What’s Going on in 2016?

 

2016 brought with it successes and bad news from the Association of American Publisher regarding pubishing. Sales in the first half of 1016 were 5.37 billion dollars.

  • Adult books down by 2.8 %.
  • Children and YA books up by 0.9 %.
  • Religions books up by 10.4 %.
  • Ebooks were down by 20 %.
  • Paperback books grew by 8.8%
  • Audio downloads grew by 32.3 %.

Surprises to me were religious books gains over first six month of 2015. Need to investigate what genres are growing in religion book markets. Looks like I will definitely using CreateSpace to produce paperback book copies of my ebook. Ebook decline continues so authors should focus on finding niches that sells.

What’s up with audio downloads? That’s a big jump! See more date at http://publishers.org/

RELIGIOUS SAYINGS

Young Wisdom

All of us have points in our lives when words do make sense in our soul as well as our mind. Here are some of the words we might encounter.  Here are some sayings I’ve encountered.

As much as you you want to plan your life, it has a way of surprising you with unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned. That’s what you call God’s will.

Knowing the Bible is one thing. Knowing the author is another.

When life gets too hard to stand kneel in prayer.

Prayer is the key to the door to heaven. Faith is the power to put it in the lock and turn it.

Faith is like Wi-Fi, it is invisible but has the power to connect you to what you need.

We need to teach our daughters the difference between:

A man who flatters her and a man who compliments her.

A man who spends money on her and a man who invests in her.

A man who views her as property and a man who views her properly.

A man who lusts after her and a man who loves her.

A man who believes he is God’s gift to women and a man who remembers a woman was God’s gift to man.

And then teach our sons to be that kind of man.

Faith is when God pushes you to the very edge but you believe one of two things will happen. Either He’ll catch you or teach you to fly!

Sometimes God allows us to cry because tears clear our eyes so we can see clearly the good things ahead.

God doesn’t want us full of ourselves, just full of HIM.
