Last week, I sent my manuscript to my professional editor, recruited beta readers, consulted with my graphic designer for my book cover, and a dozen other tasks in effort to get my book ready for publication at the end of October 2015. After immersing myself into this project for nine solid months, along with blood, sweat, and tears, I'm finally able to take a little breath.
This weekend, my one beta reader made my day. She wrote to share that she finished reading my entire manuscript and her uplifting message nearly brought me to tears. Here's a copy of what she wrote about my book: "I have completed all the chapters and I must say it's a master piece! I'm going to re-read it again and again. I sat and pondered with the Lord after I got done and said, "Lord, Dana's book felt to me like a jig saw puzzle. Each chapter was like a piece of the puzzle. The topics were spot on and she was talking to ME! When I finished the last chapter, it was like I put the last piece of the puzzle on the board and it all fit together." Simply AWESOME. I've got some work to do in this thing called life, but with God's help, He will direct my path one step at a time. Having read your other two books, plus this new one --I saw how He took you from Rock Bottom Places to a beautiful butterfly/child of God. You radiate His love, Dana, for the world to see. Women who read this new book are going to be blessed. God's timing is so perfect. I can't wait to see how He transforms me. Taking a big breath and stepping out in faith into the deep."
Once again, I am humbled at such an encouraging book review. I can only pray that women from all walks of life who read Reinventing You! will be touched in a positive way and bravely move forward to enhance their own physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
For those interested in what my nonfiction is about, here's a description:
