TREACHEROUS SKIES - Elizabeth Goddard - One Free Book

Welcome, Beth. I just read this book this week. I absolutely loved it. This is the type of fast-paced suspense that keeps me turning pages. I can hardly wait for the next one. What are some of the spiritual themes you like to write about?
Forgiveness always seems to pop up, along with putting the past behind you. In Treacherous Skies, something came up that completely surprised me—my character feels like she is having to pay for the sins of her father—she’s running from a past she didn’t create.

What other books of yours are coming out soon?
HEARTS IN THE MIST (Heartsong) released in October, RIPTIDE (LIS), the sequel to TREACHEROUS SKIES, releases in July 2013, and the third book in December. Also in the fall of 2013, LOVE IN THE AIR, my hot-air balloon story releases with Heartsong Presents.

If you could spend an evening with one contemporary person (not a family member of yours), who would it be and why?
I’d love to spend an evening with my friend Lisa Harris in her home in Mozambique. We communicate frequently online and get to see each other once a year, maybe. I’d love to experience a day in her life, spend it with her where she lives.

I’m with you on that. Wouldn’t it be fun if we both could go visit her at the same time? What historical person would you like to meet (besides Jesus) and why?
Maybe Amy Carmichael—missionary to India. I read a biography about her and was amazed at her great faith and her tenacity, her ability to endure hardships in a foreign country.

How can you encourage authors who have been receiving only rejections from publishers?
I always enjoy visiting websites that list all the rejections received by big name authors. That puts everything into perspective when you realize that every single writer receives rejections.

Tell us about the featured book.
After years of peace and quiet, Maya Carpenter thinks she's safe—that her drug-lord father's world will never catch up with her. Then she's abducted and secretly stashed on a plane. And once she and the test pilot who finds her land in the Keys, the real threat begins....

Daredevil pilot Connor Jacobson is no one's hero. And this time, he's in way over his head. Yet he can't leave Maya to face danger alone. Besides, he has a few tricks up his sleeve that might keep them long as he's willing to put everything at risk, including his heart.

Please give us the first page of the book.
Belize City, BelizeMaya Carpenter glanced around the crowd in the Blue Moon Cafe, searching for her father, a man she hadn't seen since she was five years old. A man wanted in ten countries, including this one.

Though uncertain she'd recognize him, he'd said he would know her. A glance at her watch told her he was already twenty minutes late. This wasn't the type of circumstance that allowed for tardiness.

Something was wrong.

That meant he probably wasn't going to show. She'd spent a lifetime trying to escape her heritage, but he'd sounded so sincere on the phone two weeks ago—the first contact since she was five—when he shared that he was terminally ill and wanted to see her one last time.

Thanks for stopping by, everyone. So appreciate Lena and her blog to bring more exposure to Christian fiction and new authors.

On the rejections--there used to be a website or a blog article where you could read those stories. I wish I could remember what it was.

One of them is about the Wizard of Oz an how many rejections he received--it was a LOT.

Everyone gets them and knowing that helps the rest of us to keep going. :)
