One of the most gratifying aspects of writing and publishing a novel for me has been the response from my readers. I’m a new author with only two books published and my third scheduled to be released this year—it still gives me goose bumps when I read a comment or receive an email from a reader who loved one of my books. I feel humbled that they actually read my book and were touched and inspired by the story. That inspires me to continue writing.

Picture
If no one read my books, who would I be writing for? Yes, it is still gratifying to finish a novel and publish it, but my end goal is to write life changing stories that affect readers’ lives with a positive impact. I’m compelled to write and know that God has given me the stories that I share with others. 

Readers are number one in my eyes when I sit down to write. As I’m setting up the scene with description and delving into dialogue and creating compelling characters, I always have my readers in mind. What will she think about this story? Will he like the characters I create? Most importantly, will I write well enough for them to get the point of the message? 


Picture
Before I became a writer, I was first a reader—a voracious reader at that. I couldn’t get enough of books, I still can’t. However, now, I need to balance my time more between writing and reading and everything else that’s on my plate. As a reader, I know what it’s like submersing myself into a story and getting so wrapped up in it, that I can’t wait to finish and when I read the last line, I wish the author wrote more.

Now that I’m on the other side of the fence, I want to always keep that perspective of the reader’s mindset in mind when I write my stories. I write because it is my mission in life to share faith-filled stories and because I love to write—but I will always write for my readers and hope to bring a smile to their faces and encouragement to their spirits. For all the readers out there, you have my undying gratitude for continuing to devour books and keeping the love of reading alive and well. 


In gratitude for all of the readers, anyone who comments on this blog post and shares why they love to read, will be entered into a drawing to receive an eBook copy of my book, Mr. Shipley's Governess.

Sebastian leaned against the doorframe of the library, amused that Sophie continued reading, oblivious to his intrusion.  He watched her scrunch up her face in consternation, engrossed in the book.  “So, who do you like better, me or Mr. Knightly?”  He heard her sharp intake of breath.  She nearly dropped the book as she turned to look at her intruder.

“Definitely, that would be Mr. Knightly; he doesn’t have the habit of sneaking up on me.”

Sebastian sauntered into the room and sat in the chair opposite her.  “Yes, he’s so charming.  I hope to someday be like him.”

“Hey, don’t make fun.  He is the epitome of the perfect gentleman.”

“Actually, I’m serious.”

“What do you mean?”

“I’ve read the same book as you.  It must be a coincidence.”

Sophie smiled.  “Really…you’re just trying to get on my good side.”

He leaned forward in mock surprise.  “Huh, I thought I was on your good side already.”

“That depends on my mood.”

“I see.  You’re all about a woman’s prerogative.”

“Yes, I live by that rule.”

He played along, enjoying the playful banter.  “Oh, so you’re one of those.”

“You’d better believe it.  It’s my prerogative to change my mind whenever I want.”

He fluidly maneuvered his way to the ottoman where her feet rested and he sat down.  “I hope you don’t change your mind about me.”

“Well, that all depends on you.”

“I’d better be on my best behavior then.”

Sophie got up quickly and before he realized it, she walked across the room to the bookshelf.  “So, you really read Emma, too.  That’s still surprising and sweet.”

He followed her.  “You’re avoiding any serious conversation, young lady.”

She moved away, running her finger along the spines of the books.  He kept following, backing her into a corner.  She leaned her hands against the windowsill and backed up as far as possible.  She laughed nervously.  “So, tell me again why you interrupted me.”

“I did it because I’ve wanted to do this for a long time now.”  He cupped her face, tracing the outline of her lips with his thumb.  Then he lowered his mouth to hers and kissed her gently, at first, but soon his fervor matched hers.  She put her arms around his neck and moved in closer.  Finally, they pulled away from each other, both breathless.  “I…I’m sorry.”

She touched his cheek.  “Don’t be.  I’ve wanted you to do that for a long time, too.”

He squeezed her hand. “I should get back to work.  David’s going to wonder what happened to me.”

Sophie gave him a flirty smile. “Oh, I’m sure he knows.”

“Now try not to compare me too much to Mr. Knightly because there’s no contest, really.”

As he walked out of the room, he still felt the warmth of her lips on his and the softness of her body in his arms.  He chided himself.  “Shake it off, man.”  Then he walked down the hall in search of his brother.


 
 
Glad it's Friday...time for another Reader's Corner Interview. Hope you're enjoying the Reader's Corner on The Mustard Seed. If you're interested in participating, please contact me. 

