Mike Dellosso has been one of my clients for a long time. He has a powerful story to go with his latest book. He is using his self-published book, Fear Mountain, to fund his family’s adoption of a teenage girl.
First let me express my gratefulness to God for letting me represent the authors of the following three books. All three represent God at work in the lives of the writers, each in God’s distinctive way of helping them overcome huge disadvantages. These books represent apologetics, help for parents whose children are afflicted by autism, and God’s miraculous way of intervening in life’s desperate situations told in story form.
As a literary agent I’m vitally interested in helping authors think marketing. But I also occasionally make suggestions to publishers, since I once ran bookstores and did marketing copy for books. After Zondervan’s sale price in June for The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel Fast produced sales exceeding expectations—and I read that angels were again on shopper minds—I contacted Harvest House about sale efforts for Dr. Robert Lesslie’s angel series. I discovered they had already made plans to do exactly that.

The mountain breezes are cool as we snake our way up the interstate to the Ridgecrest Conference Center. My fellow writers and I are on our way to the legendary Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference in Black Mountain, North Carolina, the second largest annual gathering of Christian writers in the nation. BRMCWC has a reputation as the place where careers are launched, visions are realized, and years of hard work find their reward.
