Back in April, I released my memoir... My Other Left - a wicked pissah memoir on finding your way (pissah is a good thing for those who are scratching their heads). It’s a wee one... 137 pages, but as I like to say it’s a whole lot of hope, love and encouragement (and humor) packed in there.

This journey has been rewarding in so many ways. It’s remarkable, the people I have met along the way willing to support and pay it forward. -sigh-

Nice to meet you....and thank you.

Thank you Lore. I continue to be blessed by your writing and the kindness that shines through it. I wrote a book 2 years ago for college-aged girls. Here's the info!

I love this and am grateful for an opportunity to share about my book - thank you! I am an author, speaker and coach passionate about helping women elevate their life and thrive as they expand their experience with Jesus! I launched my book Princess in Progress: Pursuing and Proclaiming Your Identity in Christ in April of this year. It's a 30-Day Devotional on finding and securing your identity in Christ based on the journey I took in my own life. It includes 30 devotions with journal prompts, supporting scriptures, Biblical affirmations, and a written out prayer for each day. Thanks again for your support!

It is available on Amazon here - https://www.amazon.com/Princess-Progress-Pursuing-Proclaiming-Identity/dp/B0BXMV7G5Q/ref=sr_1_1?crid=308INHJ492SB&keywords=princess+in+progress+by+cyndi+staudt&qid=1694626777&sprefix=princess+in+progress%2Caps%2C120&sr=8-1

Wow Lore, thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! I am a fellow author and blogger and have been following your writing for YEARS never once expecting this! I actually see that a couple of my books are on bookstore.org and had NO IDEA of it's existence! So, this is a double thank you for getting me hip so I can find out more. I would love for you to feature my latest book "When Love Wins" in you bookshop. When Love Wins is a coming of age story of two young Black, female women who learn the value of sisterhood and the power of God's love while navigating grief, mental health challenges, childhood trauma and more. It can be purchased directly at https://whenlovewins.love/. It's also available at https://bookshop.org/p/books/when-love-wins-nicole-d-miller/19596799?ean=9781736942932 Thank you again!!!

Thanks so much for this, Lore! I've written two books, Rosefire, a young adult fantasy novel, and The King's Messenger, a middle-grade chapter book. Both have been published by Bandersnatch Books, which exists in part because you once asked me the question, "what do *you* want to do?" and starting a publishing company was part of that answer. I'm not quite sure how bookshop.org works, but if you can link to our website store, great! https://www.bandersnatchbooks.com/store

What a generous offer, and what an abundant outpouring of books! I've lurked on your socials/blog and now Substack for some time now and really appreciate your work. I've been in Christian publishing almost my whole career 😬😍😭🙏🏻 and spend time on both sides of the editor's desk, mostly as an editor and occasionally an author of children's books. My two books still in print are linked below. Making the most recent one wiped me out so hard I may never write again, but I'm so proud of it.

So thankful for this opportunity!

Glimpses of Love: The Most Excellent Way of Imperfection https://a.co/d/51B5F64

Whether you struggle with perfectionism or are just tired of feeling like a failure when it comes to love, Glimpses of Love helps make space for reimagined thoughts about imperfect love, encouraging you to have fresh eyes to see all that might have been there all along that just hadn't been noticed before...like heart-shaped leaves on the ground suddenly noticed after a prayer.

Lore, I am still trying to wrap my mind around Substack vs Other Things and how to have a teaching job but also write and I’m just so grateful for your model of presence and care. This generosity is one more example.

I’d love for my book to be included: Redeeming Vision: a Christian Guide to Looking at and Learning from Art https://bakeracademic.com/p/Redeeming-Vision-Elissa-Yukiko-Weichbrodt/466167
