Hello faithful readers!
It’s been a busy time around the Big Blue House. Well, honestly, when is it not? I’ve been working on Angels Unaware, and I’m so excited about it! I just love this story. I also have the perfect cover art for it. Now, if you’ve been with me a while you know that I was searching high and low for the owner of that fabulous angel graphic. Unfortunately, I am unable to locate them. But, a dear friend of mine took a magnificent shot of a church roof, with clouds and…well, you’ll see when I get my cover mocked up.
One reason I am so in love with this particular story is that I feel it really shows why faith in Jesus is so very important. I’m not a big evangelist in person. In fact, I get a bit shy about talking about faith. However, the Lord has given me this gift of writing, and I can express it there.
Another reason is this story was the last that my sweet friend Sandy proofread for me. We unexpectedly lost Sandy in August 2015. But, as you know, if you’ve been around me a while, nothing is unexpected to our Great Heavenly Father. She encouraged me, supported me, listened to me rant about everything and nothing. I miss her very much, as do many others. She was “one of those people,” one who made everyone feel as though they were her best good friend. This is her book. If you frequent my Facebook page, you probably saw this post:
So. Funny story that my sweet friend and patient proof-reader Sandy would have gotten a giggle out of. After I designated and signed all my copies, I sat down to savor that moment when all your work pays off…when you actually SEE your baby live on paper. Right there on the very first page of the very first chapter. A huge, glaringly obvious typo. Sandy always reminded me to wait on her; and she always caught even the smallest of errors in the manuscript. Man, I miss her for more than her proofing skills. She always encouraged me to wait on the very best and not to settle for good enough. One day, we’ll laugh over this. Needless to say, the book will be off market for 24 hours. I hope everyone who receives the “Over Confident Author Version” can chuckle too. #bagoverhead #crazyauthor
