Another Step Closer

My book, Heaven Shining Through, is inching closer and closer to reality. The galley proof has been sent back and I updated the cover design.

While I’m getting excited about adding “author” to my resume, I share this because you, readers, were very much a part of this venture right from the start. Thus, I want to keep you in the proverbial loop.

The underlining theme of the book is the restoration of a relationship between Sam and her mother. It was told through the prism of a flashback to Sam’s life — her early home experiences, her wilder side, meeting the love of her life, Chad, her growth as a wife and mother through sorrow and blessings, and the presence of God in an ordinary life.

I tried to keep it real with appropriate language and activities. I purposely stayed away from being “preachy” but rather told a story that showed the presence of God in everyday, sometimes messy lives. The hope is readers will be able to see that.

A lot of the activity takes place in the greater Paterson, NJ area, which, of course, is where I called home as a youth. Some of the backdrops will be familiar to fellow Patersonians who grew up in the mid 60s.

I haven’t coordinated a launch date yet … that should be coming soon. I know it will be available online and I am planning book signings and presentations, at least in Maine, New York and New Jersey. I’ll keep you posted as they develop.

In the meantime, you can pre-order a copy of Heaven Shining Through simply by commenting and/or e-mailing me at revblt@rochester.rr.com. I will get back to you when the book becomes available. No upfront charges will be made.

I have also launched a funding page at FaithLauncher, https://www.faithlauncher.com/projects/3320-heaven-shining-through, which will help determine the original print run.

I’m getting excited! I hope you are as well!

  3. Best wishes for success. Past several months have been redrawing 500 cartoons for a self publish effort. Taken 6 months, maybe 30 more now.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
