How My Book Became a Movie

Beautiful Readers

     I’m still doing a happy dance over the adventure that has been unfolding as my book Finding Father Christmas has become movie.

When I was on the Hallmark movie set for the filming of Finding Father Christmas I couldn’t wait to tell you all the God things that happened. I planned to write a nice long blog about it. On the return flight I started jotting down all the exciting moments, such as when my agent and I got to be extras and what happened when the moon broke through the clouds at just the right moment during filming.

The blog story kept growing when I got home and pulled out my journals from the past decade. I found prayers I’d penned while writing Finding Father Christmas and was reminded of how crushed I was when the publisher had me rewrite Engaging Father Christmas four times. Several weeks later I realized I’d created more than a very long blog. I’d written a book! A 96 page, from-my-heart-to-yours book.

    I loved this little book almost as much as the novellas. You really poured out your heart for the reader. You have such a wonderful way of words. To keep it all together and in order, amazes me. I have never thought of writing a book, well, maybe I have, although after reading How My Book Became a Movie, I am inspired.

    When I finished the book I was astounded at what I looked up at, the moon. It’s still early here on the west coast, the sun hasn’t even begun to set, but as I stood from my seat on our driveway (my reading spot) and looked above the garage, there was the moon, a half moon, but the moon still the same. It brought your thoughts full circle in my mind.

    Thank you for your heart felt stories. I can’t wait for the movie.

    Blessings to you from San Diego

    • Thanks for posting this. I LOVE that you looked up and saw the moon as you were reading it! And I’m so glad this little book hit a sweet spot with you. If you feel like posting a review on Amazon I think it will help others decide if they should get it, too.
