Pam Hillman and Free Books!

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Brightest and Best, by Olivia Newport, is:

JFWisherd@ . . .

Congratulations! I'll email you today to get your mailing address, and we'll get your book to you right away.

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's chat with novelist Pam Hillman, author of Inspirational Historical Romance, Stealing Jake (Tyndale House, August 2015).

 photo Pam Hillman Author Photo_zpsbcbfszox.jpegCBA Bestselling author Pam Hillman was born and raised on a dairy farm in Mississippi and spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn’t afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove a ratty old Allis Chalmers 110. Raking hay doesn’t take much thought so Pam spent her time working on her tan and making up stories in her head. Now, that’s the kind of life every girl should dream of!

Her second novel, Claiming Mariah, won the Inspirational Readers Choice and is a CBA Bestseller. Her latest novel, Stealing Jake, released in August 2015.

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.

-- I was caught in a stampede once. On foot.

-- I hyperventilate when someone describes injuries or surgical procedures in excruciating detail, but oddly enough, manage to hold my own in a medical emergency.

-- In high school, I wanted to be an Air Comptroller, but the closest school was in CA, and I was too chicken to fly. lol

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Stealing Jake.

 photo Stealing Jake_zpsxbf1vmb9.jpegLivy O’Brien is looking for a job in town when she spies a young boy jostling a man walking along the boardwalk, and she recognizes the act for what it is. After all, she used to be known as Light-Fingered Livy. But that was before she put her past behind her and moved to the growing town of Chestnut, Illinois, where she’s helping to run an orphanage. Now she’ll do almost anything to protect the street kids like herself.

Sheriff’s deputy Jake Russell had no idea what he was in for when he ran into Livy―literally—while chasing down a pickpocket. With a rash of robberies and a growing number of street kids in town―as well as a loan on the family farm that needs to be paid off―Jake doesn’t have time to pursue a girl. Still, he can’t seem to get Livy out of his mind. He wants to get to know her better . . . but Livy isn’t willing to trust any man, especially not a lawman.

What is it about your lead characters that will make your readers care about them?

While Jake and Livy both have sympathetic backstories, as a reformed pickpocket, Livy’s is much more emotionally gut-wrenching than Jake’s. The reader is going to cheer extra loud for her when she faces, and overcomes, her fears. On the other hand, Jake faces his fears and overcomes them, too. But Livy has just a bit of an edge when it comes to pulling readers’ heartstrings.

If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your lead roles?

 photo Unknown_zps56lm9rzl.jpegI don’t think we could go wrong with Taylor Kinney as Jake





 photo Unknown-1_zpsdfy1hxnw.jpegand Natalie Portman as Livy.






Who is one of your favorite fictional characters?

Orrin Sackett. Doesn’t hurt that Tom Selleck played Orrin on the big screen, but I was a fan of The Sacketts long before I saw any of the movies. Just a good old cowboy intent on doing what’s right. No matter what situation he found himself in, he eventually took the high road and saved the girl, shot it out with the bad guys, saved the cat, etc. A true-blue cowboy through and through. And then there’s Tell, and Tyrel, and … ☺

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

The Creole Princess, book two of The Gulf Coast Chronicles, by Beth White. The research is amazing and Lyse is a worthy heroine. Even when I had to put the book down, I worried and wondered how she was going to get out of her latest predicament and couldn’t wait to get back to Lyse’s story.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on a historical Christmas novella to be independently published with my Seeker sisters before Christmas 2015. Working title is All Aboard: Destination Christmas. Based on an actual event, an avalanche strands my characters on a train just out of Portand, Oregon in the days leading up to Christmas.

Next up is a novella for Barbour Publishing’s California Gold Rush Brides Collection coming in 2016.

Finally, what question would you like to ask my readers?

I’m always fascinated by why readers prefer a particular genre. Why do you think you enjoy reading historical romance, or science fiction, or contempory romance, [fill in the blank]? Do you think personality plays a part in your choices? Or maybe you gravitated to a certain genre because of other factors--geographical location, city/county life, siblings, available books and movies/tv shows)? Which carries the most weight: nature or nurture?

Thanks, Pam, for visiting with us and telling us about your novel.

Olivia Newport and Free Books!

When a one-room schoolhouse collapses, Ella finds herself losing traction as familiar ground slips away—along with her wedding date.

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Where Treasure Hides, by Johnnie Alexander, is:

wpd_2@ . . .

Congratulations! I'll email you today to get your mailing address, and we'll get your book to you right away.

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's chat with novelist Olivia Newport, author of the Historical Amish novel, Brightest and Best (Barbour/Shiloh Run, August 2015).

Olivia Newport’s novels twist through time to find where faith and passions meet. She lives in stunning Colorado, where daylilies grow as tall as she is.

