Debut Children’s Book Coming Soon-Character Reveal!

The Journey to my Debut Children’s Book

It was a sixth grade poetry competition that initially sparked my interest. I won, my mom bought the book and life continued.

In college I revisited the idea of writing for a living, but never followed through for one reason or another.

After graduation and upon entering the workforce, I began writing as a hobby. Dating my stories and revisiting them. Revising and editing them over the years.

So much so that I’d acquired a collection of journals. Eventually, I transferred everything over to a google doc and still, I did nothing with them. 

That is until March 2020. 

The desire to author children’s books was still a dream of mine and it sounds crazy, but in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, teaching from home, with so much uncertainty. I decided to go for it.

I submitted my very first query. A couple of months later, I started my blog and today , even though I never heard a word back from the publishing house I submitted to, my very first children’s book is in its final round of illustration edits and heading into the coloring phase. 

I have more to say, but for now, I’ll leave it at this:

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.

Proverbs 16:3

A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. 

Proverbs 18:16

What are some of your go to scriptures that encourage you while you pursue your dreams?

Oh! and Happy National Author’s Day!
