Guest Author: Michelle Sutton

Today I'm excited to host a friend and fellow author, Michelle Sutton. She has been very busy for years in writing and reviewing Christian fiction. Authors know to send their work to her for her reviews are worth a lot. She has even reviewed "Love Letters" for me. A privilege.

Her first book will release in September. So before it comes out, let's talk about it. Here's our interview:

How long have you been writing?

It'll be five years next month since I wrote my first page.

Tell us about your book.

Annie had a great life and everything going for her. But she was lost (spiritually) and didn't know it. When her life was shattered one night by a vicious and meaningless attack, she had to reevalute what was important to her. Two brothers also fought for her affections and she was torn between them. No matter who she chose the other brother would lose, so it seemed like an impossible situation. But she discovered what real love was in the midst of her trial and in her darkest hour she sought the only one who could truly heal her heart.

Tell us the history of your story--like where you came up with the idea and how long it took you to write and anything else you'd like to share.

I based the story on a situation that happened to a friend of mine. It took me about five months (maybe less) to write the whole story.

With a family and all your online obligations (including the very successful and just launched e-zine "Christian Fiction Online Magazine") how do you find time to write?

Lately I haven't had the time to do anything but revise existing material. I'm plenty buried right now so I don't need to write anything new.

How can people get a hold of your book and when does it release?

My book officially releases in September but is available for pre-order now on Barnes and and You can also walk into any Barnes and Noble store and order it there.
