Throughout our lives we have to make choices. The choices we make may determine a good or bad outcome in our lives. As an author, I get to make choices for my characters, in their back stories and in their present circumstances. Some of my characters have made bad choices in the past, and now they have to live with the results of their bad choices. Since I write romances, thankfully, that means in the end the choices my characters make lead to a happy ending. I love to lead my characters down a path of choices that result in a happy ending. Sometimes there are a few detours along the way, but then they make that ONE choice the propels them toward that happy ending. I love happy endings. Don’t you?
Since I not only write romance, but Christian romance, a spiritual element may go into the choices my characters make. Often my characters wrestle with a choice that is pleasing to themselves or to God. As a Christian, I know which choice will lead to the best outcome, even though my characters may not see it at the time. How often have you looked back on your life and realized that following God’s path was the right choice, or circumstances that you thought could never lead to a happy ending, do just that because of the work of God?
Currently, I have a book on sale for 99 cents. The hero and heroine of Annie’s Hope have made bad choices. When the story starts, the hero has turned his life around and has been leading an upstanding and sober life for several years, but the heroine has just started her journey to a better life.
Here’s what one Amazon reviewer has to say. “Merrillee Whren has a magical way of telling dramatic stories about women, faith, forgiveness, and family.”
You can find the ebook on sale at these vendors.
Here are all the books in The Village of Hope series. I hope you’ll look for all of them.
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you had made a different choice somewhere along the line? What choice did you make that you believe made a significant difference in your life?
