What an amazing trek this has been so far! I thought writing a novel was challenging (and it is!), but add to that the process of producing a published product, and you’ve got the mixings of a perfect storm.
Thank God for Josh, whose enthusiasm and creativity (not to mention ridiculously generous spirit!) produced the stunning book cover designs you see for both Gideon’s Dawn and Waymaker AND this very website at which you are now looking.
Funny thing…I tried for two years to get a traditional publisher or an agent to take on these projects, and got no love back. (Well, not exactly no love…some of the agents I talked to were very kind and helpful, but in the end they still said no.) But the very week I finally decided to publish the books myself, Josh contacted me offering to help. And not just Josh—Lisa and Marcy too. And then a little later, Kristen. Did I say “funny thing”? No…definitely a God thing.
"...a work of extreme depth and breadth of vision."
