Blogging?


Was July 11th really my last post? You probably thought I forgot all about you. I haven't, but I have been busy. Have I told you I finished my novel Kellen's hope? It's romance coupled with tragedy mystery and suspense.

Not only that, I finished working with Robert Oliver, of Oliver designs, for my book cover, and I love it. Tell me what you think? I'm still researching who to e-publish through. Perhaps Book-Baby. Who do you recommend?

I'm also thrilled with the endorsement I received from NY Times best-selling author of The Lost Valentine, James Michael Pratt, which was made into a Hallmark movie. Wanna know he said? Here it is:

“A well written page turner for those who enjoy mystery, conflict and ultimately faith overcoming tragedy. I highly recommend Kellen’s Hope by Danie Marie.”

Wowza! Totally cool, huh? He blessed my socks off… Um, sandals! Who wears socks in the summer?

I'm going to have glossy cards made up with the cover on the glossy side, and the book blurb on the other to hand out to friends, and anyone I meet who shows interest, plus, I need to prepare an author page on Facebook. :)

As you can see, everything is finally coming together for my debut novel. I've been working on Kellen's hope for close to five years, in which I've had three surgeries. A couple were multiple operations done at the same time, so to finally have my novel completed is an exciting time in my life. I can't wait to share with you when it's finally out there and ready to be downloaded.

And just so you know, this isn't the first story I've written. The other three are novellas. My fantasy Where Darkness Dwells is nearly ready to be published as well. I have a few pictures picked out that would be really cool for the cover on that one.

Let me know what you think of the cover. :)

Perhaps, Perseverance, should have been the title of this post.

Lord, thank you for helping us walk along the path of your choosing, and for directing our footsteps along the way. We thank you Lord, for your perfect timing in bringing about your will. Help us to wait patiently on you. In Jesus name, amen.
 
 
What work has the Lord been doing in your life ?

 
Love & Blessings,
