Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a Christian businessman living in Romania with my wife (who is from Romania). I had published 5 books before I moved here, and this year I published 2 more books, making it 7 books I have published so far. My wife has published 2 books, both of them this year.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My most recent book is “Thirty Days of Thanksgiving,” which I started a few years ago. I finally finished it recently. I see that thankfulness is less and less common, so I wanted to write a 30 day devotional on the topic and also put a study guide for small groups at the back of the book.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t write books continuously, usually. I might put off writing a certain book for a while until more thoughts come for it.
What are you working on now?
For a few years, I’ve been working on a book called “Double Glance.” It’s about a pastor in the End Times, when the world is against him and what he preaches.
I also am working on my first Romanian book about customer service. I plan to publish it within a year or so.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I use Facebook a lot, but the best method is word of mouth. It’s hard to promote books now that many people write, but it’s a fun challenge, and writing is something worth pursuing.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Keep at it. You may or may not publish the first book you write (I wrote many stories as a child and still write some stories, but I probably won’t publish them). You need to keep writing because that’s the way you improve your style.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Well, I’m writing the content now for a membership site my company is launching on November 1, 2017. The site is called Christian Language Learning Network (www.christianlanguagelearningnetwork.com). It’s not a book, but it’s content about how Christians should go about learning languages to fulfill the Great Commission.
