I'll bet some of you thought I had given up on getting my book published. Well, I will admit there have been times that I did. I do have a way to get it published, but it will cost me a little moolah. I had hoped I wouldn't have to go that route. But I am, it seems. I have several months of serious work to do to finish it, but I hope to do that this winter.
As soon as Don gets back to work, I plan to get right to work. I have made a lot of changes and additions since the first draft. One of the additions included a "reflections" section at the end of some of the later chapters. Here's where some of you come in, if you are willing. I would like you to e-mail me some of the thoughts you had along the way. . . in the beginning (pre-adoption), at the time the kids came home, when you were first aware of the challenges we were having, and any other thoughts you may have had that might round out the book. If you do this, that means you give me permission to use any of your thoughts, but I would contact you and give you the excerpt I would use pre-printing. It would be nice if you would make your comments right here...even responding to the comments of others. Just click on the "comments" at the bottom of this to see the comments of others. If you choose to use the anonymous box, sign your name at the end of your comment...unless you want to remain anonymous.
I can't tell you how much this would help me; and don't be afraid to hurt my feelings if you have/had a negative stance...that would make the book "real". I have been pretty candid in what I have already written. It has taken some courage to do that...who likes to admit their faults.
Oh, by the way, the book is written under a pseudonymn and the names have been changed to protect some who want it that way. Your input, encouragement, discouragement, enlightenment, etc. will be greatly appreciated. Also, I have changed the name to BRIARPATCH FAITH.
