God has an amazing way of surprising us with more than we expect.
I’ve been pursuing writing for the past ten years and in that time God’s done some amazing things like:
Introduced me to the fabulous Alley Cats
He brought the FABULOUS, Julie Gwinn to be my friend first – and then my agent
Brought wonderful authors like the Seekers, Janice Thompson, Beth Vogt, and so many others into my life
He’s brought teaching and resources to help hone my skills.
And now..well, I’ve joined the roller coaster of published authors.
1. I signed my first contract with Lighthouse of the Carolinas for my Contemporary Romance novel, A Twist of Faith, at the end of September. It’s a fun story that is a modern day retelling of My Fair Lady set in Appalachia. It’s scheduled to release in June 2015.
2. I signed my second contract in mid-November to co-author a Middle Reader/YA novel that accompanies a new video game releasing in 2015.
3. Yesterday I signed a three book contract with Vinspire Publishing for my historical romance series, beginning with The Thornbearer to be released in October 2015. This Penned in Time series takes place during World War 1 and follows the lives of three friends who each struggle with forgiveness and the definition of true beauty as they face a world at war.
I’m excited about these new opportunities but also nervous about how to make it all fit into a very busy schedule as a full-time speech language pathologist and mom of five. It’s great to know if God provided the opportunities, He’ll also provide the ability to complete them 🙂
Here’s to seeing what God ends up doing with MY story in the middle of writing these stories!!
