You Asked Me!

Posted by Ann-Margret on April 11, 2014 at 8:50 am| Leave a Comment

Every so often, someone will ask me about how I got started as a writer, how they can get published or some other question related to writing. Since some of the same questions come up from time to time, I thought I’d start putting my answers all in one place so that I could later refer people to them.

Last week I invited fans of my Facebook Page to ask me anything and I got five questions right away. The answer to the first one is on my “Piece of Mind” blog right here: You Asked Me. Check it out! Stay tuned for more questions and please go ahead and send me any questions you have. You can either leave them in the comments here, at my other blog or on Facebook.

Edited on May 14: And here’s a link to the fifth and final post in the series, where I share tips on being a successful writer: You Asked Me! #5

New blog!

This page is where I’ll continue posting news and updates specifically about my books and writing projects. However, I thought it would be a good idea to have a “regular” blog that I actually write…a place to share my thoughts and reflections.

I hope you’ll check it out and follow me! Here’s the link: http://annhovsepian.wordpress.com/

First-place honour at EPA

Posted by Ann-Margret on May 4, 2013 at 8:34 am| Leave a Comment

On Thursday, May 2, I had the honour of accepting a first-place award during the Evangelical Press Association’s annual Higher Goals awards ceremony in Nashville. My article in the May 2012 issue of Christianity Today, namely Quebec: Canada’s Prodigal Province, took first place in the Freelance Article category.

This piece was truly a labour of love and possibly my most challenging assignment since I started freelancing nearly 17 years ago, so receiving this award was quite meaningful.

I made some great connections here in Nashville so I look forward to seeing what writing opportunities lie around the bend.

Have a great day!

Since this blog is mainly for announcing major news about my books and other projects, it’s not necessarily the best way for me to communicate on a personal level with my readers. So I invite you to visit and “like” my newly launched Facebook author page (www.facebook.com/ann.hovsepian.author). Check it regularly for updates, fun posts and inspiration thoughts.

Hope to see you there soon! And while I’m here, let me wish you all a very blessed weekend as we remember and celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection. Hallelujah!

Verdades Para Meninas

Posted by Ann-Margret on February 21, 2013 at 6:48 pm| Leave a Comment

I never imagined I would see the day when one of my books would published into a foreign language so it was a wonderful surprise this past week to discover that Truth & Dare – One Year of Dynamic Devotions for Girls has been translated into Portuguese and is now available on a few Brazilian websites. Here’s one example.

What a blessing to have an opportunity to reach Portuguese-speaking tween girls with God’s Word!

Thank you all for your continued prayers about this special ministry.

P.S. In other news, I’m three weeks from deadline for submitting the manuscript for the next Truth & Dare book, which is projected to be released in the fall of 2014. Stay tuned for further news on that!

Happy New Year!

January 1 is always a great time to thank God for all His past blessings… as well as all the blessings in store for us. To me, true faith is thanking God before He answers my prayers, and not only after.

I wish you all the very best for 2013! Thank you for all the wonderful support and feedback you’ve sent my way, especially since the release of Truth & Dare. The Facebook page (check it out here) now has more than 200 “likes” and I hope to see that number continue to grow. Lately I’ve been posting inspirational thoughts (rather than simply news about the book), so go ahead and “like” the page, even if you don’t have a copy of the book. Just come and hang out with us! 😀

Your continued prayers are appreciated as the first couple of months of this year will be intensely focused on writing my next book, the sequel (so to speak) to Truth & Dare, tentatively titled Double Dare. Stay tuned for further updates!

Blessings to you and your loved ones,

Ann-Margret

So today was the day I was to choose a name from among all those who entered the latest giveaway… and we’ve got our winner!

Angel Pendleton was the sixth person out of 13 to enter the giveaway and her name came up in a random draw. At Angel’s choice, I will send a copy of Designer Genes signed to her daughter Grace. Woohoo! Congratulations, Angel and Grace (what great names, by the way). 😀

Thanks to everyone else who participated. If you’d still like to get a copy of one of my books, check out the buying options on the “Books” page of my website.

You can see photos of the very old-fashioned way I selected the winner here, in the Designer Genes Facebook photo album. (Please “like” the page after you visit it!)
