Behind the Scenes: Hannah Conway’s Novel Life


Good afternoon, everyone:

ww 3Exciting news! The Wounded Warrior’s Wife is now available for purchase as an e-book!

As part of her book launch, Hannah is taking part in a blog tour featuring interviews and book reviews.

A few week’s ago I posted my review of Hannah’s debut novel, The Wounded Warrior’s Wife. To celebrate the release of her novel, Hannah is making three appearances on my blog to share her thoughts on her writing process, the story behind The Wounded Warrior’s Wife, and future projects! I recently met Hannah in person at the ACFW conference in St. Louis. She is just as loveable and wonderful in person as she is through her social media sites.  I know you all will enjoy meeting her just as much as I have!

Hannah is offering a number of great prizes throughout her blog tour book launch! If you want to win an e-copy of The Wounded Warrior’s Wife or any other of Hannah’s giveaway prizes, make sure to read these interviews, comment on my post, like my page, and leave your contact information below (your name and your email address *follow this format* [your address [at] company [dot] com]). Other prizes aside from the book include $10 Amazon gift cards, groove passes (photos!), and super-fabulous grand-prize in mid-November! Enter as many times as you’d like from the various sites Hannah will be visiting during her blog tour (full list available on her website).

In our third session, Hannah shares with us the books that have impacted her life, new authors whose books she loves, what she would do if she wasn’t author, and more. Welcome back, Hannah! We’re so pleased to have you again on A Way With Words.

www1) If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

I can’t name only one. My critique group (Shout-out ladies), have been amazing mentors. We’ve grown in our writing and friendship together. Also, Authors Joanne Bischof and Cara Putman were so kind to come alongside of me and give me pointers. They even took the time to look over my work and give honest feedback and direction. I will forever be grateful for them.

2) What book are you reading now?

I am reading Havah by Tosca Lee. TOTALLY recommend it! It’s the story of Eve and the Garden of Eden like you’ve never heard or imagined!

3) What books have most influenced your life most?

The Bible, hands down, but if we’re talking others, that will have to be Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers and The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. Those books have stuck with me for years. Even with the struggle, hurt, and trials depicted, there’s something so beautiful about these stories. Maybe it’s the redemption, forgiveness, and restoration that takes place. Whatever it is, it has never let me go.

4) Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

Yes! Dawn Crandall with The Hesitant Heiress, Elizabeth Byler Younts with A Promise to Return, and Autumn Macarthur with The Wedding List. SOOOO GOOD! Check them out!

5) If you didn’t like writing books, what would you do for a living?

I think I’d go back to being a teacher. Still lots of books around me there. 🙂

6) Can you share a little of your current work with us?

I’m currently working on a Novella Prequel to The Wounded Warrior’s Wife. It’s my FREE gift to my readers for all the kindness and support they’ve shown me.

7) What book do you wish you could have written?

No kidding…there are too many to name. We’d be here all day! I’m so amazed and impressed by many authors. I want to be like so many of them when I “grow up.”

8) Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

I want them to know how much I love them, how special they are, and how much God loves them. I’m so thankful for my readers, and I love connecting with them. I enjoy when they share their lives with me and let me know how I can pray for them. It’s wonderful!
