Instead of the usual author interview, Margaret gave me the option of discussing some of my own “Creative Madness” and sharing one of my favorite hobbies with you. I couldn’t resist. Especially when I saw that Margaret herself shares my passion not only for reading Christian historical fiction but for cross-stitch.
Our very own Karen Witemeyer is a finalist in the 2010 Best Western Romance contest hosted by the Love Western Romances blog site. This site focuses mostly on general market titles, but they are open to inspirational as well, and Karen’s debut novel, A Tailor-Made Bride, was selected as one of the finalists. The winner is decided by popular vote, so please take a minute and visit the website to vote. http://www.lovewesternromances.com/2010BestWesternRomance.html Everyone who votes will have a chance to win a goodie basket full of books plus a $25 gift card from Barnes & Noble. Three other Christian authors were also named finalists, so if you haven’t read Karen’s book, stop by anyway and vote for Vickie McDonough, Tamera Alexander, or Margaret Brownley. How fabulous would it be for a Christian novel to win this award?
