Another 'favorite' of mine is author Randy Ingermanson. He has written many of my favorite books, including the Oxygen Series, Double Vision, and my absolute favorite, City of God.
Randy is also known as the Snowflake Guy. You can visit his site, Advanced Fiction writing for some of the best writing tips available and sign-up for his free E-zine on writing and the ever-changing publishing world.
I am a member of Christian Writers' of the West, CWOW. CWOW meets on the last Saturday. The next meeting will be on April 30th from 1:00 to 3:00 at the Tempe Library.

Did anyone type on one of these?
I am a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. ACFW has many resources for published and unpublished authors. They have writing courses, prayer partners, Novel Track, local charter groups, and critique groups. Their annual Writers' Conference draws many of the top Christian publishers in the country.
Each year ACFW has the Carol Awards for published authors. For unpublished writers, they have the First Impressions Contest. Manuscripts for this contest do not have to be complete. This is a wonderful way for new writers to have their work evaluated as they continue writing. ACFW also has the Genesis Contest for unpublished authors. The completed manuscripts are reviewed by industry professionals.
