It’s a Book!
I’m excited to say that this morning I received an email from my editor at 4th Dimension Press that my manuscript has been edited, and has been forwarded to be typeset. In other words, my manuscript is now a book!
It’s been quite the journey, and I want to thank everyone at 4th Dimension Press for their patience with me. I especially want to thank Stephanie Pope, my editor, who took the original manuscript I submitted and told me I could do so much more with it. At one point she asked me what kind of books I like to read.
“Biographies, and autobiographies,” I told her.
She laughed and said, “Then that’s the kind of book you need to write.”
The last thing I wanted to write about was myself, but I did. I wrote about my journey as a reluctant medium, and the lessons I’ve learned along the way. It’s a chronicle of my life; how I went from being skeptical, even cynical about psychics, to discovering I was one myself. It’s the story of how I dreaded the idea of never seeing my loved ones again after we die, to learning that death is not the end of life, love or relationships.
When Stephanie was editing my manuscript, she’d send me emails with the word, “manuscript,” in the subject line. This morning were the words “Your Book.” I couldn’t be prouder. Here are a couple of sentences from her email to me this morning –
“Your warm personality and caring nature came through. I found myself laughing and crying yesterday as I finished the second read.” (emphasis mine)
Thank you, Stephanie, for all of your hard work, and for making my manuscript … a book.
I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please leave a comment below.
