It's a Wrap - Interview with Cynthia Roemer

Hello, our lovely readers. Help yourself to a cup of hot cup cider and a heaping portion of apple crumble. Fall is finally here and so is Cynthia Roemer, my guest today.

Cynthia Roemer is the author of three wonderful books: Under This Same Sky, Under Prairie Skies, and Under Moonlit Skies. These midwestern prairie romances follow the hearts and struggles of three women as they deal with loss, love, and hard choices. Readers will forever be touched by the way Cynthia weaves real characters with real problems into stories which captivate. 

Let me introduce you to the woman herself.



CC: Welcome, Cynthia! I am so glad that you've joined me today. So tell us, what keeps you busy most days? 

CR:  I work at an elementary library two days a week. Most other days, when I’m not writing, I’m doing normal wife/mom things: cooking, laundry, cleaning, spending time with family

CC: Life in an elementary school is lots of fun. I'm so glad you get that experience! And I guess not even authors get to escape the day to day drudgery.

When you DO get to write, what does your workspace look like?

CR: Most days, I’m at my desktop in our living room. But when the weather is nice, I love going out on our porch with my laptop. 

CC: That sounds lovely. I hope you get to enjoy the outside weather a lot this Fall. It's one of my favorite times of the year.

Do you have any pets?


CR: At present, we have one cat named Chad. I named him and his sister Charlotte after the characters in my second novel when I was in the midst of writing it. Sadly, Charlotte got killed. Now Chad is one super-spoiled kitty!! 



CC: That is so sad!!! I am so glad Chad has you to spoil him. Speaking of your books...
How did it feel to wrap up the Prairie Skies series?

CR: Both sad and satisfying. I’ll so miss the characters and will always hold them in my heart, but trust the Lord will stir equally endearing characters in my imagination in the future! 

CC: What was the best part about writing this series?
CR: Creating the characters and also the research! These are probably my favorite parts of writing. Such fun!

CC: Do you have any plans for future projects?
CR: Currently, I’m researching and brainstorming for a fourth novel set during the latter part of the Civil War and immediately following it. It’s still formulating in my mind, but involves an injured Union soldier and a sympathetic Southern belle. At this point, it seems to be a standalone project…unless the Lord gives ideas for a series.  =)

CC: I love Civil War stories, especially with characters on opposite sides of the lines. We'll be praying for you as that idea develops! 

Thank so much for visiting with us. And dear readers, if you are interested in learning more about Cynthia's books you can check them out by clicking on the book covers below. 

  


GIVEAWAY
If we have FIVE or more commenters, one will be randomly selected to receive an E-copy of her first book in the series. (If you already have it, we'll sub it out for another book in the series.) 

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT week!

Interview with Romance Writer Delia Latham

What a whirlwind this life is! Full of tumbleweeds, hurricanes, and floods. Speaking of which, I feel like life has me by the hair and is swinging me around like a rag doll. 

My family and I have relocated from Indiana to Florida. I started a new job teaching in a very demanding position, and it's meant I come home and do little else but soak and sleep, work on the next day's lessons, and try to unpack a few boxes. We are still not unpacked after two months! 

Which is why this video of my lovely visit with Delia Latham was recorded in April and is just now seeing the light of day. But I believe that God's timing is perfect, and I know that there is someone out there who needs this encouragement! I was encouraged just editing it! There are a lot of writerly tips in this one. Whether you're a budding writer or a seasoned professional, there are juicy nuggets for everyone in this one. 



Get your lattes and crumpets ready, kick up your feet, and join us in the writing cave. We're so glad you're here!

Romantic Suspense Author Chloe S. Flanagan Shares Her Superpower Preference (with a Giveaway)

Welcome back to the Diamond Mine, friends. This week I'm pleased to introduce you to another wonderful author. Chloe S. Flanagan was kind enough to stop by an introduce herself and answer a few questions. Plus, be sure and stick around to the end because she's giving away an e-book of her latest release!

About


Chloe S. Flanagan is an author, technical writer, blogger, and graduate of New York University. She enjoys exploring the Christian walk frankly and thoughtfully in her fiction and in her blog, The Candid Corinthian. When she's not writing, Chloe loves music, travel, reading books in all genres, and spending time with family.

