Happy Thursday, friends! It’s our 2nd Thursday, in December, and that means it’s time to give you your next Christmas gift: A celebration of your successes and free books!


Kudos to these Christian Writer’s Den Writers!

1.  Gail Cartee (SC): I put up a new website, This Is My Fathers World, for family hands-on devotions in November! I am looking forward to seeing you at Writers Advance in Feb. I really want to learn more about blogs. (Vonda here: And I’m looking forward to seeing you at Christian Devotions’ Writers ADVANCE Boot Camp at The Cove in Asheville, NC!)

2.  Cindy Patterson (NC): Cindy has a new blog, Coffee Conversations.

Congratulations, Gail and Cindy! It looks like everybody’s been busy with the holidays and unable to take time to write, but you did it! I’m thrilled for both of you and look forward to seeing more great news in the future!

And if anyone else sent me anything and I missed it, please forgive me and send it again. And please continue to pray for my family as we care for and love on each other.


We had a few MoGoers this month…

Congratulations to these writers who reached their MoGo7000 goal of 7000 new words on a book project. They now have another entry into the end-of-the-year drawing for $100!

And time is running out for the yearly Buy One Get One Free sale in my store…

That’s right, order any book or workshop from my store from now until December 23 and you can get another item of equal value or less for free!

But you must follow these directions, or PayPal will charge you for both:
