Interview 

Welcome to BK Walker Books Etc. I'm so happy you could join me today.

BK: Tell us about your office. Is it a mess like mine, or is everything in its place? Not the neatest or the messiest, somewhere in between. I love sticky notes with little messages. I have them everywhere! 

BK: What is a must-have, such as coffee or a favorite pen, that you need to write? For some reason, my thoughts flow better with my desktop computer, laptop is second choice. So I really need my desktop! 

BK: Do you like to write in silence, or do you need music or background noise? Silence ..shh! 

BK: Tell us a bit about your hero.
Bishop T.D. Jakes is the person that I think I look up to the most. He is an awesome Man of God. His message delivery is phenomenal and I feel like I already know him although as of yet I only get to interact with him on YouTube. I would so love to meet him in person! 

BK: As a writer myself, I'm always curious how other writers get through stumble blocks. When you find a story not flowing, or a character trying to fight you, how do you correct it? I have to pay attention to fine details. Sometimes I will walk in the park or just get all by myself and say “ Okay. Lord, I need you to speak to me right now!”. 

BK: Using the letters of your first name as an acronym, describe your book...My book encourages you to:  
K-eep the faith, God will do just what he has promised
E-expect only the best 
L-Learn to embrace your waiting period 
L-ive with the expectancy of a miracle every day
I-invest time with God
E-ven if God is not talking, He’s listening. Don’t give up! 

BK: How did your writing journey begin?
As a result of my own suffering with the agony of enduring God’s silence 

BK: Tell us one thing you've done in life that readers would be most surprised to know.---My mother passed away 7 days before I gave birth to twins –the book is dedicated to her although she did not live to see the finished product. 

BK: What can we expect from you in the future? Many speaking engagements, many more books, many more words of life declared over every one of you!

Book trailer:




Book Description: "When God is Silent” confirms through scripture that God indeed hears the cries of
his elect and the broken hearted. The book explains to the reader why he or she may be waiting on the answers to their prayers and how to endure in a season of silence. It also reveals how to recognize "God's answer" if he chooses to answer differently than what we anticipate. The take home message is “ Never Give up! Even if God is not talking he’s still listening”. We must learn to “push, pray, and persist” until we reach the point of breakthrough. God desires to give only the best to his children. We must understand this.


Excerpt:

Introduction

I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You yourself are the answer.
—C. S. Lewis

If you’re reading this book, more than likely you are in what is called a pressed place; a place of waiting. Does it seem as if God has forgotten about you? Has everyone else around you begun to celebrate their miracles, yet you are still crying yourself to sleep at night? Are you feeling a
sense of weariness and emptiness? Have you been praying and crying out to God day in and out and still you see no change? Have you found yourself wondering if God has gone on vacation? Have you been contemplating that perhaps what you are believing God for is not in His will? Well if this describes you, congratulations! You are next in line for a miracle. I decree and declare defeat is not your portion; victory is your portion. Receive it, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

What the enemy wants us to believe is that God will never answer our prayers. The kingdom of darkness works overtime as we get closer to our breakthroughs. Satan and
His generals know that if he can get us to lose our focus, we will not be in position when the fullness of time comes and we will miss the blessing. We must know without a doubt that God is faithful and never fails. We must be certain that even if God is not talking, He’s still listening.

For it is written:

But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
—Psalm 66:19
