Congrats and happy release day to author Kelley Nikondeha!   “The First Advent in Palestine” brings to life the true context of Mary and Joseph on that fateful night in Bethlehem. Rome and Caesar loom, and young Mary’s strength and resolve shine brightly as we begin to truly understand what it meant for her to live in the tumultuous Galilee region.   Through Joseph’s point of view, we see the brutality of Herod’s rule and how the complexities of empire weighed heavily on the Holy Family.   We bear witness to the economic hardship of Nazareth, Bethlehem, and the many villages ..read more

I believe that is what my father wanted for me and knew I would so desperately need: a tool for survival, the truth of my dignity named like a mercy new each morning.” So writes Cole Arthur Riley in her unforgettab ..read more

Should You Create Your First Novel for a Market?
Rachelle Gardner Blog

  I really like this quote from bestselling author Lisa Jewell. “It’s very important NOT to go into writing your first novel trying to create something for a market.” She said this in the October 18 episode of the Olivia’s Book Club podcast. She went on to say: “You should absolutely only write the thing that comes out of your head when you put your fingers on the keyboard and start making words happen. Just let yourself in, don’t let the market in because that’s not how great books are made.” This is so important! It might be harder to sell your book to a publisher if it doesn’t fit the ..read more
