Giveaway! Aloha Rose by Lisa Carter!

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

I once worked with the Underground Church in what used to be the Soviet Union. Yes, I just dated myself.

Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?

My favorite genre to read is what I write—romantic suspense.

Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?

The writing journey is about relationships. Pursue a relationship with God. Pursue a relationship with other writers. Pursue relationships more than contracts.

5 things you love?
  1. God
  2. My family
  3. A tea garden lush with roses in Somerset, England
  4. The saffron yellow, russet red and pumpkin orange leaves of autumn
  5. Reuniting with long-lost friends

What novel have you recently read that has stood out to you that both teens and adults will find enjoyment in?

I just finished Lisa Wingate’s The Prayer Box. It has a strong theme of second chances as well as a secondary subplot involving the protagonist’s teenage daughter.

Places for readers to learn more about you?

  15. Hey Case :)
    How you doin', girlfriend? I am absolutely loving that picture of you at the top of the blog. You look stunning! You looked like you had an awesome trip, I'm glad you got home safely too though :)

    Anywho, I'm trying to slowly slip back into blogging lol proud of myself to have been pretty good about posting so far. I pop in here and there on my fave blogs too though and realized I hadn't been back onto yours still! Shame, shame on me. I picked a good day, this book sounds good! The cover has my favorite color so of course it catches my eye. I also found that Underground Church fact wicked interesting. I bet you have lots of stories, Lisa!
