'Through the works and person of C. S. Lewis, Wiggins depicts a parallel of self-discovery. No angst or self-pity here. He describes coming to Christ much like Lewis did, asking “Why do we accept how we are raised? How do we know truth for ourselves in this world we live in?” In a wholly personable style, Wiggins writes, “Well, those spectacles cracked when I started to ask questions and discovered that I had no idea why I believed what I believed.”' - Christine Norvell

Hear what Douglas Gresham, stepson of C. S. Lewis and author of Lenten Lands: My Childhood with Joy Davidman and C.S. Lewis, has to say about Surprised by Agape in this short video

Cuentos del Cañón is a series of a dozen stories set in or near the same canyon that is home to Carmen’s first novel El Hermano. We feel the palpable agony of the parents of an infant victim of the evil eye, the terror of the victims of realistic nightmares, and the wonder of a youth shoved to safety by his cousin who is actually in France. The Devil appears in the middle of a dance, an entire village disappears, Saint Death teaches humans life lessons, and a serpent that nightmares are made of exists in a corner of Sangre de Cristos — these are a few of the stories you’ll find in this collection by award-winning story-teller, Carmen Baca.

Laugh; cry; feel; think: Bonn is one of the exceptional writers who can make you do all of those at once, whose writing style makes it difficult at times to breathe because you’re transported and they don’t breathe the same air in that story. 

If there is a cutting edge of storytelling, Bonn is ahead of it, sharpening the blade.


From flash fiction tales intended to shock and amuse, to glorious literary character explorations to be relished; from science fiction and fantasy to humour and children’s literature, here are the cutting edges of today’s short fiction from new and established authors all over the world.

'I am the author of the best-selling book How Stories Really Work: Exploring the Physics of Fiction.

'Never rated less than five stars in over three years, this unique book gives you the reasons WHY all the other writing advice works (when it does) and tells you the secrets used by master authors throughout history.'


-Grant P. Hudson

'I'm reading through "How Stories Really Work." I've studied writing books for years but I've never seen anything like this! This book is REVOLUTIONARY. Everything is made so simple and precise that other methods of writing seem clumsy by comparison. It's not just a way of writing, but a way of seeing.'

-A. P. (Author)

With plays that have been produced in several states in the U.S. and a 2017 Pushcart Prize nomination, plus a large social media following as a short story writer, Steve Carr is one of the most qualified people on the planet to give other writers practical advice on the ins and outs of getting a short story published. 


This guidebook reveals his organising system and his methodology for approaching publishers, and is full of top tips to get your work in print. It’s a must-have for any aspiring short story writer.

Clarendon House has what the majority of other publishers lack; the personal touch. Grant Hudson draws people into his cosy library (also known as the Inner Circle Writers' Group), sits them down and works his magic. Many new writers lack confidence in their ability, so Grant fine tunes their perspective, boosts their morale and sets them up to win. I have been humbled by his untiring efforts to help us all. We are his people. He is our mentor, our eccentric English professor and our much valued friend.

D. Taylor, Author

As I was scrolling fb, and seeing all these ads from people claiming to help authors do this and do that, I thought to myself, Grant Hudson is the genuine mentor. Thanks for your solid advice.

P. O'Neil, Author

Grant is the model mentor for this new age of writing.

The world is better with all this beautiful work seen at last.

Our little ICWG family is certainly a wonderful group full of kindness and encouragement. It's wonderful to see the growth of so many writers from the help and guidance they've received from this group alone.

 The Inner Circle Writers' Group is the social arm of Clarendon House Publications.

ProWritingAid recently listed us as one of the best groups for writers on Facebook:
'Everyone loves Grant, the founder of The Inner Circle Writers' Group, almost as much as they love the warm, supportive environment that always stays professional and on-topic. The members are encouraging, and the moderators keep abusive non-writers to a minimum. Several professional writers call The Inner Circle Writers’ Group "home." Join the group and get ready for lots of interaction and engagement in a friendly, family atmosphere. Everyone shares and celebrates each other’s successes, and many feel spurred to become and do better.' 
This group is for writers interested in the craft and practice of writing and everything connected with that. Members are entitled to exclusive services from Clarendon House and are offered multiple submission opportunities.

It's completely free and fun.
