Tonight on the Write Stuff — Shredded with Kimberly Rae

shreddednewset-195x300A New Pastor, A Dying Church, and a Fifteen-Year-Old Secret

Jean has been called Blue Jean since childhood, but not because of her clothing. She wears nondescript colors and avoids people when she can. Her world is unhappy but predictable, until the new pastor and his handsome brother move into town. A chance encounter brings the town prostitute to church that Sunday, starting a chain reaction that will shake the church to its core.
Will Jean embrace the truth that will set her free, or will fear keep her captive forever?

If you loved Francine River’s Redeeming Love, Shredded is for you!

Shredded was inspired by the Biblical story of the scandalous woman wiping Jesus’ feet with her hair. If that story happened in a modern context on a larger scale, who would respond like the judgmental religious leader, who would respond like Jesus, and what would happen to the woman who’d been forgiven much?

Sowing — Tonight on the Write Stuff

SowingPeople are dead, slaughtered like animals in the night.

The reigning power, the Hulcondans, blame rebels. Rabreah, a rebel, knows it’s a lie. Her younger sister, Ariliah, doesn’t; like the majority of the townspeople, she believes those in authority, swallowing their words with complete trust. Besides, she’s too busy fighting her own silent war at home. While Rabreah dedicates herself to truth and freedom, Ariliah is just trying to survive their mother’s abuse.

But as unknown forces threaten to rip their world apart, the line between friend and enemy blurs. All is not as it seems.

In fact, nothing may be.

She has completed three books: one about elves that needs a massive revision before it ever sees the light of day, one that is part of her current story but also needs a massive revision to fit a new storyline, and the actual first book (Sowing) in her dystopian/medieval/grimdark/semi-romance series (The Purification Era). When she’s not writing, she’s usually Facebooking – ack! – or thinking about story stuff. Despite several of her writing friends claiming she’s Canadian, she is not; she lives in Ohio with her dear husband and their crazy cats.

About The Book

onesundayatatimefront

What does crazy look like? Let Deborah tell it, it’s the reflection that looks back at her in the mirror. She has a career she loves, two beautiful children and a handsome and successful husband. Her life seems to be the blueprint almost every woman she knows would kill to live. But working full-time, being a full-time mother, full-time wife and a full-time Sunday only Christian seems to be taking its toll on her. With all the scheming and shenanigans Deborah orchestrated to get this lifestyle, she might have to come up with a whole set of new ones to maintain it.

Lynox is Deborah’s husband who she thanks God for putting back into her life after a game of cat and mouse that defies the laws of romance. He feels that all Deborah needs is to let her hair down, maybe make some new friends and live a little. When Deborah agrees and then suspects Lynox of having an affair with the woman that he suggested she form a friendship with, will he live to regret his own advice?

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Beyond the Face of the Movies with Deborah Lassiter

Write StuffThere’s really nothing like going to the movies and being invigorated by the plot, the characters, the action sequences, and the romance. Movies do all they can to draw us in so we can live in this make-believe world for an hour or two. Hollywood spends a lot of money on making sure the films it produces brings forward the right actors, the best director, the able producer, and so many more people that make the movie seem like the spectacular feat that it is.

Sometimes they succeed and sometimes they don’t but after the show’s done, you may find yourself still in awe, in laughter, perhaps even fear because the movie did more than just tell a story — it led us to think deeper about things life. In much the same way, but way better than a film, God wants us to see the deeper principles all around us.

Join me as I chat with WPJC host of Dovetales, Deborah Lassiter as we discuss her debut release  Beyond the Face of the Movies and talk about what we should see beyond the buzz and excitement of a film as she takes biblical characters and Hollywood movies for a fun spin with a deeper tale. You can call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download stitcher on your mobile device, Or click on the link here:   Tune in!


BTFOTMHave you ever wondered why after watching a movie you are left with a residue of emotions? Perhaps after the credits have rolled off your screen, you’ve experienced a sense of peace, empowerment, exhilaration, fear or maybe a better understanding of how to deal with a personal issue you’ve struggled with.
Watching a Hollywood movie can be a bit like a brain teaser such as the Rubin Face which leaves you searching for the optical illusion and wondering whether you see the young lady or the old woman.
Many times God challenges us to go deeper than the surface of the movie, in the hope that we will discover principles that can be gleaned from beneath the excitement and buzz of the film. By juxtaposing Hollywood movies and biblical characters, the author connects the dots for the reader so that they are guided through fundamental biblical truths in order to better understand and navigate through their own life challenges on a daily basis.
What does Bruce Almighty have in common with the biblical Samson? What is Prophet Jonah doing in the Wizard of Oz instead of going down to Nineveh? Find out in this fun and feisty easy-to-read book, and while you are at it–take the time to look beyond the surface of the movie and you will sense God speaking to you in encouraging, practical and at times convicting ways.

