Blog Tour: Why I'm Waiting - Chloe Hale

by Grace 27. June 2018 10:42

Hey everyone! Today I want to share with you and interview I did with Chloe Hale upon the release of her book Why I'm Waiting! Without further ado, here's the interview!

 

Hey Chloe! Thanks for joining me today! I'd like to start with some random questions so that our readers can learn a little more about you.

1. Favorite icecream flavor?

I really don't have a top favorite, I don't suppose! But I prefer the flavors that are not just plain-like cookies and cream, chocolate chip, strawberry swirl, etc.!

2. Favorite book?

Besides the Bible, the SHIELD series by Beth jane and Dawn of a Thousand Nights by Tricia Goyer!

3. A pet peeve?

People leaving lights one when they leave a room!

4. Favorite verse?

Isaiah 53:5 and Isaiah 55:8-13

5. Country or city?

Most definitely COUNTRY!! I've lived on the same farm my whole life and country life suits me great! 

6. Sweatpants and t-shirt or fancy dress?

Well, I'm a t-shirt gal (and jeans!), but I adore a big, fancy dress!! (not for around the farm, of course! lol) So guess I pick both!

7. Sweet or savory?

Sweet

8. Favorite color?

Hmm... A few of my tops are certain shades of pink, and I like teal, brown and certain blue shades! 

9. What's a favorite memory?

I have lots of nice memories, but one that I like is when I got some wood up my foot when I was really young, (we got the wood out) and when it was supper time, my older brother carried me on his back to the table! (my brother's pretty amazing)

10. Alright, onto the author-related questions. When did you first want to start writing? How long after that did you start?

Well....My older sister is a writer and I suppose I was just doing what she was doing at the time; I had tried to write before, but the books never amounted to anything. But I started this one book called Home Is Where The Heart Is (western fiction), and I musta been around 15, because I finished it the night before my 16th birthday. It started from there! I've written around 10 books now-and only this one if non-fiction!

11. Is "Why I'm Waiting" the first book you wrote?

No, it's my latest one!

12. When and how did you decide to write "Why I'm Waiting"?

Well, purity and waiting is one of my greatest passions, and I'm saddened when people are down because they don't have a person in their live yet. I wanted to write this book just to let everyone know Why I'm Waiting! And I want this to encourage them to know that God sees them as worth having the one He has for them, and I believe this book is God-inspired. He showed me things regarding purity during the research of this book thatI didn't know before!

13. Do you have a favorite chapter? If so, which is it? Why is it your favorite?

I'm not sure I have a favorite, but I believe chapter 2 titled Being Content is something that all single people need to hear! 

14. What was the hardest thing about writing this book?

I really didn't want to sound judgmental to people who do date, or do things before they're married. Sometimes I come off sounding like I'm judging people and I didn't want my readers to think I was doing that!

15. How long did it take you to write it?

I believe it took 4 days! It was easier because I was writing non-fiction, just sharing a subject with people! I didn't have to plan things to happen, etc. like you do with fiction!

16. Which of your books was your favorite to write? Which one was easier to write?

Oh, my! I don't really know which was my favorite to write...this was the easiest! 

17. What was one of your biggest inspirations for writing this book?

God was, and I reckon the desire that Jesus has given me for purity was an inspiration. No one knew I was writing this book (except my sister who knew what I was doing without me even telling her!)

18. If your readers could only remember one thing from reading your book, what would you want it to be?

That it will be so worth the wait when God brings the one he has for us into our lives! And to be content during that season of waiting, etc.! Jesus died for our purity, let's not deny it!! And even if we have made mistakes, Jesus restores and gives back what we lost!! 

Well, thank you so much for allowing me to do this! Congratulations on your first published non-fiction book!

Thank you so much for doing this! God Bless!!

Blog Tour: The Shield - Beth Jane

by Grace 25. January 2018 12:31

Hey everyone!

