Giveaway! Chapel Springs Revival by Ane Mulligan!

Welcome to Writing for Christ Ane Mulligan, it is great to have you here! So you’re a writer? What made you decide to start creating characters and story world?

I’ve always created story worlds, since I was a little kid with a doll. I made up stories that would go on for weeks, with subplots and all. It wasn’t until I was in my 50s that I began to put them on paper.

What is the one title that has significantly impacted your life?

John Son of Thunder, by Ellen Gunderson Traylor. She brought Jesus and the disciples to life before my eyes and I felt like I walked with them.

If you could get a do-over when it came to learning this whole thing called writing, what would you go back and tell yourself?

Factor God into your equation for publishing. If I’d done that earlier, I’d have avoided a lot of angst. Then again, no angst is ever lost on a writer, now is it? lol

5 preference questions:

Homemade or take-out? Depends on who’s making the homemade. If it’s my chef son, then homemade. If it’s me – take-out!
Email or snailmail? Email – I’ve become 21st century. Pretty good for an old gal, huh?
Online shopping or Black Friday deals? I love online shopping!
Books or movies? Really? There’s no choice – books!
Note-taker or memorization? I used to be good at memorization, but now I take notes—copious notes. I even have a pen and pad beside my bed and use Siri on my iPhone to keep the things I need to remember.
Yes, I’m asking you to play favorites…which of your books is your favorite, published or unpublished? And if this is your debut novel, has your favorite been published yet?

My very favorite is the sequel to my debut novel. It includes a story of our eldest son’s adventure in which he forgot to include his mama. You don’t fool Mama without retribution. The retribution was it went in a novel! Insert evil laughter here.

  20. His ability to enthusiastically play — rather than just pretend — secured him a spot in the Under Armour photo promotions, air jordan australia which will highlight youth baseball cleats and are due to appear in sporting goods stores this spring. The Baltimore-based sports apparel and footwear company wants its ads to look like real life, air jordan shoes australia albeit a little cooler. It strives for an authentic feel partly by reaching out to homegrown talent and using area ball fields, warehouses, stadiums and street scenes.
