A writing update

I said the other day that I had a pending talk with an editor who is looking at one of my short stories. I suspected that he didn't like the new ending, and I was absolutely right. He really, really disliked it. But, on the other hand, he would like to see one more draft. So, in a couple of weeks I will send him another draft. I'll try to make it better!

In the meanwhile, in a bizarre and unprecedented act, I sent a query to a book editor at Bethany House fiction. He's trying to revitalize Christian fiction. So, I sent him a query for the first (and only) novel I ever wrote, "The Hinterlands." It would need heavy editing if he's even interested. Anyway, you can see his website where he answers pretty much everything you need to know about publishing and writing and where he has created a small community which is trying to build strong Christian fiction for the future. It's called Faith*In*Fiction and you can check it out here.

And if you would like to see a quality Christian short story about conversion, check this one out. The story came from a contest on the Faith*In*Fiction website.
