It's been a challenge this year to get this fourth book of my Cottonwood Series and PG's Redemption Tales series written. It's oh so close now. Here's the cover.
We are in the editing stage and will be proofing during the next couple of days. Our goal is to have it available by the weekend in digital format. I'll post a notice here, on my Facebook Author page and send out an email to those who have provided me with their email address.
I know this book is out much later than we had hoped. Writing takes time as does editing and proofing. That is not counting what life throws at you and your family. Pastor George has had an exceptionally difficult year.
I'd like to take this moment to thank you for your patience as we worked to write Nell Shaw's and Timothy Dillon's story. It's our hope you will enjoy it and see God's hand in the writing and how the characters deal with what life throws at them. No one is perfect and these two are no exception.
Also, I've been remiss. I have not thanked any of you who have been gracious enough to post a review on any of my books. Please accept my apologies and know that each one, positive or not is very much appreciated.
There's always a, I won't say let down because it's not, when I finish writing a book. The creative work is done. Now the work, work starts. The people who help with the editing and proofing, and who I help in return deserve more thanks than I can ever give. As independent authors themselves, or the most part, many cannot afford to pay for professional editing and proofreading. Revenue from sales is simply not that great. We do our best to find and correct errors but some always slip through. In our rush to finish and release Redeeming Love the number of beta readers is fewer than normal.
One of the joys of our digital age is the ability to correct mistakes in the ebook formats as well as the Print On Demand files. I always welcome identification of errors by readers. For this reason I've developed a new page on my site. Errata Form gives my readers a quick and easy place to let me know about any errors they might find.
I thank you in advance if you choose to contact me with typos you might find. In the future I plan to give a small thank you gift of a devotion or short story only offered to those who fill out the form. With my focus on writing full length novels I'm putting the reward on hold. I hope you understand the delay.
Well, it's time to get back to Redeeming Love so we can release the Kindle and other digital formats by the weekend. Again, thank you for reading my books and if you've reviewed one or more THANK YOU EVEN MORE.
