These days, publishers tend not to touch a manuscript unless the author has what they call a “platform.” What that really means is a mailing list, evidence there is a community of people who might be interested in reading the book once it is published.

Since I do have a couple of manuscripts I would be very grateful to have published, I am hoping to develop a mailing list to show there is a community, a “platform,” who might be willing to read it.

But nowadays, the day of spam and unwanted emails, the last thing most of us want to do is add our email to one more mailing list!

So, I have developed an exclusive line of over forty booklets on women in the Bible. Each booklet includes a

  • Transcript from the YouTube presentation
  • Bibliography of the commentaries and papers written on these women
  • Fifteen-question Bible study based on the three-step Bible study method

As a thank you to you for helping me build this “platform,” I am giving these booklets away, one a month. Here are the first three:

Book One: Prophet, Poet, Judge

“Prophet, Poet, Judge” is on Deborah, and there are a few surprises in her story.

Book Two: Minister of the Word

“Minister of the Word” is on Phoebe, and I was astonished by what I discovered about how Paul described her.

Book Three: Disciple Delivered from Death

“Disciple Delivered from Death” is on Tabitha, also known as Dorcas. Her story prefigures the Gospel being opened to all.

Once you become part of the mailing list, you will keep receiving the booklets for free, one a month. In fact, the newsletter attached to the mailing list will come out once a month with the new booklet, and links to the booklets that have come out so far, so no matter when you join the mailing list, you can get the full set of forty.

If a publisher is willing to publish one of my manuscripts, I will let you know through the newsletter, with a coupon for the book at publisher’s price.

If you are willing to help me, then the next time you enter this website and the popup shows up, please add your name and email address. You will receive a thank you email from me with the link to the first booklet.

The other way is to email me at and I will personally send you the link.

Thank you so much for reading this. I appreciate you. Grace and Peace, Joanne
