Daughters of Deliverance

Daughters of Deliverance

Writing a book has many stages — but  the most difficult for me  is to promote the book. Selling anything is not pleasant, even when it’s as great as Daughters of Deliverance.

When my husband and I were in college (he wasn’t my husband then– not even my room mate)one summer  we decided to sell World Book encyclopedias.  You probably don’t remember those beautiful red bumpy- textured covers with a black and gold title.  They really were a great family product– full of pictures in the years before TV.

The training class was superb. It sounded so easy. Just walk up to the door and knock.  A harried housewife answers and you tell her about this wonderful product that will entertain her children by the hour.  And educate them at the same  time.The harried house wife goes back into her kitchen for the  jar where she’s been saving for “something special,” brings out $100, and you’ve made a sale.

No, it didn’t work like that. Instead I didn’t want to knock on that front door.  I even prayed that there would be  no one at home.  You can imagine that I sold very few World  Books.  To be  honest — none!  My husband made 100% more sales than I did. He sold one– and we quit.

That must have been sixty-eight years ago.  And here I am selling books again.  But this one is fun.  I wrote it myself about a  courageous, persistent, caring woman  who obeyed God by rescuing women from mistreatment and slavery. Readers are telling me they  can’t wait to read The Queen’s Daughters — the rest of Katharine Bushnell’s story — coming out Sept. 1

So glad for others who help sell my book.  Those wonderful reviewers who keep moving the Amazon algorithm up — how else can you get Amazon’s attention? And  I’m thankful for a very  young journalist from the Highlands Ranch Herald who took time to hear my story, and write it.

I don’t even have to knock on your door.  You can go directly to Amazon  to read it for yourself.

Sorry that you can’t read the article .  It’s really pretty good, except I have 18 grandchildren instead of 8. Couldn’t figure out how to enlarge the type.  Just trust me. It’s good

 

 

About lorrylutz.com

My husband and I spent 22 years 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 and edited a quarterly magazine. In the 90's I directed the AD2000 Women's Track networking with thousands of international women leaders in Christian ministry. I have written/published twelve books on missions, biography, fiction, most recently two biographical novels about Dr. Katharine Bushnell, nineteenth century crusader against what is known today as trafficking. Daughters of Deliverance and The Queen's Daughters are available in Kindle as well as print on Amazon. 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.

  1. Hi Lorry, I downloaded the book to my kindle and when I started to read it, realized the name Katherine Bushnell is very familiar to me. Have you heard of Dr. Susan Stubbs Hyatt. She was given the responsibility to the God’s Word to Women non profit. There is a website by that name, from Katherine Bushnell’s book. Also a facebook page. Dr. Hyatt is in the process of opening a center for International Hall of Fame of Christian Women in Grapevine, TX. She and her husband are very concerned about the fact that many women have been written out of Church History and they want to correct that. They also are teaching worth and value and authority regarding women.

    • Sorry I’m so late in responding. Yes, I’ve been in touch with God’s Word to Women. It’s interesting that there are a number of books about Katharine; some talk of a movie of her life. Hopefully my books will add to the information so she won’t be lost in history again.
