Preview of Things to Come

Our loyal readers who have followed our story know that Robin and I are working on finishing up our book, and will be self-publishing it as soon as possible.  It will tell the rest of the story of how Robin got from “Despair to Deliverance.”  We are grateful to those who have given us feedback that they are looking forward to reading the book.

An important part of the book writing and publishing process is editing.  I will have more to say about this, and about how our book is currently being edited.  But it is important to know that editing takes time.  While the editing process for the first five chapters is happening and Robin is working on writing the last part of our book, I have decided to tell a new story here on our blog for those who are interested….the behind the scenes story of writing our blog and our book.

Robin and I are newbie book writers, but I have to say it has been quite a process for us.  From the time we first talked about it until now, it has been many years.  I imagine anyone who has ever written a book understands that the entire process can take many twists and turns.  Ours certainly has.

So, loyal readers, stay tuned for more about Robin and I, and how we have gotten from an initial conversation years ago about the idea of telling her story in a book, to where we are now…getting close to actually finishing it!

    Way to go whoop whoop whoop 🙂
    As Maya Angelou said: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”. The therapy is tremendous. I have done that not once but three times in two years and I am happy 🙂
