Change is in the air

Big news and exciting changes coming to my blog in 2009!

First off, as some of you already know, I have the extreme privilege of serving American Christian Fiction Writers for the next two years as Vice President.

In order for my fiction writing not to suffer and still maintain this blog and stay connected with all of you (my blog readers), I am instituting some changes for 2009.

Rather than having a monthly prompt contest, I will simply be posting regular writing prompts aka story starters.

For the next two years, the prompt contest in its current form will be on hold. Instead I'll simply offer writing prompts.

I will offer other things in addition, but that's one of the major changes.

I hope to resume the actual contest after my term as VP of ACFW is up.

Thank you SO much for your readership! And if you're a reader but not a writer, stay tuned because I have stuff geared in 2009 toward you reader-only types as well!

Holiday Eating Tips




1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. It's rare.. You cannot find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-alcoholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. if something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. as for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple, Pumpkin, Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Re-read tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner. Remember this motto to live by:

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Have a Merry Christmas!

Review & Giveaway: A Constant Heart by Siri Mitchell

Siri Mitchell has written five novels, two of which (Chateau of Echoes and The Cubicle Next Door) were named Christy Award Finalists. A graduate from the University of Washington with a business degree, she has worked in many levels of government and lived on three continents. She currently resides in the Washington DC metro area. Visit

Born with the face of an angel, Marget Barnardsen is blessed. Her father is a knight, and now she is to be married to the Earl of Lytham. Her destiny is guaranteed ... at least, it would seem so. But when her introduction to court goes awry and Queen Elizabeth despises her, Marget fears she's lost her husband forever. Desperate to win him back, she'll do whatever it takes to discover how she failed and capture again the love of a man bound to the queen.

A Constant Heart-my review:

This book took longer to get through than most, but that was a good thing. The historical detail and language was so authentic I couldn't blow through the book. This is one of those books, like a sublime, delicacy-laden meal, that you just want to take your time and savor it.

A couple of minor plot threads felt like they got left I'm hoping there is a sequel that will bring closure to those. Can't say what they are because I don't want to ruin the story for you, but I'll say one word and leave it at that: Baby.

This cover is absolutely gorgeous and I'm really, really hoping the sister gets her own story. And I know how I think the hero could be...but again, I can't give it away.


You will feel transported right into Queen Elizabeth's regent court. I learned several things through this book about England history that I otherwise might not have known. Hint: poisonous makeup.

One thing I loved through that is that the book never felt like a history lesson. The author did a wonderful job of embedding the facts nicely into the story so nothing seemed forced.

Highly recommended!

Interview with Linore Rose Burkard

Linore Rose Burkard has a debut book with Harvest House this month titled Before the Season Ends.

ABOUT Linore: She writes Spirit and Sensibility
for the Jane Austen Soul. In her books you will find fast-paced adventure and falling-in-love. Humor, and all the Regency atmosphere you could want. Feisty heroines who aren't afraid to fall on their knees to pray. Twists and turns when you least expect them. And happy endings made in Heaven

Romance you can share with your mother, daughter, sister, or friend (and don't forget Grandma)

I have an interview with Linore here:

1. If your heroine could write a one paragraph blurb about you, the author of her story, what might she say?
>From the mouth of Ariana Forsythe, from 1813 London:

Linore's been fair with me, I grant, but she is not letting me say enough! First of all, has it been obvious to any of you
readers that I am truly swooning, at heart, for Phillip? Yes, she allowed me to run into his arms, to kiss him impulsively,
but how many times, I ask you? Once, when he came to me repentantly after being bamboozled by the Carlton House set,
and once when he returned to me from Chesterton. I must say, Ms. Burkard, could you not do better? I am in love for the
first time in my life! I have never seen, nor can I imagine, a man more noble in features and character than my betrothed!
He sets my heart aflutter and sometimes confounds me (even me) in my speech! Surely he is a man who deserves a little more
affection, wouldn't you say?

2. What about the hero?

>From the mouth of Phillip Mornay, the Paragon:

Why on earth didn't you send Ariana to me earlier? I could have been spared a near decade of tiresome pursuits and company
as you well know. Was it beyond your capability to write me in younger? I daresay it would have cost you devilish little trouble and yet
you left me wallowing in my cynicism and agnosticism--for what? To what purpose? And pray, do not say it was on account of some
authorial whim or fancy--that won't answer, I assure you.

3. Where is your favorite place to write and why?

My favorite place to write hasn't appeared anywhere but in my imagination. I envision somewhere quiet and totally alone. In real life, I'd be too timid
to venture to such a place. (Say, the middle of the Adirondacks.) The other problem with this favorite place is that, when I stop writing for the day or night, I love
having my family around me. If I go to a truly lonely retreat, I'd get lonely when I'm not working! For me, I believe it's really a matter of WHEN is my favorite time to write. I love writing when everyone is out, or asleep, or just doing their own things. I too often find myself writing in the midst of questions, interruptions, and needs. I believe I am called to these interruptions, as much as to writing, but it does get frustrating, coming up to reality and then plunging back down into my story, over and over. It's a sort of work in its own right.

