Wisdom Wednesday: Patricia Bradley

I don’t know about you, but I am glad it’s Wednesday, and time for our weekly writing tips!

This past week was rough. Our daughter sprained her ankle, so we’ve spent lots of time seeing two different doctors in addition to our weekly visit to St. Jude.

However, I’m excited to announce that Patricia Bradley is joining us today! I met her at a writing retreat last year and loved the workshop that she taught and chatting with her at lunch. She was a big encourager to me last year, and helped me to push myself to finish The Seer and seek publication.

Thank you for joining us, Patricia!


Name: Patricia Bradley

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Latest Novel: Justice Betrayed

Writing Tip:

Write what you love. If you write what you love, you will stay excited about your writing.

This is so true! When I first started writing, I was working on a chick lit series. I never finished that series, because deep down it wasn’t what I loved.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers:

Keep learning the craft and don’t give up. I wrote for over thirty years before my novel was published. But I kept learning the craft and writing…what if I’d quit at year thirty? If God calls you to write, He will get you published…in His timing. When God opened the door, I was ready to go through it.

Being patient isn’t always easy, but God’s timing is always perfect. Don’t give up!


It’s Elvis Week in Memphis, and homicide Detective Rachel Sloan isn’t sure her day could get any stranger when aging Elvis impersonator Vic Vegas asks to see her. But when he produces a photo of her murdered mother with four Elvis impersonators–one of whom had also been murdered soon after the photo was taken–she’s forced to reevaluate. Is there some connection between the two unsolved cases? And could the recent break-in at Vic’s home be tied to his obsession with finding his friend’s killer?

When yet another person in the photo is murdered, Rachel suddenly has her hands full investigating three cases. Lieutenant Boone Callahan offers his help, but their checkered romantic past threatens to get in the way. Can they solve the cases before the murderer makes Rachel victim number four?


Winner of an Inspirational Readers’ Choice Award in Suspense, Patricia Bradley lives in North Mississippi with her rescue kitty, Suzy, and loves to write suspense with a twist of romance. Her Logan Point and Memphis Cold Case Novels are available at all on-line retailers and major bookstores. JUSTICE Betrayed, the third book in the Memphis Cold Case Novels released June 5, 2018.

Her workshops on writing include online courses with American Christian Fiction Writers, workshops at the Mid-South Christian Writer’s Conference, ACFW Minnesota NICE and Memphis ACFW. When she has time, she likes to throw mud on a wheel and see what happens.

Wisdom Wednesday: Michelle De Bruin

I’m sorry for the delay in my Wisdom Wednesday post! Sometimes, life does not always go as planned, especially when your daughter inherited your balance skills, or rather, the lack thereof. I spent the majority of the day at the doctor for her sprained ankle. They do not think it’s broken, but we have to wait for swelling to go down for another checkup on it.  She’s in a walking boot and it’s still hurting some, but she is doing better!

This week, our guest is author Michelle De Bruin. Thanks for joining us, Michelle.

Name: Michelle De Bruin

Genre: Historical Christian Romance

Upcoming Novel: Hope for Tomorrow 

Writing Tip: 

Read as much as you write. Become familiar with what others in your genre are doing. Stay informed on current events and world happenings. Choose a trusted voice in non-fiction to read for your own growth and spiritual formation.

This is my favorite tip because it keeps me in relationship with fellow authors. It helps me stay sensitive to people’s deepest needs, and it encourages me as I continue on my own faith journey.

Great tips! I’m always amazed at people who say that want to write but do not like to read. Reading is a must to stay updated in the industry and to learn the craft.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Take the time and make the effort to find and develop your own voice. Not necessarily the voice that is heard when you speak, but the one that is felt when you begin to put words on paper. It belongs to you and is the unique gift the Lord gave you to share your faith experiences. Over time, a new writer will have much to offer if they follow the tip above and then share how they are learning and growing through the blessing of their own voice.

If you’re genuine with your voice, your readers will connect with you on a deeper level. Great tip!

