A few months ago, I attended a meeting of local writers. Since I was new to the group, I was allowed to talk about my journey in becoming a published author.
When I mentioned WestBow Press, another author interrupted with a challenging question: “Why don’t you do it yourself?”. My answer was immediate: “I can’t do everything on my own.”
Later, I realized the honest truth about my publishing experience. My book was a labor of love. It was created after many hours of prayer and soul searching. In many ways, it was like giving birth. As usual, I began to think of all the things I should have said in that meeting. The basic fact about my story was this: I couldn’t be careless with God’s creation.
When I signed a contract with WestBow Press, I wanted, and expected, professionals to guide my steps. There was still so much I didn’t understand about the literary world. And I must say…I was not disappointed with my decision.
God has not given me every gift necessary to create a finished product. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years…it’s the importance of team work. Jesus worked with a team of twelve disciples, and when he sent them out to spread the Word, they went “two-by-two”.
I consider myself on the same level as a disciple, because I’m still learning. Time doesn’t change the basic principals of learning. When I want answers, I always search for the truth. So, I take this time to say,”thank you WestBow Press”. I wanted the best to guide me along this path of discovery, and you earned my trust.
