If I seem to be dancing...there's a great reason. I've just been informed that the agent of my new friend, Wayne Batson, has agreed to represent my book, The Chronicles of Soone: The Rise of Lucin to Christian book publishers this July at the International Christian Retailers Show in Atlanta.

I can't thank the Lord enough or Wayne for his help. The book had been on the plate for publishing this November at Breakneck Books, but was not yet under an official contract. Breakneck Books is wishing me well on this and removing the book from the schedule.

This is a great opportunity for me and my work and I certainly hope the Lord has opened this door so that the book will be published and in bookstores where it can really get a chance to take off with readers. Online is nice, but to really have a fighting chance, brick and mortar is still the best way to reach readers.

I ask for any prayers on the matter that I can get...the book still has to sell, so I'm not out of the woods just yet, but at least I'm riding with a good guide in a Hummer!

Hello! Congrats and God bless on your new accomplishments!!!I myself am currently writing a christian fiction novel. I have not yet finished it, but am pretty clueless on how to start finding agents, publisher, etc. I'm wanting to find a christian agent. Any suggestions?

On finding a Christian literary agent, you should do a web search on it. Also, and this is what really helped me, network with other Christian authors. I've had two referrals by Christian authors and it came by talking to them through email. Also, being in forums with other christian writers or on blog tours with other christian writers can help.
