ENTANGLED by Julie Arduini
Julie Arduini loves to encourage readers to surrender
Welcome, Julie! If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
I think I would enjoy a dinner with President George W. Bush. I think his faith story is a fascinating one, and although he might not have been a perfect president, I believe he was a compassionate one. He seems like a person that would be interesting to chat with over a thick steak.
What fun or unique things can you tell us about yourself?
I was born on Good Friday with tornado warnings. I used to live 7 miles from the Watkins Glen NASCAR track. I can usually guess what year songs and movies from the 1980s were from and be right, but I have the hardest time getting Bible verses completely accurate.
What can your readers expect from you next?
I’m one-third done with Engaged: Surrendering the Future, the last book in the Surrendering Time series. Trish Maxwell was the bad girl in Entrusted, and now she’s back in Speculator Falls with no job and a lot of explaining to do. Everyone wants to know what her next step is. Will it include the handsome paramedic who caught her eye?
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Reviews are vital. If you enjoyed Entangled or Entrusted, leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads. Tell others. Word of mouth is such an effective means of marketing, and I can’t do it without help from the readers. I appreciate every single thing readers do to let others know my work exists and that it is worth reading.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Entangled.
“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?

What surrender issue would you like to see utilized? (Entrusted was about surrendering fear and change, Entangled is surrendering regret, and Engaged will be surrendering the plans you have in exchange for God’s.)
