A Warm Welcome to Clare Revell
Clare shares two of her favorite Bible verses, her favorite recipe and two excerpts from her new book, Dark Lake.
Favorite Bible Verses
1 Peter5v7: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
This is actually on a photo that I’ve had above my bed / my side of the bed since I was two, maybe younger. It’s always been there, always reminding me that Someone cares no matter how rotten I feel or how bad a day it’s been.
What a beautiful picture.
The other is Deuteronomy 5v33b: “Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.”
This always makes me giggle. But then I’m a huge Trekkie so it would do. Who’d have guessed that Live long and prosper comes from the Bible? And that came straight from Leonard Nimoy. Along with the Vulcan salute.

A Warm Welcome to Lisa Lickel Lisa will give away an e-Book of Meander Scar. To enter to win leave a comment and an email address below.
I’ve had the privilege of writing with Lisa for the past six years. Not only do I benefit from her critiques, but I also enjoy reading her books. Centrifugal Force, one she's discussing today, held me spellbound with the intensity, mystery, family dynamics, and foreign intrigue Lisa put into it. When I finished a chapter, I tried to scroll down to read the one she hadn’t written yet, so it’s a page turner.
Thank you, Gail. You’ve always been encouraging, and very good at forcing me to keep up with you, or withholding your own work from me when I fell behind you. I wasn’t sure I liked that at first, but I came to admire your technique in knowing me better than I knew myself. Since that first book we’ve worked on several together.
Actually, it’s the other way around. You’re the one who keeps me on task. I have to stay ahead, so I can keep up when i…
A Warm Welcome to Emily Conrad
Emily will give away an e-Book of Justice to a U.S. resident. Hi Emily, first, tell us a little about yourself.
Hi! I’m Emily Conrad, and I write Christian romances. My husband and I own two rescue dogs—an elderly pit bull mix who is snoring peacefully as I type, and an energetic coonhound who’s keeping an eye on me in hopes of going for a walk.
Lots of writers were avid readers as children. How about you? If so, what did you read?
I was! Charlotte’s Web was a favorite. I also read pretty much any book for my age range that featured horses—the Misty of Chincoteague series and The Saddle Club books, among others. Why do you write?
That’s an interesting question, because, for me, the answer has changed over the last five or six years. I write to explore what I believe and for the entertainment of stories. It’s always both of these, but depending on the manuscript, I find one “why” plays a bigger role than the other.
