It was a story I never meant to write, and I struggled every word. When I finally felt I had a decent plot together and tackled it, I came up thirty thousand words short.

Yep. Thirty. Thousand. Words.

Even after I finished, something still felt off. Not wrong, just off. Once I started pressing in, I realized it was a stirring. Eventually Entangled became the first new release from my own Surrendered Scribe Media.

Yep. This crazy year, I obeyed God’s call to start my own business where I encourage audiences to find freedom through surrender.  I’ll accomplish it through speaking and fiction. My Surrendering Time series is my first fiction.

Yep. God knew what He was doing. Already the feedback is coming in that Entangled is helping readers see they need to let go of guilt or choices that are holding them back. That story I was ready to give up on is being used to help people.


Because May was so busy, so far it is only on Amazon, but for print, I will probably make it available a few more places. Whether or not you have a Kindle, my version for Kindle is readable on a free app for your tablet, phone, etc…

Here’s what Entangled is about:

Entangled is now available on Amazon.

Entangled: Surrendering the Past

Book #2, Surrendering Time Series

Julie Arduini


“You need to leave me alone. It’s the least you can do.”


Carla Rowling has been given her dream of attending cosmetology school. The gift is so generous she feels unworthy because of choices she made as a teen. The pressure mounts as Carla juggles school, is a single mom, helps her best friend Jenna plan her wedding, spends time with boyfriend Will Marshall, and deals with the fact that her son’s father is back in their lives. Will Marshall is the one Speculator Falls resident everyone can count on. His truck deliveries are reliable. He’s the first to help friends like Ben Regan with boat work or be a card partner with Bart Davis. Will’s ready to settle down with Carla, loving her is natural. He’s bonded with her son, Noah. But when Carla starts cosmetology school, she puts emotional distance between her and Will. Can Carla release her past and create a future full of highlights, or, will she burn her options worse than a bad perm?
