Unless I change my mind in the future, this site has retired for good.

However, I’m keeping it up because of the many resources and information found in the posts. I may index the site at some future date to make it easier for readers to find what they’re interested in, but I have no definite plans to do that soon.

Please visit NewLDSFiction.com where I will continue to spotlight new releases by LDS authors.

Quite possibly. I’d estimate I know more than half of the regular commenters on this site in real life or via Facebook friendship under my real name. And sometimes it’s really hard not to slip and mention something you’ve only told LDS Publisher when I’m talking to you in real life. It’s even harder when […]

Today’s Hint: If you’ve ever been to a LDStorymakers Conference, you’ve probably passed me in the hall. Or attended a class I was in. Or sat next to me for a meal. The very first time I went to Storymaker’s, I wore my work uniform—the one from my day job, way back when I worked […]

…that’s me. As long as the word “Book” goes in front of it, I’m okay with it. And that is today’s hint. I read. A lot. As a child, my goal was to read every book in the library before I graduated from elementary school. I didn’t achieve that goal, but it was sure fun […]

Dear LDS Publisher, Did you know that some of your posts are disappearing? Most specifically, the post about MY book? And also other book spotlight posts? What’s up with that?
