{ I Don't Dance Blog Tour- Day One; Giveaway + Interview with Jesseca Wheaton }


Hey, Y'all! I know its only Wednesday BUT for a very special reason, Thursday's post is early! Jesseca Wheaton's' I Don't Dance releases TOMORROW!  I am so so so so excited and definitely will be buying it hot off the press.

I N T E R V I E W.

1. Thanks for doing this interview, Jesseca! Let’s start off with a question about your popular book, A Question Of Honor. What inspired it?
A Question of Honor began with two pictures I found on Pinterest. One was of a couple saying goodbye, and the other was of a soldier with a little girl on his lap. I pined them and thought maybe someday I’d write a story for them. But then I couldn’t wait so I wrote a quick scene…and the rest is history.

2. How do you manage to squeeze writing into your day? Do you have a specific time of day set aside for writing?
Haha, I wish! Most of the time, though, my days are so busy that I just try and fit writing in wherever.
Normally this works better at night because I can make sure I’ve finished my things fo the day and give myself an hour or so dedicated just for writing. Some days when things are slower I can also fit in some time in the afternoon. Those days are always a treat.

3. Does finishing a book make you happy or sad? Why? :D
It depends, and it’s kinda a mix of both, to some degree. Happy that the story is finished, but sad that I have to leave my characters. It’s one reason why theres a Questions of War series and not one book...xD

4. What are some of your personal favorite World War Two books?
The Waves of Freedom series by Sarah Sundin is amazing. Also, Resist by Emily Ann Putzke and Brothers in Arms by Jack Lewis Baillot.

5. About “I Don’t Dance”, was it hard to write contemporary fiction after writing your Questions of War series?
Not really. I had expected it to be more difficult to get into as I was writing, but that wasn’t the case. The style you write in is slightly different, and of course, the research that goes into it is different. But I didn’t have a difficult time with it.

6. Lastly, What is the story behind I Don’t Dance? What inspired it?
During the time when I wrote, I Don’t Dance God was teaching me to wait. Not exactly in the same way as Ty, but the lesson was similar all the same. I Don’t Dance was written, among other things, to encourage others when God has said ‘wait’. It was inspired by a number of things, but I’d have to say that was the main thing.



Title: I Don't Dance.
Author: Jesseca Wheaton.
Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Military.

About The Book:

"Ty and Jen have been friends for nearly as long as anyone can remember. But when Ty goes off to college and leaves her behind, he has to face the reality that he cares for her as more than just a friend.
As graduations approaches and with only one summer left before he begins basic training, Ty must make a decision. Military life is never easy; is it fair to force it on the one he loves?
In the midst of wrestling with the question and coming to the realization that summer is quickly drawing to a close, Ty struggles to face questions he cannot answer, and is forced to examine his own heart.
Is it possible that God has a future for him with Jen? Or will the summer close with only memories of days gone by?

Their relationship would be old fashioned. But that was okay. Because old fashioned and whimsical fit perfectly with a southern summer."

About the Author:

Jesseca is a daughter, sister, and a child of God. Her days are spent reading, cooking, spending time with siblings, or playing piano. And writing, of course! At an early age words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she’s convinced there’s no place like home.
