Yes, I have amassed quite the collection of reliable web sites, resources, and connections through the research I’ve done on my own books or through connections with other historical authors. There are so many unique facts and discoveries, it’s difficult to narrow it down to one or two.
This depends on whether it’s a story I developed on my own, or if it’s one my agent or an editor suggested and asked that I write. For the most part, I begin with a time period or event, then throw my characters into the mix. But for two of my books, I had the characters first and created the events around them. Whatever seems to work best for the project is where I begin.
Yes, it’s the third compilation book of my previous books to be released. These always sell quite well, and I’m especially excited to know my publisher is returning to only a photo representative of the setting on the cover, instead of a photo with a cover model in the foreground. As soon as they send me the cover, and it’s finalized and approved, I’ll get it posted on my web site.
My tagline is Real Life Empowered by Faith or Sharing History through Faith-Based Stories, so faith is at the center of everything I write. I’ve been blessed with a strong amount of faith, and I’ve never wavered in it, no matter what life has thrown my way. It has been my core, my rock, and the reason I have been able to continue in the face of opposition and significant setbacks. So, I’d love my readers to know how integral faith is in guiding life. When you have the faith that God’s got a great view of the big picture and He’ll never leave you no matter what, you can get through the day-to-day with more spring in your step and confidence in your future.
Actually, I just closed the doors on my web design and virtual assistant work last week to pursue another business venture that allows me to focus more on my family, and merges well with my writing and speaking. It’s a brand new step I’m taking, but already, I can see the amazing fruit coming from that leap of faith. I can’t tell you about the huge weight I feel lifted from my shoulders after 15 years of juggling far more than I should have. It’s not that I regret any of those years. In fact, that work made so many other connections and opportunities possible and introduced me to lifelong friends. But I am at peace about this decision and am confident only continued abundant blessings from my Heavenly Father are in store.
You pretty much covered everything that comes to my mind. Of course, it’s after midnight as I’m writing this, so my sleep-fogged brain might not be thinking as clearly. J Still, I owe so much to my readers and those who support my work. We as authors wouldn’t be able to do what we love if you didn’t read and purchase our books or share them with others. I love meeting new readers all the time. That never gets old. And I love hearing from you, so drop me a line any time. I personally reply to all emails, messages, cards, letters, etc. Get in touch with me in whatever manner works best for you. Looking forward to notes.
