Hurry Read Quick!!!


Hello! ^_^     (Happy smile)

  How are you my  dear readers? Just jump right in….   So I told you  last time I wrote  that I was working on preparing “God Supplies and Miracles Still Happen” for Global Publishing… Well I  finally  did it!!! I prepared two  paper backs  books 38 pages each, and one e-book..  I did away with the coil bound version.. I know  a lot pf people liked it. However the pages got caught and tore to easy… Out of the two types I had before it was the worst quality… But  for peopel who like larger font, This i created  an 8.×5    I ordered that and the much improved  6×9.  I had before… They looked awesome! Other then some formatting errors and  small  typos… All in which I fixed and have now updated…  They rocked! I was super pleased with both!  I am so so picky….. But – This will be the final updates…  

    ~~~~And look ~~~~

congrats  book

Here is the e-mail they sent me about the books… Now- all I have to do is click yes, and then It is a matter of  weeks,  till I find out they say yes.. (I am standing in Faith they will)  I followed all the rules and requirements.  I am quite sacred actually….  When this goes through   anyone who wants, will have a little insight into my personal life and walk of faith.. It makes me more scared and excited to finish the main book which I have been working on again.  The e-book could be approved any day now, tho I think the print books look way better.. I am excited!

Also There happens to  be a book sale!!!

Another Short Story Published.


Hello New and Old readers,

I am so happy.  A few weeks ago I finally finished my short summery / preview for my book to come.

God Supplies & Miracles Happen  Cover

Once completely Brain Dead; Two comas; Three open heart surgeries; Third person in the world to have her heart completely rebuilt; Three strokes; plus so much more. Yet Alive Strong, and still living life Abundantly!  She’s one of a Kind, and lives to serve God, standing on His word – the Bible. Her favorite verse being:  “The Devil comes only to steal, kill, and destroy; but I, come to bring life and to bring it Abundantly.” ~John 10:10

 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

Twister Alert!


 Hello My  Loyal Friends and Family, 
 
Lately Life has been  for me like a Twister  and I don’t mean the game. I mean the big scary Tornado kind.  Fasten your seat belts,  your about to enter the vortex of Life!
 
Some Good, Some Bad. I don’t know where to start…
 
It  guess  it all started when I moved up north!  I had to lean to live out of a suit case, I had to lean not to plan  so much. That was hard, I greatly enjoy planing things,  I lost a love and gained a stronger better love then I could have hoped for! I had a small stroke.  Fiances have been tight but I have been lucky  enough to be blessed enough to still do things I enjoy, like get an Ice Tot-ti  and a slice of quiche  on the weekend at the local cafe. I’ve had several emotional break downs, while working on my book  and at other times, which I highly regret.  Among other struggles, life has been mostly good. God is always Good!   
 
Last month I went to Florida,  My dad and I  drove  for five days across the USA,  to see my sister, her son, her boyfriend, and other people we care about. It was a great trip, though I missed  a few planned  events with some people due to schedule differences. I was so happy to see my family, I miss them so much, though I don’t think I showed it well..  My nephew is getting so big so fast! My sister has some room mates with her right now and they have a son who needs a lot of attention, and is cute as a button. I wish I could have adoped him. He needs a good foundtion of rules and love. I would have loved to be the one who gave it to him, since his parents are lacking in that area. However they do seem to care about his well being. Where they lack  my sister has taken over and is doing a great job caring for him when they don’t.   I am so proud of her. She is a great Mother!
 
I also  got to go to an awesome drive through zoo with lots of  unique animals that one can not see at most  zoo’s.  We had a white rhino  stalk us and at one point we worried he would ram our truck!  EEKK!  Thankfully he decided to  go by with out a scratch.  We fed giraffes, man were they cool!!!  I wanted to take Cupid home, he was such a lover!!  
 
***SPOILIER FOR ZORRO THE DRAMA***
I got to  finish the Disney Zorro series with a beloved friend! I love that Zorro!!  (hums the them song, he marks them with a Z! )  He had some awesome outfits, moves, I really loved most the characters,  especially Zorro, Bernard, Sargent Garcia,  and His loyal friend..   I  didn’t care to much about the sudden ending, I had hoped he would have settled down with a woman……. I guess he Knows that he is mine  ;p (Just Kidding) I will look into it latter especially the books.. Besides The Xmen, Spider-Man, and Superman!, He is one of my favored hero’s!
 
