The Book Marketing Network

For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers

I’ve been reading many of the blogs here at Book Marketing Network, and felt it was about time to let others know why I wrote I Must Be in Heaven, a promise kept.

In all honesty, I never …ever imagined, dreamed of… nor thought about writing a book, as others have. I have a job! A good job, I do electrical work with my husband. (Occasionally I have to do some really hard work…pulling wire, digging ditches. Don’t take me wrong, I always thank God, for the work.)

So, you are asking, how come start The Writing Life?

Well, basically….I made a promise. Yes, a promise to“Tell the Stories.”

I’m glad I did! Writing at this time in my life has been a tremendous challenge; one of the hardest things I have ever done. However, in doing so, I have found a tremendous amount of pleasure from my accomplishment. At-a-boys from friends and relatives, and numerous new networking acquaintances have been the icing on the cake so-to-speak….and like the cherry on top; the same ‘word-of-mouth’ skills we have used in the electrical business, is working for the book business.

Do I feel the journey has been worth it?

Absolutely! Because there’s something else… something that I discovered; I didn’t know I had… the ability and dedication to persevere… to do it right. Two years and two hundred and something pages…I’ve given it my all. I’ve written a book! I’m proud to have my name on it. I am excited and ready for it's debut.

Now, I know you are wondering what my expectations are for a first time author, when there are so many books, enormous stacks everywhere. Maybe, that I am too naive?

Don't worry, I have a plan....

Leave it, in God’s hands.
