I am so excited - my first book is now in the interior design phase. It is set to launch and go on sale 11/16. I am in an "is this real?" phase! I ignored my dream of writing for so many years - this year, 2018 - I finally felt such a strong burning desire that I did something about it.
Do you have something you've dreamed of doing, but pushed it down for years? I'm here to tell you that you can do it. It doesn't matter how old you are, your health situation, or your financial status. You CAN do it! With God, all things are possible. I'd love to hear about your dreams!
Here's a picture of my dream - the cover - and I will be holding the actual book in my hands soon!
Sharing a little book info here:
A delayed flight leaves Victoria and three unlikely strangers stranded for a night, but their encounter leads to unexpected choices for each one. Coincidence?
COMING HOME is Victoria’s story. She’s desperate to break the pattern of domestic abuse and fear as she visits an old inn she inherited years ago. She travels to the property with the intention of selling it and using the proceeds to start a new life.
When confidence comes from unexpected sources, a future free from abuse fuels her desire to start a bed and breakfast on the property. But her abusive ex-husband and frightening acts of vandalism threaten to destroy her paradise and push her back into the shadows of her old self. Victoria has everything it takes to become an independent, take-charge woman who refuses to cower in the shadows—will she be strong enough to withstand the fire?
Tammy Arlene, a past victim of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, is the ideal narrator for the characters in this story and a prime example of not only surviving but thriving in a life of her own design. She realizes that there are many stages involved in the healing process. The emotions and situations depicted in the stories are realistic, relatable, and encouraging to women who are considering making life changes and escaping self-deprecating situations such as abuse and low self-esteem. Tammy acknowledges her faith as the turning point in creating a better life, overcoming degrading thoughts, and changing behaviors to craft the future she was designed to have.
