Kiera blog tour

Hi everyone!

I’m so excited to have Kate Willis here today for an interview as part of her blog tour for her new book, Kiera.

When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?

I come from a family of bookworms, so I’ve been interested in reading and writing stories ever since I can remember. 😉 Two big things helped me realized I wanted to become an author. Number one, my older sister Perry Elisabeth Kirkpatrick published her first book, and I got to see the proof copy. That definitely made me want to write my own book. 😀 A few years later, I still had the dream of being an author when my mom suggested that a story I was writing for a younger sister would be enjoyed by other children as well. I published my first book in 2014, and since then I’ve written several more stories and published another one as a book. 😉

What is Kiera about?

It’s cliche of me, but I’ll go ahead and share the official blurb. It explains the book better than I can. 😉

“Kiera is looking forward to her eighteenth birthday. The official end of school, a party with her best friend, and chocolate cake. A sudden military draft, no possible exemptions, had never crossed her mind.

Kiera is terrified! Getting drafted would mean leaving her family, her little friend Jade—life as she knows it.

A surprising offer from Brennan Stewart just might be the answer to her prayers, but an even worse trial leaves her with one question…

If God truly loves her, why did this tragedy happen?”

What inspired Kiera?

When I started writing it, it was simply because it was time for a new story. I decided to write a character close in age to myself since that would be easy. I also had the idea of women possibly being drafted into the military on my mind because it was talked about in the news. Then I posted on my blog that I had written 6,000 words of a novel and wasn’t sure I liked it yet. 😉 Kiera grew into a story about loss, romantic love, God’s love, and pro-life issues. I’m a little bit blown away when I think of what it started out as and where it is now. So what inspired it? A lot of things, basically anything God brought to mind that went with my story. 😉

Who is the book for and what do you want readers to gain from your book?

Kiera was written with young adult Christian women in mind, but it has been enjoyed by many people who don’t fit into this age category. 😉 My mission for this book is to impress upon readers just how strong and unexplainable and deep God’s love for us is. And also to show a picture of human love directly reflecting this. 😉

Have you written any other books and where can we get them?

Thanks for asking! I’ve written two other books, The Treasure Hunt and The Twin Arrows, and published two short stories as Kindle books as well. All of them are available on Amazon. 😉 https://www.amazon.com/Kate-Willis/e/B073R1B9XF

Where can we connect with you?

I am most active on Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/8287893.Kate_Willis) and my blog Once Upon an Ordinary (https://onceuponanordinary.wordpress.com/). I also use Pinterest to keep track of my many story ideas and crafting projects. 😉 My username is onceordinary. I also collect really funny memes.

What tips you have for young aspiring writers?

My favorite answer to this question is–READ. Read all the books you can get your hands on. Read in different genres. Read old books and new books. Keep a journal about what you read and write down what you enjoyed most about the book. What about the writing style was really good? Who was your favorite character? How did the author make them your favorite? If you read a lot and analyze what you read, you’ll wake up one day and realize the story you’re writing isn’t half bad. 😉

Another answer–don’t be afraid to write things no one will ever read. I have 20+ notebooks of scribbly, scrawly, cringeworthy stories that I don’t ever plan on publishing. They were my practice stories, though, and each one counts toward the books I write today. 😉

Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Ask your favorite authors about their journey, their writer’s-block-conquering snack recommendations, and their favorite how-to books.

Enjoy writing, and that’s all for now. 😉 Thanks for having me, Medomfo!

Thanks for being here, Kate 😊

Hello wonderful people!

It’s June, meaning it’s summertime!

A Marvellous Redeemer Blog Tour-Author Q&A

Hello everyone!

I’m so excited to have Aleigha Israel on my blog today for an interview as part of her blog tour for her new book, A Marvellous Redeemer.

Hi Aleigha. When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?

I can’t even remember the first time I started writing. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember! The first time I actually realized that I could publish my writing, and truly become an author, was probably when I was around 15. I published my first poetry book soon after that!

What is A Marvelous Redeemer about?

A Marvelous Redeemer is a story of faith, courage, and God’s unfailing love. It’s a story that follows the life of two young believers as they travel through their own unique journeys, each one searching for something different. But each character discovers the same outcome. We serve an amazing, miraculous, marvelous Redeemer.

