Did you ever have to write an essay about your summer activities when you went back to school each Fall? Continue reading
What I’m really asking with this title is: how many pairs of eyes does it take to edit a book? Continue reading
Dear friends – A few years ago, I accepted a challenge to write a novel – 50,000 words in the 30 days – with the encouragement of a free on-line writing community, NaNoWriMo. Since then, I have had lots of help editing my book before submitting my manuscript for consideration.
Writing a book is one thing. Getting it published and promoted is another thing altogether. There are so many options for submitting manuscripts, and I found great ideas and instructions online from Michael Hyatt. I used the advice in his helpful book Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World to publicize my book through social media. I also followed Jeff Walker’s instructions from Product Launch Formula to promote my book.
This website in one important tool that I use to get the message out about my Christian fiction novel, “Elephant in the Room.” Here you will find interesting information about the challenging subject addressed in the book: our bad eating habits. More than just writing about my book, I want to use this website to encourage you to glorify God in your eating habits by studying the Bible, putting off sin, and putting on righteousness in your daily lives.
Who am I to talk to you about what and why you eat? You can get to know me better on the page About Kristen. I’m also excited to write blog posts about some of my interests including writing books, teaching Sunday School, homeschooling, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Please explore everything that this website has to offer. (I learned how to build it and use it for free using WordPress.org!)
Thanks for checking out my website. For more information about my book, please CLICK ON THIS LINK FOR “ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM.” If you want your own copy of the book, you can purchase it in print or e-book formats from Dove Christian Publishers or from Amazon.

By the way, I took the challenge again and wrote books in November 2016 and November 2017. Have you ever thought about writing a book? Do you want to join me next November in the challenge? Let me know in the comment section below.
