Today, I’m thrilled to announce the start of my first-ever blog tour, for what is also my first-ever published story!
If you’ve been around my site long, you’ve probably heard me talk about my short story, The Toymaker’s Doll (if you’re on my email list, you’ve already received some version of it when you joined). This is a story that’s very dear to me, and contains many of the truths and life lessons I’ve learned – especially over the past couple of years.
Though I never planned to do anything more with this story at first, God has brought so many opportunities, and so many encouraging and supportive people into the process. And it’s because of this that The Toymaker’s Doll is now available as an ebook on Amazon!
A limp. A scuff. A cowardly heart.
Jane is a doll struggling with all these things. She and her friend Isabel, a blind stuffed kitten, spend their days in the corner of their shelf, watching the other toys in the shop play—and wishing they could be like them.
Questions plague the friends. Why has the Toymaker allowed them to be flawed? Surely it’s a mistake. One day, Jane sets off to find his workshop, eager to be fixed, and to bring him back for Isabel.
But the journey is hard and the road long. How can such a weak, fearful doll ever reach the Toymaker? And how will he respond if she does?
