Yes! I promised that my next book, Freeing Tanner Rose would be published by the end of 2012. Well, it’s 2013 and it’s still not published! Why? Some of you may be wondering. Well, life and work have gotten in the way.
I do pray that some day my fiction will be my number one source of income, but until then, there’s freelance writing and blogging. One particular project that I’m blessed to be a part of is Project Inspired. It’s a Christian website for teen girls. You should check it out!
I’ve also been compelled to begin another novel. I have a tendency to write more than one at a time when fresh ideas excite and inspire!
Besides my work, I home-school the oldest of my 3 children, take care of the other two young ones (actually 3, since I have another one on the way). My husband and I are also welcoming 15 chicks and 2 doe-ling goats within the next few months, in an attempt to begin a mini-farm. We grow a large garden in the summer and are planning on canning. Our hope is to create a self-sufficient lifestyle, and in doing so, Tanner Rose has been placed on the side-lines.
It’s not that her story is not important. It really is. It’s worth telling and worth reading. And I plan on getting the novel completed soon. But I wanted to share the reasons why she’s been neglected.
Honestly, the separation has been a good one. While my life is hectic, all my other “to dos” have allowed me to step away so that I can have a fresh approach when I get back into it to complete the final draft.
I’ve not spent time with Tanner Rose, nor Gabriel for that matter, for a while, but neither have left my mind. I think of them daily, confirming the completion of their story and some of the details in between. I look forward to getting together with them soon.
Thank you for letting me share and God bless you all!
