This is where you'll find updates for our group! We won't blow the thread up but rather use it for reminders, notifications, etc.

It's also that time of year when we look for ideas from YOU! What would you like to see in the group for 2018? Something that MUST stay, something that needs to go, or something you wish we had! Whatever it is, we'd love to hear from you!

Looking forward to another great year with CFD!

message 6: by Sharon (new)

Sharon | 1 comments Hello, I've recently joined this group. I love Christian fiction and am a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. I have a book of short stories for elementary age children being published sometime this year. The stories are Biblical, historical and contemporary and each contains a devotion. I am currently having a giveaway on Goodreads of "A Flash of Romance." This is a collection of flash fiction. It is not actually a Christian book but it is moral and contains a story about the Jewish tragedy of Masada. I would love for someone in this group to win a copy so please find "A Flash of Romance" on the giveaway list and register. Thanks, Sharon Rene

Sharon, welcome to Christian Fiction Devourers! We're so glad you've found us.

For future reference, we ask that our authors post about their books in the "Authors... Spotlight Your Book Here" folder, which you may find here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

It's a pleasure to meet you.

As a friendly reminder, please ask a moderator's permission before creating a new thread. It's possible we already have a thread going for what you want to discuss, and any of the moderators will be able to point you in the right direction for that. If there is something new you'd like to discuss that we don't have a thread for, please ask a moderator for permission. We may ask questions to see if it's something we'll allow to be discussed in the group, and we'll get a decision to you as soon as we can. Thank you.

Thanks Andrea. I never saw a date so didn't put it up.


message 35: by Andrea, Hospitality Coordinator (new)

Andrea Cox (andreacox) | 2019 comments Mod
I didn't see a date either, so I made one up. ;) There are several of us reading the book right now, and a friend in the group asked me when it was going up. I figured it would be okay to just pull something together.

Loraine (librarydiva) | 2655 comments Mod
That's fine. I don't mind someone else jumping in and setting up the thread at all.

Thanks for all your hard work, Beth! I hardly ever know right away which book to nominate anyway, so the extra time to think about it is wonderful.

Folks, my updates are up too.

Hello, CFD folks! Have you signed up to WIN a copy of Sandra Byrd's new devotional yet? Here's the link, for your convenience: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

It will make a wonderful gift too, so even if you already have a copy or don't do devotionals yourself, feel free to sign up for a friend. Surely we all know at least one reader friend to gift it to, right? :)
