Well, I done did it. Yup, I took the plunge. Just like that. And it feels… feels… I’m not sure.
What did I do? I took my book manuscript and submitted it to iUniverse, a self-publishing company affiliated with Barnes and Noble. A really amazing investor footed the entire bill… I polished up the manuscript, filled in the online forms, and CLICKed myself one step closer to realizing my dream.
I’m excited. Where will it all lead? What will God do with this?
I’m scared. There’s something freaky about getting out of the boat and walking on the waves.
I’m confident. I believe in this book more than anything I’ve ever written. I believe it will touch many lives.
I’m tentative. I wonder if I’ll be able to pay back my investor. I wonder how God defines success on this one. I wonder whether this will ‘work.’
God knows, God knows. I got an email tonight, right after the momentous CLICK. From a friend and brother. Without knowing what I was doing today, he affirmed what I was writing and how instrumental those truths have been in his own life.
To think that while I was CLICKing, so was my buddy. I to the publisher, he to my heart.
