The possibility is that I will finally find a home where I can write the kinds of complex stories I have longed to write….and I am frankly terrified at the prospect. It’s one thing to have an idea, a dream–quite another to deliver the goods.
I am beyond grateful for the opportunity, but now that it is here, I question my gift for telling a story in such a way that it will open minds, touch hearts and reach readers.
Recently I have been reading a lot of mainstream fiction and attending author lectures at my local bookstore. I inhale the words of these authors who have already done what I hope to do. The truth is that I have done this already–my novel A SISTER’S FORGIVENESS was my first attempt. My WWII series THE PEACEMAKERS was my second. In both cases I was blessed to work with a publisher who allowed me to follow my story wherever it led.
So I can do this…pretty sure of that. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted on how it goes….
