Announcement, Announcement, Announcement!

SophiesQuest_FRONT-COVER-400At Camp Mission Meadows, when someone was going to deliver a big announcement, we would sing the word three times. So, go back to the title, please, and try to sing it in a sing-songy voice. Altogether now! There–I knew you could do it!

Sharing the cover of this book is a big announcement for me, and something I’ve dreamed of for almost 15 years!

Many of you saw this on Facebook or Twitter yesterday, but I’m so excited that I don’t want to miss anyone.

I’m working this weekend on the book edit, so this post will be short and sweet. I just want to thank the amazing British children’s book illustrator, Maggie Kneen, for doing such a great job, and Jo Holloway of Sunpenny, for believing in this book and bringing it to life. Stay tuned for more announcements about exact release date, ordering information, etc.

If you are in the Seattle area, please stop by the Burien Library on June 13th at 3:00 for a short presentation on my writing journey and a short reading from the book!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!



For friends new to this blog, “Wednesday’s Word” is a weekly Bible audio clip that rotates between Genesis, Luke and Psalms. Occasionally, I post “Wednesday’s Word to the Free,” a short Bible passage on what it means to be free. Freedom is a very big concern to Timley Mouse, the tiniest character in my upcoming novel, Sophie’s Quest. On Sundays, I post an article-type post on themes in the novels: faith, friendship, diversity, etc. Please join in the conversation!

Notice: Wednesday’s Word is taking a bit of a hiatus so that I can be editing and otherwise preparing for the book launch in June. See you this summer!

The Sunday posts will continue on their regular schedule as long as I am able!