See the synopsis below to learn more!

She knew the decision would change her life. But she didn’t know she’d have to fight to survive.

When Amira put her faith in Christ, she knew life wouldn’t be easy. But hiding her conversion from her Muslim family soon becomes the least of her worries.

Forced to leave the only home she’s ever known, she travels to the island of Gabeburough, trying her best to make a fresh start.

Two escaped convicts and a treasure map. A leafy paradise that becomes her home. Amira begins to wonder, where is her Redeemer when she needs Him the most?

Caleb Haddington is prince of Carpathia. Life should be perfect, but he can’t get a certain dark-haired girl out of his mind. Amira was his best friend when he lived in France, but her letters to him have suddenly stopped. Her last letter is filled with terror that her faith will soon be discovered.

Only a single hope keeps him alive; when the time is right, he’s going after her. He’ll bring her back and prove to the kingdom that he’s a man.

But the journey proves to be more perilous than he’d ever imagined. Ridicule, comfortless days and the threat of a hurricane are just the start of his problems. Lying becomes easy for Caleb until his own life crumbles before him.

Brought to his knees under the pressure of his actions, he comes to realize the sweetness of his Savior. Forgiveness, grace, and mercy are granted fully to those who ask.

Caleb and Amira soon discover that they don’t just serve a gracious Savior, but a wonderful, magnificent, marvelous Redeemer.

What inspired A Marvelous Redeemer?

I always knew that I wanted to learn more about Amira! Amira was first introduced in the first book in the trilogy “A Higher Ransom.” Amira’s life has a special uniqueness about it. I just knew that her story would need to be told some day!

What do you want readers to gain from your book?

That no matter what, no matter how many times you stumble, no matter how many people try to tell you that God will never forgive you, always remember this; we serve a Marvelous Redeemer. A Redeemer that gave His very LIFE so that you could be saved! He loves you, He cares for you, you are His. So, remember that and don’t ever let it go.

Have you written any other books and where can we get them?

Yes, I have! I’ve published six other books. Three poetry books, a devotional book titled “Hidden Treasures” and then the other two books in “A Light for Christ” trilogy.

You can find my books through my website: ALEIGHACISRAEL.COM, on Amazon, through Grace and Truth Books, or online at Barnes & Noble.

Which country would you love to visit?

Just one?! I’d love to visit France someday. Because that’s Queen Anna’s hometown, it was talked about quite a bit in the second book!

Which character was your favourite to write and why?

Hemlock. He’s such a sweet man! Okay, he’s an escaped convict, I’m not sure how “sweet” that really makes him. But, he’s got such a kind heart, (as you’ll soon discover!) and his knowledge of sea creatures is quite impressive. His character was definitely the most enjoyable to write! His personality kept my little siblings laughing!

Where can we connect with you?

I LOVE connecting with other writers and readers!!! I answer every email, message, and comment I ever receive. Those little interactions with others are what keep me going!

I post weekly on my blog: The Pen of the Writer

(www.thepenofthewriter.weebly.com)

And I upload some pretty neat games, trivia, events, and SO much more, on my official website! (ALEIGHACISRAEL.COM)

What tips do you have for young aspiring writers?

Don’t give up. (Oh, and join The Young Writer’s Workshop, if you can!)

No, really. As a young writer you WILL be told some point in your writing life that you don’t have what it takes to succeed. That you can’t pursue being an author as your ultimate goal. But don’t believe those lies. I was told by an editor that my first book needed at least seven years of work before I could let anyone read it. A year later, I published that book and have been consistently touched and blessed by the countless emails, reviews, and even a publisher who agreed to carry all of my novels!

You’ll get criticism, you’ll suffer from discouragement. Just don’t ever let it cause you to stop writing!

My first real blog post went by without a single comment. The blog post I had strived over, working until I got every point right. Did anyone even read it? I never knew. Until last week. Someone commented on that post, over a year old now, and thanked me for writing it. They said that it encouraged them so much that they were going to strive to grow stronger in their faith and get more involved in their church. Praise the Lord! So, you see, you never know how your words might impact someone’s life. So keep writing. Don’t ever stop. And seriously, join The Young Writer’s Workshop if you can! It changed my life and I know it will change yours!

