Brief Page Update

Sorry, guys. Monday was our first day of homeschooling and time got away from me, so I only have the briefest of posts:

Let’s celebrate that 2,745 people have visited my Living Lutheran Authors page! That’s amazing for how long it’s been up! Woo hoo for cultivating community and awareness for living Lutheran authors!

And, there have been 850 views on my Crafts and Crafted-for-Free: Free Resources page! Yay for church freebies and raising awareness of our Lutheran craftsmen and artists!

Here’s hoping both numbers grow exponentially and please do let me know if there are people to add or update. Thanks!

Romanian book on Means of Grace!

How about some happy international news today? 🙂 The hopefully-soon-to-be-ordained Vicar Sorin-Horia Trifa, a confessional Lutheran missionary in Bucharest, gave us a personal update about his Romanian book on means of grace.

This week

I’m behind where I wanted to be (VBS week here), but next week I hope to have several positive reviews of Lutheran books/Lutheran authors. 🙂

Yes, yes, I had typos in yesterday’s post. They’re fixed. 🙂 And, at least I know some of you are paying attention!

I am surprised how much writing news has come out this week in our little Lutheran circles (some repetition for those who follow my Facebook author page): Continue reading

Next Week: Ideas!

How’s this for a crazy notion: I’m going to try to post a full week of ideas for aspiring Lutheran authors! Stay tuned! Novel ideas, Bible studies, lay-friendly theology . . . you’ll have to wait and see!

And, hope I don’t lose those notes I have floating around. 🙂

Happy writing!

Review List

I don’t poke around blogs as much as I used to, but I’ve seen review blogs post books received or books pending reviews. Here’s my first such review list, although I must be painfully clear. No promises on when books will be read or reviews written. I just can’t handle a book review blog and would generally rather encourage others to pursue their own writing. Still, you know, I want to do what I can.

Summer Reading Suggestions?

Hello. Would there be any interest in me putting together suggestions for summer reading? It’d be Lutheran stuff since that’s thematic to my blog, although I may post my own random list including non-Lutherans, too. For now, though, could you recommend some summer reading suggestions for me?

Anything! Lutheran or non-Lutheran. One never knows when someone finds a rare jewel of a book or even just a surprisingly pleasant way to while away the time. 🙂 I’m up for anything. Except, you know, guaranteeing I’ll read it!

Also, do you want to know what I hope to read and review this summer? I know some people post that in advance, though I don’t consider this blog to be a book review blog especially.

Let me know. Happy reading and happy writing!
