A book

Okay, so here's the deal.  Awhile back Opinionated Friend asked if I would be willing to be a part of a year long blog where 6 single women in ministry wrote a blog post, at least once a month, about life.  The idea was to read each other's stories, encourage each other and at the end of the year see what we had and maybe see if it could be published.  I thought it a good idea and jumped on board...never really thinking about the publishing part.

For a year, I wrote blog posts on there.  At the end of the year I had traveled a great distance in life, had some amazing and hard experiences and had made a major life change.  Opinionated Friend came back from her Roman Adventure and began to compile all that we had written (only 4 of us really kept it going) and started seeking a place for it to be published.  I'm going to admit, I'm not a very good friend.  I was skeptical about the chances of it being published.  Sure, I had written about my life but who would really want to read it?  Opinionated Friend pressed on, though.  She edited, compiled, searched out publishing houses, went to a seminar on getting books published and has spent hours and hours working to get this blog-book together.

The result is this:

Available only on Amazon, only for Kindle or other e-readers (IE, there is no hard copy book available).  I'm extremely proud of Opinionated Friend and all the work she has done and glad to have been a part of this project.  I can't take credit for anything other than having thoughts and feelings and writing them on a blog...which is now a book.  Crazy.
