Sundin #D70 ©2008 Linda Johnson Photography web (2) Greeting from Sarah Sundin in California, where it’s finally feeling like fall. Today I have the pleasure of interviewing multi-published author, Linda Kozar, who has some seriously clever answers. What do you expect from someone whose latest title is Babes with a BeatitudeLinda Kozar

Linda, how did you get into writing?

I started out freelancing personal interest stories for various newspapers, earning next to nothing but developing valuable writing skills and learning to work on tight deadlines. Then in 2003, I decided I’d had enough of that stuff and determined to put my efforts toward writing a book.  Of course, the first book I wrote wasn’t the one that got published. Neither was the second. Well, not yet anyway. You never know.

Dan Walsh here, writing from Daytona Beach, FL.

I know some of you were able to attend ACFW’s annual conference a few weeks ago in Indianapolis. Many who could not, have probably read some of the great articles written about the wonderful time we had (just remembered that old postcard line: “Good time was had by all”).

Sundin #D70 ©2008 Linda Johnson Photography web (2) Greetings from Sarah Sundin on a warm September day in California. I’ve entered a new phase in my life as my husband and I moved our oldest son into the dorms for his freshman year of college. New phases make you consider the future – what if the future involves caring for your parents? Did you know 25 percent of Americans are caring for an aging parent?Candy Arrington

Today I have the honor of interviewing Candy Arrington, a speaker and prolific writer of magazine articles. Her most recent book is When Your Aging Parent Needs Care: Practical Help for this Season of Life from Harvest House. What an important topic! Her book covers: understanding your aging parent’s perspective on illness, aging, and giving up control; helping your parent with limited mobility, memory, and resources; effectively organizing forms, prescriptions, care, housing, and finances; and finding personal balance by nurturing their own health, faith, and family. Doesn’t that sound fantastic? Read More →

As Christian authors we all have a heart to minister to people, but the reality is we also need to make money and market the messages we write. One way to help build passive income, market, and write is with online writing. There are various ways to get paid for online writing, we can usually link from our blog or website to articles we write online, and we can write content that reflects our message.

Sherry Kyle Hi there! Sherry Kyle here, writing from California. There
are a lot of exciting things happening in my writing life, one of which is
joining this wonderful group of like-minded authors at CAN. I’m so glad to be a
part. Another wonderful event is the release of my new book, The Christian Girl’s Guide to Style, for
tween girls on September 30. I can’t tell you how much I’ve been looking
forward to its arrival. But something else besides writing and books has been
consuming my thoughts. Family. Husband. Children. Siblings. Parents. Let me backtrack just a little.
