Countdown to Release: 8 Days, How Many Words?

The author in me is always interested in other authors' word-counts. Usually when I write a story, I just write until the idea's out. However, for "Quest for Leviathan," I wanted to write at least 4,000 words so that it would be well above the flash-fiction category, but I didn't think I had a novella-suitable idea. Sure enough, it totaled at...

Which of course, I realize after-the-fact that if I had added JUST one more word, we'd have an even 4, 350. But I don't notice these things until too late. ;)

How does "Quest for Leviathan" line up in my short-story word counts?
Letters from a Scatter-Brained Sister - 7,000+ words
Quest for Leviathan - 4,300+ words
Coffee Cake Days - 3,250+ words
Hartly Manor - 3,000+ words
Letter of Love - 2,900+ words
Maggie's Hope Chest - 2,700+ words
Noelle's Gift - 2,700+ words
Peace, Be Still - 2,600+ words

That makes it my second-longest short story.

Countdown to Release: 9 Days, Favorite Quote

I'm fairly certain I'm not the only author guilty of coming up with a quote that HAS to go into the manuscript and then working the story around the quote. Such was the case for "Quest for Leviathan." The quote, in essence, is not a new quote nor is it original to me. It comes from a thought I've heard portrayed in sermons and stood out to me as mind-blowing and very necessary for us as humans to understand. I was very happy to weave it into the wisdom of Joed, as he counseled Anath.

Countdown to Release: 10 Days, What is a Trireme?

Anath’s vessel, Valor, is based off the Minoam’s Trireme. I was first introduced to this war-vessel years ago, when I watched the classic Ben-Hur (1959 Charlton Heston version that I adored as a pre-teen; little do you know how much you glean as a child!). But it wasn’t until I was researching ancient ships that I realized that this was the perfect type of vessel for Anath to use. It took a bit of research to figure out how to portray this ramming-ship. I cannot verify that triremes were actually in use during Anath’s era, so I did use a bit of historical license there.

My illustrator, Natalie, did a fantastic job capturing the beauty of this vessel! If you’d like an even more thorough introduction to this ship, visit:

Countdown to Release: 11 Days, Some Q&A

In preparation for "Quest for Leviathan's" blog tour, I have been having several bloggers send me interview questions. I thought that it would be fun to pick a few of their questions and answer them here. So here are three Q&A's about “Quest for Leviathan.”

Q) Do you think you will do more stories like Quest for Leviathan?
A) I have longed to write a seafaring story for years now. It actually wasn’t until after I was into “Quest for Leviathan” that I realized I was finally doing something I had dreamed of doing! I imagine that it will not be my last sea-faring story. As for the era, I have several other ideas for Biblical-fiction type stories. So it won’t be the last for those either, Lord willing!

Q) Since this is Biblical fiction, were you nervous about taking too much historical license?
A) Oh yes! I love historical fiction, but what I love most about it is being accurate in my portrayal of the era. Since there are limited resources for researching this far back I had to use my imagination a lot, and that definitely made me nervous. As for the Biblical-fiction side, because I don’t actually portray any Bible characters, I wasn’t nervous about that (actually, that was the reason I didn’t portray Biblical characters; I would be too nervous there!).

Q) What was your favorite scene to write?
A) Ooh, I definitely had a favorite scene, and that was when Anath actually faces Leviathan! I loved exploring Job 41 and then portraying Leviathan on the pages of my fictional story. Not to mention a sea-battle between man and monster! The confrontation between the two was definitely my favorite!

Now, readers, do you have any Q&A? Next Monday I might try to answer more questions! 

Scripture Graphics #93

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
(Luke 9:23-24)
And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
(Mark 10:29-30)
God’s ways are not our ways. Where we see loss, He sees an opportunity in which to bless us, He is not trying to steal good things from us. Rather, He is longing to bless us—and not just in heaven, but now, here on earth. Do we cling to that which is temporal and refuse to follow Him—thus robbing from ourselves the very blessings He wants to give us?

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
(Mark 11:22)
Faith is a big thing today. We are often exhorted to “have faith.” Have faith, and it will all turn out. Have faith and hope for the best. But what is the object of our faith? Faith in anyone or anything but God is misplaced faith. It’s not just about how strong our faith is, but about how powerful our God is. So, do we have faith…IN God?