4. If your heroine lived in the here and now, where would she be this moment and what would she be doing?

Wonderful question! Ariana would be on the Board or Committee in charge of sending out missionaries to foreign countries, or
visiting Africa with care packages for the poor. She'd be an assistant at an orphanage in China, or a medical aide in a makeshift "hospital" somewhere in
India. She's smart enough to survive in the working world, such as being an office manager, say, but her heart is to help the needy and spread the gospel.

5. Let's pretend your hero hasn't met her yet. If he showed up where she was, what would be the first thing he'd say to her and why?

Supposing we go with the scenario of her getting hands-on in a missionary hospital, then, Mr. Mornay would no doubt give her one look
and his face would crumple into a frown. (A handsome frown, that is.) He'd say, "And what is your business here?"
"I am to be your aide, sir!"
"My aide? Who on earth sent you? I should think you would stick to the schoolroom. Teach the little natives English, but leave hosptial to those who shan't swoon at the sight of blood, if you please!"

6. What are you working on now?

My new website, new resources for readers, a "Myths and Mysteries of the Regency" report; and swapping ideas with my editor about
what book I'll do next. (Possibly a third in the Regency Series, to follow the story after The House in Grosvenor Square.)

7. What could be the highest compliment a reader could say upon closing the last page of your book?

The highest compliment would be that the book revealed God to them in a new way, giving them hope for eternal life.

8. What was your favorite scene to write and why?

There's this scene where Mr. Mornay has to call upon Ariana, expecting her to have lost all her regard for him. I laughed out loud when I wrote his reaction to the way
she greets him. It's one of my favorite scenes in the book. Originally, (and in my self-published version) I had her giggling as she moves toward him, because she is amused by his reaction, too, but that giggle was edited out.

9. What was the hardest scene to write and why?

One of the scenes that everyone seems to love, and the one that started the whole book in my mind: the tree scene. The heroine impulsively climbs a tree on a beautiful
day when she is quite alone in a small wooded spot on a posh estate. Then she gets stuck. I must have re-written the actual climbing, the way her dress gets stuck, the way the estate looks to her, at least a dozen times! Maybe two. I don't even know. It was tricky because it's not your average thing to do when you're at a posh estate and you're a newcomer to the scene. I had to make it seem reasonable. Then, I had to get her stuck in a way that was believable. I guess I worked at it long enough, because people mention loving that scene long after they've finished the book.

10. How can readers stay in touch with your new releases, etc? Do you have a Web site or a blog or newsletter url you'd like to share?

I write a montly, illustrated "e-zine," with Regency -related content. I also include my latest announcements, and I encourage readers to sign up for it. I give away monthly free downloads, too, which should be of interest to anyone who likes either the Regency or historical fiction, or history. Anyone can sign up for free by going to my homepage:

GIVEAWAY & REVIEW of A BRIDE SO FAIR by Carol Cox with author interview

This is a dreadfully late book review on a story I LOVED.

Readers, if you haven't read Carol Cox's Fair series, I highly recommend you get them. Set in Chicago during the 1800's World Fair, this story had my attention in the first page. I LOVED how the characters interacted with one another. I fell in love with them by the first few paragraphs which I think is why the book was so hooky. Not only that, I could see and hear and feel and smell the setting. The author writes in such a way that the reader experiences the story rather than just reads it.

Writers: If you want an EXCELLENT example of how to Show vs Tell...GET THIS BOOK! In fact, this would make a great stocking stuffer or Christmas gift.


After growing up in an orphanage, Emily Ralston loves being around children and thoroughly enjoys her job at the Children’s Building at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. As the receptionist she helps check in the children and ensures they are safe and well cared for while their parents view the fair. She could not have known what God had in store for her…
When Columbian Guard, Stephen Bridger, drops off a three-year-old named Adam as a lost child, her life irrevocably changed. While the sparks of attraction are undeniable, Emily tries her best to ignore them as she and her best friend, Lucy, scheme to keep Adam safe and happy, far away from the orphanages they both know too well.
Soon Stephen learns about Adam’s mother while both the mystery and his relationship with Emily deepens. As they learn bits of truth, danger and deception now threaten to undermine their growing relationship. Why is a young woman murdered while surrounded by thousands of fairgoers? What secrets could a sweet, abandoned little boy possibly hold? Can Emily and Stephen solve the deadly mystery before time runs out?


Award-winning author of twelve novels and eleven novellas, Carol shares her love of history, mystery, and romance in the books she writes. A pastor’s wife, Carol makes her home with her husband and young daughter in northern Arizona. To learn more about Carol and her books, visit her Web site at Carol Cox Books.

