Sitting In the Blessed Spot
During the isolation of the pandemic 2020 I began reading the manuscript with no thought of how to began a book. The manuscript was twenty years old and things had changed. My husband had passed away, my daughter and granddaughter also. Isolation and sadness were with me daily. I live in an apt for Seniors and everyone was afraid of covid. So we stayed behind locked doors. Looking out the windows the street was quiet. Cars were parked. Schools were closed nobody moved. I went into my closet looking for busy work and found the manuscript which started the journey to this book. Publishers were closed. I spent my days reading and rewriting. 2021 as the country tried to reopen I was ready for the publisher. Being a novice writer I went through a few publishers until I found White Falcon Publishing. I’m proud to say me and my book made it through the Covid storm.