Wisdom Wednesday: Amy R. Anguish

I’ve watched my fair share of cartoons and then some. With three kiddos it goes without saying, that I stay saturated in animated TV shows and movies. Gabe, my youngest, goes through phases of favorites. He just got of an Angry Bird phase, and now is in a Pokémon phase. However, for some reason, as I was getting our Wisdom Wednesday blog ready, one of the songs from Bubble Guppies popped into my head. You know the one, “What time is it?” It’s time for lunch!” the one that never seems to go away after you hear it? For some reason, I could hear the school teacher say, “What time is it?” and Wisdom Wednesday popped into my head in place of “it’s time for lunch”. It’s funny how your brain remembers things that you haven’t seen in a long time, and I definitely haven’t seen Bubble Guppies in forever, but there it was ready to pop into my head and stay there.

Or maybe, I just need to go eat lunch?

Regardless, that’s what we need to do with writing tips. Remember what others have gone through and accomplished and commit them to our memory so we can recall them when we need it.

Today’s Wisdom Wednesday is with Christian romance author, Amy R. Anguish.

Welcome, Amy!


 

Name: Amy R. Anguish

Genre: Christian romance

Latest NovelAn Unexpected Legacy

Writing Tip: 

This is probably actually more of an editing tip because it seems like editing takes up so much more time than the actual writing. But, my tip is to take the criticisms you can use and use them, and throw the rest away. When my editor and I were going through Legacy, fine-tuning everything and making sure it was as strong as it could be, several times I took her suggestions and told her I thought my way was better. Most of the time, when I explained why, she might tweak it a little, but let me keep it my way. It’s my story and I didn’t want to lose that. Together, we made it stronger, but it was still mine in the end. Find an editor willing to work with you that way. You don’t want to lose your story in all the edits.

As an Developmental Editor, it is one of my goals to make sure they book stays true to the author’s ideals and goals. Yes, I make suggestions, and show strengths and weakness, but my goal is to make sure that the book comes out the strongest it can. It takes a partnership between the editor and author to do that.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Don’t give up. It took me years to get published (six, to be exact, from the time I wrote Legacy to when it was published). It took several years to work up the nerve to send it out, and then another to find the right publisher, and two more to actually get it completely edited and ready to go. It takes time, but it’s worth it. So, don’t give up! And when your friends and family tell you how good your story is, believe them. Somewhere out there is a publisher who will agree.

This is the key right here. If you give up, you won’t ever get anywhere. Keep writing, keep trying, and most importantly, keep growing and learning.


An Unexpected Legacy tweaked

Smoothies brought them together, but would the past tear them apart?

When Chad Manning introduces himself to Jessica Garcia at her favorite smoothie shop, it’s like he stepped out of one of her romance novels. But as she tentatively walks into a relationship with this man of her dreams, secrets from their past threaten to shatter their already fragile bond.  Chad and Jessica must struggle to figure out if their relationship has a chance or if there is nothing between them but a love of smoothies.

Wisdom Wednesday: Amy C. Blake

I apologize for the delay in posting today, but we just got home from an extended stay in Memphis at St. Jude. Our youngest had to get braces for his ankles. The chemo has caused leg pain, and he has started walking on his tip toes to try to compensate for the pain. Now his tendons are becoming tight, so this is an effort to get him to walk flat footed and make sure that he doesn’t lose any range of motion.

With all that being said, I’m glad to be home, and get to our Wisdom Wednesday interview!

Today, I have author Amy C. Blake on the blog. Thanks for joining us, Amy!


Name: Amy C. Blake

Genre: Christian suspense

Latest Novel: Tie-Dyed

Writing Tip: 

One of my favorite writing tips is to read extensively in your genre. What’s more fun than reading a novel and calling it work? Of course, there’s the added benefit of learning pacing, characterization, and story structure as you read.

