Lindi Peterson's "Her Best Catch"
Title: Her Best Catch
Publisher: Bell Bridge Books
Cover blurb: Allison Doll's mother is rebelliously turning fifty, her two best friends have started dating and a gorgeous injured relief pitcher named Ashton Boyd has joined her Sunday school class, rocking her world into confusion, heartache and temptation, places she hasn't visited in a long time, much less all at once.
But with the help of family, old friends she really hasn't lost, a new friend she really can count on, and God, she begins to find out whether she'll always be a girl waiting for life to happen or a woman who's ready to commit to her best catch.
1) How did this story come to you?
After reading Judy Bauer and Kristin Billerbeck I wanted to write a novel with those tones. I played around with a couple of ideas and came up with the 3 friends and two start dating leaving my heroine feeling out in the cold.
2) Tell us about the journey to getting this book published.
My manuscript was titled Girl in Waiting. It was a finalist and winner in some writing contests. It did get rejected as well by publishers. But Bell Bridge books read it and wanted to publish it.
3) Tell me three things about yourself that would surprise your readers.
I met my husband in a bowling alley, I work as an accountant at my day job and I like NASCAR.
4) What are you working on now and what's next for you?
I’ve sold a second book to Bell Bridge Books. Summer Song will be out in Spring 2012. I’m working on a three book series now set in coastal Florida where 3 Georgia women relocate.
5) Parting comments?
Thank you for having me here. I enjoy writing and I hope that the passion I have for it comes across to the reader as they are reading. I want to tell people about the love of Jesus and make people smile.