Thank you so much Aleigha. And if you want to learn more about Aleigha, simply continuing reading below 😊

ALEIGHA C. ISRAEL writer of inspirational fiction and poetry, is an author of multiple books and enjoys sharing God’s love through the powerful art of storytelling.

Her trilogy “A Light for Christ” is distributed by Grace and Truth Books and has been enjoyed by ages nine to ninety-three!

Aleigha is a Student Mentor over at the Young Writers Workshop and she’ll be quick to tell you how amazing that community is.

She resides in GA with the world’s best parents, and five of the greatest siblings. When she’s not writing (or reading!) she can usually be seen working around the house, playing games with her siblings, or traveling with her family’s band, “Fret Not.”

She doesn’t have to search very hard for inspiration. Living in the Israel household, it’s guaranteed there’s an adventure waiting around every corner!

How about you?

Do you think of a message you want your readers to take away from your story when you write?

May 2018’s Books of the Month Part 2

Hello everyone!

Welcome to part two of May’s Books of the Month, and this book’s really special because it releases today!

About the book:

Something is brewing. Like the far off rumble of a train in the distance, a rebellion is stirring. A cry for change arises in the midst of a traditional monarchy, where King Addison has inherited the throne. Who are the underground troublemakers? What is stirring their defiant banner and demand for change? Find out in The Rebellion! (The Tales of Tarsurella #2) Vanessa Bennett lands her dream job working at the Palace in Tarsurella. She struggles to balance everything on her plate: life in a new country, stressful deadlines, crabby co-workers, college classes at the local University, and blossoming feelings of romantic adoration toward her boss–King Addison. Keeping up with her To-Do list, while trying to earn respect in Addison’s male-dominated administration, presents its challenges. Nevertheless, she can’t help but fight a reoccurring thought and the excitement rising with it: is Addison interested in her? Addison is adjusting to his new role as King. Rumors of a rebellious uprising among the youth in Tarsurella intensifies, as acts of violence and protest break out across the city. Addison is determined to uncover the hidden instigator who fearlessly blogs democracy-driven ideals with a secretive pen name. Will Addison discover and expose the fiery rebellion leader? Or will his efforts fail to stop the rebellious thoughts spreading like wildfire, causing a heartbreaking rift in his divided nation?

What I loved:

Why isn’t Tarsurella a real country? Why aren’t the characters real, especially Vanessa, Addison and his sisters? I love reading about them and Vanessa and Addison’s relationship is so adorable. Has anyone thought of making these books into movies? Everybody needs a dose of Tarsurella 😍

Age Range: 12+

People, if you’re a tween/teen girl, read this! It’s clean, it’s Christian with strong Christian values. It has princesses and royalty- what else do you need to be convinced?

Why I recommend this book:

If you enjoyed The Coronation, you are going to love The Rebellion! It’s so beautiful on seeing how God is constantly at work in us, and He always has something good in store for us, even if we make mistakes, big or small, know or don’t know our future just yet, he is always at work in us, and the results are just beautiful.

W

Where to buy this book:

So, The Rebellion releases today, and you can buy it on Amazon as paperback in Britain and the USA! You can buy the paperback in America here 

How about you?

Have you been celebrating with other people on their releases?

May 2018’s Books of the Month Part 1

Hello everyone!

I’m so excited to be doing TWO book reviews as part of Livy Jarmusch’s celebrations for her new book release, The Rebellion- The Tales of Tarsurella Part 2.

