Jan, writing to you from my desk in the foothills of the California Sierras. As I’m enjoying a cooler day after an unseasonably warm weekend, I’m thinking about the writer’s spiritual wells.

When I hover my mouse over my word-processing icon on my computer desktop, it says, “Abide in me and I in you for apart from Me you can do nothing”–from John 15:5. Sometimes I chase ahead in my busyness without abiding; it’s not long before I feel the drain.

As writers we fill our wells in many ways. Over the years, I have either bought or been given books that help fill my well. For your perusal and encouragement, I thought I’d share a few of those with some excerpts . . .

Hello, Friends!

Susie Larson here…

I post on the fourth Thursday of every month and I’m thankful to share this time with you. Last month I shared the story of how I got my start in speaking. This month I want us to take a closer look behind the scenes.

In the fall and spring seasons, I travel about three weekends out of four. During the winter months, I drop back to only one or two weekend events per month. Often, as I’m out and about, women share with me how they feel sure God has called them to become a conference speaker. I think that’s wonderful! The world is full of hurting, desperate people and there is enough work to go around for all of us.

compassion and guidance, they partner with readers to walk them through
the challenges of caregiving by providing the support and direction
necessary to be spiritually, physically, and emotionally prepared for
what they face day by day. From Harvest House.

Hello, this is Mildred Colvin with my first interview. To quickly introduce myself, I writeJanetweb[11]  romance for Heartsong Presents and have a 3-in-1 reprint just out this month titled Prairie Hearts. In fact I thought you’d enjoy seeing the cover of my book rather than my face this time. M. J. Conner is the pen name my sister and I used when we first started writing. This book will likely be the last one using that name.

    I’m interviewing Janet Lee Barton, a sister Heartsong Presents author.  Welcome Janet. Let’s learn more about you and your efforts to market your books.
