Unfortunately, a lot of Christian readers prefer the rated G type stories. But there is a niche market out there of people who like to read about real conflict. Just be honest and be yourself. I've written about every taboo subject out there and most people find the stories insightful, but there are a few people who hate them because the characters aren't perfect and mess up a lot. So technically if you write a good story and word gets out that it's a good story and the writing is good, then you'll get a readership that way. The only other option is to sell-out and write straight up secular fiction (which is impossible for me to do) or write stuff with no depth just to make sure you don't offend anyone (also not me.) I may not be getting rich, but I know that my books do touch readers hearts and even if it only changes one person's life, that's enough to keep me going. Sorry for such a long answer. (less)

My review of Mindful Eating for Lasting Weight Loss by Simone E. Clark

About the book:It is estimated that 45 million Americans go on a diet every year, yet most of those who manage to lose weight regain it in a matter of years.The diet industry thrives on our desire to lose weight, but ultimately, it does more to trim our finances than it does to trim our waistlines.The truth is that the more we diet, the more out of touch we become with our bodies.Every second

I wish! I had a deadline that I just finished a few days ago, but I had a trip to visit my dad who is terminally ill so that bumped it forward, then I was sick and had stuff back up. I just need to wade through the Carol books now that the Grace Awards are over. Then there are the blog tours. It never ends. I do have it slated to read hopefully no later than June. I will get to it sooner if I can. I just got swamped.

Sounds good. I have a romance that I'd let to sell to Harlequin one of these days. But first I have to fulfill all of my other contracts.


Harlequin Books Hi Michelle, I'm pleased to meet you and look forward to discussing books with you. If you ever have any questions about any of the titles on my shelves or about eHarlequin.com and all it has to offer, please ask. I'll be happy to answer. I’ll also update news when I can for example; did you know that in March Silhouette Desires will be putting out their 2000th book? The authors are celebrating with a special blog on eHarlequin.com :).


Michelle Cool. When you finish let me know what you think. Several people who have read all my books said they liked this one best. :)

I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads.

We’re both very green, but we’ve met so many people on this site willing to reach out and offer advice or a guiding hand.
Blessings,
