Welcome to my writing world! I’m Victoria Bylin (aka Vicki), and I write inspirational romance for woman of all ages.My main characters are in their 20s and 30s, but they have moms, dads, siblings,and grandparents with full lives of their own.
My latest book (The Bridge Between Us, August 2022) is Book 3 in the Road to Refuge series, though it can easily be read as a stand-alone. You might remember Jesse Donovan from A Gift To Cherish. Jesse has quite a past, but he’s a new man with a new way of living.
I’m a hybrid author now. That means I’m traditionally published as well as self-published. It also means I’ve been writing for over twenty years now. I’m amazed by that!
The best thing about “going indie” is the freedom to tell stories close to my heart. I love being able to write about God’s grace in tough situations. Sometimes we make our own messes. Other times the messes spring up like traps. Either way, it’s a joy to write about the Christian journey.
The most challenging aspect of self-publishing is getting the word out—and the books into the handsof readers. In order to keep the cost of a paperback book reasonable, I made the decision to publish through Amazon only for both digital and paper. My Road to Refuge books are long, and I couldn’t bear to price them as high as required to make them available on other platforms.
My writing career has morphed a couple of times now. You might have read one of my contemporary romances. Or perhaps you discovered one of my western historicals. Past or present, my favorite kind of story explores love, faith, and romance through the lens of the spiritual 3 R’s--Redemption, Restoration, and Rebirth.
My characters are usually in big trouble when a book opens, which may be why my stories are called realistic and relatable.
