Purify My Heart Re release Book launch

Friday I had another bool launch for the same book. The difference is I have a new cover and new publisher.  My editor has made some changes to my manuscript too. I decided to start a new. Sure people knew  about Jesus Paid it All. It was a flop! It wasn’t that the part went sour but that my book wasn’t selling. Of all the people who downloaded the ebook, only one wrote a review. Lovely huh?  Another blooper on my behalf was having my ebook free for too long.

Well, I’ve learned. Never again. I’ll just offer a coupon the next time and I did. However…

Since my ebook was republished, I no longer had control of that feature. However, my publisher let me  offer a coupon as a contest prize. I would say it was the best launch party I have  hosted, But  you know it wasn’t just me who made it special because  both my co author and I couldn’t before the whole 12 hours so I asked  a couple of friends who I know who has done Book parties; Laura  Ranger and Cathy Jackson. Of course Kathy and I hosted it too.

The party  went well! There were lots of e-book giveaways,  a couple of key rings,  and a book markers. Most of it, a gift card from Amazon. I  posted trivia questions that had to do with witches, posted, pics where you had to caption it.  I try to get ideas from other book parties  and be as clean as possible.  I think Cathy did a great job as well as Laura and  my co author and I couldn’t do it without them.

It was my intention to make it fun and it was for fun.

If you missed out, there will be others. In the meantime here is the book trailer

Struggling Authors

I know what it is like not having the finances to hire a good editor.  It’s the pits. I have struggled with this in my life. But the Lord had blessed me. Only one time did I ever have to take huge chunks of the little I get each month ti edit my first book–A Second Chance at Love. Well, guess what? That editor was more like a copy editor. She didn’t help with my story line at all. And to make it worse,  even my proofreader didn’t help much either yet I didn’t pay her because she wasn’t  a professional. You see, I don’t have a day job where people can say to me “Don’t quit your day job.”  I am unemployed and  I get under 100 dollars a month which  goes to giving to church and paying for cat food and bus fare. Those are the basic three. I do have money left over but sometimes unexpected expenses comes up in which I need to have some money on hand.  Good editors at a low-cost are hard to find. Many of them are very business minded. “Sorry I have to make a living so I can’t do it for  free.” It’s understandable for unbelievers to say that. They haven’t  read the Bible nor do they live by God’s Word.

That’s right. God’s word. There are scriptures that says “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”, or scripture that says that we should help our brother or sister in need. Sad to say but even Christians dismiss that and go right to the one  verse: “A worker is worthy of his wages.” Too bad. There are more scriptures about blessing others than about “Thou shall pay for all work done for you.”

Even authors who  are financially strapped are struggling. Where is the help and encouragement if all you get told is: “You need help!” They don’t even offer to help them! It’s like” tough luck! Maybe you shouldn’t be writing!”

In the future when I am  making money from my books, I plan to offer a very low-cost book cover designing business because I believe that people should  be able to follow their dreams without  having to worry about costs. My source comes from God, not people’s wallets. By that time I should be doing  so much better at designing covers that it will look good! I have already done a cover for my second book in a series called Baby Blues. I want to help people because I believe that if I do, people will help me. I also want to help people because  I would  want the same for me.

I’m not putting  people down. It is their choice whether they feel generous or  not.  Maybe they don’t think they have the means to help others–to bless others. Jesus says “Whatever you think you have” will be taken away.”  Jesus has called us to make  good use of our talents. And people have, but they don’t  have the heart or willingness to help a struggling author.  Maybe it is because they feel if they bless someone, everyone else wants to be blessed to.  They could just offer a low-cost if they don’t want to do it for free.

Jesus Paid It All

No, this isn’t  about a hymn, but the idea for this story came from one. It is about a young Christian woman who was lonely and needed attention while her military husband was stationed in Afghanistan. In walks Diethelm, a mysterious and dark man who charmed her to seduction. Will God forgive her?

A Review of Write For the King of Glory

Are you a Christian author? Do you desire to improve craft and much more? Are you unsure which ebook to download because there are so many out there? I know your pain. And the truth is we don’t know which one would really benefit us right? Certain authors just write from a worldly point of view and to be honest, if we want our books to glorify God, you may not get that in secular ebooks.  Sure the advice and tips may be the same, but then again, there are elements in secular books that are not in ones for Christians. Author Mary C. Findley had written a book  in which I recommend every Christian author to read. She also writes from her experience as a blogger,  cover designer and editor.  Her book is so helpful and covers much more than a  how to: from using social medias, to blogging.  You can find her book at Smashwords.com and Amazon.com. Not only is Mary an editor and cover designer but she also writes steam punk and historical fiction.

A Different Kind of King

Jesus Christ or rather Jesus the Messiah. Long before Jesus was born into the world, God spoke through the prophets about the Messiah. He spoke about his humble birth, his ministry and his death. He also spoke about Jesus Kingship, but the Jews misread all that. They got their hopes up. You see, the Jews were under the Roman rule. The Romans weren’t nice people.  The soldiers weren’t Jewish–they were all Romans. There were a few that recognize who Jesus was but most of them didn’t. The Jewish people wanted a king to free them from the Roman’s rule, but Jesus didn’t come to set them free from Roman Oppression–He came to set us free from our sins. You see, Jesus is a different kind of King. He taught that we should love our enemies, pray for those who persecute us or mistreat us. He said if  someone asked you to go a mile, go two miles. Nope, he didn’t sound like he would be rescuing at all. And a week before his crucifixion, Jesus did something no King would ever do–he rode on a Donkey. This was prophesied in the book of Zechariah Chapter 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion; shout, O Daughter of Jerusalem; behold thy king cometh to thee; he is just and having salvation; lowly and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt, the foal of an ass.”  Doesn’t sound like something an earthly king would do is it?  Jesus rode show his humility. He was called the Humble King.  He came to serve and not to be served. He came to gave his life as a ransom. Not many knew this, but a week later, he would become the ultimate sacrifice. Many thought they finally rid the earth of him.

I am reminded of what Jesus told his disciples when Andrew told him that some Greeks who wanted to see him. Jesus said, “Unless a kernel of wheat fall into the ground, it will die. and it abideth alone.” He was talking about his death. He was the kernel of wheat that died and the fruit he was referring to was US! It was all who believe on him! The fruit were the Greeks as well.  Not many believed on him, but they will.  Even the Roman Soldier believed when eh saw how Jesus died, “Surely He was the Son of God!”

My friends, the time is coming when we will all see him as the Conquering King! This Jesus was prophesied by the Apostle John or John the Revelator.  It is a long portion of scripture but it is found in Revelations 19. This is where John describes Jesus when he comes again. This time Jesus  will come on a horse and not an ass. He will come in the clouds!  (Rev 19:11-14)

Be encouraged! If Jesus is your Lord and Saviour, he is coming again and we will reign with him for ever and ever and ever. And all will know from the greatest to the least that he is the King of Kings! Now THAT is a different Kind of King!Image
