I'm a Texan, born and raised. I love my God and my family (friends included as family!) My first novel was realeased December 23, 2014 and I've since finished writing my second manuscript and have begun my third. Being a successful writer has been a dream of mine for years, since I was little. I can't wait to see where God takes my first book and my future ones. I pray that it touches many hearts. For those of you who love suspense novels, good vs. evil, you may be interested!

Reflection Unknown

Written by Brooke-Lauren Montgomery

So, I've been furiously working on one of my latest novels, Reflection Unknown. I just finished plotting the last half of the book, and am SO excited to write it!!!!

For those of you who like horror, this book is right up your ally, no doubt. It's extremely graphic and beyond creepy. It's so disturbing in some aspects that I actually had to take a break from writing and reconnect with God. (Not that I wasn't connected before. Just had to get closer with Him). But, the stuff in this book is really dark. It does have a good ending. Evil does not win. Evil will never win in any of my books, because God prevails over all evil.

Reflection Unknown is still in the making, so I don't have a publisher for it yet. I'm hoping to land an agent for this manuscript. I can tell my writing has gotten so much stronger since the first book I wrote, The Protected:The Unseen Realm, which is supposed to be released sometime in March or April 2014. (Not that my writing isn't strong in The Protected.) I've just been able to catch mistakes better than I used to before sending it to my editor, DeWanna Pace. She's awesome! She's been editing my manuscript, Reflection Unknown, and has shown me how to improve before sending it to agents or publishing companies. She's just fabulous.

My first novel, The Protected: The Unseen Realm, is geared for middle school through college age kids. It does have a couple of somewhat graphic scenes, and has no profanity. This is a book sold under the Christian Market. I believe I talked a little more about it on a seperate blog of mine recently. But, if you like angels and demons, good vs. evil, this is your book! And, if you like endings with a twist, this is also your book! Lol. If you are one that likes a good freaky, page turner, nail biting experience without the gore and profanity, you'll love this book. 

If you like gore, high tension, nail shredding, on the edge of your seat books, Reflection Unknown is most definitely for you. It does contain some "mild" profanity in it. Also, if you like twist endings, you'll love it! Reflection Unknown would not fly under the Christian Market due to its extreme graphic contents and occassional profane language. (Nothing like the F word or misuse of God's Name).

I have big hopes for these two novels. I love my God-given gift to write! I hope that when these two novels come out, you guys will read them and enjoy them, and also learn something through them.
I will update more on each of these novels later.
I'm supposed to be getting back my first edits on The Protected: The Unseen Realm any day now. Feels like forever when you're an excited writer! :]

Hope everyone has a blessed day and a wonderful rest of the week!

Must Read: Becoming More Than A Good Bible Study Girl

I finished reading a very good book a few days ago called, Being More Than A Good Bible Study Girl by Lysa TerKeurst. She is the president of Proverbs 31 Ministries.

This book is one I highly recommend. Lysa is very transparent. She doesn't try to hide anything. She's also very straightforward, and doesn't sugar coat things. However, she is absolutely hilarious! I laughed several times while reading her book.

Being More Than A Good Bible Study Girl teaches us that we are not worthless. It teaches us that God is the only thing that can fill the void everyone is born with. Everyone's void is different, and everyone tries desperately to fill it with temporary things that bring us happiness. Eventually the happiness wears off and we try to fill it with more and more and more, and it never seems to work. We can never get enough. In her book, Lysa shows how we CAN get enough. After reading Being More Than A Good Bible Study Girl, I felt happier than I had in a long time. I read it within two days, and it was the best two days I'd had in a while.

I felt closer to God. Not only that, but I could relate, almost in every aspect, to Lysa! I would come across places where she'd messed up in life and I'd think, Whoa! You did that, too??

This book is geared for girls and women. Lysa really hits home for how a lot of women feel inside even though they cover their unhappiness with a smile.

I rate the book 5 out of 5 stars. It's one I'm definitely keeping to reread.

If you feel like you're missing something, read this book. You won't regret it.
