Finally Available: Entangled: Surrendering the Past

Posted by Julie on June 3, 2016 in About Me, Book Review, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender |

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.

Wow.

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: 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?

ENTANGLED: Surrendering the Past

Posted by Julie on April 18, 2016 in About Me, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender, Writing |

So many of you were kind enough to read the original ENTRUSTED and have been so patient. You’ve asked when is the next book coming out? Well, hold on. We are so close to release.

Today, I give you the cover.

ENTANGLED: Surrendering the Past is coming soon!

ENTANGLED: Surrendering the Past is coming soon!

ENTANGLED: Surrendering the Past is Carla’s story and I’m excited to share it with you. The story dropped in my lap as I prayed about the end of ENTRUSTED. It’s a theme I know well, and I think you might, too. Carla’s been given everything she could possibly want, but she feels she’s unworthy because of a rebellious choice she made years ago.

Carla’s been given her dream, to leave her job as sheriff and attend cosmetology school. The gift is so overwhelming that she struggles with feeling unworthy, especially since she still feels guilty for becoming a mom as a teenager. When Wayne Peterson reenters her and their son Noah’s life, Carla creates some tangles between her and her steadfast boyfriend, the flannel-wearing, truck driver Will Marshall. Can Carla release her past and create a future full of highlights, or, will she burn her options worse than a bad perm?

My hope is to have ENTANGLED available next month, along with the re release of ENTRUSTED: Surrendering the Present. ENGAGED: Surrendering the Future, Trish’s story, should be ready by year’s end.

The critique groups and beta readers who went through ENTANGLED had a hard time trying to guess the ending and how Carla would find freedom through surrender. There were definitely “Team Will” and “Team Wayne” fans, and I look forward to seeing what YOU think.

My hope is to release the  ENTRUSTED e version for free for awhile and do so as ENTANGLED: Releasing the Past releases. Do me a favor and grab both copies. Read them, and if you enjoy them, leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Reviews are vital for authors, and I can’t encourage audiences to find freedom through surrender if they don’t know what resources I have for them. I truly believe through fiction readers will relate to characters and their surrender journey, and take that next step toward freedom for themselves. Partnering with me by spreading the word and leaving reviews will make all the difference.

Entrusted: Surrendering the Present

Posted by Julie on April 16, 2016 in About Me, encouragement, God's Word, Julie Arduini, Life Lessons, surrender, Writing |
EntrustedFinalCover2

Entrusted: Surrendering the Present will be re released soon along with Entangled: Surrendering the Past.

Yesterday I announced that Surrendered Scribe Media is now official. My first business related venture is re branding the Adirondack Surrender Romance series into Surrendering Time. Although readers might be familiar with Entrusted, I changed the cover and tweaked the title to reflect the series. So be on the lookout for ENTRUSTED: Surrendering the Present.

Jenna Anderson, sassy city-girl from Youngstown, Ohio, plows–literally–into Adirondack village, Speculator Falls, with a busted GPS and the goal to belong as she becomes the new senior center director. Town councilman Ben Regan is as broken as the flower box Jenna demolished. He’s grieving and wants to shut down the center before there’s too much change and heartbreak. They work on community projects and build a slow relationship, but the council needs to vote on the senior center’s future. Can Jenna show Ben both her and the center are worth trusting?

I love Ben and Jenna’s story because it tackles themes I think we can relate to. Fear. Change. Loss. Their story is over 20 years in the making and they are precious characters to me. Reviews for the original ENTRUSTED were very strong, and I need YOUR help to spread the word.

My hope is to release the e version for free for awhile and do so as ENTANGLED: Releasing the Past releases. Do me a favor and grab both copies. Read them, and if you enjoy them, leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Reviews are vital for authors, and I can’t encourage audiences to find freedom through surrender if they don’t know what resources I have for them. I truly believe through fiction readers will relate to characters and their surrender journey, and take that next step toward freedom for themselves. Partnering with me by spreading the word and leaving reviews will make all the difference.
