  1. You can receive a free Advance Reader Copy of the book and then post a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or your blog upon release, if you want. :D
  2. I'm searching for writers/readers who would like to receive an Advance Reader Copy of my novel, The One Who Rocked Away, and to join my launch team. Preferably, I'd like writers/readers who enjoy my genre (Christian Romance); this way, there's a greater chance for me to join your launch team. As a writer, this could be beneficial to you if you want to see how someone runs a launch team. My launch team is through a Facebook Group. If interested, click on the image below: If you have questions before joining, feel free to reply to this topic.
  3. Wonderful! Thank you, @Kyoung! I just sent you the invite to the Google Doc.
  4. Hello! I'm looking for a few more beta readers for my Christian Second Chance Romance Novel (cover is attached). This is the book blurb: This is a story About making music, And touching the supernatural. About creating art, And embracing the radical. About taking risks, And rejecting the typical. About choosing love, And forgiving the prodigal. This is the story of childhood sweethearts, Nolan and Serene, Who painted and played glimpses of heaven, Lost themselves in all the fame and wonder, And found themselves still longing to be together. The novel will be available for beta reading by the end of the month. If interested, kindly fill out this form: Beta Reader Agreement.
  5. Book 2 of The Sacred Scarred Series Is he the beast she learned to love? Is she the beauty he won over? How can a beauty and a brute get to happily ever after? When Brendan shows up to her sister's wedding, Calysta realizes who he was all along. After he abandoned her, can she still find it in her heart to love him even if this version of him scares her more than his beastly self ever did? Brendan knows he is a stranger to her world and longs to be a part of it. However, the more he spends time with her, the more her secrets unravel before him. Will his old habits return to reject her brokenness or is he indeed the new man he so desires to be for her? Find out what happens to Brendan and Calysta in this story about second chances and how one sometimes needs to give it even to those who don't deserve it.
  6. My dream is to be able to do that AND earn a living from my writing to supplement what God is calling me to do, so we're different in that sense. The mentality of Chris Fox and his tribe is definitely along the lines of treating writing as a business (check out the 20BooksTo50K group on Facebook). I love what Mark Buchanan said: "The work of our hands by the alchemy of our devotion becomes our worship to God." I definitely think that about my writing. It's my passion, my ministry, and yes, my business. More than all of that, it's my worship to a God Who created me to be a writer. Because it is a form of worship unto Him, as a passion, a ministry, and as a business, my desire is to make it as excellent as I could possibly make it.
  7. I was at a point when I'd basically given up on my writing. I didn't think I could do this anymore. My first novel sank like a rock. I was discouraged. A lot of negative thing happened to me and my relationships because of my writing. December of last year, I went on a fast just to seek God and what He wanted. In that season, I found Chris Fox's books. He's not a Christian and some of the content of his books are definitely not clean (he refers to drug use several times). Anyway, I read 5000 words/hour and devoured the rest of his books after. Since then, I relaunched my novel and my devotional. Worked on my short story to turn it into a novelette. Wrote a novella and a novel. All in the span of four+ months. I've launched four books since January and will launch another novel this month. I'm basically building my backlist and having fun with it. And I hope in my heart that in a year or two, I can make a decent income out of this. I'd recommend Chris Fox's books to anyone who wants to make a career as an indie author.
  8. In celebration of the month of Mother's Day, 23 authors offer 23 romance books that celebrate Mother's day and feature relationships between characters and their mother. (By downloading a book, you sign-up to the author's mailing list.)
  9. A Christian Rock Star Romance This is a story About making music, And touching the supernatural. About creating art, And embracing the radical. About taking risks, And rejecting the typical. About choosing love, And forgiving the prodigal. This is the story of childhood sweethearts, Nolan and Serene, Who painted and played glimpses of heaven, Lost themselves in all the fame and wonder, And found themselves still longing to be together.
  10. The Woman in the Wilderness is a journey, yours and mine. It’s 40 days of seeking the heart of God. It’s 40 days of coming away, of allowing Him to allure you, to lead you into the wilderness and to speak gently to you. This devotional is about your wilderness seasons, times you've felt Him beckon and draw you to seek out the God Who has always been with you, and yet is Someone you have to search out. Like a precious pearl buried in a field. Each day of this journey begins with the story of a woman, who is going through a fantastical wilderness in search of her beloved. She faces obstacles and meets a variety of characters. She deals with both defeat and triumph. Accompanying her part of the journey is a section called Manna, which reflects on the word of God and how her journey parallels a Christian's life. Every Christian in serious and ardent pursuit of Love Divine has, at some point, been The Woman in the Wilderness. If any of these resonate with you, maybe you are her too.
  11. A Christian Friends-to-Lovers Romance This is a story About growing up in church, And rebelling against it. About breaking a heart, And finding a way to mend it. About hearing God’s voice, And trying to obey it. About avoiding expectation, And learning to defy it. This is the story of an unlikely couple, Max and Crazy Jenna, Who from Sunday School to adulthood, Ventured to and from the prodigal's path, And ended up finding each other.
  12. A modern-day Christian retelling of Beauty and the Beast A beauty who cuts herself to cope. A beast who steels himself to survive. A beauty and a beast who need healing from their scars. Life yanks Calysta Daniels out of her comfort zone when an odd request from a stranger becomes the only option to keep her father out of jail. Brendan Keefe is perfection-turned-beast. The last thing he wants is to grovel at the feet of this imperfect young woman, who happens to be the only way out of the curse he got himself into. Will Calysta's history and brokenness help reach out to a beast who considers himself beyond redemption? Or will Brendan's stubbornness deprive him of the love he so desperately longs for?
