Something New Is Coming
Sarah and Daniel from Bible Characters Through The Ages are talking, let’s listen in and see what’s going on?
“Did you hear what Jann’s agent wants her to do?” asked Sarah.
“No, what’s going on?” replied Daniel.
“Her agent, Cyle Young of Hartline Literary Agency, told her that two craft book publishers he met asked if he had a writer that could write a book on quilting and/or sewing.”
“That’s cool. What did she tell him?”
“She said that if he was asking, she was writing.”
Does she know how to quilt and sew?”
“Yes, I was talking to her the other day. She began to sew in third grade at school, then even took tailoring classes in high school.”
“Wow, that’s pretty cool. But, what about quilting?”
“She can do that too. A friend taught her how to make those tiny stitches needed for quilting. Then she taught herself how to put pieces together to make a bed quilt from a pattern in a magazine.”
Daniel asked, “So is she going to really write a book?”
“Yes, she already started on the first book. She’s calling it:
Beginners 7 Step Guide
“She hopes to make this a series.”
“What else can she do, beside regular sewing and quilting?”
“Jann told me she knows many hand sewing crafts. Knitting, cross stitch, counted cross stitch, embroidery, needlepoint, and candle wicking.”
“Wow, she knows how to do a lot of things.”
“Yes, and it will be great that they will be easy to read and understand. Mom said, that a lot of these crafts aren’t being done anymore.”
“That’s too bad. If she doesn’t teach people how to do them those crafts will die off. It would be a shame to lose the crafts our ancestors used to do.”
“I know. I can’t wait to get her books and see what I can do too.”
“Is she still going to write our books about the Bible Characters?” asked Daniel.
“She said she loves doing them, and will write them too. I’m so glad. I love the adventures she takes us on.”
“Me too. I wonder where she will take us next?”