Connect: Facebook | Twitter






SW: I always like to start with a few Would You Rather Questions so we can learn some interesting things about you. Are you ready?

Would you rather know the history of any object you touched or be able to talk to animals?

CF: First of all, thank you so much for inviting me to chat today!
To answer the question, I would rather know the history of an object I touched. I’m a context driven person, so knowing where and with whom an object has been would help me understand its function and potential.

SW: Would you rather be able to teleport anywhere or read minds?

CF: Teleport! I’m an okay driver, but I’m not overly fond of it…especially on interstates. If I could simply step on a platform and *poof* arrive where I needed to go, it would eliminate a lot of stress from my life. 

SW: Plus going anywhere in the world in the blink of an eye sure is tempting (much more tempting than hearing what someone else is thinking, in my opinion). Would you rather have all traffic lights you approach be green or never have to stand in line again?

CF I’d rather have all the traffic lights be green. I actually like standing in line because it gives me a chance to whip out my kindle application and read or my “notes” application so I can write. 

SW: Ok, that’s it for those questions. Let’s talk books!

In addition to writing (both in your day job as a technical writer and as a fiction author), you are an avid reader. Give us a couple of your favorite reads.

CF: Oh, that’s tough! I’m glad you said a couple, though, so I’m not committing myself to just one. My two favorite genres to read are Historical Fiction and Suspense. In Historical, two of my favorites are A Change of Fortune by Jen Turano and With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin. For Suspense, I love Crossed Off by CC Warrens and Miranda Warning by Heather Day Gilbert. (Okay, okay, that was four, but they were different genres!)

SW: Four is acceptable :). Writing is often a solitary journey. Where to you find motivation and support for your writing journey?

CF: I have been blessed to find community all around me. When I was just starting to play with the idea of writing my first novel, I received a ton of encouragement from a good work friend who is a general market indie author. I also joined my local branch of the American Christian Fiction Writer’s group and met some amazing authors there. Not only that, through social media and various online groups, I’ve “met” countless talented, supportive indie and Christian authors as well as bloggers. 




SW: I love my local ACFW group. It's such a blessing to know you have others to cheer you along in your writing journey, isn't it? Do you have a writing space you can give us a peek into?

CF: One of my favorite places to write is the public library because it’s quiet and inspiring to be surrounded by so many books. As an added bonus, one of my local library locations has a coffee shop. The picture shows where I took a “little” snack break after a writing sprint. 











SW: My library has some nice study rooms but no coffee shop. Plus it's never open when I'm ready to write. You write romantic suspense novels. Tell us something interesting you’ve learned while researching your books.

CF: Well, I hope I’m not getting too graphic here, but in my first book, a couple of characters get shot, but not killed. While researching gunshots wounds, I learned that there are really no “safe” gunshot wounds. Movies will often show someone being hit in the shoulder or arm and someone will say, “Oh, it’s only a flesh wound.” But in reality, factors like blood loss and risk of infection can make hits to even non-vital organs very serious indeed. Also, in real life, people rarely keep running around after being hit by a bullet like they do in the movies.

SW: Give us a brief overview of No Longer a Stranger.

CF: No Longer a Stranger centers on Marion Sloan, an uptight ex-cop, and EJ Handler, a lovable goofball and computer nerd. They cross paths when Marion is hired to find out who is sabotaging the company EJ works for. The unlikely alliance they form leads to old secrets, new dangers, and a surprising romance. 

SW: Oh, I like the twist with the female "tough-guy." Are you working on another book now? What stage are you in with that?

CF: I am in the drafting stage of a book that I will be contributing to The Potter’s House Books Series 2. It will be an inspirational fiction novel with a hint of romance.


Thank you so much for hanging out with us this week, Chloe. I'm looking forward to reading No Longer a Stranger soon.


More about the Book

EJ Handler is the perpetual class clown, but he’s also a loyal friend and dedicated worker at the tech company he helped found. Friendship and work are the only commitments he needs. Yet a dangerous scandal quickly upsets his laid back life and dredges up the old heartaches that made him fear responsibility in the first place. His only hope rests in his faith and the reluctant assistance of a mysterious female detective.

