t almost sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it? How can a Christian woman write zombie fiction? This is something I struggled with since I became a devoted Christian a little over a year ago (which is also why I have not written or published anything since). I prayed a lot about my calling in life. I knew it was writing, but now that I had a new set of beliefs and values, how was that to be integrated into my fiction? Because I was a Christian, could I only write Christian Fiction now? Zombie fiction had been a huge part of my writing since I started back in 2012. How was I supposed to write about such horrors now?
As I research and write my first nonfiction Christian book, "Warrior Princess: Claim Your Identity in Christ", I wanted to start reaching out to women all over the world to encourage them and help them through trials and tough times, or even just daily struggles. I decided the best way to do that was to make a companion website to the book.
There are going to be chapters on self care, identity, marriage and dating, family, friends, home, work, hobbies, rest, and more. There is no set date for the release of this book yet, but it will be coming out in 2019.
Why is it so hard to not let life get in the way of writing? Even my dedication to blogging has waned. I know that I should carve out 30 minutes each day to sit and write, whether on this blog, in my book, or elsewhere. I am doing A LOT of journaling, so I guess that can be considered writing.
About a year ago I started selling used books on Amazon. They make you put a name for your business so I just popped in the name of a bookstore in one of my books, The Quivering Quill Bookshop. I still adore that name, but now feel it's too long and when you think of quivering on its own, you don't really think of writing literature. So I've shortened it to:
