Author Spotlight: Jamie Carie |And… Announcing the WINNER of her special giveaway!

Last week I reviewed Jamie Carie’s Forgotten Castles series for you and this week I am doing a very special interview and announcing the winner of the contest I announced with the third review.

So read on:

 

A bit about Jamie via her WEBSITE:

About » Biography

A Preacher’s Daughter

As a preacher’s daughter, Jamie traveled with her dad—to and from Bible studies across Indiana—where they talked theology – creation and the fall, God’s love, the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch.

The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad would spend a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes. Nothing ever felt so special as a middle of the night slice of pie with her dad. And nothing could stop the writing pouring out of her.

As Jamie grew up, she discovered her heart was filled with songs and poetry. During high school she wrote lyrics for her brother’s band. After college, Jamie married, had two sons and decided to stay home with them. During this time, she wrote skits, poems, plays and short stories for schools and churches.
When her eldest son turned five she dove into the world of novels. She’d read romance novels for years, but couldn’t relate to the flawless, saintly heroines in Christian romance novels. So she decided to write her own.

Snow Angel was born on a frosty night in an old farmhouse in Fishers, Indiana, where the cold floor gave plenty of motivation for the snow scene. Jamie loves to write late at night when the house is quiet and the darkness seems alive. Elizabeth and Noah had been playacting in her head for a long time, so the story went fast.

Ten years later Snow Angel was published and won the ForeWord magazine Romance Book of the Year winner, was a National “Best Books 2007” Awards winner, and a 2008 RITA Awards® Best First Book finalist. It was the beginning of her dream career. Her newest novel, Rush to the Altar, is her first contemporary – a warm, funny and poignant love story about a widow woman who falls in love with an NBA player.

Jamie and her husband Tony have been married for twenty-five years and live in Indiana with their three sons, a giant dog named Leo and their newest baby, a half Siamese/half Snowshoe cat named Luna.

If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, “Live the dreams God has destined you for!”

 

 

And now for my interview.

 

Is there any particular inspiration behind the Forgotten Castles series for you?

 

This was my first series so I was initially excited to have the longer story arc to work with. A typical novel is around 90,000 words and while I find that comfortable it was challenging and thrilling to create a world/characters for more like 270,000 words. My other main inspiration for the series was Alexandria, the heroine. I wanted an adventuress who solves a mystery and then I had the idea of I’s. She travels to three countries that all start with I (Ireland, Iceland and Italy) to find her parents. I didn’t realize the challenge of setting a book in Iceland when I made that decision! Lol! The language and names had me banging my head against the keyboard on more than one occasion but I learned a lot writing that series. I fell in love with Ireland and Italy and have since traveled to Ireland and Scotland. (Italy is next!)  I was so blessed to find an Irish historian while writing book one of the series, The Guardian Duke, who checked my work for accuracy. My husband and I were able to meet him when we visited Killyleagh last September (for our 25th wedding anniversary) and I was able to actually tour the private castle, Killyleagh Castle, that is on the cover! I can’t tell you how amazed, blessed and surreal it felt to stand at the top of the castle and see the beautiful village of Killyleagh below after researching it for Alexandria and Gabriel whirlwind adventure around Ireland.

Are any of the characters modeled after real people you know? Family/ friends?

 

I never admit to that – lol! No, seriously, I think all of my characters are bits and pieces of myself, family and friends…and even other characters I’ve read about or watched in movies or on TV. It’s a wonderful mystery to me how a character starts out as a vague idea and then becomes living and breathing on the page with personality qualities and thoughts and feelings I didn’t know they would have. That is one of the glorious moments of creating a story.

image

 

 

What made this story so different from your others – this is the first of your stories that you’ve stretched into a series…

 

I think instead of that “historical” feel I was pulled toward solving a mystery, going on an adventure and, of course, true love. Love, what it looks like and the depths of it, is a theme that I will always explore in my writing. God’s love has no end and it is reflected in us and through us, his creation, so I will never reach the end of what it can look like. I love the thought of that!

image

 

 

Will we see more books in the series – perhaps focusing on other characters we’ve become attached to?

 

I’m not sure if I will ever revisit these characters or not but I consider it a huge compliment when readers ask for that. That means you fell in love with my characters like I did and a writer can’t ask for more!

IMG_2930

 

 

Or do you already have another series planned/ in the works/ pitched? If yes, Would you tell us a little about it?

