Writing Fiction Right – Gail Gaymer Martin, the author of Writing the Christian Romance with over 40 books in print, says “Learning to write well is the task of anyone wanting to be published in fiction.

If you want to write quality fiction, then hopefully this blog can provide you with some helpful information.”
My Book Therapy – Susan May Warren, award-winning author of nearly 20y books, says “In Book Therapy you are guided through the elements of a book, learning one-on-one with someone who has crafted words (sometimes misbehaving words!) into successful stories and suffered through the process of bringing fiction to life. You’re going to get “tools” from book therapy, questions to ask yourself or your characters, exercises to help yourself grow as a writer and storyteller. You will walk away as your own book therapist, armed with the ability to talk a book off the ledge and onto the shelf.” Rachel Hauck is also part of the Book Therapy team and they are available for paid professional critquing/editing services.

If you’re ready to treat your writing as a business, Tiffany Colter can give you the tools you need.”- Susan Lohrer, editor of Christian romance and women’s fiction
