Long Time Coming by Vanessa Miller

This week the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance introduces
Long Time Coming
Abingdon Press (November 1, 2010)
Vanessa Miller

A note from Angie: Behind the scenes at a ACFW's annual conference, I had the pleasure of meeting Vanessa Miller. We chatted about book marketing and media. We tipped our heads together for ideas and a new friendship. Today I have the pleasure of featuring a new friend on my blog who shares an excellent message for women today. I hope you'll take the time to become her friend by getting to know her through the books she writes. Vanessa is a lovely lady with a heart to share stories that will enhance the lives of her readers. This book is especially poignant to me because I've also dealt with cervical cancer. I luckily survived. But many women find out too late. Please, ladies, get your check up every year. The vaccinations do not protect against everything and should not be your only defense. I'm now 8 years out from a life saving operation and hope you will love yourself and your family enough to care for your health. Take care of yourself so you can take care of them! Please welcome, Vanessa :-)


Vanessa Miller of Dayton, Ohio, is a best-selling author, playwright, and motivational speaker. Her stage productions include: Get You Some Business, Don’t Turn Your Back on God, and Can’t You Hear Them Crying. Vanessa is currently in the process of turning the novels in the Rain Series into stage productions.

Vanessa has been writing since she was a young child. When she wasn’t writing poetry, short stories, stage plays and novels, reading great books consumed her free time. However, it wasn’t until she committed her life to the Lord in 1994 that she realized all gifts and anointing come from God. She then set out to write redemption stories that glorify God.

To date, Vanessa has completed the Rain and Storm Series. She is currently working on the Forsaken series, Second Chance at Love series and a single title, Long Time Coming. Vanessa believes that each book will touch readers across the country in a special way. It is, after all, her God-given destiny to write and produce plays and novels that bring deliverance to God’s people. These books have received rave reviews, winning Best Christian Fiction Awards and topping numerous Bestseller’s lists.


Two women from different worlds find hope together.
Faithful Christian Deidre Clark-Morris is a professional career-minded woman with a loving husband, but no children. Kenisha Smalls has lived in poverty all her life. She has three children by three different men and has just been diagnosed with inoperable cervical cancer.

While the meeting between these two women appears accidental, it becomes their catalyst of hope. Neither woman expects the blessing that God has in store for her. While Deidre will guide Kenisha on the path to eternal life with Jesus Christ, Kenisha will teach Deidre how to stand strong against the hard-knocks of life.
