We head six hours south every chance we get to see our first grandchild. She has most certainly captured our hearts. She is 7 weeks old and time is going faster with her than it did with our own sons. Could it be because it is not day-to-day with her and just cuddling and loving when we see her? Continue reading
Just checking in! As I mentioned in my last post, our granddaughter arrived a couple of weeks early and is doing very well! She is precious and we are so excited. She is loved by two sets of grandparents who are experiencing their first grandchild, as well as so many friends and family!
I am back to working on the third edit of “Unexpected Gifts” and each time I go through it myself I find more to correct. I guess that is the teacher in me too, I want everything to be correct, and I am sure I will miss some items. I will run it through the “Grammarly” program again after this edit.
There sure is a lot to think about when writing and publishing a book! I have always felt it was to be published on Amazon as an e-book. Self-publishing a book in print can be quite costly, and right now that is not something we feel like I should do.
So, prayers appreciated. I know that I know, that I know I am supposed to get this book out there. Oddly enough I have two more book outlines started already. The second book will be a devotional and the other is another piece of fiction. Although I might make a second book in this series, we will just wait and see what the response is……
So my prayer is that you all are doing well. I hope to be back to blogging and staying in contact with all of you again soon.

Hey there friends!
I am taking a little break from my blog for a couple of weeks. I finally finished my book, “The Unexpected Gifts” or “Unexpected Gifts” . I keep going back to the second as the title. I have completed another proof read, and now going back to update and edit…again 🙂
It is amazing how many things I had to change because of dialogue, time, tense. Whew. It will never be perfect, but hopefully good enough that you will want to read it non-stop!
So, until then…..My 30-year-old goal to write a book and publish it is almost completed. I will be self publishing on Amazon if anyone has any tips and prayers, I would appreciate them!!
