Whitey, please.” Caroline’s mouth gaped open. “They’ll find us.” “I know.” Caroline sighed. “What can we do then?” I shook my head. “We can stick together. Always.”
Tragedy stole everything from him … except her …
Three years ago, an illness orphaned Henry and Caroline Salisbury. The harsh years at the orphanage have forged a strong bond between the pair.
But Henry’s about to age out.
He must choose whether to leave his only family behind in relative safety, or take her with him as he pursues dreams of owning a farm. Henry trusts that God has a plan for him, but little does he know that others have plans for him and his younger sister as well. He will need all his faith to find the right path.
I’m looking for people to read and review one or two of my books. The sooner after publication that you post the review, the better, but I understand that you may not have a lot of time. All you have to do is sign up here or with the form below (same thing, just one is a link and the other is embedded in case the embedded one doesn’t work).
I’m having a Birthday Bash Blog Tour for A Mighty Fortress’s third birthday coming up very, very soon (as in it starts in 2 days!!!). As part of that tour, I want to do a fun, candid interview on my blogspot blog with questions from whomever. This will be posted on November 25, 2016.
I have recently been asked questions about how I published my books and if I have any advice on that. This has led me to a decision. I am going to write a blog series on the self-publication process. This series will include:
Resources I have used and recommend
Resources I have used and do not recommend
How to become an independently published author
My publishing journey
And probably more
Before I can really do this, I need your help. Do you have any specific questions you would like to have answered about the self-publication process? If so, either comment with your question(s) or email me at email@example.com and I will add your questions to my ever growing list.
Thank you and I look forward to sharing with my journey with you.
I have a dilemma. I have three book cover ideas to choose from for Amazing Grace, but I can’t decide which one I like better or looks more consistent with the first two. That’s where you come in. I posted something on Facebook and Google +, but there is an almost two-way tie. That’s where you come in.
First, the blurb:
Caleb hurried to the post office. He had to get in and out before his sister finished at the general store. “Any mail for the Stuarts?” He asked the post master.
The post master took a lazy look at him over the top of his eyeglasses and gave a heaving sigh. “Yep. Somethin’ from Ohio and somethin’ from Montana.”
Caleb waited until the large man put the letters lazily in his hand. As he left he wondered why Anna had written something to Montana. None of my business. He folded and stashed the Ohio letter in his back pocket. It would get wrinkled, but at least Anna wouldn’t know about it.
As Caleb struggles through some inner battles, he secretly starts a correspondence with a widow and her daughter. Their unabashed faith in God convicts him and increases his inner struggles.
Unable to find a steady job, Maggie places an advertisement to become a mail-order bride. Her daughter, Rachel, is her motivation and encouragement, but if Maggie doesn’t find a job or husband soon, Rachel might not survive through the next year.
Can Caleb learn to trust God despite his past? Can Maggie and Rachel hold onto their faith despite all their trials? What will happen when they meet in person?
I need your help. For my upcoming cover reveal blog tour, I am writing four guest posts and can only think of ideas for three. I would like to keep them all either writing, Western, or book related.
This is where you come in. Is there a question you have always wanted to ask an author? Is there something you would like to know about the process of writing and/or editing? Is there something about the Old West that you have always been curious about and I might know something about it? Is there something (no spoilers allowed) that you would like to know about my series?
Please feel free to come up with any kind of blog post idea and/or question for me to answer in a blog post. It will be paired up with an author interview, so the topic doesn’t have to be terribly lengthy. If you have an idea and/or question, please comment below. If I get a lot of responses, I might make it into a blog series after the cover reveal or as part of my book release tour. 🙂
Thank you very much. I look forward to reading your ideas.
Each year, Amazon hosts a contest for the Breakthrough Novel of the year. I have decided to enter the contest. But, before I can do that, I need to polish up a pitch for my book. That is where you come in. I have a rough draft written up. What I need to know from you is what you think of it. For those of you who have read A Mighty Fortress, does the pitch describe the book accurately and well without giving too much away? For those of you who have not read the book, does the pitch make you want to read more? For everybody, is there a word missing, a sentence that needs to be reworded, or something else that doesn’t seem quite right? Continue reading →
