A Christmas Chat with Christine Schimpf (Giveaway)

on Inspirational Moments





I'd like to welcome Christine Schimpf to Inspirational Moments! She's a wonderful Christian author who has just released a Christmas book called A Christmas Kind of Perfect. More details about that book at the end of the interview! Did I say she's wonderful? She's even giving away a free e-book this week. So, make sure you pay attention to the interview and comment at the end for your chance to win! Here we go.

Renee: Hi there, Christine, welcome. I guess we'd better get started. Everyone's chomping at the bit to get to know you. First things, first....what brings you joy about writing?

Christine: There are times during the editing process that I throw my head back and laugh at some of things I have my characters say and then comment to my husband on how funny they are. It’s then I realize they're not real people and laugh at myself again. Writing is such a wonderful creative outlet for me and melding it with a faith statement that gives the story some bones and meaning make it all the more fascinating for me as a writer.

Renee: We do get submersed in our characters, don't we? They are very real to us! Speaking of your husband, what does your family think of your writing?

Christine: My husband, Ernie, is my biggest fan and cheerleader. He asked me to write his grandparents’ love story. That’s when my writing career really started. My family feels pretty special walking into a store and seeing my book on the shelf or on Amazon’s book page. My oldest granddaughter, whom I dedicated my Christmas romance, helps me edit my work when she visits. We sit behind the computer screen, chairs touching, and go through the lines together. My two little grandsons ask me, “Nana, are you a real author? Cool!” That’s pretty special right there.

Renee: There is nothing like a little bit of respect and admiration to make it all worthwhile. It's hard to sit down at the computer or paper day after day, especially since we see buck a big system, when our reward as Christian authors is not of this world. I'm so glad you have your family behind you. I know you have a current release but is there anything on the horizon for you?

Christine: Actually yes. In September, I finished a romantic novella entitled, A Perfect Fit, a spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect. The story steps into the life of a young woman who typically chooses the wrong kind of man until she turns the decision over to God. But it’s not always easy letting go, even of behaviors that hurt us. 
Presently, I’m working on A Perfect Ending another spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect with intentions on finishing that work by summer 2018.  This story peeks in on a woman with a professional career. Her intentions are to keep moving forward and achieving more and more success until God places her in an unexpected situation and turns her world upside down.

Renee: A trilogy of romance! This is exciting, folks! I can't wait to read all three. Thanks for stopping by Inspirational Moments, Christine. It's been a blast visiting with you. Let us know when your next book pops out on those store shelves so we can add it to our collections.

About the Book: 


Conrad Hamilton thought his life would be easy. A great job running his own construction business, living in his hometown in Door County, Wisconsin, with Lila Clark by his side. He planned on marrying her as soon as she returned from her Chicago internship but it never happened. 
Lila never expected to become a successful writer nor did she plan on spending the last decade in New York. But she did. 
Can the magic of Christmas turn two hearts back to one another again or is it too late to capture that special kind of perfect?






Excerpt:

Chapter 1 
Lower Manhattan, New York  
 
     Lila almost tripped over her suitcase as she swept into her apartment. Hand to chest, she willed the panic to subside. It seemed that everywhere she went lately, she saw a tall, broad-shouldered man who reminded her of…him. Her first love. He was even showing up in her dreams.  
     Taking a deep breath, she locked the door and kicked off her high-heels. She dragged the suitcase to her bedroom and quickly unpacked as if by doing so she could set memories from ten years ago back in the closet of her mind where they belonged.  
     It hadn’t mattered where her book signing was or that she’d been out on the west coast working on the movie versions of her books, Conrad haunted her.  
     Ah, the mind of an author was a terrifying place at times. She’d been working too hard. At least that’s the excuse she gave herself. Settling into more comfortable clothes she headed to the kitchen. 
     Lila walked to the window of her apartment cradling a cup of chamomile tea sweetened with honey. She watched the street traffic below, which reminded her of a busy ant colony. How she wished the city would sleep, if only for one night. Oh, the blessed silence. She’d walk for miles. Better yet, she’d run. Although Lila feared the attempt wouldn’t be easy. Like so many other activities she used to enjoy doing, she’d abandoned running since moving to the Big Apple years ago.  
     She padded over to her favorite chair, a chaise lounge in dire need of new fabric, and snuggled in like a fat cat finding its spot. The chair stuck out compared to the eclectic-themed room, but Lila refused to reupholster the piece despite the persuasive arguments from her friends. In an odd sort of way, Lila drew comfort from the inanimate object. They shared the same flaw—an inability to fit in with their surroundings.  
     Lila’s bones ached. Now that she was back in the city, her life would return to normal. She’d hibernate for the next few weeks and start outlining her next book. Ugh. At this point, she’d much rather clean her uncle’s morning catch of fish.  
     Goodness, what had made her think of her uncle? He’d died years ago.  
     Reaching for the remote, she flicked on the receiver. Sounds from an acoustic guitar filled the room. Ooh, much better. She placed her emptied cup near her phone on the end table, leaned her head back on the cushion, and stared up at the ceiling.  
     Her smartphone buzzed. Ahh. The phone always seemed to ring at the worst of times, scaring her half to death. The clock had barely moved five minutes, and she’d bet her last chocolate donut that her agent Andrea was calling with another idea for a book tour. Lila swiped the call through. With tired eyes and a worn-out spirit, she forced a pleasant tone. Sounding irritated was not how Lila wanted to present herself. “Hello.”
     “Hi, I’m calling for Lila Clark.” 
     Lila’s heart stopped as if she’d skidded on ice and slammed her vehicle into a fire hydrant. This wasn’t Andrea. She recognized the sing-song melody in the caller’s voice, so reminiscent of someone from the past. Was her memory going as well as her stamina?


