Top Five. . .

We’re halfway through. It’s been fun looking at the big things that have happened in our lives over the past year. Thanks for sharing yours with me. You guys ROCK. ~~~ Number THREE: I got an agent! <———-NO, not THAT kind of agent. A literary agent!———————————-> You might remember the post (THE CALL) detailing the fun, crazy, and exciting time I had last January that led to signing with Cari Foulk at Tribe Literary Agency. *whew* That was very exciting. The road to publication is a bit curvy, hilly, but for the most part, really awesome. I’m having a blast,[…]

Heaven’s Fire

Hey, everyone. Ashley here. I was totally honored when Lynn asked me to lead off the week of her new blog design. But then again, I knew she was going to pick me—I mean, I do have telepathy…Heck, I even know what you’re thinking right now. Just kidding. I was on this blog once back when it was called Light of Truth, but now it’s all redesigned and even has a new name. Catch the Rush…sounds fun if you ask me. But then again, Lynn is known for her wicked-fast novel writing, long—but fast—bike rides, and if I remember correctly,[…]

Big changes to the blog begin Monday the 14th!! My characters are taking over for the week, introducing a new blog look, talking music, movies, and fun stuff.

The Call

So, did you celebrate yesterday with the Kool and the Gang song? Well, as promised here is the story we’re celebrating. ~~~ I started on this journey to publication May of 2008 by joining ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers). I’d had this 87,000-word novel, Light of Truth, but no knowledge of what I should do as my next step. A fellow writer suggested I join ACFW, so I did. I got connected with a fantastic critique group where I learned the art of handling critiques and rewriting. Over the next eighteen months, I wrote and wrote, attended conferences, and found[…]
