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.

By Janet Raye Stevens

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 . . .

The Therapy of Nature

By Toni Kelly

As I sit outside writing this blog, I’m taking in the sounds of frogs and crickets, I’m enjoying The light summer breeze, I am sipping some cold iced tea, space and smelling the freshly cut grass. It is all absolutely therapeutic.

Google your Way to Genuineness

By Eleri Grace

Setting plays an important role in my novels, but I mostly make do with experiencing the setting from afar. Much as I would love to travel and do first-hand research, some of my settings are simply too far-flung or currently dangerous for that to be a viable option! For those novels . . .
