The Sound of Emeralds Birthday Blog Tour

Book Birthday Tour for The Sound of Emeralds by Rachelle Rae Cobb

I’ve got a treat for you today! I’m excited to be one of the stops on The Sound of Emeralds birthday blog tour! I’m posting today about Rachelle Rea Cobb’s third installment in the Steadfast Love series, an inspirational historical romance set during the 16th century!

Birthday Blog Tour, The Sound of Emeralds by Rachelle Rae Cobb

Rachelle is also the author of The Sound of Diamonds and The Sound of Silver, the first two books in the series. She has also written Write Well, a guide for writers! Last summer, she married a man with the same first name as the hero of the Steadfast Love series! I’m joining in this blog tour to tell you a little more about Emeralds and spread the news about the rocking giveaway Rachelle is hosting—make sure you enter using the Rafflecopter form to win signed copies of all three books!

An Interview with Rachelle

When and where did you first get the idea for the Steadfast Love Series?
A song I was listening to on the radio inspired the title of the first book. So I wrote Diamonds, but when I finished it, I realized to my great frustration that the characters weren’t done with their story, even though I had been quite adamant that I would write a stand-alone novel. But the story wasn’t finished, so I kept writing.

Readers often pick out favorite quotes from a novel. Do you have a favorite of your own from The Sound of Silver?
Yes! In fact, my friend Mindy, a calligrapher, even created a beautiful piece of art from one of my favorite quotes: “Within the pages of books one’s heart can be revealed.”

Can you tell us what first drew you to writing Inspirational Historical Romance?
My first exposure to the genre came when I read Heartsong Presents novels when I was twelve. Those small books introduced me to how much I believe in the power of story, especially love stories set in times gone by.

I saw on your website that you also write reviews, articles and offer editing services. What’s one of your favorite things beyond writing novels that you enjoy?
Editing is such fun! I daresay I enjoy editing a page full of my own (or others’!) words just as much as I enjoy splashing words onto a blank page. I recently released my first nonfiction book, Write Well, which is a short ebook designed as a guide writers!

About The Sound of Emeralds

The Sound of Emeralds by Rachelle Rae CobbWhat once was blazing hatred has turned to lasting love, but could the union of a wild heart with that of a lady ever result in more than heartache?

With the help of an old friend with uncertain loyalties, Dirk inches ever closer to clearing his name. Gwyneth throws her faith into good tidings and the promise of a future as a family. But an old evil comes to call, just as tragedy rips apart a fledgling truce. Enemies from the past and grief for the future threaten to tear asunder what God had brought together…

As the date of Dirk’s trial approaches, his fate and his family hang in the balance. Will he be proven innocent of Gwyneth’s parents’ murders—or separated from her forever? How much pain does it take to erode a love steadfast?

Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger, Coming May 2017

READ A SAMPLE CHAPTER OF SOMEPLACE FAMILIAR HERE!

Author Interview: Kara Swanson

Author Interview: Kara Swanson  |  TeresaTysinger.com

I am so excited to introduce you to a sweet author that I just met myself recently on Facebook. Kara Swanson writes Young Adult fiction, and if her writing is any bit as awesome as she is, we’re all in for a treat. Enjoy this interview with Kara, and be sure to leave her some love in the comments.

Welcome, Kara! Can you please tell us a little about yourself?
I’m 20 years old and was first published at 17, so this writing journey began at a young age for me. It’s always amazing for me to look back and see how much I’ve grown since then! But the process of putting my soul-stories to paper will always thrill me, no matter how many times I do it.

I spent sixteen years overseas in Papua New Guinea, as my parents were missionaries. I lived in the middle of the jungle, only accessible by airplane, without internet connection or cable TV. Needless to say, I read. A lot. And it has greatly shaped my own writing—I devoured novels by authors like C. S. Lewis, Wayne Thomas Batson and L. M. Montgomery. Writing my own stories seemed like the natural thing to do next, after spending hours in their worlds.