Her past work includes the Avenue of Dreams series set in 1890s Chicago; the Valley of Choice series of intertwining contemporary and historical Amish stories; Hidden Falls, a digital-first contemporary small-town series; and the Amish Turns of Time series exploring real historical moments of Amish values.

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.

-- My favorite pizza toppings are artichoke hearts and black olives.

-- I have been to nine other countries.

-- My yard is a wild mess of larkspur and I love it.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Brightest and Best.

Ella Hilty’s deepest desire is to marry Gideon Wittmer and be a mother to his children. But Ella’s 1918 Ohio Amish community gets caught in a storm of controversy when English authorities dictate that Amish children must attend consolidated public schools and attend past the eighth grade.

English schoolteacher Margaret Simpson had given up thoughts of marriage years ago, and she’s content with her peaceful life. But a budding romance and conflict with the neighboring Amish community lead Margaret down a path she never expected.

Citing freedom of religion rights, Amish parents stand their ground against progressive English laws, but their stance doesn’t come without consequences. Soon Margaret puts her last chance for romance at risk for the only choice her conscience can abide, and all eyes turn to Ella to bring unity to the Amish and understanding to the English.

What is it about Ella and Margaret that will make your readers care about them?

This story has two female leads whose lives present them with unexpected choices, and they dig deep to discover the right thing to do. Their stories orbit each other and finally find a rhythm together. I hope readers will follow the paths of Ella and Margaret and be inspired to listen to surprising callings on their own lives in service to others.

Who is one of your favorite fictional characters?

One that has stayed with me for many, many years is Asher Lev from Chaim Potok’s My Name Is Asher Lev. It’s a burning story, but it doesn’t back away from living fully in a place of tension and intention. I first read it when I was in college, but the older I get the more I appreciate that life is not as black and white as we often hope it will be.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

I just finished reading A Broken Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert. All the nominations and awards it’s won are well-earned. Readers who enjoy crisp contemporary stories will appreciate Katie’s terrific delivery of a story that reminds us all of the brokenness we share and the power of community to be a healing balm.

What are you working on now?

I am in the final throes of finishing Hope in the Land, a Depression-era Amish historical that brings to life the contribution that Amish women make to the productivity of their households at a time when so many people grasped for hope that their futures would not leave them abandoned. Hope in the Land will release April 2016.

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of The Potter's Lady, by Judith Miller, is:

Congratulations! I'll email you today to get your mailing address, and we'll get your book to you right away.

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's chat with novelist Johnnie Alexander, author of historical novel, Where Treasure Hides (Tyndale, August 2015).

 photo Johnnie Alexander_zpsbr20rhbr.jpgJohnnie Alexander writes inspiring stories that linger in the heart. Where Treasure Hides, her debut novel, won the ACFW Genesis Contest (2011) and Golden Leaf Award (2014). Her first contemporary romance, Where She Belongs (Misty Willow Series; Revell), and her first novella, “The Healing Promise” (Courageous Bride Collection; Barbour), release in 2016.

She also has won Best Novel and Best Writer awards (Florida Christian Writers Conferences), and Bronze Medalist (My Book Therapy Frasier Contest). She volunteers as a category coordinator for the ACFW Genesis Contest, judges various contests, and serves as marketing director for the MidSouth Christian Writers Conference.

A graduate of Rollins College (Orlando) with a Master of Liberal Studies degree, Johnnie treasures family memories, classic movies, road trips, and stacks of books. She lives in the Memphis area with a small herd of alpacas and Rugby, the princely papillon who trees raccoons.

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.

--I’ve worn my mom’s class ring for decades. She lost the onyx stone, so it’s polished gold but still has her graduation year on it and her initials engraved inside.

--I once wrecked my car to avoid hitting a chair that was in the road. As my car went sailing through the air, I squeezed my eyes shut and thought, “This is like a ride at Disney World.”

--I don’t like lemon meringue pie but my favorite pie of all time is O’Charley’s lemon meringue pie. (I know, it doesn’t make sense to me either.)

You may have wrecked your car, but you saved the life of that chair. We must have our priorities!

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Where Treasure Hides.

a href="http://s73.photobucket.com/user/TrishPerry/media/Unknown-3_zpslmhhodsb.jpeg.html" target="_blank"> photo Unknown-3_zpslmhhodsb.jpegArtist Alison Schuyler spends her time working in her family’s renowned art gallery, determined to avoid the curse that has followed the Schuyler clan from the Netherlands to America and back again. She’s certain that true love will only lead to tragedy—that is, until a chance meeting at Waterloo station brings Ian Devlin into her life.

Drawn to the bold and compassionate British Army captain, Alison begins to question her fear of love as World War II breaks out, separating the two and drawing each into their own battles. While Ian fights for freedom on the battlefield, Alison works with the Dutch Underground to find a safe haven for Jewish children and priceless pieces of art alike. But safety is a luxury war does not allow.

