WRITING TO HONOR GOD
I’m still actively searching for an agent or a publisher for my YA Christian novel. I continue my search because I am not a fan of self-published or Indie published books, but I’ll save those thoughts for a different post.
These suggestions might help you if you are on the same quest that I am.
When it comes to hearing God, I might be a bit dense. I’ve often told friends I am waiting for my fax from God. Well this week he sent a BOLT FROM THE BLUE.
I know God works in mysterious ways, and my on Tuesday proves it to once again. This week I was praying about finding a more recently published book similar to the one I have written. I had two hours to kill before teaching my monthly Bible study at a retirement community, so I went to a nearby library and selected several magazines to read. I sat in a chair in a quiet corner. After I sat I noticed a book on the table near me. I felt urged to look at it, but I thought, “Why should I look at this book? I can’t check it out. I don’t have a libary card for this library.” I looked at a magazine, but I felt someone telling me to look at the book. I put down the magazine and grabbed the book .”Twelve” a YA book published in 2007. A humorous book. The story told by a twelve year-old-girl with a sassy attitude. A book similar to mine. Do you think God put that book on the table for me? I do.
I plan to read “Twelve,” contact the agent and hopefully have a successful query.
Even if this agent’s query goes into my reject file, I am still encouraged because this small help from God reminds me that God represents me and my labors. Whatever I do for him is not in vain.
Keep praying. Look for God’s answers.
