Consideration

Over the last few days I’ve had a lot to think about. I’ve had to think about my own family, my second novel, as yet untitled, and then marketing and publicity for “Daybreaker”. Just because I was curious about what kind of reaction I was going to get back, I decided to put together an email package with the synopsis for “Daybreaker” and the two press releases that Vanessa, my agent put together, and send it to some Christian production companies.

I didn’t really expect a reply. “Daybreaker isn’t published yet, I have a relatively small fan base and I am an unknown author. Why would it even be considered. But, God has other plans for me and for “Daybreaker” I guess.

I’ve been surprised to get some reply’s back and the reply’s have been good and brought positive things into my life. There have been a few companies that are interested in “Daybreaker” for a made for TV movie. This has been a huge surprise to me as I didn’t really think I was going to get that kind of response.

Vanessa has wisely advised me that I should really consider this. Any author out there would give their right foot for this kind of opportunity. Every author wants to see their book, their baby made into a move, but it is so few that really get that opportunity. And even fewer get that opportunity before their book is even in print.

I have to admit that I am scared. I’ve watched so many movies produced off a book that I’ve read and so much is different and the producers have changed so much of the book. I don’t want this to happen to “Daybreaker” this is my baby. I don’t want it to be misrepresented and I don’t want the story line changed. The story line that I have now is pivotal to the next three books. I’ve planned out this story line carefully and I hate the idea of it being changed.

But, at the same time, I can see where Vanessa is coming from and this is something that I have to take into serious consideration. I can’t let fear hold me back. Ambrose Redmoon once said “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear”.

I have to have courage to take this next step. As much as I am scared and I fear losing control over the story, my judgment tells me that I can’t let this fear hold me back. The story that “Daybreaker” tells is too important for that. And I know that Ambrose Redmoon was right in his quote and I need to take courage and I have to use that courage to push me to this next step. I have to let God guide my path and show me what his divine plan for me and for “Daybreaker” is.
