Yeah, right. I'm busier than ever. With my new part-time job (which is actually two or three very long days per week), my kids' demanding schedules, appointments we're cramming in, my regular writing assignments, and trying to prepare everything needed for my editor to get going on my book publication, I'm whipped.
Summer is officially kicking my butt!
Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
But...I will be honest. For the past couple months I've been struggling with the decision to give up the FaithWriters blog. It's not that it's difficult, and I've really enjoyed it, but with everything going on, it was just becoming harder to focus. As anyone who updates his or her blog 5 times a week can attest, it takes a lot of brain power. And wanting to concentrate more on my novel stuff, marketing, and reviewing books for Faithful Reader, I just felt like the grace for the FaithWriters blog had been lifted off my life.
But I held on. I didn't want to let it go, so I kept plugging along, knowing I was disobeying God in a way, because I truly felt in my spirit it was time to hand it off to someone else.
Well, I finally decided to trust God and do what I knew I was supposed to do. I informed "the boss" of my decision, and also approached someone else (who immediately came to mind for the job) about taking over, and she accepted with joy.
And guess what? Not even a week later, I got the call from my agent telling me Oak Tara had offered me a contract for Mind over Madi.
Cooincidence? I like to think not.
Anyway, as of Monday, the blog will be in the hands of someone you probably already know. She has a true servant's heart and I have no doubt she'll do a marvelous job.
So...announcing the new FaithWriters blogger...
