This is MY kinda book

I'm a devout Christian.  A follower of the Lord.  A seeker of His glory and a truster in His ways.  I don't like to watch movies that have unneccessary sex scenes or drop the F-bomb every other sentence.  In the same way, I don't care to read books that are too explicit.  I like a good story, one with lots of imagination and good characters.  I like to be taken away from wherever I am, transported by the magic of an author's words.  I don't like the jab at my spirit that comes with cruelty or vulgarity.  In this same sense, I like to keep my own writing clean.  I hear Christian authors say that if you add cussing, it is not the author who is cussing it is the character.  I understand that, but I wouldn't care to read it, so why would my audience?

My mystery novel is absent of crude language, of sexuality, it is safe for all ages.  I deem it young adult fiction as it is fitting for a younger audience.  But I believe it will be a good and entertaining read for mystery lovers of all ages.  Do not be afraid to by this for your children, yet do not be afraid to sit down and read it yourself.

Hi Andrea! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I too am writing a book for young adult fiction. I just thought that was such a coincidence!
I'll be back soon!
