Guest Post from Beckie

Why I write YA and the BFA series


I believe a teenager still exists inside each of us.  

We hear a familiar tune from our “glory days” and are instantly tapping our toes. Mentally, we’re back in high school —poofy bangs, scrunchie, neon off-the-shoulder sweatshirt — and all. Oh, wait. That’s me back in the ‘80s!   

Ah, yes. There is something wonderfully awful about those coming-of-age years.   

From the first kiss to the first breakup, there are memories we cherish and some we don’t care to ever revisit. Being a teen can be exciting, confusing, painful, joyous, or even all of those things at once!   

No matter how different your teenage experience was from mine, one thing is true for us all: these years have an enormous impact on who we become as adults. We can all sympathize with the plight of puberty and the longing for independence and acceptance. Yeah, there’s still a teenager in all of us!  
These are the reasons I write YA.   

My hope is to use the power of storytelling to move past barriers and open hearts to accept how much God loves and desires a personal relationship with us.   

At every age, we all need the grace and love of Jesus.   

In the Beauties from Ashes (BFA) series, I write about relatable characters with difficult issues and traumatic pasts to enlighten readers about the unseen spiritual battle referred to in Scripture. Each character has a secret that has left them vulnerable to the battle in an invisible realm where demonic creatures fight to keep them chained to their pasts and angels of light work to free them.   

The characters and their issues are complex, just like real life. In fact, some of the topics are often considered too taboo to talk about openly. But what is left in the dark, festers and grows. It is only in the light that we can be free. In the BFA series, readers experience the character’s quest for truth, love, grace, and freedom while hopefully finding the same for themselves.

Review + Tour GIVEAWAY: War-Torn Heart by Allison Wells


War Torn Heart blog & review tour

Welcome to the Blog & Review Tour – and Giveaway – for War-Torn Heart by Allison Wells, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: War-Torn Heart  
Author: Allison Wells  
Publisher: Ambassador International  
Genre: Historical Fiction  
Release Date: March 20, 2019

Abigail Walker, a young woman from rural South Carolina, is on the cusp of womanhood, aching to be able to run wild as the younger children do, yet yearning for things she has yet to understand.

Awkward and unsure of herself, Abby is flustered when she meets Harvey Nicholas, a cadet from Clemson College. As summer begins, Abby finds herself constantly in the company of Harvey and falling quickly in love with him.

As rumors of war begin to reach the States, Abby begins to fear what may come for her older brother and Harvey.

Once Pearl Harbor is bombed, the boys are eager to protect their home and the women they love. But will Abby and Harvey's love be able to withstand distance, rumors, loss, and hurt? Or will the war be what tears apart Abby's heart?  

War-Torn Heart is a kleenex-box book with a story of hope, of love, and of perseverance through World War II, which will make the reader cry, scream, and long for more.

PURCHASE LINKS: Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | Book Depository |CBD


MY THOUGHTS

War-Torn Heart by Allison Wells is a heartfelt coming-of-age story set against the 1940s backdrop of a world at war. The story focuses mainly on one family and the effects of World War II on their lives in rural South Carolina. It was this southern setting that first drew me to the story, and the story conveys a vivid feel for the area.

I enjoyed Abby, a sweet young lady who embodies the charm and strength that I love about many southern women. Life changed for Abby when she met Harvey, a Clemson military cadet, during the summer of her sixteenth year. My favorite part was learning about Clemson – an all-male, all-white military school at the time – through Harvey’s eyes. No family remains untouched through the long years of war, and I appreciated that its effects are not glossed over in this story.

War-Torn Heart is a bittersweet, yet heartwarming story, with faith applied to daily living. Like the other books I’ve read by this publisher, Ambassador International, this story has a genuine faith thread that I appreciated. The writing seemed a little wordy at times, with more telling than showing, and I longed for greater character depth. An interesting read overall, though.

Although Abby is 16 when she meets Harvey, this story is not targeted to a teen audience, but rather for adults.  Romance is a major theme, and while it doesn’t go beyond kissing, there’s a lot of focus on romantic longing and many of these scenes are a little more descriptive than I like. Older teens would possibly enjoy War-Torn Heart.

I received a copy of this book through JustRead Tours. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Spotlight + Tour GIVEAWAY: Beauty in Battle by Robin Patchen


Beauty in Flight blog blitz

Welcome to the Blog Blitz & Giveaway for the Beauty In Flight series by Robin Patchen, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: Beauty in Battle (book #3)
Author: Robin Patchen
Publisher: JDO Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 9, 2019

The truth is out, but will it set her free or land her in the grave?

Harper doesn’t want to return to Maryland to face the police. The mess she left behind makes her look guilty of the worst, but it’s too late to run again. Red is safe and the authorities are waiting. At least Jack is by her side.

