Giveaway! Joy Restored by Jude Urbanski


Welcome to Writing for Christ Jude Urbanski, it is great to have you here! Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know?

Other people like to buy tee shirts as soverniers from places visited, but I like to bring back interesting rocks I find. I then write the place and date on these rocks. Some I keep on my desk. Others I place in clay pots on my patio. They are ever reminders of where I’ve been.

Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?
 I am very eclectic here. In fiction, I like historical, all the way from medieval times to the Westward Movement in the United States. I enjoy women’s fiction featuring love stories. I’m quite fond of nonfiction in the inspirational genre. I write in similar fashion it seems, inspirational nonfiction and women’s fiction with inspirational love stories. Go figure!

Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?
 I’m come to view writing as an art much like painting, sculpturing, or composing music. There is no exact right or wrong way to do it. Do it your way. It is your art. Some will like it, some will not.

5 things you love?
God. My family. My country. Nature. People.

What do you enjoy most about being a published author?
Well, I consider myself still a beginner, but I like seeing results for my hard efforts. It feels good. My electronic novel, Joy Restored, by Desert Breeze Publishing is a dream come true. I want to be a wordsmith woman-‘writing, growing and living for God.’

  5. I love the idea of the rocks as souvenirs. Very creative and they would make great little paperweights. :)

  20. Enjoyed the interview - what is it about collecting rocks? We used to go hiking when the kids were little, and we'd all come back with rocks in our backpacks. They're great reminders of places and good times. Thanks for sharing, Jude. Beautiful cover, btw.
