Since I wrote it for the greater glory of God and not for profit, you can view it for free. This is a story about God's mercy. I was inspired to write it after reading St. Faustina's diary. The book raises the question "What would you be willing to sacrifice to save the soul of your enemy?"

Thanks so much for the link! I read the book and have sent your link to others. One told me he stayed up all night reading it and that it made him cry. It's hard for me to put my reaction into words. I like the endings to the chapters - they made me want to turn the page (so to speak) and read more. The characters seem real to me and I can identify with all of the three major characters. I love the message of mercy and how people can change and develop through time to learn about God's love - or start to forget about it. Like my friend, I cried - especially at the ending (I won't say if it was because of sadness or joy ).
Great novel, Kay Cee! Can I use both thumbs to give it two thumbs up?
Just wanted to let you guys know that since I last popped up, I have learned a LOT about the digital publishing world. I have actually got my book, How to Write an eBook in 40 Days (or less) up for free now through April 27th, 2013 in the amazon kindle store. Here's the link http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00APO9P0C
Please download this, tweet this, share this with friends on Facebook. I don't get paid for these downloads but it does actually help promote my book even after the free days are finished. Every person who downloads that book, Amazon will link my book with all of the other books they've ever purchased so when one of those books comes up it recommends my book in the "This customer also bought..." section,, getting my name and my title in front of more places and spaces.
Right now I am publishing my works as e-books. Amazon has a self-publishing program and so does Barnes & Noble. These programs do not charge but the downside is that your books will not be in print.
I currently am also looking for a cheap book publisher who will print my works as real printed books. It is quite a struggle.
Amazon does have a paperback print option available through CreateSpace. (See: http://www.createspace.com). It is relatively easy to upload a book, they have a lot of information on doing it, plus a great community where assistance is available.
Hello Marc, I think you have had a wonderful idea here, and hope it can be helpful to many. Perhaps some future topics might be:
1-Finding motivation to keep writing.
2-What are the best writing schedules?
3-Who would you trust to review your manuscripts?
4-Are there are good agents anymore? How to find them?
I've just finished re-reading Ben Franklyn's autobiography (my best guess is I read it a half-century ago--which is the type of thought that can really subdue a person)--and I was pleasantly surprised to rediscover his comments about the value of his group of writers discussing their works, much like this group and also CSLewis' group of Inklings (i encourage members here to check on our Catholic.com Inklings group). Best regards.
I have just completed and published my first Catholic comedy novella titled "The Misadventures of Cardinal Fratelli". It will be one of three books about the good cardinal who always ends up in comical situations.
Here is the plot to the first book of the series
Set in the 19th century, in picturesque Italy, this comic writing follows the daily life and blunders of one Cardinal Angelo Fratelli. He is devout, young, handsome and experiences many trials partly because of his excitability and because of his snobby Aunt Francine.
Suddenly, Michele, a dear, childhood friend, comes around and doesnít get the hint he is unavailable. Fratelli must hatch a plan to get her married off so she leaves him alone- also while proving himself to parishioners and various, other clergy.
If you would like to see a sample of this work, check out my blog:
While I was teaching middle school in a public school the counselor and I led a group for several years for 13 and 14 year old girls. We called it Brave New Girls. I took great notes and have about 10 chapters ready to go in a workbook designed for young ladies to learn about their faith and to be strong women in our society. Does anyone think ths merits being published? Just wondering....
The above link is the link to my book, Theos A Personal Journey. It's pretty much autobiographical in nature and yet it addresses topics which have amazed me in my growing up years. Everythng from the nature of the Eucharist to the real marriage between faith and science is covered. Spiritual warfare as well as the studies of the end times is also covered. Check it out and heck...if you have a kindle, buy it.