Haven’t read book one? Don’t worry, today’s first review will tell you all about it 😊

About the book

Prince Addison is only several weeks away from inheriting the Kingdom of Tarsurella. The entire Palace is ablaze with excitement, as the Royal Family prepares for the event of a lifetime. Despite the exciting event which is near at hand, Addison and his younger siblings (all seven of them!) must carry on with their daily activities. Addison’s sisters, Princesses Bridget, Chasity, and Hope, have their struggles with being iconic European starlets of a modern day monarchy. The teen heiresses grace magazine covers, smile for photoshoots, and gracefully glide through important interviews–until a certain American popstar arrives on the scene. Kennetic Energy, the wildly popular band from the United States, is chosen to play at Addison’s Coronation. David Carter, the band’s handsome lead singer, fumbles through awkward moments with Princess Hope–in front of the cameras. When an embarrassing rumor sparks that Princess Hope is dating the young fellow, she is determined to get the band fired from their Royal gig. Meanwhile, Princess Chasity is dealing with her own fragile affairs of the heart. Her new security guard, Hanson Fletcher, is completely captivating, yet entirely frustrating. She attempts to keep the entrance of her heart firmly protected, while following the wisdom of Proverbs 4:23. But can she be successful in guarding her heart, from her security guard? The Coronation is Book #1 in The Tales of Tarsurella Trilogy.

What I loved:

Oh. My. Gosh! Can I be adopted by the Royal Family? Please? It was so lovely reading about Prince Addison and his family because it reminded me that all famous families are human as well, and we all have feelings and go through many similar situations.

Age Range: 12+

If you love princesses with a Christian tween/teen girl twist, you’ll love The Tales of Tarsurella or anything that Livy writes for that matter 😊

Why I recommend this book:

This is such a beautiful book with so many Biblical lessons: Love, Forgiveness,Family, Friendships, Relationships, Judgement, Jealousy, Internet Safety and the list just goes on. I definitely recommend this book if you need to read about any of the themes mentioned or if you simply want some cuteness and adorableness in your life.

Where to buy this book :

You can buy it on Amazon in any country in paperback or as an ebook. Just search Olivia Lynn Jarmusch, and you will find her author page with all of her books 😊

How about you?

Have you read The Coronation yet?

April 2018’s Book of the Month

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since we’ve had a book review, and I’m pleased to share this book with you that I’m on the Street team for.

About the Book

What if friendship cost you everything?
Stranded in Hawaii after the death of her mother, sixteen-year-old Olive Galloway is desperate to escape. She has to get back to Boston before her dad loses all common sense and sells the family house. But plane tickets cost money—something Olive gravely lacks.
With the help of Brander, the fussy youth group worship leader, and Jazz, a mysterious girl with a passion for all things Hawaiian, Olive lands a summer job at the Shave Ice Shack and launches a scheme to buy a plane ticket home before the end of the summer.
But when Jazz reveals a painful secret, Olive’s plans are challenged. Jazz needs money. A lot of it. Olive and Brander are determined to help their friend but, when their fundraising efforts are thwarted, Olive is caught in the middle. To help Jazz means giving up her ticket home. And time is running out.

What I loved:

What  I loved? Oh my goodness, what a question that I am asking myself 🙂

I really enjoyed the setting of the story, Hawaii, because it somehow managed to bring out the story and when it did, it was really beautiful and quite emotional.

I loved the journey that Olive, Brander and Jazz went on to get where they were at the end. Frankly, if I was any three of them and I looked back to see what had happened that summer, I’d be really proud and amazed to see what God had done through me.

Age Rating: 13+

Personally, I think that any preteen aged 11+ can read this book because it is so clean. However, because this book mainly covers the issues about illness and bereavement, there are some scenes where it can get a little bit emotional.

Why I recommend this book:

This was such an enjoyable and touching read about a teen girl who is dealing with teenage life general along with losing the world that she once knew and nearly loses one that she starts to adjust in after the death of her mum. It was so encouraging for me to see that in all trials, there is a way out, and as Christians, even when all else  seems to fail, God is always at work within us.

Where to buy this book:

Well, I am pleased to say that this book is coming out this week on May 1st in the US AND the UK!

You can preorder the ebook or the paperback on Amazon, and if you are British, you can preorder the ebook here

A quick note that I’d like to make is that Taylor is a teen author!

Awesome, huh?

How about you

Do you know of any teen authors?

At Her Fingertips Blog Tour-Author Q& A

Hello everyone!

I’m so excited to have Kellyn Roth on my blog today for an interview for her new book, At Her Fingertips.

Hi Kellyn. When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?

Probably when I was eleven or twelve. After I finished it back in 2014, I knew I wanted The Dressmaker’s Secret to be my first published work. That was also about the time I learned about Indie publishing and decided to pursue it.

