Reflections of the Heart

Reflections of the Heart II

In a previous post I mentioned that I was putting scripture verses into my book. Well I did end up doing that. Not every chapter has them however. The book is currently available in Kindle format.

I am waiting patiently for the book to be available in paperback format which could take up to 72 hours or more.

It has been quite the challenge for me to create a paperback book through KDP instead of CreateSpace. When I heard that CreateSpace was gone and that everything was being moved to KDP, I think myself and many others panicked. We had to go to KDP and relearn how to make a paperback book. Thankfully, however, Amazon has made it pretty easy to make your book into a paperback. It just takes a while for their review process to be sure your book meets their standards is all.

But while I’m waiting for my book to come out in paperback, I’m reading things on blogging and on selling my books. It’s hard. There are so many books out there it’s tough to chose which one to read. Blogging For Writers, and Sell Your Book Like Wildfire are the two I”m currently going through. As writers we have to keep reading on various themes in order to keep growing in our field.

So far things are going well just a little slower than anticipated. But making the most of it.

Reflections of the Heart

Well, I pulled Reflections of the Heart from Amazon to add in Bible scripture. I have read book that have scripture verses in them that have always helped me and I want to do the same for others. But before I republish this book, I am going to go through and edit it again and make sure the scripture verses work with my story. I have a feeling I may end up deleting the scripture verses.

This was just something that I wanted to try so we’ll see how it goes. I’ll let you know if I republish it with the scriptures or if I decide not to.

What do you think? Do you like reading books that have Bible scriptures? Do you find they help you spiritually?

Colds All Around & Writing Going Slow

These past couple of weeks have been rough. My daughter caught a cold and had a fever and then my husband got sick and now me. I still have so many ideas in my head and writing I want to do, but my body is protesting and my mind is just like “Please! Let me sleep! I beg of you.” But it is hard to keep a writer down. My current project is for the Voice 4 Society blog. I am working on an article about losing my mother at the age of seventeen. I didn’t just “lose” her, it didn’t happen that quick. She went in to the ER because she was getting sick and was running a fever. Come to find out my mother’s gall bladder was full of stones and she was beginning to turn yellow. She went in for immediate surgery, had her gall bladder removed and then….BAMB!!!! We were hit with the news! My mother also had cancer. For the next four months, day and night, I cared for my mother most of the time until I became so sleep deprived I could not hear her cries for help in the night and my own health was not that great. I am writing a story on this and how God helped me through each and every moment and how He is still helping me to this day with the memories and with daily life.
