In (hopefully) May, I will be releasing Entertaining Angels Book Two, Delivered by Angels. Delivered by Angels focuses on a young girl who self-harms to escape the pain of living her life. You will see your favorite characters back, including Zach, Mads and Chase, but you’ll be introduced to new ones as well.
Here’s what it’s about:
Determined to escape her abusive father and drunken mother, Lexi Johnson turns to the blade to numb her pain, but it isn’t enough to end her misery. She’s convinced that not even God could save her now.
Roxy Taylor is the new girl in town, and Lexi doesn’t trust her, especially when she teams up with DJ Tucker to try and break down the barriers that Lexi has put in place.
Little does Lexi know, there are greater forces battling for her life, and as Lexi begins to open up to both Roxy and DJ, she’ll see that she isn’t alone in this world.
In the heart-pounding sequel to Entertaining Angels, everyone’s favorite angel, Zach Taylor, is back, and he’s there to make sure that Madison and Chase Sanders are on the path that God has chosen for them, a path that could deliver Lexi from the demons who want her soul.
As you may know, my Entertaining Angels books focus on teens who need help in some form or fashion. Book one is about overcoming self-esteem and eating disorders, and book two focuses on suicide, depression, and self-harm while book 1.5 focused on forgiveness.
While I’ve never personally self-harmed, attempted suicide, or have been clinically depressed, it’s an important topic for me to broach because I know people who have. I know that it’s a difficult place to be in, and I want to help in any way that I can. And God wants you to know that you’re not alone in your battles. This is why Delivered by Angels was written.
When God laid this book on my heart, I felt unqualified because I’d never personally experienced it. I didn’t want people to think that I was writing about something I didn’t understand, but God always qualifies the unqualified, and Delivered by Angels was created.
I’ve broached the topics the best that I can, and I have heard back from actual readers who have been self-harmers or suicidal telling me that the way that I handled the subject was how it truly was. And after writing the book, my eyes have been opened, and I want to bring light to the darkness that is depression, suicide, and self-harm.
Of course, each of my Entertaining Angels books are, in fact, Christian novels, and they deal with demons vs angels, Satan vs God, evil vs good, but depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts happen to Christians and those who don’t identify as Christian.
But there’s one thing that I realized while writing this book, whether you’re a Christian or not, you are not alone, and that’s why I am opening my blog up to bloggers, readers, and authors who have dealt with depression, suicidal thoughts, or self-harm or have helped others through it. If you have a story, if you want to shed light on the darkness and help others realize that they aren’t alone, this is your chance. If you prefer to remain anonymous, we can certainly make that work!
From April 1 – April 30, I will be posting guest posts on my blog, here about how you or someone you know has struggled with any of the above. #youarenotalone, and together we can rise above the stigmas and overcome the darkness.
Please sign up below.
I will also be posting weekly updates about the blog posts through my newsletter which you can sign-up for on my website.
