Here We Come, Like it or Not

This week I was browsing along the net when I came across a link to Sarah Sawyer’s blog. The post was about the strong impact small presses are having on the Christian fiction industry. You can view it right here. I agree wholeheartedly, although some may think I’m biased. Well, aren’t we all? I shared […]

Thin Ice

Why do you write? This is the question, isn’t it? The big one every author will answer eventually, whether he wants to or not. Standard answers are “I want to make money” or “I want to be famous” or “I have a message for the world from God” or some combination of those three. Feel […]

Butterflies, Bats and Smack-downs

  So, I am going along in life, minding my own business and WHAM! Anvil drops and I get a one-two punch to the gut that will dictate my life…if I can get up off the dang floor. I call these moments the proverbial smack-down. They are turning points in one’s life where the future […]

Something that had been building up within me and kept me going to this point for about a decade and a half has been this great big epic multi-book story about “vampires” and illustrating Christ through the overall story arc – and […]

Eric Wilson – defeated? The ramifications and what we should do.

Last Friday author Eric Wilson created a flurry of responses on his Facebook Wall and spawned at least two blog entries about it that I am aware of (not including this one) because of a blog entry he put on his site. According to Mike Duran, in an entry he put here, he confirmed what […]

New Author’s Series: Alpha

Do not push play until instructed to do so!!   One of the most intriguing and controversial entries in the Marcher Lord Premise Contest was Alpha by P. A. Baines.  I must admit, it was I who started the controversy… but it had to be done.  For me, the question needed to be answered, and judging from […]
