QUESTION: Besides RT and RWA, what’s your favorite book convention to attend and why?

Susan Miura said:

I really enjoy Write to Publish because it’s not as huge as some of the others, and it’s easy to connect with editors and agents. The workshops are always excellent, too. It’s held at Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL, which is a 20-minute drive from my house, so that makes it convenient and affordable (no lodging expense). It’s not as fancy as my other favorite – the American Christian Fiction Writers annual conference, but still very nice. I always leave WTP with several proposal requests and new tips and skills to incorporate into my writing.


Healer by Susan Miura cover


[Young Adult]

Hovering just below the surface of Shilo Giannelli’s average existence lays an amazing spiritual power. Late one night, her world erupts with the revelation that, like her great-grandmother, she has The Gift. But the power to heal isn’t something she can share with the soccer team, her genius little sister, or her boyfriend, Kenji. Definitely not Kenji.

?Deep beneath Misty Morning’s tough façade is a lifetime of abandonment, foster homes and broken dreams. When her two-year-old son is abused by her boyfriend, her fragile world shatters…until Shilo prays for Tyler, and he is healed, leaving Misty grateful but incredibly curious.

Shilo can’t give Misty the answers she needs; she only knows she has a God-given destiny, and despite facing strained relationships, impossible decisions, and the threat of being hounded day and night for her abilities, she will fulfill it.

The journey Misty and Shilo take together unites them as friends but invites danger into their lives. And it will take a miracle for these unlikely friends to elude a gang bent on revenge, keep The Gift a secret, trust God in extraordinary circumstances, and hold on to the people they love.
