The journey without Heidi started on April 3, 1994. The journey to write this book started in September 2006. Six years later, there is only one way to go. FORWARD!
The editor is working her magic on the manuscript as you read this blog. I thought to submit to an agent or publisher made me nervous, ugh, it is nothing compared to waiting to hear from the editor. I have an array of questions in my brain:Will she like it? Will it come back with so many notes that my head spins around twice? Will it need a complete overhaul? Have I made a mistake? Will I need to try those energy drinks in order to stay up at night after working all day just to make the publishing deadline for an April release? Am I doing the right thing?
See what I mean? I'm blessed with family, friends, and a God who will not let fear take a foothold in the progress of this book. I know it is going to come back in need of changes and corrections, this is why we are investing time and money with a good editor. I know it might need some reorganization because eighteen years are jumbled in my brain when it comes to Heidi's disappearance. I pray I don't need energy drinks though, they scare me. lol Time will tell and I am excited and looking forward to moving one way with God as the director. He continues to open doors for this story and me.
The book cover will be revealed on September 14th, 2012 in honor of Heidi's birthday. This will be exciting too. We cannot wait to share it with you and how it came to be.
As we, my family and I, move forward with the multitude of details that are required for an April release date we want to make sure you are included with any new developments, changes, upcoming events, and news of the exact release date.
Each Tuesday will be dedicated to my first book, Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. Starting next week, on August 21, T.O.P.'s Tuesday will begin. To learn what the T.O.P.S. stands for and more information about the book's release - be sure to read the blogs on Tuesdays and check the "Where's Heidi?" book page on my site too.
Blogs will continue as usual throughout the week with Tuesday being a special blog with significance to the book and its release in April.