Exactly! Reading is one of my favorite things to do, so it’s fun to call it work! Plus, as a Developmental Editor, I get to read a lot of books. =) 

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Some of the best advice I can offer new writers is to learn the craft and be teachable. Study good writing books. Attend conferences. Take classes. Join critique circles and be open to what your critique partners tell you. When they offer suggestions for improvement, they aren’t being mean. They’re trying to help you improve. Be gracious in accepting feedback and work to do better.

One of the hardest things to learn when you are starting out is to accept feedback and not take it to heart. Writing is such a personal thing, and writers put their heart and soul into their works. Sometimes, it’s hard to take advice, but it’s something that we have to do in order to grow and learn.

Nat Montgomery is an expert hider. With a promiscuous, volatile addict for a mother, she has long since perfected the art of concealing herself behind humor. An art history major in Washington, DC, with an internship at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, Nat receives a nineteenth-birthday gift from her beloved grandmother, Gigi, who raised her and who died six months previously. The gift is a laptop containing time-release video clips of Gigi’s revelations about Nat’s grandfather, murdered in 1964 when he worked for a secret racial reconciliation group that met after hours in the Smithsonian museums. The murderer was never found, and Gigi’s family always believed he abandoned her and her unborn child. Knowing the hole Grandpa Bobby’s disappearance left in Gigi’s heart, Nat resolves to discover the truth of what happened to him. But when her roommate Cadence disappears after asking questions about the long-dead past, Nat fears Bobby’s killer is still a threat. Casting off her inclination to hide, Nat determines to find the person who kidnapped Cadence and who may well have killed her grandfather a half-century earlier.

Wisdom Wednesday: Kathy Cretsinger

I love world building. There’s not a more exciting thing to do than creating a new story idea, characters, and the world that they live in. Right now, I’m working on a story for a writing contest and I’m having a lot of fun talking with my husband and a couple friends about plot ideas and world building. I am also finishing up editing a wonderful new book for MRP, but that will have to wait for just a little bit while we discuss Wisdom Wednesday!

Today I have Kathy Cretsinger, is the owner of Mantle Rock Publishing, (my publisher for The Seer) and writes under the name of Katt Anderson. Welcome, Kathy!

Pen Name: Katt Anderson

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Latest Novel: Smoky Mountain Brides

Writing Tip: 

Have fun with your writing, know the basics of writing. If you’re having fun, you’ll not get bogged down and have writer’s block so much.

UGH. The dreaded writer’s block. It happens to all of us, and I did have a few times where I struggled with this during The Seer. But I think Kathy is on to something here. Remember why you started writing in the first place. What drew you to write this story? If you have fun with it, the pressure seems to leave and guess what? Your creativity is back.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Read each agent/publisher’s submission page on their website. Learn the craft.

This is so important. Every agent/publisher has different guidelines for their submission policy. Do your research, and submit it the way they specify, don’t deviate. This will help your manuscript have the best first impression.

Kyla Porter and Becki Hunley had been friends since childhood. They had gone to church and school together and had graduated from the University of Tennessee. They parted ways when Becki moved to Nashville to enter the country music field while Kyla continued her education in veterinary school and eventually moved to northern Mississippi to practice veterinary medicine.

Scarred by a tragic ending to a relationship, Kyla finds it hard to trust any man, even the handsome teacher she meets at Graceland, who seems too good to be true. Becki finds the perfect man for her, a handsome doctor she meets at church, and both she and Kyla become engaged within a few months of each other. They had always dreamed of being each other’s maid or matron of honor when they married, but their plans are in jeopardy when their wedding dates are in conflict. Will they be able to solve their dilemma, or will their dream die?

Wisdom Wednesday

Wisdom Wednesday: Laura V. Hilton

Thank you to everyone for your support and kind words for me during my Release Day yesterday! I’m anxiously waiting Friday, where we can get together and celebrate! We will have a fun backdrop for pictures and props, refreshments, giveaways, and book signing.

