#NEWBOOKALERT #NEWBOOKRELEASE ARISE FROM THE ASHES @wnlbooktours #NONFICTION #INSPIRATIONAL


Woo hoo!!! It's release day for Arise From The Ashes 
I hope you'll pick up a copy. 

First week sales are critical for hitting those bestseller lists.





Arise from the Ashes, are stories of hope from seven women from all walks of life. These women who have gone through the fire, walked in places that others dare not tread, but women who are not ashamed of their scars and willing to bare it all.  

They share their journey of going from trials to triumph and pain to purpose. Arise from the Ashes is filled with inspiration, wisdom and life’s lessons from women who have endured personal pain and have come through empowered, encouraged and victorious. 











Seven beautifully told anthologies of women who have gone through the fire, walked in places that others dare not tread."

For Paulette Harper in 'Losing to Win" in how she dealt with it all after her divorce.
"Divorce was a painfully difficult choice. However, once the decision was made, I had to make plans for my new future." How did she begin this process? Read along and see how this process worked out so well for her. "Never Let Disappointments in Life Define Your Purpose."

For Yolando Cooksey in 'Unfailing Love' what happens after she gives her life truly to God? Definitely trying to 'distract myself with drugs, alcohol and men...too many men' was not the way to go in life. What happens when Yolando makes a change in her life?

For Donna Moses in 'Unexpected Life's Transitions' ...Will God deliver her god sister in this battle of sickness? What happens when it seems like everything changes where a bereavement class on death helps? What happened while attending church was brought back in her life by rekindling her relationship with the Lord?

For Cassietta Jefferson in "Not Forgotten: After The Storm" What will happens after a ectopic pregnancy ruptured? How was this lucky for her to have happened? After some time would there be another 'second dilationa and curettage? ' Why was I so angry with my husband and myself? After another pregnancy...was this to be? What will happen as she began to forgive herself and forms a new relationship with God in learning there is life after miscarriage and peace after the storm?

For Angie Jones in "God Sees What We Cannot See" After surgery [hysterectomy] when thinking all was well only to see I was finally back at the emergency room due to illness 'masses on her pancreas and liver' that needed to be checked out. So, what was happening to her? Was it cancer? Why was this happening to Angie? What lessons came from all of this situation was truly their for Angie?

For Sydney Delatorre in "Hope Exists" A story "an account of how pain hardened my heart against my heavenly Father and the destructive path I chose before returning home to Him." For there exist Hope through his son Jesus."

For Michelle Mills in "Back Down Memory Lane" with her mother was dealing with 'the unpredictable and dreadful diseases: Dementia, Congestive Heart Failure and COPD. How will this change lives around her with the mom being so strong willed and stubbornly set in her ways?" What will happen as life goes on with Michelle's mom and her daughter? Since Plan A didn't work would Plan B work with full blown dementia. Then on to a residential home and not worry so much by the what ifs...now she [Lillie Mae Christopher] is safe even though her mom doesn't know her. What a story!

Wow, is all I can say because these were some wonderfully told inspirational anthologies that will definitely give the reader much for thought long after the read. "Rise from the Ashes is filled with inspiration, wisdom and life’s lessons from women who have endured personal pain and have come through empowered, encouraged and victorious" that I would definitely recommend to all as a good read!

What readers are saying about the book...


"This YA contemporary story opens with intrigue(like its cover!) and adds suspenseful layers all the way to the tumultuous end."
- Christina Dwivedi


"This novel is not teen angst, but the excitement of young love—the madness and muddle of thinking the wrong thing, the shame and mortification of saying it. Words are analyzed before spoken, parsed and reconsidered and judged and considered again. The author’s brilliance is in hearing the thoughts of her characters so clearly." - Amazon Reviewer 

"RJ Garcia’s twisting tale navigates the lives of a fringe group of teens who discover some of the most sinister secrets exist in the cracks of idyllic small-town life. Reminiscent of the mood and haunting tone of VC Andrews’ greatest novels, the plot toes a line between the eerie and the downright horrific with characters that jump off the page and into your heart." - Amazon Reviewer

An eyeless body. A menacing stranger. And a tangled mystery.

