I’m so glad to see you here. :)

One month ago, I joined ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers).

So far, I have found many people trying to please and offer advice as needed. Their website was a bit overwhelming at first, but now I feel right at home. It was to my surprise to see so many people contributing.

I will concentrate on the road that brought me to writing and started a small flame within me. I hope that it never burns out, and ACFW will help me accomplish my goals.

First, I have started this wonderful journey through getting to know an awesome writer, Nancy Jo Jenkins.  Her novel and her words inspired me to write. Coldwater Revival is a book to cherish. I’m so glad that I came to love this author so much and found a great friend! Thank you for giving me a dream!

I came across ACFW through Shawna Williams, a wonderful author. We’ve corresponded in one of the forums that led me to her website. Visiting, I have found one of the links pointing to ACFW.

So, after I visited the website and read about the conference coming up, I was not going to miss it. Pulled in two opposite directions, one of the voices was telling me I’m not ready yet. Don’t be a hypocrite. The other one was assuring me it’s my call. You have it.

When my employer agreed that I go, I signed up for it thinking God knew before I did. Two critiques of my work have been booked, as well as two appointments with agents to see if I’m on the right track. Any advice from them will be much appreciated. I wish to thank Susan Wingate for opening her heart to lead me through the creation of my website.

Also, I wish to thank Lisa Hanson and Iola Goulton for providing constructive feedbacks. Lisa is a wonderful gal who acts like a bug killer in my writing. And Iola possesses a sixth sense by helping me complete my vision of a story. And I wish to thank the rest of the girls in the Amazon forum who have been good friends and offered words of encouragement.

  1. I read your post on Rachelle Gardner’s blog and came to offer realistic words encouragement. Your novel is set in historical novel which will be dificult to sell to the general American public. (Mine is set in China and it’s not an easy sale also). But you have 40 million people in Poland and millions of Polish people in th United States, Canada and other countries. It might be useful to connect with many Polish-American association and build contacts that will help you to sell your book to a targeted audience. If you write your book with your target audience in mind, you might do well. Also chck if you can add a jump into the future and have one chapter in modern Poland. Focus on the first book only and hopefully, it’ll will do well. Best wishes to you and your family.

  2. Hi Anna!

  3. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I to find this matter to be
    actually one thing that I believe I might never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am having a look ahead to your subsequent put up, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

  4. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be
    on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
    people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Thanks
