1: What is the working title of your book?
I am in the completion stages of Message In A Word 2. The book consists of 52 acrostics which can be read once a week or at whatever pace the reader desires. An acrostic is a series of lines or letter when read in sequence gives you a message or a phrase. I have attempted to give as much of a true meaning to each word as I can, with that definition you come away with a message that will give a clearer understanding of the word. When I first got the idea to write this book I thought it was for the purpose of the speaking of words more than the meaning, now I have a clearer understanding in that I feel it is more of understanding the true meaning of a particular word. I’m finding that acrostics are a clever way of imparting truth.
2: Where did the idea come from for the WIP?
It was in a series of dreams that concurred over a period of twelve years or so. The dream consisted of my being pregnant, being advised as to what I should eat while pregnant, as far what to eat after birth was just as important because I was breastfeeding. This dream was consist and progressive. It finally came to light for me that a book is often times called our “baby.” When I concluded that the baby was a book, I then went to work on the book which took me about eight years, mine you not all of those years were writing it was mostly being afraid of what was lying ahead.
3: What genre does your book come under?
It can be categorized as Non-Fiction or Devotional, or Christian/Inspirational.
4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Since my book is not categorized as fiction that would not be applicable for my style of writing.
5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Message in a Word carries a special meaning: “Means Exploring Specific Subject And Getting Enlightenment In Nutshell As Written Oracle Revealed Deity.”
6. Is your book self-published, published by an Independent publisher, or represented by an agency?
I am an independent and self-publisher.
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I don’t use a draft since my writings are done is segments. It doesn’t take me long to write, after the acrostic I use that particular word to either tell a story or give some insight from the definition of the word. The writings are usually two to three pages long.
8. What other book would you compare this story to within your genre?
I don’t know that I can compare my writing. I’ll give you an example, the subtitle of the book is “Inspired Succinct Sermons Uniquely Expressed.
9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
It was not my idea to write a book, I am responding to the divine nudges that I have received and am receiving from the Lord.
10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The book is not a cover to cover read. It encourages the readers to know they can read and reread at their own pace. It heightens the reader’s awareness of the true meaning of words. If you they remember the writings, they will remember the acrostics because of their uniqueness.
