Gone for now – Returning soon.
Amy Jane Sandberg is working hard for you….
A Blessing in Disguise.
Oh Hello there,
It is that time again right… The time to update you on all that is happening… I can’t believe how fast time flies…
*First off: After along debate with myself and some other people. I looked into globally publishing my faith short story “God Supplies and Miracles still Happen”. God’s timing is always perfect. Before when I had looked into publishing on Amazon and Barns and Noble it would have cost me $200.00 each. But when I looked into it again recently I saw it has now become free…. Seriously??? Woot!!!
So I started proof reading my book that was out for sale and re-formatting it for the global copy and I caught some big errors… Some how I had published the wrong copy of my book… How embarrassing… I sure hope no one bought any of those bad copies… The story is still good. However some key things had errors. Such as: my parents rode a train to San Francisco not a plane… Since I had some how deleted the better copy I had to start editing all over again… This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I increased the book by almost 10 pages… And I rearranged some things, so it flows much better. I sent the final copy to someone I trust to edit it further.. When I get it back I’ll re check it, make the appropriate changes and re-publish it on http://www.LuLu.com
Since the books I have up are glitched. I removed the links to them for now. Once I get it back I will re format those books and put in the new content… I have to do it for both books. You will be able to order copies of these exclusively from LuLu when I put them back up… And Now I’ll have a third copy… It will be saddle stitched. I have to order a copy to see how it turns out, which can take up tow weeks, and once I give the go ahead they will send it to their approval team to make sure everything is good and it is presentable to be mass produced. That can take up six to eight weeks. EEk! Once it is approved, which I know it will be, The book will be available for sale and at more then the two places. I am so excited and Scared!!!! I never dreamed this would be so realistic and my dream is finally coming to it’s beginning… I know some of you have been waiting literally years…
*Second: Now that I have that taken care of I am back to working on the other three books. I am honestly re- Thinking Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments… I still wanna do it, however. I am not sure to what scale and what exactly do I want the contents to contain now. I just don’t seem like the grand example of my work as I first thought it to be.. So while I barley work on that I am currently working on finishing “Deeply Rooted In Him” The next book I hope to publish and by the end of the year too…. And of course I’m working on my main. “Miracles still Happen Today”. Both are coming along very nicely. I am debating changing the name, of ” Miracles Still Happen Today”. I’ll cross that road once it is done..
*Third: I found 3 of my fictions… Two of the three are mostly up to date, which I am pleased to have printed notes on… And one that is really out of date. I don’t think I will dare even touching that one till much latter.. But now when I get burned out and fried from working on my personal and faith stories I now have another set of outlets to work on and relive my stress. I am so happy about that.. But Don’t get your hopes up.. They are far from being done and I still have some plot kinks to figure out Before get get to deep into the story.
*Lastly: Thank you so much for reading and caring about my work. It means so much to me and encourages me, even-tho I revive so little comments. I am so pleased my ambition and passion matters to you even if it is the tiniest bit… ~HUGS~

Going back to College…..
Hello Dear friends,
Now that I feel life is more stable. I am finally going back to college. I have my associates degree in international business. However my dream was get a bachelors degree. A major in psychology and a minor theology, Bible… I tried many different things over the years but my passion is people. I am still going to work on my books I feel that going back to school and these particular degree choices will aid me in the long run. I found a Christian college that is highly rated and is also grouped together with two other schools I was considering. I feel that God led me to the school at this particular time. My books are coming together nicely and and I will be taking the courses online. one class every semester. That is how they do it. Each class is a combination of classes. I heard about a contest on the radio K-love.
I find out if I won the scholarship originally I thought today. But on March 6th.I’m trusting God completely with this I want to go back to school if I win it or not but it would be a huge blessing and a major weight lifted if I won. Please pray for me. I have been longing to go back to school, and dreaming about This degree since before I left collage. But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do first. I am happy with my International Business degree. It helped me find some other dreams winch I know will come true one day. They all tie together. I trust whatever happens it is in God’s hands! I trust His plan for me and I am very grateful for His guidance and direction. Good morning / goodnight I love you all God bless you!

http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AmyJane27 It is free to download. In Pdf and Epub ( for nook and other e readers) format
I am so excited to share this with you all for free. There was a scare; I thought I almost lost it. I had accidentally deleted the project and had trouble re-submitting the work. I contacted them for help, and well… They didn’t help at all. I figured out there was some hidden formatting in my document when I edited it and had to copy just text and re-do all the prior enhancements. Such as: Italics, bold, spaces, headers, and footers.. You need to basically submit an almost clear format free project… Make sure, if you plan on using Lulu.com, you read the info on how your format should be… And does a test run… It is also really easy to edit your work… I really want to share This story with you. The book has been hard to write, very emotional.. But it is getting done.. I Pray you all like it.!!! Thanks!!! Have a great weekend!!!
Have a set goal do your best and allow for unexpected bumps in the road, because they will happen, but keep a smile. Because You will make it, if you do not give up. ~Amy Jane
The Book Has been Published!
Hello My friends and Family,
I am so excited to tell you “A New Song” Has finally Been published!!!
I am not sure where to start. When I was asked to contribute to this book, I became excited at the opportunity to share my story, God’s story! But as I actually sat down to write it, I became afraid, that I would not be able to convey the message properly and that I could disappoint those who may be expecting me to write a masterpiece. I am presently struggling with some books that I also am writing. I am sure God is using this opportunity as a push. He is telling me to just do it, while using this opportunity to boost my confidence too. I know God wants me to share this story in any way that I can. He is opening new doors daily, not just for me but for you as well. We just need to walk through them – even if at times we have to crawl through. Whatever it takes for us to move forward, keep growing, and to help others do the same.
Any ways! Here is a note from the main editor, with the book Poster below.
I just heard from our printer about the book’s final price for 192 pages with contributions from 53 authors, 17 photographers/artists, and a beautiful color cover with semi-exposed Wire-0 binding that allows the book to open flat.
If we order 500– the cost will be $15/book
If we order 1,000 — the cost will be $13/book
So far, I have received orders for 237. Please let me know how many you plan to order so that I can get the best price.
I’m so happy that is is finally here!! There are so many awesome stories besiides mine in this book. It is a great Testament of God’s work!!! Please check it out for yourself! Email Diane or call her and place your order. I don’t thing it is selling online anywhere.. 😦
I can’t wait to share my story with you all!! I love you, and God Loves you too!!
The Date has been set~
Wow~ The date has been set. Jan. 18th 2011 I will board a plan and land in my new home state. I was scared when I first found out but now I am excited.. I am trying to spend time with people before I leave and it saddens me to leave them. But my family is most important other then God to me. Thus I’ll be leaving soon and praying the rest of my family is able to join me soon.
THE AWESOME part is I’ll have a lot of time and space to work on my books, and internet again. I have not had much time since my wonderful nephew was born and it pains me to be leaving him. I pray his mom and him will join us soon. Well thats all for now. I hope with the new year you find new excitement and Joy as well.~! ~Amy Jane
