Tom's Tardy Toot

Dear Christians Who Write:

At our November meeting I shared that my testimony, "A Worthwhile Life", was published in the book, His Forever: Stories of Real People Finding Christ. I got my copy just prior to our November meeting, but I didn't tell everyone.

I entered a contest sponsored by Adams Media in December 2005. I found out last March I'd made the first cut, and in August I was informed the book would be published in November. After getting my complimentary copy of the book I got my $50.00 check. PTL. But I couldn't have done it without you!

An RCWW group critiqued my testimony. Tammy Belcher took a special interest in my project and gave further detailed critiquing and editing. The editor at Adams Media made several changes in the arrangement, but little editing of content. Thanks to Tammy and all that contributed to my getting this piece published. I pray my testimony will touch and change lives.

My appeal to you who are submitting and not getting published is that in the writing business no one does it alone. We need each other. And as we enter 2007 I am going to push (in love) for more critique groups and to expand our Marble Mover program. Congratulations to those Marble Movers who did get published for pay in 2006.

Pray for me as I pray for you.

In His Service,
