Introducing Worth Forgiving

Introducing Worth Forgiving

I am pleased to introduce my guest blogger this morning. Janet K. Brown is a fellow Pen-L author of four books. Her latest, Worth Forgiving, makes it debut September 1. I read Worth Forgiving and found it to be immensely interesting. Riveting, I believe, best describes it because the book kept me turning pages to find out what happened next. This is Janet’s guest post:

Pen-L Publishing will release Book 2 of the Wharton Rock series on Sept. 1. Wharton Rock is a small fictional North Texas town that’s not immune to trouble.

WHW_cover_11-26-14 (1) The first book Worth Her Weight dealt with food addiction and depression. This second book, Worth Forgiving focuses on drug addiction and the difficulty of life as an ex-convict.WF_Front_Sm (1) Both of these books show how the addict is powerless without the Lord. No matter what the struggle, with God, there is hope.

My characters face real life, not as we wish it were, but sometimes, as it is. In Worth Forgiving, prejudice affects Katie, even from the church. Twelve step programs influence and encourage healing. The hardest struggle is to forgive ourselves.

I personally fought food addiction. Twelve step programs helped with my healing. I’m a firm believer in them whether it’s Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, or one of the various others. God healed me emotionally. I lost one hundred pounds. Now, God uses me in ways I would’ve never believed before I admitted my powerlessness and put God on the throne of my life. I’ve kept off the weight for twenty years.

Here’s the back cover blurb on Worth Forgiving.

 Prejudice and mistrust hinders an ex-con, drug addict’s new beginning.

 The state of Texas releases from prison Katie Smith. Full of optimism, she sets out to get a job, rent her own place, and make a home for her eight-year-old daughter, but Katie gave away her daughter three years ago. She could use a friend, but her past choices threaten to doom her to continued failure.

 Larry Pullman graduated from seminary with high marks, but the fact that he has no wife makes finding a preaching job almost impossible. It doesn’t help that running from God as a teenager gave him a past that he can’t undo. All he needs is an ex-con, drug addict messing up his life, but then why did God lead him to her? Or did He?

 Isn’t it enough that Lacey Chandler gave her sister’s daughter a home? Does that mean she has to clean up Katie’s messes forever?

 Could it be that Katie is not Worth Forgiving?

 Pre-order this book now and be entered into a drawing to receive your copy, signed, for free on release day, Sept. 1.

For those who find Worth Forgiving enjoyable, they might want to try book 1, Worth Her Weight.

 How can a woman who gives to everyone but herself accept God’s love and healing when she believes she’s fat, unworthy, and unfixable? Can she be Worth Her Weight?

    LACEY CHANDLER helps her mother, her sister, her friend, and then she binges on food and wonders is there really a God?

     BETTY CHANDLER hates being handicapped and useless, so she lashes out at the daughter that helps, and the God who doesn’t seem to care.

     TOBY WHEELER loves being police chief in Wharton Rock, but when the devil invades the small town, he can’t release control.