As time, war, and an old rival struggle to keep them apart, will Alison and Ian have the faith to fight for their love, or is it their fate to be separated forever?

What is it about Alison that will make your readers care about her?

Alison is a gifted artist who faces extraordinary challenges. Her heart yearns for one man, a soldier and a hero, but for a time she considers an alternative that at first seems safer. Later in the story, she insists on staying in Holland to help protect the art and the Jewish children while her father is equally insistent she return to the United States. Through her struggles, Alison learns to trust God with her future.

If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your lead roles?

 photo Unknown_zpst6jovor6.jpegThis is a hard question for me because I don’t use celebrities for inspiration. But after spending some time searching around the internet, I selected Lily James (from Downton Abbey) to play Alison


 photo images_zpslzqhirau.jpegand Theo James to play Ian.






 photo Unknown-1_zpsyrsy09a0.jpegBut if we could time travel, then Ingrid Bergman plays Alison




 photo Unknown-2_zps7x2y9z10.jpegand Joseph Cotten plays Ian.





Who is one of your favorite fictional characters?

Jean Valjean, the prisoner who becomes a savior to young Marius in Les Miserables. After his conversion, and no matter the stakes, Valjean endeavors to do the right thing. He embodies grace and sacrificial love.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

I recently read Ann Tatlock’s Once Beyond a Time, and absolutely loved it. Ann has a lyrical writing style yet creates characters with their own distinct voices. The story, set in the late 1960s, centers on a broken family who move into a house that’s a strange nexus in time. Characters from the past and from the future help the family find healing and hope.

That's a fascinating story premise! What are you working on now?

I’m finishing up Book #2 in the Misty Willow Series for Revell. The first book, Where She Belongs, releases in January.

Kerry Nietz and Free Books!

 photo AZfS_zps2vvfrj9d.jpgFirst, vampires in space. And now...zombies. Really?

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Summer's List, by Anita Higman, is:

happygrammaof3@ . . .

Congratulations! I'll email you today to get your mailing address, and we'll get your book to you right away.

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's revisit with novelist Kerry Nietz, author of the very entertaining science fiction (with a smattering of suspense/thriller, and a buggy-full of Amish) novel, Amish Zombies from Space (Freeheads, May 2015).

 photo Author Photo_zpsoxcjropw.jpgKerry Nietz is a refugee of the software industry. He spent more than a decade of his life flipping bits, first as one of the principal developers of the database product FoxPro for the now mythical Fox Software, and then as one of Bill Gates's minions at Microsoft. He is a husband, a father, a technophile and a movie buff.

Kerry has one non-fiction book, a memoir entitled FoxTales: Behind the Scenes at Fox Software. Amish Zombies from Space is his sixth novel.

Please tell us several random things we might not know about you.

-- I once transported an alpaca in a minivan. She didn’t wear a seatbelt.

-- We live in a woods, which means there is always some wildlife nearby that’s worth watching. I once had a red fox walk through my front yard, and this year we had a robin nest on the windowsill of our upstairs bathroom. Fun for the kids. Though I think mother robin was a little nervous.

-- I’ve twice competed in a Pump and Run event. The goal is to do as many bench presses as you can and then run a 5K. A fun challenge.

-- I have a motorcycle license and a scuba license.

But did you have a license to transport an unsecured llama?

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Amish Zombies from Space.

 photo AZfS_zps2vvfrj9d.jpgAmish Zombies from Space is the sequel to last year’s Amish Vampires in Space. That book follows a group of plain folk that find themselves forced into space. Unfortunately, aside from the spaceship’s modern crew, there are less altruistic occupants onboard—vampires.

 photo AViS_zpsyoo1qfqu.jpg
So there is this interesting conflict between the pacifism of the Amish, the caught-in-the-middle ship’s crew, and the vampires who want to eat them all. Amish Vampires had a solid endpoint, but there were enough lingering questions that I, as a reader, wanted answered. Plus I was curious what happened to the surviving characters. Did they recover and flourish or were they forever scarred?

Amish Zombies is my attempt at addressing all that. It takes place five years later. The Amish have a new planet named Resolve, and the other characters are all over the galaxy—flying private ships, running their own businesses, etc. One is getting out of jail.

An unexpected ship shows up on Resolve. Things go downhill from there.

I really enjoy tongue-in-cheek science fiction. Your titles alone signal that.

What is it about your lead characters that will make your readers care about them?

Amish Zombies is a bit unusual (well . . . maybe more than a bit ☺) in that it has more of an ensemble cast than the previous book. There are a handful of characters, each with their own important role to play. The two most important characters are an Amish man named Mark and a female doctor named Darly.

Darly is a problem-solver to the point of being obsessive. She’s dependable and resourceful. One of those people everyone would like to know, I think.

