A Special Announcement: I’m Published! (Enter to Win a Copy)

Fearless & Free

We can walk with freedom

From fear from others

Because God’s the only Judge

And not our sisters or our brothers

We can walk with joy

And be free from fear

Because God is always gracious

When we draw near.


A Special Annoucement: I'm Published! (Enter to Win a Copy) Wendy L. Macdonald

It takes courage to submit manuscripts of any length to editors, agents, or publishers. And even when they do like what you’ve written, it takes courage to go through the editing process. The same fearlessness is required whenever we do something brave and bold. I’m grateful for the gracious critique partners and editors I’ve been working with this last while.

As many of you may have already noticed, I love to write both fiction and memoir. I’m pleased to announce one of my short stories and a photograph have been published in an InScribe Christian Writer’s anthology: Christmas Stories & More.

If you’d like to enter to win a copy, please subscribe to my newsletter e-mail list by clicking here: Wendy’s Newsletter. If you have already subscribed, your name is automatically entered into the draw. I will contact and announce the winner on September 1st, 2017. I’m happy to mail the winner a copy to anywhere on the planet; the winner can give me their mailing address privately when I notify them.

Do not be afraid of any man,

for judgment belongs to God.

    1. Thank you, dear Diane. “Perseverance and passion” are prerequisites to getting anywhere in today’s publishing climate–that’s for sure. 🙂 Both of which you have in abundance. Blessings on your projects and on the sales of your excellent book. ❤


    1. Thank you, dear Morgan. I hear you about the “Anti-everything.” Even if a writer gets published by a faith-based publisher, Christian writers are sometimes subjected to one star ratings even though their book was clearly labeled inspirational. All we can do is turn the other page and keep writing in the way we’re called to write. ❤

    1. Thank you, sweet friend. I’m learning that good writing happens after lots and lots of rewriting. Nice to know I’m not alone in the need for editors and revisions. And how blessed we are that God is writing a story in each of our hearts and lives. I can’t wait for the happy-ending-return-of-the-King celebrations to begin. ❤

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
