Information and announcements about new Mixed Blessings Anthologies which are a compilation of the Editors' Choice winning Writing Challenge entries.
Moderator: Deb Porter
Sorry everyone. No, they aren't out yet. They'll be going out in the next month or so. (Want to get the first book out first).
No hurry, just realized I hadn't gotten one and with the way things get sent to spam, wanted to make sure
It's been a while since I checked in over here, so I'm chagrined to say...I can't remember my old log-in information to update my contact details...and since the newhorizonwriting or wordweaver email I was probably using is no more, you'll never catch me there for a release form.
Instead, you can find me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
It's not catchy, but I've had it forever and check it fairly often. Thanks!
Oh my--I haven't been here in SO long and this topic caught my eye because I thought I began at Faithwriters in 2007. Sure enough--I did! BUT, my first first EC was July 5, 2007. I will have to wait a bit longer before I see the ECs in a book, but it's getting CLOSE!
Dee, Deb was extremely brave taking these books on with what may turn out to be a limited demand (not much more than the EC winners). If she goes ahead with these books I do hope they are a big success for her and if not, I hope we can all be gracious.
Jesus’ love is constant and never wavers.
Just saw these last three posts here. I don't read a lot of the forum posts, but this caught my eye, as its the first I've seen along this line.
Does this mean there might not be any books at all?
A child of the King!
Just the opposite. However, Deb has said that some of the challenge books will probably be e-books, some print, if I remember correctly.
Sorry guys. So busy I don't get onto the forums enough.
No, the books are definitely happening. It's just been very hard juggling my workload to fit everything in. I'm making some changes, though, and the books are definitely all going forward (just not in chronological order).
My goal is to have Book 1 released in November this year. If you think of it, keep me in your prayers. Got a lot going on at the moment. (Hence the need for changes.)
A long time ago, May 17, 2008, I mailed a release form for an EC entry chosen for one of the FW books. In August 2010 you replied to an inquiry that the quarterly book for 2008 & 2009 quarters was still not completed, but that task was on your priority list. I've never received word that it is finished.
The topic for this FW chosen piece was: Siblings (entry title: Playmates and Friends)
Also, another piece was chosen for a FW quarterly publication to which I mailed in the agreement form on May 27, 2011. Did this book get published yet?
The topic for this FW chosen piece was: Dropout (entry title: So They Can Dance)
I know you are extremely busy and I'm just curious if they did, how would I know what the title of each quarterly book was. Maybe I'm not looking in the proper place for past and current books. Any suggestions?
May God bless you abundantly for all the time, talent and effort that goes into putting these books together and making them available. And thank you for everything you do to keep this site running so smoothly.
In His love,
Thanking God for each day and pray that I will make a difference for Him.
I apologize if I am ignorant, here. I probably am. I do a good job of it, elsewhere!
I just got back to the Faithwriter's site and found out I was inactivated. No harm, no foul. Understood! However, I am wondering about the publishing of the Faithwriters' Anthologies. Last I heard, the first one some of my stories had appeared in was to be ready for Christmas 2012. I had a lot of people wanting to buy it as Christmas gifts. Now, as it nears the Christmas season of 2013, I am reminded of that.
I see, here, that there really hasn't been any commenting on the book schedule past 2012 and I don't understand why. Obviously, there must be something going on that I am not aware of. Could someone please fill me in?
Put simply (I'll let Deb explain in more detail when she can), Deb is quite simply a very busy lady. She is still moving forward with the books, so we just have to be patient
Goodness me! It's been sooooooooo long since I visited the forum. I just discovered I'm on the list (at least someone of the same name!) How nice. I may have missed this info but is it out yet?
Sorry, sorry, sorry.
Yes, Lynda, you are on several upcoming lists for books. If you haven't received a release yet, you will fairly soon. One release to cover all to be published articles to date. Trying very, very hard to work smarter (not harder).
Quick update, Book 1 in the new Mixed Blessings series will be available at the end of March. If it isn't, (or at least in being printed at that time), I quit. LOL. (Throw hands in air and concede defeat.) But I'm believing for it to happen, and the rest to follow on fairly quickly after. Pray for me.
The website should be up (at least in some basic form) before then, with a blog and newsletter option, to keep you all in the loop. Also, for now, I do keep a bit of information happening via the Breath of Fresh Air Press Facebook page:
Thanks, Deb. Hang in there.