Mark is the Bishop of his community and so has a lot of responsibilities. But he’s also emotionally damaged. So he has all these things that are required of him, yet all he really wants is to be by himself. To heal. I think we’ve all had periods when we’ve felt like that.

If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your lead roles?

 photo Unknown_zpstktojvrl.jpegI think Agents of Shield’s Ming-Na Wen would make a good Darly.





 photo Unknown-1_zpsaikd6d0u.jpegAnd Philip Seymour Hoffman would’ve made a good Mark, at least in temperament.





Imagine you’ve been contracted to write a novel about a real person. About whom would you most want to write?

One of my friends, Tosca Lee, writes novels based on biblical characters and does an amazing job at it. I think it would be fun to try something like that, but pick a more obscure character than she typically does. Maybe a John Mark, or a Jabez, or even Joseph the father of Jesus.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

The last novel I finished was The City of Gold and Lead by John Christopher. It is the second novel in a series (the Tripod series) too, and takes place years after an alien invasion has occurred. All of humanity are servants of these aliens, and in fact, don’t remember a time before them. At a young age people are required to have a skullcap installed that helps keep them in line. The main character is a boy who manages to avoid the skullcap, so he’s one of the few free-thinking humans. The City of Gold and Lead is about his adventures inside an alien city. Lots of great world building and a tight, tense story.

The series is aimed at younger readers (7th grade and up) yet it is sophisticated enough that anyone would enjoy it. It has been around for decades, but somehow I missed it growing up. It's a fun read, and also short—maybe 200 pages. A good choice for when reading time is at a premium.

What are you working on now?

I’ve been working on Amish-something for the better part of three years now. Both books were large and complicated—around 300,000 words total—and I’m mentally exhausted. So lately I’ve been catching up on all the things I’ve let slide over the last three years. At least until something creative strikes me.

Anita Higman and Free Books!

 photo Summers List front cover_zpsstho4tdq.jpgLife and love keep going awry for Summer Snow, until her grandmother sends her on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree—a kind and quirky young man from Summer's past.

Before we visit today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Mocha Sunrise, by Julie Carobini, is:

andrealschultz@ . . .

Congratulations! I'll email you today to get your mailing address, and we'll get your book to you right away.

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to participate in future book give-aways! Subscribers are entered a second time when they comment.

And now let's revisit with novelist Anita Higman, author of Inspirational Women's Fiction novel, Summer’s List (Moody Publishers, June 2015).  photo 5_025_zpslkiherka.jpgBest-selling and award-winning author, Anita Higman, has been writing for thirty years and has forty books published. She’s been a Barnes & Noble “Author of the Month” for Houston and has a BA in the combined fields of speech communication, psychology, and art.

Anita and her husband are building a storybook home in the woods and plan to move there by the end of the year. A few of Anita’s favorite things are good movies, fairytales, traveling, gardening, exotic teas, and brunch with her gal friends.

Please tell us three random things we might not know about you.

--I love licorice ice cream.

--I once worked in a pillow factory.

--I love to hike, but after I get all dirty I don’t want to camp-out—I want to go to a nice resort and clean up, relax, and graze across a nice buffet.

A licorice ice cream fan. That's a new one for me! 

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Summer's List.

 photo Summers List front cover_zpsstho4tdq.jpgLife hadn't been easy for Summer Snow. In acts of selflessness--caring for her ailing parents and running her grandmother's bookstore--she had forfeited her youth and dreams for the needs of others. And the only tries she had at love... didn't turn out. She had the bookstore, she had her beloved granny, but she was missing something--or someone.

Opportunity strikes when Granny sends Summer on an unexpected adventure with one Martin Langtree, a kind but gangly young man from Summer's past. A childhood friendship is rekindled, a romance is sparked, and mysteries are solved in one magical Texas summer. Will Summer strike out on love again, or will things finally go her way?

What is it about Summer that will make your readers care about her?

Summer Snow is a wonderful person. She is somewhat impulsive, but she also has a good heart. I love this character so much that I’d like to be Summer Snow when I grow up. I hope readers grow to care about Summer the way I did.

If you were the casting director for the film version of your novel, who would play your lead roles?

 photo images_zpsaxmqxhbr.jpegIf we go back in time, I’d love to see what Jimmy Stewart





 photo Unknown_zpsppufmxcc.jpegand Donna Reed would do with my characters.





 photo images-1_zpsy5pkbujl.jpegThey were wonderful together in It’s a Wonderful Life.




Imagine you’ve been contracted to write a novel about a real person. About whom would you most want to write?

Barbra Streisand, because I’ve been a fan of hers most of my life.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade. It was fun ride with an upbeat message. Great entertainment.

What are you working on now?

I’m heading out on a new adventure in my writing career. I’m writing young adult books with my daughter, Hillary. I’m very excited about the future, and I hope you will follow along with me on this new journey!
