Congratulations on this recognition. A Readers Award is more prestigious in my mind than most of the others.

After seeing the results of the poll on where we buy our books I can see why our local book store is closing. So sad. It just won't be the same without a Christian bookstore in town. I purchased a lot of items there besides books.

Hi , I'm Summer & I am new to the writing world ! I have always loved to write but never tried a novel or anything ,so a lot of it is really new to me! As far as the basics like setting up my laptop to write & such . It can be pretty overwhelming at times! Any advice on the basics would be wonderful :)

Hi, I'm Kay.  I'm a writing vet--working on book #39.  My word of encouragement?  If you want to be a writer, write.  Write and write and write some more.  Everyone gets better and better.  No one gets worse and worse.
