Greetings from Marti Pieper in looking-almost-like-spring Seneca, South Carolina! Today I have the pleasure of introducing another dear author friend to you on the CAN blog. Cheri Cowell, whom I first met through Word Weavers International, is not only a longtime friend but a multi-published author and, for the past several years, a publisher herself. In fact, a number of years ago, I first learned about CAN through some of her posts!

Welcome, Cheri! Please tell us about your book.

A Chat With Cheri Cowell

Greetings from Marti Pieper in Mount Dora, Florida, where we’ve had lots of rain every day this week. And we’re not complaining, since drought conditions have led to increased fire danger. The subject of today’s interview, Cheri Cowell, has also had extra rain in her area. Since she’s one of my fellow Orlando-area CAN authors, when my home has rain, hers usually does, too!

Welcome, Cheri! I’m so glad to share this time together. My first question is one every author loves: Would you please tell us about your latest book, One Story, One Mission, One God?

Identifying Your North Star

books-cowell_Marketing Tips From Cheri Cowell

The Star of Bethlehem, sometimes referred to as the Christmas North Star, revealed the birth of Jesus. The star appears only in the Gospel of Matthew, where astrologers from the east are led to the Christ child. As writers we, too, have a North Star–perhaps several North Stars–that lead us on our journey.
