Christian Fiction Blog hopes to keep you informed about current trends and news in christian fiction, craft and book publishing. This analysis with Dave and J.Mark has been one of the most enlightening discussions I have observed in the world of Christian Fiction period. Dave has such a grace-awing book and as J.Mark dissects its parts more and more, you will see what an enormous undertaking Ezekiel's Shadow took. We speak with many Christian Fiction authors. They explain their craft and calling over the novel that they write, but Ezekiel's Shadow is one of the few books that strive to infuse God in the theme, the plot, the everthing.
Dave took the themes of conversion and resurrection and builds upon it with symbols of bones, baptism, art, horror in such a way that the reader will see beyond the story. But will wonder who is this God that can make these things happen?
Don't we want out works to cry out and praise God like that?
Sometimes, many of us, have a huge vision for our stories. And between plotting and rewriting we fall short. If you have been participating in the analysis, you will read both Dave and J.Mark's sides of how this novel fell short. That fact is why this project is so worthwhile for the christian writer to read and follow.
If you are struggling with your novel--I mean struggling with pulling out all the stops that God has haunted your fingertips and your soul with putting on paper, into your story, check End of the Horror. Participate in the discussion board.
We are counting down the days to our Halo's Eve Project here. If you haven't stopped by the discussion board(I know you haven't,) get plugged in, and let's ring in Thanksgiving praising the Lord through our novels.
In my grandmother's church, the mother board loves to sing a song, "No Rocks." The ladies would chant, "I don't want no rocks crying out for me."
Well, I don't want no other authors, crying out for me. I praise the Lord in my own way, in a way that makes him happy, a way he created for me to do. Through my songs, my dancing, shouting-Hallelujah-and my writing. And he did the same for you. Are you a writer? Are you God's writer?
What say you?
Writing to see what the end's gon' be,
True to previous AppleInsider reports and expectations, Apple yesterday officially introduced a new iPod, featuring a 2.5-inch color screen which can display album artwork and photos, and play video including music videos, video Podcasts, home movies and television shows.
To top that off, you can subscribe to popular ABC and Disney Shows on the ipod.
That's all fine and dandy, but instead of Desperate Housewives and Lost what about Chronicles of Narnia, The Proud Family and the Little Einsteins?
Now that I will pay for that.
Question: If you had a video ipod, what shows and movies would you like to see on there? How do you think this affects the power of books in the future? How do you think that will impact our mission as Christian writers?
Angela & Yolanda are both Christian Fiction Authors & their books are receiving rave reviews!
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
Celebrating 3 Years of Literary Excellence!
