Matthew 17:20, my favorite verse. "... If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

Thankful for my Readers

Today I'm counting my blessings. As some of you are aware, Coveted Bride changed to free on Kobo last week which initiated Amazon to match their price. The funny thing is, I never authorized Kobo's free price. But I as I worked to correct the error, I saw it as God's blessing. It drew more readers to my work, a lot more readers. As of now, Amazon has given away over 21,000 copies!

And because of that I've met, through email, some very nice people who enjoyed my work. One of which offered her opinion of the cover, another offered to help with my editing.

The world of writing has opened up doors to allow me to see so much good in others. Yes, at first it took a thickening of my hide, but once I grew past that I was able to see the overwhelming graciousness in others that encourage me each day to continue on the path God has set me on.

Thanks to all of you that read my work and share it with others. You're as much a part of this as I am!

For anyone wondering what happened to me--I'm still here. I haven't posted for a while because I'm trying like mad to finish the fouth volume of The Ozark Durham Series by November. It's 50/50 whether I'll make my self-imposed deadline or not.

The weather has been so beautiful here in Missouri it makes it hard to want to stay indoors to write. It makes it hard to want to stay indoors for school as well! You know you're in trouble when you look out the window and would rather be ranking wood for the winter than anything inside the house.

My family and I went to tour the Meremac Caverns this week. For anyone interested, be ready to shuck out some cash. For our family of four, it cost us $70!!!

It was very interesting along with the history involving Jesse James. And though I find caves fascinating, the outside air never smelled so good as when we stepped out of the cave.

More than anything, I think the drive was worth it all. Breath taking hills abounding in color, you won't regret the time spent on the road this season of the year. Especially if you make a few wrong turns, *like us,* we enjoyed it all!
