Welcome, readers of the Hartline blog! Since you’re new to this post, I’m extending the drawing to Monday, February 3. Watch for the announcement of the winners!
I can’t believe how quickly Eddie Jones at Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas got this up on Amazon! Basically, from December to January, since I was working on the project during our hunt in the Hill Country at the end of November. True, the release date isn’t until March 18, but it’s available for pre-order now.
Terry wrote the back cover copy:
This book is for the new Christian writer or the writer looking to decide how God wants them to incorporate their faith into their writing. How do we know what the Lord wants us to do? Are we being called to write or do we want to write for Him as an offering? What is required of the author using their writing for the Lord and how do they go about it? What do we really want to achieve with our writing, and how do we define success?
Also included in the book is a definition of Christian Fiction as a genre and a discussion of the different audiences authors in this genre address–along with the structure best used to reach their audiences for God.
Terry and I both include personal stories of our writing journeys, and Terry answers some questions I’ve fielded through some on-line loops and groups pertaining to the query process. He covers the query process in his short book, A Writer’s Survival Guide to Getting Published. Writing in Obedience was initially intended to be a companion piece.
So here’s the deal:
I’ll give away a copy of A Writer’s Survival Guide to Getting Published to three drawing winners. Just pre-order Writing in Obedience and leave evidence of your order here on this post to be entered into the drawing.
Winners will be announced
Friday, January 31!Monday, February 3rd!
