First, two of my children's stories - one titled "Jeremiah Speaks God's Word," the other "In the Master's Vineyard" - were accepted and recently published in an anthology.
A Child's Book of Bible Stories, a 10x10-inch hardcover book, features bright full-color illustrations and thick glossy paper. The beloved My Bible Friends series of our childhoods doesn't cover all our favorite Bible stories, so hopefully this book will fill in some of the gaps.
A Child's Book of Bible Stories is available now from Gospel Publishers.
The book is now in the hands of my editor. Whew. What a freeing feeling. No more tweaking phrases or moving around commas until she's finished. It's her baby for a while.
I'm on the fence about a title. The one I chose years ago...well, I googled it and found out it's slang for something I want no association with. Tentative titles are Beyond Bucharest or possibly View from a White Horse. (That last one comes from a Romanian proverb I happened upon in an out-of-date tourist guide book and fell in love with.)
It's exhilarating to go public with the project. Almost as though, if I say it aloud here, it might actually happen someday. I'll keep you posted!
