This book is really more of a booklet, about 3000 words, and a free download on SmashWords. However, I felt it was worth mentioning, as it covers the basics of Why do we Write, and is it a Calling?
From a Christian perspective, Londa recounts her own journey of faith into writing, and the questions she asked, which it would do well for those of us who are writers to consider.Spiritual and practical, this booklet is a good resource for the Christian considering stepping out on faith as a writer.

This is a very inspiring book aimed at Christians who believe they are called and have an "anointing" to write. It offers very practical instruction which will help any writer identify their genre, build a platform, understand themselves better as a Christian writer, and get busy sharing their passion with the world. I highly recommend it. Dr. Lalita R. Smith, Inspired Writer
