As you probably know, Voices of the Future: Stories of Courage & Compassion released last week, and I am still in celebration mode! Getting to be a part of this awesome anthology with the Author Conservatory has been amazing, and I’m thrilled to say that we have sold 500+ books thus far … and are continuing to accumulate more sales. Which is amazing, considering this is basically the writer equivalent of a school fundraiser, only all the money is going to us, the students, so we are able to pursue our dreams. Speaking of VOICES of the future … did you know that my short story in the collec ..read more

Hey everyone! As you know, last year, The Author Conservatory (a Christian writing program I’m blessed to be an employee and student at) released Voices of the Future: Stories of Family and Fearlessness. Each story was written by one of our students, and all book proceeds went to helping the writers attend conferences and pitch their novels to publishing agents. Now, we’re back again with a brand new collection releasing in May, and this time a set of nine new authors are heading this one! Like last time, all proceeds will go back to helping these authors grow in their writing, attend conferen ..read more

Introducing My Short Story for Novelists in November
Kellyn Roth Blog

Well, with Novelists in November closing for submissions soon (so get yours in!), I am currently wrapping up my own short story which, if it works out well, I will be including in the collection! I had gone back and forth for a while about whether or not I’d be including a short story in this collection. I didn’t have a great idea for a while, and I ended up deciding that the idea I did have was no fun. So I switched and then decided that, for a while, I’d put aside the idea of writing for Novelists in November at all. But … eventually, an idea came to me, so I outlined it a couple weeks ago a ..read more

How to Format a Novel (or other fictional work) for Submission
Kellyn Roth Blog
by Kellyn Roth
2M ago
Over the last couple days, I’ve answered a lot of young writers’ questions about how submission guidelines work both for Wild Blue Wonder Press, and at my day job at the Author Conservatory (where we do critiques as well as put together anthologies, necessitating submission guidelines). And one of the biggest questions is about formatting manuscripts. And I forget, as someone who has been working in publishing for so long (since January 2016!), that not all of this is super intuitive. But this is information EVERY writer needs to know, whether indie or traditional. If you’re an indie author, a ..read more

Comparing Patrick and Cassie from Like a Ship on the Sea
Kellyn Roth Blog
by Kellyn Roth
3M ago
Today I have a kind of unusual post—I’ll be comparing Patrick Hilton and Cassie O’Connell from my novel, Like a Ship on the Sea. There’s a dichotomy between them, surely, but also so many similarities that I didn’t even realize existed until the revision stage. At which point, I was, of course, delighted. As we know, both Patrick and Cassie deal with neglectful or even cruel parents. Patrick’s mother and father push him around and force him into situations he’s not comfortable with. He sees his mother as a distant but unloving figure, and his father as the harsh, tyrannical force that guides h ..read more

GUESS WHAT? I’m getting published in an anthology. AND … There are a couple things that make this story and this anthology really important and really fun. This story features a character you know and love, if you’re a long-time reader. Even if you don’t know and love the character, you’ll want to support our mission. Because specifically, my story is being published in the Author Conservatory‘s second Voices of the Future anthology: Stories of Courage & Compassion! Let’s start with the “supporting our mission” bit. I’ll circle back around to the “character you know and love” another tim ..read more

Kellyn Roth here, and today I’m joined by H.S. Kylian to talk about Romance in Christian Fiction. Our first two posts were published here (about chemistry in Christian romance) and here (about kissing in Christian romance), but so definitely take some time to read those next time you get a chance! However, in this blog post, Hannah and I will be discussing how to handle romance when hearts are broken in the event of sexual sin or other transgressions—specifically, we’ll explore some pitfalls Christian romances tend to fall into when taking on these subjects. Hannah: Christian readers and autho ..read more
