Another Q&A post

Christian fiction, the Remnant Comments: 12

Deep Shadows smBefore we get to your questions, I wanted to let you know that my new release, Deep Shadows, is now available where ever books are sold. I’m so excited! Reviews have been great, and I’m thrilled that readers are connecting with this story. If you haven’t picked up your copy yet, the price is still below $10 for most vendors, in both ebook and print. Now to your questions–

Betty asked, “What inspired you to write Deep Shadows? Will there be a sequel? Do you outline?” I actually read a news story where NASA had presented a study on solar flares to Congress, and that captured my imagination. There will be 2 more books in the series, and there will be a free prequel (ebook only) releasing on October 1. I do not outline, though sometimes I think life would be easier if I did.

Gail and Jackie asked, “Do you ever sell any of your handmade quilted items?” No. I’m really a beginner. Some of the things I’ve done look nice in a picture, but when you look at the stitching–it’s something of a mess! I’m enjoying learning though, and I love being able to give some things away.

Juanita asked, “Have you always wanted to write books?” No. I’ve always loved to read, but I didn’t want to write until after I finished my master’s degree in English. I had to write a lot for that program, and I decided then that it was something I loved to do.

IMG_4758-2Roberta asked, “Was it a coaster you quilted?” Actually it was a mini-quilt, and I had a lot of fun making it! I’ve included a pic so you can see the colors, though this was before I finished it.

Alice asked, “Do you have children? Also, how about writing a book about camping out adult-style?” We do have children–my husband had 3 when I met him and I had 1. It’s funny that you bring up a camping mystery. I’ve actually sent in a proposal for that very thing. If you camp awhile, you find there are some strange people out there! I think it would be a real hoot, but the publisher hasn’t decided to go with that series–yet.

    I have so many favorite things of summer. Sitting on the back deck and reading, visiting with family and friends, eating popsicles and letting the melted ice fall wherever it wants to fall, lemonade, cookouts, going to the pool and so much more. 🙂 I love summer.

  2. Mary Ellen Ashenfelder

    My favorite thing to do in the summer is spend time with my family especially my grandson Jake. We like to take trips to amusement parks, Amish country and arcades. We were just in Niagara Falls and plan on a river boat ride next week.

  3. Gail Estes Hollingsworth

    I enjoy camping just like you Vannetta! We’re packing in as many trips this summer as we can before we’re keeping the grandson again this fall.
    I’d love for you to write a book with camping in it. I know just what you mean about strange people we meet while camping……

    Sitting on the deck in my swing reading and relaxing and working in my yard are my favorite things. Also, enjoy visiting the Amish Farmer’s Markets in Lancaster Co., PA.

    Such an interesting storyline!! I enjoyed the Q&A ‘s, Vannetta – thanks for the giveaway opportunities!!

    My fave things to do during summer are spending more time with my family and friends: day trips, cook-outs/picnics, eating at restaurants over-looking the river and the city lights at night, etc., summer fruits, vegetables, and flowers.

    I enjoy so many things in the summer time. Some of the top ones are walking at daybreak and hearing nature, working in my yard and flower beds, sitting outside to read, fresh produce from the garden. Summer is fun just being able to be outside and more sunlight.

  8. Janet Estridge

    My favorite thing to do on a hot summer day is to go to the beach with lots of books to keep me company.
    Thanks for entering me in your giveaway.

    I love your Amish Village series and the
    quilting series, I don’t want them to stop!! Are you planning on writing any more on the series? I live in Michigan and go there quite a lot. That is where I found your books.