I also  went to Florida to get my first Dog. The family has had dog’s before but this one is all Mine. A  female,  A Pure,  Blue Harlequin Great Dane, with one blue eye and one gold eye. My parents own her half brother, that part was not planed.  I fell in love with her before we knew the blood line. She is a hand full. She is  headstrong, very very smart, sneaky, a climber, and has a attitude, but she is also sweet,  playful, loving, and great with children, and other pets.. She is a real gift from God. She has a real way with people too.. It is hard to stay  sad with her around, I call her my little healer! I  don’t know how I made it with out her. She is growing so fast too!  Lily Belle is about 15 weeks now, about 40lbs, and is up to my knees already..  I’m 5 feet and 1 inches tall by the way…  Thankfully she is now mostly house trained, at least at my house!  ;p  Did you know puppy poop  smells much worse then a  baby’s dirty dipper… EWW!!
 
It took us 7 full days to  drive back to Washington!! Sheesh!!!!   We had to avoid snow storms, my  Nitro  does not have snow tiers, and is not a 4X4. On the way back home we saw my other brother and his girlfriend,  one of my dearest friends  with her family including my god children. I was so happy to see them! I wish they lived closer! I will make an effort to not wait so many years next time!!  I got to taste the great salt lake flats, and man was that good salt! It reminds me we are the salt of the earth… Says the Bible.. we saw a huge tree farm that went on for about 15 miles and probably covered over 1000 acres from baby to adult trees! It was a unique site to behold!
 
We stopped at my grandma Nanna and Baca’s house for one night and got to experience my first snow of the season there in my birth town. It was amazing! I am so thankful for that!!!  We also stopped at a Cherokee town, and I got to learn more about my heritage.  Along the way we went through:  a few  small snow storm’s, a sand storm, salt smog,  city smog, saw a coyote  run across our path, saw  lots of: Antelope, Buffalo, Deer, and  lots and lots of cows… Not including the road kill of: frets,  beavers, skunks, badgers, coyotes, foxes, Porcupines, Muskrats, nutrias, bob cat, a lot of some kind of animal that was a ball of fur kind of like a big hamster not sure what it was, and much more…. It really saddened me to see so many  dead and that I saw a wider verity of dead animals then I did live ones!!  http://roadkill.michaelgeraci.com/ here is a site of  some of what I saw, it is not for the queasy  to look at…      
 
Next time I think I wanna take a train! 
 
When we finally got home, we had to a lot to do especially me, I had to finish settng up  the guest room / office, and other things around the house before the holiday visits began….  I was all excited and motivated to work on on my books, when I got done with thr chores a few days latter only to find out my free word  trial  had worn out. Boo.. 
 
Two weeks latter, For thanksgiving my other sister  with her husband, and other brother with his girlfriend with his children our other nice and nephew. (Yes I have 4 siblings,  there are five of us all together.)Came with five dogs all together and nine people it was a mad house..   Yet it went much better then any of us had hoped. It was very hectic, but the time together seemed to flow nicely by.
 
Now every one is gone and I am left alone once more at my house, with a sink full of dirty dishes, a bunch of torn peppers around the house, and Christmas around the coroner…  My head and body feels like a whirl wind of emotions, pains, aches, thoughts, and it is all making me dizzy…   I can’t believe how much has happened this year, with the move, getting a story published, my new house, ect.. It feels like it happened so fast and at the same time this year feels like it has been several years in the making.. It has been one struggle and blessing after another!!
 
By the way my sister got me office professinal from work, but now she can’t find th code. I pray she finds it soon I’m itching to write!!!  ;p  
 
I love you, Be safe, God Bless you all!
~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.

Hi Everyone,

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.

Thank you,

Diane Kulkarni

A New Song Poster

I can’t wait to share my story with you all!!   I love you, and God Loves you too!!

Stuck…


I am stuck in my current book. “A Crimson Star” I knew what I wanted but now I am not sure how to go about it. And some told me my book was slow to start.. I am worried I need to redo the way I have it written.. I am gonna wait till I get feed back from the editor before I decide.. And I guess keep going as I am..   ARG this is frustrating though.. Why is it so hard to find people to beta read for me????

As for “Miracles Still Happen Today” It is going good. God seems to give me what I need when I am looking for a verse or something..  God is so good..

I wish I could just go some where that I could just work on my books with no distractions. If I could I think at least one book would be done by now.. However I love my nephew and being his nanny and before that things kept comming up. I trust God in his timing yet I do need to work on it more.. And less going out.

I just found out my cozen has a published book ! I am so proud of her.

Well off to work!
