A resource center for Christian authors and readers
Called to Write Christian Fiction

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.

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!

  1. Hi David,
    You’ve reviewed a book of mine before, called “The Kingdom, Here Be Dragons, Here Be Dreams.”
    I have written another book, “The Wayfarer’s Guide To The Apocalypse.” I’d love for you to review it. In spite of the subject, it’s not dark. The Goodreads link is:
    My email is joanne@rolston.nz.
    Thank you for your time.
    God bless,

    • Revelation is certainly not dark. It is the most exciting preview of what is coming in the near future. My anticipation level is really high, at this point. We’re in the midst of the birth pangs. Alleluia!

  2. Hi David, I hope all is well with you. Just wanted to let you know that the sequel to Talon’s Test and the Shield of Faith is finally ready. I’ve had a lot of delays in the publication process due to my daughter’s ongoing medical challenges. But Book 2 Talon’s Truth and the Sword of the Spirit is finally complete and available for pre-order. Please let me know if you want a free advance review copy. I know you won’t be wild about the decision to quote scripture from existing versions of the Bible instead of creating new translations but after much prayer and reflection I felt God was leading me to stick with direct quotes so that readers, especially non-believers, could easily Google verses they found inspiring. Anyway, thanks for all you do for our community and this genre. Have a blessed day!

  3. Hi I’m Stuart f Griffin, Mr Bergsland you reviewed my book Northbound thru Bookcrush the sequel is out on Amazon its titled The Territory.
