Bits and Pieces

Just a few things I thought you might be interested in—nothing deep. I learned from CSFF member Robert Treskillard that agent Steve Laube has joined the blogosphere. Agent blogs are some of my favorite, much as agent panels are at writers’ conferences.

I haven’t mentioned it earlier (though some of you may have noticed the link), but the Books and Such agents and associates (Janet Kobobel Grant and company) are blogging as well. These blogs provide great information, making it much easier to learn about the book business.

Four-time Christy Award winning author Karen Hancock is switching her blog over to WordPress (yea! 😀 ), so you’ll want to bookmark and link to Writing from the Edge 2.

Speaking of Karen, the CSFF Blog Tour is featuring her latest release, The Enclave in July. I’m a little over half way (it’s a big book by today’s standards—nearly 500 pages), and completely engrossed in the story. It’s all I can do to put it down and get myself going in the morning. I love the reading experience when it so puts me in the fictive world that I think about it when I’m away and look forward to going back. That’s what Karen’s writing does for me. Already I want to talk about the book and to recommend it to book lovers.

And speaking of CSFF, don’t forget to vote in the poll for the June CSFF Top Tour Blogger Award. It is a very, very close 5 blogger race and we need every vote.

Rewrite, Reword, Rework In case you’ve been wondering whether or not I’ll be discussing the writing craft again here at A Christian Worldview of Fiction, I should tell you, I’ve started an editing blog called Rewrite, Reword, Rework. I set it up primarily as a place where potential clients can go to learn what services I offer and what my rates are.

However, as I began working on it, I realized that venue would be perfect for what I’m calling Self-editing Tips. That’s the real blog. So far the posts are all shorter than the ones here and focused on some aspect of the how-to’s of writing. I’m actually having fun with it and am ready to start inviting people on over to visit. So count yourself among the invited! 😉

Thanks to Julie for choosing A Christian Worldview of Fiction for the “Humane Award.” humaneaward Here’s the definition Julie quoted:

The Humane Award is in order to honor certain bloggers that I feel are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn’t for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendships through the blog world.

Well, I don’t know as my commenters aim for sweetness, but I’m OK with that. 🙂 Better than OK, actually. I like comments that make me think, but I like encouraging ones too.

So here are my top five visiting bloggers who leave thoughtful or encouraging comments from time to time:


  1. Oh! Sweet. 🙂


  2. Thanks for the mention of The Enclave, Becky. I’m delighted to know that you’re engrossed!


  3. Becky, you are such a sweetheart! Thank you for that kind thought! And I’m glad to read your thoughts on the Enclave. I’ll be reading that one too in July. We’ll have to swap thoughts!

    Oh, and I just read Donita Paul’s latest and loved it!! You speculative types will have me trained to understand this genre before long! Ha! ha!


  4. Sweet that you won the award, Nicole? 😉

    Karen, I’m enjoying the book sooooo much.

    Kim, we have Donita’s book down for our September tour, so I have a little wait. Glad to know you loved it. Yes, fantasy gets under your skin, so maybe, just maybe we’ll win you over! 🙂



  5. I totally agree about The Enclave. I finished it three days after I got it — totally riveted all the way!


  6. Aww thanks. Too bad I missed this for being on vacation last week!


  7. Hey, Jason, no comment is ever late as far as I’m concerned. Hope you had a great vacation! (Why did WordPress change their cute emoticons for these ugly ones!? 😮 )
