Christmas, 2002

Welcome to the final newsletter of 2002 for inspirational fiction author Lauralee Bliss!

I appreciate so much your support and prayers over the year. I began 2002 in a seed-planting mode, not knowing what would happen. I am happy say that seeds are slowly beginning to sprout! I still await major crops yet to come, but certainly God is moving in the ministry, and for this I am truly thankful. I pray that you also will see God's hand moving in your life as you reflect on 2002. May He give you a vision of hope and blessing for 2003.


-  I am pleased to announce that at long last, TO LIVE AGAIN, with a revised cover, is now available in print! You can order this book directly from the Australian publisher, Writers Exchange, for $9.95 plus $3.00 postage. A sample chapter and reviews are on my web site.

- My first Civil War novel, IN THE CROSSFIRE, is set to debut in March, 2003. The second book in this trilogy will be released in August, 2003, and the third, in January of 2004. 

- My next Heartsong Presents contemporary romance, A STORYBOOK FINISH, is set to be released in May of 2003. A summary and a sample chapter will be forthcoming on my web site.

- I am also excited to announce that I have sold a contemporary romantic mystery to Heartsong Presents, tentatively titled AGELESS LOVE.

- 2003 appears to be the year of the writers' conferences. It has been some time since I've attended a conference, and am thankful for this wonderful opportunity. I will be attending two this year. The first, sponsored by Electronically Published Internet Connection (EPIC) will focus on the industry of electronic publishing and will be held in Tampa, Florida in March. The second is a major Christian Writers Conference located at Mt. Hermon, California. This event, attended by many editors and writers, is the premier writing conference for Christian authors. I hope to learn a great deal, along with pitching some of my major works to the editors. I would appreciate your prayers during these two major trips, as well as open doors in 2003 for my writing ministry.
