This is Auntie Shelley. She is one of the most awesome people I know all by herself. She is also reading Favored One, which I feel is pretty awesome, too. Be like Auntie Shelley. Advertisements
Approximately eleven years ago, my first book, Trees in the Pavement, was released to the world, courtesy of Christian Focus Publications. Today, even though the book itself has been written for almost as long, Favored One hit the websites. This time, though, Notes on Pilgrimage, the new publishing imprint of the Sanctuary at Woodville, is the publisher. … Continue reading Celebrate with Me!
Everyone. Favored One is available for pre-order! It publishes a week from tomorrow. You should probably get on that.
You know how sometimes you read a book and it’s so well-written, or the characters are so wonderful, or the story is so moving, you get “something in your eye” or have a little trouble swallowing or something?

Wordy Wednesday Sometimes I get an email from a friend that is actually kind of personal and detailed and informative, and they ask me questions about me, too, and I think, That was a good email. I want to write a comparable email back, but I just don’t have time right now. Or maybe the questions … Continue reading Avoidance Issues

My friend Fortune’s Gale brought up the topic in an email once, and said something about Mary … Continue reading Bearing Word
Wordy Wednesday Last week a fellow blogger wrote a fantastic review of my published book, Trees in the Pavement. This week I got an email from my Editor about the same book, and another email from that Agent who had asked to read my unpublished book, Favored One. Neither email was bad, exactly, but let’s just say that, during … Continue reading A Tale of Two Books