“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” Mark‬ ‭12:30-31
We know these verses well, which sometimes lead us to quote or read them in a hurry. But have I stopped to truly ponder these words? “All” is all—every part, completely, wholly. Jesus describes more though: ALL our heart, soul, mind, strength. That should leave no part in me for self-love, self-exaltation, selfishness. Above that, our love is to go next in line to our neighbor (according to the Good Samaritan parable, “neighbor” means anyone who crosses our paths). This powerful, all-consuming love for God and others can be overwhelming—because I know my selfishness and shortcomings. But God has not given us the command without help: “but the fruit of the Spirit is love...” He is ready to help us love—but first, we need to realize how we lack love and how we need His help.

What attitude do we have when others violate God’s Word? Are we grieved because of the neglect of God’s Word, or does a fleshlier attitude take place?

What well-known verse has taken a new meaning for you lately?

Countdown to Release: 13 Days, How Did it All Begin?

Every story begins with an idea. Sometimes, they’re big ideas, and sometimes they’re small. Sometimes, I get an idea that has great potential, but I have absolutely no clue where it’s going from there. That was what happened with “Quest for Leviathan.” 

It was June 2017 and I was reading through Job when the idea came. I jotted down a thought in my phone and saved it for later ponderings. The entirety of the idea? “A boy whose father was killed by Leviathan. He is angry at L, and he is angry at God—yet just like Job needed to realize the power of God, so does he.”

Little did I know that this idea was one that would take a full year to get from idea to publication ("Just a short story" should be easy, right? Not so with "Quest for Leviathan!" but looking back, God's timing is impeccable and He knew that June 2018 was exactly when I needed to publish this story!)

Ever Faithful | Book Review

I got this book in, and immediately my sisters and I had to “ooh and ahh” over the cover and inside pages. It is truly a beautiful book and a delight to just look at and flip through with a firm cover that will last throughout the years.

I obviously didn’t have time to read all 365 devotionals in order to review this book, but the portions that I read were amazingly deep for their simplicity and shortness. They are like little crumbs of manna to get us going each day. Whether it is a reminder to step away from our phones and spend quality time with God, relying on His strength, or just a list of encouraging verses, the devotionals are good little thought-provoking reminders to put our focus on Jesus Christ throughout the day.

I’m looking forward to using this in 2019 as an addition to my devotions.

Proverbs Journible | Book Review

My Review

The idea behind this journal is fascinating: copy the verses and, while you’re copying them, you’re reflecting on them to journal about it on the right hand side. I cannot say how many times I’ll skim through a verse, but when I slow down enough to copy it, so much more comes out of it and it is more meaningful and I come away with something far greater than just the first skim. So I really appreciate the format of this journal.

It has a hard cover that seems like it will last for years and includes a ribbon bookmark. The right pages are reserved for copying the Scriptures (I will mention that the writer will need to have smaller penmanship to fit on the lines presented) and the left pages for thoughts. There doesn’t seem to be a ton of room for in-depth thought for people who are used to individual Bible study, but it would be a fantastic journal for believers getting into really deciphering God’s Word.

*I received this book from Celebrate Lit and happily provided my honest review*

About these Books

Title: Journible: The 17:18 Series
Author: Robert Wynalda (a local businessman) and Dr. Joel R. Beeke (President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary)
Genre: Non-fiction, Bible study tool
Release Date: Series released in 2009
Why the 17:18 series?
In Deuteronomy 17, Moses is leaving final instructions concerning the future of Israel. As a prophet of God, Moses foretells of when Israel will place a king over the nation (v. 14). In verse 18, the king is commanded to not simply acquire a copy of the law (the entire book of Deuteronomy) from the scroll publishing house, but to hand write his own copy of the law. Thirty-four hundred years later, educators are discovering that students that physically write out their notes by hand have a much greater retention rate than simply hearing or visually reading the information. Apparently, God knew this to be true of the kings of Israel also. From such understanding came the conception of this series of books.

