Greetings – and again apologies for lack of posts recently.
(If you want to know about it, overview at Smashwords where it is on sale during pre-release period. http://bit.ly/1LooWua )
I made a trailer for it – using the images from my very gifted ‘sister in Christ’ Lena and the awesome music of the gifted young ‘brother’. Levi.
The finishing of the draft for this third book was ‘bitter-sweet’ – for want of a better way of thinking of it. The people in this series of books were family members to Geoff and I, LOL and it was a while before I could read the draft without crying, as I remembered some of his comments, and our discussions.
One day I will tell him how I solved the problem of how to bring something to a conclusion. (If we will still be interested in such things when we meet as spirit beings.)
In the meantime, I am again facing the aneurysm problem. The very complex graft that was made for most of my aorta, has a leak. It looks like the surgeon who did the ‘procedure’ took me off his follow-up list. But a different test revealed the leak, and a cardiologist referred me to another vascular surgeon – who referred me back to the one who did the surgery. (I see him as a private patient next week.)
When I was shown the leak ‘live’ on a CT scan my first thought was ‘Praise God for His mercy, that Geoff is not here to go through this again. People who knew my husband knew how that period of waiting for someone brave enough to do the operation, the wait for the graft to be custom made, and the recovery time – scared him. Yes, he trusted God… but did not know what God’s will was.
So, this has been a busy time. Between the book, the trailer, pillar-to-post appointments… and trying to set in place arrangements for what will happen if this cannot be fixed.
So, before I finish…. credits.
Mariela. (If you need an awesome editor/encourager then you will find one here.) http://www.asapediting.com/
Lena. (Not only the covers of all three books in the Apostle John series, but also the images used in some of the slides on the trailer.) Her Facebook site, Lena’s Lens Photography is https://goo.gl/DOImYA
John. As well as encouraging, has done all the re-sizing and text on the covers to meet the exacting standards of eBook covers.
Levi. Who has allowed me to use two of his compositions – and the sound tracks for the two trailers. One for Hold the Faith and the other for The Light of Truth.
And also the readers who have encouraged me.
I am also ever mindful of the scripture in 1 Cor 4: 7 part of which says… “What do you have that you have not received.”
I praise God for His gifts, for His faithful ministers, and the love and support of His gifted people.
