BLOG TOUR: Unresolved Issues Virtual Book Tour

 
Tell us about Unresolved Issues.

Stacelyn thought her life was complete the day she married Dr. Derrick Garrison. The fairytale life she envisioned quickly vanishes, however, when Derrick’s late nights and unexplained absences cause her to question his motives for marrying her. As secrets from the past and emotional wounds are revealed, Stacelyn discovers the hard way that it takes more than love to build a marriage.

Alone and bitter after Derrick’s sudden departure, Stacelyn is forced to face hard truths about the man she married. In the process, she discovers her own unresolved issues.

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

Leading a Couple’s Ministry for ten years gave me plenty of story ideas. My personal life was a great resource as well.

What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading Unresolved Issues?

I want readers to understand that marriage is more than just a passing thought or the “in” thing to do. Secrets cause wounds and can destroy individuals.  Open and honest communication is the key to any relationship.

Do you have upcoming events for readers? Please tell us.

In addition to the blog tour and monthly book club discussions, I am honored to be featured in an Empowerment Author’s Luncheon with literary greats: Kimberla Lawson Roby, Victoria Christopher Murray and Pat G’orge –Walker.

What's next for you?

I plan to write until the ideas cease. My next Urban Christian novel, Doin’ Me, is scheduled for May 2013.

Where can readers find you online?

If you ask the question which author writes stories of redemption and reconciliation I would undoubtedly say Wanda Campbell. She has taken on issues in her novels such as absentee parents, old hurts, abuse, death, alcoholism, bigger than life secrets and a pastor addicted to pornography.
Many human conditions separate us from God, but it's His love that comes right in and bathes us in His grace.
How is it that a fairytale can begin as one and move forward in the same way, but somehow become weaved with issues?
Stacelyn and Derrick Garrison met in college through friends, they believed they were made for one another and both had a relationship with God. But life's challenges and their busyness pushed God further and further down the list. In relationships we have to learn to wait for one another, and we have to wait on God before we get married, a lesson Staci and Derrick quickly find important.
Derrick's insecurities, secrets and emotional instability cause him to walk away from the women he loves and their marriage just 18 months to a year old. Staci loves her husband and wants nothing more than to understand what is going on with him, but instead of sharing; Derrick retreats into himself, and makes the worse decision of his life and his past and the root of his issues meet head on.
Staci continues to try and support her husband but once he moves out all of her insecurities unfold and she begins to spend her time with Malcolm to mend an aching hurt and bruised ego. But as we all know if you are going to pray why worry? Staci would have done well if she had paid into that advice. She prayed and worried and then she just worried and pushed God right out the picture, when she needed Him the most. Instead of waiting for Derrick she moved without him, instead of heeding to Gods voice she pushed it away. Until finally she has no choice but to listen, God finally has her attention.

I enjoy how Campbell introduce her readers to flawed characters in need of God's grace. The redemption happens so naturally all the reader can do is sit back and enjoy the transformation.

Whenever I finish reading a Campbell novel I am drenched in Psalm 34:8 "O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him".

Renew your spirit with Unresolved Issues we all have them.
