I bet you think I'm talking about my children, no it's all about those words that I have put together hopefully into a story that will take your imagination and set it free. I hope, I can entertain you and make you think. I hope you will cry and laugh out loud. I hope you will want to keep turning the pages and not put it down. I hope you will become engaged with my characters and really get to know them. All of these things happened for me as I wrote this story.
I started out doing this because I always said I would. When I took a few writing classes, in my current "let's go back to college phase," I felt compelled to try. Eighty-five thousand words later I actually wrote a book. Even I'm surprised. It is an absolutely incredible story, now I hope I'm a good enough writer to tell it the way it deserves to be told. I started out thinking that this would be my part-time job. That if I could sell it, I could help Rick bear the burden of our well-being. Today, I don't care if it sells, although that would be nice, I really want people to love it, get involved with it and hopefully get "My Message."
Those of you who know me, know that I absolutely love the sound of my own voice; as in I love to talk. Well this is a different type of voice and I love the story, but the telling of it makes me nervous. Let me get some feed-back from the professionals and maybe I'll print a bit of it here. Takes a little bit more courage to let it go out into the big bad world.
