Giveaway! In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin!

Welcome to Writing for Christ Sarah Sundin, it is great to have you here! So you’re a writer? What made you decide to start creating characters and story world?

Characters who wouldn’t leave me alone. I was (still am) a pharmacist. I had no plans to be a writer. Then a story idea—the characters, really—struck me. I had to tell their story.

What is the one title that has significantly impacted your life?

I read Rick Warren’s A Purpose-Driven Life at the same time God was calling me into serious writing, and it really helped me to see God’s purpose in my life and to set my priorities to reflect those purposes.

If you could get a do-over when it came to learning this whole thing called writing, what would you go back and tell yourself?

To relax and enjoy the pre-published phase. If it’s God’s will, it’ll happen in God’s timing. I knew this, but to really relax in it would have been wonderful.

5 preference questions:

Homemade or take-out? Homemade. Unless I’m on deadline J
Email or snailmail? Email. But please don’t text me.
Online shopping or Black Friday deals? Neither. Brick & mortar stores, but NOT during big sales.
Books or movies? Books.
Note-taker or memorization? Note-taker, list-maker, color-coordinated-chart lover.

Yes, I’m asking you to play favorites…which of your books is your favorite, published or unpublished? And if this is your debut novel, has your favorite been published yet?

I have three kids. I love them all equally, they have their own strengths and weaknesses, and they drive me crazy in their own unique ways. It’s the same with my books. Right now, my new release, In Perfect Time, is probably my favorite. I’m feeling nostalgic for my Nightingale series after working on my new series for the past year.
