Zander really likes this series....we are getting quite a collection. He saw the amazon package and said, "Now which one should I read first?"

It's official! Jamin received the acceptance letter to Eugene Bible College. He says he's leaning towards it...but still praying through a couple of issues.

Book Share

Cheryl (not sure if she'd want me to share the link to her blog) is a local friend. Cheryl is "the one" who loaned me this book. She's told me to go ahead and pass it along.

If you live in the local area (you know where that is) and would like to read this book, please contact me. After we've passed it around here, maybe I'll offer it as a giveaway. ::snort::

I suspect several would enjoy reading this one. I found it interesting. The only thing I really, really disliked is the way they switch writing perspective. I wish they'd chose ONE and stick with it..... IE "I (Jim Bob)" and then in the next paragraph read something that is obviously Michelle's perspective....and vice verse...but that's not a huge problem. LOL

Thanks, Cheryl!

Christian Writers’ Market Guide 2009 by Sally Stuart

Our budding author, Jamin, states that the Christian Writers' Market Guide is a "vital tool for those wishing to publish in the Christian Market." No, he's not found a publisher for his novel BUT he has published in several magazines and online sources....and he's been researching new publishers to pitch his novels to, researching writing agents and entering contests etc. all resources found in this book.

For 24 years running, the Christian Writers’ Market Guide has remained the most comprehensive, complete, essential, and highly-recommended resource for beginning and veteran Christian writers, agents, editors, publishers, publicists, and those teaching writing classes.
