One More Step– it’s almost here!! At dinner today, I told the kids “Mommy’s book will be in the bookstores on Tuesday.” Tessa, my 4 year old, just stared at me and asked for corn. My husband said “Hallelujah!” His funny way of being thankful for many reasons.
There’s a lot that goes into writing a book. Maybe you’ve guessed that before now. Since my previous books were self-published, I’ve learned a ton along this journey of standard publishing. Because of that, I’ve had the dream of sharing a “Behind the Book” video series for quite some time. Last week I had a videographer scheduled for a day and then it didn’t work out. But I was determined to persevere and I’d love it if you’d take less than 5 minutes to watch this video!
Behind the Book, One More Step
For the highlights of Behind Chapter 1:
- This chapter was the introduction in the first draft of the manuscript.
- My wise editor felt that it should either be blended into another chapter or expanded to stand alone.
- The more I worked on writing the book, the more I felt this first chapter sets the tone and clarifies the goals of the book.
- This book is my heart and I really want you to know I’m not pointing to the top of the mountain, offering advice on how to get there. No, I’m walking beside you and we’re moving little by little.
