Spiritual Writing: From Inspiration to Publication

Spiritual Writing: From Inspiration to Publication - Deborah Levine Herman Sometimes when I read a book I think to myself, "If only I'd read this book years ago!" This book was a book I needed to read at the beginning of my writing journey which, as the author points out, so often coincides with a personal spiritual journey. Much of what the book contains I had learned the hard way...through personal experience. But it felt good to have my personal writing experiences validated by an external voice that speaks with wisdom and knowledge.

Another area where the book would have been more useful a few years ago was the section on publishing - so many rapid and recent changes in the publishing industry made this section appear a bit dated.

In addition, the focus of the book was more on non-fiction spiritual writing, and my interest lies in spiritual fiction writing. However, this book still contains much information that's extremely useful for anyone who is just starting out on their journey as a spiritual writer of either fiction or non-fiction books.

I'm glad I read it as it contains solid advice from both a spiritual and a writing point of view.
