VADA FAITH AVAILABLE ON KINDLE

VADA FAITH is now available as a Kindle e book on Amazon.
See bottom of page for cover.

I'm so excited I could shout it from the rooftops.

I would, if I wasn't so tired.

I've never worked as hard as I have these last few weeks getting the book in shape.
And I thought the initial writing was difficult.

Then the worrying kicked in and I've fussed over every little detail. I can see why some call it "birthing a book."

At least I don't have to sit up with it at night or listen to its cries.
Or rock it back to sleep.

I'm ready for a break. But it will be a short one.

I'm starting to format the manuscript for paperback. E books are nice but I love to hold a book!

I plan to work with Amazon to produce the book form.

It should be available on Amazon by late spring or early summer.

Those are my plans for the coming months!

What are yours??? Any writing OR reading projects ahead?

Please share.  If you have time please take a look at Vada Faith I'd love to hear from you.

My daughter Jill did the cover and I'm as proud of it as I am the story!

Amazon offers a few sample pages to download for free.

PLUS, Amazon offers free downloads of Kindle to your laptop, Mac or PC.
Can't beat that deal.

Have a great week end.

Look forward to hearing from you!
Blessings!

  8. Congratulations! That is quite an accomplishment. I love the cover, too. You deserve a break, but I am sure it will be a short one. You can't keep a good writer relaxing for long, you just have to write.

  9. I'm reserving my paperback copy now. Sarah will want one, too. I'm so excited about this. I love the cover art!

    Now, you know, once one book is out there, you need to start on your next one. You inspire me to want to finish mine -- but I also cringe a little at the thought -- it's pure hard work.

ODE TO OLD OR I SHALL WEAR PURPLE.....

Ode to Old
When I am old- Really really old- And cannot see -
Red balls of rouge- Riding- High on my cheeks,
Black lines- Arching- Over my eyes, 
Gravy stains covering- Yellow flowers- On my good blue dress.
When I am old- And cannot see - Will you please do-  My grooming for me?

The Dreaded School Pictures

This year when my children brought home their school pictures, I cringed. These kids can leave home looking cherubic, but the minute they pose for that school photographer they are transposed into unrecognizable beings. My middle daughter brought home pictures bearing her name and room number that couldn't have been my offspring. Nor a distant relative.
I had worked for hours on this child. Her hair was parted in the middle and drawn into a cute little ponytail over each ear. Even though she is at an awkward age, she looked adorable when she went out that door. Her missing front teeth only added to her charm. The kid in the picture has her mouth open wide displaying ugly dark gaps. Her one visible ponytail is lopsided, her part is uneven, and her bangs look like they were cut with pinking shears. I know this isn't my child because I always give my children a good haircut before they have their pictures taken. The only thing vaguely familiar is the sweater the child has on. My dau…

Building a story vs building a house

My latest book!



Dear Writer: 
Writing a story is somewhat similar to building a house. Or not!
Remember this:
when we give a piece of our story to someone to read - we expect them to see the whole.
It's like building a house and offering a single piece of lumber to another builder. “Here, see the house I'm building.” SOME CAN SEE IT AND SOME CAN’T. Here's the thing: MOST CAN'T.
This step is as necessary to me as breathing. 
I need to give you single boards as I create them. AND I expect you to be a visionary and say, “Why yes. I see.”  
I need you to see how special the piece of lumber is that I'm using and to see that eventually I'll add more pieces to make the whole. 
Choose people to read your work who like the kind of stories you write. 
There are as many kinds of stories as there are houses to live in. If you give a brick ranch to someone who only appreciates a cape cod then he'll have a hard time fitting himself into what you are offering.
Don’t rebu…
