When it comes to blogging and newsletters, 2016 was a terrible year. When it comes to everything else, it was really quite remarkable. Our Written Lives published 11 new books in 2016, and White Hart Publications published 1 new book.
Life is Busy!
In 2016, I finished writing and publishing my third book, my personal story, Facing Myself: An Introspective Look at Cosmetic Surgery. I taught 4 “Writing and Publishing Your First Book” classes in three different states, and attended the Christian Product Expo in Nashville as an author to promote two of my books.
In September, I accepted a job offer and moved to San Antonio, Texas. In addition to running Our Written Lives, I am now working full-time in the Air Force Wounded Warrior Program. Life is busy, but it’s not too busy to keep me from what I love doing the most: helping people share their stories.
But Not Too Busy for New Books!
2017 is starting off with a kick with the newest OWL book, Stealth Journey: An Uncommon Fight Against Cancer, Fear, Tradition, and Pharmaceuticals, by Naomi Havens. Naomi shares her real-life journey of surviving cancer by pursuing the uncommon natural path, and saying no to chemotherapy and radiation. Learn more at www.victoryhaven.org.
In April, Laura Aranda’s novel, Pushing Back the Darkness, will captivate readers as Claire and her boyfriend Cole begin a thrilling quest to stop human trafficking and save Morgan Ann, a foster child kidnapped by foreigners.
Emra Smith, author of Your Story Matters, will be releasing her second book in 2017. She has been trailblazing the country, spreading the Hope of Christ through her Hope Walk and Hope Dolls, as well as empowering women to share their stories. Her new book will feature short stories of women who have survived various life circumstances and moved forward in victory. Learn more at www.emrasmith.com.