Picture
Let's meet our reader today...

Lorianne Lynch is a wife and mother of one child, a six year old daughter. She is also a paralegal. Her parents instilled in her the love of reading in childhood and she is passing that love on to her child. She is rarely bored because she is surrounded by books.

Love that you are rarely bored because you're surrounded by books. I totally relate to that statement. So, on a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being the highest) how much of an avid reader are you? 

10

What kind of books do you like to read? 


I like all kinds of books, fiction and non-fiction, but I really enjoy a good mystery or thriller.

Always love a good mystery novel. Do you like reading multiple genres or do you stick to only romance or mystery etc.? 


I will read anything if it’s good and interests me.

Interesting is definitely the key for me...if a book doesn't catch my interest right away, I'm not so keen on reading it. Why do you like to read?  


To immerse myself in another world and make new friends with the characters. 

Great answer...totally agree with that.  Once you read a book, do you read it over again? 

Yes, many, many times.

Most contemporary books I've read, I haven't re-read. Although, the classics I love, I've read those over and over again. 


Picture
Do you like to browse books in the bookstore or do you like to shop online? 

I love going to bookstores and libraries. If I know exactly what I want then I will go online.

Love browsing book stores. I remember taking many trips to the library as a child. Do you prefer eBooks or print books? 


I’ve recently fallen in love with eBooks.

Me too. Do you have an ereader? Which one and why do you like it? 


Yes.  I have a Kindle. I like the fact that the screen is non-glare and that reading it is like reading a book. It’s very lightweight and I take it everywhere.

Agree with those answers. Recently got a Kindle and love it. Take it everywhere with me.


Picture
Who is your favorite contemporary author? 

Too many to name. If I have to pick just one it would be Stephen King. I’ve never been disappointed by him.

Do you have a favorite author of classic literature? 


I guess it depends on the definition of classic but I like the Bronte’s.

Love the Bronte's and Jane Austen. As a child, did you have a favorite book? 


Yes. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

What is your most favorite book and if you had to pick actors to play the parts of the characters, which actors would you pick? 


The Diary of Anne Frank. I’ve read it at least once a year since I first read it as a pre-teen. I don’t think any actors can adequately portray the people in that book, although it’s been tried.

What books are currently on your reading list?

Under the Dome- Stephen King, Frankenstein Series by Dean Koontz and the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child.

Are there any other avid readers in your family?

Yes, all of us. We learned our love of reading from our parents.

My mom passed on her love of reading to me and my brothers and sisters. So glad she did. Of all the classics you’ve ever read which book is your favorite?

The Catcher in the Rye.


Picture
What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to ask an author? 

How does it feel to have a character die?

Sounds crazy, but it's hard. I actually got attached to one character in my book that I didn't want to kill her off as originally planned so I killed off another character. In my current WIP, it was also sad for me when another character died, but it was part of the story and needed to happen. Have you ever gone to a book signing before? 


No.

Have you ever wondered what an author was thinking in regard to where he or she generates story ideas etc.? 


Yes, especially when reading a good thriller.

Which do you prefer in a book: dialogue or prose or do you like a good combination of both? 


I like a good mix but too much prose is just filler and I tend to skim ahead.

Couldn't agree more. I like a good balance. Do you think characters’ names are important? 


Not really, some of the most memorable characters have commonplace names that became larger than life because of the story.

What about characters’ physical descriptions? Do you like specifics or would you rather leave most of it up to your imagination? 


I prefer to imagine what the person looks like.

Happy endings or endings true to life, which do you prefer? 


True to life.

I like realistic stories, but I am a sucker for the romantic happy endings. Have you ever thought about writing a book? 


Yes, I’ve actually started a few times.

That's great. When you finish your novel, I'll have you over on the blog for an interview. What book do you think should absolutely be made into a movie? 


Hard question because I’m always disappointed by movie adaptations.

Have you seen any movies based on books and thought the book was better? 


Yes, most books are better than the movie. 

Lorianne, thank you so much for being here today. I really enjoyed chatting with you. 

To participate in the Reader's Corner, please send me an email. We hope you stick around for a bit today to chat with us. Thanks and have a great weekend!

 
 
Welcome to another Friday's Reader's Corner at The Mustard Seed. Come meet my guest.

Name: Inspired Kathy
Blog: http://iamareadernotawriter.blogspot.com
Twitter: http://twitter.com/toobusyreading

I'm a Stay at Home mom who loves to read. I have an elementary education degree from BYU. Children's Literature was my favorite class. I read from a variety of genres but favor fairy tales, fantasy and clean romance. 

