Blessings of Love – Book 6 – “Backward Blessings” by Rachel A. Anderson

Blessings of Love – Book 6 – “Backward Blessings” by Rachel A. Anderson

Today’s the release date for the final book of the amazing BLESSINGS OF LOVE sweet romance novella series (my book is out this Friday).  Today, it’s BACKWARDS BLESSINGS, by Rachel A. Anderson.

First, a little about Rachael

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of Rachel Andersen’s favorite memories in college was when a music theory professor turned one of her exams back to her. With a twinkle in his eye, he said, “I can always tell that it’s your paper because you have a story written on the back.” She was just killing time after the ear training and aural skills portions of the test (where he played notes, and the students were to write down the interval or melody), but it hinted at a larger love. She loves stories. She loves reading them, she loves hearing them, she loves telling them, and she loves living them!

Growing up as the oldest of nine children, she used stories to make mundane (and sometimes disgusting) tasks fly by like when she quoted Disney movies for her youngest siblings while she changed diapers or got them dressed. Though the youngest sibling is a senior in high school, the quotes she pulled out of thin air are used as family jokes that rock the house with laughter.

Stories propelled her through difficult days in college. They sustained her through the stress of student teaching. They were her favorite time of day in elementary and early childhood classrooms.

Her only hope is that these stories bring you as much joy and pleasure as they bring her!

You can follow Rachel at her website, on Facebook and on her Amazon Author Page.

And now for the book!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jake Littlefield hates Thanksgiving. So, naturally, his sister abandons him to spend the holiday in Blessings where the town starts celebrating a week early. The only thing keeping him from hopping onto the next plane to Miami is the promise his sister makes to leave his love life alone for a year if he’ll endure a week-long stay in Blessings. At least, that’s what he’s telling himself…

Teresa Rampton’s marriage and subsequent divorce has left her a little gun-shy in the romance department. Content to wrap her world around her young son Logan, she’s unprepared when her new guest comes in for a landing.

Now, if he’d just ask her to the Harvest Ball, things might go smoothly with the mysterious pilot taking control of her Thanksgiving.

You can buy it on Amazon RIGHT NOW!

Last, but certainly not least, we’ve got a great interview with Rachel!

Who is your favorite author?

That’s such a tough question! The author I pick up almost without question is Rick Riordan though that may be more because I fell in love with his first characters and they’ve been woven into almost every series he’s written in one way or another.

How do you describe your writing style?

My writing style is sensitive to the delicate nature of relationships and emotions. I enjoy peeling back the curtain in the lives of men and women who face difficult challenges and come off conqueror in the hopes of inspiring readers to try to do the same.

Why should we read your books?

My books bring humor and compassion to relatable experiences. Though they are geared toward adults, they are safe enough that children and teens could read them without the questionable material to which they are so often exposed. While not overtly Christian, there are themes of redemption and healing in each of her stories.

Have any of your characters been modelled after yourself?

All of my characters have a piece of me in them. Teresa Rampton is probably the most like me. Though I’ve never been married, I know the walls she’s erected to protect herself intimately. Like her, I’m a good cook and a decent homemaker though I can come across intimidating and cold from time to time. I’m learning how to be a better advocate for myself and others as well, and I have a wonderful support network of people like Jake who help me learn how to do that for myself instead of trying to do that for me.

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

Ooh! Interesting! I’ve always wanted to run a bed and breakfast, so I would probably switch places for Teresa for a day–especially if I could go to the Harvest Blessings festival with Logan! That kid cracks me up!

What books have most influenced your life?

While I was writing Backward Blessings, I got a book-craving for Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles. Reading Cinder and Scarlet helped me develop more vibrant descriptions which made it easier to finish the project. So, those books helped me most recently. C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia series opened a new world of literary possibilities to me, followed closely by J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Both series helped me to embrace my own quirks and trust that they would become strengths which could shape the world.

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

I’ve had a desire to retell the Rapunzel fairy tale lately. I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the moment of reunion with the prince where Rapunzel nurses him back to health after he’s blinded by the witch. At least one version of the fairy tale implied that Rapunzel and the prince had twins somewhere along the way, and I’d love to dig myself into some research. I’d love to peel back some of the emotion behind a reunion where the prince also discovered he was a father (or at least met his children) for the first time.

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

Ooh! Monkees because “I’m a Believer” is the anthem of romance authors everywhere!

Who should play you in a film of your life?

The only thing I know for sure is that whoever plays me has to have a ton of curly hair!

