Reflections of the Heart, Secret Anguish

And Around We Go!

Just last week I wrote a post about shutting down work on my second book Secret Anguish. Well, there have been a change of plans, which I didn’t foresee.

Just yesterday morning I heard back from a literary agent I contacted just last month, and they want to see the first three chapters and a synopsis for Reflections of the Heart (my first book). So what does this have to do with Secret Anguish? Well, I kind of mentioned that I was working on a second book in my query letter, so now I’m like, “Well, what if they want to see work on the second book too?”

And I kept praying about Secret Anguish and if God really wants me to work on this book or not. I keep feeling a draw to write it no matter how difficult it may be emotionally. (I’ll still have to keep a close eye on my mental health.) And I have a LOT of work to do on it. I’m still in the phase of gathering my sources.

So this whole literary agent contacting me asking to see more of one book, has really motivated me to move forward with another book.

We never know just how things are going to turn out when we have several projects going. It’s just amazing how God can turn things around just when you think you’re done with a project, he says, “No, you’re not finished. I need you to work on this and finish it.”

So here I go. I’ve sent off the email to the literary agent with what she’s asked to see. And I’m back hard at work, on Secret Anguish.

I hear my son in his room. He’s up so I must go for now.

Take care and God bless!

Camp NaNoWriMo

Camp NaNo Day 17

It’s 2:46AM Eastern Time and I am making headway on my second book, which I am not sure of a title yet. But it’s about my mental health journey. I slept most of Saturday due to med changes but it helped with my creative energy and I’ve been working for almost two hours straight on my writing and making some great progress. It is the 17th day of Camp this time around and I think I may finish the first draft of this book this month. I’m super excited! So far this book is titled God Never Forgets.

I have my first book out in paperback and kindle and will work on getting that into other formats in the near future. If you’re interested in that book it is titled Reflections of the Heart and you can order it here.

How are you doing this time around? Making any headway? Having any setbacks? I’d love to hear how you are all doing on your writing project.  Feel free to chat with me in the comments section or send me an email at jisoucie@hotmail.com.

Happy writing!
