Montana Mistletoe Blog Tour!

Welcome to the fourth stop on our Montana Mistletoe blog tour!

What is the premise of the collection?

LENA: Four lifelong friends made a pact when they were in college to be married by the time they were 28. As the deadline looms, each keeps busy with expanding career and experiences faltering Christmas spirit. Lori is a major struggling to bolster the small town's economy, Madison runs a Christmas store and often travels to build up stock, Deanna is the town's director of tourism on a campaign to put her town on the map, and Kathy is a writer living in California who has lost her small town faith. When romance arrives in Mistletoe, Montana, in unexpected Christmas packages, will each woman be able to accept the gift?

What’s it like working with three other authors on one story? Challenges, rewards?

KIM: This was my first novella experience, and I really enjoyed it! Sharing ideas with four other writers takes things in directions beyond your own imagination, and you have fellowship and feedback while you're writing. The challenge is getting the stories to "mesh"--making sure they lead into one another with everyone's story balancing the others. But it was great fun working out the "kinks."

Is there a character who you relate to and who made an input on your life?

DEBBY: My character, Deanna, was stubborn about not allowing Anthony back into her heart for fear of having it broken again. Working with her and helping her deal with her fear of being abandoned by her true love opened my eyes to how we need to allow the Lord to work in our hearts without interference.

What is the number one thing you’ve learned from your writing journey?

LENA: God’s way is always better than mine. His ways are higher, as are His thoughts. I need to stay close to Him, so He can reveal His truth to me through the process. And to trust Him to be in charge of my writing business.

Any future plans for your writing you’d like to share? Any specific dreams you’d like to accomplish in the area of writing?

LISA: One of my dreams is to write International suspense, set specifically in Africa. There are a few things brewing in that area that I’m waiting to see which way they go. One of the things I love about writing and reading is the chance to visit different time periods and places.

    I really liked the music on the trailer as well.
