Upcoming speaking engagement:
As a part of winning the WestBow/Women of Faith writing contest, they created this beautiful video, which features inspiration for other writers seeking publication, as well as a bit of information about my upcoming debut novel from David C. Cook.
Take a look.
And if you write, never, never never give up!
I’m thrilled and so grateful to announce my new, two-book contract with David C. Cook Publishers! Finalized in May, 2012, the first novel is slated for release in early 2014. The second is TBD. I couldn’t have asked for a more incredible company to trust with making my words be the best they can possibly be for you–my readers! Thank you, David C. Cook!!!
