Bonjour, Friday – and welcome to the Video Café! I’m so happy to welcome Christy award-winning author (and dear friend) author Beth K. Vogt as our guest in the café today! She’s sharing about Almost Like Being in Love – her latest Destination Weddings series novel. (You’ll want to be sure to stick around after our coffee break for our usual #Giveaway…)

BONJOUR Beth — Welcome to the café! We always ask this of our guests first thing: Where’s your café today and just what are you drinking?
Bubble water! That’s sooo cute. 😉
Since we start our time together with devotions, could you share what Scripture is ministering to you right now, and why?
I just love that you’ve mentioned watchmen! I did some in-depth verse mapping on watchmen last year, and it was so inspiring. **For those friends in the cafe who wanted the site link Beth mentioned — here it is: www.swtblessings.com
We come together in this place because we want to get to know some of our favorite authors in their space — around the places and people they love. Can you share something about you that readers might not already know?
Oh, Beth! I just keep thinking: “How many of us will be brave to share after hearing how Beth did?” I speak for everyone here in the cafe when we say Thank You for opening up, being vulnerable, and handing us the mic. to do the same in our lives. (Please leave comments for Beth, sisters, if she’s inspired you to share too!) Your strength has blessed us today, Beth.
We’re here because we love great Christian fiction — and the author who write those stories. Would you share about your latest release, Almost Like Being in Love?
Can I just say (in case y’all didn’t know) — that Beth is now a Christy award-winner? Beth’s writing is beautiful and her stories layered with emotion and in-depth characters. We can’t wait to explore that in your new book, Beth, and we celebrate with you!!! Well done, friend. 🙂
Before we say goodbye in the cafe today, can you leave us with a few words?
It’s been such a blessed coffee break time we’ve been able to spend with you today. Thank you for stopping by, dear friend. And as I always say — we just hugged you! (P.S. We hope you come visit again with your next release too! We’d love to spend more time of inspiration with you.)
Beth K. Vogt is a non-fiction author and editor who said she’d never write fiction. She’s the wife of an Air Force family physician (now in solo practice) who said she’d never marry a doctor—or anyone in the military. She’s a mom of four who said she’d never have kids. Now Beth believes God’s best often waits behind the doors marked “Never.” As a contemporary romance novelist, Beth is a 2016 Christy Award winner, a 2015 RITA® Finalist and a three-time ACFW Carol Award finalist. Her 2014 novel, Somebody Like You, was one of Publisher’s Weekly’s Best Books of 2014.
In 2015, Beth introduced her destination wedding series with both an e-novella, Can’t Buy Me Love, and a novel, Crazy Little Thing Called Love. She continues the series in 2016 with the e-novella You Can’t Hurry Love (May) and the novel Almost Like Being in Love (June). A November Bride, was part of the Year of Wedding Series by Zondervan.
