  1. Thanks for the insight, @Steven Hutson!
  2. I saw another one that was very similar. Thank you: smells sketchy.
  3. Has anyone heard of or experienced "partner publishing"? There is a Christian publishing company, Deep River Books, whose specialty is helping new authors get published. They are adamant that they are not a vanity publisher. This is how they explain partner publishing: "In this partnership, we enjoy working with new authors who have a constituency to distribute books direct, or with authors who are willing to work hard at developing a fan base. By partnering with the author, we can provide the professional services he or she needs while sharing the risk. The way we “share the risk” is by asking the author to purchase a pre-determined number of books for his or her own distribution at a discount off the retail price. This is the only cost to the author. There are no hidden charges or upsell fees. The discounted price we offer, while substantially less than retail, is more than just the cost of printing. It helps cover our other costs, including editing, cover design, pre-press typesetting, marketing, advertising, and overhead. We pay for the above services as part of the expense. The more books the author orders, the bigger the discount he or she receives. In this partnership arrangement, we ask the author to order a minimum of one thousand copies at the time of the original printing to help defray the up-front costs of publishing the book. The discount we offer is on a sliding scale, depending on the number of books the author agrees to purchase with the initial printing. It ranges from 30% to 75% off retail, depending on quantity. We have your copies shipped to you, and we ship our copies to our distribution warehouses in Ohio. Our salesforce then works on pre-selling your book. It is also listed in our catalog, national book databases, and other selected places." Even if this is a new concept to our community, I'd love to know what you think about it! Thank you!

  4. So creative! This sounds like it could be a children's book... Many lessons gleaned from this cute poem. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Oh broken heart of Gethsemane betrayal’s sorrow known by God felt by Man the kiss of death the Bread of Life Covenant of warmth spills as darkness pounds the nails - bitter jagged spikes embraced by outstretched arms and open hands cold shiny coins flung carelessly by the wicked blindly smack the cross and as they fall their reflection captures the sinner’s face - my own.
  6. What a powerful testimony! So sorry for the tragedies you've endured but thank you for sharing this. God's word is indeed our anchor of truth in all storms.
  7. "before the world and all created thingswhen the spirit sang above the watersand the tune, like feathers, formed his wings." What an ending! Strong finish to a lovely Advent poem. Thank you for sharing.
