The Books are Here

Isn't this a beautiful sight? The books are here. Now the job of marketing begins. I had a great visit with Sharon Kizziah Holmes, (PaperBack Press) my publisher, this afternoon. We discussed "Grandpa Forgot My Name" as well as other upcoming projects. She gave me helpful advice about marketing. Thank you, Sharon, for your expertise in publishing. The book is available on Amazon and most other online retailers.

I wrote this story about 15 years ago after my daddy died with Alzheimer disease. I sent it to several children's magazines for publication, but it was never accepted so I moved on to other things. Last March, I showed it to Sharon Kizziah Holmes and she agreed to publish it for me through Kids Book Press. I am so grateful to her and to Carlos Lemos, who did the amazing illustrations. My prayer is now that God will use it in the life of many children and adults who are facing the difficult circumstance of having a loved one with Alzheimer's or other dementia.

I am also excited that my first historical fiction book Romance Along the Rails is getting closer to publication. We are working on the cover, and it is in the final editing stages. My dream of being published is finally comin…

An Attitude of Gratitude

November - The Month of Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving - The word evokes so many mental images: dinners with extended family and way more food than we needed; the annual football game with brothers, cousins and friends; card games (Rook and Pit) with everyone around the table. Great, great memories! Is that really what Thanksgiving is all about?
It should be about an attitude of our heart. We have so much to be thankful for. All we have to do is look around to see our blessings. Family and friends are a big part of that, but there is so much more. First and foremost is the fact that our Father God loved us so much that He sent Jesus to Earth to live as a man and then to die in our place, taking our punishment for sin. An equally amazing blessing is that He arose from the dead and now, if we repent of our sin and accept Him as Savior, He lives in us and is with us every moment of everyday! There's nothing better!
Turn your heart toward God and thank Him for all He has done.
