Stephen Christiansen Stephen Christiansen's blog:
I've been thinking about a concept of two more books. These would probably be book 15 and 16 in the series. The 15th book will probably be called "Opus Magnus" and the 16th might be called "The City of the Forbidden".

Six blind men were asked to determine what an elephant looked like by feeling different parts of the elephant's body. The blind man who feels a leg says it is like a pillar; the one who feels the tail says it is like a rope; the one who feels the trunk says it is like a tree branch; the one who f...

As many of you may have noticed, I only post on my blog when I am inspired to do so. However today's post comes from a broken heart and the need to do something about it.
In early December 2012 the Lord called me to write a book for Him. It was He who dictated what I was to write. I just obeyed.... Read more of this blog post »

While I am writing, I keep thinking about how we spent Christmas. I just cannot find the words to tell you how much I loved that holiday. Sometimes, when I think of the way I felt then I get tears in my eyes; not because of gifts, we never got anything much. I remember one Christmas I receive... Read more of this blog post »

Tiana Dalichov Tiana Dalichov's blog:

When an author sells a book to a publisher, she gets paid an advance. Say you write a book and a publisher buys it for $100. That $100 is an investment they made in your work because they expect their return will be greater than that. And until the publisher has made back its $100, you aren’t owe...

I envisioned pink hair ribbons and curls, sparkly jewels and high-heeled shoes. This may sound like a farce, but throughout my life, all I’ve ever learned about feminis...