How to Use These Books
Each book is organized so that you can write out your very own copy of Scripture. You will be writing the Bible text only on the right hand page of the book. This should make for easier writing and also allows ample space on the left page to write your own notes and comments. From time to time a question or word will be lightly printed on the left page; these questions are to aid in further study, but should not interfere with your own notes and comments.

Scripture Graphics #92

“And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.” Mark‬ ‭4:24
This verse comes after the parable of the Sower’s seed (vs. 3-20). Though it definitely applies to receiving the Word for salvation, receiving God’s Word also links to spiritual growth. If we do not accept and apply what God reveals to us, why would He give us more? The question then is not, “am I going to church and reading my Bible?” But, “Am I being obedient and applying what I hear?”

“And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?” Mark‬ ‭4:38-40‬
The first words from the disciples’ lips were, “Carest Thou not?” It is easy to view trials and storms as an example that God does not care for our individual lives, when instead, He is allowing them to grow us in our faith. When faced with storms, we shouldn’t ask, “Do You even care what I’m going through?” But, “What do You want me to learn about You in this storm?”

The disciples’ hardened hearts prevented them from believing the power of God—even though they were eye-witnesses of Jesus’ miracles. Our hardened hearts can affect us too. We have 66 books of testimonies of God’s power, love, mercy, justice, judgment, and commands. Do our hearts believe, or are they hardened?

How often do we do daily, menial tasks with our heart focused on serving the Lord? How many tasks do we truly do “as unto the Lord?” Is our eternal perspective tainted by temporal, selfish desires, lusts, and pleasures?

First Impressions | Book Review

When it comes to Jane Austen retellings, this is probably one of the best that I’ve read, as in there was enough of Austen to know what was going on and how it was implied, but there were also enough original creativity to where I didn’t think, “Well if I wanted to read Austen, I would have just read Austen.” What Debra did with her characters was very clever and creative and fit so well for a modern “Pride and Prejudice.” If she did quote the book through the character’s modern dialogue, it wasn’t in sync with the original timeline. For example, it was in the beginning of the book that Eddi (Elizabeth) mentioned, “If I marry him, Dad will never speak to me, and if I don’t marry him, Mom will never speak to me.” It flowed into the natural conversation, was a flashback to the original story, yet wasn’t verbatim. I really liked the Austen flair recreated in a smooth fashion.

I found the story as a whole to flow very well and every POV change was perfectly timed—I was ready to see what the next person’s story had when it came.

But I gave this book three stars. Why?

One of the minor things was the characters’ vocations (and this doesn’t affect my rating). Eddi didn’t really seem very lawyer-ry. It mentioned her practice a few times, but it didn’t really feel like that was her life. Just her vocation separate from the story. Same with Jenny (Jane) and her coaching (the only reason I know she was a coach is because of the character cast in the beginning). Or maybe it’s that most typical modern people don’t include their jobs in normal conversation or off-work thoughts?

The two major things that altered my rating are what I usually point out in reviews: spiritual content and romance.

Romance first. Linda’s story (the Lydia of the retelling) was way too PG-13 for me. If it had never shown her POV, I think the story would have been fine. There were a couple of more crude comments and insinuations made by other characters, but Linda is where things really got too much for me. I can see what the author was doing, and the storyline fits well for a retelling, but… I had to skim almost every part with Linda. It goes from mentioning her taking pregnancy control pills to sleeping with men to more detailed scenes where she and a man are obviously in the middle of a sinful situation. I’d rather not go into details in my review (because I *do* try to keep these PG or above), but yeah… this is an adult book. I won’t keep it in my house because my teenage sisters might pick it up, and I definitely do not want them exposed to such content. If it weren’t for Linda’s parts, the other parts of romance really weren’t too over-the-top.

Spiritual content is harder to judge because there were a lot of mentions of God threaded throughout the whole book. But there is a difference between mentions of God, church, and praying, and really LIVING the Christian life. At one point, Eddi makes the comment, “I’m glad God means something to you, because He means a lot to me.” That was the most spiritual she was up to that point (my thoughts were, “If He does mean so much to you, then why haven’t you thought of Him or prayed to Him yet?”). I don’t wish to be harsh here, but it lacked genuine spiritual depth.

I enjoyed this book for the reasons mentioned above and really didn’t like it for reasons mentioned above.

