  1. I was sitting in bed when the phrase "I have loved you with an everlasting love" popped into my brain. I had to look up the verse. Thus says the Lord : “The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. Jeremiah 31:2‭-‬3 ESV https://bible.com/bible/59/jer.31.2-3.ESV I need this grace that can be found in the wilderness. When the world is at its darkest, I need the
  2. @Zee, I met a few ladies on CritiqueMatch.com that have agreed to partner with me. Thanks so much for the suggestion.
  3. @Accord64, @Jeff Potts, @lynnmosher, @Chris Brown, @Shamrock, @Wes B, @suspensewriter Thank you all for sharing your information, experiences, and insights. I see that getting published is a very tough process to maneuver through. I pray that you all are blessed in your writing and that Christ meets you when pen meets paper (or in this case, fingers meet keyboard). Blessings, E.T.
  4. I have sent off my work to family, friends, and a few critique partners in my Word Weavers critique group. Do any of you suggest paying for a "professional beta reader?"
  5. May his grace overwhelm you and heal you. May his face shine upon you and give you peace. By his blood you are redeemed and set free. By his name, the power of darkness will flee. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
  6. @RLHicks, I don't have a time frame at the moment. Let me know when you are ready. Have a wonderful holiday season! Blessings, E.T.
  7. Since I was little, I had mini movies playing in my head. It was where I went to explore ideas and do things I never could in real life. I could orchestrate far off planets and the politics behind them. I could choreograph beautiful figure skating routines. I could skateboard a half pipe without the agony of breaking bones. I could explore vast libraries for days on end without anyone to tell me it's time to go. I could meet people with the most interesting backstories to tell. I could do this all without the need of money, strength, skill, or influence. In
  8. @lynnmosher and @Jeff Potts, Thanks so much for all the information. This is so helpful!
  9. I just sent off my first drafts to a few beta readers. An editor friend of mine suggested I work on writing a proposal. When I looked up mock proposals, my head went spinning. Another published friend said she didn't do a proposal, just a query letter when she got an agent through PitMad. What are your experiences in getting published? Should I get an agent if I am not sure I can commit to all the advertising or self-promotion? Do I still need a book proposal? What happened to just writing stories? If an agent is the way to go, where
  10. I imagined this in one of my scenes. It is almost cliché, but I still love it.
  11. Hey @Zee, I am not sure it is well-written, but I hope to make it into a good story...eventually. So this is the "in process" logline of the book: When disease threatens her home colony, a young farm girl embarks on a journey to identify the source; but when a Prophet reveals a greater scheme to take down the Kingdom, she must decide where to place her trust before her world is reduced to ashes. The world is Cardinia. Four Kinds live on this planet-Man, Beast, Nature, and Malaek. The time period is after an Age of Promise/Peace. There a
