My Personal Story has Been Accepted!

I am so excited! My personal story 'The Color of Love' was accepted for publication.
God Makes Lemonade

I got the email today....

Dear Debra,

The God Makes Lemonade™ team would like to share your story with others!
You recently submitted a story called “The Color of Love" to the God Makes Lemonade website. Our team of reviewers thinks it will make a great lemonade story—a story in which the sour parts of life are surprisingly sweetened by encouragement and inspiration.
Attached is a permission form that will give our team of professional writers and editors permission to begin preparing your story for publication according to our precise guidelines. When you sign this form and return it to us, we can send you the first $50 of your payment—and then we’ll get to work!
Here’s what happens after you allow us to use your submission. Your story will be given to one of our God Makes Lemonade writers, and that writer will make sure your story becomes a perfect fit for the forthcoming book. That writer may contact you for additional information as he or she works on the story. Once the story is written, it will be given to our lead editor, who will send you the polished story for review and comment. Once you share your comments on the polished story, we’ll send you the final $200 of your payment, and you can look forward to seeing your story in print!
We started the God Makes Lemonade community to share encouragement with each other—true stories that can really change people’s lives. Thank you so much for adding your story to this community of hope!
Sincerely,
Martin Raz
The God Makes Lemonade Team


This is an honor for me to be able to share my personal story about my dad with others. The money is nice, but it about more....it's the blessings.

So great to hear success publishing stories as the state of publishing these days is in such flux; I haven't published a new novel in ten years, but at least I'm back to writing in my blog!