Scripture Graphics #91

“And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Matthew‬ ‭4:3-4‬
Jesus Christ *was* God’s Son—His only begotten Son—yet satan asked “IF Thou be the Son of God...” We are the adopted children of God, and satan still accuses us, “If you’re *really* God’s child, really born again...” Though Jesus’ temptation was not doubting His salvation, the answer He gave should help us when we are faced with that struggle: live by the Word of God. Satan wanted Jesus to do an action, Jesus pointed to faith and trust in God’s Word. Doubts of salvation are often fueled by “Did I *do* enough?”—but it’s not about “doing enough” but by trusting in and living by the Word of God.

“And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” Matthew‬ ‭8:2-3
What a beautiful picture of cleansing—which applies both to salvation and sanctification. Jesus is ready and willing to cleanse us if we but ask Him. And when we do ask, He cleanses us immediately (1 John 1:9).

There is great comfort in this. Not only do we serve the same God as Abraham and all of the believers in Scripture, we also serve the eternal God—assurance of life after death.

“But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?” Matthew‬ ‭26:8‬
In others’ eyes, this woman’s decision to pour her entire alabaster box of ointment on Jesus was nothing but a waste. In Jesus’ eyes, it was no such thing. The others saw no purpose, Jesus saw a good work.
Today, our decisions in following Jesus might look to others like a waste—but they are not the ones we are following, and in eternity, they do not determine our rewards. Are temporal opinions preventing us from following the Holy Spirit?

Create! | Book Review

I enjoyed the diversity of ideas in this book. It goes from room décor to clothing to jewelry to artwork. While some ideas are ones that I wouldn’t enjoy, there were other ideas that I loved. There is such a great variety of styles that I think anyone could find several ideas that match their preference from this book. I found the instructions very easy to follow, the formatting light and enjoyable, the pictures appealing, and the tips useful.

This is a very trendy idea book, with ideas using washi tape, duct tape, burlap, and books (some of the popular craft ideas of today). It goes from more in-depth ideas where you have to pick up special supplies to ideas that use simple craft items that most people have on-hand.

I’m planning on giving this to my crafty thirteen-year-old sister and imagine that I will see several ideas utilized in the months to come.

Joey | Book Review

I like to balance my reading diet with several non-fiction books. I didn’t know anything about the horse, Joey, when I picked this book to review. But by the time I finished the book, Joey was definitely no stranger. The book takes you along the journey of how Kim Tschirret began her horse ministry, Hope Reins. The first few chapters are more about Kim and Hope Reins than it is about Joey in particular. Then, there is a portion dedicated to Joey’s stable-pal, Speckles. I’d say more or less, the latter half is exclusively about Joey (and his trainers), though. For me, none of this was a problem. I enjoyed learning about Hope Reins and grew attached to Speckles.

Being that Hope Reins is a ministry for broken children, I was gearing myself up for some content that I would shudder at, but there wasn’t anything that would keep me from handing this book to a conservative teen. There was one mention of sexual abuse (and the words were used, that was the extent of the mention), but otherwise, the book focused more on where the children were at the point that they met Joey, and how he helped them in various ways. That was super sweet and amazing. If you’re one who cries easily, then this book will definitely have you in tears.

There was definitely spiritual content in this book. I’m not going to say that I agree 100% with everything, but there wasn’t anything doctrinally that concerned me in this book. It was more of a testimony book than a preaching book. And I was very interested to see how different people were affected by the ministry at Hope Reins.

I definitely recommend this book and found it easy to read for a non-fiction.

Scripture Graphics #90

These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. (Jude 1:16)
These are characteristics of the ungodly (vs. 15), yet why do we leave these areas in our lives unchecked? Maybe we need to refocus.
“But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” (Jude ‪1:20-21‬)

What great assurance—that this is in Whom we have entrusted our lives eternally!

When we start to believe that all things were created for *our* pleasure, it steals our desire to give to God all glory, honor, and power, Only when we have a proper view of ourselves and God will we truly give Him the glory, honor, and power He deserves.