 Last night, I was interviewed for a podcast, and while you will have to check back in a couple weeks to hear the interview, one of the questions Linda Fulkerson asked got me thinking about how important it is for new writers to have support and help as they write their first book. I got to talk a little bit about my role as a Developmental Editor last night, and I am going to start blogging more about this type of editing and why it is beneficial for any writer, no matter how many books they have published.

On today’s “To Do List” is assembling all of my center pieces for my Launch Party, but before I go do that, I wanted to share this week’s Wisdom Wednesday. Let’s see what wisdom Laura is giving us today.

Name: Laura V. Hilton

Genre: Contempoary Amish romance

Latest NovelLove By the Numbers 

Writing Tip: 

Put a button by your computer – it stands for Put your butt on a chair and write.

Haha, I love it! Sometimes it’s hard to sit down and make yourself write. For me, I stay at home with my youngest son, so my office is in my house and it’s hard to not let myself get distracted when I need to be writing.

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

Read. A lot. Join a critique group. Develop thick skin.

I love it when other authors remind us to read. I feel like sometimes we get caught up in writing, that we push that to the side, but it’s so very important. You have to read to continue to grow.

Developing thick skin is also important. Not everyone is going to love your genre that you write, or the story that you write and that’s okay! Critique groups are here to help you learn, so listen with an open heart. This is not always easy to do, but we must keep at it and keep learning.


LoveByTheNumbers

After her fiancé dies in a buggy accident, Lydia Hershberger is invited to Jamesport to manage her Mennonite aunt’s gift store while her aunt and uncle are on a mission trip. While there, Lydia gets acquainted with her aentie’s best friend, Bethel Bontrager, and her grown son, Caleb. Lydia is surprised to find herself drawn to handsome clockmaker, Caleb Bontrager. But in spite of an instant flame of attraction between them, he doesn’t seem interested. In fact, pesky Caleb treats her like he doesn’t even like her.

Bright and sparkly. That’s Caleb’s first impression of Lydia. He’s always been attracted to sparkly things. In fact, his affinity for those things, and the trouble they can cause, are exactly why he’s determined to change his ways and settle down. With Lydia’s aentie gone, he is handling the books for the gift shop and is forced to spend too much time in her presence.

When God offers Lydia a second chance at love and family, will she take it? Or will the secret Caleb harbors cause her even more heartbreak?


Laura pictureLaura V. Hilton is an award-winning, sought-after author with over twenty Amish, contemporary, and historical romances. When she’s not writing, she reviews books for her blogs, and writes devotionals for blog posts for Seriously Write.

Laura and her pastor-husband have five children and a hyper dog named Skye. They currently live in Arkansas. One son is in the U.S. Coast Guard. She is a pastor’s wife, and homeschools her two youngest children.

When she’s not writing, Laura enjoys reading, and visiting lighthouses and waterfalls. Her favorite season is winter, her favorite holiday is Christmas.

Wisdom Wednesday

Wisdom Wednesday: Bethany Baker

I’m really enjoying Wisdom Wednesday! Everyone needs encouragement, and if you’re an author or a writer, you need it too. Writing can be different things to different people. For me, I’ve always dreamed of having my name on a print book, and to hold that book in my hands. When my books arrive in the mail soon, I will be able to see that dream come true. Next Tuesday, my dream of being published is coming true. (release day!)

Sometimes, writing can be a product of someone’s dreams, or something that they have to do. Writing can also be healing, when spoken words and actions are hard to say or do, the written word can soothe and help us say exactly what we are feeling.

Writing can also be hard. It’s difficult to put yourself out there, to have others read your words and critique them. It’s hard to be vulnerable, to be transparent. Sometimes that’s why we need encouragement, and tips from others who’s been there.

Let’s see what we can learn from Bethany Baker today.


Name: Bethany Baker

Genre: Historical Romance

Latest NovelA Light in Bailey’s Harbor 

Writing Tip: 

Less is more.

