Bound // Blog Tour

with 8 Comments

 

It’s book tour time!  I am so excited for my lovely friend, Victoria – who is releasing her SECOND BOOK this year.

 

I’m delighted to be apart of her journey in this very small way and participate in promoting a special book called – Bound.

 

 

About The Book

 

Two souls don’t find each other by simple accident. ~Jorge Luis Borges~

 

Levi thought he was making this journey alone. But when he meets an eight-year-old girl at the train station, that plan is turned on its head.

Casey is running away and finds out that Levi is too. They decide to journey together and their lives are suddenly bound together in a journey they will not soon forget.

Both children come from abusive situations and are running from the dangers of their previous life. Levi is confident he can handle this on his own, but when Casey is injured on the journey, he must seek help from the first person that comes into his path, or rather people. Mr. and Mrs. Bellworth are simple farm folk with a heart for kids and a passion for serving God. When their unconditional love and gentle care surrounds Levi and Casey, the troubles of their previous lives melt away and they start to flourish. But when Casey is dragged back into the abusive world she came from, the emotional trauma, pain and distrust resurfaces. Will they be forever bound by their past? Or will God answer their prayers?

Author Interview

 

1.  What inspired Bound?

 

A writing Prompt that I did on my blog. My mind was spinning with ideas, so I just couldn’t not finish Levi and Casey’s story.

 

2. What is your favorite place and time to write?  Where and when do you usually end up writing?

 

At night in my bed. After everyone is asleep and it is dark, the distractions are at a minimum and I can usually get lost for an hour.

 

3. Do you have a favorite character in Bound?

 

Not really, I love them all so much!

 

4. What was your favorite moment / scene to write in Bound?

 

Either the epilogue, or the moment when Mikayla is pleading with Jason. The emotions were flying for that scene to the point that I was crying real tears!

 

5. What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?

 

I usually research as I go. I don’t always know what to research before I start until something I don’t know comes up, and then I research that.

 

6. What did you edit out of this book?

 

Actually, nothing aside from typos or awkward sentences. You would be surprised. God had a plan for this book and it was far more complete after the first draft than my first novel London In the Dark was.

 

7. What has been your favorite feedback about Bound so far? 

 

Everyone seems to love it! The common thread is that it pulled on their heartstrings. Can an author receive any higher praise? I think not!

 

8. Did you plan from the beginning to design Bound’s cover.  What made you decide that your design was just right for Bound?

 

I did. I was searching through images of a train station and when that one came up, it was so gorgeous, I couldn’t not use it! The train, the movement, the vibrancy of the colors, I thought it was stunning and just perfect!

 

9. Do you think there will be a sequel to Bound or do you see yourself writing another book about abused / neglected children and foster care?

 

I don’t think there will be a sequel. I have no plans for one right now. I do see myself writing similar stories in the future, but they will all be different. 😊

 

10. If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

 

To just write. Whether it sounds perfect or I do anything with it, just write. Also, wait for God’s timing.

    I like to write in bed at night as well, but it usually doesn’t last too long, because I actually have to go to sleep!

      That’s a shame….. Seriously, I think sleeping is such a waste of time – I don’t like it. 😛
