About This Club

This group will be for - as the title suggests - books that we don't quite know how to categorize. For example, my writing is in the Christian romantic fiction section, but with added suspense to make it a bit more interesting. I call the genre [romantic fiction] but I usually add that there's also suspense in the story.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. That was mostly written off the top of my head. That happens sometimes.
  3. What do you think of this cover? I made it last week. I would stop making & sharing book covers, but I have so many photos to use up. Plus I bought the photo-editing program I use for it. It'd be a huge waste of money.
  4. Marching down the long hallway lined with closed doors, keeping her chin elevated and her back straight, Marilyn R-- attempted to calm her rapidly beating heart as she approached the single [door] that normally evoked intense emotions. She usually looked forward to seeing the man who occupied the corner office. Not this time. He didn’t sound at all happy with me when he told me he needed to see me as soon as I got in this morning. Never mind that she walked passed his open office door repeatedly some days. Or asked her coworkers to allo her the privilege of taking him h
  5. So this book/story has been "in the wings" for quite some time. Like most of my other ideas/projects, actually. As I said previously, it will no longer be in a trilogy. Actually, I don't think the trilogy is going to happen. But I do have projects just waiting for me to work on them. *sighs sadly* If only I could concentrate on them.
  6. My problem with The Shack is that it is presented as Christian fiction and horribly distorts Biblical doctrine. For that reason, I wouldn't recommend anyone reading it.
  7. Sorry, I have to disagree with you here. You are correct it does include 'new age' ideology, but it also includes Buddhism, Hinduism and a dollop of native American Indian beliefs. I would argue about the writer passing all of these off under the sole label of 'Christianity' (which he also alludes too). The main notions of a monological God, suffering and evil, & a paradise or Nirvana, is commonplace amongst many other religions so you could say he does under the disguise of Buddhism. I only offered it up as a possible read simply because the nature of the thre
  8. Ah. I see what you're saying. I was trying to match the red in the water with the titles - and tie them altogether.
  9. Thanks. These were fairly early on after I first obtained Photoshop. They are better-looking than most I had made before getting it. I'm honestly not sure what you mean about the titles not showing. Perhaps I could have added a drop shadow behind the words. It's too late now. I don't have Photoshop any longer and can't alter them without it. *shrugs* Thanks, @HK1
  10. Size is fine.The first and second ones are rather dark and the titles don't show up very well. But actually a nice job.
  11. I've thought about reading/watching The Shack, but never have gotten around to it. It's not too available around here, anyway. @HK1, thanks for the warning. I usually watch "Christian" tv or movies assuming they probably won't be too close to the real thing. Except for the Left Behind series starring Kirk Cameron and now Sherwood Pictures.
  12. @KR LaLonde, I wouldn't read The Shack. I've heard some really bad stuff about it. It's basically a bunch of New Age writings disguised as Christianity.
  13. I wish I could make these show up smaller. I feel as if I'm slapping people by sharing them so big. They're in the wrong order, though. Sorry about that. Oh. I guess they aren't that big after all.
  14. It has been done before but that does not mean you shouldn't. My advice would be to 1st be clear about who and what your non-believe is. Are they an agonist or atheist? Were they brought up in a religious home (and if so which religion - it does not necessarily have to be a christian household - even if it was - which denomination or church tradition?) or not. There are plenty of books written that challenge the existence of God as well as one by people who were non-believers who came to faith. If they are to convince or try to convince their christian partner then y
  15. So, a writer friend of mine on Facebook and I are discussing this. We might write it together. Co-authors of a Christian romance. The two of us. Wow.
  16. A new idea came to mind. It's not something "normal" for a lot of people today. But IMO it's fairly open to any and all who wish to participate. Marriage between a Christian and a non-believer. Except in this story, the Christian resists. What do you think?
  17. Well, I've been hesitant to write in this story (don't ask me why because I don't know). I've even considered an alternative title for it: Dating a Computer. You'd understand better if I would write and get the story moving. Also, this will be a stand-alone title (whether I change it or not). The trilogy just isn't working out. I might change my mind when I've written more, but right now I don't see the trilogy happening. Even though I did come up with a fairly decent title for it. The third book has a title, as well. The second one is giving me some trouble. I'm not ex
  18. Something strange I've noticed--.... What was I going to say? *yells at self (in her head) trying to remember*
  19. First of all, GOOD DAY TO YOU! Unless it's after 12pm. Then I'll say GOOD AFTERNOON or GOOD EVENING!! Secondly, I'd like to again say I hope to participate here more often. I'll admit, though, it's not always an easy thing to do because I usually think what I write is closer to trash than worth keeping. Although I usually keep it anyway because I'll remember what not to write. Thirdly, I am going to try very hard to have something worth sharing written by the end of this week. That's Saturday, by the way.
  20. I would share more, but just that one bit was pretty long. I don't want to overdo it.
  21. I really like this part. God uses the things that happen to us for His glory. I know this. I've lived this. In those hard times, I didn't see it, but now, looking back, I've been able to talk to other people with a lot deeper understanding because I've been through similar hard times. And because of that, I'm able to point them to Him. He's doing the same thing in your life. He's going to use your writing. He probably already has. Keep at it There are people out there that He's prepared you to reach.