Sloan is a tough, unemployed cop with a penchant for taking on the cares of the world by herself, when an unexpected job offer gives her the opportunity to do what she loves. Little does she know that a simple job will bring the infuriating, but endearing EJ and a chance at the friendships she’s avoided for so long.

Angela Couch: Historical Fiction to Melt Your Heart...And a Giveaway



I’m thrilled to have Angela Couch on The Diamond Mine today.



Doesn’t her cover art make you want to crack open her book to find out how deliciously wonderful her stories are? Let’s find out a little about her.


https://www.amazon.com/Return-Kings-Ranger-Hearts-War-ebook/dp/B07WGWR5CC/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=return+of+the+king%27s+ranger&qid=1567220098&s=gateway&sr=8-1

1.     Give me one fact about you as an author that most people don’t know.


I love a good fight (as long as a real person doesn’t get hurt). I’m a Second Dan Black Belt in Hap Ki Do and an instructor and love bringing a little bit of choreographing to the page with a good scuffle.



That’s a very interesting fact! I love reading a fight scene that is well done. Now, let’s see what else she has to say.



2.     As Christian writers, we long to share God’s love, goodness, and grace with others through our writing. But quite often our stories speak to us as much as our readers. How did God use this story to help you stretch and grow as a person?



Political tensions are pretty hot right now, but writing from both sides of a conflict remind me that most people are just people trying to get by. Their reasoning might not make a lot of sense on the surface but often there are deeper wounds and fears that made them who they are.



3.     Was there a scene you had to edit out which you really liked? Tell us about it.

Not in this book, that I can remember, but it is something I have done with other books. The Scarlet Coat went through many edits over the years (it was one of my earliest manuscripts) and while cutting is always painful, I do love the finished product!



4.     What is the quality you like the most about your heroine?

Her love of home and family. She’ll do whatever is necessary for the people she cares about.



5.     Being a writer is a busy life, isn’t it? I’m sure you’re working on something new to intrigue your readers. What’s in the works for you right now?


I’m very excited about a novella I am writing for Barbour Publishing called A Tempered Heart (1861—Charlottesville, Virginia)

Buried under a debt that is not his own, Thomas Flynn’s only focus is gaining his freedom. He has learned to keep his head low and not pay attention to the troubles of others, until a peculiar boy and his widowed mother show him how empty his life has become. After years of protecting her son from slights and neglect of the people closest to them, Esther Mathews is not sure how to trust the local blacksmith with her child…or her heart.

A Tempered Heart will release next spring in a novella set entitled: Blacksmith Brides. Keep a look out for it!


I live less than an hour from Charlottesville, so I'm excited about Angela's story. All you readers, get a copy today and find out what Angela has in store for all of her characters.

A blurb to make you ready to buy:


The war for American freedom is over, and the British have gone back to England. Myles Cunningham wants to go home as well, not knowing what has become of his family since he was forced into the Continental Army nine years earlier. He returns to the Mohawk Valley with the understanding that he is believed to have been shot for deserting—fiction that might be made real if anyone recognizes him as the son of a Tory, and a King’s Ranger.

Everything is wonderful in the growing community along the Mohawk River, except Nora Reid is still alone. With her brother happily settled and both of her younger sisters starting families of their own, Nora feels the weight of her twenty-four years. A long walk leads her to the overgrown rubble of the Cunningham homestead where a bearded stranger begins to awaken feelings she’d lost hope of ever experiencing.

With secrets abounding—including whether Myles even cares for her—Nora must determine what she is ready to give up and how far she will go to secure his affections. She begins to break through his defenses, but Myles can’t risk staying. Not if he loves her.


Bio:
To keep from freezing in the Great White North, Angela K Couch cuddles under quilts with her laptop. Winning short story contests, being a semi-finalist in ACFW’s Genesis Contest, and a finalist in the International Digital Awards also helped warm her up. As a passionate believer in Christ, her faith permeates the stories she tells. Her martial arts training, experience with horses, and appreciation for good romance sneak in there, as well. When not writing, she stays fit (and warm) by chasing after three munchkins.

Historical + Humor = Karen Witemeyer!

