The Christy Award 2020 Finalists

I’m excited to partner with ECPA and JustRead Publicity Tours in sharing about The Art of Writing & The Christy Award® 2020 Webinar Series!! Although this year’s events are being held exclusively online, I’ve personally had the pleasure of attending this event in person for the last three years and I highly recommend this year’s online experience for published and aspiring authors and even voracious readers of Christian Fiction.
