New Group CMA

Kelly Mortimer has started a wonderful group of committed serious writers. I've known her for the last three years and find her a sincere person who loves to reach out and help other writers. It is called CMA, Christian Media Association, check them out!

Got a question about writing? Kelly is the one to ask, she answers with the love of the Lord. She was named The Literary Agent of the Year for 2008 by ACFW. Her Agency is the Kelly Mortimer Literary Agency. She also owns a publishing company. She is committed to helping new writers.

Her authors are among the best and she represents many diverse ones.

I highly recommend Kelly as a person of integrity and knowledge.

Her groups are fun to be with and she is all around funny along with encouraging people to get up, dust off, and keep going.

Did I say don't quit? Yeah, we all encounter the enemy, but hey friends, we have won the battle and so let's take a deep breath and move forward into what the Lord has prepared for the coming year. Good, I know y'all heard me. (I learned that from deep south friends in Mississippi!) I'm saving some of this stuff for future writing.

We've had a ton of company since Oct. but it's slowing down, now almost a year later, Jim is out of work, house back on the market, etc. etc. Life in general. We aren't any worse or better off than our neighbors at this time in history. So....we keep praying and praising.

One last thing sweet friends, keep breathing and praising the Lord. I just took another friend up to Seven Falls, a precious French friend, Stephanie, that came from France to visit. She is our daughter's best friend and we totally love that girl. I was reminded of the beauty around me and like the falls, that still keeps falling, we will keep breathing until Jesus comes for us. Although the falls are beginning to freeze up, there is still plenty of wonderful fresh mountain air by the pond.

For now, I send Jesus hugs your way and love each of you that come here.

Paulette, I have enjoyed hearing your words of hope and your words of comfort to others from such a warm heart. I am so sad at the disheartened feelings from Kelly, but I agree with you, there are many wolves in sheep's clothing. The almighty buck drives this world - including Christian publishers. I hope Kelly can get beyond the feeling of betrayal and be the conduit that helps others to shine their Christian light.

You are sweet, Paulette. Always encouraging writers and pointing us the right direction.

Praying for favor for your family as you wait on the Lord to direct your steps.

Love you.
