Her agenda is ambitious, and it could spell disaster

Friday, June 21st, 2019
E. C. Jackson began her writing career with the full-length play Pajama Party. For three and a half years she published the Confidence in Life newsletter for Alpha Production Ministries, in addition to writing tracts and devotionals. 
 
Teaching a women’s Bible study at her church for eleven years naturally led to her current endeavor of writing inspirational romance novels and teen and young adult fiction. Her mission: spiritual maturity in the body of Christ through fiction.

Most sleepovers are simple. Food, fun, and
pillow fights. But sixteen-year-old Karen Duncan has bigger plans for her
slumber party. Family troubles have changed her over the past year, and she’s
no longer the petty, selfish girl she used to be. Now she’s ready to shake
things up with her friends. The guest list comes as a surprise to some and a
slap in the face to others. This popular girl has invited some not-so-popular
guests. Even more shocking, she’s left out some of the girls she’s hung out
with since middle school.
Diane and Evette are outsiders, nervous about being stuck in a house with the
same girls who tease them at school. Kathy, Lisa, and Joann come to the party
with the confidence of the in-crowd, but they’re masking inner-turmoil that is
bound to surface. Sandy and Angela are usually the voices of reason…usually.
And then there’s Linda, the friend that got away. She may not ever forgive the
girls who abandoned her years ago. Karen hopes to change her mind.

Her agenda is ambitious, and it could spell disaster. But Karen is convinced
God will use this party to spark a new beginning for everyone involved. This
companion book to A Living Hope gives us the inspired story Sadie Cummings
wrote for the girls of Shiatown.

Snippet:
“Are
all of the girls you invited coming over? What’s the itinerary for tonight?”
Karen
beamed. “Nothing’s written in concrete, but, I bought a noisy interaction game
for us to play. We’ll use the karaoke machine too. This will be a spontaneous
night for us. My thoughts are to just let things happen.”
“Then
our thoughts are far apart. Your friends are a tad dramatic. Reign them in so I
won’t have to.”
“Mom,
you just destroyed my happy list. I want spontaneity to rule tonight.”
“If
it does I’m sending everyone home early.

Now, all that mattered was the limitations that the sky had to offer

Life
in the Atmosphere
by
Anthony Wilson
Genre:
YA, Coming of Age
 
Jahlil
Adams is just a regular teenager. In fact, you could say that he is
“super regular” with his glasses, comic books, and cheap fashion
sense. He doesn’t want popularity. He doesn’t want a pretty
girlfriend. He wants to just be who he is. Well that and not to be
bullied by Max Maniac. 

 

 

Yet,
everything changes once Mr. Malachi gave Jahlil a necklace that he
didn’t even want.

 

After
that, everything was not the same. In fact, Jahlil began to realize
that there was much more to who he was. There was much more to who
Mr. Malachi was. There was much more to his existence. The lid of
limitations was lifted from Jahlil’s life.

 

Now,
all that mattered was the limitations that the sky had to offer.

How special. What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Balancing it with being a full-time mom. It can be frustrating when all you want to do is write but can’t get a moment of quiet.

Been there done that. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My husband. He works full time and comes home to be a full time dad so I can write, and he takes over parenting on the weekends for the same reason. He’s pretty amazing.

That is awesome. Who or What inspired you to write this book?

It was NaNoWriMo (more…)

Today we have Dorine White the author of The Emerald Ring visiting our blog.

Hello Dorine. What makes you passionate about writing?

Beautifully spoken. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

The Emerald Ring took me about 3 months for the first draft, but it took (more…)
