The Book

Egad! What Have I Done?

About this time last year, I started writing a book.

I was inspired, in part, by my friends, Joy T.J. Riley (@GetJoyNTheMorn; http://getyourjoyinthemorning.blogspot.com) and Angela Solomon (@mlmwives; http://www.mlmwives.com) who had just written books and felt I could do it too.  I picked the topic of personal development since I passionate about people living up to their full God-given potential. In March, I asked my long-time and best friend, Shirley, to edit the seven chapters I had written so far.  Her review helped me to see I needed to revamp my book so that anyone who picked it up could understand and benefit from it.  Throughout the summer, I wrote on and off, revising chapters.

Last month, unbeknownst to me, Joy recommended me to the acquisitions editor at her publisher, Tate Publishing (http://www.tatepublishing.com). I yelled at Joy because my book was not finished but she said to send the editor an email introducing myself anyway.  I did and sent a copy of the Table of Contents and Introduction.   The editor responded with a thank you email and I thought no more about it.  Then suddenly last Thursday the editor left a voice message saying she was impressed with what I had written and offered me a publishing contract! My mouth fell open. I was afraid to move.  Can you say shocked and overwhelmed? (yes, I still have the message)  Before I could talk myself out of it, I signed the contract.

So………. I now have a publisher for my yet untitled and unfinished book! Egad, what have I done??!  I guess I have to finish the book.  Look for it in 2013!!!!!

  1. Good Luck! I can’t wait to read your book. I love personal journey type books. I am currently reading A Rebel Chick Mystic’s Guide by Lisa Selow (lisaselow.com if you want to check it out) and it has been a really fun read about empowerment and getting back to your true self, I have really loved it. So I will need a new book to read!
