Day 5 - Dothan Alabama
Day 5 is a blur!
Today I had two interviews - one on TV with the wonderful Jenna Zibton of WDHN 18 ABC Tri-States Today show. Jenna is a polished professional who made me feel right at home during the interview. Next stop was a Bible bookstore, the Dove Christian Supply. The employees were very kind and welcoming. We rushed back to the hotel for an interview with Laurie McLoughlin for Internet Voices Radio "Today's Women." It was a challenging interview and Ms. McLoughlin asked questions that I hadn't been asked before. Also, she was that kind of person that made me think . . . which I loved. Her take on Love's First Light was a perspective that made me hang on her every word. It was different than mine in some ways, but that is my prayer for every book I write. I ask God to annoint, through the Holy Spirit, within the perspective of the reader (and everyone is different!) the message, the light He wants to shine to that reader. I think that is the very best part of being in the creative arts. What I see and create is just one side to that prism of split light that Christophe knows (hero in Love's First Light). Someone else will have another perspective that is just as beautiful as the color blue to one person is the color red to another. It really blows my mind.
The rest of the day is something of a blur as Tony and I are exhasted. Tomorrow we drive to Huntsville, Alabama. It's a long drive but at the end of that drive I get to see the face of one of my favorite people - my agent, Wes Yoder. I can't wait to see him!
