Last week was quite a week. On Monday I sent a query letter to DEB HAGGERTY at ELK LAKE PUBLISHING. She responded and sent me the material I needed to fill out for the proposal. Tuesday I sent all of that to her. Then Wednesday, Deb offered me a contract. She called and answered some of my questions. Then I received the contract on Friday. I sent the signed contract and other paper work to her Saturday.
So, PRAISE GOD!!!!! I now have a publisher, contract and a new agent, SHAWN KUHN of the SUZY Q AGENCY. This is all so amazing. I still can’t quite take it all in.
The contract is for the first three books in “Bible Characters Through the Ages Story #1 Adam in the Garden, Story #2 Meeting Eve, and Story #3 Watching David and Goliath” These are all working titles. The editor can make new suggestions for the titles.
Here is a little information about the series:
“Bible Characters Through the Ages”
Two time traveling children want to meet the historical figures of the Bible starting with Adam, but in the past they lose their time travel machine. Can they find their way back home before time has changed? Then, can they return to meet another historical figure of the Bible? Read “Bible Characters Through the Ages” the series to share their adventures.
I first learned about writing groups and conferences when we moved to Florida 6 years ago. I have been working and learning so much about this new career of mine. Who would have thought that God would have me writing for kids at the age of 65? Surely not me, but I am blessed to be able to do this.
He also has me doing workshops for the Florida League of Christian Schools conference. My workshop is on helping children become better writers. It’s a fun event and I meet a lot of great teachers, principals, and administrator’s.
Have you ever thought about writing? Please do it. How can I help and encourage you?
