I'm so relieved and yet excited that my newest eBook for midlife Christian women is finally on Kindle. I love the cover, do you? (see photo to the right.)
I gasp when I realize how much work I put in over the year for a book Kindle suggests I sell at the $5 mark. And then, I only get a percentage for myself. If you ask me, no one has a right to complain about the content of something that cost them what they might spend in a dollar store.
Writing is something I do because I'm compelled to do it, not because it pays a lot. It's something God has called me to do. I work with him. We collaborate.
I always have a message inside that needs to get out. My compassion for women walking through similar trials drives me to put my writing into a manner designed to be helpful. I want at least one point to make a woman say, "That point gives me peace."
What the Book's About
The idea for this book struck me when standing in my garden one summer, overcome with emotion. I was at a point of weakness, feeling God hadn't given me the answers I was looking for. Alas, I was wilting. (Wilting is what happens first before a plant dies, by the way.)
This book talks about God's answer to me that day. I had to go on a journey to decrypt the message. That's one reason the book took so long to write. Decryption was a long process.
That being said, here is a sneak peak at some of the prescriptions I've discovered may help a woman prevent wilting or recover from it:
~ A prescription for wilting is being content. ~
~ A prescription for preparing to bloom is reviewing where God has you planted. ~
~ A prescription to prevent wilting is stepping out and trying adventures on your own. ~
~ A prescription for growing strong roots and buds is nourishing your mind, spirit, and body. ~
