I ask for your blessings and prayers today. I am finishing up A Guru in the Guest Room and it should be available for sale in the next two weeks. As a writer, this is the hardest part of the process. Writing, for me, is a joy, as I become an empty vessel for the words that pour through me. But waiting to get a proof copy in the mail raises my blood pressure. Why?

I got the proof copy yesterday but there are a few formatting issues. That means my editor has to fix them and upload the manuscript again and I have to go through the waiting process again. Once I approve it, it will be for sale immediately. But today I have to go to the grocery while waiting for the editor to get back to me. So nerve-racking I can’t even begin to tell you.
