Bonjour, Friday – and welcome to the Video Café! I’m pleased to welcome author friend Karen Barnett — a repeat visitor in our café today. She’s sharing about Through the Shadows – Book 3 in The Golden Gate Chronicles historical series. (And be sure to hang around after our 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 – here comes a chat with Karen!
BONJOUR Karen — Welcome back to the café! We’re so glad you’ve come back to spend time with us. So, where’s your café today and just what are you drinking?
No nasty letters – ha ha! We don’t judge drinks here in the café. (And I have to wonder if you don’t sneak in a bit of Lego Batman video game action like I occasionally do with my boys!) 😉
We love our fellowship time here on Fridays. (It’s a day for relaxing right into the weekend, isn’t it?) At the start of what we hope will be a lazy summer weekend, could you share a devotion? What Scripture is ministering to you right now, and why?
Oh my! Our last video guest was Becky Wade – she pulled a very heartfelt message from Romans, on a very similar topic! I’m tempted to believe that some of us needed to hear this message more than once… Thank you, thank you for sharing your heart today.
We also want to hear about YOU — can you tell us about your latest release, Through the Shadows (Book 3 in The Golden Gate Chronicles series)? And… what’s up next for you, lady?
Is anyone else spilling coffee from excitement right now?! Thanks for sharing your news — I absolutely LOVE that time in history and cannot wait to hear more about your next series. Congrats!
We want to have a little fun in our time together today… Can you share your favorite movie? (P.S. I peeked ahead at the video, shouted again, and spilled a second cup of coffee. I LOVE this film too!)
We love our authors here in the café — because we get the opportunity to get to know the REAL in you. We’d love a good laugh… Can you share your funniest moment as an author?
LOVE this, Karen!
I had a similar experience. I once shouted out in a coffee shop that I would get right on the task of killing someone! (The other terrified patrons had no idea I was on the phone with my editor and we were talking about killing off a character because it worked for the story…) Those moments DO happen, don’t they? 😉
We’ve loved spending our Friday coffee time with you today. Please promise you’ll come back and visit – especially when those exciting new books release! Hugging you across the miles, friend!
