I've been writing for about six years. As a child I had quite an imagination. I guess it stuck with me into adulthood, but I kept it mostly to myself. One day I was confessing my "sin" to a sister-in-law, and being an avid reader, she told me I had to write the story down. So I did, and that's how my novel, Nothing But The Blood, came to be!
The only book I've ever written is Christian fiction.
No, but I'd like to be! I feel the story God gave me needs to be shared. It's beautiful. :-) I placed my novel on Harper Collin's website, Authonomy, to swap reviews with peers from around the world. To my surprise, my book was rated number one for two weeks and received a coveted review by one of Harper Collin's editors, who then passed it off to Zondervan. I'm waiting to hear what suggestions they can give me to make the manuscript stronger. In the meantime, I'm preparing query letters and mulling over ideas for the sequel.
Yes, I've attended Calvin's Festival of Faith and Writing twice, and "wish" I could attend the Christian Writer's Conference at Maranatha. :-) I just learned of the Breathe conference today and that's how I found this group!
I would like to have my first novel published and the sequel written.
Hi. :-) My name is Dianna Lanser. I'm very happy to have found such a large gathering of writers. I'm eager to meet and learn from each one of you.