Picture
On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being the highest) how much of an avid reader are you? 

In the past it would have been a 10 but life has got in the way of reading lately so I'd say a 6 or 7 currently.

Definitely agree...life can get so busy at times. I can't read as much as I'd like to either. Do you prefer eBooks or print books?  

I prefer print but I'm about to make the transition to ebooks.

I'm a Kindle fan now. Made the plunge and love it! Do you have an ereader? Which one and why do you like it?  

I just ordered a Kindle yesterday.  My friend brought her Kindle over to download a netgalley book for us to read and it was so easy to use I decided I really wanted one.  

You'll love your Kindle! What books are on your summer reading list for those lazy days at the beach or relaxing in a hammock?  

Next up is The Iron Knight - I downloaded it on Netgalley but hate reading on the computer (wanting to read it was enough motivation to buy a Kindle).  Then I've got a stack of books I owe authors reviews on so I'll tackle those.


Picture
I'm a member of Netgalley also. I saw info on The Iron Knight...on my TBR list. Do you have a favorite author of classic literature? 

Definitely Jane Austen

She's my favorite! Of all the classics you’ve ever read which book is your favorite?  

Jane Eyre is pretty high up on the list along with Pride & Prejudice.

I like Pride & Prejudice and also Sense & Sensibility. Once you read a book, do you read it over again?  

Occasionally I do reread a book - I've reread all of Jane Austen's books, Jane Eyre, The Twilight Series, The Book of Mormon and a handful of others.  My to read list is so long I usually don't revisit a book unless it's been a really long time since I read it or I really loved it.

Happy endings or endings true to life, which do you prefer? 

Happy endings!


Picture
Have you ever gone to a book signing? 

The only one I've ever made a special trip to attend was for The Host by Stephenie Meyer - I had the opportunity to go to breakfast with her and just couldn't pass up that chance.  Other than that I've a sucker for authors who are sitting at the tables at Costco or other book stores so I usually stop and visit and then buy their book.

Very neat opportunity. Nice. Have you ever thought about writing a book?  

No!  As my blog title states - I am a reader, not a writer - I do not enjoy writing.

Do you like to browse books in the bookstore or do you like to shop online? 

I rarely buy from an actual bookstore but I love to browse.  I usually buy off Amazon.com

Me, too. I used to shop at bookstores, but now I mainly shop from Amazon and now just through the Kindle store online through Amazon. Do you like reading multiple genres or do you stick to only romance or mystery etc.?  

I read multiple genres but prefer young adult, fantasy, fairy tale retellings and clean romance.

Have you seen any movies based on books and thought the book was better?  

I can't think of any movie I've seen that was better than the book.  I'm sure there are a few out there but I've not come across them. Books are better!

Love that...yes, "books are better..." Thank you so much for stopping by. I enjoyed chatting with you. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend! We'd love to hear your views on any of these questions. 

 
 
Welcome back to another Friday Reader's Corner. Today I interviewed my sister. If you love to read and want to be interviewed on The Mustard Seed, contact me. I'd love to hear from you. 

Picture
Meet my sister, Lori Kerzmann

I am so proud of my sister—the published author Joanne Kerzmann-Troppello. I am a true romantic at heart. I love happy endings! I dream of eventually becoming a published author when I finally sit down and finish one of my deserted manuscripts. For now, I’m content being a reader!

I can't wait until the day we can write a book together. That's going to be fun. 

You can connect with my sister on facebook:http://www.facebook.com/lori.kerzmann

So, let's get started with this interview. On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being the highest) how much of an avid reader are you? 

Probably an 6-7, since I don’t have a lot of time to read right now, but I LOVE reading! And I can’t wait to get back into it more often.

What kind of books do you like to read?

Romance, especially historical romance, mysteries, classics, fiction.

My favs are contemporary romance and romantic suspense, but I do love a good historical romance every now and then. So why do you like to read?

It’s an escape from the real world drama of our lives. Sometimes the book is more of a calm escape for me, a stress-reliever from my crazy, hectic life. Other times, the book is full of adventure, epic love, and intensive drama, and this is a mental escape of a different kind, like living vicariously through the characters.

Love that answer. Totally agree. Do you prefer eBooks or print books?

Print books are classic, so they still have a special place in my heart, but eBooks are more convenient. I’m not partial. I also like to listen to books on CD during my long commute to and from work.