About the Author:

 
Christine Schimpf was born and raised in a small town in southeastern Wisconsin, graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, and is an award winning essayist.

Her debut novel, Nick, The Journey of a Lifetime (2011) is based on the life of her grandfather-in-law. "It's about love, immigration, risk, fear and success all rolled into one powerful story," says Schimpf.  Five years after its release, the book remains the #1 best seller in her hometown at a local book store and gift shop. 

The Ticket (2015), an inspirational romance set during the construction of Titanic centers on a young woman overcoming selfishness. The book won the 2014 semifinalist seat in the American Christian Fiction Writers Association’s Genesis Contest in the Historical Romance Novella category.

Christmas 2017 Prism/Pelican Book Group will release Schimpf's, A Christmas Kind of Perfect, an inspirational romance that tests the strength of forgiveness in a love thought lost. The story is set in Wisconsin's Door County, in a small village known as Sister Bay.  

Christine is a member of the national and local chapters of the American Christian Fiction Writers Association, the Romance Writers of America, The Wisconsin Writers Association. 

She lives on five acres in the country with her husband and golden retriever and is now fortunate to devote most of her time to writing. She always has a work-in-progress, but in her spare time, she enjoys golf, tennis, kayaking and simply being outdoors as that is her source of inspiration.

Her advice to those wanting to take the leap into writing is to join a writing/critique group, read as often as you can, and study the craft.

An interview with Christine Schimpf

 

If you could change anything in your last book what would it be?

The timing and submission process. Since I independently published my first two books I didn’t have a clue how long the traditional publishing process would actually take. Now, I have a complete and thorough understanding and can time my submissions more appropriately.

How much of a factor is your faith in your writing?

It’s the start, the middle, and the end of my writing. In my conversations with God I throw a couple of ideas around until I sense which topic holds the most importance. If I get lost in a scene and it’s not working for whatever reason, I take my dog, Rudy, out for a long walk. By the time I return home, the scene is clear, in fact, there are times I’ve actually went from a stroll to a fast walk to a run to get back to my computer and hammer out the details that appear as vivid as a movie in my head.

What is the biggest challenge in writing?

Letting the work go and calling it “done”. When you take an idea, give it the characters with their problems and goals, create a setting and other characters, weave the faith statement – the whole point to the story – throughout the scenes, work in cliff hangers and conflict and joy and an ending and then begin editing and polishing over and over again. It’s extremely difficult to let it go and present the story to the world. It almost feels like losing a best friend.

Any advice to new writers?

One of the best steps I took as a young writer was to join a large critique group through a community college. It allowed me to bring in my story, chapter-by-chapter, read it aloud and listen to feedback. By doing this, although a little scary at first, I grew as a writer and as a person who could deliver a sound critique.

Anything on the horizon for you?

Actually yes. In September, I finished a romantic novella entitled, A Perfect Fit, a spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect. The story steps into the life of a young woman who typically chooses the wrong kind of man until she turns the decision over to God. But it’s not always easy letting go, even of behaviors that hurt us.

Presently, I’m working on A Perfect Ending another spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect with intentions on finishing that work by summer 2018.  This story peeks in on a woman with a professional career. Her intentions are to keep moving forward and achieving more and more success until God places her in an unexpected situation and turns her world upside down.

Katie Kolberg Memmel's Katie's View Blog Appearance 

An Interview with author, Christine Schimpf

Hello!

Long time, no blog! I hope this post finds you all happy, healthy, and hankering for some holiday cheer, because...

