Periscope How-To for Authors

Periscope is one of the best things happening on social media right now. I’m just getting started, but I’ve looking forward to the possibilities! Pericope helps authors send their message into the world in a personal way. Who better to tell your story than you can? Who better to share your content or your passion?

The Tricia Goyer books you probably haven’t read … but should!

I love writing books, and I love when readers are able to walk into bookstores and pick up a copy just as it comes out, yet I’ve written some books where doing that hasn’t been so easy.

9 Phrases Every Kid Needs to Hear

As an author I use creative phrases all the time, but sometimes at home I find myself repeating the same ones: No. Stop that. What were you thinking? That wasn’t a very good choice. Seriously?! Sometimes these phrases are well-deserved. “No, you cannot fill the bathtub with jello.” But most of the time the words slip out because I’m tired. Or they spill out from habit. It takes work for me to notice my child and to find something good {Read More}
