Redhead of the Week an Inspiration

On Terri Blackstock's website, our fifty-two-year-old Redhead of the Week calls herself a Christian fiction writer, but her bestseller status needs no qualification. Blackstock’s books have sold six million copies worldwide, and often debut at number one on the Christian fiction best-seller lists. Last year's TRUE LIGHT popped number one and we hear her new one -- INTERVENTION -- will do the same on September 22. Pre-sale numbers look awesome.

In 1994, Blackstock wrote for HarperCollins, Harlequin and Silhouette, but she says a spiritual awakening drew her into the Christian market. Her most recent books are the four in her popular Restoration Series, which includes Last Light, Night Light, True Light and Dawn’s Light.

Here's a blurb on the new one: Barbara Covington has one more chance to save her daughter from a devastating addiction, by staging an intervention. But when eighteen-year-old Emily disappears on the way to drug treatment—and her interventionist is found dead at the airport—Barbara enters her darkest nightmare of all.

“Veteran Christian suspense author Blackstock seamlessly interweaves family drama with riveting crime stories. She is clearly one of the best in this genre …” Library Journal

I congratulate her on very savvy branding. See a market and fill it.
Brilliant.
