Tonight on the Write Stuff — Christmas is Coming with Heather Hart

Do you ever feel like the holiday season flies by way to fast?

Heather does. 

For several years Heather woke up on Christmas Eve and didn’t even feel like she was mentally ready for Thanksgiving yet. The holiday season had come and gone, and left her feeling like she was grasping at straws. She was so busy trying to do stuff that she wasn’t able to enjoy the moments.

Have you ever been there?

Well, this Christmas Heather is ready to make a change. Christmas is coming and she wants her heart to be ready. Join her in this new devotional as she builds anticipation for the day we celebrate the birth of our Savior and refocus your heart on Jesus this Christmas.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Daisy’s Search for Freedom with Bertha Schwartz

It’s the 1850s and Daisy, a slave girl from Alabama, is thrilled when her Mama is brought to her plantation to be the new cook. Six Oaks Plantation has been Daisy’s home for years, and the future looks bright now that she and her Mama have been reunited. The happiness doesn’t last, though, when a dangerous encounter with a notorious slave hunter endangers Daisy’s life. She has no choice but to run. Leaving behind everything she has ever known, Daisy strikes out alone on the Underground Railroad.

Daisy’s search for freedom leads her deep into the woods. Along the way she is joined by Simon, a four-year-old boy and his pet kitten. Pursued by dogs, uncertainty, and a slave tracker determined to capture them by any means necessary, Daisy starts to wonder if she will ever be safe again. Does Jesus care about runaway slaves lost in the woods?

Biblical Justice vs. Social Justice, Part 2 — The Parker J Cole Show

Today, we continue our discussion of biblical justice vs social justice.

Social justice. Biblical justice. Aren’t they essentially the same thing? After all, don’t we all want what is right to be done to the least of these. Aren’t Christians the very first to pick up the banner of justice and help the downtrodden, the abused, the marginalized? Isn’t social justice the very core of biblical justice?

What if I were to tell you that by the end of this two part series, you’ll be able to answer these questions and more. Joining me in this discussion is Dr. Cal Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance. The Cornwall Alliance is a network of theologians, scientists, economists, and other scholars and leaders work together to promote, primarily through education, three things simultaneously: Biblical earth stewardship, or “godly dominion”, economic development for the world’s poor; and the proclamation and defense of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Write Stuff Partner Opportunity: Reach More Fantastical Fans with Lorehaven Web Ads

If you’ve been following the blog for some time, you KNOW I’m a big fan of authors who write speculative fiction. I pretty much bulldozed my way into Lorehaven’s corner and they, without much choice in the matter, have accepted my girl fandom of everything they do.

I wanted to give the authors who follow this blog and write speculative fiction the chance to know about this new opportunity Speculative Faith’s Lorehaven is providing.


Reach More Fantastical Fans with Lorehaven Web Ads

d24a3123-1eb0-4243-a665-9efef1f54a27Your book is willing to find more readers. Wanting to find more readers. Waiting to find more readers.

The problem is, well, you might feel like a small hobbit in the large publishing world. How can you get that story in front of more people?

And not just random folk like Morgan Freeman or your aunt’s cousin’s friend, but readers who want to read books like yours?

You’re on a mission to share your books with more readers. We’re on a mission to make that possible



Picture this:

A book lover scours the internet, looking for the next adventure that will whisk her to far off lands—the exact type of person you want to reach.

“Huh, a site that offers free book reviews. Oh, fantasy and sci-fi? I love those! I should check out this Lorehaven Magazine.”

She clicks. Lands on the Lorehaven homepage. And what does she find?

Your full banner ad.

Big, bold, beautiful. Clever copy and a stunning design beckoning her to embark ona new journey.

“Sounds good,” you say. “But what about reach? What’s the advantage of Lorehaven over, say, ads through Facebook or Google?”

Benefits—is the quest worth it?

As of October 15, the Lorehaven and Speculative Faith sites have combined to reach a lot of people this year. Over 40,500 to be exact. And the number of views? 97,000 and climbing.

That’s 4,000+ visitors a month. Let’s assume you wanted that many people to see your ad but had to do the work yourself. If you started today and let 10 people know about your book every day, without fail, it would take you till Thanksgiving next year to finish.

Unlike social media outlets, Lorehaven and Speculative Faith reach a targeted niche, so you can guarantee your money is effectively used. Instead of wasting precious funds faster than an irresponsible hobbit downing pints at the Green Dragon.

And those sites, where your ads will appear, have already nearly quadrupled their number of combined views and visitors since last year, thanks in large part to Lorehaven magazine.

Oh, and did I mention these ads are in addition to what we already offer in Lorehaven magazine? Which brings us to:

How it works—conquer the villain of obscurity

1. You can purchase and reserve space for a month, or you can buy quarterly bundles and take advantage of discounts. You can also bundle a web ad with a print ad and get a reduced rate.

2. You have two size options:

  • Half-banners (great for tighter budgets!)
  • Full banners (great to draw more eyes!)

3. You also have two placement options:

  • Individual article pages on as well as pages on Speculative Faith and other future affiliate blogs, where the ads will rotate with other ads.
  • The Lorehaven homepage, where your ad will show 24/7 during the month(s) you purchased and reserved.

4. We can include clickable links to your website or published book.

5. Our ads are served by our custom system, which means we work with you directly. That means the ads will not be hidden by current in-browser ad-blocking software. So they should always show on these websites, no matter the browser, device, or screen size.

(Note that this also means ad performance can’t be tracked, such as with Google or other third-party ad services.)

6. You can design the ad yourself (or have it designed) and switch out your ad any time.

We have a fancy, updated media kit, which includes all the pricing info, sizing, and discount options for web ads. Grab the free media kit below.

And may the ads be ever in your favor.
