2 Separate book ideas--1) Understanding some of the nuances about the faith that leads to miracles (I know that doesn't sound very original in this venue, but I've got some good ideas)2) Gratitude is the a deeper subject than we generally make it. Deepening our understanding of gratitude connects us more fully to God and leads to greater fulfillment.

My publisher told me recently that many major publishing houses are NOT picking up books/manuscripts unless the book has previously been self-published and proven successful. With the surge of online publishing (blogs, social media, etc.) they often want you to also have a huge following in place to help promote the book before they’ll pick it up. These are just a couple of great reasons to self-publish and thankfully Leslie is an amazing guide!
Lucas H. Davis
01:27:39
Good to know.I have friends writing trilogies, but I would rather write novellas for ease of internet (e-reading).
Matthew Pilling
01:28:33
Where is the line between polishing/perfecting and never getting your book out there?
Samuel
01:28:56
The miracles is what I want.
Diana
01:29:09
Thanks, Stephanie, for the tip!
Lucas H. Davis
01:29:25
Set a date and get it out. Otherwise, the book will be delayed forever trying to polish it.
