So in my previous post, I explained that I decided to listen to my heart, listen to the Lord and get back to writing that fantasy, even though there is controversy surrounding whether or not Science Fiction and Fantasy will make it in the Christian Book Market. I’m thrilled to tell you that the Lord honord my decision and confirmed it to me this week. I received “the call” informing me that my fantasy is indeed a finalist in the Genesis contest.
Science Fiction/Fantasy/Speculative Fiction
(there was a 2-way tie, hence six rather than five finalists):
So celebrate with me. I’m in awe of God’s grace. . .because let me tell you that finalling is really not about whether your writing is superior. Sure, you should have descent abilities—but truly, it comes from getting judges who happen to favor your piece. . .and getting them at the same time! Now, that is the grace of God.
