Wanted to announce an interview with me on the Aficionado Ezine. I'm excited to announce that I've also got an interview coming up over at Novel Journey. I'll let you know when. My website is in transition right now--so I hope I can get that up and running in time.

~specializes in polishing fiction book proposals~


Double Crit is a unique freelance editing service that offers high-level critiques of fiction book proposals from two experienced editors. Whether a writer is preparing for a conference or getting ready to submit their manuscript to editors and agents, Double Crit can help.

Double Crit is here to help with book proposal formatting, query letters, synopses and story structure as well as the first thirty pages of the manuscript. They can assist with the opening hook, back-cover copy, active and passive voice, showing vs. telling, character development, spiritual threads, and point of view.

Double Crit sharpens proposals to double your edge in the publishing world.

Double Crit Editorial Services is the brain-child of Ronie Kendig and Sara Mills. Ronie and Sara were brought together as friends and critique partners because they are both represented by agent.

Through networking with other writers, Sara & Ronie saw a gaping need for high-level editing services for writers who want to attend writers conferences with proposals that are polished and ready to impress. Thus, Double Crit was born.

A great book proposal can open publishing house doors for a writer, and Double Crit can to help you to tighten your proposal to sharpen your edge in the publishing world.

CSFF Blog Tour: Sharon Hinck

"Mark," I whispered, tugging his sleeve so he'd lean down, "why all this empty space?" In this very funtctional and practical world, the extravagance and luxury were a startling contrast.

Mark put his mouth so close to my ear that his words tickled. "It's to leave room for the One. This is where we welcome Him."

God, how can you make me feel so hungry and so full at the same time? And why do I want to run toward you when I also want to run away?

The above lines from The Restorer--just some of the reasons I love Christian fantasy. Revelation that can only come through parables. There was a spiritual theme. . .a scripture, in fact, that resonated throughout the book for me. It's not referred to in the novel, just something I saw in the story. But believing that there was no way I could forget, I failed to write it down. Like Susan Mitchell, I am a "soccer mom" so perhaps being preoccupied and overwhelmed makes me prone to forgetfulness. Please pray with me that I remember before the end of this blog tour.

I remember how excited we were several months ago (or has it been a year?) when we heard that NavPress had signed Sharon Hinck's The Sword of Lyric Series. Finally, I received my copy of The Restorer. I know as a mom myself, I was anxious to read a fantasy through the eyes of someone with whom I could totally relate.

Like you, I'm hoping The Restorer will be the beginning of a new trend for the CBA--Christian fantasy!