Today, I want to share with you the news that my friend Beth Jane is releasing her new book, The Shield! This is her first published book and I'm super excited to purchase myself a copy! I'm going to share an interview I did with Beth, but first of all, here's the description of the book - well, as a bonus, it's two books in one cover! Good deal, huh? Anywho, here's the book description:


But thou, O Lord, art a Shield for me; my glory, and the Lifter up of mine head.
The SHIELD.... Amy Riley is successful NYC photography, living in a gorgeous apartment with plenty of money.  She should be one of the happiest people on earth. But she's not? Why?
Because she's running from the calling God has for her in being a NYPD police officer. Fear grips her life. She feels she's not capable of the calling.
      With God's help, Amy take's the Savior's hand and launches on the journey of being an officer. Pain grips so much of her life. Hurt from a dark past stays with her.
     
But the importance of doing what God says is discovered.
      And most importantly, a SHIELD is found…. and is always there.
           
             The SHIELD 2.... Lydia Myers is a survivor of human trafficking; only she still lives in complete pain and torment.
The lead singer for a local band, Lights, is also a survivor of human trafficking, but lives in peace and happiness.
The singer starts a small group for girls who have come from human trafficking, hoping to encourage and share with them how she found freedom in Christ. She shares with them how they can find freedom too.
Lydia attends, hoping to find a way to find peace. She's so tired of living in torment. She knows something has to change.

Fear threatens the lives of several citizens of NYC. But, a SHIELD is found... and rediscovered….

 

And now... Here's Beth! Hey Beth! Glad we could do this!

Hey Grace! Me too! Thanks so much!

I'd like to start with some random questions so that our readers can learn a little more about you.
1. Favorite icecream flavor?
Hmm... favorite icecream flavor... Probably Strawberry!
2. Favorite book?
Besides the Bible... The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer!
3. A pet peeve?
Umm... well I have serveral... but I'm not sure what to answer!
4. Favorite verse?
I'll say John 14:27 and John 16:33! It's just sums up so much!
5. Country or city?
Both, but more country!
6. Sweatpants and t-shirt or fancy dress?
Also both, loll! Anyone relate?!
7. Sweet or savory?
Savory!
8. Favorite color?
I like a lot of them! But I'll say Black!
9. What's a favorite memory?
God moments, and family and friend moments!
10. Alright, onto the author-related questions. When did you first want to start writing? How long after that did you start?
Well when I was younger I would write things in notebooks but then decided writing wasn't for me. But in 2014 (I think) I was washing dishes and I got an idea for a book about a girl disguising herself as a man and fighting in the Civil War. It was called The Secret Soldier and I starting working on it that day or the next day! That's when got the enjoyment for writing! Praise God! It's really a passion now!
11. Is "The Shield" the first story you wrote?
No, it's 4th fiction story I've came up with!
12. When and how did you decide to write "The Shield"?
I had sorta decided I wasn't good at writing before I started to write The Shield. But when I got the idea I was walking in the hallway of my grannie's house after watching a TV episode about police and it involved human trafficking and I thought that I wanted to come up with something like that. I first did it into a movie for my sister and then I started writing it. And that's what I started writing after I thought I wasn't good at it!
13. Do you have a favorite character? If so, who is it? Why is he or she your favorite?
My favorite character is actually two, Amy Riley and Jim Blake! And I just like them. Amy's cool and Jim is quite and real good to go. I also patterned Amy after myself (But I'm not saying I'm cool, LOL!)i
14. What is your overall theme for "The Shield"?
Overcoming fear!
15. How long did it take you to write it?
Well the first one was over a year or a little less, I don't remember really, and the second was just shy of seven months!
16. So, you said that your book is two stories in one book. Which was your favorite to write? Which one was easier to write?
The first was probably my fav! And they both had difficult times so I'm not sure, but probably the 1st one!
17. Did the second story come to you after you wrote the first one, at the same time, or while you were still working on the first one?
I think it came to me after I finished the first one and during the editing process but maybe while was still writing! I'm not sure!
18. If your readers could only remember one thing from reading your book, what would you want it to be?
That Jesus is greater!
Well, thank you so much for allowing me to do this! Congratulations on your first published book!
Thanks for doing it!! And Thanks so much!!! God Bless!!!
