After the initial leaping and hugging when my free copies of Count Your Blessings arrived, the realization set in that I'm now published in hard copy, and not just on the net. The NASCAR addition of Chicken Soup has my story, A Renewed Life, in final draft for possible release in February. For all of you who have encouraged me along the way, thank you from my soul.
Next year will be a busy year. I will continue my search for an agent for The Fifth Step, a contemporary fiction novel about a preacher with a dark secret that threatens to destroy his ministries, his marriage, and his life. To market this novel, I'll be attending the DWF and OWFI Conferences in April, and one other conference to be determined later in the year. Face-to-face meetings with agents yield better results than sending out a mass of written queries. In today's writing world, you can't be just good, you have to be exceptional to receive attention.
Keep me in your prayers.
