    What Christian fiction books have you enjoyed?

    I think it's a bit of both. There's a lot of talent on this site, and more to come!

    What Christian fiction books have you enjoyed?

    I’ve enjoyed several of Michael O’Brien’s books. Most of them are tomes, but worth it. Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov is a classic piece of Christian fiction, and one of my all-time favorites. For less “big name” examples, check out Kate le Roux and Vance Kessler. Several of the...

    Leoshine, Princess Quarry Cover Reveal Parties!

    Unfortunately we don't have that caliber of internet where we are now...but I'm sure it will be fun. Travis Williams designed your special script, right? I thought it was somebody else who did the first cover, though.

    Prayer Request Prayer Request for Injured Pastor

    The pastor of my sister and brother-in-law’s church badly broke his leg the other day. It’s too severe of an injury to deal with well where they live, so he will have to travel to the capital, which is a lengthy and arduous journey at the best of times. Please join me in prayer for his safety...

    Prayer Request New Persia

    Not everyone ethnically Persian is from Iran, nor is every Iranian Persian. But I’ve noticed the same thing—most ethnically Persian Iranians call themselves Persian rather than Iranian. Maybe because Iran is a relatively new concept on the world scene, while Persia has been around like…pretty...

    Prayer Request New Persia

    Yes, the Persian church is growing rapidly, though much of this growth is taking place outside Iran. Inside the country, there is still much persecution, both on a governmental and societal level.

    Prayer Request New Persia

    I read an interesting statistic the other day—as of 2022, most young Iranians no longer identify themselves as Muslim. Let’s pray that Jesus fills that gap of cynicism and disillusionment, rather than atheism or secular thinking. For more, check out Elam.com or Safar.org

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

    You know, why don’t you write the scene and share it? Then we’ll have something concrete to go by.

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

    Do they know she’s come to stay? Or are they just hoping for a five-minute flirtation? I don’t think it’s necessarily unrealistic, but I do think you want to have everyone involved behaving in a logical, even somewhat predictable, manner. While character actions that are too predictable are...

    I’m Scratching my Head…

    Thanks to your research, @Crawdad, I now know the mistake I made—after writing less than conventionally attractive/wealthy/competent heroes for the first several books (though I did have a Bad Boy, he came to a Bad End, which kind of spoils things, apparently.) Finally, I decided to go with...

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

    I think what I’m trying to convey is, it’s hard for me to picture exactly how this would go down. If this is a small enough town that a new girl is that exciting, it’s also small enough that activity like this would create a disturbance, and a passerby or store owner is likely to intervene...

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

    My first question would be (not as father but as hypercritical reader) why are all the town’s “bad boys” collected at the bus stop in the first place? It’s not a typical hangout spot in most towns, according to my observation. But say they’re there for some reason. Why are they so starved for...

    I’m Scratching my Head…

    @Nicola, I think you have made great points—and to add to them, I’d say women are attracted to strong personalities—men who know what they want and strive for it—great qualities to have, but unfortunately easily twisted into controlling or abusive behavior. Evil cannot create anything, it can...
