Win a $40 Amazon gift card with romance author Misty M. Beller

Recognize the name of this author? I featured her back in April!

Misty M. Beller writes romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love. She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep.

God has placed a desire in Misty's heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God's abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.


Writing is a dream come true for Misty. Her family, both immediate and extended, is the foundation that holds her secure in that dream.

She has just released the second book in the bestselling Heart of the Mountains series, called This Freedom Journey.

Adrien Lockman is through with the political unrest and bloodshed in his home country of France, so he sets off to the Canadian territory’s mountain frontier, in search of a place where a man can live his own life in peace. The last thing he expects to find is a woman, half-starved and half-frozen in a shack nestled among the towering peaks of the great Rocky Mountains.

Mary Standish thought she’d finally found a place where she was accepted, trapping with her husband for the Hudson Bay Company. But when he dies after a gruesome grizzly fight, she determines to carry on their work. After all, life in these remote mountains is better than enduring the scorn and snubs of “civilized” folk. When she’s forced to face a winter harder than any she’s endured yet, her stubbornness may just be the death of her. Until a stranger appears at her ramshackle door.

Adrien had planned to explore the mountain country all winter before he settles down to build a farm in the spring, but he can’t leave this woman to die in the elements. Even though she seems desperate for him to go. As Mary regains strength, she’s torn between wanting to save her dignity, and craving the respect of this man who’s slipped past her defenses. As the winter worsens, the truth becomes all too real—the only way they’ll survive is together.


Still curious about the author? Here are a few questions about books from a previous feature with Misty...

What inspires you to write?
Ooh, that’s a great question! I’d have to say a good story inspires me. Most of my books are set in the Rocky Mountains during the 1800s, and I love those remote frontier settings. A great story in that setting inspires me!

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Get connected in a good national writing group. I’m part of American Christian Fiction Writers, and there are lots of groups out there for almost any genre. These groups provide excellent opportunities to learn the craft of writing, marketing, and networking. I wouldn’t have lasted long as a writer without ACFW!

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Hmm…That’s a tough one! Fiction can be so subjective, depending on a person’s tastes. There are some great non-fiction books, too! If I had to pick just one, I’d say the Bible.

Amazon gift card and contemporary fiction author Krysten Lindsay Hager

I discovered this next author thanks to a connection with Diana Anderson-Tyler, whose name might sound familiar if you follow the blog.

Krysten Lindsay Hager writes about friendship, self-esteem, fitting in, frenemies, crushes, fame, first loves, and values.

Who would have thought that daydreaming in math class would pay off for Krysten down the road? I can tell you that I paid attention for the most part considering I was going for my math degree! Krysten went a different route...


Can Dreams Come True? is the first book of Krysten's Cecily Taylor Series.

You can probably guess that most teenage girls develop a crush or two on pop stars. Maybe you even have a crush at the moment. Well, you'll find that this book is will bring fruition to the imagination.


Cecily has always had a huge crush on singer Andrew Holiday and she wants to be an actress, so she tags along when her friend auditions for his new video.

However, the director isn’t looking for an actress, but rather the girl next door—and so is Andrew. Cecily gets a part in the video and all of Andrew’s attention on the set. Her friend begins to see red and Cecily’s boyfriend is seeing green—as in major jealousy.

A misunderstanding leaves Cecily and her boyfriend on the outs and Andrew hopes to pick up the pieces as he’s looking for someone more stable in his life than the models he’s dated.

Soon Cecily begins to realize Andrew understands her more than her small-town boyfriend—but can her perfect love match really be her favorite rock star?

Still curious about the author? Time for an interview with Krysten...

What inspires you to write?
I find inspiration all over. Music, movies, TV shows inspire me and I also find inspiration in everyday life. The idea of making people feel something is inspiring, but also knowing people will find an escape in a story inspires me to write. I know I really appreciate the books that helped me escape during a difficult time.

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
Each book has been different. Some have taken years, others about a year.per year. I am doing very well on that goal this year and on track to have about six books release in 2018. However, two of them were already partially written.

What are you working on right now?
I’m working on the sequel to my YA book, Can Dreams Come True right now. I’m also working on another YA novel and an adult novel. I have always enjoyed reading different genres, so I also like writing different ones as well.

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
To read as much as you can. It’s one thing that you really must do if you want to write. I also recommend having an idea box or Pinterest board to put story ideas and things that relate to your story.

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
I didn’t connect with it until I was an adult, but The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a must read. I get something out of it each time.

Amazon gift card and women's fiction author Heidi Chiavaroli

Want a bit of history in your next book?

Heidi Chiavaroli began writing a decade ago after Jesus had grabbed hold of her heart. She used her two boys’ nap times to pursue what she thought at the time was a foolish dream. Despite a long road to publication, she hasn’t stopped writing since.

Heidi loves exploring places that whisper of historical secrets, especially with her family. She loves running, hiking, baking, and makes her home in Massachusetts (just like me!).


Heidi won the 2014 ACFW Genesis contest in the historical category. Both her debut novel, Freedom’s Ring, and her sophomore novel, The Hidden Side, are 4½-star Romantic Times Top Picks.

The Hidden Side is a beautiful tale that captures the timeless struggles of the human heart, exploring both contemporary and historical relationships.

New York — 2016

Every day Natalie Abbott offers sage advice to hurting listeners on her popular radio program. But away from the comfort of the studio, she struggles to connect with her family; with an out-of-control daughter and an uncommunicative and isolated son, Natalie takes solace in the daily woes of others, turning a blind eye to the pressing issues mounting at her doorstep. Her carefully constructed world implodes when a member of the family commits an unspeakable act. Known as the woman with all the answers, for the first time Natalie questions her way forward.

New York — 1776

Mercy Howard watches in abject horror as the man she loves, her fiancĂ© Nathan Hale, is arrested and hanged as a spy. When asked to join the revolutionary spy ring in Manhattan, Mercy sees an opportunity to avenge Nathan’s death. But keeping her true loyalties hidden grows increasingly challenging as the charming Major John Andre of the King’s Army becomes more to her than a target for intelligence.

Mercy’s journals offer comfort to Natalie from across the centuries as both women struggle with their own secrets and well-kept shame—and wonder how deep God’s mercy truly extends.


And now, the moment you've probably been expecting...

Who wants to win something?!

Heidi Chiavaroli is giving away a couple items - one lucky Giveaway Guy reader will win a $20 Amazon gift card AND a paperback of The Hidden Side.