I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease about two years ago. We realize now that I’ve had it for about six years. Struggling with heavy fatigue, aches, loss of mental clarity and many other symptoms has taken college out of the running for the time being, and really stripped me of the things I’ve always held tight. Things that, looking back, had taken the place of dependence on my Savior. So, in some ways, while having Lyme has made it difficult for me to function, spiritually it’s a major blessing. When I’m weakest, He is strongest, after all. Not to mention that having a disease has given me a lot more time to write because I simply have nothing else I can do. It’s been such an honor to be able to use the stories of how He has carried me through the tempests to encourage others. Stories of how His strength is truly displayed in our weakest, most broken moments.

Wow. That is a beautiful testimony. I sure wish you healing and success on your journey. What is your favorite part of the writing process?
The writing! J I love getting to let my words carry me away to far off places. I love the creative process. Because I write fantasy, sci fi and everything in between, I get to do a lot of creating when I write. Worlds. Customs. Even foods. 🙂 I also adore that process of being able to develop a complex and unexpected character. Watching them shape and grow the more I write. That moment when you hit your stride and the words don’t feel forced or uncertain. Where they just flow. Those are the moments I live for as a writer.

What is your least favorite part?
Rewriting. I find when I have to fill plot holes and rewrite huge chunks that its mentally and physically exhausting . You’re not creating so much as doing patchwork. That’s probably my least favorite part.

I think a lot of us authors can relate to that! Can you tell us about your latest/upcoming book?|
My upcoming release is called The Girl Who Could See. Its about… A girl who is crazy. Her imaginary friend who claims he’s not imaginary. And the monster threatening both their worlds. In order to survive, Fern will have to confront her own insanity—and believe in the impossible 🙂

From where did the inspiration for this book come?
The idea for this one was very on the nose J I literally had two sentences that kept playing through my head, forcing me to tell the story that was woven between them:

They say every child had an imaginary friend.
Mine never left.

What was the last/current book you’ve read?
I just finished The Awakening, book two in Katie Ganshert’s The Gifting series. It was such a good read! ❤

Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
Oh, so many! I love, love, love Lewis. For so many reasons. His creativity. The way he told stories. The way he wove spiritual themes throughout. The way he combined various influences.

I also have the great pleasure of knowing quite a few amazing writers. One of them, Joanne Bischof (author of historical fiction. If you haven’t read The Lady and the Lionheart yet—go read it. SO. GOOD. You have no idea) is a very close friend and mentor of mine. I don’t write the same genre she does, but in some ways I think that’s why she sharpens my writing so much. She has a unique perspective on it. Plus she’s just brilliant 🙂

Yes! Joanne is wonderful! What’s one piece of advice you’d like to give other writers?
Write…write…write. The more you write, the better you will get. Write foremost for yourself because you love it, then as your craft grows, start writing so others will enjoy it too. So that the story you have to tell can impact others.  And—its okay to fall in love with your characters. Get to know them so well that you are dying to write their story every day. 🙂

And just for fun… What’s your favorite food/movie/vacation spot/song?
Eeesh, not sure, but I’m always a sucker for a good Marvel movie. Spider Man: Homecoming looks amazing 🙂

The Girl Who Could See: A Novella

Author Interview: Kara Swanson, author of The Girl Who Could SeeAll her life Fern has been told she is blind to reality—but, what if she is the only one who can truly see?

Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that’s what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now nineteen, and one step away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles. Desperate to appear normal, she represses the young man flickering at the edge of her awareness—a blond warrior only she can see.

Tristan was Fern’s childhood imaginary hero, saving her from monsters under her bed and outside her walls. As she grew up and his secret world continued to bleed into hers, however, it only caused catastrophe. But, when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced to consider the possibility that this young man is not a hallucination after all—and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.

Pre-Order The Girl Who Could See here.

About Kara Swanson

Kara-Swanson-236x300As the daughter of missionaries, Kara Swanson spent sixteen years of her young life in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. Able to relate with characters dropped suddenly into a unique new world, she quickly fell in love with the speculative genre and was soon penning stories herself.

