Are You Headed for Burnout?

It was my calling and purpose to write these books, and burnout wouldn’t happen to someone who was doing God’s will. Right? Wrong.

Meet the Authors who are BRAVING THE ELEMENTS

I love authors. I love supporting authors. And I LOVE introducing readers to their new “favorite author.” That’s why I invite authors onto my blog. Today, I’m thrilled to have not one, or even two, but FIVE guest authors. All of these writers are published with Roane Publishing, the small house that gave me my …
