Speculative Fatih

There's a wonderful group blog, made up of Christian writers and readers with a heart for beautiful, skilled, artistic fiction. It's called "Speculative Faith," because they particularly blog about "speculative" fiction that explores themes of faith - meaning the kind of stories that imaginatively ask, "What if?" These may be fantasy tales of amazing creatures and foreign worlds, or science fiction novels set in far off planets or the distant future. I know several of the bloggers personally, and they are faith-filled and thoughtful folk.

On Friday, I visited the blog to talk about The Restorer-Expanded Edition.

I even shared a secret about one character in the comments section.

Please stop by and feel free to post your thoughts, too!

Christmas Decor for Book Lovers

Over the weekend, I saw a great Christmas decorating idea that appealed to the "book person" in me, and decided to copy and adapt it.

Create simple jackets for books of various sizes, printing "titles" on 8 1/2 x 11 paper or cardstock.

Stack, and tie with a decorative ribbon.

I chose John 1:14, because as a writer, I love that one of Jesus' titles is "The Word."

May the Incarnate Word reveal His glory to you this Christmas season!

Begonia Blossoms

It may be close to zero outdoors, but inside, my begonia plant has two new blossoms!
