We have all seen the reality TV shows when they are going to do the reveal on the new house or the new car and they go to commercial, building the anticipation of the incredible unveiling that is about to occur. That's what it's like as an author to have a book ready to go, but need to wait for edits, or feedback, or press releases, or to find a place to do the book release. Then it all has to come together for a single three hour period of sheer enjoyment. I finally get to share my endeavor with the world.
As a writer, you wake up suddenly one evening with a story inspiration. It may only be a word or a feeling, but that's what starts the creative juices flowing. Then a week later, you see a place or a friend, or a stranger on the street and the story becomes more real. That creative process repeats itself a thousand times until the book is finally on paper. My mind can tell a story much faster than my fingers can type. That's why I feel like I've lived the story when it's done. Because I've watched the scene play out a hundred times in my head trying out new phrases, or situations or character until it's perfect and it goes on the page.
With that introduction, I want to announce (or re-announce) the launch of my new novel, Inspiration Point. It takes place in or around Lander, Wyoming and follows a single family through seven generations as they struggle to carve a living from the land, and with their neighbors, as well as make time for a relationship with God. Inspiration Point is a place on the ranch where if they pray to God, at that point, the prayer will be answered. However, it quit working, and the current owner tells the story of his family to the Realtor that will list the property and sell it.