It’s the summer of 1923 and two cousins hunting for hidden gold stumble on an decayed body. Fourteen-year-old Tom Wallace is convinced the death was murder and drags his older cousin into a harrowing struggle against a shadowy group. Not even attempts on their lives can stop the boys from relentlessly pursuing the mystery. But when their curiosity leads them to investigate a derelict barge, what they find is bigger and more dangerous than anything they could have imagined.



A STAIRWAY TO DANGER is a fun-filled thriller with humor and adventure in a Twain-like setting.



Winner! Orangeberry Hall of Fame Best Young Adult novel for 2013



Steps Into Darkness (A Shakertown Adventure, Book 2)



Explosions, sabotage, deadly warnings, and a dangerous red-haired man. Imagine The Hardy Boys meet Tom Sawyer. Add a layer of teen angst and excitement plus a mysterious group stirring up racial tensions.



That’s STEPS INTO DARKNESS, the second book in the Shakertown Adventure Series by Ben Woodard.



Fourteen-year-old Tom Wallace again makes plans to escape the small town in the 1923 Kentucky countryside—the town that won’t let him forget his past, when a horrific event changes his mind. He teams with his cousin, Will, and young FBI agent Rick Sweeney to solve a perplexing mystery. Attempts on the boys’ lives and a bewildering list of suspects keep them on edge and confused until they discover the real villain—and then wish they hadn’t.



STEPS INTO DARKNESS is a fun, page-turning thriller with a hint of romance that delivers adventure and mystery while exploring the fears of a teen living with a frightful memory.

#BEHINDTHESCENES #NEWBOOKALERT #CHRISTIAN #ROMANCE #SUSPENSE


Welcome to Behind The Scenes

Todays featured author is

Becca Hart










Two years after a violent break-in left Elizabeth Seymour widowed and with blood on her hands, she’s finally starting over in the little town of Avalon, Ohio, with her daughter, Haley. She has the house of her dreams, a good church, and friends she can rely on. Everything seems to be falling into place—until she receives a threatening note from Veronica Sadowsky, the sister of the man Elizabeth shot, the same woman who tried to ruin her life once before. This time, though, Veronica won’t stop until she gets revenge.

When Elizabeth's home goes up in flames, she turns to family friend, Doctor Gilbert Callahan, a widowed father of three. He invites her and Haley to stay with his family. As Veronica draws Elizabeth into a game of increasing stakes, she and Gilbert only grow closer, learning to trust and rely on one another. But Elizabeth’s presence in Gilbert’s home endangers his family and creates tension with his oldest son. Preserving peace in the house is hard enough, but when Veronica comes after Haley, Elizabeth will risk everything—including her life—to get her child back.




Why do you write?

I love it; I can't not write. I began writing seriously at fifteen when I felt God's calling on my life to become an author. He guides this endeavor as much as He guides every endeavor I embark on, and I write to bring Him glory. 

Are Elizabeth and Gilbert based on anyone in real life?

Yes. Elizabeth is a combination of me and my mom with a sense of humor more like one of my best friends, Jenelle. Gilbert is drawn mainly from my husband with a little of my dad thrown in.

What was the inspiration behind the book (why did you write it)?

The novel that inspired it was Sophie's Heart, a Christian romance by Lori Wick. Though that novel isn't suspense, it does tell a moving story of a woman and man trying to put their lives back on track with God's help and falling in love in the midst of trial, and that's essentially what my novel is about with some suspense. Against All Odds kind of demanded to be written; I worked on it for a solid ten years, trying to get it right, before I ever submitted it to Anaiah Press. I love the characters, and I genuinely wanted to tell their story. 

Who (or what) is your greatest encourager when you write?
Mainly, my husband. My daughter encourages me quite a bit too, tells me she's proud of me.

What genre is your book? 

Christian romantic suspense

Any tips for upcoming authors?

Persevere, read a lot, study the craft, and when you submit (your best draft) to a publisher or agent, follow their guidelines to the letter and make it as professional as humanly possible. And do it because you love it--there's not a lot of money in art of any kind, unfortunately, so go ahead and dream big but don't expect to make a living out of it.

How can readers connect with you?

Several ways. My website/blog is at https://beccahartauthor.wixsite.com/website, my email is beccahart.author@gmail.com, on Twitter @BeccaHart16, and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/beccahartauthor.
