Book Tour – “A Mighty Fortress” by Faith Blum

Book Tour – “A Mighty Fortress” by Faith Blum

Please welcome a fantastic author this morning…say hello to Faith Blum!  And be sure to read all the way to the end for a fantastic giveaway!


Faith Blum started writing at an early age. She started even before she could read! She even thought she could write better than Dr. Seuss. (The picture doesn’t show it well, but there are scribblings on the page of Green Eggs and Ham). Now that she has grown up a little more, she knows she will probably never reach the success of Dr. Seuss, but that doesn’t stop her from trying.

When she isn’t writing, Faith enjoys doing many right-brained activities such as reading, crafting, playing piano, and playing games with her family. One of her dreams is to visit Castle City, Montana, someday to see the ghost town she chose for her characters to live in. She currently lives on a hobby farm with her family in Wisconsin.

There are many ways to connect with Faith online. All of them can be found in one convenient place: On her website you can find links to her various social media sites and both of her blogs.

She’s got a special reason to be here today:

Who doesn’t like a birthday party? Faith certainly does. November 19th was the third birthday of her debut novel, A Mighty Fortress. To celebrate, she has all sorts of fun going on. First, she’s released a newly revised version of A Mighty Fortress. Second, she has most of her published books on sale. Third, she’s releasing the box set of all five of her novels for a special discounted price. And fourth, but not least, she now has the audiobook of her AMF available! Read on for more party fun.


“Stay back!” Joshua ordered.  He kept his eyes on the scene below while waving his arm in Ruth’s direction.  “Get deeper into the woods and stay down low to the ground.”

Joshua hazarded a glance behind him.  He could no longer see Ruth and breathed a sigh of relief.  In one swift move, he grabbed his rifle and lay flat to the ground.  Extending the rifle, he aimed at the shorter man whose gun was pointed at Bradshaw. 

Joshua and Ruth Brookings are traveling by stagecoach to finally join their parents in Montana. Attacked by murderous outlaws, the teens barely escape with their lives and must survive in the barren Wyoming and Montana territories and escape the man who’s hunting them.

Seven years ago, Jed Stuart ran away from home and joined Tom’s gang. Jed is tired of the lawlessness and wants out. The only problem? He is the boss’s right-hand man and will never be able to leave. And what’s one more stagecoach robbery, anyway?

Can Joshua lean on God’s strength to keep himself and his sister alive until they find a town?   Will Jed be able to face his anger or will it consume him completely? All three are running–the hunter and hunted. What will happen when they meet?

You can get it free right now on Amazon, and you can buy the paperback on Createspace (use code MBJB3XSY for a discount!)


Faith is excited to announce that she partnered with Michael Stanton to produce an audiobook version of her book. We’re not sure exactly when it will be available, but if you sign up for her New Releases newsletter, you will get an email with the announcement.


Faith also just released her first box set, the complete Hymns of the West series. It’s available for a special discounted pre-order price until November 26th and will stay at that price until November 30th.

Two Families…
The Brookings family move from Illinois to Montana to start a horse ranch. Their journey to Montana has hazards of its own, as does their life in Castle City, affecting each of them in various ways.
The Stuarts have been living a secluded life in Tennessee since the matriarch of the family died. When Jed runs away, they seclude themselves even more until a letter arrives that changes their lives—one at a time—forever.

Two Worldviews…
One family has believes in God with their whole hearts, living out their lives to the glory of God. The other family believes in God in a general sense, but they have no commitment toward Him or His ways.

One Providential God.
A stagecoach robbery instigates their meeting. Two years later, they meet again. Another year and their lives cross paths again. What happens when God’s providence brings two families with two different worldviews together in ways only He could have planned?

We’ve got a great interview with Faith:

Who is your favorite author?

Oh dear. Could you have started with a harder question? Um, let’s see. Who should I pick today? I’ll go with Louisa May Alcott. I love her book, Little Women.

How do you describe your writing style?

Casual, character driven (I think), and unique. I’m not really sure how other people would describe it, but there’s my take.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?

In my writing, I endeavor to write books that will encourage Christians and gently confront non-Christians with the Gospel. My books also approach many topics more conservatively and from a more family-oriented perspective than most of the Western genre.

Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself?

Ruth is slightly modeled after me. She and I are both shy, neither of us like heights, and we’re more interested in doing things inside than outside. Those are pretty much the only similarities, though.

If you could exchange lives with any of your characters for a day which character would you choose and why?

Adelaide Brown from my novella, Blessed Assurance. There’s just something about her that I really like and I want to find out what that is.

What books have most influenced your life?

The Holy Bible by God, Outlining Your Novel by K.M. Weiland, Best Friends for Life by Michael and Judy Phillips, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. There are probably more, but those are the ones I can think of.

If you could select one book that you could rewrite and add your own unique twist on, which book would that be and why?

It’s a story more than a book, but I’d like to—and plan to—do a rewrite of Beauty and the Beast. I love the idea behind the story, but not the magic, so I want to rewrite it in a way that does not use magic.

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

Neither. I’m more of a Classical music gal.

Who should play you in a film of your life?

Me? Um… I’m not really sure. Maybe Kate Winslet?

  1. This was a great interview! Really enjoyed reading it. And for me, I’m a Monkees kind of gal. 😀 (Okay, so I actually am not all that familiar with the Beatles, but the Monkees….*yes*!). I won’t get started on that though. I’d be here a while. ^.^ I’ll just say: Michael Nesmith. Yep. All of them are great though. Okay, I’ll stop, really.

    Anyway, again, fun post! 🙂