 

I am now working on another three book series called the Land of Everyoung. It’s about three sisters who, when their father passes away, are sent on individual journeys that he has arranged for them in his will and set in the fantasy world of Everyoung. Think Lord of the Rings but with a lot less fighting scenes and more romance. It won’t be a continuous series so it can be read out of order. I hope to get book one, The King’s Chatelaine, out before the end of this year and as always, I’m very excited about what I’m currently writing and what is swirling in my mind for books two and three. Check my website www.jamiecarie.com and my Facebook here and here for more to come and contests coming up!

 

THANK YOU Jamie for taking the time to chat with us a bit! I don’t know about everyone else but I always enjoy reading about the story behind the story!

Lady Juliet Lindsay has made a colossal mistake. In the face of her parents’ rejection she realizes that a single stolen kiss could cost her everything. Sent to her aunt and uncle’s home in Scotland, she finds something in the rugged highland beauty that steals her heart…and a highland man, who seems her other half.

Iain MacLeon, chieftain of the clan MacLeon, has one thing on his mind in a time where politics are like a tempest brewing—sheep. He loves his people and his land but he didn’t know he also needed a woman to share the load. And then he sees her…the flame-haired Englishwoman who steals his heart and holds it hostage against all his beliefs and all he holds dear. But how will he persuade his clan to love her as he does?

 

And don’t miss the Forgotten Castles series!

The Forgotten Castles Series is a three book series that follows amateur sleuth, Lady Alexandria Featherstone, as she travels to Ireland (book one – The Guardian Duke), Iceland (book two – The Forgiven Duke), and Italy (book three – A Duke’s Promise) in search of her missing parents. Full of adventure, romance and mystery the three books sweep readers across Europe in pursuit of a famed invention. Along the way, Alexandria develops feelings for her guardian – the brooding Duke of St. Easton, who has recently suffered a physical blow that is changing his life. Gabriel thinks of his new charge as an unwanted complication in a time when his life is coming apart at the seams but soon comes to cherish her letters and admire her faith. Their journey will be fraught with danger as they come ever closer to God’s plan for their lives.

 

“Someday I will meet you and see your face.”

Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the king to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But the heart-driven Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment. Believing her parents are still alive, she travels to faraway lands to follow clues that may lead to their whereabouts.
Gabriel, pressured by the king’s ulterior motives, pursues Alexandria across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind.
When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure begins to pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.

 

 

Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon—the path of least resistance—Alexandria Featherstone sets off from Ireland to Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. Her glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton—the path less traveled by—on Dublin’s shore still haunts her. Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful and wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life of him or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.

 

From the Land of Fire and Ice back to England’s shores, Alexandria Featherstone finds herself the new Duchess of St. Easton. Her husband has promised a wedding trip to take them to the place where her imperiled parents were last seen — Italy and the marble caves of Carrara — but a powerful Italian duke plots against Alex and her treasure-hunting parents.

Hoping to save them, Alex and Gabriel travel to Italy by balloon. Fraught with danger on all sides and pressured by Gabriel’s affliction to the breaking point, they must learn to work and fight together. The mysterious key is within their grasp, but they have yet to recognize it. This journey will require steadfast faith in God and each other — a risk that will win them everything they want or lose them everything they have.

A MUST READ for every parent – whether you have girls or not | “Raising a Princess” by John Croyle

Raising A Princess by John CroyleFair warning: This book may make those of you with tender hearts – cry… hard.

Not all of us are called to be an advocate for children but all of us who follow Christ should do everything they can to stand up for and help any child who is not being treated the way they should – even if all we can do about that treatment is pray!

No. It’s not enough to just be a good parent to your own children, although that is one good way to show others how children should be treated.

It’s also very important to raise up our children the way we want them to raise up their own.

If more parents were properly informed of how to be the parent that God calls us to be, there would be a lot less children in need of wonderful organizations like the Big Oak Ranch.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book to EVERY parent! Having said that, it really doesn’t matter if you have children yet or not and it doesn’t matter if you have children but only boys…

Boys need the principles in this book just as much as girls. They also need to know to look for a young woman with all of these principles to marry one day. And they need to know how to incorporate these principles in their own children one day.

I feel it would be beneficial reading for parents who might not have had the best childhood themselves.

After reading this book with tears running down my cheeks, I realized that I was just as much in need of these principles as my daughter. I have spent so much of my life thinking very little of myself – because I listened, far too much, to the people in the world. Unfortunately the world is, far too often, full of people who do everything they can to drag you down.

