Interview for Piedmont Island Trilogy Blog
Deborah H. Bateman-Author
Interviewed by Anne K. Albert
Tell us about your book. (Title and story blurb.)
The name of my book is: The Book or Ruth-A Story of Love and Redemption
What do you enjoy most about writing? What part do you loathe?
I enjoy studying the Bible and sharing what I learned with others. The part that I hate is when I am in a time crunch and don’t feel like I have given it my best.
When did you first realize you were destined to be a writer?
I guess you would say I stumbled upon it. I started a class to learn how to build websites and blogs, and started sharing on there. Then, I started writing articles and took an eBook course and decided to turn some of my Bible Studies into books.
Any words of advice for struggling, unpublished writers?
I would tell them not to give up, but in the meantime consider self-publishing.
What activity (cause, charity, or organization) consumes your time when you’re away from the keyboard? I keep three of my grandchildren in my home five days a week. I pick them up from two different schools. I also pick up products that are donated by our local grocery store and take them to a women’s shelter in town. I like participating in the Women on Mission group and going to Bible studies at my church when I can work it into my schedule.
Tell us about the defining moment when you felt as if you’d finally made it as an author. I am new to all of this so I don’t know if you would say I have arrived yet or not. However, there was actually two moments that moved me to tears. One was when I first downloaded my book for publication. The other was when I had the Book Launch on November 15, 2011 and found out that The Book of Ruth-A Story of Love and Redemption ended up on two bestseller lists.
The Book of Ruth- A Story of Love and Redemption is available at most online eBook retailers.
