His Sign 2: The Ezra Solution — New Release!

December of 2018 I released a different kind of short novel called His Sign: The Wait Is Over. I created it as a modern allegory, fictional, but intending to convey spiritual truth. I was kind of getting tired with the popular Nephilim obsession. His Sign: The Wait Is Over But, in the interest of giving …

The Men of the Realmlands: Finally a Series

If you look at The Baron's Ring up on Amazon, it may shock you to discover that it was published in 2010. Yes, ten years ago I produced this Historical Romantic Suspense story of a handsome prince, Tristan, literally swept away from his father's funeral to a land where a damsel in distress, enslaved by …

Waiting for a Sign? — Post by Mary C. Findley

  Many people know that I've spent the last two years not writing much of anything. A few blog posts, some editing work, but the only publications in those two years have been volume 5 of our homeschool curriculum, Conflict of the Ages V: The Ancient World, Student and Teacher Editions and the summary version, …

What in the World Is Steampunk and Why Would a Christian Write About It? FFVP Author post by Sophronia Belle Lyon

  I don't know why it's become popular to attach "punk" to music, fashion, and literary genre, but it is what it is.  Steampunk can find expression in all these outlets, but many people say it originated in fashion or clothing. It's a style that draws on the Victorian time period, including  top hats, cravats, …

Reviews of Christian Books … A Little Something for Everyone!

http://www.amazon.com/Emalines-Gift-Christian-Chronicles-ebook/dp/B00916VWUQ I thought a lot about Harry Potter and X-Men when I was reading this, but I loved the emphasis in this book on the true source of special powers and the real heart attitude the author states is necessary to keep these powers under control and growing. People can use or misuse gifts like …

This is amazing! A novel, and  soon to be an RPG-Based SciFi/Fantasy/Steampunk creation! It would make a stunning addition to the collection of anyone who loves these genres. Please take a look at these amazing images (And these are just tiny samples! You have to see the real stuff!) and then visit with my friend …

Dressing up for the Holidays: Free Images to Help You Make Ebook Covers

There isn't any one magic charm that forces readers to buy your book, but certainly a great cover will at least tempt them to linger and consider. If you've already put your ebook out into cyberspace with a less-than perfect cover, it's not too late to make it better. I just ran across a site …

Review of John Carter of Mars Movie

  Review of John Carter of Mars If you haven't watched this movie but plan to, keep in mind that Edgar Rice Burroughs is one of the "founding fathers" of modern fantasy and Sci Fi writing. His style is not as memorable as Tolkien or Verne or Wells, and it's been a long, long time …

Review of Descended: Jett by Dana Pratola

This book reminded me of Tamed by Sarah Witenhafer, especially in that neither of these books is just a thin rehash of the Modern Romantic Fantasy about a reclusive rich guy with a BIG secret. Multilayered characters are a huge plus for me, since I struggle to read fiction in modern settings. Pratola gave me …

Can Fantasy/SciFi Be Christian? by Michael J. Findley

I intended to make this a review of Shawn Lamb's book All0n, Book 1. Instead it morphed as I wrote it into a personal view of what makes good Christian fantasy/SciFi. Though I have written fiction, I usually write nonfiction. I read fiction, such as The Hobbit, The Lord of The Rings, War and Peace, …

Mysteries, Characters and Distractions: A review of Allon by Shawn Lamb

Allon is the first in a fantasy/allegory series by Shawn Lamb. The biggest mystery is who you can and cannot trust. Lamb presents characters, some only briefly, but startles us with their motives and revelations of good or bad character, and the consequences of their actions. Beware of jumping to conclusions. Some things are predictable …

Worlds to Save With Five Minute Armies

At first I was kind of put off by the idea of a college student pulled into an alternate world and larger than life adventure. What new thing could Steve Biddison bring to a genre that I think started with Alice in Wonderland? But there's at least potential here for a great allegory. Biddison's got …

Writing and Reading Science Fiction and Fantasy

Science Fiction can glorify God if the writer can keep his facts straight. It's a haven for uniformitarianism, the perfectibility of man, in short, secularism of all kinds. But since true Science is based in the Scriptures, true Science Fiction must be based in factual information and reasonable speculation based on what may happen. Man …

Principles of Writing Fiction

It's hard to say when people began writing fiction, but it has been used for millennia to communicate truth. Seems strange to say that something that isn't true can teach truth, but good fiction always has done that. Using characters, settings or events that didn't actually happen, writers create a vehicle by which to make …

Comments on The Little Prince by Antoine de Sainte-Exupery

"But if you tame me, my life will be filled with sunshine. ..." The fox to the Little Prince in the story of that name by Antoine de Sainte-Exupery People have tried to make me like The Little Prince for many years. I have read excerpts from it. Usually I don't even respond when people …
