Would you read it?

Publishers and readers alike have difficulty placing Lori O’Gara’s novels in one genre. She is a Christian writer who writes about subjects that other Christian writers often avoid. She has no problem tackling drug addiction, sex or other subjects that are often thought of as taboo for Christian writers. “The thing is sex and addiction are real life things that even Christians have to deal with.” she says “Why should we Christian writers be scared to write about it?”

Lori continues by explaining that even though the subjects are often avoided by Christians she will continue to write about real life issues. “We shouldn’t go through life with blinders on. We should face life and deal with it.”

In her first novel, We Will Get There, she writes about alcoholism and pre-marital sex. She does so in such a way that is tasteful, but realistic. She offers two sides of both issues in the way different characters deal with them.

What do you think? Should Christian authors avoid writing about certain sinful subjects?

We Will Get There has an ISBN

Publication for Lori’s first novel is getting closer every day. The book titled, We Will Get There has been assigned an ISBN number. The next step is getting a photographer hired for a book cover photo. She is looking for something that reflects the feel of Perdido Key and will stray true to the story.  Though Lori really likes the mocked cover, the photo is not print quality.

What do you think will make for a good cover for We Will Get There? Let us know in the comments.
