Just a short rant I promise. I have had to delete some links/info from my about me page and here is why….
I had a visit today from my church pastor and like I expected it was about… yep you guessed it, my writing. Apparently I am leading my readers down the wrong path and maybe am heading there myself. *cue the eye roll*
I won’t bore everyone with our conversation, but needless to say he wants me to stop writing gay/paranormal romance and I very nicely told him to get stuffed. I told him I would leave the church and move to another rather than stop writing. I also took great pleasure in telling him I had already found another church and they were willing to accept me and my work. The only reason I haven’t moved yet is I would be taking Alisha away from her friends and I don’t want to do that unless I have to – but I will.
As he requested I have deleted my association with the Hastings Street/Prayer Pastors from my blog (my about me page), as he feels they would not want to be connected to a writer of my genre. I will contact the leader of the Street/Prayer Pastors and if he agrees with this, I will ask him to take me off their rota and not to contact me again. I will also delete the post of my commissioning as a Prayer Pastor.
I WILL NOT CHANGE FOR ANYONE, ESPECIALLY HATERS AND BIGOTS.
Lastly I would like to thank my friends both old and new for all their support. I have learnt and continue to learn a lot about writing from all of you – and I have a lot of fun doing it.
