Book Review: Love Letters to Writers (Andi Cumbo-Floyd)

November 19, 2017 — 5 Comments

You can’t get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me.

C. S. Lewis

My wife and kids will tell you that I’m a bit of a book hoarder.  I love getting books in the mail, and I love supporting other authors.  I especially love to promote these books when they have an impact on my life.

This week, Andi Cumbo-Floyd released her latest book, Love Letters to Writers.  And it’s just what I needed!

Despite the fact that I am getting ready to release my own book (December 5th – Rooftop Reflections – go to to find out more information), I have felt disappointment and discouragement regarding my own writing consistency.  I’ve allowed the busyness of life and other activities to take me away from my passion for day-to-day writing.

Andi’s new book provided the right encouragement and reminders I needed to take a new look at my writing and my approach to writing.

In Love Letters to Writers, you’ll find 52 chapters or letters designed to challenge and encourage your writing.  I love the way each letter spoke to me and brought me back to a place in my writing experience where I thrived.  If you are a writer who needs a little (or a lot) encouragement, this book is for you.

If you are not a writer but you are someone who is trying to develop a daily discipline in your life, I think you’ll find Love Letters to Writers helpful.

  • Jon, from one Christ-follower to another, I appreciated your review of Andi’s book. I too found it holds so much in the way of encouragement and support for all the critical times in not only the lives of writers but anyone following a pathway that requires discipline. I’ve signed up for your updates and look forward to learning more about “Stretched.”

    • Sherrey: Thanks so much for stopping by and being part of the community. I’d encourage you to stop over at and consider signing up for the launch team of my upcoming book (Rootop Reflections – Missional Thoughts of an Ordinary Guy in an Extraordinary Place). I’d love to have you on the team. When you sign up for the launch team, you get a free PDF copy of the book and you become part of the launch team FB group. In exchange, I simply ask you to write an honest review on Amazon (when the book comes out on December 5th) and share about the book with your network. I’d love to have you on the team!

      • Jon, I’d love to respond to your launch team request; however, I’ve been somewhat disabled for almost two years, am recovering from a June surgery, and learned just yesterday that the combo of drugs prescribed over time has depleted my nutrient base. I’m not fit to be helping anyone right now. Don’t know how I made it through Andi’s launch activities. This affects the mind, body, and soul. Some days darker than others. Will you allow me to pass and instead pray for your launch team? It’s what I do best right now.

        • Sherrey: I greatly appreciate you praying for the launch team. The launch is Tuesday (Dec. 5th), and you can pray for the people who are reading, reviewing, and promoting the book this week. Pray specifically they would be encouraged to do something extraordinary with their lives.

          • I’ll certainly be praying, Jon! Wishing you the best as you promote your book and launch it into the hands of booksellers and readers.