12301657_10153729943433904_2902947770770659200_nDeborah Lassiter is an author, playwright, radio host and student as well as founder of DCL Ministries, a ministry propelling all acts of kindness ,through the fruit of the Spirit, to those in need. This ministry is for all who are not just searching to do grand gestures of God’s love ,but understand that it is in the big, and also the small random acts that Jesus dwells too. We all can make a difference immediately in our daily lives, and by our acts of kindness we just might encourage others to do the same.

20160429_110247

It’s really a shock to me that I would write Christian fiction. Really it is.  I didn’t know Christian fiction existed until about 2000 or so when I happened across a store called Family Christian Stores. I went in there and saw all of these lovely books and was hooked.

My earliest memories are of books and writing. I always knew this is what I would do. I just never thought I’d be a Christian writer or a writer who is Christian.  I grew up reading Stephen King and then when I was fourteen, I discovered my first Harlequin book under my cousin’s bed that summer and got hooked onto romance. So my first loves are horror and romance. Go figure.

When I began to take my writing seriously, I had been let go at my job back in 2010.  Now I had time on my hands. I saw the computer with my manuscript I’d let linger for ten years from the time I was 18 years old and I decided to get in published no matter what. My first book, Dark Cherub, can be classified as Christian horror. (Thanks Stevie!)  It changed everything for me. I mean, everything. I worked on my first romance series, called Sins of the Flesh and that also changed things for me. I started to do podcasting, and now I am the owner of the new PJC Media, an online broadcasting company.  Yet the love of the written word is still in my veins.

I host Christian authors worldwide on my shows.  Been doing it for three years. Over the years, I’ve become something of  diplomat. The body of Christ is already so divided by denominations and the like. I don’t want to add to that unnecessarily. I don’t mind standing up for core biblical truths but when it comes to secondary, non-essentials, I don’t get too worked up over it.

I love helping Christian authors get the word out about their works. If you want to be showcased on my show, simply email me at writestuffradio at gmail dot com. I’d be glad to have you.

ABOUT THE BOOK

tears of abraham

The first Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in American history–but the second civil war is worse.

When Texas secedes from the Union, Henry and Suzanne Wilkins are as broken as the rest of America. They are breaking up, hurting, and longing for a way to make it right. Then Henry’s clandestine counter-terror unit is ambushed and they must get home, crossing the bleeding country, hunted by the relentless and powerful Directors who will stop at nothing to prevent him from revealing the conspiracy that triggered the war. From the snow-swept slopes of the Rocky Mountains, to mangrove swamps deep in the Everglades back-country, Henry and Suzanne must protect what they love, facing terrible truths about themselves and those they trusted most. They are America–flawed and betrayed–but worth fighting for.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

seantsmith

 

Sean spent the first half of his childhood in Canada, and the second, warmer portion in Miami, learning to love reading science fiction and literature from his father, a poet and author who got rid of the family television and instead read out loud every night… Asimov, Niven, Silverberg, and Herbert replaced The Dukes of Hazzard, and while it was awkward then, it was wonderful in retrospect.

He majored in Political Science at the University of Florida with every intention of entering law school. Writing took hold then, and he decided that he’d rather chase a dream than die with regrets. He moved to Nashville. where he wrote songs for a decade, and learned to write a bit better with the help of great mentors Jon Robin and Ralph Murphy

It’s been a joyous, magic, tragic, and ultimately rewarding journey. He’s hiked much of the Appalachian Trail, slid down glaciers in the Rocky Mountains, gotten very lost in the Everglades back-country, and fished for Marlin in the Gulf Stream. He dove wrecks in the Caribbean, speared fish with sharks and blood in the water, and drank beer in foreign ports with fellow vagabonds, troubadours, and misfits. He lost his faith and love, yet thankfully they found him again.

He started writing fiction after moving back to Florida, and now relishes the broader canvas a novel affords, though he”s still known to pick up his guitar from time to time. He considers being a dad the best thing about him, for his children make him a better man. The love of his wife, who also happens to be his best friend and muse, inspires him to keep writing.

Sean is almost finished with his fifth novel, and already working on number six. At the same time, he is writing for an international video game developer for THE SEED, to be released in 2016 He enjoys interacting with readers, and is easy to find on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, LinkedIn, and Instagram
