I’ve signed my first copy.

What a rewarding week this has been. The final steps of publication have been completed through WestBow. I’ve ordered books so that I can deliver signed copies. Two book signings are in the planning stages. This blog is now set up to take PayPal and credit card orders. Whew.

I was greeted at school on Friday by a colleague whose son had purchased the hard-cover copy through Amazon and already received it. She held it out and asked me if I would sign it. Of course, I did. And I  think that I floated through most of the day.

Thanks, Josh D. and everyone else who has been so supportive.

Thanks so much,

Three years in the making but finally almost here.

I really can’t believe that it has taken so long. When I began writing, I had no idea that three years would be history before this monumental task would reach completion.
I have many to thank:
Josh, for making me realize I wanted to write
Earl, for first telling me that I could write
Gloria, Linda, Ellen, Sherry, Carol and Laura, for critiquing as I wrote
Mark, for encouraging me through the down times of writing
family and friends for their joy at the product of my writing
and much to be grateful for:
Andy, a graphic artist who went to great lengths to help me have the cover I wanted
Ryan at WestBow, who answered countless questions and helped in numerous ways.
I’ve learned so much.
Perseverence is a must in anything worthwhile.
Patience goes a long way in handling difficult people and circumstances.
Inspiration comes in marvelous ways and unusual places.
And most of all,
God is in control.