Below is an interview sent to me by Glass Road PR:

Q&A with Carol Cox, author of A Bride So Fair
Q. Where did you get the idea to write A Bride So Fair?
A. Several years ago, I came across a brief article that mentioned the World’s Columbian Exposition held in Chicago in 1893, calling it a pivotal moment in our nation’s history. And my response was, “If it was such a big deal, how come I’ve never even heard about it?” So I looked it up online and was overwhelmed at the wealth of information I found. I had no idea how many of the things we take for granted today were introduced at that fair—things like the Ferris wheel, Cracker Jacks, Cream of Wheat, Juicy Fruit gum, and the concept of the Midway. Familiar names from our history books were among the 27 million people who visited the fair. Thomas Edison, Scott Joplin, Frederick Douglass, Jane Addams, and Susan B. Anthony were all there. It was a moment in which our nation felt itself on the brink of major change, and the more I learned about the fair, the more excited I became. I knew I had to set a story there, and that initial idea turned into a three-book series, A Fair to Remember. A Bride So Fair is the final title, and it was hard to say goodbye to the setting and characters I’ve come to love.
Q. How much research is involved in writing a solid historical fiction novel like this one?
A. I was so fascinated by what I learned about the fair that I continued researching for two years before the first book in the series was even contracted. As I mentioned above, I found a tremendous amount of information online, including photos of the fairgrounds and its buildings. I was able to purchase several books printed during that time period that gave detailed descriptions of exhibits as well as the reactions of people who visited the fair. That was invaluable in getting insight into how it affected people of that day. I studied maps of the grounds and floor plans of several of the buildings until I felt like I could navigate them as easily as I can get around my home town.

All of that helped in getting my facts straight, but I needed to add sensory details to make the setting come alive. What would my hero and heroine experience on the shore of Lake Michigan? What would they see, hear, smell? How would it feel to walk across the vast fairgrounds or stroll along the edge of the lagoon? I made a trip to Chicago, where I spent a day at Jackson Park, the site of the exposition. All but one of the buildings are long gone, but simply being there and soaking up the setting added a myriad of details for me to draw on when writing the story. At that point, I could look at my research photos and feel like I could step into the scene and describe it as though I’d actually been there.

Q. What inspires you the most as a writer?

A. It’s always interesting to hear what sparks ideas for other writers. For some, it springs from a character; for others, the catalyst is an issue they’re passionate about. With me, the setting often comes before either the characters or the plot. A particular place will catch my imagination and I’ll wonder what kind of people might have been there and what would have happened to them. I love the challenge of bringing a setting to life so it becomes something a reader can experience rather than just read about.

Q. You’ve written quite a few novels already, do you have any advice for aspiring novelists?

A. Read in a wide variety of genres to discover which holds the most appeal for you. Your writing will show far more depth and passion if you're working in a genre you love.

Be patient. Prepare to learn and gear yourself mentally for a marathon, not a sprint. The learning process takes time.

Study the craft of writing. There are excellent books available, covering everything from basic grammar to character development to plot and structure and much more. A number of organizations exist today that offer teaching, encouragement, and support to both aspiring and experienced writers. And writers conferences are held all around the country. Attending conferences is a wonderful way to build on your knowledge as well as getting to know others who share your passion for writing.

Develop a teachable attitude. The more I write, the more I realize how much more there still is to learn. There is always the joy of growing, of improving my skills, of learning to be a “workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (from 2 Timothy 2:15 NIV)

December Christian Fiction Releases

This list was compiled by Jill Eileen Smith, whose book cover for Michal I just saw and LOVE! Visit her Web site to view it.

Here is a short list of a small portion of December Christian Fiction releases: This list is by no means conclusive. For instance, Barbour puts out four Heartsong Presents a month and Steeple Hill puts out four Love Inspired Romances as well as Love Inspired Suspense and Love Inspired Historicals.

Hope you will consider some of those as Christmas gifts. Steeple Hill has some EXCELLENT Christmas stories. The books would make great stocking stuffers and won't dent your pocketbook.

If you're not a huge fan of category(shorter) length romance...what's WRONG with you?


I meant to say, if you're not a huge fan of category romance, check out some of these other fiction releases. Although I'm partial to Steeple Hill. Grin.

1. A Promise for Spring by Kim Vogel Sawyer from Bethany House. Can their promise of love survive more than just years of separation?

2. Before the Season Ends by Linore Rose Burkard from Havest House Publishers. A heroine who embodies "Principles" meets the man who is all "Pride." What happens when they clash in Regency London makes adventurous innocence well worth reading!

3. Deceptive Promises, Delaware Brides, book 3 by Amber Miller from Barbour/Heartsong Presents. Living during the American Revolution, Margret Scott gets involved with a spy and a life of deception that could endanger herself, her family, and the man she loves.

4. Flashover by Dana Mentink from Steeple Hill. Ivy Beria's life explodes when arson robs her of her job and the man who set it hunts her down.

5. Missouri Brides by Mildred Colvin from Barbour Publishing. Three women tied together by family find true love on the Missouri prairie of the 1800s.

6. The Owling, Shadowside Series - Book 2 by Robert Elmer from Zondervan. Life gets even more confusing for fifteen-year-old Oriannon when her former music mentor, Jesmet, miraculously returns from the dead and promises his students a special power called Numa.