Do you have an ereader? Which one and why do you like it?

Not yet, maybe one of these years! I would like an iPad because I like that I can use it for other functions as well.

An iPad sounds nice. Maybe one of these days I'll get one too. For now, I love my Kindle, though. 


Picture
Who is your favorite contemporary author?

My sister Joanne Kerzmann-Troppello, of course!!! And Diana Galbadon comes in second. I also like Agatha Christie.

Thanks, Sis. You are one of my biggest fans. I agree and have you to thank for introducing me to Diana Galbadon's books. Love them, too. Do you have a favorite author of classic literature?

Jane Austen and Shakespeare

Big fan of Austen's works, too. Once you read a book, do you read it over again?

Eventually, yes. Not right away. I like when you can pick up a book after 10 years and re-read it. You are a changed person because of what you have gone through personally during those 10 years, so I feel that you see and absorb different things from the book that next time around.

I don't usually re-read the contemporary books I've read...usually only read the classics again. Which do you prefer in a book: dialogue or prose or do you like a good combination of both?

I like both, but when I write, I prefer to write dialogue. As a reader though, I enjoy a good combination of both, a good balance.

I agree, a good balance is nice. As a child, did you have a favorite book?

The Digging-est Dog, The Mandie series by Lois Gladys Leppard, The Nancy Drew series, The Hawk and the Jewel by Lori Wick, The Secret of the Rose series and The Russians series by Michael Phillips & Judith Pella, Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon

I remember all of those, especially how much you loved the Mandie series. What is your most favorite book and if you had to pick actors to play the parts of the characters, which actors would you pick?

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. For Claire, I’d pick Claire Forlani. For Jamie, I’d pick Gerard Butler. That would definitely become my favorite movie! What an epic love story!!

That would definitely be a great movie and good choice of actors. 


Picture
Are there any other avid readers in your family?

Oh yeah! My sister and I get our love of reading from our mom, Paula.

Yes, we have mom to thank for cultivating a love of reading in our lives. Of all the classics you’ve ever read which book is your favorite?

Pride and Prejudice
  

On the top of my list, too. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to ask an author?

How do you find time to finish your books?
  

Write each day, even if it's only a little bit. Have you ever gone to a book signing before?

No, but I’m looking forward to planning and going to many of my sister’s book signings/book release parties!!!

Thanks, Sis. Do you think characters’ names are important?

Yes, I am a firm believer that names somewhat mold who you are. In the Bible, this was very significant. It’s not so much anymore, but I still think the names are important. What if the vampire in Twilight was called Ed or Eddie? It just doesn’t conjure up the same romantic ideas and emotions as Edward.

Very true. What about characters’ physical descriptions? Do you like specifics or would you rather leave most of it up to your imagination?

I am a very visual person. I like to imagine and picture things, so I definitely like when authors give descriptions of the character. I feel that they become more alive when I can picture them then them just being non-descript. What throws readers off is when the book is turned into a movie or TV series, and they choose someone who is completely NOT what you pictured all along!


Picture
Happy endings or endings true to life, which do you prefer?

That’s an easy one…happy endings! I will read the occasional book that doesn’t end so happy, but it leaves me so sad, like I wish I could change things. I prefer happy endings in both books AND in real life!!

Me too. I don't like sad endings. Have you ever thought about writing a book?

Oh yes!! I’ve started about 5 on paper, and about another 8 in my head!! I just need to find the time to see 1 of them through to completion. But I absolutely want to write books. I love writing and creating characters and their stories, and I would love to share that with others.

Well, I will be your biggest fan. What book do you think should absolutely be made into a movie?

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (see casting above), and Mr. Shipley’s Governess by my sister, Joanne Kerzmann-Tropppello. Also, The Hawk and The Jewel by Lori Wick—I would cast Jeremy Northam as Brandon and Blake Lively as Sunny (with her red hair).

Jeremy Northam is who I would like to play the part of Mr. Shipley. Have you seen any movies based on books and thought the book was better?

I do like to see books come to life in movies or on TV, but one book that I thought was way better than the movie was The Other Boleyn Girl. I think that was just because the book was so long, so they had to leave a lot out. That may have been better as a mini-series or TV series instead of a two hour movie.

I saw the movie, but didn't read that book. I've heard the same thing from a few other people. Name your all-time favorite romantic hero and his heroine?

Easy one—James (Jamie) Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser and the love of his life—Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser (from the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon). Also, Brandon and Sunny from The Hawk and The Jewel by Lori Wick.

