Welcome to Writing for Christ Jim Rubart, it is great to have you here! Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know?
Contrary to popular belief, I’m an introvert. I love people, but have to have huge amounts of alone time to recharge.
Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?
To read (and watch): Time Travel. I loved the idea of the past affecting the future and visa versa. Without question, I’ll someday write a novel involving time travel.
Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing?
It’s not about me. If a writer is a follower of Jesus they’ve died to self and the main thing is stepping into what Jesus has called them to do, then it doesn’t matter if they’re published or not. I know this is easy for me to say because I’m traditionally published, but trust me, getting published isn’t the panacea some pre-pubbed writers think it is. When Peter checks us in, it won’t be about how many books we wrote, or if we were published or not, it will be about if we followed the path He designed us to walk on.
5 things you love?
- Speed- water skiing, cars, dirt bikes, etc.
- Back packing
- Hanging out with my wife and sons
- Writing (big surprise, right?)
Tell us briefly about your latest novel.
What if you could send your spirit into other people’s souls to fight for their freedom? That’s the premise of Soul’s Gate.
Publisher’s Weekly: “Readers with high blood pressure or heart conditions be warned: this is a seriously heart-thumping and satisfying read that goes to the edge, jumps off, and “builds wings on the way down.”
RT Book Reviews made Soul’s Gate a Top Pick and says: “Rubart’s novel is enthralling and superlative. Truly a story about freedom from things that we hold onto, this tale will captivate readers and encourage a more active, dynamic spiritual life. The original plot and well-drawn characters elevate this book to “must read” status.”
What novel have you recently read that has stood out to you that both teens and adults will find enjoyment in?
The Reunion by Dan Walsh. I read it on a plane recently and, wow! It got dusty in there! Great heart to that book.
