  1. Shelley!!!!! The fact that I stumbled across your site I hope is providential. I have been a writer for over two decades and have four Christian fiction books (traditionally) published with a fifth coming out this year. I know the art of writing (have taught writing at the college level) but I am stupid (yes stupid) with social media, marketing and technology. It must be a left brain-right brain thing. I just downloaded your pdf. Hoping I have found a place….a potential coach…a potential miracle….:)
