I just discovered that my soon-to-be-released children's picture book, The Bunny Side of Easter, will be carried by Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million!  So happy about this!

Hey, y'all! I'm the new kid on the block, although I've been around this publishing gig for donkey's years. Just wanted to jump in and say Hey!

This one's technically non-fiction that reads like fiction. Definitely from a Christian worldview, but the focus is more coming-of-age. (PG-13)

Eighteen-year-old Angeli doesn't "fit in." She's never been on a single date, and she lives vicariously through an online world of storytelling. With the pressures of choosing a practical future path bearing down, she needs a drastic change. Too old to run away from home, she opts instead to embark on a solo 2-month road trip. But her freedom is tempered by loneliness - and anxiety tests her resolve as she comes face-to-face with her quirky internet friends.

Aside from contracting mono and repeatedly getting herself lost, Angeli's adventure is mired by more unforeseen glitches - like being detained by Canadian authorities, and a near-death experience at the hands of an overzealous amateur wrestler. Her odyssey is complicated further when she unwittingly earns the affections of two young men. One a privileged martial artist; the other a talented techie with a colorful past.

Bewildered by the emotions they stir, Angeli spurns the idea of a doomed long-distance relationship. But she is unprepared for the determination of her hopeful suitors. In the wake of her refusal, one man will betray her, and the other will prove himself worthy of a place in her future.

Angeli sets off in search of a better understanding of herself, the world, and her place in it. What she finds is an impractical love, with the potential to restore her faith in happy endings.

A true story with an unapologetically honest outlook on life, love, faith, and adventure - Once Upon A Road Trip is a coming-of-age memoir.

The way I write and the way I tend to do things, opportunities like this don't come along every day, but Inktera just asked if I'd join an experiment they are doing on their "TribBooks", "Inktera" and "IndieReader" apps (available on Google Play and Apple App Store). They have reduced the price of all three of my books to $.99 for 7 days, and offering just 10 copies each at that price as part of the experiment! That's "Dressed for Eternity", "A Year in Prayer With Jesus", and "Practical Thoughts on Becoming an Author", 10 copies of each one, $.99 per copy and only for 7 days or as long as supplies last. All three books are at this link here: Their TribBooks app is here: and their Inktera app is here:

Hi, I'm a new member of this group and a debut novelist.  My historical fiction, THE RUBY RING which is set in the early English Reformation, was published just over a year ago.  So far it's won a Finalist award in the 2014 Indie Excellence Awards in the Religious Fiction category.

Since I'm also a missionary in Hong Kong, and have been for nearly 40 years, I wasn't blessed by having contact with other authors who could guide me on my way to publication.   Now I could use some guidance in promotional matters - things I can do while serving God full-time in HK.

Long story short - I joined this group in the hopes of benefiting from your knowledge and experience.
