A busy week of reading, editing, and revising. Two wonderful women from my writers' critique group announced the release of their first books this week too. Very exciting. In addition to going through the proof book with a fine tooth comb, I am praying and preparing for upcoming speaking engagements. A lot of fun!
I found this photo in Heidi's yearbook and the face captured my heart. Her smile always takes my breath away. She was always smiling and happy. Life didn't seem to beat her down. Her high school closed her junior year but she didn't whine or complain, instead she applied for college a year early. Not only was she accepted but she was set to graduate in May 94' with the highest of honors. An amazing young woman.
If you have lost a loved one...
What is one character trait that always makes you smile?
What is one attribute that you miss the most?
News to report:
*The reading, editing, and revising of the proof book is still underway.
*Feedback of the book is positive and encouraging. One "sister" is reading who lost her sibling tragically and has a divide with her other sibling. She said, "You understand things like no one else. For the first time I don't feel alone. Thank you." Wow...
*Mom finished reading Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. She was so engrossed in the read that she didn't make a single note or suggestion for changes. This is a Mom for you or as she said, "No, it is a good read. I'm proud of you." Mom's full review is posted here: http://www.lisambuske.com/wheres-heidi-one-sisters-journey.html

*The next book is on hold until after the proof book changes are complete and it is resubmitted to the publisher for the next set of proof books to arrive. Possibly a September 14th, 2013 release for my second book? Who knows, too early to tell.

Our Tuesday blogs are titled, T.0.P.'s Tuesday
and will provide you with information relating to the release of Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. It might be an upcoming speaking engagement, the cover, an excerpt, or bizarre tidbits about the publishing process you may not be aware of.
Why is is called T.O.P.'s Tuesday? Great question!
Heidi played volleyball for the Bishop Cunningham Jr./Sr.
High School until it closed in 1992. On February 14th, 1992
the Palladium Times (an Oswego, New York newspaper) named
my sister, Heidi M. Allen athlete of the week. This was exciting and
we were all proud of her but it was the name they gave her
that stirred the most attention, "Tower of Power".
