I've decided that launching a book is like releasing butterflies (which is something we do around here). It's exciting, and those closest to you all gather around while the little bug dangles off your finger, stretching its new wings.
There are a few, precious moments where you pass the little fellow around, and then suddenly it flaps its wings and Whoosh! It's off and on its own.
And that's very much how it feels to launch a new book! It comes back proofread, and you gather around with the betas while it stretches its wings. They dry and get stronger, and flap a bit, and next thing you know the pages are as ready as they will ever be, and Whoosh! off it goes!
If you'd like to gather round and watch the fourth Milana Legend take off, you can find it here.
Oooh. That's a good one. To be honest, I was pondering Israel, and how hard it is for an entire nation of people to hold up their end of a covenant. Then I started wondering what would happen in a fallen world if the covenant were made with a single family? And then I really started wondering, what would happen when God's Son came to that fallen world, to die for their sins? A family that was really walking closely with God would recognize the Messiah they had been waiting for, and if they were in charge, how could the Messiah end up dying?
So, those were the questions I set out to explore when I started The Milana Legends. This was so deeply buried in my head, that when I chose the colors for the imperial family, I picked the same blue and white that Israel uses, without realizing it!
Ever read about a really amazing fictional dog and started to want one? Here's what our life with an Aussie is really like:
Sometimes I feel like a ping-pong ball. I have To-Do lists, but they get longer, and longer, and longer, crowded out by taking care of what's "urgent."
You know the urgent: Where are the band-aids? How do you spell ukulele? What's twelve times five? I spilled syrup on the floor! Has anybody seen the dog lately?
When am I supposed to pray, much less teach my children to?
