Many readers are surprised and even confused when they see I’m the most prolific writer in the area of screenwriting, an international screenwriting consultant and a screenwriting teacher and yet > I also do theology/spiritual books. Some of this comes from having an M.A. In Drama, 2 M.A.s in theology and a ThD in…
Title: A Lady in Defiance (Romance in the Rockies #1)
Author: Heather Blanton
Publisher: Rivulet Publishing
My rating is 4 stars.
A Lady in Defiance can best be described as a raw look at the Old West with a multitude of themes. As I read, I sensed the spiritual warfare, evil, hate and yet the blossoming of hope for those who knew none. On some pages scenes were described with too much detail that embarrassed this…Continue
Do you have a book about to be released? This is an exciting time to wait for the arrival of your new book. Like being pregnant and waiting the birth of your child. My new book about to be released is "Bible Characters Through the Ages Adam in the Garden Book 1. Two children make a time travel machine out of a refrigerator box, and go back to meet the Bible characters. Do you have a book about to be released?Continue
As I was preparing our annual "BC Year in Review" survey this morning, it occurred to me that some authors might be interested in asking our readers some questions. Large and diverse, our club not only appreciates the generosity of the authors who have made themselves available for our questions but our members also enjoy sharing their own opinions about Christian literature. If you would like to pose a question to our group, reply to this post and I'll include it in the survey that our group will fill out at our August 17th special event. After the results are compiled and tabulated, I'll post the results here later in August. Thanks,SandiContinue
It seems to me that a few authors took this in a different direction than was my original intent.This is a network of readers. Literally more than 80% of us are readers here....I think that this discussion has been good and after reading the last posts, I believe we have shifted from our original intent.Maybe we have said all we can say about this.I will say that the discussion started out with readers expressing their views about what they would or would not read (or buy) and turned into a reader bashing discussion about a few bad reviewers. Maybe that would best be a discussion for another forum?Besides I did get a few complaints from readers here about the posts lately so I have shut this one down.********************************************This morning I was looking at discussions on Michelle Sutton's Ning page "Edgy Christian Writers" and one discussion was about cussing in a Christian book.Some were saying it hurt "the reality" of a character like a gang member, if they didn't…Continue
This past year, for the first time, I did several reviews. I am uncertain if I should consider these as Barter and therefore, be subject to taxation under the IRS rules. How do the rest of you handle this? As a Christian, I want to do the right thing.Thanks for any input.Continue
Tonight’s episode of NCIS was another trendy episode featuring the problem of international victimization of women through sex trafficking. It is reminiscent of the movie with Liam Neeson, “Taken,” which showed much more brutal aspects of these cases. Once again, Ellie Bishop is in the lead role with mere cameo appearances by Tim McGee and Tony DiNozzo. We viewers are asked to believe that as an NSA analyst Ellie worked on a former task force that investigated an international trafficking ring along with the FBI and others. To us, it would be more believable if Special Agents McGee, DiNozzo, or even Gibbs had worked the previous case. Oh well, it seems the writers aren’t going for believability these days. Some humor abounds despite the grim topic. Lighter scenes involve the Arctic cold hitting the Washington, D.C.…Continue

But what do we know about the Holy Spirit?My name is Molly Noble Bull, and I am a multi-published Christian novelist. I can’t go into all the world to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, but my books can.I don’t know as much about the Holy Spirit as I should. It is for that reason that I am writing this discussion. What do you know about the Holy Spirit?Let’s talk about it.Mollywww.mollynoblebull.comContinue

I've read part 1 which is Esther and Henry. I don't know where I found this book therefore do not know where to go back. It must be old because I have stood on my head and can't find it any ideas?Continue
So, we are starting a book club and were deciding on books. We all agreed we did not want any doctrinal books, but then the one lady said she did not want any Christian fiction either. i did pick out a couple that are not the typical "Christian fiction" types..... and at least one is on the list. Have you run into this often? People tend to think of christian fiction as either badly written books, not controversial enough, or too preachy....What things do you do to combat that? Continue

Our latest Sponsor, GraphicStock is offering this free 7 day deal and YES they asked me for a credit card when I signed up for it, and YES I would have had to remember to cancel at the end of the trial, or they would have charged me $49 a month...
However, when I signed up for this (I am always looking for graphics for book covers and the magazine) There was a limited time offer for unlimited downloads for $99 a year and so guess what I did?
YES I signed up for that!
We love it and YES they paid us to promote them... but we also became a customer and you should consider it yourself, if you have a blog, or create Memes for social networking or if you create book covers... It is the best deal we have found.
By the way, I created a Graphic Stock Group, where we can share the creative ways we use the images and tips as well as creative contests.
