As many of you know, I was picked up by a publisher last fall. I did a Kickstarter at the beginning of the year to raise funds to get my book off the ground and with those funds I have been plugging away at the book. It’s gone through a bit of an evolution, but I believe that it is a good one. A different title than I expected and a much stronger theme.

My heavy lifting of the book was done the early part of July and since then I’ve been going back and forth with cover ideas and changes with my publisher and proofreading and tweaking. Yesterday I approved my final full cover and today I got the book in it’s full layout. I have breathed a few big breaths and have giggled with amazement that we’re even at this point.

It couldn’t have happened without you guys. The people that have walked with my family in our deepest grief and have stuck close to us when we were wanting to pull away. I am grateful for you. You have been gracious to us and Jesus’ grace has been evident through you.

I wanted to share this with you guys because you are a part of this too and you can share in the excitement with us.

    I am so looking forward to reading your book Michelle. I am a friend of Renee’s and somehow a few months ago I saw your book needed backing through her page. My family and I experienced a great tragedy a couple years ago and have been going through a time of deep grief. I want to hear your story so I decided to join in. I love the cover. It’s beautiful. I am looking forward to hearing what another lover of Jesus has learned through their darkest days when their deepest fears are realized. Thank you for sharing your story.
