Giveaway! Kept by Sally Bradley!

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

I’ve always been this way, so I’d say God did it. I really do think He wanted me to write Christian fiction, and I’m thrilled to do it.

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

 Karen Ball’s The Breaking Point. I think it’s an important book because it was the first time someone ever said to me that marriage wasn’t my “right” to a happily ever after but God’s method for making me more like Him. Talk about life changing! Our whole country needs to hear that.


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?

I’ve had seasons where I didn’t write much, but that was because I was pregnant and had a toddler (hello, afternoon nap every single day!) or was working or... I just didn’t have the time then to write like I wanted to. So I’m always tempted to point to those times, but I do think they were necessary periods that made me a better person and writer.


5 preference questions:

Homemade or take-out? Take out—no clean up and I can write more!
Email or snailmail? Email. I stink at anything that require a stamp.
Online shopping or Black Friday deals?—Online shopping. Even then I don’t do that. My husband does most of the gift shopping for the kids (he’s so good!), and he’s usually done by the first week of December. Then all the Amazon boxes start to arrive. It’s fun!
Books or movies? Books. Hands down.
Note-taker or memorization? I used to remember everything. Now... I take notes and make lists and forget to take them with me. It’s a gift. I’m just glad we live 3.3 minutes from the grocery store.
               

Yes, I’m asking you to play favorites…which of your books is your favorite, published or unpublished?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?

Kept is my favorite book so far! I adore my characters and can’t imagine the next book will be as entertaining. Of course I said that after I finished my previous book too. So that’s encouraging.


Places for readers to learn more about you?

 I’m mostly on Facebook at Sally Bradley, Writer and my website, sallybradley.com. For those interested in my book Kept, there’s a Pinterest page. Twitter and I kinda nod at each other in passing. If you’re okay waiting a few days for me to get back to you J, let’s connect there. I’m @SallyBWrites.

Thank you for being with us today!


Thanks so much for having me, Casey.

  16. First thing, are you kin to Patricia Bradley? Casey, sounds like you are really changing things up. I wish you success. I love the cover picture on Kept. Love it. If changing thinks will give you more family time, that is good. I am sure addicted to my computer, since I have found the authors. But can find I don't have time for my reading. I would love to win this book. Maxie
