Some interesting things happened last week on the blogs of other notables in the CBA.

First, Ted Dekker posted his comments about the writing guidelines of the Love Inspired book line, an imprint of Harlequin that publishes Christian romance novels. His opinion sparked a flurry of comments both supportive and not so supportive.

One of those comments came from a rebuttal post by agent Chip MacGregor. If you haven’t been following this, it’s pretty interesting stuff. And if you read the posts, make sure to peruse the comments too. Ted does wind up backtracking a bit and apologizing to Love Inspired authors, whom he never meant to insult. And Chip then gives Ted kudos for “a very nice gesture on his part.”

Check out the posts and see what you think.

Now, in other exciting news, Friday I got the cover art for Darlington Woods. Leave a comment and tell me what you think.

  1. Love it – looks awesome

    I like it.Darlington Woods is one of my favorite authors and I love his alien sci-fi books. Just kidding, Mike. Another good cover.


  3. Beautiful cover, Mike. Just beautiful. About Dekker's comments, it's interesting that we just recently had discussions at this blog about appropriate content in Christian novels. Though some items on the Steeple Hill list do seem a bit extreme, I side with Chip on this debate. A good segment of CBA readers do not want to read profanity and coarse language. I appreciate Steeple Hill's desire to maintain wholesome speech in an industry that generally appears to be sliding the other direction.


  4. Yes, the cover is enticing.


  5. This is an amazing cover, Mike! I'll check out the comments!


  6. Cover looks good. I can't get past the romance guidelines.My favorite is "no sexy dancing like waltzing cheek to cheek."I guess ultraviolent zombie novels are not going to work for them.


  7. Awesome cover! Really conveys the feel of the story.
