Getting that first copy of your spanking new book by FedEx
Reading your first rave review (not rant)
Hearing the book is going into another printing
Finding your book in a big box store like Wal-Mart or Sam's Club
I do feel each book is a journey for me as an author. And I feel God placed these stories on my heart not simply for myself but to reach certain readers. Notice I didn't say all readers. I always pray that He will put my stories into the hands of those He chooses. I leave the results to Him. This helps me weather the bumps along the way and keeps the jitters to a minimum.
Here's a fun question that I was asked for an upcoming magazine interview. I'd love to hear your thoughts...
If you could have dinner with any historical figure, who would you choose and why?