Now that Jack knows the truth, his feelings for Harper are deeper than ever. He’s not about to leave her side, especially knowing a killer is after her.

But Derrick is on their trail, and he’s come unhinged. And he may not be the biggest threat lurking.  

PURCHASE: Goodreads | Amazon


EXCERPT:

      She remembered why she was doing this. Because she couldn’t take care of Red unless she was free of these charges. She couldn’t protect Red from Derrick unless she told her story and got the police looking for him. She couldn’t be free unless she surrendered her freedom.
      Could freedom come through surrender?
      That’s what she’d discovered in her relationship with Christ. Surrendering to Him made her free—of her guilt and shame and fears and addictions.
      Maybe, true freedom could only be found on the far side of obedience. And trust.
      She’d trusted God with a lot, but she hadn’t trusted Him with this. She was terrified. But fear could only defeat her if she let it stop her.
      Jack’s gaze still didn’t falter, and she realized something else. She couldn’t be free to love Jack unless she risked losing him. If he didn’t stick, then he’d never been meant to be hers. If he did stick… If he kept his promises and stayed with her no matter what happened next…
      She’d never known that kind of love.
      She wanted to, though.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

robin patchen

Aside from her family and her Savior, Robin Patchen has two loves—writing and traveling. If she could combine them, she’d spend a lot of time sitting in front of her laptop at sidewalk cafes and ski lodges and beachside burger joints. She’d visit every place in the entire world—twice, if possible—and craft stories and tell people about her Savior. Alas, time is too short and money is too scarce for Patchen to traipse all over the globe, even if her husband and kids wanted to go with her. So she stays in Oklahoma, shares the Good News when she can, and writes to illustrate the unending grace of God through the power and magic of story.

Spotlight + Tour GIVEAWAY: StormProof by Carol McLeod




About the Book

Book: StormProof  
Author: Carol McLeod  
Genre: Religion/Christian life/Woman’s issues  
Release Date: March 5, 2019  

Go “storm chasing” through the pages of the greatest Book ever written! 

What storm has blown into your circumstances? Are you—or someone you love—suffering from the trauma of plans that have been washed away, relationships that have been uprooted, or security that has been devastated? Many believers have been known to ask, “God, where are You in this storm?” or, “Lord, did You send this storm into my life?” Just what does a believer do during a stormy season? StormProof: Weathering Life’s Tough Times tackles these and other tumultuous questions. 

Author Carol McLeod is a storm survivor—more than that, a victor—over infertility, depression, and cancer. She understands the spiritual, emotional, and physical challenges of the trials we face in our lives. A gifted Bible teacher, she provides “life preservers” of hope and faith through the eternal, practical wisdom found only in God’s Word. 

By examining key storms in the Bible, and the lives of those affected by them, Carol guides you to uncommon comfort for your own storms, offering the shelter of hope, joy, and faith. In StormProof, you will step out of the boat to walk the waves with Peter, knowing that Jesus always comes to be with you in the midst of your storms; you will be rocked aboard a wind-driven ship with the apostle Paul, in danger of being smashed against the rocks, but be preserved by God’s power; you will watch the gathering storm clouds with Noah, holding on to faith in God’s purposes. You will also experience Jonah’s self-inflicted tempest while affirming God’s unconditional love, sit in silence with Job and ponder his questions about the greatest storm of testing, and huddle with the disciples as their boat is swamped by surging waves—only to hear Jesus’s eternal words, “Peace, be still.” You will also hear about storms of harsh circumstances that others from recent history have encountered and overcome. 

Storms are common in every season of life. Yet, for a believer in Christ, the damage such storms cause can be contained, depending on how we navigate their tumultuous waves. There is a way—a triumphant way—to encounter the fierce gales of life and then exit the tempests with strength and resilience. There is a definitive way to walk through the most devastating of circumstantial tornadoes and emerge with grace, empowered for the future. There is a way to be StormProof.

You haven’t just weathered the tough times in life…you have rejoiced through them! 

There is no one I would rather share an umbrella with than you, my friend."

Review + Tour GIVEAWAY: The White City by Grace Hitchcock




About the Book

Book: The White City
Author: Grace Hitchcock  
Genre: Christian Historical/Suspense  
Release Date: March, 2019  

Mysterious Disappearances Taint the Chicago World’s Fair

Step into True Colors—a new series of Historical Stories of Romance and American Crime 

While attending the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893, Winnifred Wylde believes she witnessed a woman being kidnapped. She tries to convince her father, an inspector with the Chicago police, to look into reports of mysterious disappearances around the White City. Inspector Wylde tries to dismiss her claims as exaggeration of an overactive imagination, but he eventually concedes to letting her go undercover as secretary to the man in question—if she takes her pistol for protection and Jude Thorpe, a policeman, for bodyguard. 

