“In this difficult time for publishing, I always encourage authors to connect. Join a local or national writer's organization that can connect you to editors, agents and other writers who share the same interests as you do. For Christian writers, I always encourage them to check out American Christian Fiction Writers, an organization I helped to create, that is devoted to coming alongside Christian authors to encourage and educate. You can check them out online at They offer so many benefits for new and established authors. Through organizations like ACFW, writers can join local groups, critique groups, take online workshops and attend yearly conferences. No matter where you connect, it's important to network with other authors and people in the writing industry in order to know what is happening and to get the encouragement and help that we authors sometimes need.”
