New Year - New Vision

Well Friends, I've jumped off the deep end.

No, I haven't lost my mind yet - or maybe I have LOL!

What I've done is quit my job.

Now before you start worrying that I'm going to lie around and cry my life away, let me reassure you that is not the case.

I've taken a GIANT leap of faith and quit my job in order to pursue this whole writing business (writing/editing/promoting/signings/sales/speaking engagements/etc) and with God's grace, wisdom, and direction, move into a new level.

One thing that encouraged me to do this is - back in October - Jo Anne Vandermeulen of Premium Promotional Services contacted me about working as an associate for them. I said yes. Very excited with the results I had part time, I feel God is leading me to be available full time and that this is a good time to pursue my lifelong dream of working from home.

PPS's motto is "You Write, We Promote" and believe me, we stand on what we say. Jo Anne is wonderful about working with each individual author to design a promo package to fit his or her needs AND budget.

Oh and join me TONIGHT 8pm CST as a guest on Jo Anne's radio program “Authors Articulating with Jo-Anne Vandermeulen”

I'm also doing editing and writing on my own. Each project is different but if you need help with your manuscript contact me and let's see how I can help you!

Along with my work for PPS and writing/editing jobs I pick up, I plan to really focus on getting my own books out there through signings, speaking engagements and phone calls and visits to libraries and book stores.

I know this sounds like I'll be really busy, and I probably will but one thing - the most important reason behind this decision - is to take time to heal from the loss of my beloved AND grow in my relationship with God.

Your prayerful support is greatly appreciated as I embark on this new venture and I pray that each and every one of you have a BLESSED and Prosperous year!

Until later....take care, be Blessed and remember....Man plans his ways but God directs his steps.

That does sound like a fun position.

Best wishes for much success!

You're one of the strongest ladies I know...it shows in your messages. Your belief is so strong and there's no better guide in life then God.

If we're quiet long enough we can hear what we're to do in life. You've stopped and really listened. It takes courage and determination, and...YOU have both.

I have no worries about you...I'm confident that you will succeed in whatever you choose.

Congratulations on taking this HUGE step in life...one that 'feels'right.

Sorry I missed your radio program last night. I didn't realize you were there until it was too late.

Is it archived somewhere?
