The amount of work it takes to actually write a book is nothing compared to the process that follows "The End". Part of that process is selecting a forward writer. This person gets the space at the very front of your book, they have to grab your readers attention immediately and then intrigue them just enough to keep them flipping the page while not giving away the goods! When selecting this person you must choose someone whom you respect, trust and admire! Often times, authors will seek to find someone with a known name as to bring credibility to their work.
While finding this unicorn of a person can be challenging and often scary as the foreword writer will often times be the first person to read your manuscript with an unbiased opinion.
When selecting this person for Leaving War, Finding Love; I knew I needed someone special! After disappointment, discouragement and a big leap of faith, I was blessed with the perfect person who not only believes in my words but has gone above and beyond to lend her support my way as well. God orchestrated this, I cannot take credit but I am truly thankful for the special person Dr. Carrie Elk is to my and my book.
