Update: Congrats Ganise! You Won!
*Disclaimer: This interview is posted on Becky Wade’s website. She has given permission for it to be posted here. And frankly, the questions were so much like I would have asked, I thought they were great for today.
1.What inspired you to write Undeniably Yours?
I was inspired by Regency-era love stories I read growing up that featured wealthy and aristocratic heroines paired with brave-hearted, common-born heroes. I write contemporary romance and so it was great fun for me to bring these character types into a modern Texas setting and give their storyline my own unique twist.
2.What is the book’s theme?
Undeniably Yours is about a woman’s journey from weakness to strength. She’s able to find that strength, little by little, as she trusts in God’s power and plan.
3.How would you describe your writer’s voice?
My voice is funny, authentic, and modern. I write love stories about imperfect people redeemed by a perfect God. It’s my hope that my books will charm and entertain my readers, while simultaneously stirring their emotions and encouraging their faith.
4.Is Undeniably Yours part of a series?
All of my books stand alone. They each tell a complete story in and of themselves. At the same time, I’ve long wanted to write a group of books about members of the same family, and starting withUndeniably Yours, I’ll have that chance! Undeniably Yours is the first of four books about the Porter family from Holley, Texas. Each book will detail the story of a different sibling.
5.What was your reaction when your CBA debut novel, My Stubborn Heart, was recently named a finalist for the RITA award?
Joy! I was so conscious, when I received the news, that God is the one worthy of recognition for the creation of My Stubborn Heart. I believe that it’s not me who writes, so much as it’s me who steps out of the way and seeks to let God write books through me.
The nomination also filled me with gratitude for the people responsible for bringing the book to publication. My agent believed in it from the beginning. My editor, Sarah Long, championed and improved the manuscript. Everyone at Bethany House — from the editorial staff, to the cover designer, to the marketing and sales teams — lent it amazing support.
Becky Wade has graciously offered to give away a copy of Undeniably Yours two weeks from today on May 17th! All you need to do to win is leave a comment and a winner will be randomly selected. I ask that you please include your email address. So, to get conversation started what is one thing you like about a Becky Wade novel or what is the first thing you would do if you found out you inherited millions?

Thank you for reading and reviewing Undeniably Yours, Embassie! You were one of the first bloggers to contact me after reading My Stubborn Heart. Your encouragement — then and now — is a blessing to me. Many thanks!
Your welcome! You are a fantastic writer! And thank you!
Becky, I am so happy for you about your writing career. Loved your first novel and know I will enjoy this one too.
Thank you, Jenn!
Fell in love with Becky’s last book! They are so easy to relate to. Can’t wait to read this one!
Keeping the books real and relatable is a goal of mine, Candice! I hope you enjoy Undeniably Yours.
I really enjoyed Undeniably Yours and My Stubborn Heart! I agree that you are a humorous author with down to earth characters. And I absolutely loved Bo Porter and his family! Can’t wait to read about the rest of the family! Kate acted just like some people I know, so she was for real, real! Great start of a writing career! Be blessed!
In response to what would I do if I just found out I had inherited millions, after giving my tithe, I would take a much needed vacation and then quit my job! LOL!
I’m delighted to hear that you loved Bo Porter, Martie. I loved him, too. In fact, I submitted Undeniably Yours to my publisher a full year ago, but Bo still has a soft spot in my heart. Books about the rest of the Porters are on their way! Thanks so much for reading my MSH and UY.
I’ve not read any of Becky’s books before but have wanted to and would love to be able to win a copy of her new book Undeniably Yours! The cover is so stinkin’ cute!!Thanks so much for the giveaway!
Hi, Bethany! Thanks for your interest in my books. I agree with your assessment of the cover: stinkin’ cute! I lucked out with it, for sure. Did you know that the cover models are a real life married couple? I have an interview with them on the ‘fun extras’ page of my website. 🙂
Pay off all my debt and travel to Haiti to work at the orphanage I worked in as a teenager… I would love to go back as part of my heart has always remained 🙂
I haven’t read any of Becky’s books yet, but I absolutely cannot wait!! If I inherited millions, I think I would put it all in the bank because I would be too tempted to spend it all! 🙂
Please enter me!
What do I like about Becky’s writing? Well to borrow a few words 🙂 It’s ‘ funny, authentic, and modern’. Very true. Her debut was a delight to read and I am looking forward to this one.
