    Hi everybody!

    In introduction, I am a lover of the Lord Jesus, married to my wonderful husband for (soon to be) 49 years, a mother of two, grandmother of six, and have self published one book. By day I am a community banker, by night I write personal true short stories that are intended to encourage and inspire the body of Christ.

    I grew up in the South on a dairy farm and was raised a Southern Baptist. My short story writings are snapshots of small moments in time; life experiences that teach a precept of the LORD. My inspiration is the Word of God and specifically the verse, " I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living". Psalm 27:13

    Though the writing was fulfilling and publishing a good experience, I have found it very difficult to market my book. I would appreciate any marketing advice from seasoned writers of published books.

    Thank you in advance for your advise and critique as I post new short stories from time to time.

    As we say in the South, much obliged!

    Jean Lee

    Hi Jean, that's awesome that you have published a book and discovered this great community of Christian writers, many of them have great advice and would gladly share it with you. Marketing can be tough for authors especially new ones, that is why Firebaptized Publishing has made it our highest priority to make sure that all our authors receive great marketing and that the books we publish receive the exposure they deserve. If you have a new manuscript or one that is already published we would love to take a look at it. www.firebaptizedpublishing.com

    I have been continuing to write short stories and would love to publish again if I can find the key to marketing. "Living the Legacy" (subtitled 'Finding the Goodness of the Lord in the Land of the Living) went title live August, 2015. I will be glad to send the manuscript and will try to do so very soon. Please provide information on who to direct it to. Best regards... and thank you! Jean Lee

    Pleasure to meet you! I'd like to be sure I call you by the right name--is "Lee" your last name, or is "Jean Lee" one of those wonderful Southern double names? :)

    Lee is my last name but all family and friends call me Jean Lee (both names). It was cool that you used both names also!
