 We all love writers conferences, but too often the timing of them either conflict with our schedules, are too far away, or are priced way out of our budgets. Boot Camp for Christian Writers has been running seminars and writers conferences out of Beeson Divinity School based inside Birmingham, Alabama’s Samford University for years, and recently begun to publish their curriculum for outsiders as well!

To date, five volumes have been published in paperback with two more coming out in November. The workbooks are excellently written and presented in a learning-friendly way, with plenty of space for notes above and beyond the exercises and study questions.

Who wrote these books? Two extremely prolific and successful authors have teamed up to help anyone who will come succeed in publishing. 

Denise George is the author of more than 27 traditionally-published books, and more than 1500 magazine articles. 

Carolyn Tomlin is the author of more than 4000 magazine articles and numerous books. Both ladies share their knowledge and expertise in each workbook to give us the writers conference experience right in our homes.

I think it would be fun to get some writer-friends together and purchase these books and run your own seminar. This is great when you can’t get to Alabama or Tennessee for the conference!
Find the workbooks on Amazon at this link.

Get back to writing!

What if your novel attracts the wrong kind of attention?

Author Beth Rider’s vampire novel has hit number one, but her fictitious plot puts her in the crosshairs of an ancient race of vampiric beings known as the Rakum. Spreading evil among mankind for thousands of years, the leadership of this bloodthirsty race now has a singular focus: catch Beth Rider—her very life in mortal jeopardy as she goes on the run, a rabbit desperate to escape the worst of predators.

Facing the most terrifying trial of her life against creatures known only in fables, one simple woman will unintentionally threaten the very existence of a powerful and accursed people. In the climactic mêlée, it is a race to the death—or if Beth has her way, a race to the life—of every Rakum who makes the choice.

THIS NOVEL INCLUDES A BONUS: In the back, “Loose Rabbits of the Rabbit Trilogy.” 20 short stories featuring the characters of this amazing series. Also sold separately.

One of the MANY five star reviews!

Finally, an author has hit upon a really new idea which intrigues the “vampire” enthusiast and challenges the adequacy of the faith of the religious crowd. Within the 340 pages of Ellen Maze’s book: Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider we are given a believable beginning for the vampire race and exposed to the contortions of that evil society without soiling one’s sensibilities in the standards of the trade; lust, porn, and gore. Mrs. Maze’s thesis of faith-based battling of evil challenged my views of my own theological adequacy. I tackled this novel with the intent to find fault with it’s theology but came away seeing “the plank” in my own eye.
The depth of the characters, the solid theology, a this-could-really-happen storyline, and the self-examination brought about by this reading left me wanting to meet these people, help their efforts, and encounter their God. I truly admonish all to join the chase and seek the Rabbit.
Yes, Rabbit wlll shake your world. There is only one bit of advice to be given: READ THIS ONE!  - Robert L. Boatner