My friend and writing colleague, Christine Schimpf, has just written her third book, which just so happens to be a Christmas (Christian) romance. I'd go so far as to say it (very much) reminds me of a Hallmark Christmas movie. Since I personally enjoy that genre, I told her I'd interview her here on "Katie's View." That'll give all of you a chance to hear a bit about her, her writing style, and what makes this new Christmas-y e-book of hers, A Christmas Kind of Perfect, so special. I hope you enjoy it!

So tell me, Christine, what makes "A Christmas Kind of Perfect," a must-read this holiday season? 

You know, I've always felt that the Christmas season is a magical time of the year - a time when miracles can happen. I feel this book has a timeless appeal since the experiences of the hero (Conrad) and heroine (Lila) tend to occur over and over again in life. They've both made mistakes in the past that have turned into regrets. Many of us have experienced the very same dilemma. It's my hope that their story has the ability to reach out to my readers who are still hurting - maybe help them to believe in the power of forgiveness and true love, all over again.

That sounds like a beautiful story, and one that many will be able to relate to. In order to write a book like this, do you have a routine with  your writing schedule? Do you set aside a certain time of day, or...?  

I know that many writers do struggle with finding the time to write, but that's not an issue for me. I write every day when I'm working on a book. I almost hate to admit this, but for me, writing is kind of a healthy addiction. Is there such a thing? Until the book is finished, it becomes the friend I take with me wherever I go!

I love that example - the friend you take with you wherever you go. It sounds like you enjoy your work. What do you find most challenging in the writing process?

I'll be honest... It's difficult for me to set the work free. After investing days, weeks, and sometimes years into a project, it's hard for me to say the words, "I'm finished." It seems there's always one more tweak, polish, or embellishment I feel I could make. However, I've found that's one of the big differences in having a publisher, as opposed to independently publishing. This time I'm on their timetable, with concrete deadlines - and there's no wiggling out of their deadline.

Oooo, good answer! As a writer myself, I agree that it's definitely difficult to let our work go, as well as stay on schedule. Tell me, do you have any new writing projects on the horizon?

Actually, yes. In September, I finished a romantic novella entitled, A Perfect Fit. It's a spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect. The story steps into the life of a young woman who typically chooses the wrong kind of man, until... this time she turns the decision over to God. I find that it's not always easy to let go, even of behaviors that can hurt us.

I'm also working on A Perfect Ending, another spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect, with intentions to finish that work by the summer of 2018. This story peeks in on a woman with a solid profession and steep career goals, until God places her in an unexpected situation, and turns her world upside down.

Wow, it sounds like you've got a great series going... Congratulations! If my readers wanted to look you up online and follow your work, how could they do that?

A brief interview with the author:

Christine, what is the most challenging aspect of writing for you?
Absolutely killing my darlings! And they always seem to be scenes that you love the most but that’s the tough work of editing. Having a critique group is essential for me so I can weed out what doesn’t work and hone in on what does.

Are your characters created from people in your life?
I’d have to say they are more likely a combination of all the people I’ve met along the way of life. A writer draws from their real life experiences…the great times in our lives and the times that hurt us the most. I believe that’s our voice.

Where do you get your ideas for your books? Would you consider yourself a creative?
It’s pretty simple really. I wait on God’s timing. I find the outdoors very inspiration for my writing and spend as much time as I can outside. Of course, living in Wisconsin, that time becomes more limited during the cold winter months but if the temperature is above 20 degrees – I make sure to get outside. It’s there that I have the most relaxed conversations with God – where I look for His guidance in my work. Once I’m sure of his direction, I proceed to the next story. When I finish one book, I’m never quite sure there’ll be another so I place my trust in The One who does know and let the rest go.  I wouldn’t consider that a creative practice but one steered by faith.

Anything on the horizon for you?
Actually yes. In September, I finished a romantic novella entitled, A Perfect Fit, a spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect. The story steps into the life of a young woman who typically chooses the wrong kind of man until she turns the decision over to God. But it’s not always easy letting go, even of behaviors that hurt us.

Presently, I’m working on A Perfect Ending another spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect with intentions on finishing that work by summer 2018.  This story peeks in on a woman with a professional career. Her intentions are to keep moving forward and achieving more and more success until God places her in an unexpected situation and turns her world upside down.

A Christmas Kind of Perfect

Please join me in welcoming Christine Schimpf to my blog. I’m excited to share with everyone a little more about Christine and her upcoming Christmas novel, A Christmas Kind of Perfect.
Why is A Christmas Kind of Perfect a must read this Christmas season?

The story is set in the quaint village of Sister Bay in Door County, Wisconsin. The Christmas season blankets the village, bringing back to life old memories for Lila and Conrad. But the hurt between them runs deep and the hope for forgiveness feels elusive. The story brings to light how easy mistakes turn into regret and how difficult it is to make things right after they went so wrong.

