A Second Wait & Anticipating Meeting w/ Mr. Davis

Dan Penwell (editor at AMG) requested my entire manuscript a couple weeks ago. I've been so busy that I never properly posted this bit of awesome information . . . but now you know! He first requested a book proposal in October and this month he requested the manuscript itself. I pray that means I have my foot in the door, because I sent out the manuscript and he should have it by now. Now (again) I must wait anywhere from one to four months.

I've arranged to meet with Bryan Davis www.dragonsinourmidst.com next month . . . and I'm eagerly anticipating that time. We've been corresponding for a while now, about six months, and he has been most encouraging . . . in particular with my manuscript.

You will enjoy your meeting with Mr. Davis - as you know he is a great guy, and is very encouraging - just a great person to be around.

That's awesome about the manuscript! I got to meet Dan Panwell a couple of months ago at the Florida Christian Writer's Conference - he's really nice. I hope all goes well with the manuscript - I'll be praying!

You'll have a lot of fun at that meeting. He's a big kid at heart, really. With a lot of insight and wisdom.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