Blessings of Love – Book 5 – “Twice Blessed” by J.J. DiBenedetto

Blessings of Love – Book 5 – “Twice Blessed” by J.J. DiBenedetto

Today’s the release date for my book in the excellent BLESSINGS OF LOVE sweet romance novella series!  It’s called TWICE BLESSED

First, a little about me, in case you’re new here…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

J.J. DiBenedetto is the author of the Dream Series.  He lives in Arlington, Virginia with his lovely wife and Danny, a white cat who’s trained them both.  He’s originally from Yonkers, New York.  He loves the New York Giants, fondue, photography, travel, the opera and he’s a huge science-fiction and fantasy geek.

And now for the book!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Allison is a widow who’s been raising her daughter alone for the last four years. Mike is a teacher who’s new to the town of Blessings. They only have one thing in common: Lucy – Allison’s daughter, Mike’s student, and a nine-year-old who’s watched “The Parent Trap” way too often.

Both Allison and Mike are onto Lucy’s scheme to play matchmaker, but will they fall for each other anyway?

You can buy it on Amazon RIGHT NOW!

As an interesting aside (well, interesting to me, anyway!), I cast all my books with movie or TV actors, and TWICE BLESSED is no exception.  For Allison, I picture Jill Wagner (star of several Hallmark Channel romances, and also a new Hallmark Mystery series, “Mystery 101”.  And for Mike, it’s Dylan Bruce, who’s also a Hallmark Channel veteran (he’s the star of one of my favorites, “A Novel Romance” alongside Amy Acker).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last, but certainly not least, here’s an interview with me…

Who is your favorite author?

It’s so hard to pick just one.  I’d probably go with Alastair Reynolds right now – I love his writing style, and I’m a huge sci-fi fan, so it’s hard to go wrong with him.

How do you describe your writing style?

Conversational and engaging, with a lot of humor, for the most part.

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

Because they’ve got a little bit of everything: romance, mystery, humor and plenty of emotion.  and because there’s always a twist to them, to keep you guessing a little bit!

Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself?

I created them all, so I have to say there’s at least a little piece of me in most of them.  But there’s nobody directly modeled after myself in any of my books (thankfully!)

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

I’d have to pick Sam, the title character of my mystery, Mr. Smith and the Roach.  It’d be really interesting to live his life for one day!

What books have most influenced your life?

Too many to count!  But I can tell you the one book that directly led to my writing and publishing my books: Transpecial by Jennifer R. Povey.  Jenna’s a friend, and when she sold that novel to a publisher, it really made me sit up and think, “why can’t I do it, too?”  So I did (it’s also a really good book, so check it out!).

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

I could pick a lot of books here.  But one that always really frustrated me was the Galactic Milieu  by Julian May.  The books are good, and I enjoyed them.  But she changed the ending because a lot of readers figured out one of the big twists and talked about it on the Internet (this was back in the old Usenet days).  I’d go and put back the original ending, if it were up to me.

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

Monkees!  I loved them as a kid (still do).  I remember very clearly that a Monkees album (yes, a record album, one of those big black discs that you put on a turntable!) was the very last Christmas gift I ever got that was from Santa Claus himself (at least, that’s what the tag on the gift said!).

Who should play you in a film of your life?

Well, it wouldn’t be the most exciting movie ever.  But how about Jack Black?  He’s a good match physically, and he can do socially awkward really well.

She’s determined to stay grounded while he can’t wait to leave.

Katie Holloway is content in Blessings, Kansas, the town that’s the only family she has ever known. When her best friend shows up with Will, the handsome older brother that Katie hasn’t seen in years, Katie is determined to prove to him that small-town living has its virtues.

After his father’s injury, Will Ryan reluctantly agrees to come back to help with the harvest but wants to get the job done sooner rather than later. When he sees Katie all grown up, he reconsiders his rush to leave. There’s just one problem: she’s his little sister’s best friend and that makes her off-limits.

With the harvest taking longer than anticipated, Katie puts Will to good use arranging a Thanksgiving meal for townsfolks who could use a place to go. As they grow closer, an opportunity presented to Will threatens to end it all before their love has a chance to blossom.

Last, but certainly not least, we’ve got a great interview with Rachael!

Who is your favorite author?

Do I have to choose just one? If I stick to the romance genre, Becky Monson is definitely a favorite. I love her witty, funny, klutzy characters. I can’t help but sympathize with them and root for a happily ever after.

How do you describe your writing style?

Eclectic. I tend to write the way I read—I’ll read just about any genre (as long as it’s clean 😉 ). I do tend to include a lot of humor (I can’t take much of anything seriously), horses often make an appearance (they’re my favorite animal of all time), and I try really hard to capture the full spectrum of emotions people experience. When the characters and their dialogue are central to the plot, they feel like well-rounded, believable, delicious stories that I’d want to read.

Why should we read your books?

One of my f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e things as an author is getting a quick note from someone who read my books and enjoyed them. It’s an incredible act of vulnerability to me to allow someone to see something so personal to me. All I want as an author is to offer a bit of escapism, a little laughter, some happy sighs, and a feeling of satisfaction when all is said and done.

