Update: My New Website

Alright, so I'm finally able to share with you the big news. I'm being offered a contract with Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolina's! If the timing is right they will publish my YACF manuscript, "Purple Moon", in 2011. I met the publisher at my first writing conference Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writer's Conference.

Also, sorry for the lack of update. I will continue to post writing tips on this blog, but I have also now opened another blog at

God bless!



  1. wow that's amazing! just one question out of curiosity: do they publish just any manuscript or only ones that they feel are good?

  2. Thanks!

    And Kathleen to answer your question, every publisher goes through their manuscript submissions and decides to publish one or not. I don't think there is a publishing company that will just publish anyone who submits. You can self-publish, though, but that requires lots of money. Hope that answered your question. =)

  3. I thought that was how it went, but I've heard about self publishing and I wasn't sure how it worked. Thanks!
