Two people get wed
Uniting two families
Adds links to the past.

The necklace link broke
Scattering the pearls on floor
Who’ll restring them now.

Making it hard to create

MY CHRISTIAN FAITH IS WHAT HAS KEPT ME GOING

Leave a comment

I know I’ve not posted anything here for a long, long while, for I’ve had far too many things regarding my better half and just didn’t feel like writing anything since nothing had been happening with my writing endeavors.

In all honesty, when I published my first two Christian books on January 11, 2020, I never imagined the transformative effect it would have on my life. Before this, I had been a secular individual who went to church on the major Christian holidays. My two Christian books got written due to my changing the concentration of the genre of books I was reviewing to that of nonfiction Christian books, which inspired me to write them. This, in turn, inspired me to become a Christian blogger, and my now possessing a passion for sharing the words of the Lord with others.

Ever since my better half had fallen three times in our co-op apartment, got taken to the hospital, and spent three months in a nearby REHAB center, I was left alone without a desire to endeavor to write anything for the items I was working on, including my posting anything here on my secular blog.

When my dear came home, I thought things would change for the better. Still, it hasn’t, as I now required the assistance of a home attendant eight hours a day to aid my looking after the individual I married, keeping our marriage vows, especially the one that states, in sickness and in health. The only thing that has kept me going has been the Lord’s presence in my life as I continue to share His words daily.

Despite not having individuals buy any of my books, regardless of the genre, despite my not gaining followers for my Christian blog. It has been the Christian faith I now possess that has made me the Christian woman I’ve now become.

If you’re a Christian man or woman, I would appreciate you checking out my Christian books [https://www.amazon.com/R-L-Morgan/e/B084G8JQP3], and to consider becoming a follower of my Christian blog, supporting my efforts in sharing the words of the Lord.

I would love to return to all of my writing endeavors, so I can complete the writing and publish them, but my heart isn’t there at this time, and it has been my Christian faith that has kept me going and has kept my mind and heart writing about the words of the Lord each day, and reviewing books of a nonfiction Christian nature.

Have a BLESSED DAY with your families from my better half and me !!! 😊😊😊

A RETURN TO NORMALCY, AT LAST, IS COMING

Leave a comment

Ever since my better half fell three times in our co-op apartment and got taken to the hospital on November 9, 2021, and then transferred to a nearby REHAB facility, my life has been in turmoil.

My secular writing endeavors halted abruptly, and I drastically reduced my presence on the internet, including maintaining this blog. Luckily, ever since I published my first two Christian books on January 11, 2020, and got inspired to start writing a Christian blog, I began to discover my Christian wait and the relationship I have with the Lord. This relationship has kept me going throughout the ordeal I’ve been dealing with not having my better half with me since November. I missed celebrating my dear’s birthday, followed by not celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary a few days later. We missed celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year, as well as my 71st birthday last month. It has been lonely not having someone sleeping by my side each night. Finally, this Thursday, February 10, 2022, my dear’s coming home. I’ve arranged to have a home attendant come to our home each day for a few hours to keep an eye on my better half, and to assist, if necessary, in the daily functional activities of getting dressed, washing, etc.

I can return to my previous secular activities full force with this finally happening. My Christian personae can return to making her presence known and promoting her books and blog. Since my Christian presence has kept me going, I would appreciate it if everyone would kindly support my Christian endeavors by following me on my blog and my Christian Twitter and Facebook accounts; and considering getting copies of my Christian books.

MY CHRISTIAN FAITH HAS TAKEN OVER

Leave a comment

Little did I realize when I wrote and published my first two Christian books on January 11, 2020, after being inspired by all of the nonfiction Christian books I had reviewed since August 2018, that my Christian faith would take over my life, but it has.

A month after releasing my two Christian books, I started to write my Christian blog, “Trying to Be a Good Christian Woman,” and I haven’t stopped sharing the words of our Lord and Savior. Now, I find doing this has made me feel more fulfilled than I’ve ever felt before. This year, in October, I wanted to offer these two Christian fiction books as paperbacks; so, I started to review and re-edit the manuscripts and create new covers for both, which I did. Here is the link to all of my Christian endeavors on Amazon:

However, at the same time, I felt an urge and opportunity to communicate my passion for sharing the Lord’s words with others by compiling my third Christian, this time a nonfiction one, that I’ve titled “Let’s Discuss Scripture.”

Despite my time being fraughted with my Christian endeavors, all of my secular writing endeavors took a second stage; in other words, they got placed on the back burners. On Friday, I got a frantic call from my publisher, telling me there were issues with the KINDLE version of my debut secular YA Paranormal romance novel, “I Kissed a Ghost.” Hearing this, I decided to place my Christian endeavors on the back burner for a change. I’m happy to say that the corrections for this secular undertaking have been accomplished and that the KINDLE version is available again. Here is the link for the KINDLE version on Amazon:

Being a multi-genre author, I’ve still got two unfinished manuscripts that I’m still aiming to have at least one finished still in time for the holidays. My adult Contemporary Romance novel, “His Darkest Secret,” is now 90 completed, and my YA Urban Fantasy romance, “The Secret of the Well,” is about 85% completed, with the good news being, I’ve created covers for both books.

