Forsaken Blog Tour

Meet Vanessa Miller, author of Forsaken

Vanessa, tell us about Forsaken.

Forsaken is the story of a fallen preacher’s journey back to God. The synopsis reads:

Pastor Jerome Tyler “JT” Thomas is charismatic behind the pulpit, charming to all he comes in contact with, and lethal to those who linger too long. Since the age of twenty-two, when he prayed for God to keep him out of prison, JT knew he would preach the gospel. Bishop Turner makes it possible; but there are strings attached, and now JT isn't sure he can stay tied down.

Cutting loose causes more problems than JT anticipated. When an old friend from his days on the streets resurfaces and his extracurricular activity comes knocking on his front door, JT’s life and the lives of those close to him spiral out of control. Now he will need divine intervention to make things right. But how much help can a man hope to receive when he feels he’s been forsaken by God?

How did you come up with ideas for this book?

There has been so many stories in the media about pastors who have fallen, that I wanted to write a book that shows people what needs to happen when you find yourself in a fallen state. This book is not just for fallen pastors, but any Christian who falls – it’s a book that shows that you can get back up.

Who are your main character(s)?

Pastor Jerome Tyler (JT) Thomas and his wife, Cassandra

Did you have a favorite character(s)? Who and why?
I really felt Cassandra’s pain in this story and the sequel, title (Forgiven) so she would have to be my favorite character in this series.

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

I want readers to know that God is a forgiving God. Therefore, if any of us fall, we can turn back to God with a repentant heart, because He has grace and mercy for his people.

Okay, a not-so-fun question. How important are reviews to you as a writer?

They are very important to me. I have to admit, I read all of my reviews and enjoy the fact that readers gain a better understanding having a relationship with Jesus Christ after reading my novels.
