Please JOIN ME at my new Author Paula Rose Michelson Blog!

I love new beginnings! I hope You do to!! For that’s what this blog is! And with the beginning of this blog, I’ll share my experience of researching the history of Naomi (a Sephardic Jew) as she began to tell me her story. Little did I know at that time, that I was in what all fiction author's long for and call the sweet spot. I do know that since starting to write these books in April of 2007, I have been blessed. And with the release of No Other Choice: The Naomi Chronicles, Book One readers have enjoyed my heroines story as much as I did when Naomi and I penned the books. So, whether you love Inspirational Christian Romance, are a reader, writer, or a history buff, I hope you find what I share worth your visit, and I look forward to hearing from YOU!!

3 Inspirational Christian Romances to LOVE!

5Stars! “An emotionally charged, enjoyable fiction! No Other Choice: The Naomi Chronicles, Book One follows the plight of teenage Naomi, who, under the guidance of the mentor, who saved her from being deported, flourishes into a complex young woman. Always remembering, yet haunted by her religious past, she travels through life carrying a weight of guilt for her continual duplicity in her relationships, both female and male. It was easy to be swept up by her plight, while she was constantly on guard and fearful of being unmasked as someone other than the imposter she pretended to be. Her emotions were a roller-coaster of constant doubt even though she felt tempted many times to reveal who she really was, only to catch herself, lest she fall prey to vicious gossip and being shunned by those she loved. This fine line she walked, both verbally and physically played well in this religious drama that was well written with engaging characters, especially the main protagonist, the emotionally, strong-willed Naomi. This historical fiction story was a fact-filled, emotionally charged, and enjoyable appetizer of what was to happen next for Naomi. The final chapter was the perfect setup for book 2 in the Naomi Chronicles.” – Mystery Author, Peggy A. Edelheit

5Stars! “A tale with purpose! Will the love Chaz and Naomi long for ever be grasped? This unfortunate pair is in God’s hands and without HIS help nothing can mend their depravity. Bitterness has taken up residence between this couple.; their souls are filled with yearning, deceit, craving, and yet a thirst for one another. Make sure you get this book and read it to find out how a bride flees as an alternative of confronting the consequences of her exposed mysteries. A story crafted from biblical principles, ‘Choosing to Be” is a tale with purpose, to guild its reader to knowing Jesus Christ as their savior, or to bless those who already have a relationship with HIM. This is the 2nd book I’ve read of the very talented author ‘Paula Rose Michelson’ the 1st was ‘No Other Choice’. I’ve found both books very inspirational and well written. They are a breath of fresh air that will take you away, even for a short while, from the whirlwind and grind of daily life.” Victoria Simcox, author of Fantasy Coming of Age Fictions

5Stars! “Exceptional insight into the struggles of the human condition of sin and the wisdom of God’s saving grace. As Jesus loves his own, will Chaz learn to love Naomi, and she vice versa, as well as resolve to have faith in him? After renewing their marriage vows, and their commitment to Christ, both are enthusiastic to kindle the passion that sparkled but then perished when secrets between them were stripped naked. They have decided that honesty is the only way for them to stay together; however, there are those who are stimulating a disturbance in El Barrio. Make sure and get this great story to see how a loving God intercedes in their union. Once again, author Paula Rose Michelson has written an outstanding narrative—well-written, appealing and enlightening. With exceptional insight into the struggles of the human condition of sin and the wisdom of God’s saving grace.” Victoria Simcox, author of Fantasy Coming of Age Fictions

#Free THE TIME BETWEEN is a fast-paced INSPIRATIONAL THRILLER!

#FREE Kindle through 3/26/17 amzn.to/1EuAlTD
Yesterday I was asked if I'd like my story of how or why I wrote The Time Between, which is FREE through Sunday, March 26th to be shared on another authors blog! Aware that this is an interesting tail, and not hearing back, I decided to share it here...

So, to begin in the middle... since I was half way through editing Commitment for Two: The Naomi Chronicles, Book Four, when I got the desire to write a sweet love story. You know, the kind that makes you think, I wish I'd written that! Ops, if you’re not an author that wouldn't make sense, so I’ll add, makes you think, I wish I were that gal!  

The title of the book was The Time Between, which my hubby loved. A little prodding from him, and I wrote the Back Matter, which was nothing like I wanted it to be. However, having been called to write by God, I was - if not eager - at least... So, I didn't do anything more until, and I'd never done this before, I started searching for song titles that I'd use as chapter titles. 

