"The Reminder" Spotlights my Writing

Besides mixing up a few details about my writing career (the article states that the novel I've just finished is the conclusion of my series, rather than the preclusion, and the article makes it sound as if AMG Publishers has contracted me, which they have not) the article was good.

I was pleased to see the quotes were, for the most part, accurate and didn't pass over my convictions but rather held them out, openly.

So, any of you visiting this blog as a result of the Reminder's article, please note: the first novel is a prelude to the series, you will not have to wait for the subsequent books to discover the novel's back story!

Overall I found the article well written, and surprisingly long!

That's great! I went to post a comment he day you posted, but then I thought I'd wait until after I'd read the article myself, and for some reason, we either didn't get ours this past week, or I totally missed it going through the house. :( Oh well. You know we're proud of you and so honored to know you. We'll continue to keep everything in prayer as it all works out.

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.
