Finding the Inspiration
The inspiration for my book came from my own personal struggle with navigating the holidays in the midst of loss, relationship challenges, the stress of expectations, and general holiday stress. It led me to share my journey through those times and the hope I have discovered in the process. I know I am not alone in my struggle. My hope is to reach those who share similar challenges and emotions. I want to provide hope and a renewed joy for the Christmas season.
Finding My Way with WestBow
Once the book was written, I felt stuck and unable to move forward. due to my lack of knowledge about the entire publishing process. Thankfully, I discovered Westbow Press through a fellow author. Westbow has helped me every step of the way. They have been very gracious to address and answer my naive questions and concerns. I felt very supported by them at every turn in the process. They made this publishing journey so easy and provided the feedback and help I needed to complete the process.
I have been very pleased with the finished product of my book. They did a fantastic job and helped to create a book that I hope will reach many and provide healing and hope.
