Visit the new Bible Prophecies Fulfilled blog

Thanks to Morguefile.com
and PicMonkey.com
I started a new blog called Bible Prophecies Fulfilled so I could write more on the topic of my "Prophecies Fulfilled" series of books, and it has kept me so busy I haven't had time to post a note about it here!

I've wanted to start a blog on this topic for a long time, but just hesitated to take the plunge. Do I really need another blog to keep up with?

But I decided to do it. There's a lot going on in our world, and lot of interesting, possibly prophecy-fulfilling events coming in our near future--such as the first of four total lunar eclipses falling on major Jewish Feast days coming April 15th. It simply seemed too important to let it go.

So I started the blog with a Countdown to Easter. That's what that picture up there is about--you'll see that number count down through all the posts through Lent to Easter. I'm posting each day of Lent, which is every day except Sundays, about one prophecy that was fulfilled in the death and resurrection of Jesus. Seeing what God has predicted in the past, then seeing how each prophecy was perfectly fulfilled, gives us confidence that God knows exactly what's happening on the earth and is in complete control. Seeing these past prophecies fulfilled gives us stronger faith for our current times as well as our future. And glimpsing how prophecies were fulfilled in the past ignites our desire to know what prophecies have yet to be fulfilled (which we'll begin looking at after Easter) and gives us solid belief they will indeed be fulfilled.

I hope you'll stop by and enjoy the new blog at BiblePropheciesFulfilled.blogspot.com and let it help you prepare your heart for Easter. And will you please spread the word and invite your friends to join us on this journey? Someone you know wishes they knew this information.

If you've noticed things going on in the world and wondered what it all means, you won't want to miss this blog. What's going on in the world and what it means is exactly what we're going to be talking about there.

Please notice if you want to receive each post via e-mail, there's a sign up box in the upper right of www.BiblePropheciesFulfilled.blogspot.com.

Here is a list of the posts that have gone up so far with links to each post:
I'll look forward to having you on this interesting journey with me. Please leave me a note on the Bible Prophecies Fulfilled blog so I'll know you're with me. And please use the share buttons below this post and on the other blog to share with your contacts. Thanks!

President's Day sale! Dear America book


written after September 11, 2001, Dianne writes about God, Islam, the Muslims, and going on with Jesus Christ
Dear America
A Letter of Comfort and Hope
to a Grieving Nation
Starting tomorrow, Wednesday February 12th, the Kindle edition of my first book, Dear America, will go on sale for one week to celebrate President's Day.

In the United States, we celebrate President's Day on Monday, February 17, 2014, to commemorate the birthdays of both George Washington, the first president of the United States, whose actual birthday is February 22nd, and Abraham Lincoln, who signed the document that ended slavery in the United States, whose actual birthday is February 12th.

On this patriotic day, I'm celebrating by offering Dear America: A Letter of Comfort and Hope to a Grieving Nation at a discounted price.

I wrote Dear America in the days and first few weeks following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The book was published in print by Ampelos Press six months later on March 11, 2002. The Kindle edition released on its tenth anniversary, in 2012.

While the events of September 11th inspired the book, the information in it is timeless. In Dear America, you'll find:

  • 10 Things I've Learned About Grief: practical thoughts and information to help you or a friend through the loss of a loved one.
  • An intriguing Q & A section answering such questions as "Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God?" and "How can we know if Christianity is true?"
  • Ten practical tips to help beginners start reading and understanding the Bible.
  • A fascinating presentation of the Bible in only five acts!


Dear America will be on sale:

  • Tuesday, February 12, through Saturday, February 15, for only $ .99!
  • Then on Sunday, February 16, through Tuesday, February 18, for $1.99.


Don't have a Kindle? No problem. Your computer, tablet, or phone can be your Kindle reader with a download of a free app from Amazon. Find links to Kindle apps here.

I hope you'll grab your copy of Dear America this week and share this sale info with a friend who may also benefit from it. This small book has been called "inspiring," "practical," and "uplifting." If you find it so, please leave a note as a review on Amazon to let others know. Thank you.

Please use the Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Pinterest buttons below to share. You never know who may need this book ... today. Thank you.

And my God bless America.

New "How to Get Published by Magazines & Book Publishers" E-Book Released

How to Get Published by
Magazine and Book Publishers
e-book
I'm very pleased to announce the first title in my new "Getting Published" E-Book series has released and is now available!


You will find it exclusively for Kindle at Amazon.com.

Don't have a Kindle? No problem. Your computer, tablet, or phone can become a Kindle reader if you download the free app from Amazon. You can find links to do that here: No Kindle? No problem!

If you've been to a writer's conference where I attended or was on faculty, you may have seen my "Help for Writers" series of printed pamphlets. I created that series of five pamphlets back in 2003 and they have proved quite popular at writer's conferences. They sell for $3.95 each.

