Welcome to Heaven & El!

I’m El Edwards, founder of Youier & The Blue House. Heaven & El is here to bring you a little dose of God’s love, every weekday morning, via the Sam Says love notes (Who’s Sam? That’s a story for another day) and Christian fantasy fiction weekly from mid-August as soon as I stopping stalling and actually start releasing it!

Some of you reading this have, until now, been enjoying these little Holy Spirit love notes via Facebook or Instagram or maybe you’ve been reading them on the Youier blog and you’re wondering why the change?

There’s a couple of reasons:

  1. I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with traditional social media. I love the social part, I’ve got friends who I met on Twitter over a decade ago, but for me at least, it’s tended to feel less fun and social of late.

    Moving the love notes here and adding Substack’s “notes” feature into the mix feels a bit like Twitter circa 2010 and I’m excited to explore the potential and meet a whole load of new friends at the same time.

  2. After publishing five fiction novels between 2015 and 2018 and then un-publishing almost all of them in 2021, I got a nudge at the edge of 2022 that it was time to start writing fiction again, but this time it’s going to be a bit different and I’m going to be sharing the new books chapter by chapter here.

    It’s a bit of an experiment and I don’t really know what it’ll all look like but I can’t wait to find out and I would love you to join me in this journey. The easiest way to do that is to subscribe.

    (House-keeping note: If you’ve been receiving the daily love notes via email prior to June 2023, you don’t need to do anything. You’re already subscribed, clever you!)

With all of that said, thank you for being here. I’m excited to share the love notes & the fiction with you - and if you enjoy what you read, please share with some friends. I don’t know who I don’t know so I always appreciate word of mouth recommendations - and thank you in advance for doing so!
