I love reading a book review because I enjoy hearing the reader’s ideas. Every reader will bring something different to the table. So this year for Women of Faith and Fiction, I wanted to give a shout-out to the book reviewers. They do a marvelous job! Let’s begin.
Who is Trisha Robertson?
Hi, my name is Trisha Robertson. I am a book reviewer/blogger. I have always loved stories. My love of reading began around age 8 and I’ve had my nose in a book ever since. I started writing stories of my own in elementary school. Stories that have never seen the light of day, and many that are lost to the dust of time. I especially enjoy reading and learning about History. Be sure to stop by my blog and say “Hello!” You can find me at www.joyofreadingweb.wordpress.com

Your love of reading shows, Trisha. Tell me, who is your all-time favorite character?
Honestly, I enjoy all the characters I meet in books. My favorite character changes with each book I read! 😊
I hear ya! What is your latest read about?
As I write this, I’m currently reading The Blizzard Bride by Susanne Dietz. The story is part of the Daughters of the Mayflower collection from Barbour. Each story stands on its own and can be read in any order, but it is fun to read the stories down through history from the Mayflower! This story takes place during the Blizzard of 1888 in Nebraska. It is quite a page-turning story!
I will definitely have to check it out. Please, tell us about your reading process.
I don’t really have a reading process. I just pick up a book and read it! I do have little sticky flags to mark favorite quotes or things I want to remember. Or in my digital books, I use the highlight feature.
Where would we be without our highlight feature? I like marking my favorite quotes. Moving on… What is your best marketing tip?
Give signed bookplates to members of your influence team. I’m always more inclined to buy a print copy over a digital copy if I have a signed bookplate to add to my book!
Share your book on various social media platforms. The more people see your book, the more likely they are to buy it.
I like both ideas, especially the signed bookplate idea. Do you choose a word or scripture for each year?
No, I don’t really choose a word or scripture for each year. I know it’s a rather popular thing to do. For me, I feel that just one word or one verse doesn’t fit the entire year.
I believe it’s important to encourage each other in our daily walk. Would you share a word of encouragement with our readers?
Keep your focus on God. It is so very important to have a daily relationship with God! I have found that when I lose my focus on Him, I start to fall. But as long as I’m keeping my focus on Jesus, even when bad things happen, even when I don’t understand, that He gives me the will to keep going. On my own, I’m not enough. But He is enough! Always!
Thank you, Gail, for inviting me to participate in this interview and visit with your readers today!
I agree, Trisha! Thank you for visiting and sharing. You are a gift to your readers and to authors. Keep up the good work, dear friend.
