It's Official: I Have A Book Deal With Destiny Image Publishers!

I'm so excited to share this news with you guys. During the summer I was approached by Destiny Image about the possibility of publishing an expanded version of "Deliver Me From Negative Self Talk". I was thrilled.

Destiny's Authors include: TD Jakes, Danny Silk, Jackie Kendall, Cindy Trimm and many other talented authors.

As excited as I was...I didn't want to get ahead of myself. I remained cautiously optimistic. After all, Amazon also approached me, over a year ago, with a similar opportunity and I never heard back from them.

During my conversation with Destiny's Acquisitions Dept, I agreed to submit a few manuscript samples of my self-published work for them to review. I drafted the email, hit send, and then I waited...and waited...and waited.

I prayed and confessed and remained positive-just like I encourage you all to do. I thanked God for the opportunity and I told Him how much I wanted this book project to please Him. As one month passed and then another, I began to wonder if maybe this wasn't the opportunity God wanted me to pursue.

Then in September, I received a message. Destiny Image was very much interested in moving forward! Fast-forward, I now have a signed contract. 9-12 months from now, barring any delays, my book will be on store shelves around the world (Of course, I am believing that this book will go worldwide and sell millions of copies).

I'm humbled, grateful, and amazed at God's goodness and unwavering faithfulness. His hand of favor has been on this simple book since day one. It's inexplicable and exceeding, abundantly, above all I could ask or think- but that's how GREAT God is.

Its a dream come true. And when I see my first book sitting on a store shelf, I will cry tears of joy. Then I will pull out my cell phone and take a Selfie (laughing). Maybe when the book reaches your city, you too will post your own Selfie with the book and tag me so that I can see it! OMG I would love that!

There's plenty of work ahead. I need your prayers. Please pray with me that the final book will be pleasing to God and that He will use it to change lives of believers and non-believers. Pray for me that I'm obedient to the Holy Spirit in my writing. And that people all over the world will be delivered from negativity and begin to live a life filled with joy and peace in Christ.

Thank you all for supporting me and continually sending me such encouraging emails. I hope you are as excited as I am. You truly are the reason for Negative Self Talk's success.

And together, I know that we can see the Negative Self Talk book take the world by storm. It's by God's grace that it will succeed and bless the lives of others the way that it has blessed yours and mine.

What do you guys think? Post your comments below or on the Facebook Page. Can't wait to hear from you. God bless.

New Release, Lord Deliver Me From Negative Self Talk 2: Unleash Your Power (Inspiration For Women)

Ladies this one is just for us. I read your comments and you wanted more scripture. I've added more. You liked the self-talk guides so I included them. You wanted more about what causes negative self-talk. I included that. Plus I added some interested things at the end of each chapter to help you get more from the book.

So what's it about? Its about the issues that we face as women with our self-image, self-esteem, and decision-making. We have a lot on our shoulders, but with God's help we can excel and be the women of purpose and power that God created us to be.

We also take a look at some examples of women from the bible like Ruth, Naomi, and Eve and how their lives were effected by their thoughts, emotions and the words they used.

Negative Self Talk Books Get A Facelift: New Titles and Cover Makeovers

Hi everyone. Its been a busy and hot week here in Texas. But I will take the heat over winter any day. I hope you guys are having pleasant weather and that you are doing well and that you're living your best life in the will of God.

I've been busy giving some of the more popular titles a makeover. I wanted the titles to be indicative of the subject matter and for some reason, the previous titles just didn't convey the message of the content the way that I wanted them to.

The first and most popular title, Deliver Me From Negative Self Talk is pretty much the same, save the subtitle, which is now Deliver Me From Negative Self-talk: Faithful Words You Should Say When You Talk To Yourself. Oh and my long-time readers will note that the cover art has gone back to the original design. I also added 30 days of Devotionals at the end. You will remember there were previously only 7 days. I  unpublished one of my devotionals (I Might Bend But I Wont Break) and I added it to this book. I think the additional devotionals will bless the readers and add more value.

