Have you found a kindred spirit in your writing?
When we pitch manuscripts to agents or editors, we often compare our words to other books. To do this, I've sought out like-minded writers. When I pitched Divine Dining, I compared it to “Food for Thought” by Elizabeth L., “Daily Affirmations for the Compulsive Eater by Susan Ward, and “Food for the Hungry Heart” by Cynthia Rowland McClure.
If you've purchased and enjoyed Divine Dining, then I want to recommend another book to you.
The pages I've read so far seem to give more practical helps than spiritual applications, while Divine Dining gives more Biblical insights.
For instance, here's a excerpt from today's "diet nugget."
Remember, your stomach is not the boss of you, but if it starts growling at you, maybe you just need to take it out for a drink. A drink of water, that is. Life is short-drink up!
As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.
If you've spent a lifetime struggling with your weight, Diet Nuggets and Wisdom Appetizers would make a helpful addition to your library. That is, after you've purchased and read Divine Dining, of course.
Yes, I have found a kindred spirit on devotions for dieters. I can't wait to read Kurlin's fiction. I'll keep you posted.
