  1. I think that if you write for yourself, you are free to experiment with whatever storyline or elements you want. There is freedom in that. If you are writing to sell books, well then, you may have to sacrifice some stuff. My advice, write the best story you can the way you want to. Cherish that process before it gets all muddied with other peoples wants and thoughts. Then, after you have cherished your work, put on a thick skin and prepare to make some sacrifices. See what the betareaders think. See what the agents think. Hopefully, you picked the right ni
  2. Hi Brandon! Welcome!
  3. @dprowell, this journey sounds so daunting! Sadly, I have not made any email lists. No one reads my stuff yet except my sister, my online Word Weavers critique group, and a few select friends. I am sorry you are navigating this self-publishing world without someone in your corner to help. Have you thought of getting an agent? Although, the two people I know who did get an agent and go with traditional publishing ended up dropping their agents later. I am sure that is a hard road to travel down as well. I will pray God opens doors and brings the right peop

      She's a tortoiseshell and so sweet!

  5. White Christmas is my favorite movie.
  6. I've heard that God has a calendar and it is called the Moedim. Some preachers have said that it is found in the festivals described in Leviticus 23. I find studying Hebrew culture and traditions enlightening. I'm no staunch Hebrew roots person that would say we have to observe all the legalities. In fact, I vaguely recall Paul saying each person is to be in the state they were in when they first got saved. Gentile remains a gentile, a Jew remains a Jew, etc. But still, who wouldn't want to know more about the customs and culture our savior grew up in, right? The Moedim fascinate m
  7. Sam, What kind of critique measurements are you looking for? Overall character, plot, review or more specific edits? Blessings, E.T.
  8. I am in this very same boat. Yet, I haven't finished my first manuscript so I would be of no help to you. What I write has realm stones, dragons, and necromancy (which is depicted as bad). I feel (until I found this site a few days ago) that I do not know many Christians that love fantasy books. I grew up reading Anne McCaffrey, Terry Brooks, Terry Goodkind, Frank Herbert, etc before I got saved so I sometimes worry that I might be including too much of the mystical into my work. Congrats on your series! Goodluck on your journey of branding/promoting your work. Blessin
  9. Hey I love your profile pic. My capital one card has Starry Night on it 😃 

  10. Makes great sense. So encouraged to hear of other Christian writers and their journey in creating great worlds to explore in freedom. Thank you for your input! Blessing, E.T.
