Christian Authors to Root For

Good afternoon, Arrowheads! A couple weeks ago, I started reading the first installment of Sarah Addison-Fox’s Allegiance series, Disowned. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and downloaded the sequel to my Kindle before finishing the first one! Sarah has become an author friend of mine through Twitter and Goodreads, and was the first person to offer to write a review for my debut novel on Goodreads.

Sarah’s kindness and mentoring tips have inspired me to want to help and promote fellow self-published Christian authors as well. On March 1st, I announced on Goodreads that I’m open to reading Kindle copies of books by Christian authors, and received a huge response! Today, I’d like to share with you the authors I was recommended to read, as well as their titles and genres!

As an author and blogger, my goal is to teach writers that there is a way to write realistic, thought-provoking, redemptive Christian fiction that honors God while not sugarcoating the realities of the world.
