The manuscript was uploaded for the eBook and paperback, and I am overjoyed. It feels wonderful to finish a task that you lived with daily for a long period of time. Thankfully the second time around was significantly easier — even though I still have a lot to learn about the writing process. Establishing a routine that truly works right along with the day job is ongoing work. Yet progress is on the horizon.
The intimidation factor of venturing into the unknown was missing this time. My confidence level was higher than when writing A Gateway to Hope. Once again I fell in love with the characters. It’s like Sadie and Kyle became a part of my family, just like Neka and James had. I really got to know them inside and out. After a while, information about their characters flowed effortless onto the paper. I knew these people and could anticipate their reactions in any situation they faced.
I wonder if every author feels the same way about the characters they create? I didn’t think I would ever stop thinking about Neka and James and their family and friends. That is, until I began writing about Sadie and Kyle and their story mates.
Now, I must delve deeper into the lives of the characters in Pajama Party: The Story. October (a tentative ready date) will arrive in no time. I don’t want the month to catch me by surprise.
Keep praying for me as I pound away at the keyboard for insight and the Father’s desire for this story. Also, pray about book three in the hope-themed series, due in the summer of 2017.
Remember to pre-order your eBook copy of A Living Hope at the reduced price of $3.99 before July 31.
I’ll be back soon!
