ARDL May Bonus: Inside Publishing with Teresa Tysinger


Thinking about becoming an author and need an overview of the publishing paths? Curious as to how that book went from idea to entertainment? 

Kristi and Lindsey sit down with Teresa Tysinger to talk the pros, cons, similarities, and differences between independent publishing, small press, and large houses. And yes, we’ll define those terms for you as well. 

Join us as we answer one of our most asked questions: How did you get published? 

Meet Teresa Tysinger

Teresa Tysinger is an author of Southern contemporary romance inspired by grace. She writes on the fringes of being a wife, mom, and full-time communications professional. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, the Association for Women in Communications, and the Religion Communicators Council. She’s an introverted Enneagram 4 (if you know, you know) and loves coffee, traveling, and almost every genre of music. Born in Hawaii, raised in Florida, and educated in North Carolina, she now resides in Texas with her husband, daughter, and dog.

Someone Found

Life’s detours can be the most important steps we’re meant to make. Injured and stranded, hiker Quinn McAlister is stuck recovering in Laurel Cove, North Carolina. The quiet mountain town and its polite residents are a far cry from the stifling home and painful disappointments back in Maine. When her handsome rescuer offers her a place to stay, she’s faced with coming to terms with her past and putting faith, for once, in a hopeful future. Camp director Eli Moreland has devoted his adult life to serving others. The summer takes an unexpected turn when the beautiful hiker staying in one of the cabins sparks a deep desire for more. Giving her advice about faith comes easy. What’s hard is deciding if he’s ready to reopen his heart to love. Being lost is worth the pain when being found is so sweet.
