Tate Publishing Contract

Hello to everyone:)

I am so excited to report that I received my contract yesterday and will be ready to mail it back by the end of today. Once they receive my money and contract the ball will be rolling. How exciting is that!!!! I did ask about how long it would take and was surprised at the length of time but that's OK. Stacy my rep. said the book will go to editing the first of the year, then it will take about 5 months to create the book, after that it is about 90 days before it goes to press. So will are looking at about a year but it could be earlier just depending on circumstances during the year. I can't wait to share my book with all of you!

My Book is being Published!!!

For those of you who don't know I wrote a children's book a couple of months ago. I with the help of my wonderful father-in-law found Tate Publishing a Christian company. I sent in my manuscript 6 weeks ago and patiently waited on an answer. Yesterday at 3:00 pm a representative from the publishing company called me to let me know that they were going to except my manuscript and publish my book. I am so excited I could hardly sleep last night. As soon as I know more information I will let you know. I do want to first and foremost Thank God for the opportunity and then I would like to Thank my family and friends for believing in me.

Another piece of furniture finished

This is the second piece of Terry's furniture that I have finished. I am really excited because it looks really good especially when I put it in the boys room and decorated. I can't wait to finish the last piece and get all three pieces into their room. After that I think I am going to redo the boys book self in red.

Terry Lynn's Furniture

I have started to refinish a dresser and two night stands that were Terry's (my favorite father-in-law) when he was younger. I am pretty sure Debby said that Terry's mother bought them for him sometime before Debby and Terry got married. I just finished the dresser and started working on the two night stands. I wanted to share with all of you my finished project. I am really proud of the way it turn out. These pieces will eventually go in the boys room. Teddy Jo gave us a set of bunk beds so I am going to refinish them and they will also go into the boys room. Hope you enjoy looking at my new dresser:)
