A Summer to remember for always

Okay, so, somehow it just hit me that September is here. SEPTEMBER, Y'ALL! I honestly don't know where the time has gone. So, so much has happened. I fell like this was that one, last, delightful summer of childhood before adulthood comes knocking. It's been precious. Beautiful. And a summer I'll never forget.



I've learned many new things, and I've had to let go of the old and familiar. I've glimpsed new horizons, and been made aware of new dreams that I have. But most of all, God's been teaching me that His timing is always the best. And that hasn't exactly been an easy lesson to learn, but it's been the one that I needed to learn the most.

Our house has sold, and my family is currently in the process of finding another home. I graduated highschool, and am working toward entering college next year. And I've also gotten very behind on blogging. Which I do apologize for!

And that brings me to my next point. (Did I even have points? This was more like a ramble of what's been going on lately...xP)

After a rather long, sorta unplanned blogging break, I'm back! During the weeks I've been away, I've gotten many new ideas and inspiration for blogging, and I can't wait to share it with you all! First off, the nest couple weeks I'm going to be doing a small blog series on a topic that is very near and dear to me, both in my writing and in my everyday life. So I'm excited about that, and hopefully you  are, too! And then near the beginning of October, I've got a bit of a surprise for y'all.

On the writing front... things have been going well! A Question of Courage has been gone over by beta-readers, and I'm about ready to start the next edit before sending it to an editor. . . and then from there I'll give it one last edit, and then it's on to a proof copy! The release date for it, as of now, is November 3rd. I'm still hoping for that, but we'll see. I've gotten a bit further behind then I would have liked with it.
Also, As in Olden Days the Christmas Prequel to A Question of Honor that I wrote last year, is going to be published as an eBook and special edition paperback on October 10th. So yes, I haven't totally abandoned writing while I've been gone. ;)

And...I think that's all for right now. Thank you guys so much for bearing with me in the craziness of life these past few months. I'm so looking forward to being more active in the blogging world again!

God bless, and I hope your summer was every bit as memorable as possible. :)

  3. Welcome back! :) New books, how exciting! I too have gotten behind on writing and publishing things. :P I guess that means we'll just flood everyone with new books at the end of the year. :)

  5. Welcome back, Jesseca! I'm so proud of you and all that you've worked to learn from the Lord this past summer. I know it has not been easy but I also know you were willing to learn, and a humble and teachable heart is by far one of the greatest things you can bring before the Lord. So I'm proud of you. :) I'm excited to see what your new blog posts are about and congrats on almost having QoH done! <3 So proud of you!
