It's Been A While

Sorry it's been so long since I have posted a blog! We have been busy with lots of going-ons around the Copeland house! Here is an update on Hope for Today: It is at the publisher's, and I have a lot of work to accomplish for it by mid-January! The estimated goal to have it be in stores is October 2012-January 2013. There are a lot of things that go into publishing a book. There are things I need to get done, things the publisher needs to get done. I can only imagine what the publisher has to do! I am looking forward to Hope for Today coming out! It is by far my best book yet! Of course, it is only my second book, but my best one! I am currently working on Yesterday's Hope, which I am looking forward to accomplishing. My goal is to have it done by May. That doesn't give me a lot of time since there is a good chance we will be moving between now and then, but I am going to work hard at getting it finished and sent to my wonderful editor. I haven't worked on it a lot in the last few months with the unexpected trip to Ca due to my step-dad passing away. And then picking up where I left off with the boys and school and the holidays and whatnot. Lots to accomplish!
If we do move, I am a master packer and unpacker! I have done it so many times in mine and Chris' marriage that it can be done quickly! :) That's good news! Then I can continue to work on Yesterday's Hope. I love this book and the main characters in it. I have added a new one as the main character. I love this guy! So, that is the quick update. Today, my middle kiddo is lying on the couch with the stomach flu. That is why this blog isn't detailed and pretty quickly written. For now, I wish you all the Merriest of Christmas'! May God guide and bless you beyond all you could ask, hope, or think! I will forever be, In His Grip!
