Publishers Weekly Bestselling author Jessica R. Patch is known for her dry wit and signature twists whether she’s penned a romantic suspense, a cold case thriller, or a small-town romance. When she’s not getting into fictional mischief with her characters, you can find her cozy on the couch in her mid-south home reading books by some of her favorite authors, watching movies with her family, and collecting recipes to amazing dishes she’ll probably never cook.

Hi Cintia!
First off, I want to say thank you for asking me this question. It can be all to easy to slip into discouragement and give up on your dream to write. I see that you are a Jesus Follower, so I'll speak to you through the lens of faith. :) First off, spend time in prayer and make sure that writing is a God-given passion and calling on your life. When you know that He's asked this of you, it will help your drive to keep going when things seem impossible b/c with Christ all things ARE possible! Also, pray and ask Him to give you ideas, to help you find ideas and to breathe stories to life inside you! I do this all the time! It's important to know what it going on in the industry b/c not only is writing a passion, but a business if you want to do it and make a living. BUT, even though it seems daunting, if God has called you to this, He won't fail you or let you down. I started writing in 2008 and it wasn't until 2015 that my first contract came. That's a lot of books written collecting dust. I refused to give up. I revisited people in the Bible who had great odds against them, and seeing their success and God proving faithful built my faith and kept me encouraged to keep going. Don't look at other writers as competition. In fact, don't look at them at all! Just keep focused on what you're writing and what you should be doing! Also, finding a group of writers who will critique for you, hold you accountable and be a sounding board b/c they understand is important. I have a small group of women who also write and are authors. We've journeyed this long road together, holding each other up, praying for one another and cheering each other on. I highly recommend finding a group like this! I hope this helps.
Warmly,
Jessica(less)

But the catch is you can only bid based on what you see from a distance. No digging around inside first is allowed. So many ideas sprang up.(less)

2023 Chronological Bible Study!

Hey friend!

Have you ever read your Bible chronologically? I’ve been reading this way for some time and I love it. I’ll be starting a 2023 bible study through a Facebook group. We’ll be reading the Tyndale One Year Chronological Bible.

If it’s not in your budget, there’s a reading plan you can download from the Facebook group. I’ll be teaching through a live video in the group at 9am Wednesdays

Jessica Patch is on page 50 of 368 of A Cry in the Dark: When researching the Kentucky hills and hollers, I contacted Shane Simmons from Hillbilly Talk with Shane Simmons. He visits hollers and talks a lot about them and the history. He's really interesting. The videos are entertaining and informative. He was a lot of help to me and patient with my dozens of questions. You should check out his FB page!
