The book is Launched

The book is Launched

I have to admit my stomach was churning as I got ready for the launch of Daughters of Deliverance.  My friend Dody helped me put invitations into cubbies here at Wind Crest. Daughter Sheila prepared the door prizes and decorated the tables.  She walked into the Lounge where the Launch party was held, carrying  a large bouquet of Proteas, the South Africa flower– a gift from my children. My son Mark came all the way from New York where he’d been on a business trip to celebrate with me. Two grandsons and their wives slipped in after we’d started, and my niece and her husband came.  About fifty friends from Wind Crest attended.

But what really is a launch party? I’d never had one for my precious books. I finally realized it was a celebration for me.A card I received says it all:

You Worked Hard…REALLY, REALLY HARD…

Put in the hours, battled the frustrations…

Gave of your blood, sweat and tears,

And now finally it all paid off.  Congratulations!

Reviews are slowly coming in on Amazon– which not only make me feel good, but hopefully will encourage you  to buy and read Destined for Royalty.  More about the book and the life of its heroine, Katharine Bushnell, another time.  For now, I just want you to celebrate with me that the ten-year project of research and writing has finally been  reached publication.  You can read more about  Daughters of Deliverance on Amazon’s book page.

 

 

 

 

 

About lorrylutz.com

My husband and I spent 22 years in South Africa working with African young people in South Africa under Apartheid which deepened my passion for the disenfranchised. During regular returns to the US I earned my MA in Communications at Wheaton Graduate School. Later I became head of publications for Partners International, edited quarterly magazine. In the 90s I directed the AD2000 Women's Track networking with thousands of international women leaders in Christian ministry. I have written/published ten books on missions, biography, fiction. Presently I have two biographical novels under contract about Dr. Katharine Bushnell, nineteenth century crusader against what is known today as trafficking. I was married to Allen, now deceased, my lifelong sweetheart. We had four sons,( one deceased,) one daughter, and 18 grandchildren. How can I help but praise God for the full life He's given me, and the opportunities even in my senior years, to live purposefully.
