Hi friends! In yesterday’s article, I questioned whether or not it would be wise for me to read reviews of my books on Amazon and other retailer websites. Nobody commented, but I did talk it through with a friend over the phone.
In the end I decided to leave it! I may change my mind at some point, but I felt that I wanted to keep the peace of mind I currently have surrounding my books and avoid any risk of emotional damage. I’ve got a feeling I might change my mind, but that’s the present situation. It makes me feel like a bit of wimp, but then again I wouldn’t jump under a train (hopefully), so I suppose self-preservation is a valid instinct!
On the subject of books, I have scheduled some promotions for my book The God Articles. This is my most popular book on Amazon in terms of highest star ratings. I have scheduled promotions with Book Cave, Bargain Booksy and The Fussy Librarian, and the book will be on offer for $1.99 for a few days, reduced from the usual $8.99. The book is already reduced to the discounted price on TealightBooks.com, so do avail yourself of this offer if you’re interested in reading the book.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
The God Articles is a 430+ page compilation of dialogues, discourses, prayers and poems written by philosopher Steven Colborne. Readers will find deeply personal articles portraying times of spiritual crisis, as well as vivid descriptions of pivotal moments in Colborne’s faith life such as water baptism, Holy Spirit baptism, and miraculous healing.
You can find the book here:
Barnes and Noble
Let me know in the comments if you have any questions about the book, I’ll gladly answer them!

I was just thinking this morning how sharing my writing with others helps me to be a better writer, a better human. It would be easy to trash anything that received less than terrific feedback, or worse, negative criticism. I am my toughest critic and I obsess about details. A perfectionist. Only God is perfect. I’m in the middle of a human existence where I’m learning where my worth truly lies. From your writing, seems like you relate. I must personally remember “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” Colossians 3:23 Then it does not matter what anyone thinks of the things I write. It’s always a blessing to run into other believers. Be blessed, my friend.🙏🏼❤️🌸
