WIPpet Wednesday: "Anything But Tragedy"

Happy Wednesday, everybody. I hope you're all having good week. Unfortunately, my Wednesday
will consist of taking my six-year-old to an orthopedic doctor. Looks like the poor guy might have broken his back after falling off a ten-foot climbing wall. The good news is that he hasn't been in much pain, and none of the treatments the pediatrician mentioned were invasive at all. Blessings of youth, I guess.

For today's WIPpet, I'm excited, and admittedly a little bit nervous, to share my blurb from Torn Asunder. It's still a work in progress (which is why it qualifies for WIPpet Wednesday), but it does feel exciting to draft it now as opposed to the day I upload the whole book to KDP. I haven't gotten the impression that any of my WIPpet friends are inherently offended by Christian fiction, however  just so you know Torn Asunder definitely has a stronger Christian theme than my other North Korean novels. It's also way more romantic. I'm still not totally sure how I feel about that. Let's hope Regi doesn't gag when she betas for me.

Anyway, WIPpet posts are supposed to somehow corresponds to the date, and so I am giving you the following three-paragraph blurb in honor of October 8, because I drafted the blurb in October. (See what I did there?)


They gave up a lifetime together to serve in a land that wants them dead.

When Hannah and Simon sneak back into their North Korean homeland, they are both ready to die for the sake of the gospel. But can they really sacrifice their relationship like their mission requires? And if they can't, will their devotion to one another pose an even greater threat than the National Security Agency and its network of spies, secret police, and informants?

On the most hostile mission field in the world, can a love like theirs end in anything but tragedy?


Blog Love: Huge thanks to K L Schwengel for hosting the WIPpet Wednesday blog hop, where authors post snippets from the current Works In Progress.

Random Fact: My son Silas, the same one who is going to see the doctor today, has now gone eighteen months without using his feeding tube. Way to go, Silas!
