Greetings!
June is the month MANA has designated for writers focusing on fatherhood or mentoring. If you have a collection of short stories, collection of poems, novel, or non-fiction work focusing on these topics, you have until June 30 to submit your work. Are you ready?

WHERE IS ADAM?

Where is Adam is an excellent work guiding and challenging men to be fathers. Also, this work challenges any person who questions the importance of the man in the development of a man-child and woman-child. This work settles the controversy–Adam is necessary. And it provides the guidance and the reasons for the guidance.
Our Price: e-book = $9.95; bound = $14.95

MANA MONTH!

MANA designates a theme for every month. If you have the manuscript for this month’s theme–fatherhood and/or mentoring, submit the work. A non-refundable $250 down payment is all that is needed. This amount will go towards any plan you choose. By taking advantage of MANA Monday, 20% is discounted off the plan of choice. And you have a year to complete the payment on your plan; then, you will become a published author.
Our Price: down payment of $250

Do you know you have a work that is worthwhile? June 30 is the deadline for MANA Monday for June. Do not miss the deadline! Where Is Adam: Understanding the Father’s Role by Jeff Wheeler is definitely a must for those who seriously want to make an impact in the lives of young boys and girls. Certainly, you, also, have a work of the same importance and urgency for many to read. Share that work with many future readers! If you have the work, contact MANA now!

SPECIAL OFFER! Purchase a copy of Where Is Adam; receive an additional 10% off the cost of any self-publishing plan you choose, for a total of 30% off any plan’s cost!

When Your Call to Write Comes From God–By Rebecca Osaigbovo

A person’s commitment or desire to write may originate from one of several different places. It may come from within, a personal desire to put words on paper. It may come from other people telling you that you are a good writer, or it may originate from a divine source-God. Even if they didn’t know it at the time, all of the writers of the New and Old Testament had the hand of God on their lives as they wrote. 2 Peter 1:21 (KJV)* “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy” We now know, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God . . .” 2 Timothy 3:16

Although, we no longer have any writings that fit in the same category as the Scriptures. God still divinely calls people to write for His purposes. I personally have been a recipient of books that I know God had a hand in from the way God used the writings to speak to me. The most significant one was Rees Howell, Intercessor by Norman Grubb. This was the book I read in 1971 that propelled me to give my life unconditionally to God. It was a major turning point in my life.

I know God called me to write as well. At the time, I read a lot, I may have done some loose journaling and I had written a couple of little booklets a few years prior, but I wasn’t thinking about writing a book. But on December 15, 1989, at about 3 in the morning, I was lead to read Jeremiah, starting at chapter 29:11. I kept reading and when I got to Jeremiah 30:2, which says, “Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.”, I knew then that God had called me to write.

When I contemplated the phrase, “the things I have spoken unto you”, I immediately thought of a little speaking that I had done. I had spoken on prayer a few times, using 2 Chronicles 7:14. I had also been invited to speak at a family reunion in which I had done a talk on the roots of African Americans. Fortunately, these talks had been recorded. I had the tapes transcribed and they became the bases for Chosen Vessels: Women of color, keys to change.

Since that time I have written three other books and I also revised the first book ten years after its initial release. I know I will write at least one more book. I think five is the minimum number of books I will write. Writing has become a ministry and speaking has become a part of the ministry. Since I began my writing career, there have been a few things about writing that I have learned along the way:

● Know what it is that makes you certain God has called you.
● It’s a lot of work. Be prepared for long days and nights and lonely times.
● Just because God called you to write does not mean everything you put on paper is God given.
● Do what God called you to do, let others use their gifts to help you.
● You’ll need many others to help you on the way, including feedback on what you have written.
● Put on thick skin when you show it to others and make improvement as needed.
● Don’t listen to naysayers!
● If God has called you to it, nothing else matters, but to do it.
● Don’t focus on how many may buy or read your book. Write for the One who called you to write.
● Have it edited by two different editors, one who excels in content (organization, clarity, flow) and the other one who excels in grammar, punctuation issues.

*Unless otherwise specified, all scriptures are taken from the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible.
