Baby Blues: What it is not about.

Last December I published a book called Baby Blues.  When I went to look it up at Amazon, all I found was the cartoon Baby Blues. I didn’t realized my book would fall under that search. My book is called Baby Blues and it is not about the cartoon nor is it about Post partum depression. Yes I looked it up. Unfortunately, you won’t be reading about a woman after she gave birth. Baby Blues is quite different from that. Maybe I should have given it another title but that was the title that came to me.

My book is also not about a happy life on the ranch. A reviewer wrote that she thought my book would be just that by reading the description. Oops! My bad. Yes. the story is set on the ranch of Montana, I did my research the best I could. I had hope I would live on a ranch before it’s publication, but it didn’t work out that way. So when you read the description, don’t compare it to other books set on a ranch. Or you will be disappointed.

I’m guessing that other authors who writes such stories, wrote a whole series set on a ranch. My series is not like that. Book one is set mostly in rural California and book three will also be set in California. As for book 4, probably in California or might be Montana. I haven’t decided.

What you will read about is a woman dealing with her infertility, her husband with his secret who by the way is not controlling. Has anyone ever heard of a loved one wanting to protect his mate? Eric loves his wife. Should I just have him say, “Sure, you can work outside the home?” And not care what happens to his wife?  At least he doesn’t abuse her or beat her.

Mean reviewers reminds me  of the media and the left. They hate Trump. They are upset because Hilary didn’t win so they say all kinds of evil against him. I recently found out that a pastor of all people who is not a Trump supporter went to one of his rallies in Florida.  He took with him, but this man already had his mind made up. No matter what good came out of the rally, he already saw him as evil.

Maybe that is a bad comparison, but that’s how I feel. I upset the reviewer so she gave me a three star review. The book didn’t live up to her expectation.

So what is my book about? It is about a woman who is depressed because she found her life unfulfilling. She thought working outside the home, but instead she saw reminders of what she couldn’t have and she ran into danger. Her husband wanted to protect her which was why he didn’t want her working outside the home. His half brother escaped from prison and he had one thing on his mind: Raping Julie. He did this to get back at Eric. So not only  is she infertile but she becomes a victim of rape.

So how is my book Christian? Julie has great faith. She listens to a kind of music that most people never heard about, but like praise and worship, it brings you close to God. It is called Soaking Worship. While Praise and Worship, you sing dance, shout and has different beats, soaking  is soft and relaxing. Think of it as soaking in a bathtub full of suds. You’re relax and you focus on the words (if there is singing or it is spoken) Julie  doesn’t give up on God but draws close to him and it has helped her to heal.

There is a saying that is true: You can’t judge a book by its cover.  So please give my book a chance. Thank you.

The Second Chance Series:Soaking Worship Explained.

On my Author page, I pondered or rather wrote whether I should tell people  what Soaking Worship is. Everyone knows what Praise and Worship is, but not that. In fact the first person left me nice three stars review because I disappointed her. I wrote very little about ranching ,  she never heard of  soaking worship and the rape scene was too long for her. I think she hoped my book would be a nice long book about ranching and romance. It is not a romance book, sorry to say.  She seemed happy I mentioned Chris Tomlin.

There is a difference between Soaking Worship and Praise and Worship. I think it is obvious. When you are in a bathtub, do you soak in suds and bubbles or do you praise it? Are you not immersed in the bubbles? Or do you dance and clap your hands in the bubbles? (Be careful you could slip and fall if you do) My questions reminds me of Paul when he said he sounded foolish because I sound foolish to you. I am trying to make a point. No, you don’t dance in the bubbles. I read in the article where it you lie  on your back and you just relax and just  immerse in the music being played. I listened to Graham Cooke Favor of the Lord on  a Sunday. It is not a sermon. He is speaking of the Lord’s Favor. We  are to receive it as we  open ourselves  to prophecy.  Most of soaking worship is prophetic. People like Corey  and Anna Ashbury and Graham Cooke or Heidi Baker. And there are some just instrumental like DappyTKeys or Kings Worship. None of those makes you want to stand and shout and clap your hands but they do draw you into God’s presence just as Praise and Worship do. The only difference is,  you are singing praise songs like Hosanna, or Our God Reigns, songs by Hillsongs, Passion, etc.  Please educate yourself. There are websites on the subject of Soaking worship. I posted one  on my author page on Facebook Madison Books.  There are tons of soaking worship videos on youtube so you don’t have to spend money on a cd and no I am not trying to get you to  or forcing you to buy my book.  My book isn’t about Soaking Worship but it is mentioned a few times in both of them because it has become part of my main character’s life.