And I didn’t have a clue that I needed to be praiseworthy, righteous, stable… I never knew how important it was to have a servant’s heart or Christ-like character. Nobody taught me – and it wasn’t really my mother’s fault either because nobody taught her either. And my dad is another story that I won’t go into here…

But since I became a mother, I have finally begun to follow God’s leading in my heart and in my life and with that has come a greater understanding of what being a mother means according to his word.

And I feel that this book will be a tremendous help in that endeavor. As it would be for any other parent who is trying to raise a Proverbs 31 woman!

 

5star

 

What B&H has to say about Raising a Princess:

The Bible’s frequently referenced chapter of Proverbs 31 defines godly womanhood.

In Raising a Princess, greatly respected child advocate John Croyle asks, “How do you equip a daughter to become the kind of woman who is described in Proverbs 31?” After all, a woman like that doesn’t appear out of nowhere. Somebody taught her to rise before dawn to provide for her household. Somebody gave her the moral compass to reach out her hand to the needy. Somebody taught her the business principles that made it possible for her to consider a field and buy it. Perhaps most importantly, somebody gave her a sufficiently strong sense of self that made it possible for her to go out and make a huge impact on the world around her.

Raising a Princess begins with the end in mind. The end is the Proverbs 31 woman; Croyle keeps her squarely in view as he looks at what parenting techniques help the reader to raise a princess who will someday be a queen. Based on Croyle’s life and experience parenting more than 1,800 abused and neglected children at Big Oak Ranch, alongside his two biological children, the book is organized around eight virtues a parent can build in his or her princess:

P: Praiseworthiness
R: Righteousness
I: Initiative
N: Nurturing
C: Character
E: Empowered
S: Servant-Hearted
S: Stability

This is the Last Stop in the Forgotten Castles series | “A Duke’s Promise” by Jamie Carie | AND A GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

A Duke's Promise

An ending has never been so bittersweet.

I’m not at all certain there are enough words to describe the emotions this powerful story has invoked within me!

In my review of book 2, I said that I hope they NEVER make it into a movie because they’ll just ruin it and I still feel that way. But I am amazed at the irony of that statement because there is a note about a certain part of the book only being shown properly on-screen. I simply can not explain it – except to say that it was an odd insight.

I also mentioned that I was quite happy about there was another book because it meant the adventure had not come to a close but now that it has, it is indeed bittersweet.

I love the way the story has ended and I am amazed at how Jamie Carie was able to leave the story with such a feeling of possibility. Even though this story has come to an end, there is such a feeling of what is still to come.

The third book in Jamie Carie’s Forgotten Castles series is a shining beacon of what God’s love is capable of accomplishing and even though the path of our heroes is not completely free of obstacles, their steps are clearly being led by God’s own hand.

The third book is certainly the most serious of the three but it is done so very well, the story simply flows from the second and I applaud Jamie’s talent once again.

Like me, you may not wish for the series to end, but you certainly do not want to miss this book. And don’t be surprised if you find your heart a little broken as you turn the last pages.

At least Jamie Carie has written stories of other adventures we can enjoy!

5star

Here is what B&H says about A Duke’s Promise:

Award-winning writer Jamie Caries concludes her most epic storyline with a wonderful twist in A Duke’s Promise, the final Forgotten Castles novel.

From the Land of Fire and Ice back to England’s shores, Alexandria Featherstone finds herself the new Duchess of St. Easton. Her husband has promised a wedding trip to take them to the place where her imperiled parents were last seen — Italy and the marble caves of Carrara — but a powerful Italian duke plots against Alex and her treasure-hunting parents.

Hoping to save them, Alex and Gabriel travel to Italy by balloon. Fraught with danger on all sides and pressured by Gabriel’s affliction to the breaking point, they must learn to work and fight together. The mysterious key is within their grasp, but they have yet to recognize it. This journey will require steadfast faith in God and each other — a risk that will win them everything they want or lose them everything they have.

Catch me if you can… | “The Forgiven Duke” By Jamie Carie | Book 2 in the Forgotten Castles series.

The Forgiven Duke

One more reason I LOVE Inspirational fiction!

WOW!

Forgive me for this but I hope they NEVER make this into a movie because they’ll just ruin it. The story is absolutely perfect as it is. I can not think of one thing I would change about it – even though I now have to move on to another book to continue the story…

Actually I’m quite happy about that because it means the adventure has not yet come to a close and that  would be tragic indeed.

The 2nd book in Jamie Carie’s Forgotten Castles series – “A Forgiven Duke” –
is just as remarkable as the 1st.

