In December 2012, I was praying about what our word of the year would be from the Lord, and He gave me the word JOY. I wasn't sure how that would unfold during the year, but as we began plotting and exploring ideas for the summer, Magnificent Hope jumped to the forefront again, and told us about her SISTER!! She was sure tight-lipped about her last year, but today, I'd like to introduce you to RADIANT JOY.
Isn't she lovely? And yes, she is expecting! Radiant Joy is expectant of JOY, of
She will become our mascot for Pix-N-Pens, and she's already planning a fun summer for all of us.
Today, she's here to ask for your help! Write Integrity and Pix-N-Pens want to
send five of our authors to the world's largest trade show for Christian books. ICRS gives us an opportunity to put our books in front of book buyers and book store owners - an opportunity that's not easy or affordable for most small publishers. So we're having a fundraiser.
One of the rewards we're offering in exchange for your donation to our Faithfunder campaign is fun merchandise featuring Magnificent Hope and Radiant Joy (Radiant Joy's merchandise is still being designed, but we've got some examples below with Magnificent Hope.) For a $20 donation, you'll receive a beautiful, sturdy mug, a fun and colorful mousepad, and some other goodies featuring these delightful sisters. And you'll provide some magnificent hope and radiant joy for five authors and their publisher.
We're also offering critiques, Skype sessions with authors for book clubs and writing groups, book bundles (print or digital packages available), individual books (including new releases for only $5 digital, $10 print!), lunch with the publisher in St. Louis during ICRS or the Atlanta area all summer long. One of our authors' favorite rewards is a dinner in St. Louis, with all five authors, the publisher, and up to 4 contributors (and their guests). It promises to be a fun-filled evening!
Can you help us get there?
