And for the update, I get to fill in for a couple classes at Purdue next week. I love to teach and was thrilled to get the opportunity. I bug my contact there for slots in the fall and spring. I don't have a permanent one yet, but am excited about getting back into the classroom for at least a week...maybe longer. Never a dull moment as we like to say around here. Or as Eric said, there goes my margin. It's so big to start with :-)
And my Heartsong Presents Editor loved my revisions to Sandhill Dreams. I sent them in LATE last night, early this morning, and she was back to me this morning with comments on how much she liked them. Yeah! And I get to change the hero in book three. There was a supporting character in book two who wants some attention. A couple first readers noticed him, too, and kept asking if he could be the hero for book three. JoAnne agreed. Another big Yeah!
Love Inspired Suspense should have received a proposal for book 2/3 today. Pray that God's will will be done on that. I'm truly okay either way. I'd love to write the books, but if Krista says no, I know that means these other possibilities will perk up. I have a feeling I'll be busy either way.
I covet your prayers as I navigate teaching, writing a new book, and working on two more proposals over the next month. Oh and don't forget home-making, homeschooling, teaching Sunday School and a Ladies Bible study, etc. Margin? What's that!
