Christmas Post! (Plus Updates)

Hello, everyone!  Christmas might be just about over, but it’s not to late to wish everybody a very merry Christmas. I hope this season finds you well, and that you’ve all had a great holiday! But, to business. Christmas is about giving. It’s about the greatest gift of all: Jesus Christ. It’s also about giving to friends and family, and spending time with them.

Unfortunately, everyone seems to get caught up in the hype and excitement of ‘What’s Santa left me under the tree?’ We seem to miss the forest for the Christmas trees. I mean, yes, Christmas is about giving. Yes, that can mean giving love and time, and even presents as well, but mostly it’s about the Greatest Gift of Love. I hope everyone will maybe take a moment out of their schedule, or stay awake just a bit longer, if their tired out from too much turkey, and think about that baby who lay in a lowly manger; that baby who was born to die for us.

*Special* Christmas Updates!

Wow. I can’t believe it’s almost 2017! It’s a bit crazy, how fast everything goes. In April, I’ll have been blogging for a year! Thanks so much to everyone who has read my blog and liked my posts and commented or whatever. Also, thanks to all my followers who have to put up with an extra email in their already overcrowded inboxes every once in a while. You guys are great! 🙂

Before I go, I have a couple of updates to let you guys know about. First of all, The Tangle, my paranormal horror novel, will be released as a series on, beginning early next year. I will release a new chapter every two weeks, up through late August of 2017. You probably already knew that. Or maybe you didn’t. But you also probably didn’t know that the first chapter of the series will be released in early February of next year, specifically February 11. You can learn more about the series here.

Also, speaking of presents and giving, I’ve released my historical fiction short story ‘Miss’ as a free e-book on It’s a really quick read (under 4,000 words) and it was originally created for a short fiction contest on As I did not place in that contest, however, I’ve decided to release the story for free. You can get your copy here. I hope you enjoy it!

Merry Christmas!

Wednesday with Words: The Truth and the Shadow

Wow. I can’t believe that it’s December already! It seems like just yesterday I started school again, and now I’ve finished several of my books… And, since it’s December, the Christmas month, I thought I’d share this quote from Athanasius’s On the Incarnation. In this part of the book, he is arguing against the assertions of the Jews that the Messiah has not yet come.

When did prophet and vision cease from Israel? Was it not when Christ came, the Holy One of holies? It is, in fact, a sign and notable proof of the coming of the Word that Jerusalem no longer stands, neither is prophet raised up nor vision revealed among them. And it is natural that it should be so, for when He that was signified had come, what need was there any longer of any so signify Him? And when the Truth had come, of what further need was there of the shadow?

Athanasius, On the Incarnation
