With New Back Matter, [I] Finally Got IT RIGHT!

After a few tries here's what I learned. 
1.   An author of faith stories, I weave that into my books Back Matter. Some may tell you that what's on the back of a book doesn't matter. But, iyour cover art and title grab the shopper, great Back Matter can sell your book.
2.    Share your characters felt needs so readers bond with them. 
3.    If you've Scripture in your book sharing one or two shows that Christ is important to you and will be to your characters.   
4.   Adding a great review gives shoppers another person's point of view.
Here is my new Back Matter for my faith fictions: 
No Other Choice, Choosing to Be & Beginning Anew 
in which I site the Scripture for a characters felt need
hint at what's to come by mentioning 
a Titus 2 Woman & Blessings Rock & there is a review for each book
In this first book of Naomi’s faith journey we see what happens when we deny who we are and what we believe to achieve our dreams. Bound by secrets, trapped by choices, Naomi is about to discover that life is not what you plan but what happens. 

Naomi journeys from adolescence to womanhood, from frightened isolation and captivity to the noble status of heiress. Trapped in a life where all who know her think her a saint, saddled with a mission and responsibilities, Naomi agrees to marry to sidestep more issues and the couples tangled web escalates for neither are what they seem to be.

As a Jew, Naomi knows the promise of Genesis 12:3 by heart and often repeats “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” When she hears Isaiah 53:5 “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed,” will she believe?

EDITORIAL REVIEW: “A faith based read about love, life and forgiveness there are things we are commissioned to do in our Christian walk, but life choices can make these things seem to be pushed far back and our fleshy desires forefront.”  — Reviews by SweetReadz Mag
In the second of the six faith stories, we see a bride in flight rather than deal with the fall out of revealed secrets. Now Naomi has nothing and no one. But God is about to gift her everything if, finding herself embraced by people who care, she discovers the ‘Lover of her Soul’. 

Will Naomi’s friendship with a ‘Titus 2 Woman’ and the blessings found at ‘Blessings Rock’ bring her to Christ? Can a husband who refuses to forgive handle what he discovers when visiting his family? Is there is more between Chaz and Naomi than their unfulfilled longing? 

Upon hearing Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you,” quoted by his family for the first time after his hidden reality is revealed, will God show Chaz what is true?

When Elí tells Chaz, “No, I am perfectly sane. It is the world that is crazy because they do not realize that the one who died for our sins was the Messiah of Israel—the Jewish Savior!” will the break though Chaz’s unbelief or can finding a dreidel at his uncles archaeological dig help Chaz become the man God created him to be?  http://amzn.to/1zK3rPC

EDITORIAL REVIEW: “A fascinating layered read, the tension between characters leaves you breathless in anticipation. I admit I had to cheat a little and check to make sure there was a happily ever after! Never fear! There is! The plot twists, turns and carries you all the way to the end hoping Chaz and Naomi find each other again! For those looking for a great book... pick it up!” - Kitty Muse Book Reviews
In book three of Naomi and Chaz’s faith journey, after a month of soul searching and finally believing in Messiah the newlyweds wed again. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1 ‘There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” During this season of revelations the couple discovers each other’s secrets and now with a marriage built upon faith in their Savior there are challenges for Chaz is an internationally known and sought after philanthropist, and Naomi the Las Niña’s Tía committed to rescuing teenage girls from immigration.

Will Naomi learn to trust Chaz? Ephesians 5:22 “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.”

Will Chaz love and protect his wife? Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”

EDITORAIL REVIEW: “A heroine learning to love the man she needs and a hero in love with a woman whose duty is tearing her apart. Together they find the strength to face their fears with love built upon an unshakable faith. Author Paula Rose Michelson captures the complexities of human emotion like few authors I've read. Passion, duty, fear, revenge, courage, prejudice and love are woven into this truly gripping story which so well illustrates that which makes us human.” - William Struse

Readers wonder why should I read your book? 
Your bio is your answer!
Here’s Mine!
The wife of Lutheran Pastor and Chosen People Ministries field missionary, Ron Michelson, while a Church Ministries Coordinator for the mission her husband continues to serve in, Paula Rose Michelson asked God to gift her something unique to do. Little did she know that hearing David Hocking speak about Zion being both the land of Eretz Yisrael (Israel) and the Jewish people would lead her to research what befell the Spanish Jews (Sephardic) before, during and after the Inquisition. Beginning to write, word spread and some Sephardim contacted her to offer their stories. However, Naomi had already begun telling this dyslectic artist about her life, which is now a six volume romantic inspirational faith saga.

Other books - both fiction and nonfiction followed - but at her core, Paula's desire to faithfully depict Gods love, compassion, and forgiveness keeps her writing. And having founded LAMB Ministries in 1988, Paula knows that the biblical tools God taught her, which she faithfully passes on to women suffering from trauma and abuse are needed by all, so she includes a few within the pages of each book.
