My 2nd book will be hot off the press in two weeks. Its called For Virtuous Women Only2…From Dimes to Diamonds. I’m excited, but I’ve been this route before. I guess I’m more prepared to handle the good AND the bad. Here’s what happened with the first release:
I had a sister come to my house and beg to stick her tongue down my throat. She said, “I want to taste a celebrity.” Wow, I laughed and walk inside.
I had a wonderful friend from Georgia get on Twitter, contact EVERYONE on my page and ask them, “Are you his wife, because I am the new Mrs. Nelson!” She has since apologized to me (a dozen times) and I forgive……….yet I cannot forget that one.
I had a local sister contact my pastor with silly mess, portraying me as a stalker, when in fact I’ve been to her house a half dozen times. Wow, and the sad thing is after the fact, she contact me a few additional times trying to conversate. What the heck do we chat about when you’ve burned my name at my church of 4 yrs!!!
A beautiful sister out of town who went out of her way to contact a few people and tell them all sorts of things about me. That one hurt me the most because I truly loved her as a wonderful friend and person. But whatever the case, its the past.
Now my approach with this book is this: Don’t Trust NO ONE! All these examples I’ve given you have been from women in church. I refuse to stretch myself out for this 2nd book and be that “friend” while my name is being burned to the ground. God has blessed me with a tremendous gift and I will NOT squander it with mess.
My new book is finally here, and I will approach this book as if its my first book. But this time, I will be the professional I should have been from day one and not try being Mr. Friend-To-Everybody. That backfires on you, and you see an ugly side of people.
I ask for your continued prayers.
