I hope that you all are doing well. We have two contest submission periods ending this week and we will get to those in a moment, but first I wanted to share a short life update that you might find interesting. As of July of this year, I was hired as the Librarian at the New Castle Christian Academy. I am beyond excited! Don't worry this should not directly affect my work at Clean Fiction at all, but I had a request to ask of the Clean Fiction Community. The school goes from Pre-K 3 - 8th grade and being a Christian school I have the freedom to fill the shelves with as much Christ-honoring content as I can. If you have a book that you think would be perfect for our library, please send me an email at email@example.com. My plan is to make an Amazon Wish List with as many books as I think would be appropriate for the students for those who would like to support the library to use. You can of course donate a hard copy of your book, but that is not necessary. If I could be so bold, I would also like to ask the Clean Fiction Community for prayers as I add another level to the crazy in my life. God is good and I am so thankful for His blessings, but this change is going to be no piece of cake. Thanks.