What is At Her Fingertips about?

Well, because I can never sum it up in my own words, here’s the blurb:

Alice Knight is looking forward to her debut as it means she will be able to carry out her plan. She will have her first Season in London, she will meet her husband, and she will marry him. However, Alice struggles to make her feelings reconcile with her goals.
Alice is sure that, if she can only cling to her plans, she will manage without help from anyone — including God. A childhood friend returning unexpectedly, a charming gentleman who is not all he should be, and an American author with strange ideas about life all make her question the plan.
With the life she longs for at her fingertips, can Alice grasp it?


What inspired At Her Fingertips?

I always knew I wanted to write a book about Alice’s young adulthood – her first Season in London, meeting her future husband, etc. It was just a matter of deciding exactly how that would happen! It took a bit of brainstorming.

Who is the book for?

Young adults who want to serve God in their lives – though I think adults may be able to enjoy this story as well. It’s for fans of historical romance and Christian fiction with strong themes.

What do you want readers to gain from your book?

I’m told I have lots of “little lessons” sprinkled throughout my book – though I don’t see most of them. I’m like, “Whoa … you got that out of this story?” I suppose God must have helped! The main theme is following God – not your thoughts, not your feelings, not what may seem logical, and not what you feel is right.

Have you written any other books and where can we get them?

Yes, I have! Other than At Her Fingertips, there are the first two book in the series – The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective. I’ve also written a historical novella set in the 1930s, The Lady of the Vineyard, and its sequel, Flowers. I also have a short story, Esther Acton’s New Dress.

You can find all of these on my website, kellynrothauthor.com. They’re all listed on my ‘books’ page. Feel free to sign up for my newsletter to receive monthly updates and special features!

I’m British, and I was wondering if you’ve ever been to England before and if not, which city or landmark would you visit?

I’ve never been in Britain, though I travel there with my imagination through books, movies, and Google Streetview. 😉 I really want to, though … definitely on the bucket list!

I want to see Yorkshire – you know, The Secret Garden’s setting – and Oxford. The White Cliffs of Dover and basically any old mansions I could find. The Scottish Highlands would be amazing, too, if I had time.

Basically, I’d like to see everything I could! Just drink it all in.

If you could meet a famous person in the Victorian era, who would it be and why?

Abraham Lincoln! He’s one of my heroes. There’s something about him that just makes me happy. I think he was a very good man.

Where can we connect with you?

And finally, what tips you have for young aspiring writers?

Don’t give up! Writing is hard, and sometimes it may seem like there’s no point … but there is a point! I wrote a blog post on the subject as it is something I’m very passionate about. Just keeping writing!

Thanks so much Kellyn! And if what you want to know more about At Her Fingertips and Kellyn herself, then simply continue reading 😊

At Her Fingertips (Book #3, featured novel)

March Reflections and April Resolutions

Hello everyone.

So, it’s kinda the middle of April (^^)

My excuses for writing this so late?

Travelling and Camp NaNoWriMo.

What? I don’t just blog you know!

Anyhew, so March was last month.

The main part of March? I went to France and had the best host family that I could dream off 🙂

Oh yeah, Easter was good too 😉

So these were my resolutions for last month:

1. Finish No et Moi

I did it, and I definitely recommend it.
2. Start preparing for Camp NaNoWriMo

Yup, and now I’m going through another horrible first draft 🙂
3. Compose, or finish, a song

Yay! Now onto April’s song!
4. Finish my outline for my novel.

The italics meant that I did it, sort of. I outlined A novel, but not THE novel that I’ve been outlining for the past few months.
5. Actually blog about a few upcoming travels.

This one, I didn’t do 😦

Buuut, you may see some of my adventures soon in a different way 🙂

Ok, now that March is done and dusted, let’s head on over to April:

  1. Camp NaNoWriMo. ‘Nuff said
  2. Start reading another French book.
  3. Compose another song/piece.
  4. Read more books in my spare time.
  5. Draft some reviews.

There we have it!

A quick note about April-June:

I will be in and out because school gets real busy this time of year.

How about you?

How was March?

How’s April?  😉
