"Angels in Cowboy Boots" by Sunny Eads


Clash of The Titles
Guest post by April W Gardner



Meet previous Clash of the Titles gladiator, Sunny (SQ) Eads. She is the author of Angel in Cowboy Boots.

ABOUT THE BOOK


Two years ago Sarah Bentley lost everything except her faith and it teeters in sync with her hesitant steps. Now a chance encounter with four-year-old Matt and his uncle, Dave McKeever, brings hope for the future with a job, a wonderful new place to live, and...dare she dream?...love. Active outdoors man, Dave McKeever, battles the instant attraction between them believing God can't possibly want him to marry a woman held together by titanium joints and steel rods when he needs a capable, athletic mate. Though God's love brings them up out of the valley of pain and death, can they trust Him not to thrust them there again?




ABOUT SUNNY:

Sunny (SQ) Eads, an award winning author, was born and raised in southern Arizona. She received her higher education at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona and flew several years with American Airlines. Her love of Arizona and the mountains surrounding the state are evident in all of her novels thus far. Sunny has lived in Arizona, New York, Pennsylvania, New Mexico and Texas. Inspiration for her characters comes from the hero she married, her two lovely daughters and especially her six wonderful grandchildren.


Sunny, how long have you been writing?
SQ Eads is my pen name, I've been writing for over twenty years.


What do you love about writing in general, and about this book in particular?
I love writing because, unlike life, I can guarantee a happy ending. God seems to plant an idea in my mind, then He lets me run with it and develop the story. In the end, Jesus is the answer to all my characters' problems.

In Angels In Cowboy Boots, Matt, the four-year-old boy, holds a special place in my heart; he's a blend of my five grandsons. Sarah is far from Dave's idea of a perfect mate, but God repairs the broken and makes it ideal.
How did you arrive at this particular back cover blurb? Was it you or your publisher or a group effort?
I created the blurb.  I wanted the reader to see how all things are possible with God. In Angels In Cowboy Boots, God takes a broken life and a misguided one, intertwines the two, and creates a deeply loving couple to parent an orphaned boy.

What do you do first when you’re browsing in a book store? Back cover, front, cover, inside, first few pages? What usually entices you to buy a book by an author new to you?
When browsing in a book store, my first step is to look at the title then read the back blurb. My decision to purchase comes from that information. It hooks me or it doesn't.

Thanks, Sunny!

  10. I read the back covers first too, and because I am an English teacher, I check out the grammar and syntax of the wording there. I turned down one of the more popular series (about vampires) because there were misspelled words in the very first line of the back cover. Thanks for the chance to win one of your books.

  12. Sounds like something God would do: put people together with opposite circumstances and show them Himself through it. Sounds like a great book.
