About Me

I have been an avid reader from as early as I can remember. Since becoming a Christian in my early 20s, my passion for reading led to specifically Christian fiction and this has developed into reviewing them on this blog. I love reading new author's novels or author's who have not had many reviews or exposure and giving them much needed encouragement where appropriate.

Reality Calling Christian Fiction Awards And Vetted Bookstore

I share my reviews with author and fellow reviewer, David Bergsland, of Reality Calling.


Reality Calling has as its vision to,

.....provide resources for Christian authors and readers, focusing on God’s call, the production of anointed materials, and vetted book reviews. You can see an example of that to the left [email David and he’ll send you a digital copy].


Technical support and mentoring for Christian self-publishers are found on our companion site: The Skilled Workman. There you will also find Writing In InDesign Producing Books, the book on the best method to self-publish on a professional level.

Our twin focus is first to encourage authors to participate in the final harvest as we prepare for the Coming of our King. It’s a glorious time to be alive and the Lord is looking for authors to help Him save all possible before the Wrath which is to come falls on the Earth.

Second, we also need and serve readers, and commenters, both to help us stay on track, and to share these resources with their friends and acquaintances. As authors and creators, we must stay attached to the Head, Jesus, as well as the readers we serve. For having a call from God necessarily means we serve those we are given. Our readers are our flock with whom we are called to minister. Jesus told us we will be held to account for everything we say [or write]. We take that seriously.

As a major part of this vision, I believe that the Kingdom needs more authors willing to lay it all on the line and share books containing the reality of the Christian life. We need books which go beyond mentions of church and vague faith statements. We really need books which share the reality of the power available to believers to bring love, joy, and healing to a world desperately needing hope. The darkness we see in the world today is but the birth pangs of the coming Kingdom on Earth. That’s our glorious hope. God, the Father of us all, is coming to live with us forever in an earth designed for us to share. Alleluia!

Evolving from this, David felt that authors needed to be encouraged and awarded for their efforts in writing according to what he outlined in the above paragraph. In conjunction with him, we have instigated the,


Reality Calling Christian Fiction Awards


There are three awards: (click on their title below for more information)








These awards are based on A Spiritual System for Rating Books written by David Bergsland (Click on the title for a free copy).










Reality Calling has opened a vetted Christian bookstore for speculative fiction, plus all the rest. 

Beginning slowly, we will continue to add books over time. The authors and books will be by invitation only—at the discretion of the Reality Calling editors. To start with, David Bergsland will be doing most of it. But his hope and prayer is that this will take on a life of its own—one the Lord can bless and use.

Some of the links to the Awards listed below will be also found in the Bookstore as they are added.
