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 the Perdido Key Novels, Lori writes about alcoholism and premarital 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?

New Online Publication

Lori O’Gara has been writing on Medium.com for about a year. Medium is an online group of publications and magazines that you can read for a small subscription fee of $5 bucks a month. For about what you pay for a cup of coffee at that big famous coffee place, you can read about any subject that interests you. Yes, anything. Art, science, politics, video games, cooking, you name it, you can find a publication or a writer who specializes on that topic.

The great thing about medium is that you, the reader, can applaud the articles you enjoy reading. The applause, or claps, convert into money for the writer. The reader rewards writers directly. Claps encourage writers to keep writing. More writing equals more quality articles for publications that readers want. Happy readers and happy writers.

For Lori, she has no passions greater than her love of family, writing and God. She writes about all three. So far she has 130 articles on Medium. Even two published in an investment publication called Data Driven Investor. If you ask her what her favorite topic to write about is she will tell you she has no favorite, rather she has a mission that runs like a thread through all her work, “My goal is to show people that there is nothing more important than love and human decency. Love in investment strategy? Yes. Love in pursuing success? Yes. I was called by God to write, so in everything I write there is some peek into love and respect that is expected of decent humans.”

Along this line of thought, Lori has created her first online publication hosted on Medium. Her magazine is called, No B.S. Christianity. “I have taken some of my favorite articles that fit the theme of real life, no judgement, authentic Christianity and moved them to this platform.” Lori explained. “I do not ever push my religion onto people, rather I live it out through my words. I do not judge others by their lifestyle or choices. Frankly, I respect everyone and I encourage others to do to the same.”

To explore the possibility that Christianity is more than the close minded, sometimes bigoted religion you have seen portrayed in the media, check out Lori’s short book, Believe or you can read Lori’s statement of belief here.

To read unlimited articles on Medium and subscribe to No B.S. Christianity join medium or read a few articles a month for free.

Get Your Medieval On

Our new book, The Travelers’ Song is not set in medieval times; however, in our story this world, yes Earth, four thousand years from now life is eerily similar to the Dark Ages. Electricity is sparse, as is plumbing and other modern conveniences. Technology is not embraced like it is now because technology brought on the extinction of humans. Well almost. About a third of humans survived. But, I digress. 

Where was I? Oh, yes, medieval times. 

We will be signing books at The Gulf Coast Renaissance Faire & Pirate Festival, March 2-3. 

So come see the live Entertainment and a Real Jousting tournament, Live Shows, Medieval Games of Skill, Historic learning demonstrations and streets scattered with Noble Knights, Goddess Princesses, Dragon Slayers, Mighty Kings, Wizards, and many more Medieval Characters. 

AND….meet us, The O’Gara Clan. 

Follow us on Facebook to learn more!

NECROMANCER’S SONG COMPENDIUM BOOKS

Now available two compendium books for the Necromancer’s Song series.

The Two is placed in the current century. Love is a connection in the spiritual realm. The Two are not human, rather mystical beings that have existed since the beginning of time and change form at the discretion of Fate. They both discover, in a tragic way, who they are and what they are to each other. Fate decides when it is time for the two beings to regenerate into new forms. Maybe they will be human this time, but that is up to Fate.

The Dark Beginning is set a few hundred years from now. The Dark Beginning is a fast paced look into the life of one of Thanatos Mooreclasian Magne’s recovered souls and a brief glimpse at the necromancer’s methods. Mooreclasian has seen the future. He sees the inevitable destruction of human kind and knows there is no stopping it. He begins to form a plan to prevent history from repeating again. He sets his plan in motion so when the dust settles on armageddon he will be ready. Technology dependant humans are losing control of society, civility and normalcy. Nicolas Maverick is one of those typical humans.
