The Best Gift at My Door

Me with my book Passage of Promise April 1 2020

 

While eating dinner, there was a knock on our front door. Troy, my husband, opened the door, stepped outside then came back inside with a box. A box that looked like it was holding a book. MY Book. And sure enough, it was!

My print copy for me to inspect came this evening. And with all the hard work and struggles I went through today with a website for authors that led me to discouragement and tears of frustration, this totally made up for it! I can’t believe it’s my book, and the thickness of it. Man, I really wrote a lot! Ha ha! Celebrating time. Publication date is May 4, for those interested. 🙂

This afternoon, I was so excited and overjoyed to see the book cover template of my debut novel, Passage of Promise, done by my editor.

She’s brilliant, and it’s GORGEOUS. I had a picture in my mind, and this not only matched it, but exceeded it.

I can’t wait to have a sample to show everyone.

We have some time before my book’s publication date of May 4, 2020.

But there’s lots of work to do.

I’m hoping to have a pic of the book cover in the next week or so, plus my son, Nicholas, and I need to work on my book’s video trailer.

I almost can’t believe this is all happening. Five years of sweat, tears, writer’s cramp,  mental exhaustion from several rewrites, edits, revisions, and steadfastness has brought me to this point.

Thank you, God. ❤

Getting Closer!

My publishing project with my editor’s consulting starts on Monday. It’s possible my debut novel, Passage of Promise, could be out to the public by mid to late April! But, of course, before that happens, I’ll have a picture of the book cover, as well as a book trailer (the latter, compliments of my son, Nicholas’ video and computer talents). Will keep you posted!
