Hope Springs Eternal…

And so all my hopes and prayers and sweat and tears have finally roiled themselves into the story that forms my first published novel, There is Love. Published on June 30th from Abbott Press.

In all these years, I’ve chased ideas through words and sentences around the page, I’ve flung out scenes and settings at unwitting writing groups. I’ve marched drafts before fellow travelers such as editors and classmates. Crafting my wilting pages to obey the warpings of constant critique and rewrites.

And now it is DONE.

For better or worse, it’s in the public eye.

Is it THE END?
Of my writing? NO!
Of this book? Not quite.

Now LET THE MARKETING BEGIN!

The fourth wall…the reading by others…the critiques of buyers yet unspoken who make their approvals known in substantive support at the bookseller.

MARKETING is, of course a horse of a different color!
