Big Step Forward

Here I go . . . the editor at my target publishing house for the book project that I'm working on wants to see my manuscript!  Next week I'll be sending in my first 3 chapters and chapter-by-chapter synopsis.  This is the first time an editor at a publishing house will be reading my work and I sure hope it makes a good impression!


This is such a big step! I've been trudging forward for such a long time now.  First baby steps, then more confident steps, and now I'm making strides. What aspiring author hasn't dreamed of getting her foot in the door?

This is all new territory for me. I don't want to go there without prayer support so I appreciate your partnering with me in this regard.  I'll be interested to hear your advice, experiences, and your own aspirations!

  5. Carla,
    I am so, so, so happy for you!! You have such a heart for others and for Him and are so unselfish and giving, that it's wonderful to hear that the desires of your own heart are coming to pass. I'm behind you all the way, dear friend, and promise to keep praying. I've been waiting for this news:)
