Publication Update & Happy Birthdays, too-From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Oh, am I ever so excited to bring you the latest news in this seemingly never-ending journey. Grab your coffee and come on in! 🙂 🙂

So about two weeks ago, they sent me the “layout” format, and I almost didn’t even look at it because I thought to myself, what does the layout have to do with me? Well, I am soooo glad that I did look at it! It’s adorably refreshing and chic! I can’t wait for you to see it. I thought the layout had to do with formatting, you know, spacing, paragraphing, pages, that sort of thing. Boy, was I ever wrong! 🙂 🙂

And then I went to the mailbox a couple of days ago, and my heart stopped as I picked up a package the size of a book! Yep, the proof copy for me to read once again, but in the actual book form, with the cover and everything!

As I turned the pages and began the proofing process (for what seems like the hundredth time ) these inspired words written what seems forever ago reminded me of this book’s purpose:

“I can’t believe it’s true; you are finally reading this inspired first novel of the Destination? Joyful! ™ trilogy, and I am excited and humbled at the same time. There is so much to learn and gain in this gift of life, and my honest prayer for you would be that the pages of this novel would speak to your heart about the reality of Old Testament life and the availability and necessity to embrace our God-given New Testament future!”

Can I get an “Amen”? 🙂 🙂

I’ve also received news that they will be doing what they call trailers, which are 15-second commercials about “Back to Single.” Whew, is it really happening?

I’m so excited, humbled and grateful all at the same time. I can’t wait for you to hold it in your hands and for the words to resonate within your soul and for you to share them with others!

Blessings

And now for a couple of VERY important announcements! J I would like to wish my self-adopted mom a very happy birthday. Mom, you truly are an amazing, awe-inspiring gentle soul that has made my life so much better! Today and every day, I celebrate you. I love you to His throne and back again. You are a HUGE part of this book!

Also, a big happy birthday to Susan; may His love penetrate deep into your soul and soften your heart and bring you new life.

Kerri-Lynn, my sweet niece, Happy, happy birthday! What a joy you are and I pray that the memories you create today will squeeze your heart with love and laughter for years to come!
