Vol. #20: Showcasing (3) More Awesome Gang Authors!!

Hello Everyone!

It’s time to keep warm and rest up on this Monday evening. I’m not looking forward to some rain this week. How is your week looking? Daylight Savings is coming back to us next month. I thank you for checking out my 16-year-old son John’s “Call To Action Marketing” business (hashtag #CTAMarketing). This post is intended to share even more work of some independent authors, such as myself, and earn some good karma in the process. Why not offer you a taste of a variety of authors with different content? Let me know if you have discovered a new author during this “Showcased Author Series”? My objective is to pick out different authors that offer a variety of media content. For the record, I know nothing about the author other than what is showcased in the author article that was shared, via Awesome Gang. Feel free to copy and paste and share this content on your blog, if you like. As an author, if you want to add more information, drop it down in the comment section below and I will edit and add at my earliest convenience. For now, I’m connecting with the authors in an effort to build my author network. Hopefully, they will follow me back on social media. I’m game to cross promote each other on social media as well. Just let me know or re-tweet one of my posts and I will automatically return the favor. I’m totally cool with many ways to help each other market each other. When you are a small content creator, it is important to help others out. Do you have any requests for a specific author or style of content? Let me know your various suggestions down the in the comment section below. Here are (3) showcased authors down below:

Showcased Author- 1.) Dr. Ben Pennington

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am an Atlanta-based award-winning Christian Education Ministry Director, Bible-teaching broadcaster, podcaster. I have served as the Christian Education Ministry Director at two metropolitan Atlanta area churches. Finding Jesus in Genesis: A Biblical Commentary on the Preincarnate Presence of Jesus Christ is the first book that I have written. My wife, Yvonne, and I have been married for over 41 years. We have three children and five grandchildren.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Finding Jesus in Genesis: A Biblical Commentary on the Preincarnate Presence of Jesus Christ is my first book. I was a member of my church’s missions ministry team. Our team would gather at a local shopping mall and witness Jesus Christ to the shoppers who passed by. A Jehovah’s Witness shopper quoted John 1:1 from his New World Translation Bible and told me that Jesus Christ was “a god” and was not divine. His translation of John 1:1 completely contradicted every bible I had read. That encounter started me on a journey to defend the gospel and deity of Jesus Christ.
I was the Christian Education Director at my metropolitan church. I developed the curriculum, taught a class on Christian Apologetics, and equipped our congregation with scriptures that defended the deity of Jesus Christ. Years later, I founded the Foundation Biblical Teaching Ministry and created a podcast and broadcast series titled Jesus in Genesis. In addition, I have used my podcast and broadcast series research to make my first book.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I am a morning person. My creativity is highest before noon each day.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
The Holy Bible has had a significant influence on my life. I am studying the writing of Moses in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.

What are you working on now?
As a new author, I am studying effective methods and strategies for book promotion.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My ministry website and my author profile on Amazon have helped promote my book.

Do you have any advice for new authors?
Trust God and believe in yourself and your God-given abilities.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Proverbs 3:5-6, Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge him, and he will direct your path.

What are you reading now?
I am reading the book of Exodus in the Holy Bible.

What’s next for you as a writer?
I want to master the art and science of book promotion.

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
I would bring The Holy Bible, The Works of Josephus, and The Autobiography of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Showcased Author- 2.) Kristin Davis

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am an Educator and a Language/Story Work Coach. I have been working in the Education field since 2005. I have been a teacher, and tutor, and a director. I founded Language Ninjas to empower parents and children by empowering their language. I now guides parents in upgrading their communication with their kids. One of the ways I am empowering kids and parents is through writing books. This is my first book of many more to come.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my latest book is Abracadabra I Know What to Do! I was inspired to write this story while I was teaching Jr. Kindergarten. I had moments where I would get frustrated with myself and my students. As I began to realize the impact of the words I was choosing to use affected how I felt, I began teaching my students as well. We took situations that felt overwhelming and turned them around into empowering moments by taking breaths and changing our words. As a teacher, I wanted a book I could read to my class to help reinforce what we were learning, so I decided to write a book.

Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I like to chew on the cap of my pen when writing and thinking.

What authors, or books have influenced you?
I was largely inspired by Peter H. Reynolds and Susan Verde who wrote books like I Am Yoga, I Am Peace, The Word Collector. I loved the simple, clear messages of their books.

What are you working on now?
I am currently working on the second book in the series of my Language Ninjas children’s books.

What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
When promoting my book, currently Facebook and Instagram are my best sites. I am learning about new and different ways to promote.

Do you have any advice for new authors?
My advice to new authors is to trust yourself. Write that book. And reach out to people to help support you and give you advice along the way.

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I have ever heard is to focus on my breath. Breath low and slow. The person that controls their breath controls the room.

What are you reading now?
Right now I am reading several books. I am currently re-reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I also am reading through How To Do the Work by Dr. Nicole LePera and Finally Thriving by Allison Pelot.

What’s next for you as a writer?
What’s next for me as a writer is to work on my next children’s book and build my children’s brand Language Ninjas.

If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
The books I would take with me to a desert island are:
It Didn’t Start With You by Mark Wolynn
The Surrender Experiment by Michael A. Singer
The Book Theif by Markus Zusak

I recently shared my latest short story that has been loaded up to my Construction Tales-Told By A Woman Kindle Vella Library on Amazon. This is short story #11 entitled, “Juggling Motherhood & Working With The Tools”. This short story covers my life as a widowed, single mother in the era when I juggled both motherhood and my career as a journeywoman electrician. I share the various challenges I faced and lessons learned along the way. The previous short story is entitled: #10: “Early Life Lessons & Characters To Meet As An Apprentice”. I decided to write about some life lessons such as guarding your personal information, managing nasty rumors, combating sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. Overall, the construction culture has improved dramatically over the past 25-years. Developing both a thick skin and a sharp tongue are key tools needed to survive various jobsite antics. I hope you learn something from this short story. There are more to come. These short stories are now also available as Verbally Disastrous podcast episodes.
