Hey guys, here is a situation worthy of prayer lol.

I got an eviction notice in January from my landlord while I was working out of town for mennonites, mid-march I had to be out, so March 15, I ended up moving out of Ontario to Manitoba, and am currently living in Manitoba without any income, because my ODSP got cut off at the end of March, and I have an Income Assistance Appointment May 19.

Now you know why I wrote a book.... some the things I gotta do to survive... lol.....

I am sorry I haven't been on in over 6 weeks this is the first chance I have had to get online since I left Ontario.
Theres a book worth writting... (Good Bye Ontario, Hello Manitoba) hahaha

I will pray for God to assist you in this drastic transition period. Hopefully, your books earn money.

Thanks, yes,

first thing you need before you start writing a book, is a topic to write about. (I have had a friend say he wanted write a book but didn't know what to write about) (hahaha)

Second it's a good idea to go through your private library at home and review the books you have for publishers contact information.

Third, send them a letter and ask for information on the publishing process from beginning to end, and about any fees or expenses involved.

Fourth, make sure you have the time and resources to commit to writing and publishing a book.

Every manuscript I print and mail costs me about $60.00, $40.00 for a box of printer ink and $20.00 for small packet postage.

So with the book, I can't get a hold of my publisher, and Murray who is willing to help finance it, has only read 10 chapters of the manuscript... and a friend of mine want to help finance it but wants to read the manuscript after Murray is done with it. I wonder what will come first, the publishing, the rapture or retirement... lol

if it were us, we would put all of our 'trust' in God and not manuscript -
it just seems to us that you believe your writings are your binding road to success??? -
it's obvious that this is just not so, at least for now...

There is faith, and there is intelligent faith, you should prepare for the worst and hope and work for the best. Good luck, i am praying for you.

Hey all, I got a letter from the publisher in Winnipeg,
They were impressed I was able to finish it when most people who set out to write a book never do, they think the heart of the book is strong, and their a strong testimony to it.

but they think their is too much material and want me to shorten it. But they are willing to review it again when I re-write it.
