Me & Contests: Hysterical Together

Posted by Susan McGeown on 28 October, 2010 at 7:55 Comments comments (7)



So, when I found out I was a finalist in the 2008 Golden Rose Contest in the category "Novel With Romantic Elements" for Rosamund's Bower I was so excited I couldn't stand myself.  When the winners were finally announced there were four names listed and three award categories: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize. I was the fourth name.  Alone in my office I fought back my disappointment and tried to remind myself how great it was that I even finaled...

Christian Fiction and Me

On Being A Woman After God's Own Heart

My son wanted a book about knights. I made Rosamund's Bower as "knightish"as I could, but the reality – that it is an historical fiction romance – kind of misses the direction my son was hoping for!  Historical fiction stories always have a truckload of harsh realities to work with: arranged marriages for power a...

I tried for years to get an agent or sign on with a publishing house.  YEARS.  In the end, with the Lord's clear guidance, I decided to go the self publishing route.

When it came time to form my publishing company, the name - Faith Inspired Books - came quite easily. I believe firmly that each and every one of my stories is a special b...
