Giveaway! Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck!

Welcome to Writing for Christ Rachel Hauck, it is great to have you here! So you’re a writer? What made you decide to start creating characters and story world?

Rh: I always wanted to be a writer. My dad used to tell me I was a writer. Finally, at the age of 32, the Lord called me to quit my job and in the lull time of not having a pressure packed schedule, I started writing. Christian fiction was very young and new in those days, and WW2 novels dominated the shelves. So I started an epic WW2 novel. It was rejected but I was able to actually use part of that book in Love Starts with Elle. 


What is the one title that has significantly impacted your life?

RH: Probably Song of Abraham by Ellen Gundersen Traylor. That book really made me understand I could be a friend of God’s.


If you could get a do-over when it came to learning this whole thing called writing, what would you go back and tell yourself?


RH: Don’t take it all so seriously. Yes, it’s your career and your passion but take it all in stride. There’s more to life…

5 preference questions:
Homemade or take-out?: Homemade
Email or snailmail?: Snail mail
Online shopping or Black Friday deals? : Online!
Books or movies?: Depends. :-)
Note-taker or memorization?: Memorizer but I do take notes only to discard them later.
               

Yes, I’m asking you to play favorites…which of your books is your favorite, published or unpublished? And if this is your debut novel, has your favorite been published yet?

RH: I love Softly and Tenderly for some reason. Just remains one of my favorites. I think Princess Ever After is a favorite too.

  1. I love the cover of this book! It is sooo pretty! And I loved what you said...Don't take it all so seriously. Sometimes I get obsessed with projects and have to learn to ease up and enjoy life around me in the process. ;)

    Thanks for the interview and giveaway, Casey!

  11. I love the picture of Rachel (nothing makes a woman more beautiful than a smile) and the cover of Princess Ever After. :)

    I wish I had strong memorization skills - but oftentimes I even forget what I had for dinner the night before!

  18. I do the same thing with notes - write them & toss them. It's the act of writing/reading them that grounds them into my memory. ;)

  22. Princess Ever After sounds good to me as I enjoy books about the Royals in England and also enjoy books about weddings. I do really love the color of the blue in the dress on the cover.

  25. Wow! It looks so elegant and inviting! Can't wait to read it! I feel the same way. I tend to take things seriously too, due to my OCD. I am a perfectionist & oftentimes let things get to me more than they should. There are more important things in life than the small stuff! God & family, friends, life. We can't take the carnal things with us when we go. Thank you for sharing your story with us!