The highly unpredictable adventure of Lady Alexandria Featherstone continues with Duke Gabriel hot on her trail – or so it seems… I won’t spoil it for you. Just read it!

The tone of this second book is a bit more serious but Jamie Carie still finds room for hilarity and the typical missteps of her delightful characters.

Be careful though – you just might find yourself sitting up at all hours, because the book is just as difficult as the first, when it comes to putting it down.

Jamie Carie is an exceptionally talented author, carrying us along on this wild adventure. She is quite skilled at revealing snippets of what lies beneath the exterior of characters who give the appearance of being absolutely uncomplicated on the surface. And her skill certainly does not end there. The depth with which she describes the scenes around our characters are so vivid, you can almost hear hoof beats all around you.

Don’t miss this book!

And don’t worry if you read them out of order. Personally I always like to read a series in order but every now and then, it simply can not be done. Of course, you won’t want to miss the first book: The Guardian Duke  but this book is written so well that you can easily read it out of order if you must.

5star

 

Here is what B&H says about The Forgiven Duke:

Tethered by her impulsive promise to marry Lord John Lemon – the path of least resistance – Alexandria Featherstone sets off toward Iceland in search of her parents with a leaden heart. A glimpse of her guardian, the Duke of St. Easton – the path less traveled by – on Dublin’s shore still haunts her.

Will he come after her? Will he drag her back to London, quelling her mission to rescue her treasure-seeking parents, or might he decide to throw caution to the wind and choose Foy Pour Devoir: “Faith for Duty,” the St. Easton motto. The Featherstone motto Valens et Volens: “Willing and Able,” beats in her heart and thrums through her veins. She will find her parents and find their love, no matter the cost.

The powerful yet wing-clipped Duke of St. Easton has never known the challenge that has become his life since hearing his ward’s name. Alexandria Featherstone will be the life or the death of him. Only time and God’s plan will reveal just how much this man can endure for the prize of love.

A Duke, A Lady, An impossible adventure | “The Guardian Duke” by Jamie Carie | Book 1 in the Forgotten Castles series

The Guardian Duke by Jamie CarieI had forgotten just how much I LOVED historical romances until I picked up The Guardian Duke and started reading.

And all I can say is WOW!

What an amazing story – filled with unpredictable and wonderfully frustrating characters!

We get to follow along as our delightful Lady Alexandria embarks on a dangerous mission that many call foolish and the Duke of Easton is forced to follow.

It is exceptionally refreshing to read a wonderful story full of misadventure and chaos with none of the typical nonsense you read in mainstream historical fiction.

Instead of lusty encounters, adventure and faith take center stage and the result is much more satisfying and highly entertaining.

This novel does not need any such nonsense to hold the readers attention. The exceptionally written plot carries them along just fine.

In fact, before you know it, you’ve come to the end and you find yourself desperate to rush to the next book.

Fortunately… all three books are out now so you can read them in sequence. Which is where I am bound right now – book 2: The Forgiven Duke.

5star

 

Here is what B&H says about The Guardian Duke:

The Guardian Duke is award-winning novelist Jamie Carie’s most exciting story yet, a uniquely arranged Regency-era romantic adventure where hero and heroine know each other through written letters but have yet to meet.

Gabriel, the Duke of St. Easton, is ordered by the King to take guardianship over Lady Alexandria Featherstone whose parents are presumed dead after failing to return from a high profile treasure hunt. But Alexandria ignores this royal reassignment, believing her parents are still alive and duly following clues that may lead to their whereabouts. Gabriel, pressured by what are actually the King’s ulterior motives, pursues her across windswept England and the rolling green hills of Ireland but is always one step behind.

When they do meet, the search for earthly treasure will pale in comparison to what God has planned for both of them.

“Saving Gideon” by Amy Lillard | Clover Ridge Book 1

Saving GideonI stumbled upon Miss Lillard’s work entirely by accident but boy am I glad I did!

She is a true artist – painting a vivid picture with her words, that gives you the feeling that you could just step right in.

It’s a wonderful read.

I feel it is only fair to warn you that your time may be in danger with this book. Once you pick it up, you will not want to put it down.

The story flows so flawlessly, it rushes by your eyes and you will completely lose track of how long you’ve been reading.

The idea of converting to the Amish faith has become something of a phenomenon among readers and writers alike. And it has become increasingly difficult to present a new take on the idea or a story that doesn’t sound like a mirror image of every other one already out there.

