Hey Mike and Bea,

Just wondering how the Testimony book is coming along and what the title is going to be?

Blessings to you both, Lynn

It has gone to layout. The title I believe is Triumph over Trials. I know all of the stories have been edited and it's going to be a great book!

Good morning and thanks for answering Shann. We are traveling and I missed this one.

Yes the book is with the publisher and the title is Trials and Triumphs.

It is going to an incredible and powerful testimony to anyone who reads it! :clap

The Testimony book will be released soon. We will send you an email when it is out along with an e-version and instructions on how you can obtain print copies.

The page for the Testimony book is up http://faithwriters.com/testimonies.php and we have added a banner on the top of the site. Once it is out we will be advertising it heavily on the site.

We are asking all authors to:

1. Prepare your profile page that is linked to the above Testimony book page. It should contain a nice description and photo of yourself and any of the website or blog links you want to connect readers too. To track things we decided we could not use everyone's individual links in the book. Readers are pointed to the Testimony page and on there your name is easy to locate. Your profile will then take them where you want them to go so make sure you have the links listed.

2. Begin to prepare your blog and Facebook posts for the book. Make sure to add a link to this page http://faithwriters.com/testimonies.php . If every author can post their article at least
three times we would have 120 posts pointing to the book. The more the better.

3. Read the book when it comes out and do a review on the books Amazon page.

4. Pray that God uses the book for His glory, that many come to a saving knowledge of Christ.

Big News for 2014! FaithWriters in conjunction with a large Christian publisher will be awarding three comprehensive publishing contracts to upgraded members. These
will be on an individual basis and possibly another anthology.

Thanks for your membership and support.

In His Grip, Mike

Hi Lynn and All Testimony Authors,

I apologize for the delay as it should have been out by now.

We found a last minute error in pre-publication between the wording of the text in the manuscript itself and the text on the back cover that was not acceptable. This was right before Christmas and we sent it back to have it corrected. We did not receive it back until last week. One additional small editing error we had pointed out was corrected but not the main issue we requested with the back cover and interior text error. We had to send it back and are checking daily.

We appreciate everyone's patience. I believe this book will be a powerful testimony for Christ and with a project like this, delays and opposition are often experienced. However, Trials and Triumphs will be out exactly when God wants it out.

Blessings, Mike

I took a whole lot of heat for my book Gravity not being edited well enough when it was first launched. I had a highly respected high school teacher edit it and review it several times. We reviewed it too. In the teachers defense I was in a hurry to publish and did not have it reviewed 20 times as she suggested.

After the flack and the negative comments that still haunt me in early Amazon reviews I had the e-version re-edited. I used a highly recommended book editor and updated it on Amazon right after getting it back. I made a note on the books Amazon page that it was re-edited. Since then I have had no complaints. However when I recently looked closer at Gravity there still are mistakes. Because of my experience I tend to notice them in many books, even best sellers.

Just a few days ago I received an email from a vey nice lady seeking to be added to our recommended editors list page. She sounds very qualified but if you read this part of her email to me what do you see?

I'm writing to inquire about joining your network of editors. I'm a freelance editor with experience working as a Managing Editor for a Christian Press. I'm also a certified editor through California State University in Sand Diego.

Things like this make me feel better in a weird sort of way. :lol:


Blessings, Mike

Well Mike, there is a lot of sand in San Diego! Been there, seen it! This is so funny, sounds like one of my mistakes! :lol:
