Open Call for Submissions: 30 Days of Faith
My next novel, Frantic, releases on February 7th. It’s a fast-paced thriller about an average Joe–Marny Toogood–a gas station attendant, who has lived his life under the dark cloud of a “curse” given him at birth. Little does Marny know he has been chosen for something much greater in life. And when he crosses paths with Esther Rose and her brother, William, Marny is forced into the role of a hero. Only he doesn’t see himself as a hero at all. Running from not one, but two maniacs, Marny, Esther, and William come face to face with evil and Marny must find the hero within to survive. But being a hero isn’t anything Marny thought it was.
At the center of all this action is one special boy, William, and his unique gift. At the heart of the story is one theme: Marny then understood that trust required selfless surrender; faith was about doing God’s will, not his own. (pg. 258).
Here’s what I’d like to do. Frantic is all about the power of faith so for 30 days before the release I’d like to post your story of faith on this blog.
I’m calling it “30 days of faith.”
Tell me your story in as few or as many words as you’d like. When and how did God show his faithfulness to you or your family? Was there a time when faith saw you through a trial, either physical, emotional, spiritual, or all of the above? Did you witness a miracle or a direct act of God in your life? Or how about an incredible answer to prayer?
I want to hear your story and others NEED to hear it.
Don’t worry about how well or poor you write (I won’t be critiquing these!). I don’t care about that and others don’t either. The focus here is on the power and faithfulness of our God. Just write your story and leave it as a comment to this post. I’ll let you know when your story is going to post so you can share it with your friends and family. They’ll be blessed like the rest of us.
I’m hoping to get 30 stories but if we get more that’s great. And remember, it can be as short or long as you want . . . just tell your story, tell God’s story.
And as a thank you for those who write, after Frantic releases I’ll be choosing three contributors (randomly) to receive a free signed copy of the book.
