And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
If you know anything about the book publishing world, then you know how hard it is for a new author to get a publisher to look at their work let alone receive a contract offer. It’s a long process. In fact, I believe it took about a year for me to receive a contract for my book, Autumn Moon.
About eight months later, the contract has been canceled. Yup, you read it correctly. I received an email today at 5:47 pm from the publishing company. They’re shutting down the fiction sector due to financial reasons. The email was definitely unexpected, but I am at complete peace about everything. As I’m typing this, I’m thinking about the owner of the company. In a situation like this, it’s easy to focus on yourself. After all, I do believe a canceled literary contract would be considered disappointing in anyone’s book, right? But the publisher is losing so much more. I will continue to pray for everyone who is a part of that company including the owner/president.
I know for a fact without a shadow of a doubt, God is in control. He knows exactly what He’s doing and all I need to do is trust Him. It’s all good! 😀
We all know those people who are going to try to analyze this to figure out why this happened. Especially those who weren’t happy for me in the first place. I’m sure people will concluded I must’ve done something wrong for this to have happened. LOL The truth is, the company is having financial problems and all authors lost their contracts. That’s it. That’s all. I have to keep moving forward. I posted this yesterday. I will . . .
Monday morning, it’s back to submitting my manuscript.
Just blogging it out . . . Oh and Happy Thursday Night!! 😀
P.S. Continue to pray for our country.
