by Dave WalkerAt the last minute he dived to one side.The car swerved, attempting to keep Peter in its path and crush him under its wheels.
James' eyes were glued to the page.With a screech and flurry of dust, it went out of control. It teetered on the edge of the cliff before plunging down the mountain, bursting into .......
"James! Come on. Everyone's waiting for you."
"Coming Mom."...flames on its way. Peter breathed a sigh of relief. He was shaking from head to toe. Thank You, Lord. That was ...
"Come on, James. Aren't you finished yet?"
"Won't be long."
"Have you got a book in there?"...a near thing, but You came through just in time, as You always do. As Peter scrambled back onto the road, he took stock of the situation. The people in the car almost certainly died in the flames. That just left those at the hideout in the city. He had to get.....
"James! My iPad is missing. Have you been at Revelation Books
"Faithwriters bookstore have good, wholesome Christian e-books
to download, Mom. And some that you won't find anywhere else. You said so yourself." Now where was I? Oh, yesHe had to get back as soon as possible before they shipped the children to another place. Lord, please send a guardian angel to give me a lift.
He had no sooner...
"But not to be read in the loo. Will you please come out. Jenny is wriggling around and trying to cross her legs at the same time. She's bursting."
"Just think, Mom, downloading from this site is helping spread the gospel world-wide. Aren't you glad I'm using it? And the site benefits upcoming Christian writers
. You are so clever to deal through Faithwriters." Back to my place.......finished his prayer when a truck appeared on the horizon. He waved it down and it ground to a halt beside him. "Need a lift, fella?" A burly truck driver leaned out of the cab....
"Stop trying to butter me up, James. You know that I think Faithwriters is the best place to buy Christian books
. And to sell them, too. Why do you think I sell my Christian e-book
there? With over 400,000 hits a month, and advertised site-wide in at least four sites, what better place for a Christian author
or reader? But GET OUT OF THERE!".... Wow, You sure sent a giant-sized angel, Lord. He looked up at the driver. "Yes, please. I'm in a hurry. There is a group of traffickers who are about to ship some children out of the .....
"James, please! I'm bursting! If you don't come out I'm going to wet my pants."
"O.K., Jenny, I'm coming."
"At last! What were you reading that you couldn't even put down to get off the loo? Now, please give me back my iPad"
"That's why I didn't want to come out, Mom. I knew you'd want your iPad, and then I couldn't finish my story."
"Well, you're right.. I do enjoy browsing Faithwriters Bookshop to see what books are there."
"How'd you find this great author?"
"He wrote an article on their website that I really liked, so I looked up his profile and found his list of books."
"Is that how you promote your book?"
"Yes. My profile as a Christian writer
is on Faithwriter's site for all to see, and lists any books that I've written. Plus they have something called Free Reads for Reviews, where someone can include my book amongst free e-books
they download if they review it on Amazon and Faithwriters. What's more, if anyone wants a hard copy, the link is there to Amazon and ChristianBooks.com."
"Cool! No wonder you keep telling us how good Faithwriters is. That's why I got your code and downloaded this amazing book. Can I finish it now?"
"James! Where are you going with my iPad? James! Come back here."
"Please, Mom. Peter has to catch the traffickers before they ship off the children. I can't leave him now."
"Oh, O.K. You can finish the story in your room. But remember, that iPad is mine. I want to browse through Faithwriters for my next e-book. And I'm changing my password!'

2nd Place and $50Downloadable Books for Dinosaurs
by P.J. Baker
“Mom, can I buy a book for Callum’s birthday? One about Jesus, or dinosaurs?” said my son, Justin.
“Sure honey, we’ll look for one about Jesus first,” I say. We jump into the car and I drive to where our local Christian bookstore is. Or was. There’s a huge red sign in the whitewashed window saying “Closing Down Sale: Over.”
Justin starts to laugh: “have you heard of the internet? You can buy ANYTHING on it. (Whispers) Dinosaur!”
