December Praying for a specific event in December - God introduced an amazing possibility to me for a weekend in December. The non profit organization is interested in having me and I'm honored to be asked, nothing is confirmed as of yet because they need to raise the funds to cover my travel expenses. Thrilled they thought of me and asked, now praying God provides the way to get there. Mags is praying they not only raise enough for my travel but for my PR gal (daughter) to travel with me. Love that kid, she is excited and enjoys sharing hope with other families too. We'll see...
Scheduling for the Fall and into Spring of 2014: firstname.lastname@example.org
Was asked while checking out the other day, a store associate asked,
"So when is the next book coming out?"
I smiled, looked at my daughter, back to the clerk and said, "Christmas".
Her expression was priceless...then she asked, "What is it about?"
I told her I couldn't tell because it is a gift for my parents.
Her response, "I just got goose bumps, I can't wait."
Guess the secrets out...I can't lie, my smirk gave it away.
Instead of saying, "I'm always writing something." I let the secret out of the bag. I wasn't going to announce I hoped to release something new around Christmas until a couple weeks before since it's a gift for my parents BUT...since I leaked it out, I might as well shout it.
Yes, I am working on a book to be released on or after Christmas. What is the title? I'm not telling. What is it about? I'm not telling. What type of book is it? I'm not sharing that either. The first people to learn the title, subject, and see the cover will be my parents. My target date is December 24th, 2013. This is a goal, still a lot of work to be done to reach that point - it may be only my parents who see the proof copy on Christmas, depending on the progress made in the next couple months.
I'm always writing and have a few ideas floating around in my head but right now I'm working on a book for my parents - their Christmas gift. A story I hope children and adults alike will enjoy reading together. With that being said, I better go before I reveal too many clues and my Mom or Dad figure out what the book is about or the genre. I know they will smile, laugh, and say "You got us again!".
