Martin and I are meeting on it today. I am hoping to get the brunt of it together today for the proposal.
What I have come to realize is that within this blog there is probably 3 books alone! Let alone all the other stuff we still have to write!
I was telling Martin this morning that the first book is about Andrew and his journey here, through leukemia & the profound impact he had on people lives while here. That alone is a big ass book if I put in most of the hospital posts from here in the book. I don’t think we’ll be able to put in a lot of the posts since his ascension, that will have to be the 2nd book, unless I want the first one to be as big as War and Peace!
The 3rd book will about a mother’s journey through grief. Martin asked what about the father’s grief? I said, then get to writing it buddy! It’s my grief in the blog! :-)
So now I’m thinking we’ll have 2 book proposals right out of the gate! I think I will be ending the first book soon after his service or the memorial in Ireland, then put what I wrote on by his picture on his poster at his service “TO BE CONTINUED!” Then have the poem Jeremy wrote end the 1st book.
Second book will be ALL the signs and information he has been sharing with us. Maybe starting with the Christmas miracle he gave us.
Third book, our journey through grief & how to come out the other side of it. How to stay connected with your child when they cross.
Great thing is, is that all 3 of these books are pretty much written! We could have 3 books come out in a year without having to write anymore! Cool huh?
IT’S ALL GOOD!
Can’t wait to get my hands on the books! :-D
me too :D can’t wait to see them in print in the book stores on the best seller list whaaaa hooo
Connie – I haven’t commented much since you started writing, but I have been reading everything. It is my belief that these books will have a VERY profound effect on everyone who reads them. You are so good at telling the stories, getting your ideas across very strongly – I can’t wait for the world to read about your journey. I’m so proud of you for having the courage and the follow through to do this. All my love goes out to you and Martin and Andrew.
Been feeling Andrew so much this weekend – I got to sing Imagine at church today because the pastor was talking about peace. While I was practicing and recording the song, all I could think about was your book(s) and my experiences with Andrew. It was like he was standing right here in the room. My body was vibrating constantly, and I kept seeing things out of the corner of my eye. So much love and peace and power – it’s all good!!!
Let’s hope a publisher wants to get their hands on our books too!
Where ya been Leah? Glad to see you here! I am so glad you got to meet and spend time with Andrew. I know he was so very happy to meet you! You gave us a beautiful gift the song Let Well Being Flow. He would listen to it over and over again. I’m guessing he was in the room with you!
Thank you for commenting about the book. I really hope it will be an inspirational book for people.
BTW the Harmony church in Tampa postponed our show for Aug. due to the pastor being sick. Must be serious since the show isn’t till 8/03. I don’t know if they will rebook us. I guess there’s no luck with metaphysical churches either. SO I guess I’ll wait and see what Andrew has planned.
You are so good at telling the stories, getting your ideas across very strongly
Good for you having not 1, but 3 books ready to go! w00t!
Connie – Rev. Donna Jean from Harmony was diagnosed with liver cancer, and it has thrown the entire church into a tailspin. We have people from that church coming over to our little gathering, so it must be interesting for sure. Maybe they’ll get their stuff together and you’ll be able to go after all.
Unfreakin believable! Every church that wants our show has cancer issues! SERIOUSLY???????? What the hell is going on!?? The place in Hollywood’s pastor is dealing with either lung or liver cancer, the woman in contact with me there, her husband had a stroke! BUT the reason I’m not performing there now is because the board said NO to having us there and no reason given!!!! that pissed me off!
I am sorry to hear that about Donna Jean. They were very easy to deal with.
Seems to me that folks dealing with such a serious disease are the ones who need you the most Connie! Laughter being the best medicine and all that. And! Who better to commiserate about the cancer than YOU? Sounds like a ‘win win’ situation to me!
Oh well…. put it ‘out there’. If it is meant to be – it will be!
THANK YOU! Sounds like these people seriously need some laughter in their lives! What really pissed me off was the Hollywood place just sayin NO and giving no good reason for it! They are on my “list” that I get to turn down one day! It will be too late when I do make a name for myself. These places had their chance!
At least the Harmony one just postponed our show. I don’t understand how a church falls completely apart when the head pastor falls sick. Isn’t there back up? I wouldn’t think the pastor needs the extra guilt of feeling she left everyone hanging. I know they need our show and the revenue would help as well.
But it’s out of my hands and so I sit and continue waiting.
Yeah, it’s an interesting situation – Donna Jean seems to bounce back from the craziest stuff, tho – so who knows? WE know that laughter truly is some of the best medicine out there! And Connie – when you are on the flip side and get to say NO, we’ll have your back and say it too!!! I’ll try to keep an ear open for the happenings at Harmony and I’ll keep you posted on anything I hear that sounds like they’re getting their cr… stuff together.
Thanks Leah, I was really looking forward to it. They were very easy to deal with and was looking forward to meeting them. At least they said postponed. I will keep her in my prayers.
I wish you the best of luck on these proposals.
May your divine emissaries help you place these befor ethe right people a the right time! May you have more than one offer!
