We live in a world full of darkness. The most popular books of our time are more often dark themes. Death, violence, bitterness, hate, witchcraft, anger, and evil are the focus of the story, even if it is redeemed in the end. Even the Christian books are influenced by this. They think that tacking on a redeeming end makes up for all the darkness of the book.
Dear fellow authors, we need to be the light. Our books can deal with hard, or even evil things but the light should always be there. We need to make sure that the focus of our books remains on the light and what is good.
Let us encourage one another not to give in to popular demand and take a stand against the darkness. Are you with me?
