WELCOME to the Video Café!
I am so happy to welcome an author friend back for her 2nd time in the Café— New York Times® best-selling author Terri Blackstock! With over 6 million books sold worldwide, you might have one of her books on your coffee table or TBR pile at this very moment. And since we had such fun with the coffee and book talk in our last visit, Terri’s stopped by to share her morning cuppa with us again.
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. Let’s have a much-needed coffee break!
Bonjour, Terri — Welcome back to the Café, my friend! You know the drill by now, so we’re going to jump right in. Where’s your cafe (please say someplace warm!) and just what are you drinking today?
A cold drink, a cozy fire and some book talk? You’ve got the perfect spot all picked out! We’d love to add in a devotion to our time together. Can you share what Scripture is really ministering to you right now, and why?
This is coffee talk between friends, so can I be real with you for a moment? Our family actually wanted to say goodbye to 2015 as well. It’s been a tough time for not just us, but quite a few sisters out there in my circle of friends and church family. Troubles are universal, aren’t they? So I happen to LOVE that the birth of your grandchild (Oh my – CONGRATS!) came at a time when you could symbolically move into 2016 with such hope and wonderful expectation. How awesome is that?!
We’re excited about your new release this year too, Terri. Can you share more about If I Run? (By the way — totally in love with that cover art. WOW!)
A female fugitive — how intriguing! It reminds me of a character on LOST (my favorite TV show), Kate Austin, who is running from the law as well. (We’re going to have to read about Casey’s story to get the full story, but alas – Ms. Austin WAS guilty.)
Since our coffee break time together is almost up, we want to end with some laughs. Can you share a most embarrassing author moment with us? (Do you even have them? I need to know the answer to this question for, um… research for a friend.) 🙂
What a moment! Wow. It’s never easy to be humbled, but I love that you saw God working through that experience. You’re a great witness to us all that it’s about Him and what He does through us – not what accolades we have in our own name.
Thanks again for visiting, Terri. It’s always a pleasure to get to spend time chatting with you! Do come back with your next release – we’re going to want to hear what’s happening with you throughout the year ahead. Warm hugs, my friend!
Terri Blackstock is a New York Times® best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.
Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
