  Pam Williams is on tour for her new book, A to Z Devotions for Writers! Today, I get to feature my dear friend and showcase her wonderful book. We'll start off with asking Pam a few questions.

      Dawn:  What gave you the idea to do A to Z Devotions for Writers?
Pam: In April of 2011, I participated in Lee Jackson’s A to Z Blogging Challenge. God led me to write meditations for the challenge. I discovered that many of them spoke to the hearts of writers. A year later, God nudged me to bind them together in a book, and A to Z Devotions for Writers took shape.

      Dawn:  The cover is gorgeous, who designed it?
Pam: A talented artist named Lily Mackay created the beautiful inkwell which I found in an Internet search. When I contacted Lily, she then gave permission for a team of graphic designers at CrossLink Publishing to feature her beautiful inkwell on the cover.

      Dawn:  Why write devotions for writers?
Pam: Typically, believers turn to God’s Word to discover direction through the Scriptures, draw peace from conversations with Jesus, and to be encouraged by the words and experiences of others. Devotional books offer all of these elements, usually tailored to a specific reader—mothers, golfers, teens, cat lovers, couples, etc. In 2010, when I started a writers’ inspiration and critique group, I searched bookstores, workshops, and the Internet for devotionals aimed at writers that I could use to open our meetings. The choices were few. Out of necessity, I began writing devotionals to open our writers’ Bible study.

Dawn: In the “Y is for Yearn” devotion you talk about creating writing goals based on what you yearn to write. What do you yearn to write? What are some of your future writing goals?
Pam: Writing devotionals is my passion. I love to share what Jesus has taught me in the little, everyday things. I currently have the bare bones of a new book entitled Backyard Devotions from A to Z. I am excited about this book because it will speak to the hearts of a much wider audience. I also plan to concentrate on submitting articles to magazines—something I had to put on the back burner while I worked on the A to Z Devotions for Writers book.

Read my book review of A to Z Devotions for Writers. I gave it 5 of 5 stars!

A to Z Devotions for Writers can be purchased on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or at CrossLink Publishing.
