I have been super duper busy lately! So let me share with you a blog post that I wrote a while ago about the project I’m currently working on 🙂 Hope you all enjoy it 🙂
Has the good Lord ever made you wait for anything? Well, folks, I’m waiting right now, for a couple things, and let me tell ya, it’s tough!! 🙂 But I know that in the end, it’ll be so incredibly worth it 🙂
What have you had to wait for in your life?
Imagine sitting in jail, feeling like you’re rotting there, while waiting to get let out from that dark, grimy cell, behind black, steel bars that are keeping you there until the government thinks you’ve learned your lesson. This was such a case for Benjamin “Ben” Martin.
I know, I’ve now finished writing about the history of all the books I’ve ever written since I first began writing in my life (see category History of My Books above). But this book is special. In the past couple weeks, I’ve been thinking to myself about the writer’s block I currently have with the book idea I have listed under my “Current Project” page (see above for further details), “Crimson”. But I’ve also had a good idea that if I’m going to speed up my writing and publishing process once my husband and I have children and it gets loads busier one day eventually, I’ll have to get a head start now.
So while I’m waiting for my current writer’s block of my book “Crimson” to flourish away, I’m currently in deep revision of my first book I’ve ever written that was once called, “Life with Guardian Angels.” But now it’s called “Childhood Secrets”. And it is going really well!
So anyway, Ben Martin has been in jail for four years, now being let out. As a reader, you don’t know what he went in for or why he committed the crime. All you know is that he is now a free man, being led out of the jail gates toward a gray SUV where his friends, Cassie Dawson and Mike Bain, excitedly await! His friends are so happy to see him. They haven’t seen him in four years, but beyond that, they have been the only ones keeping in touch with him. Now Ben is a pretty decent guy, apart from the fact that he was once in jail. He comes from a good family; he’s a farm boy, too, and now things are about to get exciting.
Meanwhile, Jess Olsen Beckham had lost her husband to a terrible car accident two years before. She has spent the last two years in mourning for him, trying to move on in a life where her husband, Don, no longer exists. Now how sad is that. Writing the scenes of Jess losing her husband, it really made my heart heavy, just thinking about the complete and terrible loss and pain you would have from losing a spouse so unexpectedly like that. Jess has moved her and her dog, Frank, to a different place and is gradually starting to build a brand new life for herself, little by little.
Ironically, Jess is best friends with Cassie Dawson, and they have been best friends since seventh grade. She’s also friends with Mike. So when Jess steps foot inside her and her friends’ favorite taco joint, she is shocked to see Ben there with them, for of course Cassie never said anything, the matchmaker! All we know about this situation thus far is that Jess and Ben were once high school sweethearts, aren’t very good friends now, and didn’t talk at all during Ben’s jail sentence except for when Jess testified for him during his court trial.
Has this story grabbed you by the throat yet? 😉
So continuing on, as I conclude, this book will be an inspirational-based, romance suspense. It’s suspenseful, because in order to understand all the major facts of the story, we must peer into each and every character’s life, including the deep, dark secrets of Jess’s deceased twin sister, Lizzie’s past, to piece everything completely together.
That is all I will share about the book for now! 🙂 I’ll of course keep you posted gradually about it as time goes on.
Let me share one last thing for you. It is a gloomy day here in North Dakota where we live. It’s very rainy. There’d be nothing better I’d love to do than ——- no, not write ——– read fan mail! I know I am not a published author yet, but almost, so with that said, if you all have any questions, comments, or suggestions about writing, fun characters you like whether it be mine or another author’s, my blog, my life, your life, your passions and about you, or anything in general, really, please drop me a message to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org sometime!

All for now and wishing you all a blessed week,