At seventeen, she independently published a fantasy novel, Pearl of Merlydia, and has since gone on to have several articles and short stories published. Kara’s upcoming release, a novella titled The Girl Who Could See, releases in June. Kara received the Mount Hermon Most Promising Teen Writer Award in 2015. When she’s not creating new stories and placing characters in peril, she’s probably binge-watching Marvel movies, playing with her huskies, reading till two in the morning or experimenting with a dairy-free mocha Frappuccino (skills, I’m telling you).

New Release From Pepper Basham

You all know that I have a soft, squishy spot for Appalachian life and stories. It will come as no surprise to you, then, that I’m secretly in love with Pepper Basham‘s books! One of my favorite recent reads is Pepper’s A Twist of Faith. Today Pepper is celebrating the release of her newest book Just the Way You Are, a “culture clash between Britain and Appalachia.”

About Just the Way You Are

Just the Way You Are by Pepper BashamSingle mom, Eisley Barrett, prefers to keep romance housed within a centuries-old mystery, but when she travels to England to unearth the secret, an actor with a sordid past offers her heart a very different type of discovery.

Wes Harrison has a past he’s ashamed to confess. Suspicious and cynical, he’s managed to avoid romantic entanglements since a tragedy upended his career and life, that is until American Eisley Barrett comes along. Her authenticity and kindness upend his bitter assumptions and send his heart into unscripted territory.

When his past threatens to ruin a second chance at love, can some Appalachian matchmaking and letters from the grave salvage their unexpected romance?

Humor, love, mystery, cute kids, crazy families, and culture clashes make this Britallachian Romance a unique and delightful romantic comedy sprinkled with adventure.

My copy of JTWYA is waiting in my Kindle for me to get my eyes on as soon as my crazy pre-release schedule allows me. In the meantime, here’s what people are saying about this much anticipated release into the Christian fiction world.*

“With equal parts side-splitting wit and humor, sparkling romance and two vivid cultures colliding all in the name of Love, Ms. Basham’s latest literary offering will no doubt become a classic in the genre and in new and old readers’ hearts. Just the Way You Are will leave you swooning, happy-sighing and wiping tears away in turn. A truly unforgettable novel!”
– Meghan Gorecki


“Wes and Eisley [main characters] are what propel this story from a light and humorous start to an ending with surprising transformation, romance, and depth. Add in the fairy tale-like England trip, family mystery, and pop culture references and you have the perfect witty romance.”
– CameraCourt


“On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts, Just The Way You Are by Pepper D. Basham is Lindt Lindor Truffles (my fave is dark chocolate). Chocolate crunch on the outside and creamy goodness in the center, but wait, it’s in book form!”
– Barbara B.

Author Interview & Giveaway: Laurie Tomlinson

Author Interview + Book Giveaway with Laurie Tomlinson, author of "With No Reservations"

Author Interview + Book Giveaway with Laurie Tomlinson, author of “With No Reservations”

Today is a special day, friends. Not only do I get to introduce you to an author, but one who happens to also be my friend AND my editor for Someplace Familiar! Indeed, Laurie Tomlinson wears many hats. Today, Laurie is kind enough to tell us about herself and her upcoming release through a good, old-fashioned Q&A. Be sure to read to the end for a chance to win a copy of Laurie’s book, With No Reservations.

Welcome, Laurie! Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Yes! I’m wife to a soccer playing engineer, mama to two littles, and small business owner living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. By night, I write stories of grace in the beautiful mess to help readers find beauty and hope in complicated, unexpected places.

We all need stories like that. What is your favorite part of the writing process?
Definitely when I hit the middle section of the story and tap into that deep well of inspiration.

What is your least favorite part?
The other 90% of the time when chocolate is the only thing keeping me from banging my head against the keyboard. 🙂

Ha! I think all of us authors can relate to that! Can you tell us about your latest/upcoming book?
My debut novel, With No Reservations, releases NEXT MONTH and tells what happens when a food blogger leaves her carefully controlled world to help a high profile millionaire-turned-chef open his first restaurant. Their story explores healing and hope when you’ve been stuck for a long time.

You guys, I’ve had an early glimpse at this book and you are going to love it! Laurie, from where did you get the inspiration for With No Reservations?
Well, if I’m honest, it started with food. Is that weird? I knew I wanted to have a food blogger heroine. Then some revelations the Lord gave me about healing while dealing with a chronic illness helped the story develop from there.

