The story continues

Something scary happened on Friday the 13th. I am not a superstitious human, but for those who are, just keep reading 🙂 . I started the day groggily and dull like usual.  5:30 A.M. started off with a cup of coffee to prepare me for the day, so I wouldn’t silently kill anyone with my thoughts. I had great anticipation that it would be scary (in an exciting way) and knew it would put an additional layer of pressure on my already busy adventurous life. Just what I like! I drove to Fort Worth and met with my publisher, Amanda Thrasher, who owns Progressive Rising Phoenix Press, for lunch. The lunch meeting consisted of me getting a full traditional contract offered for the SECOND book!. Yep, that’s the scary part that happened! Might not be scary to y’all but for me it’s a new kind of scary.

I will be out of my comfort zone once again as I continue sharing my story of emotional stress, depression, and most of all success!  I agreed to sign the traditional contract and now the pressure is on to continue writing. I’ve already started it, so hopefully in early 2017 the second book will be ready! I am a tad nervous, but I am also super excited because I am in great hands. Amanda will be guiding me and she is the best role model out there! I also have fans who motivate me to continue going. So keep the motivation coming!

You are runaway amish girl, but my son just recently a couple of years ago became Menonite. You are out and I am in. I am a mother of 30 years old son who became truly religious an got fascinated with plain people lifestyle. If I will not support him, he will cut me off from his life. Emma dear, I pray and cry , asking God to show me the way. I am a Russian Orthodox beliver, I am a nurse, I take care about people. I don’t know is it a curse or blessing.In the morning I was trying to call to GMA to try my luck to talk to you. My house is open for you in New York. I had been in Missouri many times and I understand you so much, you can be my daughter , that I will never have.Please, let me know, you read my text written in tears. My son is going to be married, I need to talk to somebody who will understand both worlds. He is going to be married, but it is only sounds like that, I will tell you more. I need your advice, please.Here is my e-mail [email protected] I hope we can talk???
