Taste and See


     I recently had the privilege of becoming associated with a group of Christian authors. We call it the John 3:16 Marketing Network. For those of you who like books with a Christian approach, I thought you would be interested to know how to tap into a group of great Christian authors. The founder of our group, a best-selling author in her own right, is Lorilyn Roberts. (I can personally recommend her book, Children of Dreams because I've read it. See my amazon review.) She has edited a FREE e-book called, Taste and See First Chapters- a Sampling by John 3:16 Network Authors. I think the name pretty much sums up what the book is. It is a great way to "browse" before you buy, kind of like what you do when you go into a brick-and-mortar bookstore. This collection has fiction, non-fiction, children's books, poetry, etc. A true sampling of our group. Again. it's FREE.

     For those of you who read my posts regularly, by now you know I am an aspiring author. Many of you supported me by purchasing my first book, Professor Tidwinkle and the Case of the Memory Pill.  Again thank you very much. Writing that book was a snap compared to trying to market it. The John 3:16 Marketing Network is about helping Christian writers get their books to the public. Some of our authors have books published by traditional publishers, while others, like me are self-published. 

     Each month or so, our group also participates in launching new books. It is an exciting few days and is a win-win for the reader and the author. There is ALWAYS "bang for the buck." Just like a business that has a grand opening has specials and give-a-ways, so you will find at launch time. Below, you will see a countdown widget. That's how many days and hours to go until the next book launch begins. Click here to go to the launch page.


     I hope you will download the free e-book and visit the sites above that have hyperlinks. I think you will find the time well-spent. 

     Until next time.......Steve ( www.tidwinkle.com )

PS-IF YOU DO CHECK OUT THIS INFORMATION, I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULD LEAVE A BRIEF COMMENT (OR A LONG ONE, IF YOU WANT TO) BELOW.

  2. Another J316er here! Good brief explanation of what the network is about. Enough information that a person would know if they want to know more or not--and the links to find the more. Good job.

    I read a few blogs while here. Hope you pursue the stories. God does some pretty amazing things.
