    What Christian fiction books have you enjoyed?

    I am enjoying Ella Walker Henderson. It isn't overt Christian themed. I read mostly up and coming authors, like those on this site! We all have our ways of presenting Jesus and His message to the world. My Leoshine series is pretty overt. There are crosses on the cover. God speaks and the...

    How To Discern Honest Christian Fiction

    Balance. All things in moderation and with a gracious motive. This is what I think of when I read your words. I recently read Of Wind and Lightning (book 1) and Of Plains and Fire (book 2) by Ella Walker Henderson She did a terrific job at balancing the light and dark of human nature. There is...

    Christian Writing Writing Is Hard

    Great story! $1 for Leoshine, Princess Oracle $5 for the publishing costs $20 for the years of labour on the story. Seems like a deal to me! I want to be Steinmetz too! Listening to the voice of the machine. Feeling the heartbeat. Knowing the internal structure so well that I can zero in on...

    Reading other people's work

    "Spoiled for reading." Once we know what goes on behind the scenes, we never find the stage lights so honouring. @Shamrock, I understand the disappointment of not finding good books. That's one reason I write! I want to read something written the way I want it written. We are also in a craft...

    Christian Writing Fill in the blank (what would YOU do?)

    As an unwise father, I run over there with a baseball bat and have a good old slugfest with anyone thinking about looking at my daughter. Likely I get beaten up and maybe die. I don't help my daughter any. As a wise father I let my daughter walk over to me at the car. I make myself look tall...

    Christian Writing A Sea-Change of Opinion About Self Publishing

    Who are the new gate keepers going to be? Readers have always been the gatekeepers traditional publishers wanted to keep happy. Traditional publishers just got a bit arrogant about what readers really wanted. Time is the best gatekeeper. If a book is still selling a year after launch, it is...

    I’m Scratching my Head…

    What an interesting topic! Thanks for starting it, Zee! Do we have a psychologist in the house? All writers are amateur psychologists, but it would be good to hear from a professional. Eve thought she knew better than Adam. And God for that matter. She went with the ultimate "bad boy." Humans...

    Christian Writing RC Sproul On What Makes For Christian Art

    I'd go so far as to say any depiction of creation or imagination that does not reflect truth and redemption (which is what beauty is made from) is not art no matter what the world view of the "artist" is. Some people produce to shock and reflect ugliness. They make us more aware of the ugliness...

    It is a cute book about being grateful. The kid doesn't want to go to bed so she tries out the animal's beds and learns that blankets and pillows are pretty comfy.