Finally, the black sheep of my writing personas has rewritten her debut erotic LGBTQ novel with a new cover; and has also published her third endeavor, this one, a collection of three erotic romance novelettes.

Sorry for not having posted in a long, long while. Starting next year, I will create a set schedule where each of my writing personas will have time to do what they need to do for their specific genres.

Meanwhile, I would love for everyone to check out all of my endeavors mentioned above and consider giving them as gifts for your friends and family. THANKS for everyone’s kind support, and have a BLESSED WEEKEND with your families !!! 😊 😊 😊

I AM STILL HERE AND DOING GREAT

Leave a comment

My dear blog followers, I truly love that you are following me here on my blog. While I am doing great, the concentration of my writing has shifted ever since I’ve published my first two Christian books on January 11, 2020, as I am now a Christian blogger who share the words of the Lord daily.

Since no one is purchasing any of my books, regardless of the genre I have slowed down the progress on the completion of all of my writing endeavors, and am still looking to have my two secular romances completed by the end of November 2020.

Getting back to my Christian blog writing, I am now ranked #73 on this Christian women blog site:

https://blog.feedspot.com/christian_women_blogs/

I would love to move up on my ranking, and I am therefore asking each of you to support this endeavor by becoming followers of my Christian blog: http://www.RLMorgan1951.wordpress.com and to follow me on my Christian Twitter account [will follow you back]

THANKS for supporting me in this endeavor and have a BLESSED WEEKEND with your families from my family and me !!! 😊 😊 😊

I HAVE RETURNED – THIS TIME FOR GOOD !!!

Leave a comment

Ever since I published my first two Christian books on January 11, 2020, my life has gotten transformed:

These two books inspired me to begin writing my Christian blog, which I wound up aptly decided to name “Trying to Be a Good Christian Woman.” http://www.RLMorgan1951.wordpress.com  It is here that I found myself sharing the Lord’s words in ways I never got to believe had been possible before.

On my Christian blog, I am now, on an almost daily basis I do a daily scripture reflection. I am now back to doing what I hope will be a weekly occurrence, where I discuss a specific topic, going into more detail than my daily reflection using scripture in what I am attempting to communicate.

It is due to this that I’m now in the process of writing/compiling my third Christian book, which is now about 80% completed. This time, instead of fiction, the book will be nonfiction and fraught with scripture. I now hope to have the book published by the end of October. 

I had gotten locked out of my original Christian Facebook account a while back, so I created a new one. It is here that I had a Facebook group for my Sisters-in-Christ, which got lost at the same time. Ever since this loss, I felt I have been missing some

I have just created a new Christian Facebook group for all of my Sisters-in-Christ who are Christian Authors or Christian Bloggers. 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/3074130432864564

Naturally, to go along with the above, I now also have a Christian Twitter account http://www.twitter.com/RLMorgan13

I would love those followers I have here who are of the Christian faith to support me by following me on one of the above links or considering purchasing one of my two Christian books.

I AM NOW BACK to being involved with my secular endeavors, including finishing my two secular romances. “His Darkest Secret,” an Adult Contemporary romance, which, as far as I can recall, is about 85% – 90% complete. The second is my YA Urban Fantasy romance, “The Secret of the Well, ” a stand-alone sequel to my debut YA Paranormal romance, “I Kissed a Ghost,” which is about 80% finished.

Starting this coming Sunday, I will start on a complete re-read and re-editing of “His Darkest Secret,” which given my going Christian endeavors, I hope to type that elusive final period of this manuscript by mid-October.

COMING TO A REALIZATION

Leave a comment

I know besides my possibly doing a recent post regarding the giveaway for one of my debut Christian books that I haven’t posted any for the longest period of time.

This past Thursday, April 29th, I got locked out of my Christian Facebook account, with Facebook telling me that my account has temporary been suspended due to suspicious activity on it. This is the second time this has happened to me.

The first time had been after getting out of the hospital where I had hospitalized for experiencing a loss of blood. Ultimately, my account got closed and I lost access to the Christian Facebook group I had created for my Christian sisters. I just pray that I’m not going to lose total access to my account for a second time.

With this occurring I’m beginning to wonder whether the Lord is sending me a message because for the past several months I’ve neglected all of my secular writing and blogging activities and have concentrated all of my time with all of Christian endeavors.

So, starting this Sunday, I cutting back on Christian endeavors so I devote part of my time each day to the secular activities of writing and blogging that I’ve been neglecting.

Have a BLESSED WEEK in whatever you’re going to be doing !!! 😊😊😊

My Christian blog for anyone who is interested is located here, and despite the title all of my Christian sisters are invited to become one of my followers there.

