Summertime Writing–the Chaos and the Glory

By Dani Pettrey

Hi, friends! Happy Wednesday. I’m super excited to have my friend and fellow Bethany House suspense author, Jaime Jo Wright, guest blogging today. Enjoy her lovely post.

A Picture Paints 70,000 words

By Janet Raye Stevens

Story ideas can come from anywhere, a dream, a memory, a random comment overheard in a coffee shop. As for my romantic WWII-set time travel, Beryl Blue, Time Cop, the idea came from this picture I found in an antiques shop.

Now, it’s no secret I’m a World War II history buff, so when I saw that picture, I had to buy it (two dollars!). My first thought was, what would it be like to be there with these guys? Well . . .

When Is Obsession a Good Thing?

By Deanna Cabinian

Many stories have been written on the topic of obsession: The Girl on the Train, Lolita, Moby Dick…the list goes on. Most of these are cautionary tales. Don’t get obsessed; it could lead to mayhem and self-destruction. But sometimes obsession can be beneficial.
