Here’s The Captive Brides Collection hard back, large-print edition with the novella that I read on air (His Indentured Bride). BUT, it’s on sale for $3.82 Kindle version (no idea when/if that changes as it’s up to Amazon on their sales). However, it is available at your favorite local retailer or library simply by asking. I’d love to know if listeners/readers enjoy hearing an author read their stories. I’m considering doing an audiobook of Bitterroot Bride (different story) and would like to know what you think about that idea. Send me a note here on my website or drop a line on social media @AngBreidenbach (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest) so I learn what you think about author-read audiobooks.

Tips on making your own cover art:

Use a design program like Photoshop or Affinity. Buy stock art, if you’re not an artist: Dreamstime, Thinkstock, Lightstock, etc. where you can buy photos. Look for royalty-free, read the details before purchasing to know the license (how many copies, what type of use, etc.) Watch out for the allowance to (or not) manipulate a photo for a unique look such as changing the color of the dress or the model’s hair.

Tips on writing biblical fiction: Research the character of the person, the setting, and use a critique group. The most important thing in writing biblical fiction is to stay true to the bible. Leeway for fiction is in what is left off the biblical page, but that you learn in researching the time, place, and world that existed at that time. You can assume certain common elements if you know through research what they are.

About Rachel: Rachel S. Neal is an author living under the big sky of Montana. Her books are self-published and provide a means to fund charitable causes. Samaritan’s Purse and Answers in Genesis are two of her favorites. Where you might happen across Rachel: Anywhere her feet can go. She likes to walk, taking her camera along for an adventure. The Oregon coast is a favorite, walking with her husband, sand between her toes and a pocketful of treasure. In her garden- planting, dividing, weeding, pruning, and just being. Anywhere that sells concrete, paint, fabric, glue, or second-hand goods. So many projects, so little time. On the couch beneath a cat, a cup of coffee, notebooks, Bible, or any I-can’t-stop-reading-til-the-last-page tale. On her knees, seeking grace that never runs dry…

Prosciutto Eggs

Prosciutto Eggs—Yum!

As promised in this episode, Prosciutto Egg Cups Recipe (learned from the Better Homes & Gardens special issue on Mediterranean Diet, April 2018) Spray the inside of a muffin tin, line with Prosciutto covering the bottom and sides with one layer, crack an egg into the well, slice grape or cherry tomatoes in half and place on top of egg white, drop a tsp. of pesto on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 min. Note: The eggs should be slightly unfinished as they finish setting up for a couple of minutes after taking them out of the oven. Each oven is different, so experiment with the doneness to your preference.