MY TRANSFORMED CHRISTIAN EXISTENCE AS A CHRISTIAN WOMAN

Leave a comment

Last year I was still only an author with two books to my name as Robin Leigh Morgan and two more erotic books under a different pen name. Last year I was still only a blogger and a decently ranked book reviewer on Amazon. Last year I was still writing my multiple endeavors, which now included two Christian fiction books that got inspired by all the nonfiction Christian books I’d been reading and reviewing.

Little could I ever have expected what would take place after I would publish these two books on January 11, 2020. Here is the link to these two books on Amazon, which I wrote as R.L.Morgan.https://www.amazon.com/R-L-Morgan/e/B084G8JQP3

Each book is only $2.99 as a KINDLE and can be read for free if you have Amazon K.U. [KINDLE Unlimited].

A month after these books got published, I began writing my Christian blog, “Trying to Be a Good Christian Woman,” first on BlogSpot. Then do to issue connected to individuals wanting to follow it, I moved my blog to WordPress:

http://RLMorgan1951.wordpress.com

Shortly after this, I started a Facebook group to form a sisterhood for my Christian sisters to join, “Worldwide Christian Women United” https://www.facebook.com/groups/522823735286990.

These days I’m finding myself posting a Daily Scripture Reflection, a weekly discussion for a topic of interest many, if not, most Christians. I’ve also increased the number of reviews I’m writing for nonfiction Christian books, from about 45% of 260+ books I’d reviewed in 2019 to the almost 70% of the approximate 135 reviews I’ve written this; I’m posting these reviews on Amazon, GoodReads, and LibraryThing and my Christian blog.

I’m also finding myself interacting with other Christians, especially my Christian sisters, on the increasing number of Christian Facebook groups, where I’m posting scripture to their needs. If I didn’t know better, I feel as if I’ve started a ministry of my own.

I’ve just started a new account on Twitter, for the Christian woman I’ve become:  http://www.Twitter.com/RLMorgan13

If you’re a Christian, especially if you’re a Christian sister, I would love for you to become part of, and support my endeavors as I shared the word of our Lord with others, both Christians and non-Christians alike.

THANKS for being the Christians you are and have a MOST BLESSED DAY with whatever you’re going to be doing, especially if it involves doing something for our Lord.

Your Christian sister,

R.L. [Robin Leigh] Morgan

FRUSTRATIONS ABOUND REGARDING MY CHRISTIAN ENDEAVORS

Leave a comment

Ever since I published my first two Christian books on January 11, 2020, [ https://www.amazon.com/R-L-Morgan/e/B084G8JQP3 ], my life has been transformed in ways I’d never thought imaginable.
I started a Christian blog, “Trying to Be a Good Christian Woman,” on Blogspot.com. Issues regarding the site being unsafe, so I moved the blog to WordPress http://www.RLMorgan1951.wordpress.com , where I copied all the Christian nonfiction reviews I’ve written from my original blog site. Which got followed by creating a Christian Facebook group for all my Christian “sisters.”

With the COVID-19 virus afoot, I transferred all my writing attention to my Christian endeavors, causing me to put my two secular romance endeavors on the back burner. I’ve tried once to go back to writing these two manuscripts once so far but couldn’t get back into the mindset I would need. Now, starting tomorrow, Sunday, July 19, 2020, I’ll be back to placing some of my writing concentrations to completing these two endeavors before the end of the year, so these two novels will be ready for the Christmas holidays.

Coming down with writer’s block might be frustrating almost every author, I found myself even more frustrated when I discovered I might be facing some copyright issues as I wrote my third Christian fiction endeavor. Throwing the 25 pages I had written into the trash, I found myself somewhat depressed. But, the Christian stuff I’ve been writing for my blog, helps to restore my sense of having some worth. It’s rather frustrating when individuals.

What I need right now is to get followers for my Christian blog, so I can add more features to it. I’d love to get individuals to get copies of my Christian books, to give me an increased desire to write more Christian books, while not forgetting about my secular endeavors. The sale of all of my endeavors will allow me to get decent covers made for my books, instead of the covers merely stating the title. Individuals must be consistently liking my reviews on Amazon since my reviewer ranking is still quite good, 1,106 as of the last update. Any support I can get will be greatly appreciated.

A BLESSED SUNDAY to everyone and your families !!! 😊 😊 😊

JENNYGAYLE TAKES HOME THE GRAND PRIZE

Leave a comment

F or all practical purposes, JennyGayle always imagined she was talented.
AN d perhaps she was.
DA ily she could be seen in the spare bedroom in her luxury condo apartment working away at creating knick-knacks she wanted to sell at the annual artist event in her town.
N o one ever thought she would ever decide to enter one of the judging contests, let alone the one for handmade curios, but she did.
G regarious as she usually was, today, JennyGayle acted quite timid and shy as the judges started to carefully examine each item to determine the winner of the Grand Prize.
L Etting nothing pass her sight, she watched as the four judges huddle in a far corner discussing what they’ve seen, and as they paraded with the massive trophy, she became astonished when they stopped at her table and placed the trophy on it for having created the best FANDANGLE they’ve ever seen.
