7 Ways to Avoid Delaying Publication

What if the woman you were seeing behind your wife's back gets pregnant, threatening your job and marriage? What if your boyfriend never told you he was married and you discover you're pregnant?Crisis pregnancy worker Marissa Moreau suspects her husband is cheating, but little does she know how close to home her husband's infidelity hits. College student Kaitlyn Farrows is floundering after a relationship with her professor leaves her pregnant.

How to write biblical fiction

Lit Up! with Angela Breidenbach welcomes Rachel S. Neal as we discuss how to create your own book covers, write biblical fiction, tips on critique groups, and discuss Rachel's new book, When Jonah Ran. Books mentioned:When Jonah RanHow to Mend a Broken StarA Healing HeartTips on making your own cover art:Use a design program like Photoshop or Affinity. Buy stock art, if you're not an artist: Dreamstime, Thinkstock, Lightstock, etc. where you can buy photos. Look for royalty-free, read the details before purchasing to know the license (how many copies, what type of use, etc.) Watch out for the allowance to (or not) manipulate a photo for a unique look such as changing the color of the dress or the model's hair.Tips on writing biblical fiction:About Rachel: Rachel S. Neal is an author living under the big sky of Montana. Her books are self-published and provide a means to fund charitable causes. Samaritan's Purse and Answers in Genesis are two of her favorites. Where you might happen across Rachel: Anywhere her feet can go. She likes to walk, taking her camera along for an adventure. The Oregon coast is a favorite, walking with her husband, sand between her toes and a pocketful of treasure. In her garden- planting, dividing, weeding, pruning, and just being. Anywhere that sells concrete, paint, fabric, glue, or second-hand goods. So many projects, so little time. On the couch beneath a cat, a cup of coffee, notebooks, Bible, or any I-can't-stop-reading-til-the-last-page tale. On her knees, seeking grace that never runs dry...Rachel's website: GraceByTheGallon.comAbout your Lit Up host, Angela: Angela's website: AngelaBreidenbach.comAngela's newsletter: A-Muse-ingsAs promised in this episode, Prociutto Egg Cups Recipe (learned from the Better Homes & Gardens special issue on Mediterranean Diet, April 2018) Spray the inside of a muffin tin, line with prociutto covering the bottom and sides with one layer, crack an egg into the well, slice grape or cherry tomatoes in half and place on top of egg white, drop a tsp. of pesto on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 min. Note: The eggs should be slightly unfinished as they finish setting up for a couple of minutes after taking them out of the oven. Each oven is different, so experiment with the doneness to your preference.
