I was trying to encourage a fellow writer today who was feeling down because of mean-spirited Amazon customer reviewers. We’ve all read a few doozies that made us shake our heads, haven’t we? The struggle is not unique to writers, as Stephen King states. It applies to just about anything you do publicly, or that becomes public knowledge. We will always have detractors, critics, and naysayers. It’s a sign that you’re doing something that matters.
Anyway, I came upon some sage advice from some fairly well-known writers on the topic:
At long last! The DARKROOM Book Trailer is here!
Well, today is the day I’ve been waiting for for all my life as a writer. This is the day my first book published by a major house (DARKROOM, Howard Books/Simon & Schuster) was released.
There’s been a lot of excitement over the release on facebook and twitter, with numerous positive reviews from bloggers, review sites, and even major news outlets.
It’s been hard to keep up with everything, but I wanted to make sure I lived this day according to my faith. So I started with waking up early to go to a 6AM prayer meeting at my church in which many businesspeople gathered to encourage and pray for one another. I love praying for people because…
My publicist just sent this review of DARKROOM to me. It’s great to see that my book is getting around to the different publications and media outlets. After waiting for over a year, the publication of DARKROOM is about to happen! From the very beginning, this has been a journey of faith and resolve.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. –Philippians 3:12-14 (TNIV)

Human “logic” dictates that we know all there is to know and it is based on scientific evidence, or “proof,” as it were. But when confronted by things science cannot explain what do we do? Impose our beliefs, or what we want to believe upon the situation and hope we are right?

Part III in the BEYOND JUSTICE MOVIE blog miniseries.
If Beyond Justice made it to Hollywood, who do you think should play the role of ex-mobster turned catholic priest Frank “The Bishop” Morgan?
Readers will remember Bishop as the tough as nails inmate whom everyone feared and respected (mostly feared) in the Salton Sea Supermax, where our protagonist Sam Hudson gets sent to as he awaits execution for a crime he didn’t commit.
Some fans have suggested the role of Bishop be played by John Travolta.Â What do you think?
