Letter from the Publisher

December 1st 2009

Dear Readers,

As we enter into this final month of the year, there is always the penchant for melancholy associated with the darkness and cold weather of winter. But to me, the month that we celebrate our Lord and Savior’s birth brings all new excitement.

I eagerly await the lights, the decorations, the smell of fresh cut pine, the plethora of decadently sweet Christmas treats, all the extra trips to the gym to keep those same treats from taking up residence on my lower extremities…uh, oh, well that’s another story! But you get my drift.

People are just so much nicer to each other at this time of year. I think the Lord purposely softens people’s hearts so that we can find ways to spread His Word, be it with Christmas programs, a kind deed, a happy word like, “Merry Christmas” accompanied by a smile, or even gifting a friend with a great Christian fiction novel.

Let us all endeavor to gift those around us with the knowledge of Our Lord Jesus. It is the best Christmas present they could ever receive.

We want to welcome two new permanent columnists this month…Dee Stewart at Multicultural Fiction, and Donald James Parker as our resident expert for POD and Self-Publishing. And at the same time say a fond farewell to Michelle Levigne over at Fiction Rants, Mary DeMuth at Write Real, and Kelly Mortimer at Gotta Get It!?

This will also be the last month for our Cover interviewer Valerie Faulkner. Starting in January Cover interviews will be brought to you by the prolific review maven Kim Ford. And we have new columns to introduce…LOL…but I need leave something to tell you next month!

Merry Christmas to all…and remember…Jesus Is The Reason For The Season!

Bonnie S. Calhoun
