A Little More Grace

If you know anything about Christian Speculative Fiction, you will have heard the name Grace Bridges and Splashdown Books. As a matter of fact, I may have mentioned them a time or ten. Through the last year I have come not only familiar, but quite fond of both. Why? Because Grace is extraordinary. The pictures […]

Marketing, selling, and other unsavoury activities

According to management guru Peter Drucker, “The aim of marketing is to make selling unnecessary.” In the book “Principles of Marketing” by Kotler et al., it is described as “the process by which companies create customer interest in goods or services.” Okay, so I think I get this. Marketing is a way of interacting with […]

The New NAF Member

Most of the readership here may not realize that I’m the person who founded NAF back in January and now I serve as Admin.  That’s fancy talk for saying, I have to put up with the eccentricities of a whole community of moody, quirky, and headstrong authors who are all very talented and all very […]

Yet more excuses not to write

I’ve been trying my best to think of something interesting to tell you in the lead up to Alpha (sorry, Alpha Redemption) being let loose on an unsuspecting world. I was hoping to have some fascinating snippets of esoteric information to share with you regarding the arcane inner workings of the publication business. The only […]
