SORT BY Relevancy
Recently, a new movement has risen. It's a call for more diverse books. It became known during the Book Expo where, from what I'm told, there was a startling lack of diverse books available.
Part of me thinks it’s about time.
During my journey to publish as a Christian author, I found myself floored by how many traditional publishing houses neglected to buy my book -- not because it wasn't a good product but because it has an interracial couple. One would think in the 21st century, this kind of attitude is archaic. Shouldn't we have arrived by now?
I guess not.

WHAT ARE YOUR READING NOW? Bonding Thru Books Festival, a totally online literary event, was created to start a national conversation about what we want our literary legacy to be. Each night, 8-10pm EST we will discuss how we can use the leaders, icons and storytellers of today, to create body of works that will assist emerging writers and authors in being more responsible with their work and positions.
Everyone has a story! But, does that story have a purpose? What will the people in your life say about you after you are gone? What does your story hold for future generations? Let's create a life, a story, a journey that others will want to emulate! You are important to this community and we want to hear from you too.
PURPOSE OF BONDING THRU BOOKS - Each year thousands of people - educators, concerned parents, community leaders, authors, poets and publishers - devote their time and resources to presenting the reader with great books! However, too many outstanding books do not get the attention and reader support that they deserve. We want to help with this state of affairs, so we encourage readers to purchase books to give as gifts 365 days a year.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love sci-fi monster movies. The Cave, Alien Franchise, Predator series and others from across the board comes to mind. I tend to enjoy them because I grew up watching them. In a recent discussion with some fellow speculative fiction authors, we went back and forth on issues about what's appropriate for Christian to watch. I maintained there was nothing wrong with me watching these kinds of movies and allowed for others to disagree with me.
The conversation then spilled over into reading. I read all kinds of books secular and non-secular. I'm a reader. However, I've become more increasingly selective as to what I read because I want to enjoy a good book. As I'm exposed to Christian authors from all walks, this thought led me to the current redefinition of what is appropriate for 'saintly fiction'. After all, I have met Christian writers who write all over the spectrum. So the question comes to mind, what is saintly fiction? Who determines it?