But Amy Lillard has succeeded there. Her story is definitely original. Her characters are individual and her voice is intriguing.

She has an exceptional talent for writing a view of the Amish community through the eyes of a pampered Englisher and writing the view of that same Englisher through the eyes of a somewhat surly Amish man.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good story about life, loss and love.

Whether you enjoy Amish fiction or just Christian fiction, this story will appeal because there is enough of both worlds within the pages.

I can’t wait to move on to the next book in the series and I hope we have many more series from Amy Lillard to look forward to.

And here is a short blurb about the book from B&H Publishing Group:

Gideon Fisher wants one thing out of life — to be left alone. This is not the Amish way, but he’s devastated after the death of his wife and son to the point of losing his faith. He buys a farm on the outskirts of the district and pulls away from his community. But when a freak spring snowstorm brings a beautiful Englisher to his farm, what choice does Gideon have but to let her in?

Dallas socialite Avery Ann Hamilton is intrigued by the Amish farmer who pulls her out of the snow and into his austere lifestyle. Poor little rich girl, Avery has just gone through (yet another) bad breakup. Every man she meets only wants her for her father’s money. All she has ever wanted is to be loved for herself. Avery soon discovers the Oklahoma Amish country is the perfect place to hide out and heal her broken heart.

But she finds a peace in those back roads that she’s never felt before. Now her life has purpose and meaning as she connects with God and those around her. And there’s something more as she begins to care for this man who needs both love and forgiveness.

Gideon never wanted to live again much less fall in love, but Avery finds her way into his heart, showing him the beauty of life and God’s greatness. Yet as the feelings between Avery and Gideon grow, can they overcome their dissimilar lifestyles, or will their sheer differences pull them apart?

“Balancing it All” by Candace Cameron Bure

20140224-233040.jpgThis book was not at all what I expected
in a good way.

Yes it is exciting to read about Candace and Kirk’s childhood and rise to Hollywood fame but it’s also very exciting to see how they managed to avoid the pitfalls that so many other Hollywood stars fall right into.

It is comforting to see that the family is very much like most of our own. I think a lot of people tend to think that just because someone is in a movie or on TV – they’re nothing like “normal” people.

Cameron makes a point of letting us know that her family was very normal as she was growing up and that she and her husband do what they can to provide their children with as normal a life as possible now.

I will hazard a guess that there are things in the book that people will not agree with but they should remember this:

Just because you do something in a different way, doesn’t mean it’s right or wrong – it’s just right or wrong for your family. A lot of people I know say they could never homeschool but it is exactly the right choice for our family!

All-in-all, it’s a great story. And I really enjoyed the read!

As far as the read itself – It’s very well put-together and it flows beautifully. I’m not sure if the “with Dana Wilkerson” means she is the one who did the writing or if it was more of a collaboration but whoever did the writing did a Great job!

It pulls you right in, moves quick and will have you laughing all the way through. The descriptions are so vivid, I can see it all unfold right in front of me and you get a very real sense from it. This is no fairy tale story that has been crafted to make life sound perfect – it’s real!

I am also thrilled to see how Candace weaves her faith into everything. Even talking about her childhood, she credits her parent’s morality as one reason for her faith. BRAVO Candace! I know a lot of people have had nasty things to say about the whole “proverbs 31 woman” thing but I am really impressed that Candace has stuck to her beliefs and her faith! It’s not easy when you’re being attacked on all sides.

Please know that you have plenty of supporters too Candace!

Well worth reading! You won’t regret it!

And the cover gets my son’s approval – which is a VERY big deal. He likes that she’s wearing a dress and that she’s covered nicely – no low cut top or too short skirt. So, GOOD JOB to the cover designer as well!

A GREAT READ!

5star

Here is a bit more about the book from B&H Publishing Group:

“How do you do it all?”

That’s the question that wife, mom, actress, and best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure is often asked. And it’s a question that women everywhere are asking themselves as we seek to balance all of our roles, responsibilities, and opportunities.

So, how do we do it? Working since the age of 5, Candace has been in a balancing act for nearly her entire life. She is the first to tell you that there is no miracle formula for perfect execution in every area of your life, but there definitely are some lessons to be learned, lessons that come to life in Candace’s story.

Come along and dig into Candace’s story from her start in commercials, the balance-necessitating years on Full House, to adding on the roles of wife and mom while also returning to Hollywood. Insightful, funny, and poignant, Candace’s story will help you balance it all.