Only 6 years old, and he already thinks he’s smarter than Mom. I hide my smile as we turn around and head home.
An hour later, thanks to Justin, the laptop and Google, we have discovered ebooks. faithwriters.com, a website that sells Christian books.“Christian ebooks?”
I read from the screen. “Umm…”
“Cool! We can download it onto his iPad.”
“IPad? OK. Buying from here supports the development of Christian writers around the world AND we can buy from Amazon at best value prices… Justin?... Justin?” Justin has disappeared but I read on, relentless.
“I can also sell my Christian ebook
through the faithwriters ebook store… over 600,000 page reads a month, WOW…great value with a platinum membership… I must tell Susan…and…free ebooks!
I click on Free Reads for Reviews, and I’m downloading the latest Christian Fiction
to review when Justin returns.
“Hey, this is Callum’s iPad,” he says. “It’s like a laptop without keys.” He opens the case but struggles to unlock it.
After a few minutes, I take it and unlock it in a second. I smirk. “Guess I’m not the dinosaur anymore!”
He laughs. We find Callum a book about Jesus, and within a minute it’s paid for and downloaded onto his iPad.
“Can’t wait to show Callum the website!” says Justin, running off with the iPad.
“Hey, tell him it’s changing its name to RevelationBooks
” I shout after him. But Justin is gone, and I’m on my own. Perfect.
I re-fill my coffee, relax into my armchair and flick to page one. If only everything in life was this easy!

3rd PlaceChristian books
on Potty Training?!... Well, Maybe Not. by Nicole C. Calhoun
“My little “big boy” went potty and washed his hands. This time he spent an extra amount of time to clean his hands (he likes the bubbles)... Yep he is growing up.
Well… It turns out…he put all of the towels in the toilet. The adventure never ends…”
These are not the words within a Christian book
but something I shared during a week long blog series called Potty Training Adventures. Yep, I wrote a blog on a Christian blog site about potty training. Oh, you had better believe I had a great deal of inspiration for this one. Our two year old son has made this milestone a very interesting one. I thought that sharing it would at least give others hope while tackling this milestone themselves. Hey if nothing else, maybe they would experience a good laugh.
Sure the blog is geared toward Christian women. In fact, the blog is intended to share the wonderful nuggets of wisdom for everyday life; those things the Holy Spirit reveals while we are in study. However this time I wanted to blog about this quirky experience we have endured in potty training. Hey this is everyday life right? Well at least it is for the mothers of young children.
Leave it to me to use a Christian blog to write about something so offbeat, but I would venture to say that I am not alone. I wonder how many other people are as peculiar; come on, who else would choose to write Christian books
about everyday life?
Guess what I found out? Christian writers do write about all kinds of subjects. I am normal and do not stand alone!
I found out about Revelation Books
, an online bookstore of FaithWriters.com. This online bookstore offers tons of Christian books that cover an extensive array of subjects related to the practical Christian. There is of course both Christian fiction
and Christian non-fiction
. There are books of poetry, devotionals, special interests and humor. Hmm…I wonder if my potty training adventure blogs would be considered humorous. I guess it depends on who you ask.
In any case, this site is also great because they are helping to promote Christian authors who are just starting out; people like me.
The parent site, FaithWriters is a site that encourages and helps the Christian author by providing opportunities for inspiring authors to post articles. Do you know what this means? It means that someone looking to sell their books on the Revelation Books
would also benefit from the article traffic.
Revelation Books has books that can be purchased on Amazon and ChristianBooks.com, as well as titles that are exclusive to their bookstore. They also offer free ebooks. This is like a one stop shop when it comes to finding Christian books
The best benefit of purchasing or selling your Christian books on Revelation Books is that FaithWriters.com serves as an avenue to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide. I would say this is wonderful because as Christians, this is our entire goal.
I still didn’t find a Christian book on potty training but I would still agree that Revelation Books is a great place to look for your next Christian book
