A resource center for Christian authors and readers
Christian authors and readers have a serious calling

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].

Technical support and mentoring for Christian self-publishers is 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 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!

Blades of Acktar fantasy by Tricia Mingerink

Avoiding preachy, making it real

One of the things we talk about a lot is the horrible attribute named preachy. I’ve always just blown it off with a quick, “You got to make it real.” In Jerry Jenkins regular email today, he shared this. The Come … Continue reading →

Christian Urban Fantasy: In the Shadows of Myrmidons

Epic fantasy: A lyrical slave king

Epic fantasy with a lyrical slave king. In general, I find this type of fantasy irritating. I think it’s going to be a fun fantasy, once we get there. It’s quite entertaining. But this is definitely the obscure intro to a triple … Continue reading →
