Larry Paris’ Kindle version release of The Darkened Land speaks allegorically and well. This is not an allegory like A Pilgrim’s Progress where you know what is happening by the names used. The Darkened Land is a unique place where Dark and … Continue reading →
The vision is to provide resources for Christian authors and readers, focusing on God’s call, the production of anointed materials, and vetted book reviews. You can see an example of that to the left [email David and he’ll send you a digital copy]. For a printed copy click this link.
Technical support and mentoring for Christian self-publishers are found in our companion site: The Skilled Workman. There you will also find Book Publishing With InDesign CC, the book on the best method to self-publish on a professional level.
Christian authors and readers are both essential to our effort!
Our twin focus is first to encourage authors to participate in the final harvest as we prepare for the Coming of our King. It’s a glorious time to be alive and the Lord is looking for authors to help Him save all possible before the Wrath which is to come falls on the Earth.
Second, we also need and serve readers, both to help us stay on track, and to share these resources with their friends and acquaintances. As authors and creators, we must stay attached to the Head, Jesus, as well as the readers we serve. For having a call from God necessarily means we serve those we are given. Our readers are our flock with whom we are called to minister. Jesus told us we will be held to account for everything we say [or write]. We take that seriously.
Readers are needed for feedback, reviews, and sharing. The only marketing which really works is the recommendation of a trusted friend. Only our readers can provide this info to their friends. We want to help our readers understand the important part they play in this work.

As a major part of this vision for both Christian authors and readers, I believe that the Kingdom needs more authors willing to lay it all on the line and create books containing the reality of the Christian life. We need readers searching for books of this quality and sharing them. We need books which go beyond mentions of church and vague faith statements. We really need books which share the reality of the power available to believers to bring love, joy, and healing to a world desperately needing hope. The darkness we see in the world today is but the birth pangs of the coming Kingdom on Earth. That’s our glorious hope. God, the Father of us all, is coming to live with us forever in an earth designed for us to share. Alleluia!
So, welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride!

Yes, I know this phrase comes from the I Ching, but perseverance furthers with believers especially authors. Scripture talks a lot about overcomers and overcoming. Long-suffering shows up as a fruit of the Spirit. Don’t quit remains one of the most common … Continue reading →
Christine Wachter Christian fantasy is entertaining. This book begins very dark, oppressively dark, necessarily dark, and depressing. It’s definitely fiction of a high order. It brings Truth in the midst of a world having horrors which surpass reality. Yet, it … Continue reading →
I’ve learned writing Christian fiction requires special care. This is especially true for fantasy. Creating transformational books demands Holy Spirit involvement.

Remember the original spontaneous Holy Spirit of life? I’ve fond memories, but they were quite rare—even during the time of renewal when I was called to meet Him. [Yes, He called me. I was too stupid to even seek Him.] God’s … Continue reading →

The Christian norms promise, trial, provision give growth into maturity—what scripture calls perfection. John Hagee was talking about this in today’s sermon. Being smack dab in the middle of trial, the sermon hit me hard (or I should say, it was an … Continue reading →
Just knowing God seems too simple — but it’s the core of the Gospel. My new fantasy focuses on the Known. Our culture sees the Known as fantasy—hated without reason, and a threat to our way of life. What fools … Continue reading →
