Recently, some published members of our local ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) chapter rented a booth at a nearby weekend arts & crafts fair to sell their books.
Although I am still unpublished, I offered to come and help with the sales. I enjoyed the afternoon chatting with several of the authors and listening to them interact with customers. I also learned a few things about their books during our discussions and want to share them with you.
My first featured author is Allison Pittman. She is co-president of the Christian Writer’s Group in Universal City, where I first met her. She and Brenda Blanchard, the other co-president, begin each meeting with prayer requests, followed by prayer.
Every. Request. Prayed. For.
I love that. It reminds us every Monday evening of what we are truly about. Seeking and surrendering to the will of our Heavenly Father. In all things. Including our writing.
We invite you to follow our Advent blog, a compilation of daily devotionals written by the members of our writer’s group.
Allison is also vice president of the ACFW local chapter, Alamo City Christian Fiction Writers. We meet at Le Madeleine in San Antonio. I love Allison’s encouragement, wisdom and transparency and am blessed to join her and the other local authors each month.
On to her books. Published a dozen times so far, Allison’s books reach across the last century and draw us into the lives of strong, colorful women caught up in the times they lived in.
Her books include:
The Sister Wife series:
For Time and Eternity (2011 Christy Finalist)

She called her “All for a…” series her Flapper books, featuring strong women in the roaring twenties:
All for a Sister
All for a Song
All for a Story
Also set in the twenties:
Lilies in Moonlight
Her baseball novels feature women at the turn of the century:
Her Crossroads of Grace books are about strong women on the frontier:
With Endless Spirit

The Christmas season is a perfect time to dive into these stories filled with the hope of our Savior and the love our God.
