Book Contributions -- What's In It For Me
  • by Tonya Stokes, Editor, The Sweet Spot
    Tentative Title: What's in It for Me? Faith-Building Stories of How the Bible Has Changed People's Lives
  • Submissions Needed
  • While most Christians have experienced comfort, encouragement, and instruction from God's Word, the editor of this new book is interested in specific instances where a particular Scripture verse/passage provided clear guidance, comfort, inspiration, conviction, humility, encouragement, etc.
  • Contact: dhill@hilbilt.com -- put SUBMISSION in the subject line and include contact information (email address, physical address, and phone number) within your email.
  • The story doesn't need to be in perfect form; editor will develop and edit as needed.
  • Manuscript is in the proposal stage. No promise of remuneration.
  • When the project is picked up by a publisher those chosen to participate will receive a copy of the book, a biographical paragraph within the book, and possibly a small honorarium.

  • Tentitive Title: When Your Babies Are Too Big to Rock L.O.V.E. Them: Helping Older and Adult Children Through Crises
  • L.O.V.E. is an acrostic for Listen to their heart (without speaking your mind), Offer Advice Carefully, Verify the Truth of Who They Are in Christ, and Everything to God in Prayer--Share Carefully with Others.
  • Author needs serious and humorous stories of parents and children who have successfully worked through these areas. Also needs stories of "what not to do" AND stories of parents who have had to "release" their child to the Lord's care because the child refuses to cooperate with given direction and help.
  • Any of these can be from the parent's or the child's perspective.
  • Names can be changed as needed.
  • Stories may be edited for clarity or space, while retaining integrity of the story.
