Sometimes life has a way of dictating what it wants us to do. Right now, for me, life is dictating. I had hoped to have The Scent of Soul ready for the public by mid-October. I am now crossing my fingers that it will debut by the end of October/beginning of November. My ARC showed up with the cover way too dark, forcing us to find a solution. Unfortunately, the simple solution isn't always the way it works out. Also, my husband and I, and our five children, are in the throes of the grand adventure of moving. Ugh! For all of you who have moved (that encompasses a vast majority of you, I'm sure), you understand my groan. And, to add insult to injury, my husband decided to get sick. I know, so sweet of him. Love you, honey.
However, I did want to let you all know that the book trailer for The Scent of a Soul is just about complete and ready for viewers. My sweet friend and author of the Propheticus series, Emma Daley, has kindly taken on the project, and has done a wonderful job. I am very excited for you all to see it! (I promise to have more information on the book trailer in the very near future.)
To end with, though, I would like to share a quote that has touched me. Recently, I went to see the movie, The Words. I enjoyed the movie very much, but before I went, I looked it up on the site pluggedinonline.com for a review. The reviewer, Paul Asay, said something that has stuck with me, even weeks later. He said: "For artists and writers and others who long to create something boundless and lasting, they sometimes feel compelled to sublimate everything--wife, kids, lives--to that art. But The Words tells us there's a beauty and nobility in a life lived simply and sincerely, even if the one who lives it never set the world afire."
I could not have said it better. Until later...