Not weird at all! I’m curious, what was the last book you’ve read?
Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger and Wild & Free by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan. I recommend both!

(Did I mention Laurie is my editor? Ha!) Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
Katie Ganshert, Carla Laureano, and Kara Isaac. Authenticity is one of my highest values, and their stories, while very different styles, capture that so beautifully.

What’s one piece of advice you’d like to give other writers?
To own their work, watch out for filter words, and remember that a little here and there adds up to a lot!

And just for fun…What’s your favorite movie?
Recent: Hidden Figures
Classic: I will never quit Love & Basketball and 10 Things I Hate About You. Never.

There can be more than comfort in food… 

What could well-known and wealthy Graham Cooper Jr. have in common with a blogger like Sloane Bradley, a woman with secrets she’s kept firmly out of the public eye? That is, besides a love of food. Sloane still can’t believe Cooper’s the chef at the restaurant she’s been assigned to promote. But she’s boiling to prove to him that her “little blog” can put his place on the map. She can also fall head over heels for the guy, who has secrets of his own, it turns out…except for one thing. She can’t get past the post-traumatic stress disorder that keeps her walled up in her home studio.

You Won’t Remember the Pain: Birthing a Book

BirthingABook

I’ve heard authors compare publishing a book to childbirth. Metaphorically, of course. But on that vein of thought, I think I’m in the throws of birthing pains, friends. Someplace Familiar is my “first born” book. She’s gestated for three years, not counting the decade or so I dreamed of her…the possibility of her.

Like all new mothers, one of my biggest struggles as I wait for the book to come to life is self-doubt. Before I had my daughter eight years ago I worried if I had the capacity to properly care for her – her body, her spirit, her happiness. I could barely handle those things for myself. Oh, self-doubt is a quiet, sly foe.

I came across this quote about birthing from Barbara Katz Rothman that made me stop and think…

Birth is not only about making babies.
Birth is about making mothers –
strong, competent, capable mothers
who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

What if we rewrote this for the circumstance of an author publishing a book?

Publishing is not only about making books.
Publishing is about making authors –
strong, competent, capable authors
who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

No child will grow up perfect and without flaws – it’s not in human nature. Likewise, no book will it make it to the digital or brick-and-mortar shelves without mistakes. There will be typos and sentences that could’ve been written better. We authors must remember that if we focus too much on unattainable perfection of our books we risk missing the lessons we learn along the way about our own abilities and strength.

These talents are God given. Placed upon your for such a time as this, in your lifetime and within your influences. You wrote a book! I mean, that’s huge. What’s more…we authors have worked hard on the books to get them to the point of publishing. No small feat.

My daily prayer as I grit my teeth through these labor pains of publishing is that God will help me focus on the journey, and find joy there where exhaustion and hard work threaten to dissuade me from noticing victory.

Once the book is “born,” my newest baby, I’ll forget the pain it took to get her here. Like my own cesarean scar from eight years ago, the memory of trauma will fade and will be replaced with joy and anticipation of what God will do with her life…how she’ll impact others…how she’ll leave the world different, better, than it was before she came.

That’s my prayer. I’ll forget today’s pain.

Cover Reveal: Someplace Familiar

It’s an exciting day for me. Much like posting the first photo of a newborn into the family, it’s my true honor to finally SHOW you my debut novel, Someplace Familiar.

Someplace Familiar by Teresa Tysinger

Artist Livy Johnson needs a fresh start. That’s what a broken heart and forgotten dreams can do to a person. On little more than a whim, she reclaims her grandmother’s old home in quaint Laurel Cove, North Carolina and vows to restore its original charm. When she literally collides with childhood friend, Jack Bowdon, Livy wonders if she’s back for an entirely different reason.

Jack can’t believe his childhood crush is back. As the owner of Bowdon’s Supplies, and once again the town’s most eligible bachelor, he offers to help Livy with repairs. Together they embark on the project—and an undeniable whirlwind romance.

But it’s not all smooth sailing. Together they must find a way to survive the destructive pain of their pasts and ultimately discover God’s grace waiting to renovate their hearts.
