Author Robin Caroll - BAYOU BETRAYAL - Free Book

One of my favorite authors, and a good friend, is back with us today. Welcome, Robin. By the way, I love the picture. Why did you become an author?

Because I loved telling stories. Always have, even as a young child. Just ask my momma! LOL

If you weren’t an author, what would be your dream job?

To be on the American Publishers Clearing House prize patrol! :D

If you could have lived at another time in history, what would it be and why?

Pre-Civil War . . . back in the day when ladies were ladies and men were gentlemen.

And I loved the clothing back then. What place in the United States have you not visited that you would like to?

Maine, and I haven’t a clue why!

Part of my romantic suspense, Who Am I?, is set in Maine. How about a foreign country you hope to visit?

I'm holding out for Australia. What lesson has the Lord taught you recently?

What isn’t He teaching me all the time? LOL Actually, I’ve been working through a study revolving mindset and professing positive words over our own lives.

Yes, we often speak self-defeating words. Now, Robin, tell us about the featured book.

Bayou Betrayal is the 5th book in the bayou series. It’s Deputy Gary Anderson’s story and for the first time, I wrote a heroine who was a widow. I think being separated from my husband for 4 months due to extenuating circumstances recently really helped me dig deep into that emotion of mourning the loss of our spouse with us every day.

Was is only 4 months? It seemed much longer to me, too, as I prayed for all of you. How can readers find you on the Internet?

Thank you, Robin, for spending part of this busy season with us.

Readers, you can order Bayou Betrayal by clicking this link:

And you can leave a comment for a chance to win a free copy of the book. But be sure and check back a week from Saturday to see if you won. I still have several winners I haven't heard from.

You know, I've LOVED writing the bayou series and when I turned in the 6th and final book in the series (Blackmail, releasing June 2009) it was bittersweet. I've grown to love these characters as friends and I hated to see the series end, but am glad to know everyone in Lagniappe is A-ok!

Pamela J said...

Wow, already the 5th book in this series! I've got some catching up to do, that's for sure. Are your books in this series needing to be read in the order in which they are written our can one jump back and forth till they are all read?
We have some people here who are having difficulty speaking in a positive manor, especially about themselves. Is this the study you are working on that is involving mindset and professing positive words over our own lives? I'd like to get ahold of that study and share with our ladies here.
Thanks for the interview, Lena! I'm amazed at the authors and people you know!

Hi, Pam!

Each book in the series can stand alone, but I always prefer to read a series in order.

The study we're doing is Joyce Meyer's Calm, Cool, and Collected and also her Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoes. We're loving it and watching it as a family!
