Love Your Book

Love Your Book

I read a lot of inde- and self-published novels. Not as many as I would like, but that’s true of reading in general. Still, though, a lot. Some of them are exceptional. Some of them, I can tell the author invested a lot in honing his or her craft, hiring an editor and cover designer, […]

Perspective

I’m reading a book right now–well, actually I’m in the middle of about four books, but this particular one is called 30,000 Teachers, by Faith Fitt. It’s a true story about a woman who, after a difficult break-up, moves to China as a teacher and to share the love of God. The story is fun […]

Looking Back at NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, is over. In some ways, that’s a huge relief, and in others, it’s a disappointment. The goal, of course, is to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November. I’ve completed it some years. I’ve gotten close others. Last year I didn’t even try. This year, I gave […]