How much of real life is in this book?
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “Write what you know.” For a long time, I thought that meant write what you read but for me, I read everything from mystery, to supernatural thrillers to historicals. I now understand that advice to mean write what you’ve experienced in this life and maybe that’s why I started writing in midlife. I needed some of those real life experiences to draw from.

That leads me to my next question…did you always plan on becoming a writer?
To be honest, no. I graduated from college with a degree in public relations and English writing. While I was interviewing for positions my husband asked me to write his grandparents’ story because it was a “cute love story”. Well, it turned out to be a little more than that because they were born in Europe, suffered through World War II, persecution and immigration leading up to founding a successful family business still in operation today, still family owned. The book, Nick, The Journey of a Lifetime, took me longer than expected but it has touched so many people who have a similar past.

What is your preferred genre to write in?
I started out writing historical fiction with Nick, The Journey of a Lifetime and moved to historical romance with The Ticket. I enjoyed both genres but contemporary romance is a natural fit for me where I can write for hours yet it feels like ten minutes has passed. That’s when you know you’ve found your niche.

Anything on the horizon for you?
Actually yes. In September, I finished a romantic novella entitled, A Perfect Fit, a spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect. If accepted, that work will need editing and polishing. The story steps into the life of a young woman who typically chooses the wrong kind of man until she turns the decision over to God. But it’s not always easy letting go, even of behaviors that hurt us.

Presently, I’m working on A Perfect Ending another spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect with intentions on finishing that work by summer 2018.  This story peeks in on a woman with a professional career as a literary agent. Her intentions are to keep moving forward and achieving more and more success until God places her in an unexpected situation and turns her world upside down.

Christine Schimpf has a wonderful new book out today, just in time for Christmas!

Conrad Hamilton thought his life would be easy. A great job running his own construction business, living in his hometown in Door County, Wisconsin, with Lila Clark by his side. He planned on marrying her as soon as she returned from her Chicago internship but it never happened.
Lila never expected to become a successful writer nor did she plan on spending the last decade in New York. But she did.
Can the magic of Christmas turn two hearts back to one another again or is it too late to capture that special kind of perfect?

Christine, is  A Christmas Kind of Perfect a must read this holiday season? If so, why?
The Christmas season is a magical time of the year where Christmas miracles can happen. Lila and Conrad have accepted the mistakes they made in the past have turned into regrets. As the Christmas season unfolds in the quaint village of Sister Bay in Door County, Wisconsin, it doesn’t take long for the past to slowly ebb into the present changing everything between them, but is it enough for a second chance at finding love?
Tell us a little bit about your heroine, Lila Clark.
Lila lives in Manhattan and has found success in writing women’s fiction after a successful Chicago internship and job transfer to New York. She produces one book a year and has just finished an extensive book tour and a trip to the west coast to work out the details for movie deals for a few of her bestsellers. Her career is on track. Her love life is pathetic. Although she’s dated a variety of men, her heart belongs to the one man she hurt the most, Conrad Hamilton. When she receives a phone call from an old friend asking her to come home to Sister Bay in Door County, Wisconsin, she’s certain she will not run into her ex-boyfriend but God’s plans for her life take hold and the door of possibility eases open.
And your hero, Conrad Hamilton?
Conrad is running his own construction firm and dating one of the most attractive women in Sister Bay, Suzanne Matthews, a go-getter in the real estate field. Although Suzanne has always had special eyes for Conrad something key is missing. Suzanne doesn’t want any children and her focus is all business. Despite his feelings on this subject, Conrad is pressured to propose this Christmas season. He tries not to think about Lila and the mistakes involving their demise but when Lila returns to Sister Bay, his world is tilted right off course blurring his future.

Anything on the horizon for you?
Actually yes. In September, I finished a romantic novella entitled, A Perfect Fit, a spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect. The story steps into the life of a young woman who typically chooses the wrong kind of man until she turns the decision over to God. But it’s not always easy letting go, even of behaviors that hurt us.
Presently, I’m working on A Perfect Ending another spin-off romance from A Christmas Kind of Perfect with intentions on finishing that work by summer 2018. This story peeks in on Andrea Lockhart, a woman with a dynamic professional career as a New York literary editor. Her intentions are to keep moving forward and achieving more and more success until God places her in an unexpected situation changing her perspective on everything.

Contract Signed for Third Book!!!                               2016

Great news everyone! I just signed my very first author contract for my third book, a contemporary Christian romance titled, "A Christmas Kind of Perfect" with Prism an imprint of Pelican Book Group. I'm crazy excited and out-of-this-world happy. This was my goal for the year! I can't wait to start the polishing process with the editorial staff and help launch the book next Christmas season. Please watch for it and I'll keep you posted!