Thank you, Sis, for stopping by today to be interviewed. Had fun chatting and I look forward to the day when I'll be interviewing you after your book comes out!

Any readers out there want to be interviewed...let me know. Have a great weekend!

 
 
Welcome back to my Reader's Corner. Today I am interviewing my husband, John. Glad that you joined us and hope you can stick around for a while to chat with us.

Picture
Thank you for letting me interview you, today, honey. So, what kind of books do you like to read? 

I like to read faction and fantasy / sci-fi and also political books. 

I like faction but not too excited about fantasy and science fiction. Who is your favorite contemporary author? 


That would be Glenn Beck. I just started reading his new faction book, The Overton Window.

That's one I'd like to read, too. Do you have a favorite author of classic literature? 


Yes, J.R.R. Tolkien.

I only read The Hobbit but not his other works. Why do you like to read? 


I read Fantasy and sci-fi to get in to another world. With The Hobbit, I couldn’t put the book down. I like books that are detailed.

As a child, did you have a favorite book? 


The Hobbit was my favorite book. 


Picture
Do you prefer eBooks or print books?

I prefer eBooks. 

Me, too. So, even though I know the answer to this one already, do you have an ereader? Which one and why do you like it? 

Just got a Kindle. I like it because you can store so many books on it and there’s no glare if you’re reading it in the sun. I like the Kindle cover with the light that does not need a battery but charges while the Kindle is on and the screen looks like you're reading a page from a book. The Kindle is light and not heavy to hold. Also, if I download a book, you can also put it on your Kindle, too since we have the same account. 

Couldn't agree more. As you know, I did not think I was going to like eBooks, but now that I have a Kindle, I've been "Kindle-fied." Do you like to browse books in the bookstore or do you like to shop online? 


Now that I have a Kindle, I shop online.

It is so great to be able to download a book so quickly and be able to take your vast library with you.


Picture
Once you read a book, do you read it over again? 

I haven’t done that yet, except reading the Bible over again.

I don't usually read books over again either, except for my favorites by Austen and some other classics. What books are on your summer reading list for those lazy days at the beach or relaxing in a hammock? 


Your book, honey. The Overton Window and The Original Argument.

BTW, I wish I could jump into that photo right now and read in that hammock. I still think it's so sweet that you are reading my book, even though you're not into reading romance novels. Thanks, honey! Are there any other avid readers in your family? 


That would be You and your mom. My dad also reads a lot of political books. 

What’s one thing you've always wanted to ask an author? 


Well, I’m married to one, so I can ask questions any time.

And that you, do! Have you ever gone to a book signing before (other than to mine)? 


No, just to yours. 

Have you ever wondered what an author was thinking in regard to where he or she generates story ideas etc.? 


Yes, I’ve wondered that, especially how Tolkien made up his own new world and unique language in The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Series.


Picture
What book do you think should absolutely be made into a movie? 

The Overton Window should be made into a movie.

I haven't yet read the book, but I agree that it should be made into a movie. I like the premise of combining fact + fiction in the book. Have you seen any movies based on books and thought the book was better? 


The Lord of the Rings movies was good but I wished they had more details on the hobbits’ lives. When they released the extended versions on DVD, they did justice to what was missing (about 30 minutes added).

Name your all-time favorite romantic hero and heroine? 


Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara from Gone With the Wind.

I love how you love that movie. I still can't believe that I never took the time to watch it until you asked me to watch it with you. I haven't read the novel, but it's on my TBR list. Which do you prefer in a book: dialogue or prose or do you like a good combination of both? 

I like a good combination of both to make a book flow well.

Do you think characters’ names are important? 


Yes because if you have a unique name and it stands out, it makes the book better.

What about characters’ physical descriptions? Do you like specifics or would you rather leave most of it up to your imagination? 


I like a lot of details but not overboard. There needs to be a balance.

OK, happy endings or endings true to life, which do you prefer? 


In fantasy books, I like how good usually wins over evil even though some characters get killed off. However, I also like to read realistic books, like The Overton Window.

Thanks, honey for stopping by The Mustard Seed today! 


If you would like to be interviewed in my next Reader's Corner, feel free to contact me. Have a great weekend!

    DISCLAIMER: Book Reviews

    In accordance with FTC Guidelines for blogging & endorsements, I want to post this disclaimer. From time to time, I do purchase and review some novels. However, most of the novels I review are given to me as a complimentary review copy by the author or publisher. I do not receive  monetary compensation for the reviews I complete.
