Why did you write the book?
All of the messages in this book were God given. When they first began to come, I had no idea there would ever be enough for a book. It took a period of years before I began to see that a book could actually be possible. After sharing these words with others, they convinced me that EVERYONE NEEDED TO HEAR HIS WORDS!
How many pages are in the book?
There are 133 pages of text and 12 illustrations. Someone whom I had never met before, but heard I was looking for an artist for the book, volunteerd to give her time and expertise. I think they add so much to the book.
How did the cover of the book come about?
A friend of mine who lives on my block used to be a professional photographer. She had taken a picture of a gorgeous sunset while living in Ireland and she offered me the picture for the cover of the book. I couldn't be more pleased!
Did you do the graphics for the book?
No, I am not an artist, but Hot Springs is quite an art community, so I called the local college here and asked if there was an art student who would like to do the illustrations for the book. As it turned out, she came to my door ready to go to work. She put in many hours working to get the images to match the text. I have been very pleased with the oucome.
How has the book been received?
People have been buying them, not only for themselves, but for friends and family. One person bought several for her Sunday School Class and I have gotten very positive and uplifting input from that. I am seeing, as people purchase the book for others, those people in turn buy them for their friends and family. One of the books was mailed to Santiago, Chili!
What kind of comments have you been getting?
I hear words such as, very inspiring, encouraging, uplifting, and even feeling closer to God than before. Those words are great to hear, especially to an author who has just published her first book and doesn't really know how it will be received.
