Busy week!

So many wonderful things are happening, I’m about to bust! I stay super busy, but I love it all!

I had a great week with my Long Ridge Writers Group lessons! I have the best students who send me such fabulous stories and articles, I have to put down my blue pen and read them for myself before I go back and edit. Wow! That makes being an instructor so much fun!

On Friday, I finished the first draft of Special Mission, the second of my West Virginia Heartsong Presents books. It needs quite a bit of work, but it’s nice to have something to work with. I changed something midway through the book, and now I have to go back and pull out the entire thread without letting the whole story unravel. That’s always a challenge, but it’s part of the job.

All week I mailed influencer copies of my Summerside Press book Love Finds You in Treasure Island, Florida that should be available June 1. That was such a fun book to write, and I pray that other people enjoy it. It’s full of all kinds of relationships—hero-heroine, parents, siblings, friends, mature adult-small child, and every combination I could manage. And the setting gave me plenty to hang my story on! Who wouldn’t love such a beautiful place as Treasure Island, Florida? The beach is gorgeous! Check this out for a quick glimpse of the setting and story theme: Treasure Island book trailer.

I don't see how all your authors get it all done, but I guess it is a job and one that you love, so everything through God is possible.
Pleae enter me into a drawing for a free book if you have one, I would love to receive a new book.

Debby, I feel "energized" just from reading your post, LOL!! I love the fact that you seem so upbeat and positive. :) In these times of so many folks being unhappy and displeased with their jobs, etc., it's refreshing to see someone who is truly enjoying what she does. Thanks for sharing!
