“Pausing, momentarily in the dusk of time, knowing within myself that should I act, or remain still, time will simply pursue its purposed course to destiny, I set my heart to obtain the realization of this Divine appointment; for if, with determined step I shall advance, then all ground gained will be my victory ... and all retreat, my shame.”
— Brenda M Lane

Book One of a Series – Marginal Madge, Always on the Edge - Fiction (Intended for film)
Author: Brenda M Lane
Cover Illustrator: Chris Beatrice - (Note: $3k plus for single cover illustration. $1200 - $1500 each for 10 or more pictures.)
A charming and fun-filled novella for fans of humor and descriptive scenery, Marginal Madge – Always on the Edge, is a hopeful book, intended to bring you comic relief, and quiet reverie.
In a cold, northern town in California, one young child is born into the home of a hopelessly, negligent family. Thriving, from an early understanding of her own gifts, Marginal Madge focuses on what she does have, surrounding her soul with faith, and an uncanny ability to find humor in the most ridiculous of circumstances. Will she let her hardships destroy her? or use them to walk into her destiny?
As life seems to pass her by, Marginal Madge only strengthens her gifts, rolls with the punches, moves herself into new territory, and finds out that her life is, in fact, being guided with impeccable direction. Will the grumpy people in her life be touched by her? Will the odds be beaten? Will she find the joy that has seemed to pass her by? What surprises them all is how their stories will intersect … and find healing, when the miserly old Alice Turbantine, makes a decision to hire our Marginal. This decision will change everything … for many people … especially Marginal.
This book is intended for the young at heart.

Reading Marginal Madge is like being on a carnival ride…sometimes smooth—exciting … than many other emotions due to the cautious anticipation of how things will evolve! The description of Seasons, meals, surroundings, helped me pause/relax to read the next page :)—Paula M
