Sometimes, instead of google, I’d like my old hometown library within reach. I knew those sections so well, I’d be able to walk through and scoop up tons of books for me and my kids now. Instead, I’m often left googling and Ama-zoning without resolution. For example, there was this kids’ book I really liked. There was a boy, a telepathic-to-him dragon (?), a weird bathing in blood that caused the telepathic link/ special connection, and I seem to recall some random reference to a human skin map on the wall of some dodgy place. This is not google-friendly language. I think it was a three part series but don’t really have any idea.

Lutheran author, hymnist, and CPH editor Lisa M. Clark now has a website up and running and it’s well worth a look: Why of a Writer. She has posted a few articles and interviews,  but what pleases me most is her desire to support fellow and aspiring writers!

Print Book Sales

Hello! How about I don’t tell you what or when to buy, but I let you know about a quick sale on Amazon? 🙂 The details are here (Print Book Sale), but basically if you buy $20-worth of print books sold by Amazon (not through third party vendors just using Amazon), type in GIFTBOOK17 as a promo code during check out, and you’ll save $5.

Wickedly I may use this as an excuse to just plain buy a book I want rather than Christmas shop. Feel free to do the same or whatever. 🙂 But it only lasts through 11:59 p.m. (PT) November 26, 2017.

CPH also has book sales going on, including a nice selection of $5 books! You can find that here under Shop by Price.

Feel free to recommend additional book sale places in the comment section.

Lutheran Witness 2018

Ladies and gentlemen, if I could have my way, I’d write ahead, leave plenty of time for changes and updates later, and try to keep a list of projects I can work on. And, it just so happens that Lutheran Witness 2018 themes have been announced! We can look them over now and see how we can lend a pen! As Lutheran writers we have a chance to . . . dare I say it . . . plan ahead! 🙂

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m reading some really good things written by fellow Lutherans, and it really warms my heart. Two pre-publication book projects! I know that I sometimes can harp on author community and support as opposed to competition, but it’s a beautiful thing to see people working with the words God has given them to help neighbors God has given. I’m really enjoying and appreciating them.

Even if that reading and my kids’ soccer season is eating up all my time. 🙂 But soccer ends this week! Don’t tell the kids, but yay, yay, yay!

I also hurt my knee something awful and have been extra cranky lately. But I shouldn’t be. There is so much to be thankful for. Even if martyrdom is still an ongoing reality as our Lord told us it would be. Sigh.

In lamer news, (Ha! LAME!) I haven’t been making decisions quickly. My Lutheran resources and crafts page has gotten kind of out-of-control long. Should I go ahead and split the two? An increasing number of pages are linking to it so I hate to trouble them with updating broken links, blah, blah, but what do you think? Necessary?

There is a new Lutheran publishing house! Now, before you get too excited with your proposals in hand, I’ll admit it’s on the other side of the world and publishes in a different language. 🙂 Still, a new Lutheran publishing house!
