My first book signing for Rebekah Redeemed went well. We learned a lot and had a great time. Not a big crowd, but several people came on a very busy day for many. I sold more books than some do at a first signing and was very happy.
My daughter made a fabulous book trailer that I’ll be loading soon for everyone to see. We have a couple of things to tweak, but it made me cry when she showed it to me. She really captured the essence of the story. Can’t wait to share it with everyone.
Rebekah Redeemed can be purchased from awoc.com directly from the publisher, from amazon.com or at Barnes & Nobel. I have a couple of reviews up on amazon. Hope you’ll stop by and see them and order a book.
My next novella is a story about Simon Peter’s wife and what it must have been like to be married to him. What affect would Jesus calling her husband as an apostle have on her? What was her life like before and after?
I’m also planning a story about the woman at the well and what happened to her after she met Jesus.
What do we know about John and James mother? We know she asked Jesus to elevate her sons, but what else do we know? what was her life like? Her husband Zebedee and her sons were fishermen. How did her life change?
Another story idea I had is about a fictitious Egyptian woman who helps Mary and Joseph when they flee to Egypt to escape Herod’s wrath. What was it like for Mary raising her little boy, Jesus, for the years they lived in Egypt and how did they affect the people close to them? I love the ‘what if’ questions. That question keeps me full of new ideas.
I’m interested in your thoughts about these subjects. Feel free to leave comments on these and other women of the Bible we don’t know much about.
Have a great weekend everyone! Good writing. Good reading.
