Got this surprise email from my editor saying she was sending the FINAL cover of my book and asking if they were good to go to official PRINT🎉🎶⭐️🎉 I was so so so so surprised and happy when I saw it! I had no idea it would really change so much from the arcs and yet TA DAAAAA. LOOK AT THAT BEAUTY! . The #sheilaroberts endorsement on the cover with that font is just perfect, the spine color and my name with the match is just perfect, the tagline with the matches is just PERFECT. I just...am...so...happy. . Do you like it? What’s your favorite part of it? #grateful🙌
🎵 Heart don’t fail me now, Courage don’t desert me! Don’t turn back now that we’re here... People always say life is full of choices - no one ever mentions fear! Or how the world 🌎 can seem so vast on a journey... to the past!!! 🎵 • TODAY IS THE DAY! TODAY IS THE DAY! TODAY IS THE DAY! • I’m not even gonna lie to you, I woke up and started crying 😭 because THAT’S how excited I am to see the touring cast of Anastasia!!! @anastasiabway • The NY show was beautiful and I’m so glad I got to see it on Broadway 🎭, but I’m even more excited to see it again and this time with all my family! When I saw it last, only my mom and I could go and I think if you’ve ever experienced a good story you know... you want to share it with everyone!!! • What is a story (can be book 📚 , movie 🎥 , musical 🎵, etc.) that once you saw/read it, you HAD to share it with EVERYONE in your life??? (And yes, in case you were wondering, I am that annoying book friend who will nag you until you have read every book I’ve recommended to you 🤣)
From Verity Buchanan, Author: "I’ve been sharing a lot of small, “teaser” excerpts from The Journey. But what exactly IS The Journey? It’s easy to say that The Journey is a coming-of-age high fantasy. Or a break-away from the stereotypes of today’s fantasy stories. Or a contemplative novel focusing on family and wrangling with the deep issues of worth, love, and courage. But when I was writing The Journey, I didn’t know I was writing any of that. I was a sixteen-year-old struggling to make something coherent out of a messy, overdone draft that was half satire and half maudlin melodrama. I didn’t know that what I was writing could touch people’s hearts. Of course, it touched mine. I refused to believe that there wasn’t a kernel of beauty to be salvaged out of my 2013 hogwash. I just wasn’t so naive as to think that others would think the same. I had no conception of the reactions I would see. Beauty, they said to me. Over and over, I heard the same thing: Beauty. Your world is full of beauty. From a reader: “The deepest portion of your world is full of light. I feel like by the time it concludes, your characters will be blinded by it…” So, what is The Journey? It’s all the options I gave above. It’s a story tracking the journey of three siblings, inner journey and outer. And if you ask readers – well, it’s beautiful. Don’t take my word for it, take theirs. After all, I didn’t even know what I was doing." Follow Verity more updates on The Journey and stay tuned for the release! #christianfiction#yafiction#readgoodbooks#comingsoon#christianfantasy
"Webster put so many references to Scripture and stories in there, with illustrations, you feel like you've been to church after reading it." . This quote is from Jane Kirkpatrick's novel, One More River to Cross, set in 1844. . I can't say I've ever felt that way about looking up words in a dictionary, but then the times have changed drastically since then. Now, if I need to look up a word, I head to dictionary.com or even just Google it (my real dictionary is packed away at the moment). . How great would it have been to do our work and get a Bible lesson, all at the same time? . Oh, and I'm close to finishing this book! I need to know what happens!! . . . #faithwriter#hopewriters#christianwriter#christianfiction#christianauthor#amreading#reading#dictionary#bible#church#janekirkpatrick#onemorerivertocross#godisgood . .📷 canva
