Voting is open to support independent authors and publishers vying for the prized Christian Indie Book Award for 2018! 

Nominated this year, my latest book, The Gatekeeper’s Key, is entered in the Devotionals genre. Inspiring chapters challenge you, through God’s Word and story metaphors from classic literature, to cross the thresholds of opportunity in your life, and step into your destiny and purpose in Christ.

The Book:

Walls may block you from your field of dreams, but every wall has a gate. At those gates, Gatekeepers wait to open wide the doors to fulfill your calling.

Learn how to possess the Key to releasing your gifts, and discover God’s best for your life.

Each riveting chapter expands upon an allegorical short story, detailing the moment Weaver in Wannabe Village comes face to face with her moment to confidently go forth, or shrink back in fear. Will she go? Will you go?

Probing journal prompts, scripture study assignments, and discussion questions, with a bonus appendix of how-to tips for in-depth word studies pack a lot of power between the pages of this book. CLICK HERE to enjoy audio abridged excerpts from four of the chapters, including the dramatized short story inspiration for the book, The Gatekeeper’s Key.

The Speaking Program:

In addition to the book, a dynamic speaking program designed to address a number of concepts raised in The Gatekeeper’s Key, encourages women, artists, and creative communicators. Writer, speaker Kathryn Ross inspires audiences to confidently step out of their comfort zones and grow into greater things, engaging their spheres of influence with the salt and light of God’s truth. Speaking programs include dramatized storytelling, visual displays, and a companion PowerPoint presentation to assist notetakers and visual learners.

But wait! There’s more!

Writers and creatives are enriched through network connections. I’m delighted to introduce you to some talented authors who are also nominated for a Christian Indie Book Award within their genre. Each of them have been gatekeepers in my life and writing career. Their advice, instruction, and mentoring relationship have been keys of opportunity to me, indispensible to my growth as a writer and a publisher.
