Going Quiet

Brace yourself. This post is going to be a little different. (Big breath.) Here we go…

After decades coasting along as a lukewarm Christian, and after a few more years of writing in the horror genre,* I experienced a series of events that can only be described as epiphanic… in the God sense, I mean, not the light bulb sense, though that also applies.

I mean seriously, folks, I wish I had always known to keep my eyes and ears open to God’s messages!

What was I waiting for, a sign in lights?

So now I’m writing in a new genre, the faith-inspired cozy mystery. My first mystery is out on submission right now! It’s a little daunting to start over with a new genre and a new pen name, but it’s all very exciting, too.

So what’s your new pen name, Priscilla?

Vera Day

Those who know me IRL will recognize the sentimentality of that pen name. Besides, it’s easy to spell.:-)

But what about blogging?

I started a new blog, a Christian fiction review blog, and I coerced bribed… Actually, four other Christian authors, all of them very talented, very intelligent, and very kind, VOLUNTEERED to jump on board. (Yay!)

So priscillabettisauthor.com will go quiet. I hope those of you who read Christian fiction or who are just curious join us at The Well Read Fish for a new review posted each Wednesday, starting today!

p.s. And I’d love it if you said hello on Twitter! @VeraDayAuthor

*That’s not to say people of faith can’t write in other genres. Ron Kelly, for example, is a born-again Christian and writes terrifying dark fantasy. Rami Ungar is a practicing Jew and writes disturbing horror stories. Michaelbrent Collings is a devout Morman and writes gory thrillers. Regina Saint Claire is a practicing Catholic and writes steamy and often brutal Gothic stories.