All the while I was still trying to edit a book that I couldn't focus on! A few months of this and I'd had IT! One Friday, I thought, Okay, one weekend! That's all I'm going to spend on this book! 

Starting the project, the words just flew from my fingers on to the word doc and at the end of that weekend, the book - written in first person - was DONE! 

It being a VERY Short read, two of my friends listened as I read it. One, who's a playwright told me that when I had the second and third acts she'd help me learn her craft. The other - a retired school teacher, who's read all my books told me, "This is your best work so far!"

Nice, hu? But, I know it was the image I selected for the cover and the tagline that helped me overcome my, I can't write or publish that attitude. 

However, it wasn't until I listed to Derek Doepker's webinar that I gave myself permission to own that I’d written a book about an important issue that some who read my other books might not like! Because the issues in this work are important, I'm glad I wrote it and look forward to the second in this three-book series titled They Must See Me! although, I must share that once more I’m not looking forward to writing it, so it’ll have to be another all in book writing weekend to get this book on paper as well!

Author Derek Doepker's Guidance Changed My Thinking!

Derek DoepkerAs an Indie Author since 2014, I've heard and experienced what most who self-publish do, which is the ying-yang of readers who love our books and eagerly await the next one, nice reviews, and sales that don't reflect what we're hearing!

Like most in this situation, I've tried many ways to boost reader awareness and sales from Kindle Free download events to a multi-blog Rafflecopter giveaway, which an author friend offered to do for a fee. Had I known then what I know now, I would have nixted her help because the person who sets up the event is the one who gets the email address. Had I understood, as I do now, how easy it is to give my eBook Kindles away, I would have done that myself in the hope that sales of the other books in my series would sell. 

Though No Other Choice: The Naomi Chronicles, Book One is usually ranked in Amazon's top 100 Bestsellers in Inspirational Romantic Fiction, I still wasn't meeting my writing expenses. Like many self-published authors I know, I wondered if I were deluding myself. I discovered that those who read and posted wonderful reviews for my book were right when I offered a free Kindle download of No Other Choice and sales for that book plus the two others in the series, Choosing to Be, and Beginning Anew took off as well! Since my eBooks are on Kindle Unlimited, I was able to see the number of pages read multiply each hour! 

Happy that the books reviewers were right, my book was GOOD! I eagerly awaited more book sales! 
Yet nothing happened! 

Aware that there were authors who understood what I did not, I signed up for Derek Doepker's two hour webinar, which changed my Point of View! If you have an opportunity to listen to him DO IT! Signing up for his KD Sales Machine Inner Circle was an act of faith on my part. And having mentioned my lagging sales during the webinar, I was delighted when he checked my book out and in three words shared something that will forever impact the way I think about my books!  

Here, I must admit that I struggled when he told me that my book was Inspirational Christian Fiction since Amazon hasn't shown those words below any of my books. However, when I read the definition of these words, I released that they fit ALL my fictions. 


So to restate the obvious, if you're able to sign up for author Derek Doepker's webinar and enroll in his KD Sales Machine Inner Circle do it! And, you might want to hit the 'FOLLOW' found under his picture on his Amazon author page at: https://goo.gl/DyuUuk

What is 'The Kindness Principal' and why do LAMB Ladies need it?

Simply put, 'The Kindness Principal' found within the first LAMB Ministry Book was written because though we all rush through things, women who have suffered trauma and abuse are more likely to hurry through whatever they fear but believe they must do. Reversing this type of survival thinking may seem silly to some. However, those who chose to take the few words that appear in the book, which I've posted below, to heart, and apply them throughout their day can begin to experience what being set free from the tyranny of the 'must do' to the blessing of the 'thank you' we all hunger for feels like. 

Wonder if what I'm telling you is true? Put 'Kindness Principal' number one to the test by writing it out and posting it about as a reminder that:

Whether you know it or not,
You’ve done a lot of work today,
So stop, rest, and
Meet me here again tomorrow.


The above ‘Kindness Principle’ is one I hope you’ll always apply to your life.

And as you do this simple step remember, God won't give you more than you can handle, so if you're feeling stressed it's time to tell yourself it’s okay to just reframe your day. 

This small teaching is from
"How Did We Become Angry?" (Lamb Ministries 7x7
Biblical Recovery for Women Suffering from Trauma & Abuse)
