I love to write. I love the process of discovering, tweaking, and editing words. Like an adoring mother, I check on every infant story like its a baby, inspecting it multiple times a day to gaze at it, straightening a word here, caressing a phrase there. Putting my story baby down is so difficult, but stories, like babies, need to rest (or is it me who needs a nap?). This forced separation gives me fresh eyes the next time I see my little one, allowing it to grow and mature.
But the process of moving my manuscript from editing, formatting, and designing the book cover to printing and publishing has been a bit more daunting. Actually, its been VERY daunting. But isn't that the way of childbirth? Labor pains are excruciating but we look forward with expectancy to the arrival of a healthy baby. So too, I am looking forward the birth of my first born book.
So with a little anticipation, here is a sneak peek at Becoming His Beloved: Journey into the Father's Affection.
Finally, I want to share one special story with you. I had the chance to read it to a group last summer. You may even hear my voice crack a little. Enjoy!