I am so stinking excited! You won't believe who is on the Diamond Mine this week. Squee! Yes, I have Karen Witemeyer and the whole mine yards!  Wow, am I on cloud mine or what?! (Warning: more eye-rolling puns ahead.) No, seriously, she's one of my fav authors. Yep, folks, I'm writing shotgun with one of today's best Christian authors! Karen was named #1 Reader's Favorite Christian Romance Author by Family Fiction Magazine not to mention she's a two-time ACFW Carol Award winner.  Read on, my friends, like little Read Riding Hood, ready for adventure. (*wink*) I think you will love her too! Let's begin. Puns upon a time. . .


PT: Tell us, Karen, how you began writing and how you chose your genre.

KW: I'm not one of those authors who always knew she wanted to write. I was just a kid who grew up loving to read. And daydream. I never actually wrote any of my daydreams down. They just lived in my head. As I went through college, professors would complement my academic writing, planting seeds of an idea that maybe someday I'd try my hand at writing. God nurtured those seeds over the next several years where I never did more than jot a few ideas down in a journal. I completed two degrees and had three babies before God grabbed that dream out of the soil of my heart and forced it into the sunlight. My husband lost his job due to down-sizing while I was a stay-at-home mom with three preschoolers. I naively thought I could start writing and contribute to the family income while staying home with my kids, not realizing it would take six years to sign my first book contract. Six months later, my husband and I were both working full-time, but by then the writing bug had bitten, and I knew this was a path God wanted me to pursue. So I did. Genre was never even a question. Historical romance all the way. It was all I ever read and the only genre I wanted to write. From Little House on the Prairie to Anne of Green Gables to Christy, my heart has always belonged to historicals.

PT: Do you write on a laptop or PC? Office or random spots (and what ARE those random spots, J)?

KW: I have learned to be flexible with when and where I write, thanks to the day job and family. I'll use any computer readily available. At home, I use a laptop in its most literal form—in my lap while I sit on my bed with my back propped up against the headboard. Not the best for my posture, but the extra cushion provided by my memory foam mattress makes those long weekend writing binges possible.

PT: What’s on your screen-eyed monster right now? A new book? Editing? Marketing? Or all of the above? Or other?

KW: This interview question. Ha! Actually, I just turned in a manuscript on August 15 for the first book in a new series. The title is At Love's Command and it features an ex-cavalry officer and a female doctor. Lots of action and adventure in this one, with plenty of romance thrown in, of course. Since turning that in, I've been putting together two workshops that I will be teaching at the American Christian Fiction Writers conference in September. One focuses on adding humor to your writing (the fabulous Regina Jennings is my co-presenter), and the other focuses more on the spiritual side—overcoming the darts Satan likes to throw at authors such as doubt, discouragement, pride, envy, greed, laziness, and burnout. Yes, I battle all of those at different stages of the writing journey. As for the next writing project, I'm about to embark on a new novella called The Kissing Tree Inn. It will be part of a collection that spans about 150 years centered around a majestic tree similar to the Century Tree at Texas A&M.


Regina will be part of that collection as well, along with Amanda Dykes and Nicole Deese. This is my first time to work with Amanda and Nicole, and I'm loving every minute of it! Wonderful ladies with great ideas. This is going to be a fabulous collection.

PT: Favorite color, food, and hobby/activity?

KW: Favorite color – Purple.
Favorite Food – Dove dark chocolate.
Favorite hobby – Counted cross-stitching.

PT: Introvert/Extrovert and how does that feed into your writing?

KW: I'm a big-time introvert. I can turn on the extrovert powers when necessary (teaching at conferences, interacting with readers, writing retreats, etc.), but my natural tendency is to hide myself away. This is helpful for a writer since it's hard to be productive with a lot of people around, but it can cause serious challenges with other aspects of the business, such as marketing and networking. In my novels, you'll notice I lean toward small towns or even remote ranches. I never thought about that until now, but that's probably a reflection of my introverted nature. Introverted does not equal timid, however. At least not in my imagination. All my heroines are feisty and brave and rarely afraid to share their opinions. Traits I like to imagine are in my own repertoire, at least to a modest extent.

PT: Favorite Bible verse and why.

