Behold, An Author Interview!

*Drumroll* Today, I have something very special for y'all! This is my first time participating in a book tour. And I'm so excited! My friend, Faith, is publishing another book! And the best part? I got to interview her, asking her some questions about her new Christmas collection, Behold. I can already tell that Behold is a very special book, although I have not read it quite yet...(hopefully soon, though!) I have read her two other books: Dandelion Dust, and Love Needs No Words. They were both very enjoyable reads! I highly recommend each of them!!! 

Now, lets begin with the interview, shall we?!


1. Tell us a little about yourself and why you are passionate about writing, what made you first decide to start your self-publishing journey?
I’m Faith—a writer, reader, dreamer, coffee drinker, and most importantly, a daughter of the King. Although it took me a couple years and lots of searching to realize it, writing and shining Christ’s light through words truly is my passion. I’ve came to know many indie (self-published) authors since joining the blogging community back in 2015, but I wasn’t sure if I’d ever self-publish or not. It was a bit of a someday-dream. Then, when I wrote what later became my debut novella in late 2016/early 2017, I knew from the start that I would be independently publishing it.

2. What is special about your newest book, Behold? How does it stand apart from the other books you have written?
Behold is special to me because I love Christmas stories. Or, more accurately, I love Christmas and everything that accompanies it. Nearly all of the books/stories I have written, especially those that cover a span of time, have a Christmas scene tucked in there somewhere. But Behold is the only one entirely devoted to this season that I love. :)

3. So if I understand correctly, Behold is not just one story, but a collection of stories. How many stories are in Behold?
That’s correct! There are four stories in Behold, some historical and some contemporary. They each have a differing plot and theme, with a unique look at Christmas.

4. How long did it take you to write Behold from start to finish?
Since it’s a collection of short stories that I didn’t write all at once, that’s kind of hard to say. Some were written as far back as 2015 (but re-worked for the collection! :P), while others were written as recent as this past fall. So about three years, though most of these stories were written in the Novembers and Decembers of those years.

5. What makes Behold a Christmas story?
Actually, most of the stories are set the week of Christmas! One in particular happens entirely on Christmas Eve. I strived to show the hope, joy, and love of the Christmas season through each of these tales.

6. What lesson would you like your readers to take away from reading Behold?
It’s my prayer that, not only do readers enjoy these simple stories, but that they are reminded and encouraged to take a step back this Christmas. God the Father sent us a Savior that long ago night in Bethlehem, One who would later die for the sins of the world. And He is worthy of beholding.


Well, I for one loved hearing more about your writing journey and also learning a little bit more about your newest book! Thank you so much for letting me be apart of your book tour, Faith! And best wishes on all of your writing ventures! (Hopefully there will be many more books to come!)
