If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that I have been withholding some exciting news. I know what you might be thinking right now... "How can anything be more exciting than the release of her book?" ;)
Well, this news is pretty much just as exciting (and maybe a smidge more) and I am happy to say that the time has come to reveal my little secret...Yay!
Long Story Short...or maybe just the long story:
When I received the email from Cedar Fort Publishing that said they would not be able to publish my memoir, I was crushed. However, they did have some very positive things to say, including mentioning that they were interested in learning more about an idea that I had for a journal.
That's when I turned to my good friend, Jenn, over at J*Doodles. I love her work and...well, everything about her really, so I knew that I could not move forward with this project without her talent and creativity. (We share the same crafting/creative disease and our brains work well together.)
As we brainstormed and discussed our visions for a journal that would help people heal from hard times in their lives, our excitement flew through the roof. We worked for weeks, putting together a proposal that we hoped would pass the editorial board. Then I hit the send button. It was exciting and terrifying at the same time.
A little over two weeks later, I received the "golden email"; the one that said, "Yes! We would love to publish your journal!"
I may have cried a little...or a lot.
And so this new adventure begins. God's hand is in the details and my hope and prayer is that I can be the instrument that He needs me to be so that this journal will be able to reach those who need it.
I am loving my second chance at life.