KW: This is a hard one. There are so many. There is one that I made into a mouse pad that stays by my computer. Thessalonians 2:4. This verse speaks to my writing mission. God has entrusted me with a message, one conveyed through story. It is His message, not my own, and I must constantly test my heart to ensure that the glory goes to Him instead of trying to keep it for myself. And as much as we write to entertain our readers and please our publishers, ultimately, we write not to please people, but to please God.



PT: Will there be a third book in the Patchwork Family Series? Perhaps Rosalind is going places? Hmmm?

KW: You know I can't just leave poor Rosalind hanging without giving her a happy ending.J  She will be featured in the novella, More Than a Pretty Face in the upcoming Harvey House Brides collection entitled Serving Up Love. The collection, featuring additional stories from Tracie Peterson, Regina Jennings, and Jen Turano, releases this November.

PT: Give five things about Karen Witemeyer that has nothing to do with writing. (This is my favorite equestrian, neigh!)

KW:
1. I was a band nerd through junior high, high school, and my freshman year of college until I met my future husband and switched to choir. Music is in my blood!
2. I love hiking to waterfalls.
3. My in-laws live right next door, and I LOVE it. J
4. I adore playing board games, especially when I win (my youngest had to get his competitive streak from somewhere).
5. I love cracking "punny" jokes with my oldest son. If my husband and youngest son roll their eyes, we know we've accomplished our mission!

Ah, which toadily explains the ribbiting puns.  Thank you, Karen for joining us! If you want to learn more about Karen Witemeyer and her books, click the links firmly, after all~loose links sink ships~last one I promise!  J


Karen is generously giving away one copy of More Than Words Can Say (within the U.S.) to one person who leaves a comment and their email address. Who can't be excited about that??!! 




Now Available: More Than Words Can Say

She needs a man's name to save her bakery, but her recipe for success isn't supposed to include falling in love.

Author Interview and Giveaway with Bethany Turner!

Hi guys! V. Joy Palmer here! Since we are all friends here, you guys can call me Joy. ;-) And since we are all friends, one of my favorite things to do is talk with my friends at a charming coffee house. Bonus points if that coffee house has lots of books under its roof. Books and yummy drinks are the perfect combination, after all. So please consider this our virtual coffee house! I'll wait a second for you to get your warm drink and a fuzzy blanket before we chat with today's guest. :-)

We are going to pry into the private life chat with Bethany Turner, author of The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck and Wooing Cadie McCaffrey! I've had the pleasure of helping to promote both of Bethany's wonderful books, and you can read my reviews here and here!

Get ready for some epicness!



Bethany Turner is the award-winning author of The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck, which was a Christy Award finalist. When she's not writing (and even when she is), she serves as the director of administration for Rock Springs Church in Southwest Colorado. She lives with her husband and their two sons in Colorado, where she writes for a new generation of readers who crave fiction that tackles the thorny issues of life with humor and insight.

Interview ~

First things first, would you order coffee, tea, or hot chocolate in our virtual coffee house? Something else altogether? This is possibly the most important question... No pressure or anything, LOL! ;-) 


Coffee in the morning, iced tea in the afternoon. And chocolate all day long…but only in solid form!



You are speaking my language! LOL! On to our second most important question: if you could order anything in the world to eat, what would it be?


Oh my goodness, that’s a fabulous question. I had some fresh scallops in Cape Cod about five years ago and I’ve been thinking about them ever since, so I suppose that would be it! Although…one of my bucket list items is to have a chance to try the signature dish of a world-renowned chef, actually prepared by that chef. So if Gordon Ramsay is willing to cook me some beef Wellington, I guess I’ll take that over the scallops.

Surely Gordon Ramsay can make you some beef Wellington with a side of scallops! YUM! Where is your favorite place to write, and why is that your favorite place?

I have a small office space in my bedroom, and in addition to my desk and such, I have a recliner crammed in there. The recliner is my favorite. In the recliner, it doesn’t feel like work.

Recliners for the win! Confession time! Do you have an odd habit that is only explained by your bookish, writer tendencies? Safe space. ;-)

 I’m not sure that it’s a habit so much as a neurosis! I tend to write a lot of dialogue in my novels—primarily because I see them as movies in my mind—and when I’m deep into writing a story, dialogue tags tend to make their way into my mind during real life conversations.

