Bonjour, Friends ~ Welcome back to the Video Café for our last coffee break before the holiday season! I’m pleased to welcome super-chic friend and USA Today Bestselling author, Rachel Hauck – for her first time in the cafe. (As usual – stick around to the end of the coffee break for our usual #Giveaway…)
If you’re new to the Video Café, Click HERE to see what it’s all about. But if you’ve been here before, you know how it works. Grab your cuppa — let’s chat with Rachel!
BONJOUR — Welcome to the Café, dear Rachel! I might be taking my life into my hands here because I know we differ on college football loyalties, but here we go: where’s your cafe and what are you drinking today?
You are the coolest, Rachel. (#GoIrish!) Whew — now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s sneak in our devotional time first. What Scripture is ministering to you today, and why?
My heart is BURSTING over here! We are mark-up-your-Bible-sisters! Your Song of Solomon book is beautifully marked, reminding us about the distinction of Christ’s love for the bride. And we just LOVE the Word too. We’re in it, lady!
So, we know you love your Bible. What other book do you love – favorite novel for right now?
We must know – what’s up next for you? (Hint: Please tell us about THE WEDDING CHAPEL!)
So many feels…
Love the dual timelines. And zoning in on the living we do through the interruptions in life — they paint such an authentic portrait of how love can be.
We’re all friends here now, Rachel. Friends share secrets. So, can you share one with us?
Young love! Royals! Christmas…! Ah — the romance reader’s Kryptonite.
We’re loving the reveal of your writerly secrets in between sips of coffee. 🙂 Please – make it last? One more super-secret peek at what’s up next after the “next”?
Between the fact that we’re actually royal, hearing about A ROYAL CHRISTMAS WEDDING and THE WEDDING SHOP, I’m swooning. And then… I saw THIS!!!!!
Dear Rachel, you are the BEST. And I know, one day, you will join me in the bliss of fandom when we can get you into Irish green. (#GoIrish!) Until then, I remain yours most dedicated in friendship and fellowship. We’d love to have you back in the cafe one day soon. (And — I get a hug at next year’s ACFW conference!)
Rachel Hauck is a former corporate grinder who realized she preferred facing the blank pages of her next novel rather than getting a regular paycheck.
A USA Today bestselling author, she’s an Ohio State grad and avid football fan. She considers herself a second-rate arm chair quarterback. She loves sandwiches and chips, Diet Coke (decaf please) and believes Matthew’s final proposal to Mary in Downton Abbey Series 2 is the most romantic scene on television. (Kristy Cambron agrees.)
She lives in central Florida with her husband and their pets; a mini schnauzer, Miss Indpendent, and Hepzibah, a stray cat who wandered into their backyard.
Rachel is pleased to offer a copy of The Wedding Chapel to one reader in the cafe. This Giveaway is for US residents only, and runs from 11/20/15 – 11/25/15. Enter by adding a comment to answer this question (during the giveaway dates):
- Rachel talked about her big LOVE for God’s Word. How do you prefer to spend time in the Word — devotions, daily prayer, verse mapping (like me!), or another method of study?
We’ll draw one name and announce the winner on this post right after the Thanksgiving holiday. (Gobble, gobble!) And stick around, because we’re bound to have a holiday giveaway or two in the Café through the end of the year. And in the meantime, stop by the Freebies & Fun page on my website — I’ll keep you up-to-date on the active #Giveaways we have running all the time!
With JOY & coffee talk,
