Did you catch yesterdays post? Nothing like getting involved with a new story from the get go. Sort of like a short-term soap opera! A Dozen Apologies, has another post today! Check out Write Integrity Press for the scoop and don’t miss visiting here for the rest of the story!
The story premise: After coming to know the Lord, Mara Adkins feels compelled to try to right the wrongs she committed during her more manipulative days. And she’s got a LOT of victims to encounter. Yet God just might intend that one of them hold her heart.
- Chapter 2 is up today at Write Integrity Press, but there are a few other fun places to check out if you wish!
- Author Fay Lamb’s blog has an interview with today’s hero, David, an Air Force officer.
- I’m a guest on Kathleen Maher’s blog for the whole week! Find out how I got started on this writing roller coaster!
- Jennifer Hallmark – God’s Plans vs. My Own – on Pat Dyer’s blog.
- Betty Owens: What is a Novella?
These pages were directly following the ones in the prior post. I almost missed them because they were stuck together with some sticky residue. I don’t even want to know what that was.
From Mara herself:
It’s comforting to know that I’ve always been perfectly right about one thing: I’m not a baker. And it’s a good thing, too, because not only do I hate baking, I absolutely LOVE cake.
Like Italian Cream Cake.
Or Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Icing.
Or Boston Cream Pie. (Which is technically a pie, but really a cake undercover. Trust me on this.)
I think after this debacle, but before I hit the road again, I better run another few miles and fill up with a salad. Judas, I mean Jared, and his double-cross, will not make me gain a single ounce. Of that, I’m certain.
What I’m less certain about is all of these men I need to speak to. Half the time I’m throwing my head back like an arguing teenager. “Don’t make me do this.” The other half of the time, I’m sure I need to follow the course. The men all need closure I guess.
Whether they know it or not.
And maybe, just maybe, God will use me to urge one of them in His direction, like Jenny and Garrett urged me.
That would make this trip southward worthwhile, but I won’t be sorry either way. Wait. I will be sorry, just not regretting going. Regardless of what happens—and I confess, my expectations are really basement level—I know I’m following what God has led me to do.
Now, if He would just lead me to a job that lasts a little longer than a day. Preferably one that doesn’t feed my cravings for junk food and sweets.
PS from Marji Laine: A Dozen Apologies provides a special treat—though not as yummy as Red Velvet Cake (and I’m such a fan!) but close—for the readers! You all get to help decide the ending of this book! Too much fun!
The way it works is: A new chapter will post each weekday at Write Integrity Press. Read the 13 chapters (from 12 different authors) and then choose the hero you like the best. The guy who gets the most votes gets the girl! Whoop! And as a bonus, the book itself, which will offer the only chance to see the final chapter, will be free over Valentine weekend! Win-Win!
