Writing is hard, y'all. Really hard. And not just the putting together of the book words (though there are a lot of words that have to be put together to create a book and you have to come up with all of them) but also the putting the book out into the world part. 

A book is a piece of you, and you are sending it into the expanse of humanity and some people will love it and that will make you feel good. Some people will hate it...

I am so excited to have Kandi Wyatt as a guest today! She's celebrating the cover reveal of her latest book and sharing with us some behind the scenes goodness on how she builds the worlds of her awesome books. (Keep scrolling to see the new cover!)

Making up a world is the best part of writing for me. Often I’ll take my time, like Skymnia and Muintir in my current work in progress. The idea for their planet came from my husban...

There was one instance when my mother was asked to share at a ladies event. It wasn't long after her mother, my grandmother, had passed away and she took the opportunity to share about the legacy my grandmother had left to her and therefore to me and my sisters and even my daughters. Recently my mom sent me the notes from that event and they meant so much I wanted to share them here. 

The things I want to share I hope will help...

My 2019 word of the year has been Breakthrough. I talked all about it back in January and just read through that post again this morning. It was a little invigorating remembering all that God had been speaking to me in those cold winter months. 

What I didn't share in that post was something God had spoken to me during a prayer time a few months earlier. It was something I was keeping close to my heart, a secret between me and...

EEK!! I'm so stoked to welcome H.L. Burke to the blog today in celebration of her new release, Heart of the Curiosity! Scroll down to find out how discovering your purpose plays into this epic story as well as her own life. 

“Because a person’s knack says something about them. Muse's means she's graceful and lighthearted. Yours means your dependable and smart. Emilia's means she's shrewd and perceptive. Reid ... well, he really...

"When a unicorn waltzes into Daisy’s pasture, a poacher shows up, who will stop at nothing to gain the unicorn horn and its tears."

     My friend and fellow, former Vox Dei author, Kandi Wyatt has a new book releasing just in time and perfect for National Unicorn Day! She was kind of enough to stop by and give us all the details.

In my full-time job, I’m a teacher. I have dream class sizes,...

2016 was my year on PURPOSE.

2017 was my year of PROMISE.

2018 was my year of PASSION.

(Don't you love the alliteration there? I do. It makes me happy and to be honest I wasn't even trying for it but that's how much Jesus gets me.)

I didn't plan on having a word of the year for 2019, Really I didn't. Those previous three years and three words neatly tied up a season of my life, and using them as points of focus made sense. So as 2...

In just a few hours, 2018 will end and 2019 will begin. Whether you go out with friends, countdown in front of New Year's Rockin' Eve in your own living room, or go to bed early, the new year will come at the stroke of midnight. Are you ready for what it holds?

In The Chronicle of the Three: Eden Sword (the final installment in the trilogy) Zoe is struggling to celebrate as her destiny weighs on her. Thankfully, she's got Danie...

Is gifting even a word? Did I make that up? I don't know, it doesn't matter. What matters is it means giving gifts. In Eden Sword we find out that one of Claire's super powers is giving amazing gifts. 

I have to admit, I'm not quite as good at gifting as Claire but I do love giving good gifts to those I love. (It's one of my top two love languages so that could be part of it.) Birthdays, Holidays, just because...I love it when...

December 17, 2018

While for many of us the Holiday season is filled with joy and family, for a lot of people it adds up to be a blue Christmas. (I'm sure Zoe, Claire, Maggie, and the gang can attest to spending holidays feeling way less than jolly.) You don't have to be a demon slayer to have some dark shadows that haunt you and keep you in the dark when the rest of the world seems so full of light. 

But you don't have to let the darkness w...
