Welcome to Scribes & Archers! I’m Ariel (R.M. Archer is my pen name), and I’m a Christian homeschool graduate and new wife seeking to write quality fiction and equip other Christian authors to do the same. I’ve been writing for about fourteen years now, blogging consistently for six years, and reading for as long as I can remember. If you need a heap of new book recommendations, come talk to me! It’s quite likely I’ve read something that’ll fit whatever you’re looking for.

With this blog I try to help out young Christian writers by providing practical, easy-to-use tips on character development, worldbuilding, and other parts of the craft. I also share about my own writing, which is primarily fantasy. My most recent release is titled Calligraphy Guild and you can read more about it here!

I post on Tuesdays and my schedule includes a mixture of book reviews and writing advice posts. If you’d like to get updates whenever I post something new, you can subscribe in the sidebar, or on this page if you want more information.



If you’d like to contact me with a question, alert me of a typo, or just chat, you can do so via my “Contact Me” page. I also have a Discord server where you can join a whole community of like-minded authors and readers!

I also have a Facebook page, Instagram account, and a Pinterest profile if you’d like to check those out, and you can find my published works here.

Affiliate disclaimer: I use affiliate links in my posts, meaning purchases made through those links earn me a small commission at no extra cost to you. Most of my affiliate links are marked, with the exception of my World Anvil links; links to my World Anvil articles for example purposes are automatically given an affiliate tag by my site, but are not visibly marked. World Anvil affiliate links (both marked and unmarked) earn me a commission if you purchase a World Anvil subscription within 10 days of clicking the link. Amazon affiliate links are dead, meaning they will still take you to the marked product but I earn no commission from purchases made through those links.
