Going The Distance?
Yep. That is the title of my first book. Did I mention I’m a writer? Ever since I was a teenager and I discovered that I loved to read, I wrote stories that were the forerunners of fan-fiction. Bet you didn’t know that I wrote a story that was a spin-off from the television series Land of the Giants. Oh, and I wrote a very moving story that was one of those sequels to My Friend Flicka. Later on I tried my hand at writing stories with the characters from Start Trek. You will NEVER see those manuscripts, so don’t ask. Did I mention that I was very young when I started writing stories?
Ever since then, I have written off and on, for better or worse, for richer or poorer. Wait a minute—distraction alert. Sorry. Two and a half years ago, I started looking for a publisher for my first manuscript. After several passes and much discouragement, I began thinking about starting a blog to build a platform for my writing.
Wait a minute! A blog?
Yep. Several people encouraged me to start writing a blog; so one afternoon I sat down at my laptop and wrote my first article. My wonderful husband helped me set up an account with WordPress, and I launched “Conversations From My Laptop” in January of 2015.
To all my readers who followed me from the start, I just wanted to say, “Thank you!” According to WordPress, I have almost 3,000 subscribers. I never dreamed that many people would read what I have to say. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Now I have three published books in a little over a year. Only God could have done that, and I’m praising the Lord for his goodness.
My first book, Going The Distance, was very well received. Many of my readers suggested that I write a sequel. So, after I published my third book, Becoming Unbroken, in October of 2016, I began work on the sequel to Going The Distance. I am now into the twentieth chapter, and I’m hoping to have it finished soon. In the meantime, I thought I would share some portions of Going The Distance to give you a little taste of what is coming in the sequel.
In the meantime, God bless and keep you all!
