An Interesting Email

I recently received an email from Jaqi Wade, author of Jenny's Daughter. It was both heartwarming and tickled my fancy at the same time, and I have asked (and received) her permission to share it with you.

I've Read It
Finally - for the first time since I sent the manuscript to you! During the editing I only read the edited parts. Because so many friends and family have told me how much they've enjoyed my story, I had to find out what they were talking about.

Last Sunday before his sermon the minister put the front cover picture on the screen and walked to where I was sitting, asked me to stand, and praised the book. Several had already read it as have several at the Mesa Sr Center on Macdonald where I volunteer. I'm even getting FB notes from family and friends and even some guys have complimented me.

I decided to read my story. I'm so impressed with your editing and how you let the story unfold! I've sort of played with the sequel "J's D - Leftovers" and now have a better idea of what to write for the years since 2000. IF I ever finish it, I'll need your editing skills.  Gratefully, Jenny's Daughter, Jaqi

This is why I became more than an author. This is why I expanded and became a publisher as well. So that I could help others to achieve their dream. So readers could have wonderful stories that were beyond my scope as a story-teller. To put good works in the world by serving authors and readers at the same time.

  1. I love that you are working to help other writers achieve their dreams. It's so important to reach out and lift one another.

  2. It's been more than a year since I first posted this blog entry, and I'm still in love with my job as both a publisher and author. I'm still looking for new things to publish, and giddy with the joy helping others brings.