My mother would faint dead away if she knew I was giving advice like this. I’ve always been one to spill my guts in any and every situation. Don’t tell me a secret. I’ll just warn you up front. It’s not that I don’t try, and it’s not that I want to be disloyal. It’s just that words are not meant to be bottled up. They must be free! Well, at least this is the motto I lived by up until a couple of years ago when I went through the editing process for A Light in Bailey’s Harbor. I quickly realized that all of the extra “blab” we use in fun conversations just doesn’t transfer over into good writing.

The best advice I could give would be to simplify your story line. Even though all writers has a different writing/planning style, they need to narrow down their characters and cut any extraneous events/story lines. This was the hardest thing I’d ever done. I felt like I was abandoning my own children when I cut these extra characters from my novel. But in the end, it made my story line much stronger and more focused. If you’re unsure of what to cut, ask your trusted friends. It’s hard to be objective with your own writing. Of course everything you write is wonderful, because you wrote it, right? But if your friends are confused about the flow of your story or the significance of a character, there’s a good chance some creative cutting is needed. Just pull out the box of tissues, say your goodbyes to your “babies,” and move on. If it makes you feel better, do what I did. Make a file for all of your “cast offs.” I promise you’ll go back and read those edited characters and deleted scenes and realize they are better off in a cozy little file all by themselves. They’ll never even know what they’re missing, and believe me, neither will your readers!

This is such good advice! As a Developmental Editor, I also tell my authors to cut the unnecessary backstory. If it’s not driving the story forward, it’s not needed. If it drags down the story, your reader will get bored, and we have to keep them in the bubble of reading. As an author, I also know how hard it is to do that to your “babies”. 

Favorite Writing Tip for New Writers: 

I would encourage them by saying, “Don’t give up!” If you feel that the Lord has given you a gift and given you a message to share, then write. It won’t be easy, especially the editing process, but if you stick with it, you can do it. I started the first manuscript to A Light in Bailey’s Harbor when I was 16. With all of the hurdles life placed in my way, I never dreamed I would ever publish my novel. But 19 years later, my dream did become a reality. Through it all, I truly believe God had a message He wanted to deliver through the publishing of A Light in Bailey’s Harbor, so He worked out the details in His own time and for His own glory. He can do the exact same for others.

This speaks directly to my heart, because The Seer was a long process for me. I remember praying that if I was supposed to be a writer, (I knew I was but struggled with such doubt) that he would give me a burning desire for this story that I couldn’t get rid of. That story stayed in my mind 24/7. When I wasn’t writing, I would be reminded, “You need to write this!” When The Seer was finished, I remember just sitting back and crying. It was done. I did it. Such a great feeling!


51rJ5OqkKnL._SY346_Katy Kippling has an abundance of personality, or so she was told by a recent male acquaintance. Trying to conform to the etiquette of an 1880’s lady is difficult enough, without adding the challenges of having an abundance of personality.

Katy loves the Cana Island Lighthouse, serving her small lakeside town in Bailey’s Harbor, Wisconsin. In the summer of 1880, the new lighthouse keeper arrives. While Katy imagines his stately captain’s beard and noble brow, Blake Strawberry, the new keeper, is quite the opposite. Blake is a young man searching for something to heal the pain and heartaches of his past. By moving west and accepting this new position, he plans to forget all of his painful memories and disappointments. What he hasn’t counted on is that the Lord’s voice can be heard just as clearly in Wisconsin as in Massachusetts.

Throughout the story, another character, Horatio Spafford and his beloved hymn, “It Is Well With My Soul,” play integral roles in the characters’ lives. Will Blake surrender to the message of this song and allow it to change his life as it has changed the lives of those he loves? Will Katy move beyond her tangible child-like faith and trust that her Heavenly Father can truly make her soul well even when she doesn’t understand His ways? And will Blake and Katy relinquish the control they have on their own lives allowing the Lord to work in His time and in His perfect way, understanding that His ways are not always our ways.

Wisdom Wednesday (1)

Thanks for joining us this week, Bethany! Next week, we will have author, Laura Hilton.
