Toni Shiloh and Free Books!

Can Delaney Jones find love with army soldier Luke Robinson?

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of Under a Summer Sky, by Melody Carlson, is:


Congratulations! I'll email you for your snail mail address, and we'll get your book right out to you. 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 Toni Shiloh, author of the Christian contemporary romance, Finding Love (Celebrate Lit, June 2017).

Toni Shiloh is a wife, mom, and Christian fiction writer. Once she understood the powerful saving grace thanks to the love of Christ, she was moved to honor her Savior. She writes to bring Him glory and to learn more about His goodness.

She spends her days hanging out with her husband and their two boys. She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and president of the Virginia Chapter.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I don’t like coffee and fill my mug with black tea, milk, and sugar.

You sound like a Brit, Toni! 

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Finding Love.

Delaney Jones has finally started to pick up the pieces of her shattered life after the death of her husband, Parker. Just as life enters a new normal, in walks Army soldier, Luke Robinson. Just when she makes the decision to trust him, life deals her a heavy blow.

 Sergeant First Class Luke Robinson can’t get over his part in the death of Delaney’s husband. In hopes to assuage his guilt, he offers to lend a hand. Only, he never counted on the feelings she evokes with just a smile. Will his secrets widen the gulf or will he finally find absolution?

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

Delaney Jones is a widow with two twin boys. As aggravating as she was in book one, Buying Love, you get to take a deeper look at her story and learn how the death of her husband changed her.

What kind of brainstorming do you do at the beginning of your novels?

Honestly, it depends on the book. With Finding Love, Delaney told me her deepest fear: falling in love with another military man. My brain took over from there.

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

The last book I read was Looking Glass Lies, by Varina Denman. It is such a poignant tale of a woman learning to love herself and her looks that I can’t help but recommend it. We all struggle with self-image, some more than others. This book will help you see yourself in a new light.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on a Christmas novella. I’m so excited to be writing. It seems like it’s been awhile, lol. Once a book is finished, you edit, market, interact with readers (probably my fave next to writing). So, I’m excited to be writing a new story again.

Where else can readers find you online?

Everywhere! Lol, I’ll be more specific.


I also blog at Putting on the New, Heart”wings", Diversity Between the Pages and my own: tonishiloh.weebly.com/blog.

The book can be purchased via the following button:

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

Have you ever had a traumatic experiencing that froze you and you swore to yourself, you wouldn’t put yourself in that position again? If so, did you or how did you overcome that fear?

Back in high school and college I would get so red-faced if I was ever called on, it was so embarrassing! I worked hard to get over that, it's hard to say how I did it, it was more of mind thing than anything else. I still turn red sometimes, but not near as bad as I used to!
