***Update*** Contest is now closed. Congrats Carman, she had the most referrals. We’ll be in touch!!

***Update*** Contest will run through Sunday, Midnight Pacific Time and I’ll contact the winner Monday

Welcome Michelle Sutton to the Light of Truth blog. Whoo-Hoo. Thanks for stoppin’ by. You’re crazy busy with bunches of books coming out. That’s awesome.

So hey, we picked out a few questions to ask ya, have fun with them.

And for those of you stoppin’ by, be sure to read to the end, because there’s a contest to win an AUTOGRAPHED COPY of one of Michelle’s books.

So, let the fun begin:

1) When you get a story in your head, what’s the first thing you do?

I mull it over in my mind. Kind of like talking to myself in my head. What do they look like? What is the conflict going to be? Stuff like that. I’ve had stories simmering in my head for up to three years before I’ve written them down.

2) If you could have dinner with any author from any era, who would it be and why?

I’d probably pick Francine Rivers because her books have really touched me deep inside. I’d like to talk to her about how she made the decision to leave the sexy fiction behind and follow the Lord’s call on her life. I heard her speak at a conference in 2004, but it wasn’t a two way exchange like you’d have with someone over a meal.

3) Dean Koontz and Steven King walk into the elevator with you, what would you do?

I might recognize Steven King. Maybe. I don’t know what Dean Koontz looks like. I would probably ask him what he is working on next.

4) Okay, you read many genres, and you know my heart lies with paranormal/supernatural…Could you humor me and tell me what is your favorite novel in that genre?

The last book I read and loved that fell under that category would be The Firstborn. Amazing story and well worth my time to read. I was totally sucked in to the story world that Conlan Brown created. For me, that is no easy feat when there is no romantic tension involved. In the story there was very little romance but a whole lot of warfare going on.

Thanks, Michelle, it was fun havin’ you here.

Her books **Yep, two of them. I told ya she was busy** coming out are “It’s Not About Him” and “Danger At The Door.” Check them out:


It’s Not About Him, by Michelle Sutton

September 1st 2009 by Sheaf House

Susie passed out while drinking at Jeff’s party and later discovered she’s pregnant. She has no idea who the father is and considers having an abortion, but instead decides to place her baby for adoption. Following through ends up being more wrenching than she imagined, but she’s determined to do the right thing for her baby.

Jeff feels guilty that Susie was taken advantage of at his party and offers to marry her so she won’t have to give up her baby, like his birth mother did with him. But Susie refuses, insisting he should he marry someone he loves. Can he convince her that his love is genuine before it’s too late? Can she make him understand that it’s not about him—it’s about what’s best for her child?


Danger at the Door PicDanger at the Door, by Michelle Sutton
August 1, 2009 by Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc.

Upon her fiancé’s death, Laney became a recluse who only left her home for emergencies. She managed to survive – barely – on food delivery service and her work-at-home job. When she tries to move on from her grief, the commemorative meal she orders is ruined. However, it leads to an unlikely friendship with an attractive man, Bojan, who speaks little English.

As he befriends Laney he continually says the wrong things, but he doesn’t give up trying to win her trust. Meanwhile, she has this strange feeling of being watched and wonders if she’s losing her mind.

Complicating things further, every time she leaves her house something bad happens, confirming that she is safer at home. Can Bojan convince Laney she’ll be safe with him, or will his presence put her in further danger? Will he be able to protect the woman he loves before it’s too late?


Okay, so here’s the contest **there’s a twist, so read on**

To win an autographed (Yep–AUTOGRAPHED) copy of It’s Not About Him, leave a comment, **but here’s the twist**, the winner will be whoever can generate THE MOST comments. So, be sure to tell everyone you know to come leave a comment, naming WHO referred them, and the one with the most will win the autographed copy.  ☺  {{If there is a tie. The names go into a hat and the winner is picked the good ‘ol fashioned way.}}



  1. Thank you so much! I’m so excited to read this book! I’ve wanted to ever since I read the first one, forever ago! Now I get to! YAY!
    Thank you to all my amazing friends, who helped me win! Also, thank you Lynn, and Michelle for doing the contest!

  2. Hey! Carman sent me to this sight to help her win a book! I told her that I would do anything in order to win a book! 🙂

  3. well, l dont know anyone who will comment besides me for me, if ya know what l mean.. as Michelle and l hve many of the same friends. l have know Michelle since 3rd grade, yes indeed that is a lllloooonnnggg time. l love her writing and l sure hope l can win her book asl will not be able to buy it, l am on disability. Percy, as Michelle calls me….

  4. The five people above are different people, its a family who are friends of mine. They just used the same email. If they can’t all count I understand. Just wanted to let you know I’m not making people up!

  5. I would ask to have my name added to the drawing, but I’ve already read, It’s Not About Him. Let someone else who hasn’t read it yet have a chance to read this fabulous story. In fact, I’ve read most of Michells’ stories before they were ever published. I can’t wait to reread, Danger At The Door, because she told me she changed it quite a bit since I read it. Gotta get my hands on it, that’s for sure.

    Keep up the awesome work, Michelle.

  6. Hay I have read It’s not about me and I totally LOVED it. I just HAVE to read the next one. My first book was autographed. I couldn’t put it down or turn the pages fast enough. i love it. Thanks for a great read !

  7. Melissa Meeks invited me to take a peak at this contest. When I got here and found it was Michelle I was ecstatic. You see I critiqued Danger at the Door (under a different name at that time). Miss Sutton is a fantastic writer with a fantastic writing career ahead of her. She’s one of those people that during an introduction you can say, “It is my great honor to introduce to you someone who needs no introduction.” I am a mystery writer and she had just enough of everything in this work. I’m sure she’s done the same with It’s Not about Him.

    I really don’t expect to win a book. I’ve already won a friend, and that’s more important. Those of you who haven’t read her yet will be glad when you do.

  8. Carman: Oh, and sure, they can stop by and say “Hey, so and so told me to stop by” they don’t have to leave a massive message. It’s all good. 🙂

    Have fun spreading the word everyone. Let’s get some hype going for Michelle’s books. They rock. She’s a talented writer!! Whoo-Hoo!!

  9. I have read both “Danger at the Door” and “Its Not About Me”, and loved them! I’m exicted to read this book, and hope to win!

    P.S. When the person you told about this comments, do they have to just say “This person told me to comment, and I did”. Or do they have to leave a long comment? Just checking. Thanks!

  10. Kat, I’ll do the same 🙂 Wish I was at work today LOL

    Great interview, Lynn. Michelle is awesome!!!

    I knew about “It’s not about him” but I hadn’t seen her “Danger at the door”


  11. I suppose I can’t go to all of the different computers here at the library and at work to leave anonymous comments saying they were referred by me, huh?

    🙂 Just kidding.

    I’ll do my part. These sound like good reads.
