Yes, I realize these reviews are a bit less than weekly, but I don’t always have something newsworthy to share. 🙂 But today, I do.
Fay Lamb visits writing prompts http://writingpromptsthoughtsideas.wordpress.com/2014/05/28/fay-lamb-2/
Fay Lamb has more news to share. She’ll be teaching a workshop at the Southern Christian Writer’s Conference in Tuscaloosa, AL June 6 and June 7, and she’ll be there on behalf of Pelican Book Group to talk to authors interested in publishing with any of their imprints.
has a new release in her Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations series. Yay!
Texas Ranger Sarah Osborn thought she would never see her high school sweetheart, Ian O’Leary, again. But fifteen years later, Ian, an ex-FBI agent, has someone targeting him, and she’s assigned to the case. Can Sarah protect Ian and her heart?
As an aside, I was going to answer Kristina’s questions as part of receiving the honor of the Liebster reward, but I just realized, I don’t qualify. Oops! Well, I’m pretty sure you all know all about me, anyway. 🙂 And of course, if there’s anything you don’t know that you’d like to, just ask!
In other news, I’m working on my first nonfiction! I’m a bit intimidated, to say the least, for although I’ve written countless articles and blog posts, I’m learning writing a book is an entirely different matter. But I feel so strongly God is nudging me forward, I’m going to keep stepping. To help in that regard, I asked my sweet friend and longtime critique partner, Eileen Rife, to join me.
She and I are so similar in so many ways, and in all the ways that matter most. She has such a heart for Christ, and her and her husband have raised children who are living out their God-given missions. More than that, she’s written numerous nonfictions (and fictions!), so, after a great deal of prayer, I knew she’d be a perfect fit for this project. We’re still in the proposal, but I’m excited to see where God takes us. 🙂
I don’t want to share too much at this stage, but I can tell you, it’s a parenting book focused on helping parents raise their children in light of Ephesians 2:10 which says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” (NLT).
On a spiritual note, I had a bit of a rough couple days and felt I didn’t handle them well. This morning, God reminded
me of the importance of maintaining my witness and my praise in all situations. To that end, I’ve decided to meditate on Psalm 71 (There’s so much in that passage!) and memorize verse seven, praying that can be true of me.
That’s what’s new in my corner. How about you? Any new books, articles, or blog posts you’ve discovered you just have to share? Any new challenges God’s nudging you toward?
