You should be on the Bestseller List!
I got a very kind message last night that I’m going to share with you.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time I’ve gotten feedback like this (it’s the fifth, but who’s counting?). And, believe it or not, I am not a New York Times Bestseller. But I’d like to be.
At any rate, these sorts of messages are a good reminder that I’m on the right track. Let me explain what I mean. One of the earliest lessons impressed on me as I began writing was quality-quality-quality. “Your name is going on the cover of that book,” I was told. “Don’t let it become sullied by pushing out an inferior work.”
There’s a passage in 1 Corinthians. 10:31: So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
Though I fail at it often, that’s the driving force behind all my work. From parenting to writing to mowing the lawn. Do it for the glory of God, or, do it in a way that glorifies Him. That is, of course, an impossibly high standard. Not one I can achieve on my own. But, if I’m ever going to become what people (and I) wish for me to become, I can’t think of any other way to get there.
Or rather, I wouldn’t want to get there any other way.
“Anspach’s book reads fast, is filled with suspense, action, and romance, and feels as comfortable and upbeat as a popular Bryan Adams summer song. The Returns are in, this book is a winner.” – Timothy Gray