But while they've been available by ordering from me, getting the word out about them as well as taking and filling orders has been cumbersome. Now I'm re-releasing them as e-books to make them far more easily available to a much wider audience. So if you haven't seen the pamphlets, now is your chance to easily get the same material -- only revised and updated, with bonus content added -- as an e-book.

This first e-book is a revised and updated version of my pamphlet, "The Basics for Beginners: How to Find Markets, Submit your Manuscripts, and Keep Track of it All." I've also added more content from my one-day seminar, "Writing for Publication: How to Find Markets and Submit Your Work." 

This new e-book includes three Bonus Articles not included in the original pamphlet:

  • How to Study the Market
  • Book Manuscript Submissions with the basics for both Fiction and nonfiction book proposals
  • Which Rights Do I Sell When?

Besides creating e-books from each of the five "Help for Writers" pamphlets, I'm also developing additional e-books from workshops I've taught, articles I've written, columns from my former newsletter for writers, and blog posts from my "Butts About Writing" blog at www.ButtsAboutWriting.blogspot.com.

Topics from the "Help for Writers" pamphlets include how to write query letters and how to re-sell your magazine articles as reprints.

Topics from workshops will include my popular "10 Tools for Marketing Your Book," getting more articles out the door as a freelance writer, beginning screenwriting, how to shape your story to make a great screenplay, and more.

I hope these topics interest you! Whenever I have a new e-book ready to go, I'll announce it here. So please stop back by often. Or follow me on Twitter to catch announcements. Find me at @DianneEButts and @BAboutWriting.

If you or someone you know has always wanted to write to get published in magazines or wanted to write a book and get it published, this first e-book will tell you what you need to know to get started. Please let your wanna-be writer friends know! And be one of the first to get it by getting your own copy now!


If you find this e-book valuable, please leave a comment below to let us know. And if possible, please leave a review or rating on Amazon so others will know you found it worthwhile and helpful. Thank you so very much.

Deliver Me Book on sale for Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

the book Deliver Me, Hope, Help, & Healing through True Stories of Unplanned Pregnancy
Deliver Me
Hope, Help, and Healing through
True Stories of Unplanned Pregnancy
Sunday, January 19, 2014, is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Haven't heard of it? Let me explain.

On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court handed down its decision on Roe vs. Wade which legalized abortion on demand in the United States. Since then it is estimated by the National Right to Life that more than 55 million human lives have been lost to abortion in the United States in the past 41 years. That's a staggering number.

But what if we doubled that number? I ask because for every one of those human children who have been lost to abortion there is also a Mom. Yes, there are fewer Moms who have lost a child to abortion than there are abortions--we don't know exactly how many fewer--because statistics show many women who have one abortion have more than one.

So if we're attempting to count the number of people touched by abortion, that number probably wouldn't be exactly double the number of abortions.

But then let's not forget the Dads. For every abortion there is also a Dad.

I believe (and research shows) that people--both women and men--are wounded by abortion. This means there are a lot of "walking wounded" in our society.

Why do I bring all this up? Because these are the very people the book Deliver Me is for.

Just this morning I saw a new book by a well-known author titled God is Not Mad at You. I thought, "What a great title for a book." Then I thought, "What a great topic for a book!"

So many people today need to hear that message: God is not mad at you! God loves you! And yes, He can love you even when you've done things you now regret.

This is also the message of Deliver Me. If you, or someone you know, needs delivered from the pain of the past or the chains of regret, Deliver Me will show you true story after story of women and men who have found freedom from the haunting stories of their pasts. They have found forgiveness. They have discovered God is not mad at them, even though they thought He was...sometimes for years or even decades. It's never too late to discover your healing.

To commemorate Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, Deliver Me is on sale this week exclusively on Amazon's Kindle. (Don't have a Kindle? No problem. Your device can become a Kindle reader.)

The schedule for the sale of Deliver Me: Hope, Help, and Healing through True Stories of Unplanned Pregnancy is here: 
  • Monday January 13 through Wednesday January 15, 2014:          $ .99
  • Thursday January 16 through Friday January 17, 2014:                $1.99
  • Saturday January 18:                                                                   $2.99
  • Sunday, Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, January 19:                    $3.99

Deliver Me will also be on sale in the United Kingdom discounted at one price throughout the whole week.

At the end of Sunday, the Kindle version of Deliver Me will return to its usual price of $4.99, so grab your copy during the sale.
Deliver Me won this award
in 2012

Someone you know needs this book. Please let them know about it during the sale days. You can do so by using the share button below and the Tweetables in this message. If you find this book valuable, you can also let others know that by leaving a brief review on Amazon.

Thank you for taking the time to stop and consider the meaning of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. There are so many walking among us who are suffering in silence because of a past abortion, giving a child for adoption, or other various results of an unplanned pregnancy. It's time to discover there really can be healing. The more than 50 true stories in this book not only show you it's possible, they show you how.

It's time. Discover your healing.
