God’s Love and Forgiveness or Trying to be Good on Your Own

Posted on

Michelle Lynn Brown deals with something the world does not even blink an eye over anymore, premarital sex and the sin it is that separates a person from God’s love and forgiveness.

Renee Winters has lived under the shadow of her mother’s sinful life starting with her own conception. When her mother’s foster parents and friends turned their backs on Renee’s mother’s pregnancy, she turned from God to alcohol and prostitution to support herself and her baby, Renee. Now eighteen, Renee, struggles to keep herself pure and acceptable to God. The only person who does not have issues with her, is Ian McKnight. Ian has a reputation of being a ‘Bad’ boy. But he has never treated Renee with anything but respect in fact he calls her his beautiful angel.
After having been nearly sexually assaulted by one of her mother’s johns, Renee seeks comfort from the only one who can relate to what she is going through, Ian.
Only comfort turns to something they were not ready to handle. Ian realizes this as he watches Renee sleeping. Ian leaves, running away to army to prevent  him from witnessing the hatred he knew in his heart Renee would have when she woke and had time to allow things to sink in of what they had done. Renee awakes to find Ian gone and her mother’s words comes home to haunt her, that Renee was just like her and all men were after just one thing. Renee vows to God this will never happen again and she would never become her mother.
Eight years later, Renee is the worship leader, and leader of their Church group, ‘Brides for Christ’. In Renee’s eyes, she has kept her vow to God and is a good Christian woman living for God. However Christ uses her past to show Renee that she is trying to be a Christian on her own strength instead of surrendering all of her life and not just part of it for His forgiveness and healing by bringing Ian McKnight back into her life.
Now Renee must decide how to deal with the hidden sins of her past or continue to live in denial and the affection of a good Christian man, Elliot.

Rewrite of Healer of Surflex

Posted on

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00009]

I am re-editing my fantasy ‘Healer of Surflex’. My second editor is done with edits of Healer and I wanted to share a little of the email she sent with it. :

I kind of feel sad that I have finished with Healer. The characters have all become “part of my family” and I have enjoyed getting to know them better and better as I edited the book. I know that I said earlier how I felt that there maybe should have been a little bit more (sort of a closure between Kerlia and Terian), but now I feel that Healer of Surflex ended just as it should have.

You asked before if there was any part that I did not like or that did not go with the story, I will say that there were a few places where I thought that a word or part of a sentence wasn’t necessary to “grow” the story, but they didn’t/don’t stand out enough for me to have commented on them during the editing process. The only way I would even mention them, is if you were to say that you had to “limit” the number of words, pages, chapters, etc. in order to publish the book.

I must say, however, that I think that Healer is amazing. You definitely have a talent for “making up stories” – all of the details and all of the conversations between characters. All I can say is, WOW! I also have to say that the pictures that come to mind when reading certain passages are so very clear in each and every detail. Your book had me laughing out loud sometimes, and had me being sad with tears in my eyes at other times. I wanted to reach through the computer and give you a fist bump, high five, or just say “way to go, Sue” many times.
