The Bachelor – Stephanie Reed

  The Bachelor  Stephanie Reed Stephanie Reed’s second in the Plain City Peace Series does not disappoint. This story picks up with book one left off bringing Betsie Toyer into light.

Those 15-Minute Appointments

As conference time nears conferees dig down and prepare to meet one-on-one with publishers, agents, and editors. The wonderful advantage of attending a conference is this “free-card” to meet face to face with industry professionals. The publishing market has tightened to the point of strangulation. Publishers are overworked and understaffed, so to meet with them at a conference is an amazing opportunity. During these meetings publishers (and agents) will extend an open door opportunity for...

Write Anyway

The computer screen glowed a soft white. I’d drawn a blank. This writing stuff was hard. Too hard. It wasn’t writer’s block. It was just plain hard work – hard to press one more letter on the keyboard, and harder to weave together any more cognitive thoughts. Writing is supposed to be fun. Not hard.

World Blog Tour – Catching Up with Cindy Sproles

Christian writers support and encourage one another by letting readers know about other writers. We do this through blog tours. Andrea Merrell invited me to answer four questions and then point you toward three authors whose work I support. What Am I Working on Now?
