This second shout-out goes to Sony Elise, who is doing the professional editing of my book. Sony is a homeschool graduate and has been an editor for magazines and books for almost 25 years.
Currently, she works with her brother, Israel Wayne, in a ministry called, “Family Renewal” and she also runs her own Christian editing business which she is working on building, Sony Elise Editing Services. For further details, you may follow the listed links. If you are looking for an editor, I highly recommend contacting Sony for a free, no-obligation quote.
Sony is a good friend and we have known her and her family since the late 1990’s which puts both of us closer to old age than I will admit! We try not to hold it against her, but she does drink her coffee black most of the time and listens to Southern Gospel music (which drives her brother insane). Sony does have a good sense of humor or I might be looking for a new editor at this point.
She writes words of encouragement occasionally at Defending Contending as well as on her own site Southern Gospel World. Although she can’t tell you how many home runs or bases stolen in the season, I am fairly certain she likes the Green Bay Packers as well just like J.L. Pattison! LOL
Thank you for your help, Sis. Sony.
Here is the full quote by C.T. Studd, British Missionary
Only one life, a few brief years,
Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill.
living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what s done for Christ will last.
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” George RR Martin
I am very excited to share the news that I am working towards the completion of my first full-length book. The title is still a work in progress, but tentatively, it will be “True Heroes of the Ancient World.”
The book is a compilation of personally authored stories designed to attract young and old readers alike. While geared toward those with a Biblical worldview, the accounts are designed to capture the attention of any reader. Each story takes a Biblical account and seeks to bring it to life in a way that does not detract from the original, but also reinforces the principles of life found in the Holy Scriptures.
It is my hope that you will take the journey with us as we move toward a completion date. Up to this point, the book has an illustrator who is providing beautiful pencil drawings for each story, and also a professional editor to ensure that the book is readable with no grammar or spelling or contextual errors.
Climb aboard as the train gathers steam toward the horizon where A New Book is Dawning.
