So, I didn’t make the deadline for producing book #2 in the Between Heaven and Hell series. In fact, I’m not finished writing it yet. But I’m not giving up! The projected publication is set for the end of January, barring any further health issues.
I have learned that sometimes despite my best efforts, things don’t go according to my plans and schedule. But being delayed does not mean defeat.
Patience may be a virtue, but it’s hard waiting for it…
I have often told my friends when I’m feeling frustrated over having to wait for something, that it is apparent that God is still teaching me about patience. Perhaps that’s part of the reason I became a writer. I can’t think of any other job I’ve ever had (except being a mother) that has required so much patience.
Just as with being a mother, there are rewards and blessings with writing, even when there’s no monetary gain.
I won’t lie, the financial aspect of selling my work is important (and necessary to put food on the table). But it is the ability to connect with other hearts and minds that gives me the greatest joy. When someone tells me that my words stirred something in their soul, I forget about all of the stress and money, and how hard it is to produce and publish. It renews my energy and spirit of sharing.
In the Spirit of Giving…
So, in the spirit of sharing (and since I didn’t get #2 finished in time), I am offering the Kindle version of book #1, The Chosen Ones at a special 50% discount for a limited time, beginning today, December 15.
In addition, since Christmas is about celebrating the miracle of God’s Gift to us, I am also offering the Kindle version of my first book, Faith, Hope & Miracles for free for a limited time, beginning December 17. It is a true story of a tragedy turned into a miracle that touched the lives and hearts of many.
And if you’re looking for a light-hearted read, you might enjoy the funny-but-true Crazy Critters #1, a collection of short stories about the hilarious antics and quirks of my furry and feathered friends.
As per Amazon’s policies, I won’t be able to offer any further discounts for 3 months, so I hope you will take advantage of these offers while they are available. (Kindle books make great gifts too, especially when you’re short on time, like I always seem to be. All it takes is just a few clicks to order, and your work is done. Amazon will do the rest. You can even schedule the delivery date, up to a year in advance.)
Well, it’s time to get back to making the Christmas cookies and fudge, (and putting the decorations that the cats pulled down back up. They are giving me a lot of content for Crazy Critters #2!)
Don’t forget to take advantage of the discounts while they last, and thanks in advance for helping me to spread the word by sharing. Just click on the covers below.
May your hearts and homes be filled with love and joy! – Amber
