Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! With temperatures soaring above 100 degrees, I’m longing for cool and foggy England. Today’s guest, Linore Burkard might be able to take us all there in her books—if not in reality. Linore writes both Regency romance (set in cool and foggy England—ahh!) and young adult suspense (under the name L.R. Burkard).
Linore, please tell us about your book.
Before the Season Ends is the book that ushered in the genre of Regency Romance to Christian publishing. Now in its second edition, newly edited and with special features, it has a Regency glossary (especially handy for readers new to the era), a fun recipe, and Discussion Questions. Think Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer with a strong twist of faith! Read More →
Greetings from Marti Pieper in summery Mount Dora, Florida. I’m using the writerly summery as opposed to steamy or sweltering, of course. I do appreciate the daily offerings of sunshine and blue sky!
Today, I’m delighted to host author and editor Roseanna M. White on our CAN blog. She has lots of exciting news to share, so let’s get right to her interview.
Welcome, Roseanna! Could you please give us a brief introduction to your latest book?
Roseanna M. White
Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages during the Great War. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough. Read More →
Greetings from Sarah Sundin in California! Today I have the joy of interviewing Crystal Bowman, author of over 100 books for children! Today she’s sharing about a project that’s quite a bit different for her—and yet completely in line with her heart for families.
Welcome, Crystal, please tell us about your book, Mothers In Waiting—Hope and Healing for Those with Empty Arms.
This book is a collection of 30 stories from women who have experienced infertility, miscarriage, adoption, IVF procedures, and much more. With honest and heart-filled stories, the contributors desire to walk beside those who are on this long and painful journey. It’s like offering a group hug!
What inspired you to write this book?
My daughter-in-law asked me to help her write a book for women facing infertility. She had a 5-year journey that was long and painful. She wanted to give hope to other women and let them know they are not alone. Read More →
Greetings from Marti Pieper! It’s May, and that means we’re already having temperatures in the 80s where I live in Mount Dora, Florida. My friend and fellow author C. Kevin Thompson knows that, because he’s basically my neighbor and fellow Lake County resident. Kevin is also an ordained minister whose background no doubt assists him in his present position as an assistant high school principal. As you may know, Kevin has posted many of our author interviews, but this time, we get to turn the questions around and point them at him instead.
Welcome back to the CAN blog, Kevin! Tell us about your book, When the Clock Strikes Fourteen (a Blake Meyer Thriller – Book 4).
C. Kevin Thompson
At this stage of the story, Blake laments his past, how it is infiltrating his present, and how the future may irreparably harm his family. He has a lead on his family’s whereabouts, but they are still captives. Pawns in a deadly game of vengeance. And the plan to release the contagion that threatens to infect America with its own version of the Black Death is being modified by those responsible, making it harder to defend. Read More →
Happy spring! Davalynn Spencer here, welcoming author April McGowan – and in April, no less, one of my favorite months.
April, give us a can’t-wait teaser for your new book, Shine the Light.
Shannon, photographer of the downtrodden, is out to save the world. But when a man from her past appears, her world crumbles into PTSD episodes that threaten her hope for a future. Will she overcome these debilitating memories, or will her past win and leave her broken forever?
Okay, April, you win. Now I can’t wait to find out if Shannon succeeds. Did anything in particular inspire you to write this book?
I got to know Shannon and her dedicated friendship for Amber in Hold the Light (the first book in the series) and I just admired her so much, I needed to find out what made her tick, what hardships she’d faced, what she had to overcome. It also gave me the opportunity to delve deep into the causes and triggers of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Read More →