Have any of your characters been modelled after yourself?

All. The. Time. That’s another thing I think is really cool about writing—it gives me a chance to be introspective and discover parts about myself that I’d otherwise forgotten. I can embrace whatever is quirky or interesting about myself and bestow those traits to my characters. They always deliver it in a much more enjoyable way than I ever could because they have the benefit of me thinking it through before they do it.

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

I’m not sure I could choose just one…each time I get to peek into the life of one of my characters, I’m thoroughly entertained. Yes, they are fictitious but it’s a reflection of real life. I did have to choose ONE, I think I’d like to be Ruby from When a Star Falls, my Pop Stars Series. She’s a regular gal with a knack for music and songwriting, who’s unexpectedly catapulted into stardom. As an introvert, it would be interesting to live that kind of extroverted lifestyle…just for a day.

What books have most influenced your life?

There are so many! Beyond the scriptures, I have loved and been impressed by classics like Black Beauty by Anna Sewell and Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. Then there are more modern ones, like Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine and These is My Words by Nancy E. Turner. Honestly, I can’t think of a book that didn’t have an influence on my life, even if it was only to entertain me for a few hours.

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

Hmm…I haven’t thought much about redoing another’s work because I’m usually in awe of another person’s storytelling abilities and don’t feel like I could add to it. I will say, I would love to give Black Beauty a modern twist because, horses. 😉 Can’t ever have too many horse books as far as I’m concerned.

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

Monkees, ‘cause that’s what I remember my mom listening to, although my husband is a staunch Beatles supporter. I’m sort of stuck in the middle.

Who should play you in a film of your life?

If I could choose anyone, I’d be honored to have Audrey Hepburn portray me, not because I look anything like her, but because I think she’s a fascinating person with an incredible history. If we’re talking about looks alone, I’ve been told I look like Kirsten Dunst. I’d be alright with her, too.

Sweet, determined Georgie has other ideas, like staying put and a scheme to set him up with her next door neighbor, Hope.

Hope Fields has seen Georgie Able in action enough to recognize the matchmaking glint in her eye. She’s determined to ignore her elderly neighbor’s attempts to set her up with her grandson, especially when Greyson’s disdain for Blessings is so obvious. Unfortunately, it’s easier said than done, because Georgie shows up at her job, Healing Hoofbeats, with Greyson in tow.

As the town’s Thanksgiving festivities approach, Hope’s determination wanes. Will her love be enough to bless Greyson’s heart?

Can the artist with a past brush over ancient history, or will she send away the man she loves to achieve his dreams without her?

You can buy it on Amazon RIGHT NOW!

Last, but certainly not least, we’ve got a great interview with Danielle!

Who is your favorite author?

My favorite author is Patrick O’Brian. His books, the Master and Commander series, got me interested in studying Naval history and then West Indies journals. His gift of prose and character development inspired me write my first novel.

How do you describe your writing style?

I think I manage to pull off realistic, modern voice even in my historical novels while still taking the reader back. I like tangible, scenic descriptions and use a lot of dialogue and what I hope is wit in my contemporary romances.

Why should we read your books?

My books are for anyone that likes clean romance with an interesting adventure or colorful relationship problem. I try to have complex villains, and there’s always a journey of self-awareness and making dreams come true.

Have any of your characters been modelled after yourself?

There’s a little bit of myself in all of my characters, especially my contemporary heroines. They tend to need a boost of confidence in their abilities, but they’re relentless in hanging on until they get what they want.

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

I think I’d enjoy being Sara Hart for a day. She runs the Turtle Soup café in Atlanta and has to stay sharp on the days marine biologist, Jack Brandon storms in with his gruff attitude and cocky attitude. This hate-to-love romance is Turtle Soup. Available on Amazon.com.

What books have most influenced your life?

Wow, that’s a huge question. I’d have to go with Agatha Christie’s mysteries, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Master and Commander, Post Captain, Horatio Hornblower, a few Nicholas Sparks books, and I’m pretty religious, so I’d have to add the Bible and other scriptures in there.

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

Oh my goodness! Gone With the Wind. I get so mad every time I finish it, and it still ends the same.

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

Beatles, of course. Fun. Classic. Deep. Rebellious. Thoughtful.

Who should play you in a film of your life?

The nerdiest girl you can find.

The Dream Doctor Mysteries – Book Tour Preview!

The Dream Doctor Mysteries – Book Tour Preview!