Will she be able to expose H. H. Holmes’s illicit activity, or will Winnifred become his next victim?

Click here to order your copy.  


My Thoughts


The White City, book #1 in a new “true crime” series by Barbour Publishing, is a great debut by Grace Hitchcock. The writing is fresh, with a gentle humor throughout, and characters are well drawn. There’s plenty of suspense in this story inspired by a man known as America’s first serial killer, and romance is a major theme as well.

I loved the vivid historic detail and was quickly drawn into the setting of Chicago’s World Fair during the summer months of 1893. Winnifred, daughter of Inspector Wylde of the Chicago police, is simply delightful. She’s brave, enthusiastic, and an avid reader of romantic adventures! Jude, the officer assigned to protect her while she poses as the suspect’s secretary, is a great match for her, both on and off the job. He’s intelligent, kind, caring, and self-sacrificing. There’s a little romance triangle with the addition of a secondary character who I enjoyed, but it’s really all about Jude and Winnifred. I loved how both strive to put their faith into action in every situation.

Lighthearted moments give a good balance to a story about a serial killer, and the author captured the complexity of his nature - charisma, cunning, and propensity for violence. The story is more about detecting methods than crime details. In today’s high-tech world of crime solving, it’s fun to be swept back to a time where skills like observation and questioning played such a huge part, and many crimes did get solved that way.

The White City is both interesting and entertaining, a great beginning to what promises to be a fascinating series. I look forward to more of Grace Hitchcock’s writing.

Recommended.

I received a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: Beauty in Hiding (book #2)
Author: Robin Patchen
Publisher: JDO Publishing
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 12, 2019

Harper’s second chance at life will become a second stint in prison if anyone connects her to those two dead men.

Nutfield, New Hampshire, is as good a place as any to hide from the murderer Harper left behind in Maryland. All she has to do is lie low and make enough money to keep herself and Red alive until she can figure out who her enemies are.

Jack Rossi is mystified by his beautiful new tenant and her confused grandfather. Something's not right, but the love he sees between them and the care she takes of the old man convinces Jack they're trustworthy. As drawn as he is to Harper, she’s his tenant, so she’s off limits.

Derrick, Harper's ex-boyfriend and Red’s grandson, needs to find his grandfather and get his hands on the old man’s money before Derrick ends up with a bullet in the skull. And when he gets his hands on Harper, she’ll be sorry for what she’s put him through.

Harper and Jack grow closer, but so do her enemies. If the truth comes out, she may lose her freedom—or her life.

      “Never been that far west. What’s it like?”
      “Flat. Skies as wide as…” She looked around, and her lips quirked in an almost smile. “As wide as this, actually. Except instead of ocean, we have grassland.”
      “And tornadoes?”
      “I’ve never been swept away, so you can keep the Dorothy jokes to yourself.”
      “Dog named Toto?”
      “Not even close.” She walked a few steps and added, “Dog was named Lassie.”
      “All sorts of American film references going on.”
      She giggled. An actual joyful, troubles-abandoned, I-trust-you-at-least-for-this-second giggle. The sound made his heart race, his palms sweat in the cold breeze. That giggle did something to his insides, something he’d better not name. Something he’d better figure out how to undo and fast.
      But she looked at him, those blue eyes sparkling like the water beneath him, and he knew there was no undoing it.

More from Marguerite

I am very excited about the release of Bring Me Near. Thank you for joining me in its debut. 

My writing journey began with reading as a child in elementary school. I lived in England for a few years where I bought and read loads of books on horses, history, and mystery. While in that unique environment, my parents took us to explore castles, old houses, churches, and cemeteries. The love of history sprouted and grew (I blame it all on my father)! 

My love of reading never diminished, but it continued to expand my world. I still devour books (much to my husband’s and my bookcases’ chagrin), mostly historical Christian fiction, though I have some favorite contemporary novels and authors 

In my Revolutionary Faith Series, I combine my love of travel, research, history, and writing. I researched my family history originating in Charleston, South Carolina and walked in the footsteps of my 1770s ancestors (I even found my ancestors’ house for sale!) I asked questions about what they would have done during the American Revolution? What did they eat and wear? Were they fearful? Faithful? Courageous? Where did they worship? 

My motto in writing is Entertain. Educate. Encourage. I entertain through the elements of fiction by making the characters in my imagination come alive on the page. I educate by presenting an historical period and event after countless hours of research. I encourage by giving a Christian world view where the characters grow and develop through their challenges.

Blessings,
