Who? What? Fiction Clashers Revealed

*This clash is hosted by April Gardner and Michelle Massaro

Welcome to Reveal Day! Did those sound-bites make you drool for more? Dying to know the titles so you can pick up your own copy? We've got you covered.

Excerpt A was from Winds of Wyoming by Rebecca Carey Lyles
Winds of Wyoming, Becky Lyles’s first novel, debuted in January. Her nonfiction titles are: It’s a God Thing! and On a Wing and a Prayer.
Becky Lyles and her husband of many years have lived in several western states, most recently the beautiful state of Idaho. She enjoys the creativity and beauty that abound throughout her adopted state as well as opportunities to hike, camp and cross-country ski in the midst of God’s grandeur. Volunteer activities include leadership in her local writers group and on her church’s VBS council plus acting as a coach for women who are transitioning from prison to society and seeking positive lifestyle changes. Becky is currently working on the Winds of Wyoming sequel titled Winds of Freedom.
Fresh out of a Pennsylvania penitentiary armed with a marketing degree, Kate Neilson heads to Wyoming anticipating an anonymous new beginning as a guest-ranch employee. A typical twenty-five-year-old woman might be looking to lasso a cowboy, but her only desire is to get on with life on the outside—despite her growing interest in the ranch owner. When she discovers a violent ex-lover followed her west, she fears the past she hoped to hide will imprison her once again.


Excerpt B was from Night of the Cossack by Tom Blubaugh
Author – Behind the Scenes of the Bus Ministry self –published 1974
The Great Adventure co-author Barbour Publishing 2009
Night of the Cossack by Faith Publishing 2011
Tom Blubaugh was raised in a small town in southeast KS. He began writing poetry at age fourteen. When Elvis Presley made his appearance, Tom started writing poetry and answering adds in comic books to turn his poems into lyrics. This didn’t work out, but he had found a way to express his feelings and being shy, it was a perfect way to communicate with girls. Tom found creative ways to discard the liver and onions his mother cooked, but strangely , he likes them now. He gets annoyed by people who say they can’t do something without trying.

Tom Blubaugh has created an interesting fictional account of a young boy facing a series of tough life-or-death decisions when forced into the life of a Cossack soldier. Readers are sure to be entertained by this tale of Nathan Hertzfield’s life, his struggle to maintain the upstanding character and morality set forth by his mother, and his eventual escape to America. ~ Michelle Buckman, Christy Award Finalist.
