    The Need for Edgy Christian Fiction Part 2 -- Write Stuff -- 3/31/2014

    in Radio

    Last week we began our discussion on edgy Christian fiction and the need for it. We'll continue our talk with our guest and touch on other areas related to this developing genre.


    Recently I was quoted in an article that's making it way around various writing circles both Christian and non-Christian alike discussing the need for edgy Christian Fiction.


    In the article I state: The current Christian fiction out there seems dull, boring, and unrealistic. This doesn't apply to every single book, but the majority of Christian fiction is very white washed, clean, and shows exemplary characters of sinners who sin 'a little'. This is not to say that we don't need those books, it's good to have a benchmark to aspire to, with the ultimate goal of being like Christ. However the state of the church, particularly in the west, proves this to be opposite. Churches contain people who lie, cheat, and steal. Cynics, skeptics, and seekers sing praises to God, and don't believe a word they're singing.

    I believe edgy Christian fiction addresses this by using the imagination of the mind, with real-world accuracy. It shows saints who go through life far from the peace and wisdom of God, and find their way back to Him. Of course it would have been better if they'd never fallen at all, but we all know that isn't the case."

    What is edgy Christian fiction? How does it apply to us? Is there a point where we can go too far? Join me as I discuss these and other issues with my guest, author and pastor George McVey.

    Diversity and Christian Fiction -- Write Stuff -- 6-24-2014

    in Radio

    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. 

    Join me as I talk about the need for diversity and Christian fiction. Our guest co-host is author Unoma Osiegbu-Nwankwor. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or you can download the WLUV Radio mobile app. Any way you can, join us.
