    Linda Wood Rondeau's presentation is based on Corinthians and applied to our fellowship of authors. As Moses needed support to keep his rod above his head, we, as Christian authors, need the support of others. While we recognize this, many of us don’t know how best we can be of service to other authors. It’s not a “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.” Rather it’s “I’ll scratch your back, and you will scratch someone else’s.”
    We all know that our character must have a wound and a dark moment, but have you ever considered intentionally working in a cyclical stronghold? We all have strongholds that originate from negative events in our lives and the lies that result from them. In this webinar, we will go over the cycle of a stronghold as presented in Dance Again Ministries Fishers of Men Discipleship Training. We’ll explore how authors can work this cycle into their stories to deepen the character arcs and heighten the moment of epiphany.
    Authors can’t simply rely on good writing anymore. We’re told to build an audience of followers through social media. But how?

    Who doesn’t love getting lost in a good story? For many, books are a means of escape from the trials of life or of entertainment amidst its drudgery. But as a Christian author, your pen wields significant power. This workshop will enable you to use your writing to help your readers find the true escape they may not even know they need, and the encouragement that will carry them through the good and bad moments of life. Why let your readers merely get lost in a story, when they could truly be found through it?
    Readers love a series. Agents love series. Both indie authors and publishers know that a well-connected series can gain loyal fans and increase sales. Series also create opportunities for those “extras” that can serve as lead magnets, giveaways, fan bonuses, and promotional tools. Bestselling author Allie Pleiter, who has written over 50 books including seven series for both traditional and independent publishing, shares the secrets of crafting a great series. Whether you’re proposing it to a publisher or utilizing a series to power up your indie career, you’ll come away with tactics to help you succeed well beyond one book.
