To all Christians.
May we never forget the somberness, gravity, or joy
of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
I am empty. Bereft. No one visits, no one comes near. The garden is a comfort in some ways. The beauty of the flowers, the trees, and the sky above. But I am lonely. Not like my brothers and sisters nearby. They have been used. They are filled with the bodies of their masters’ loved ones. Continue reading
When I started reading this book, I had just started one of my final edits for a novel and I picked up this one so I could hopefully find some tips. I’m glad I did, too. Continue reading

April is going to be busy for many reasons, but mostly because I am doing Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m a cabin leader on the Camp NaNo website and a friend and I started a Facebook group to help encourage writers. Let me know if you’d like to join. As for my specific goals for April, here they are:
- Keep up with the Facebook group
- Write 2,000+ words per day
- Promo books on twitter
- Finish two writing books
- Keep up with reviewing books read
- Edit All the Way and send to proofreaders
- Get Be Thou My Vision and Blessed Assurance on Pronoun
- Total word count goal: 50,000
I think that’s everything for this coming month for me. What about you? Have you made any goals for April?
I’m excited to share with you a special treat today. I’ve teamed up with a group of other Christian authors to offer you FREE ebooks* when you sign up to learn more about what they write. You’ll download the book directly from this link—I think you’ll find great new authors to love. The book I have available there is my novella, Redeemed. Click the book cover below to get it. We’re also offering a $25 gift card giveaway. This promotion is only good through March 30th, so fill up your reader in time to celebrate Easter. Enjoy!
*I haven’t read all of these books, and therefore cannot endorse them all, so please do your due diligence before downloading them.
Structured story plots have been a problem for me in the past, but I never knew what to do about it, so I just kept plugging along. Then I came across this book and will not have that problem any more (as long as I follow the tips I read about). Continue reading
Writing Software; there are a lot of them out there. Some are free and some cost money. Scrivener is probably one of the most popular. If you’re like me, though, and you don’t have much money or aren’t sure Scrivener (or other paid softwares) are really worth it, there is an FREE option designed by a writer for writers: yWriter5.
What is yWriter?
yWriter is a word processor that divides your book into chapters and scenes easily and so you can see them. If you are outlining your book, this is a great tool to use because they have places for notes where you put the scene description in. For more details about what yWriter is and why it was created, check out the yWriter website. Continue reading
Title: Marshall, Texas Ranger: The Case of The Hidden Pasts

If Sherlock Holmes were to be in the Wild West, things would be very interesting. If he then also had all memory of his past erased, that would be even more interesting. George McVey did a great job of combining all of that. Including a Moriarty type figure. They are both unique and different from Holmes and Moriarty, but the resemblances are definitely there.
