    We used to be connected on ShoutLife ages ago, and then I kinda lost track of you. Now I know why. Oh, man, Rachel. What a rough road. So glad to see you here today and get this chance to catch up with your creative journey.

    Interesting. I would have liked more information on the plot of Winter Rose, though. Even the summery at Amazon was less than informative, but I downloaded it anway.  It seems to have potental

  3. I don’t think this info is available anywhere, but Rachel did the art work for the cover of Winter Rose. So when she says in her bio “writer and artist” she ain’t kiddin’ ! 😉

    Great to see you, C.L! It’s been an exciting journey for sure!
    Galadriel: I didn’t want the post to feel like I was pumping my book, so I didn’t put a big chunk of info about it in there. But you can read a more thorough summary in this review here: http://literallyjen.com/2012/01/22/winter-rose-by-rachel-a-marks/
    As well as in a few of the Amazon reviews. 🙂 Hope that helped!
    Thanks Becky! *hugs*

  5. Thank you for sharing your story! I downloaded the book. That is such a beautiful cover! Well done.

  6. Great real story, Rachel. Can’t wait to read the one you wrote 🙂

    This hit the spot!  I’m was in a similar place with a manuscript–I was so set on Getting It Completely Done that I lost all joy in actually writing it.  It took prayer and God-prodding to realize I actually sort of hated it, and I was mad about feeling that way.  I’ve since taken a hiatus to focus on short stories.  Thanks for sharing.  It’s incredible what a hold God has on our lives!

    Glad you’re making progress, Rachel. Winter Rose was a compelling story–hooked me in and wouldn’t turn me loose.

What do you think?