In keeping with the first book's design, the second book is Lord Deliver Me From  Negative Emotions: Controlling Negative Emotions and Finding Peace in the Midst of Storms. We all have experienced emotional stress. Hopefully, you were able to control your emotions and avoid a dangerous meltdown. This book will bless you by teaching you how to control negative emotions and channel anger and fear so that they produce more positive outcomes. Learn to set boundaries for negative people and how to live peacefully even when everything around you seem to be falling apart.

 Deliver Me From Negative Health Talk: Guide To Speaking Healing Words of Faith, is also going through a change. It's cover will be more like the previous two titles. The new title is "Choose Words of Life: How to Declare Your Healing and Stand In Faith Until It Manifests".

For some reason the original title, Negative Health Talk, just didn't work for readers I suppose. "Your Words Can Heal Your Body" resonates more with me and hopefully it will with readers too.

Not many people downloaded it, but those of you who did gave wonderful reviews. So I know its not that the book is bad, just that something is drawing the audience. Hence the new book cover and some updates internally.

Finally, The book that has gone through the most changes is my personal testimony. I've gone back and forth with the title as many of you know. Trying to find one that works and draws interest. This book was Faith Under Fire, Oh God Please Help Me, Sow Much More....and now I think the final title, The 7 Most Powerful Faith Principles That Changed A Stressed-out Mom's Life Forever.

I look forward to hearing from you guys. Thank you so much for the kind emails and Facebook posts. Your support blesses me and keeps my encouraged. I need your encouragement too :-) Love you guys. Thank you again for all of your support and prayers. Talk with you again soon.

Spiritual Self Help Series (Self Talk-By Faith I Declare)

What an absolute blessing the Spiritual Self Help Series has been. You, the readers, have been so supportive and generous with our feedback and encouragement. Thank you for that. It really inspires me to keep writing.

There are four books in this collection of the Spiritual Self Help Series (Update: This series is now the "By Faith I Declare" Series .
They are:
#1) Bestselling, Deliver Me From Negative Self-Talk: Faithful Words You Should Say When You Talk To Yourself
#2)- Positive Self Talk For Emotional Health: Set Boundaries and Take Back Control of Your Life
#3) Choose Life: How To Declare Your Healing and Stand in Faith Until It Manifests
#4) Get Off Your Knees And Do Something About It: 17 Things To Do After You Pray

I created the first book, Deliver Me From Negative Self-Talk: Faithful Words You Should Say When You Talk To Yourself, because I was personally dealing with Negative Self Talk. Even though I attended church regularly and considered myself  a "faithful" person, my view of the world was often doubtful and pessimistic. It wasn't until I heard a teaching on Proverbs 18:21, "Life and death is in the power of the tongue," that I began to take my words more seriously.

The second book is actually a more recent title, Lord Help Me With My Negative Emotions. (Update) The title has been changed to: Positive Self Talk For Emotional Health: Set Boundaries and Take Back Control of Your Life. I felt it was necessary because many of my readers were commenting that they wanted more. Specifically, they wanted to know how to handle their emotions. And how to overcome feelings of hopelessness and hurt. So after some time I added this book and made it #2, pushing Lord Deliver Me From Negative Health Talk to #3.

Negative Health Talk title has been changed to "Choose Life: How To Declare Your Healing and Stand in Faith Until It Manifests". This book is close to my heart because I share much about my Aunt who battled breast cancer. Her fight, though painful to experience, taught me a lot about faith, healing, and how we can often talk ourselves out of the healing that Christ died for us to have. We have access to healing, but we have to rid our communication of doubt and negative self talk.

Finally,  the last book in this bundle, Get Off Your Knees And Do Something About It: 17 Things To Do After You Pray, is a practical guide to help you enhance your prayer life. Its not enough to pray, we have to do something. Faith without work is dead. And I believe after we pray, we should get off our knees and take the necessary responsibility for our own recovery, increase, healing, and success. These steps are based on biblical principles and examples. I know you will enjoy it.

As I said the Spiritual Self Help/By Faith I Declare Series is and continues to be a blessing. I love hearing from you about how your lives are changing. I know mine has been improved greatly and I thank God daily for his grace.

God bless!