“What are we having for dinner?” her teenaged son asked, his stomach growling.

“I thought we might order a pizza,” his mother replied, her guilt at having lost track of time manifesting itself as bribery.

That sort of thing. Thankfully it usually goes away when I’m not facing a deadline!


That. Is. Hilarious! LOVE IT! What inspired you to write Wooing Cadie McCaffrey?

 I was on a plane and there was this family in front of me—the husband with one of their children, right in front of me, and the wife with the other child, in the row in front of them. Every once in a while the parents would start to talk to each other, and then their attention was always pulled away by one of the kids. None of it was bad. It was just life. But a couple times I saw this look pass between the husband and wife. A look that somehow captured lifelong love and commitment, and an affection for the life they had built together, but it also somehow said, “We’ll find time for us again someday.” It was so real, and I knew I wanted to write the story of a couple for whom love is never the problem. The problem is life, and the struggle to carve out time for each other. It morphed and grew a lot from there, but that was the beginning.

That is such an awesome story nugget! My romantic heart is all mushy! *happy sigh* What led you to write in this genre?

The truth is I wrote the story that was on my heart with absolutely no consideration of what genre it fell into. That was The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck. I honestly knew very little about the Christian book market, and had no idea where that book would end up landing. But once I got in, I saw the need for more books like what I most loved to write anyway—books that perhaps can get away with going where some other books couldn’t or shouldn’t, because the journey is accompanied by laughter.

That is so awesome! I absolutely love that we are seeing more and more of these wonderful stories (like yours!!) appearing in the Christian Fiction market! What message do you hope to convey to your readers in Wooing Cadie McCaffrey?

That love is more than a feeling. Love is an action. Love takes effort. And I’m not just talking about the love between Cadie and Will—although…definitely. With Cadie and Will, their love for the other person was never in question, but they got complacent. And the same goes with each of their relationships with God. Their faith was secure, but they became as complacent in their faith, and in their relationships with God, as they became in their relationship with each other. Love is worth fighting for, and sometimes it’s not about fighting another person, or any outside source, really. Sometime the fight really happens within.

YES and AMEN to everything you said! Can you tell us a little about your next project?

 A very little bit! I just turned in the first draft of a story that will be published by Revell in 2020, and my manuscripts tend to get turned on their heads during edits. But it’s the story of two polar-opposite celebrity chefs who share a very public, very career-altering heated exchange, and then are forced to play nice with each other down the road. I look forward to sharing more soon!

Man, I need a time machine because I am SO EXCITED FOR THIS STORY!!!! Ahem. Sorry...I'm just...um, very excited... ;-) Do you have a favorite Bible verse or story that inspires you on a soul level?

Ephesians 3:20. “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.” Time after time I have thought I knew what needed to happen. I thought I had the plan all sorted out. But then God did what He knew was best, and He has a way of blowing all of my feeble dreams out of the water.

Love this truth! <3 What are you currently reading? Inquiring minds -- mine -- want to know! LOL! ;-)

I have a couple reads going. I’m just starting to dive in to Lincee Ray’s new release, It’s a Love Story. That girl is hilarious, and speaks such truth! And then I’m listening to the audiobook of Fosse, which is an in-depth biography of the dancer/choreographer/director Bob Fosse.

Those sound like awesome reads! *adds more books to the TBR that would take Methuselah a couple lifetimes to read* 

Thank you so much for hanging out with us and for answering all of my prying questions, Bethany!

Giveaway ~

Bethany has generously offered one paperback copy of Wooing Cadie McCaffrey to one worldwide winner!



"Romantics everywhere will sigh happily at the perfect ending."--Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author

After four years with her boyfriend, Cadie McCaffrey is thinking of ending things. Convinced Will doesn't love her in the "forever" way she loves him, Cadie believes it's time for her to let him go before life passes her by. When a misunderstanding leads to a mistake, leaving her hurt, disappointed, and full of regret, she finally sends him packing.

But for Will, the end of their relationship is only the beginning of his quest to figure out how to be the man Cadie wanted him to be. With the dubious guidance of his former pro-athlete work friends and tactics drawn from Cadie's favorite romantic comedies, Will attempts to win her back. It's a foolproof plan. What could possibly go wrong?
