One popular genre in Christian publishing right now is split-time fiction. Split-time fiction is when you tell two stories separated by time that are connected in some way, sometimes by a theme or an item. Some popular split-time books include The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck in the Christian market and The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah in the secular market. 

While writing one story is hard, writing two separate but connected stories is even harder. So how do you do it? And, more importantly, how do you do it well? 

We have a special guest to help us with that question. She is an award-winning author of more than twenty novels. She is also the author of A Split in Time: How to Write Dual Timeline, Split Time, and Time-Slip Fiction (Affiliate Link).
