More than 200 people attended The Christian Book Readers Weekend, hosted by Chosen Pen Publishing at New Life Bible Church in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Chosen Pen was launched by Dr. Norma McLauchlin to create a platform for independent Christian authors. “If you’re writing, God has given you a story,” she told attendees. “It’s not for you, it’s for someone else, so therefore it is your ministry and it is your God-given job to get that word out.”
