Be honest–how many are you now humming the tune from The King and I? Heh heh heh… I hum it a lot when I start a new novel, because the start of a new novel means becoming acquainted with a set of new “friends.”
You see, these characters (kind of like most of us) carry regrets for decisions made in younger years. And those regrets are causing stumbling blocks for them in the current time. Aren’t you glad our Lord gives mercy? He tosses away our sins as far as the east is from the west…but of course, we have to be willing to let them go, too. And therein lies much of the conflict of this story. I’m eager to see how it all turns out! In the meantime, I sit down each day, apply my fingers to the keyboard, and hum, “Getting to know you, getting to know all about you…”
And speaking of getting to know someone…I’m pleased to introduce Karen Witemeyer, who will be joining the Writes of Passage family.
Two-time RITA® Finalist and winner of the coveted HOLT Medallion and ACFW Carol Award, CBA bestselling author, Karen Witemeyer, writes historical romance fiction for Bethany House, believing that the world needs more happily-ever-afters. She is an avid cross-stitcher, shower singer, and bakes a mean apple cobbler. Karen makes her home in Abilene, TX with her husband and three children. Learn more about Karen and her books at: www.karenwitemeyer.com.
I know you’ll give Karen a big welcome!
And now…back to my “friends.”
May God bless you muchly as you journey with Him! ~Kim
