Writers get into the business because they like words… but not necessarily words spoken aloud. No, we generally prefer the written word. For me, writing a blog post to talk about my book is perfectly fine. I love the book, I believe in its message, and…. Christmas? Twins? Secrets? Dogs? Wounded heroes? Snowed in on a ranch? What’s not to like?
But my publisher asked me to do a Facebook Live to talk about the book, and I agreed (with fear and trembling) and it’s happening TODAY. At 2 p.m. ET. A video. Focused on me, talking. That has to be at least fifteen minutes long. I am so nervous!
I’m going to be talking about what’s great about Christmas books and Christmas… and what can be challenging about them. About what inspired this new book and who it’s written for. And about the series it’s part of, Redemption Ranch.
What else should I talk about? What would you as a reader like to know about the book, the writing life, or Christian romance generally? Should I let my dog be in the video? Pose a potential question in the comments before 2:00 ET today and you’ll be entered in a drawing for the first book in the series, The Soldier’s Redemption.
I hope you’ll come by my author page at 2:00 ET today… I could use the emotional support of my Inspy friends! And there’s another giveaway there. If you can’t come right at 2:00, that’s okay–the comments will be live for the rest of the day, so you’ll still have the chance to comment over there and be entered in the giveaway.
Meanwhile, here’s a teaser to whet your appetite for The Twins’ Family Christmas.
Pastor Carson Blair plans a quiet Christmas vacation for his twin girls—until veteran Lily Watkins gets snowed in with them. Lily is drawn to the warmth of this family, but she’s hiding a secret about Carson’s late wife that threatens more than their holiday. And the twins have their own plan—one that includes a gift-wrapped mommy to complete their family.
The Twins’ Family Christmas is available on shelves wherever Love Inspired books are sold, or at your favorite online retailer.
