More About Rebeca Seitz & Brooke Sanford
Rebeca Seitz loves to scrapbook (while drinking copious amounts of caffeine). And read. And write. And sew. And quilt. And learn. And hang out with girlfriends. And laugh. And tell stories about her crazy husband and crazier kiddos. And...well, by then the caffeine's worn off and she heads to bed. She's been in the publishing industry for many years as a literary publicist, securing media placement in places like The Today Show and USA Today for astounding authors of amazing fiction.
In 2006, after opening the doors of her own PR firm, getting married to the love of her life Charles, and giving birth to her first child, Anderson DeBoard, Rebeca decided to reach beyond publicity and join the ranks of Christian novelists. Together with Alive Communications, she sold her first novel specifically for the scrapbooking world, Prints Charming, to Thomas Nelson Publishers. Creating a world of girlfriends and scrapbooking was such fun, she then signed on to write four more scrapbooking novels, this time for B&H Publishing Group (LifeWay). Sisters, Ink (Scrapbooker's Series #1) the first novel in the series, released in February 2008. A second book in the series, Coming Unglued, released later that year.
With the caffeine at maximum levels, Rebeca also finished her Master's degree at Murray State University, gave birth to her second child, Ella Christie, and was honored to move her representation to the Steve Laube Literary Agency.
Two more novels, Scrapping Plans (Scrapbookers, Book 3) and later Perfect Piece, hit stores in 2009. After crafting a world where women came together to scrapbook, Rebeca realized how important her girlfriends were to her stability and growth as a wife and mom and her enjoyment of this adventure we call, "life." When she moved to a new area, she learned just how hard it can be to find those kinds of girlfriends and - being her usually over-caffeinated self - decided to help other women in the same predicament. Thus, Sisters, Ink the community was born.
These days, you can find Rebeca under the oak trees in her front yard, yelling at the laptop as she works on her next novel. If she's not there, check the backyard or the lake. Or, okay, the kitchen - chocolate stash is on top of the fridge. And if you happen to hear kiddo giggles, you might want to go to the barn in her back pasture - I'll bet she and her little ones have found another batch of kittens.

Kendra has some deep seeded problems. Dark secrets and pain that she just can't seem to release. Her decisions in life are often not wise choices as her conception of herself is anything but good due to her troubling past. Thank God she has her sisters, and those around her that care and are ready to step up to the plate and do battle for her happiness. She will learn what is important in life and the importance of those who love her, but her way to that decision will not be an easy one.
In this novel we enter the life of Kendra and her sisters, boyfriends, family and friends. We travel with them as mysteries are unraveled, hidden emotions and deep sorrows are brought forth, problems confronted and battles fought and won. It is a story of family, unity and learning to let go at times when it isn't easy to do so, and hold on when that is even harder to do. It is a story of sharing, and learning when it is important to keep silent. It is a story of life, love, and commitment, right, wrong and the grey in-between.
I liked this book. It was at times very upbeat and at other times very serious and mysterious. Kendra's deep emotional turmoil boiled and bubbled until you knew it would explode like a heated volcano. Good job. The characters were very realistic and the twists and turns of their lives keep the story flowing nicely. The author did a great job pulling you into the storyline and keeping you moving along with each event that transpired,and the ending was great. Very good book.
Great addition to the Ink family! Aug 16, 2008
This is such a clever series of books with the common bond of family but the roots of such unique beginnings. The 4 sisters are adopted into the same family when they are young and each book follows one of the sisters as an adult. The first book followed Tandy as she came back home to Stars Hill, Tennessee where the rest of the family resides. In book two we follow Kendra as she picks up with Tandy in their new business "Sisters, Ink" a scrapbooking business that the sisters are doing together.
Kendra is a unique individual that cracks me up, but she has a rough past that keeps wanting to derail her from being happy as an adult. I really enjoyed following her as she tries to sort everything out. She keeps trying to sabotage herself and I think that is true in so many people's lives.
It is a great addition to the fun Sisters, Ink series - get your copy now!
2nd book in series about sisters is a winner Aug 4, 2008
Coming Unglued by Rebeca Seitz is the second book in the Sisters Ink series. This book focuses on Kendra, one of the four Sinclair sisters. Kendra was adopted at the age of eight after being raised by her mother Sylvia. Sylvia allowed herself and her daughter to be abused by a veritable parade of men, and Kendra hasn't been able to break free from the demons that haunt her about her past and tell her that she isn't worth a good man. She's torn between two men: a married man who tells her how much he loves her, and a good Christian man, Kendra is sure she doesn't deserve. The sisters recognize Kendra's self-destructive behavior and regularly convene scrapbooking nights in order to encourage and interrogate her. Each sister is struggling with her own spiritual troubles, and Seitz does a great job of juggling all of the different plots. But Seitz really shines with the dialogue between the sisters, and Kendra's internal voices that whisper she's no good. This entry didn't focus as heavily on scrapbooking as the previous entry did, but the plot is fantastic.
Wonderful Forgiveness and Love Jul 24, 2008
"Coming Unglued" is nothing short of fabulous. It is an absolute page turner for me that I could not put down until the very end that left me with tears. As book two of a Sisters, Ink novel it does well and could be read as a stand alone although it does continue where "Sisters, Ink" left off with a focus on Kendra (book one is a focus on Tandy). This story is about forgiveness and seeing sins as what they really are and growing as an individual and as a person leaving the past as what it is. I'm not sure that anyone could read this story without related a little bit or possibly a lot to the pain of what is going on. But it is amazing how things that seem like there is no solution can be worked out in a manner or form. This book is by far going on my keeper shelf and I cannot wait for the next books in the series to follow along with the other sisters in their journeys of life. Like the first book there was a confusion of a double take with a name swap or two, but it doesn't take away from the story much at all if you're paying attention and caught up in what is happening. I'd recommend this read to anyone really, especially someone in need of some healing and romance. You might be a little surprised at what you can learn about yourself through the lives of these fabulous characters.
A charming novel Jul 13, 2008
Rebeca Seitz has penned a charming chick-lit novel. From the cover art that looks like a page in a scrapbook, "Coming Unglued" lays out the story of Kendra Sinclair, one of the four scrapbooking Sinclair Sisters (say that five times fast). In this modern interracial love story, Kendra has a decision to make about the second most important relationship in her life. Loving the wrong guy feels right, and loving the right guy feels wrong because of her past.
Although it didn't captivate me as I believe it would have if I had read the previous "Sisters, Inc." novel, it was well written story with likable characters and solid Christian values. The message of forgiveness is woven deeply through the novel. The example of the beauty of Christian sisters is inspiring to the reader as well.
