Today on my blog, I've written the down and dirty about what authors make on average. There I list income for self-publishing (indie) authors and for traditionally publishing authors. Blog here: http://melindainman.com/arent-all-the-authors-rich/. Keep those numbers in mind as you look at this graphic that shows the average costs of publishing a book.

‪I'm crowdfunding The Shadows Come. It's an exciting way to bring a book to market, to let readers know what's coming, and to give others the joy of being included in the project. Come and see! https://buff.ly/2RF30pq

What a year 2018 was for you, dear Barb! Oh my! One thing after another! Thanks be to God you’ve almost made it out of the Vulnerable year. Now on to the Prayerful year. I love what you said here. It’s so true and real: “none of what we have can be taken for granted. We live as we do by the grace of God. Our homes, our health, our constitutional rights and form of government can all disappear at His will. As Job said (and he had some pretty extensive experience with vulnerability) ‘the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away’ (Job 1:21).” In our comfort, it’s so easy for us to forget that reality until it freezes, ices the roof, knocks down the wires, and lands us on our bottom in the snow. For us it was the move across the country, making all those Michigan treasures no longer ours. I’m so sorry you suffered all of this in 2018. What a year! May the Lord in his mercy grant you a blessed year in 2019!

Great encouragement here, Stephen! I hadn’t thought about the whys of Malachi for a while, but the Lord certainly had to prepare the Jews for a different kind of Messiah than they had expected. They expected a conquering King when what they needed was a Savior. Malachi was so instructive, as you said. Their love note telling them what to look for next. This post provides a great meditation on that!

Our God is too real, and too big, and too glorious to work according to our human expectations and convenient timetables. He loves us too much to regularly do just what we want when we want in our times of crisis. But he always sees us. He always hears us. And in Christ, he will answer, not necessarily when and how we want, but with the answer we need, painful as it may be for now, for our ultimate good and glory.

Comfort to Keep You Going. In our own strength, we can't live the Christian life or fulfill our ministry of writing. Realizing that we can't rely on ourselves, but only on God, must be learned experientially. Suffering is required. But the God of all comfort is with us, superintending and encouraging. https://seriouslywrite.blogspot.com/2018/11/comfort-to-keep-you-going-by-melinda.html?m=1

‪How to Find and Attend a Church. You want to go to church, but you haven't done it yet. Maybe you've been invited, or you simply want to go. But you've never been to church before, and you don't want to feel awkward or out of place. I wrote this for you. https://buff.ly/2xckqx9

Why Writers Need to Read. Marketing consumes more than half an author’s time. This is NOT what nurtures an author’s soul. To create stories, we need the space to think and the inspirational intake of words. We can’t neglect our own reading. #SeriouslyWrite https://buff.ly/2pD4oZe

“We are a forgetful people. We need storytellers. We need someone to lay the drama of God’s love before us. We need to be reminded of the uncommon grace of God.” William R. White
