Unbreakable by Nancy Mehl

Gentle and unassuming Hope Kauffman has never been one to question or try to
make changes. She quietly helps her father run Kingdom Quilts and has agreed to
the betrothal her father arranged for her with the devout but shy Ebbie
Miller.

Despite Hope's and other Kingdom residents' attempts to maintain
the status quo, changes have already begun to stir in the small Mennonite town.
The handsome and charismatic Jonathon Wiese is the leader of the move to reform,
and when one of Kingdom's own is threatened by a mysterious outsider, Jonathon
is one of the first to push for the town to arm itself. Hope's fiance, Ebbie, is
at the forefront of those demanding the town stay true to its traditions of
nonviolence.

When strange incidents around town result in outright
attacks on several townspeople, Hope can't help but question what she's always
been taught. As the town that's always stood so strong together is torn apart at
the seams, Hope is caught between opposing sides, both represented by those she
has come to care for. With tensions high and lives endangered by an unknown
threat, Hope fears Kingdom can never survive in one piece.

 

Nancy
Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas, with her husband Norman and her very active
puggle, Watson. She’s authored fourteen books and is currently at work on a new
series for Bethany House Publishing. The first book in her Road to Kingdom
series, “Inescapable,” came out in July of 2012. The second book, “Unbreakable”
releases in February of 2013.



All
of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as
your soul. “I welcome the opportunity to share my faith through my writing,”
Nancy says. “God is number one in my life. I wouldn’t be writing at all if I
didn’t believe that this is what He’s called me to do. I hope everyone who
reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them:
God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan for
your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”

fall weather in south Florida, which, of course, for us, just means temperatures
in the high 80s instead of the low 90s!

Pic for website 2012Hello, again! Maureen Pratt here with my monthly CAN blog about the art and craft of writing. This month's topic is, "Help! Where's my story?!" or, "What to do when your story goes one way while you go another."

Whether we write fiction or non-fiction, plotting or outlining is often an essential part of the publication process. From the first query to the last book cover blurb, most of us try to envision the beginning, middle and end of a work before we dive in.

 But, as we authors know, as hard as we might work on those early ideations, "things happen" once we get started. New facts come to light. A secondary character takes center stage. A plot thread we knew was right suddenly becomes oh-so-wrong.

How do we handle these and other creations of the creative process? First of all…

Hello, again!  Maureen Pratt here for my monthly blog post. And what a month it's becoming! No doubt many of you have multiple works in progress gracing your keyboards, computer screens, notebooks, and imaginations. Some deadlines, too. The life of a working writer. And then…something happens. How do we handle health and other emergencies and keep our writing in mind and heart, too? We are writers, after all, and writers, well, we write.

As I write this, I am in the midst of a significant family emergency. One minute, I was working on a new magazine article, and hours later, wham!  Still consumed by the situation, I have come up for a bit of air – I know that other writers experience the same thing. Certainly those of us with ongoing health conditions have experienced "life intervening," fracturing the fragile statis that we create in which we pen our work. So, with this in mind, I have some suggestions for us working writers "when something happens, and especially how we can keep our writing skills going along the way:

_09X5241-PS-Pennington 4x6-72dpiHi, all! Ava Pennington here from not-so-sunny Florida. As I write this, it’s raining. At least my lawn and flowerbeds are happy. Is it raining where you are? I don’t mean the weather. Is it raining on your writing?
