I walked back to my desk to be surprised by the new email that had just arrived in my Inbox. Ten minutes earlier I sent the email that I hoped would release me into a new life. With nervous anticipation I clicked on the email to open it.
Good morning Ian
This sounds interesting. I was the UK publisher for THIS PRESENT DARKNESS and PIERCING THE DARKNESS.
Can you send me the text?
Are you serious?
Hallelujah. I’m bouncing around the room with excitement. It’s end of day Friday and the weekend beckons.
As a write this post, it’s almost two years to the day since that email arrived. If you recall from my previous post in this series I mentioned I had been provided with an introduction to the acquisitions editor of a UK publishing house. In my proposal I made reference to Frank Peretti’s “Darkness” books playing an important part in my writing journey.
This is another one of those moments that some would call coincidence or luck, but I term a “God-thing”.
