Welcome to Write to the Point Wednesdays.

Last week I said I would do a couple of author interviews a month. Well, I have received so many responses from authors who want to talk to you that Write to the Point is going to be focusing on interviews and giveaway, at least for a while. I might pop in with progress on my work but I am looking forward to helping these other authors get their message out too. I am asking each author to share their Genesis 5020, I think it will be exciting to hear their stories.

I hope you will participate in the giveaways, there will be books of all kinds. Even if you don’t normally read fiction or maybe the genre that is being given away, please consider entering and giving the book away to someone else, or just try something new. Pass these posts along to your friends who enjoy reading.

I thought for this first post I would let you have a sneak peek at my back cover blurb I wrote for my book, A Bridge of Promise. This too is a WIP and could — and should —  undergo revision. Here is your first glimpse at what my book is all about.

“You’re trash. You’ll never amount to anything.” These are the words Ella Bradshaw heard from her father most of her life, and she believed him. Then Collin Kilbride kiss’s her one summer and tells her she’s beautiful. For the first time Ella allows hope to flourish in her heart. Maybe someone loved her after all.

For a year Ella holds on to the promise of Collin’s words. But the day she reveals her feelings to him she discovers he plans to marry someone else.

 Following that crushing blow Ella learns her entire confession of love was overheard by Luke Schilling, a friend of Collin’s. Luke promises to keep her secret and Ella finds herself trusting a complete stranger.

Even after Collin makes his feelings clear Ella vows to capture Collin’s heart. When Grace, Collin’s wife, reveals everything’s not as perfect as it appears, Ella has the foothold she needs to win Collin’s affections.

But Ella can’t out run the forces that pull at her — an expected pregnancy, her parent’s financial difficulties and the constant presence of Luke. She is pushed into making choices that lead her down a dangerous road of destruction and loneliness.  A road that leads her further and further away from the bridge that could give her the promise of love.

There you have it, you are the first to get a peek at my baby.

Be sure to check out Write to the Point next week as we will have our first author and book to gaveaway.

    Very impressive, Melissa! I’m so proud of you! 🙂
    I should’ve known you would get this far, when you were ALWAYS writing stories as far back as 28 years ago!! 🙂
    Good for you for pursuing your dream!

    • Thanks Yvonne. Your comment brought tears to my eyes. Only a few people are still in my life who know about that little girl who used to write stories and act out plays on my front porch. Remember that???
