Watchful Wednesdays – Christian Authors Book Launch Tour

by Michelle D. Evans

It is such an honour and privilege to be here on Janis’s blog today. Thank you so much for hosting me.Spiralling Out of Control PREVIEW-1

When Janis asked me to write about faith I jumped at the chance. I love talking about faith. Everyone has faith in something. Even atheists have faith in their belief that no higher power exists. Faith is something we hold onto, it gets us through the hard times and it lets us soar in the exciting times.

In my novel Spiralling Out of Control, Stephanie’s family turn up to a traditional church, but where their faith actually is could be questioned.

Do her parents have faith in the church, in the people that go, in the priest or in themselves?

Stephanie doesn’t know herself where her parents’ faith lie and she herself is lost in what she actually believes. Because she is so lost, she jumps at the chance to date a high school senior and puts her faith in him.

I have seen over and over when people put their faith and trust in another person, they are nearly always let down.

Our faith needs to lie in a greater force, a higher power,
greater than any imperfect human being. 

Many people search for years without finding a one true God and unfortunately, by the end of Spiralling Out of Control, Stephanie is still searching but she begins to think her best friend’s faith in God might have some substance.


 Spiralling Out of Control

Temptation, depression, seduction, betrayal … Not what Stephanie was expecting at fifteen years of age. Uprooted from her happy, all-girl high school life with a dream filled future and thrown into an unfriendly co-ed school, Stephanie spirals into depression.

When charismatic high school senior, Jason notices her, Stephanie jumps in feet first and willingly puts all her faith and trust in him, a boy she barely knows.

Every choice she makes and turn she takes leads her towards a dangerous path.

Her best friend is never far away and ready to catch her … but will she push Tabbie too far away when she needs her most?

This novel contains adult themes. Recommended reading audiences 17+

  1. Dear Janis and Michele
    Oh, this is a problem with so many young people who are bombarded with so many religious choices, each one with its own set of fringe benefits, that I actually get quite angry when they get used and abused by quite a few power hungry religious wolves! You are touching a very, very important issue, Michelle. Dear Janis, thank you so much for introducing us to Michelle.
    Blessings XX

I love to connect with you.
