Lost In NashVegas


Greetings everyone from sunny central Florida. My name is Rachel Hauck and I’d like to thank Deidre for giving me space on her blog to talk about my new book, Lost In NashVegas.

Ever have a dream only to be hindered by doubt or fear? Meet my character, Robin Rae McAfee, a small town Alabama girl who has a secret desire to become a Nashville songwriter.

One problem. She’s afraid to sing in front of people.

Fear is something we all face in life. Some more than others. Fear is a strange and cruel enemy. It grips us when we least expect it. I did not grow up fearful. Well, other than when I watched the Wizard of Oz – at night no less – then couldn’t sleep because I imagined the wicked witch appearing in my room. But in my early twenties, I was hit with “sudden fear.” Today we know it as a panic attack, but in the eighties, I had no idea what was happening to me.

I used some of my emotions and experiences to describe fictional Robin Rae’s journey as she battles her fears to realize her dream. Unlike my fictional character, something in me refused to surrender to fear. I inherently knew if I did, fear would begin to win and one day, I might be afraid to walk out my front door.

But, I had plans for my life. Don’t we all? Do you have plans that fear or doubt are hindering? Is the busyness or cruelty of life snuffing out your dreams and hopes.

Don’t let fear or doubt win. Overcome. Talk to others, get help. You’ll be glad you did. For me, prayer and believing what the Bible said about peace and love were key ingredients to defeating fear.

So, what does a hopeful but fearful young woman from Alabama do when she arrives in Nashville to make her mark as the next great songwriter? Does she face her fears? Does she overcome? What do you think?

Check out Lost In NashVegas in stores now. Grace and peace, and abundant blessings to Deidre of letting me stop by today.

Hi all,

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the plug, Deidre!

Carrie, it does sound a lot like Coyote Ugly, but I never saw the movie. I didn't even know what the movie was about until after I started writing the book. Someone mentioned it to me. :)

But there are other plot twists and fun stuff. So, I hope it's not much like Coyote Ugly. :)

Hey, Kristen... ;)
