In case you hadn’t noticed, it has been quite awhile since I posted on this blog. I was doing so well… but here I am again. I have exciting news to report.
First, I just returned from a trip to Sellersville, Pennsylvania where I was able to visit a church and a school. I also visited some of my best friends in the world, the Clark family. They are the kind of friends that are really family, if you know what I mean. It had been too many years since I was there but it didn’t seem like it had been that long. We pick up right where we leave off.
On Sunday night I had the privilege of signing books at the book store at Bethel Baptist Church there in Sellersville. Then on Monday I spoke at Upper Bucks Christian School where I was able to share my presentation with the students in the 2nd-6th grades. What a wonderful time that was. I love Upper Bucks anyway, it’s where I did my student teaching, but the staff and students were all so welcoming and fun to work with. Actually, six years ago Miss Dana Clark read my rough draft to her class of third graders. They wrote me and gave me their ideas and suggestions. Miss Clark read the finished book (though not in book form) to her 2nd grade class last year, then the REAL thing to her class this year. I have been blessed to receive feedback from these students. In addition to the fun of visiting with friends, students, and teachers, I also sold 41 books on this trip. That was AWESOME! I was thankful to hear today that Miss Clark’s class is praying for me as I endeavor to get my second book finished and out to publishers. I am actively looking for a publisher for the second book in the series. I would rather find a traditional publisher this time so if you would, please pray for that.
This afternoon, in response to a question from one of the 6th graders, I pulled together the semi-official number of books sold so far. To date, as near as I can figure, I have sold over 500 books. This is VERY EXCITING for me.
Please remember the books are available from online stores, from the publisher at winepressbooks.com, from me directly (check my website), and most bookstores should be able to order them in for you. Thank you for reading my blog… especially those of you who faithfully check to see if there are any new postings. I won’t wait so long before posting again!
