Hello, wonderful people!

It’s been a VERY long time since I blogged, and I apologize. I will try to get you caught up on everything in this post!!

I will start off by telling you about my summer. The first big thing I did after graduating was getting my hair cut! This was a major ordeal for me because I had not had short hair since 10 years ago! I ended up getting 12 inches cut off, which I donated to Locks of Love. My best friend, Virginia Dyer, supported me in this nerve-racking event. I can proudly say that I made it out alive and unscathed!!

Through June I mostly focused on editing Mark of the Corripian (it is, as of now, fully edited), and writing Book 2 in the Corripian Chronicles. In early July I went on a mission trip with my youth group to Honduras, where we helped build a house for a local family. I’ve always heard that going on a mission trip out of the country is an eye-opening experience, and I now truly believe that. It was wonderful to be able to see the way the Hondurans lived with what we as Americans would consider next to nothing, yet they were such joyous and thankful people. Their faith in God was also very inspiring and uplifting. Even when they had no food to eat, they trusted Him to provide, and He did.

Shortly after Honduras, I went on a second mission trip to Kentucky, where my youth group worked at Potter Children’s Home. This was also a great trip in which we worked to serve the families of Potter and to glorify God in our work.

Somewhere in between these mission trips and everything else that went on in the summer, I also got my cover image for Mark of the Corripian! Credits for this beautiful cover goes to Kathryn Kramer, my graphic designer.

It makes me so happy just to look at it, so I hope you all enjoy it, as well!!

As I said before, Mark of the Corripian has been fully edited. The next step in the process is layout (designing the inside of the book), which will begin in September. After that will be printing time!! We are hoping the book will be available for purchase on the publisher’s website and this website in NOVEMBER. That’s just in time for Christmas shopping!!

I promise to do a better job at keeping you all updated when I have new information. For one, I have some promotional items that are available for anyone who would like them!

Also, if you have any questions about me, the book, or writing, feel free to contact me at the same email! I would love to discuss any of the above with you if you are interested.

That’s all I have for today. I hope everyone has a safe Labor Day weekend.

Farewell to all,
