Two More Book Awards!

We’re excited to congratulate Leanne Pankuch and Leslea Wahl on their Moonbeam Awards wins!

 

Dragon's Truth Moonbeam Award

Where You Lead Award New

Did You See…?

Leanne Pankuch was recently featured in a guest post on shadow plotting your villain’s story line on TeachingAuthors.com. Leanne is the author of the young adult fantasy, Dragon’s Truth, which is officially six-months-old. (Go to Leanne’s site to enter a contest to celebrate, but hurry! It ends September 30th!)

In case you don’t know what shadow plotting is (We didn’t until we read the interview!), it’s plotting the main character’s and the villain’s journey in your writing process. There’s so much more to it than that, though, so you’ll want to go read the complete article/interview. You may find a better way to chronicle the journeys of your lead characters!

Don’t Miss Leanne Pankuch’s Celebration!

In honor of the six-month anniversary for the release of Dragon’s Truth, Leanne Pankuch is hosting a giveaway at her website! You can find all the details here, but hurry! The contest ends September 30!

Half Birthday

A Shout Out To Our Authors

We’ve said this before, but it always bears repeating. We wouldn’t be here without our authors.

We’ve been in business for over fifteen years now, and we’ve been fortunate to work with some amazingly talented authors. We helped launch careers, have watched as authors have moved on to astounding success, and the awards have been plentiful.

Our books have been approved by the Catholic Writers Guild, have been finalists in major contests like the American Christian Fiction Writers and Romantic Times, have won awards from Readers Favorite, RWA chapters, Moonbeam Children’s Awards, Literary Classics, and more, and have been reviewed by School Library Journal, Kirkus, Booklist, Midwest Book Reviews, and more.

We have authors impacting today’s youth by speaking at schools and teaching at camps, authors that have now sold over 1,000,000 copies and 500,000 copies of their combined books ( not all of them were published by Vinspire), and authors who continue to amaze us with their perseverance, their drive to succeed, and their graciousness.

So, once again, we celebrate our authors! We’re so thankful for each and every one of them and applaud each achievement!

Where You Lead Wins 2nd Place Award

Where You Lead, the inspiring young adult novel by Leslea Wahl, won second place in the Colorado Independent Publishers Association Contest! Have you read Eve’s search for a boy she knows she’s never seen and God’s will?

Where You Lead Award

Congratulations to Judith Ingram!

Judith Ingram, author of the Moonseed Trilogy and A Devotional Walk with Forgiveness, has two stories appearing in upcoming anthologies!

• Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Forgiveness Fix accepted her short story, “A Last Look,” which recounts a final visit to the house where she grew up and experienced abuse and illustrates how allowing ourselves to love and be loved helps us forgive and move beyond old pain. Book will be released November 5, 2019. (See the cover below!)

• Inspire Grace will publish her true short story, “The Language of Grace,” which describes how experiencing hardship gives us language to understand and speak into the lives of others who have similarly suffered. Launch party is scheduled for December 2019.

As always, we love to celebrate our authors’ successes, and we hope you’ll join us in congratulating Judith on these two achievements!
