Blog Tour : Snow by Katherine Hewitt

Monday, June 2, 2014

Hi guys! This is my second book tour. And it's just amazing as always. Anyway, I got  the chance to hold an interview again and of course, giveaway! 

 Today's tour is about Snow , a novel written by Katherine Hewitt. Not realy my type of reading, but sounds very interesting.

Before we go to the interview, how about checking her masterpiece first ?

How do you know, at fifteen, what love and affection really mean? Ruth learned all too soon that love is commitment, and affection has a price. But who will ultimately make the commitment, and who will pay the price?

At fifteen, Ruth thought she had her life planned out. That is until she met Luke, a charming new cadet from the local military school. After entering into a seemingly harmless teenage romance, Luke's possessive attitude and subtle remarks begin to undermine Ruth's confidence, sending her into an emotional tailspin.

A beautiful young girl is suddenly lost in a grown-up world, trying desperately to hang on to a love she thought would last forever. Shattered dreams and hopeless tears become the bricks that build walls around Ruth; yet just below her broken heart, a beautiful vessel is being formed.

Join Ruth on her wedding day, five years later, as her childhood friend helps her journey back to face the demons of her past.

And as a part of my participation in this tour, here's an interview with Miss Hewitt!

When and Why did you begin writing?
I’ve been writing poetry since I was old enough to know what a poem was. I remember in sixth grade I starting writing a suspense novel just for fun, but I didn’t get into writing as a career until about five years ago when I decided to start writing “Snow”.

What inspired you to pen your first novel?
I became pregnant at fifteen. My mom was determined that I didn’t become a statistic, so I continued my education and went on to college while raising my son. At the time of my pregnancy and when he was an infant, it was extremely difficult and on more than one occasion I thought I couldn’t do it, but I did. I want other girls, who find themselves with unwanted or unplanned pregnancies, to know that they can do it, too.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
God is listening. When people are in a crisis, they cry out to God, whether they are believers or not. I want every person who reads this book to know that God is there. He hears us and He does care. Sometimes our circumstances don’t turn out the way we want them to, but God sees the bigger picture and everything works out for the good of those who love Him. Miracles do happen when we pray. There is Hope in every situation.

What are your current projects?
I am currently working on an adult novel that deals with temptations from social media, marriage, gossip, sexuality, and alcohol abuse. I am also working on the sequel to “Snow.”

What is “Snow” about?
It’s about a young girl who gets tangled up with a possessive boyfriend and finds herself having to decide between her boyfriend and her unborn child. There are several twists that will leave you holding your breath, wondering what will happen. “Snow” deals with sexual abstinence, teenage pregnancy, abortion, date rape, dating violence, prayer, and miracles.

What was your favorite chapter or part to write?
My favorite part to write about has to be the conversations between the main character and her best friend. The best friend is a spin-off of my absolute best friend, so when I was writing I felt like I was talking to her in person.

What do you want to say to those who oppose your position?
God has given us free will. I have chosen to stand in belief of the Bible and the Lord Jesus Christ. If someone chooses a different position, that’s okay. That’s their choice. I believe that if everyone would stop being angry at other people’s difference of opinion, we’d be a much happier, better functioning nation. My heart is sad for every aborted child, and for the women who regret their decision. My hope, is that they find peace through salvation in Jesus.

How do you manage to write and be a stay at home mom of four boys?
Very sporadically! I sneak in about an hour during nap time, a couple hours after bed time, and sometimes half a day when my husband isn’t working. When it comes down to a dead line, my husband will hold down the home front while I go away for a few days of uninterrupted writing.

What is your favorite Bible passage?
Psalm 71:20-21, “Though you have made me see troubles, many bitter and severe, you will restore my life again; you will bring me up from the depths of the earth. You will increase my honor and comfort me on every side.

What did you learn from writing this book?
Never give up. Even when you’re tired and hurting. When you feel like you can’t write another word, or your heart doesn’t have room for another ache, keep pressing on.
