The Rising by Lynn Chandler Willis

How did you come up with your premise? Is there a story behind your book? How did the story evolve? This is going to sound so strange, but the idea for the story hit me while grocery shopping. Right there in the frozen foods section, I had the ol' “what if” scenario!
For those who are not familiar with this story, would you please give us the blurb? Sure. A dead child that isn't dead. A cop out of control. When their worlds collide, God intervenes.
Are there any fun titbits about this story you can share with us? Jesse was supposed to be a minor character. Like some characters will do, he tried to take over. I had to wrestle him down sometimes and remind him it was Ellie's story, not his.
How did you decide on the setting? I'm totally in love with the North Carolina mountains and foothills and the plot needed snow. I'm a firm believer in  allowing the setting and weather associated with that setting to become secondary characters in themselves.
When will it be release…

Piece of Heaven by Donna B. Snow

Blurb
Trina Wembly dreamt of owning a Christian coffee house for years –a Godly place where people could enjoy a good meal, and entertainment that wasn’t offensive. A Piece of Heaven is that dream.
Jared Larou, the construction foreman who helps design and build the coffee house, is a wounded soul with a soft heart.
Once the coffee house opens, Trina and her partner, Laura, work day and night. From coffee in the morning, to gourmet dinners in the evenings, it’s a heavy load. Plus Trina performs most nights as the entertainer at the coffee house.
Trina longs to be more than just friends with Jared, she just hopes that’s what God wants for her too.

Review

I had the privilege of seeing a very early copy of this story a long time ago. And it only improved over time. Trina and Jared are both characters that worm their way effortlessly into your heart and have you alternately rooting for them and yelling at them. Which is always a sign of a good book. Ms. Snow had me laughing out …
