That Dog Won’t Hunt by Brandilyn Collins

I’ve been a Brandilyn Collins fan for a while now. In fact, when I first gave my life to Christ, I’d been writing for about a year. I discovered there was such a thing as Christian Fiction and found a book that fit my taste. The book was Eyes of Elisha by Brandilyn Collins. I found her website and e-mailed her because the novel I’d written was of a similar genre. She e-mailed back immediately and suggested I join the ACFW.

I don’t do a lot of book reviews here. I figure you’ve got Amazon and Goodreads for that. However, an e-book I read recently cuts near and dear to my writer/marketer heart. Amanda Luedeke, literary agent over at Chip MacGregor’s agency, took every bit of the platform creation advice she’d been handing out to writers over her career and put it all into one neat package.
