A Pleasant Shock

Standard

I had a pleasant shock today.  Daughters of Deliverance  rated ONE out of Amazon’s  top 100 free Inspirational Fiction books.  There’s still time for you to put Daughters of Deliverance  on your Kindle for  free through January 31. I check those numbers every day and there were days when it didn’t rank at all in the top 100.You can always buy either Kindle or print through Amazon books.

Publishing a book includes leaving yourself open not only to criticism but to undeserved praise.  I’m so thankful for the more than thirty readers who’ve taken the time and made the effort to write a review on Amazon. ( I need more! )

Here’s an example which encourages me to do all I can to see that  The Queen’s Daughters is published September 1,2017.

Although this is historical fiction set in the late 1800’s, the issues are as contemporary as today’s headlines. This is the story of Dr. Kate Bushnell, whose deep and authentic compassion for exploited women is matched only by her unflinching courage in the face of opposition. A good read. I’m eagerly waiting for the sequel, “The Queen’s Daughters”, which will complete the story of this extraordinary life.

I received a review that excited me several days ago which  opens up a whole new readership I hadn’t expected.Since teen-agers are so worldly-wise these days,they would understand  Kate’s passion to release women from sex-slavery.

While I was staying at my grandmothers house, I read your book ” Daughters of Deliverance.” I want you to know that I really like it and I think that you did a really good job writing that book.  I can’t wait for the sequel. Henna, 16 years old. ”

Since teenagers are so worldly-wise these days,they would understand  Kate’s passion to release women from sex-slavery.This  opens up a whole new readership I hadn’t expected.

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.
