First Internet Sale!


The excitement of selling your novel is extraordinary. I’ve had some “pre-publication-orders” from people who’ve read METAL MAN WALKING, but this morning a friend of mine from WordPress actually went out on a limb and purchased my novel, ANNIE DREAMING from directly. Now, that’s awesome. (Thanks, Michael!)

I realize that it’s hard to go out on that limb and buy a novel from some ‘unknown’ author. But, I can tell you without equivocation, that I’m a fine writer.

God gifted me with this talent, and I love Him for it. I thank Him every day – heck, almost every waking minute – with my love of language – yes, specifically the English language. I ask Him to help me be faithful in actually USING this gift!

I start STREET PREACHER on November 1st as part of NaNoWriMo 2012. I plan to write a rough draft of this new novel in 30 days. The aim is 50,000 words by midnight, November 30th, 2012.

Please pray for me!
