Why do you blog? What do you hope to accomplish with blogging? The first blog is a platform for my books and thoughts on the Bible, the second one is the blog of our non-profit organization. I started blogging way back in 2006 and saw it as a great new way to exercise my writing skills, interact with other writers, build a platform, get critique and learn from other bloggers. I think that hasn’t changed.
What’s the latest goings-on that you would want others to know about? The 5th book in my series about the Ten Commandments, My Neighbor’s House, will be officially released January 8th, 2013. Pre-sales will start soon, see the following link: http://www.tatepublishing.com/
Any words of encouragement or wisdom to impart? Discouragement is the enemy’s favorite weapon against us. It will creep up on us slowly and silently until we find ourselves one day burned out, lacking inspiration and without vision. If it has never happened to you, please write a book about it Anyway, wherever you find yourself on your writing journey, please, always take time to encourage someone else! It is the key to endurance.
Where can readers connect with you online? My blogs of course and http://twitter.com/
