The Promise

In December 2021, I wrote a short story called The Promise. Last month, I submitted it to the CCU | online Colorado Christian University Short Story Contest Challenge.

And guess what?

I won!

The prizes included a critique of the submitted work and autographed books by 21-time New York Times Bestselling Author Jerry B. Jenkins, a CCU water bottle, journal, tote bag, and a heavyweight sweatshirt blanket!

Besides these wonderful prizes, I had a delightful experience with CCU staff member, Tera Jewell, Digital Marketing Specialist, College of Adult and Graduate Studies.

Tera was so gracious through the pre-launch process and asked if I wanted my original or critiqued story published on CCU’s blog; if I wanted any additional changes made to the critiques, was the image to accompany my story okay; if I wouldn’t mind a slight publication delay because of website updates? Wow, I was blown away. Writers usually don’t have a say once a story is accepted for publication.

If Tera is an example of CCU’s service priorities, and I was applying for college, this would be my college choice.

In case you’re wondering if I had any additional changes to Jerry’s critiques, the answer is who would change critiques by a bestselling author of over 200 books in multiple genres, some adapted into a movie?!

We’re celebrating Kiss under the Lemon Tree’s six-month birthday…and my birthday which includes the number six but that’s all I’m revealing.

Celebrate with me. Treat yourself, and your friends and family in time for Christmas. Most importantly, be safe.

Set in 1954, Sonny realizes the best thing to hold on to in life is his realtor’s attractive granddaughter. But Addie has problems even she isn’t aware of, which turns their lives upside down.