Dream Student
The Dream Doctor Mysteries Prequel
by J.J. DiBenedetto
Genre: Paranormal Mystery
Sara Barnes has her life totally under control. All she has to worry about
is college exams, Christmas shopping, applying to medical school–and
what to do about the cute freshman who has a crush on her. And
everything is going according to plan, until the night she starts
dreaming other people’s dreams.
It’s bad enough that every night is a theater of her friends’ and
classmates’ secret fantasies. Worse yet are the other dreams, the
dark ones featuring a strange, terrifying man committing unspeakable
crimes.
As the nightmares increase, Sara’s life becomes a blur of waking and
sleeping, of terror and urgency. Because if she was given this
dream-sharing gift for a reason, it must be to stop the killer madman
she’s come to know all too well. But how can she stop him when she’s
just a student, and they’re only dreams?
Dream Student is
the thrilling prequel to the Dream Doctor Mysteries.
**Start the series FREE!!**
Dream Doctor
The Dream Doctor Mysteries Book 1
Between adjusting to life as a newlywed and trying to survive the first month
of medical school, Sara Alderson has a lot on her plate. She
definitely doesn’t need to start visiting other people’s dreams
again. Unfortunately for her, it’s happening anyway.
Every night, she sees a different person and a different dream. But every
dreamer has one thing in common: they all hate Dr. Morris, the least
popular professor in the medical school, and they’re all dreaming
about seeing him – or making him – dead.
Once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a
murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects
to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris
every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.
**only .99 cents!**
Dream Child
The Dream Doctor Mysteries Book 2
Dr. Sara Alderson can deal with eighty-hour workweeks as a resident at
Children’s Hospital. Dealing with crises in the Emergency Room or
the OR is second nature to her. But now she faces a challenge that
all of her training and experience hasn’t prepared her for: Lizzie,
her four-year-old daughter, has inherited her ability to see other
people’s dreams.
After Lizzie befriends a young boy on a trip to Washington, DC, and then
wakes up in a panic that night because of a “bad funny dream,”
Sara knows exactly what it means: her daughter is visiting the boy’s
dreams. Complicating matters is the fact that the boy’s father is a
Congressman, and he’s dreaming about a “scary man in a big black
car” threatening his Daddy.
Unraveling a case of political corruption and blackmail would be hard
enough for Sara under the best of circumstances. But when she has to view
everything through the eyes of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.
Dream Family
The Dream Doctor Mysteries Book 3
Dr. Sara Alderson didn’t think she had a problem in the world, when she
walked into the office for her first day as a partner in her own
medical practice. And then the police showed up and arrested her for
a crime she couldn’t possibly have committed. Twenty four hours
later, after a horrifying day and night in jail, Sara comes home a
different – and completely broken – woman.
Clearing her name is her first challenge, but that’s nothing compared to the
task of rebuilding her shattered psyche. And the only way she can do
that is with the help of the supernatural dreams, the same dreams
that have nearly cost Sara her sanity – and almost got her killed –
in the past.
Waking Dream
The Dream Doctor Mysteries Book 4
After nearly a decade of visiting other people’s dreams, Sara Alderson
thought she had made peace with her supernatural gift. Until one
night, while watching her husband dream, she saw someone else
watching him, too: a mysterious woman in a red dress.
The woman in red keeps appearing in the dreams of Sara’s husband and
his co-workers. Sara doesn’t know if this mystery woman is trying
to steal her husband, drive him mad or something even worse. All she
does know is that now she has something she never imagined: a
nemesis. And the only thing more dangerous than a nemesis who shares
her ability to step into other people’s dreams, is one who knows
far more about that ability and how to control it than Sara does.
Dream Reunion
The Dream Doctor Mysteries Book 5
Dr. Sara Alderson is heading back to college for her ten-year class
reunion. Her husband and two of her children are coming with her –
and so are her supernatural dreams.
One of her old classmates is becoming more frantic with every passing
night. Sara can’t see his face, but she can see everything else in
his dreams, and he’s coming closer and closer to committing a
desperate act to try and save his business. Sara’s the only one who
can save him, and his family – if she can figure out who he is and
what he’s planning in time.
Dream Home
The Dream Doctor Mysteries Book 6
Dr. Sara Alderson thought she was securing her and her family’s future
when she moved them to a small town in New York and took a job as

For another, she’s visiting the dreams of an old man who’s seeing

convinced that the visions are true – and as winter closes in, Sara
is starting to think he might be right.

and a white cat who rules the roost.
His passions are photography, travel, the opera,
the New York Giants, and of course writing.
Mr. DiBenedetto is devoted to writing books with a sense of mysticism to
entertain and perhaps invite his readers to suspend belief in a way
they might never have.
Since he was very young , he has always been intrigued with the
supernatural and things that can’t be explained rationally.
By always asking way too many questions, it piqued his interest to the
point of setting his writing off and running when he grew up! All the
curiosity building up all those years were finally getting put into
words to captivate readers. And it hasn’t ended. His main goal is to
share all the stories he has inside, putting pen to paper. And that’s
how the Dream Series was born.
