#ThursdayThoughts with Erin Unger & a #Giveaway

Good Morning and Welcome to the LAST Thursday Thoughts of 2018!

I pray your Christmas was the Merriest of All. Erin Unger shared treasures with us last month so PLEASE welcome her back as she shares some thoughts with us.....

Can you imagine being transported into another world—I’m not talking fantasy or time travel—but a real-life opportunity to live out of your comfort zone in a place unfamiliar to you? I’ve often dreamed of this. I want to stay at a ranch and cook over a hearth fire. And the idea of staying in New York City and living one day in the life of an executive CEO is so intriguing. I’ve even considered trying to find a living museum where I could dress in colonial clothing to live a few days in the 1700s. Just to experience life through someone else’s eyes draws my imagination to new heights. I guess that’s what makes me a writer. I put on paper what I can only dream of doing.

In my upcoming release, Desolate Paths, Brooke Hollen enters a rehab center where she has no choice but to literally live in the past. If she’d read the full website, she’d wouldn’t have been shocked to land in a living museum where the residents work as they get treatment. And that means wearing accurate, antique garb and cooking in a kitchen with no electricity, among many other chores done by hand with no modern-day conveniences. Can you imagine how she must feel leaving the present day in order to heal? Just imagine it for a moment...

What about you? Have you ever had a chance to experience life from a totally different perspective? Tell me about it in the comments below for a chance to win a $5 Amazon Gift Card.

Erin Unger was raised in the hills of Virginia, exploring abandoned houses and reading the scariest books she could find. After marrying so young it would make a great romance novel, she has enjoyed an exciting life with her hubby. But her fast-paced life sometimes rivals the suspense in her books thanks to all her mostly grown children and a couple grandkids. Her romantic suspesne novel, Desolate Paths, releases January 11, 2019.

Thanks for having me Pamela!

Hi Erin,

Your book sounds amazing! I don't think I've ever been immersed in a different culture. I have taught VBS on a Navajo reservation, so that would be the closest to experiencing another way of life.
All the best to you. Happy new year.

Erin Unger said...

Oooh, that must've been a neat experience, Barbara. Did they react differently to you? Or were they in our culture enough to be Americanized.

Carol James said...

Hi, Erin, Your book sounds fascinating. I lived in the UK for several years, and even though there are are cultural differences, we are more the same than not. However, I spent a few weeks working in China, and though the time was limited, the cultural differences were vast. Needless to say, this Georgia girl was thankful for the opportunity, but ready to come home.

Celebrating with you already for your upcoming release. First thing that came to mind was our visit to Jamestown as a family several years ago. As we stood on the same ground as those first settlers, the staff dress in period clothing and discuss with guests what it was like for these heroic early Americans. Great education. Very engaging and accurate portrayal of hardships and blessings.

Hi Erin,

Where we were on the Navajo reservation, was fairly Americanized. other tribes nearby were less so.

Erin Unger said...

Thanks Carol. You have really travelled! England is on my must see list. We went to Ireland a few years ago. Loved it!!!

Erin Unger said...

We live a couple hours from Jamestown and have been several times. What a great way to view colonial life. I love it there.

I am so curious about American Indian culture. My 4th book coming out this coming year is based on the Monacan tribe.
