"Patient, the Shepherd" Bookmark


After a few revisions the illustration is complete. Amber has done a great job. I love the soft feel to the scene, evoking emotions of peace in the midst of a storm.
Next project will be the second bookmark, one of a character that few of you will know because he is original to the new edition of my novel. But I won't spoil the "Specter" bookmark for you. You'll just have to wait until work on it begins!
In the meantime I have to finish editing Swords of the Six and then give it to the editor, Dan Penwell, at AMG Publishers. Mostly I've focused, as the editor requested me to, on strengthening dialogue and enriching the story with more detail.
So, back to writing in the midst of a busy schedule. Do not be concerned, though distractions come along and things slow for a time (such as financial considerations) this project is my baby and I'm going to see it through to the beautiful end!

I have to admit, the revised version definately seemed to "jump off the screen." It makes me want to read the book all the more. Thank you for the reassurance that you'll see it through to the end. :) J/K (I never doubted you would.)

Glad you both love it! The scene is one of my favorites in the novel. I think you'll enjoy Patient's more prominent presence.

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