Two Children's Books | Book Reviews

This is my third book by Kristie Wilde, and I have been pleased with all of them—both with the illustrations and the message in these books. They go beyond the simple “children’s book” and give a deeper meaning that the reader can discuss with young children. This book’s theme is on the variety and contrast of animals, and how we as people have variety and contrast, and that’s simply okay, because God created us all different. It concludes with a page of information on the different animals featured in the paintings throughout the book.

As with Kristie’s other books, I enjoyed looking through the art and also seeing how she added a creative touch to the text. This is a collection I’m happy to add to my library.

*I received this book from Book Crash and happily provided my honest review*

My favorite children’s illustrations are what I think of as “soft and fuzzy.” And that is exactly the type of illustrations in this book—so that made my heart happy. There are giraffes, foxes, sloths, penguins (!!!!), and several other animal families depicted in this book

The poetry rhymed nicely in this book, featuring subjects that most children would be familiar with in normal bedtime routine. It also goes a little deeper than just physical routine and mentions counting blessings, praying, thanking God for the day, and singing about God’s love.

My youngest sister (age 8) grabbed this as soon as I opened my packaged and “oohed” and “ahhed” over the whole thing. It definitely catches the young readers’ eye.

Presumption and Partiality | Giveaway, Review, Book Tour

Several months ago, I featured several novels from the Vintage Jane Austen collection (which, *spoiler alert* is the giveaway later on in this post!!).

My Review

 This makes the fourth book of the Vintage Jane Austen series. “Pride and Prejudice” is probably the Jane Austen with which I am most familiar. I have watched various movies (repeatedly) and have read the book. I was very interested not only in seeing how Rebekah Jones retold it, but also in reading my first book by this author.

As a Christian book, I liked it. Alice (“Jane”) especially, stood out to me as a strong Christian who was striving to live by the Bible. She was very cautious to guard her heart and to live by the Scriptures. Eloise (“Lizzie”), however, though she quoted Scripture, there didn’t seem to be much actual daily devotion in her life—her thoughts didn’t tend toward the Lord much. I think she was supposed to be a character who was growing in her faith, but it was a small growth, not much.

I did really like the addition of Alice and Eloise's work with the poor, and the many discussions that induced.

There were a few surprises, but overall, it felt like I was reading “Pride and Prejudice” in a different era. I knew what was coming up next and I could almost quote the phrase that was coming (though the dialogue was not verbatim, so much of it was very close to P&P original). As I’ve already indicated in my retelling reviews, I like a retelling to surprise me. If I want to read “Pride and Prejudice,” then I’m going to read “Pride and Prejudice.” It’s just my preference. So, as far as a retelling goes, I was a little disappointed with a lack of originality. 

I had a hard time feeling the era. There were facts about cotton and hot weather, but I just had a hard time getting sucked into it. Part of that may also be because I have spent several summers working at a Navajo/Ute camp, so the Native American aspect did not at all feel real to me. It’s a completely different culture, even if you have Christian Native Americans. I tried to read it objectively, but I had to constantly remind myself that Sydney was Navajo. He didn’t seem like one. 

It is, though, quite clean. The “Lydia” (Junie) instant went a little more into the penalties and consequences of her flippant choice, and I did like the way that this thread resolved. Still, because of it (her running away with a guy), I would say maybe girls 16+ should read it?

About the Book

Title: Presumption and Partiality
Author: Rebekah Jones
Genre: Historical Christian Fiction
Release Date: November 27, 2017
Among the cotton fields and farmland of Gilbert, Arizona in the early years of the Great Depression, Mr. and Mrs. Bailey live a simple, but happy life with their five daughters on a cotton farm. When the wealthy Richard Buchanan moves to town, bringing his family, a friend, and a desire to learn about cotton, Matilda Bailey is convinced that he is the perfect candidate to marry her eldest daughter, Alice.
Richard is cheerful, friendly, and likable. His friend Sidney Dennison doesn’t make such a good impression. Eloise Bailey decides he’s arrogant and self-conceited, but when Raymond Wolfe comes to town, accusing Sidney of dishonorable and treacherous conduct, Eloise is angered at the injustice of the situation.
When the Buchanan household leaves town, Alice must turn to the Lord and face, perhaps, her most difficult test in trust, while Eloise takes a trip to visit her friend and may well discover a web of deceit that she doesn’t really want to believe exists.
