THE DARLINGTON SOCIETY, charter members
First, thank you all for your kind, heartfelt comments and interest in joining me in this writing journey. I’m flattered, honored, humbled. This was a tough decision, I won’t mince words about it. Some of you I know via the internet, a couple I know personally, but most only casually or not at all.
Let me clear one thing up: I don’t like hurting feelings. Not my personality at all. I’m not a “Oh, well, they’ll get over it” kind of person. If I could I would have chosen all of you. Part of the reason I originally wanted to do the first-come, first-serve thing was so I didn’t have to choose and therefore leave some out. But after some good counsel and prayer I realized that probably wasn’t the most prudent way to go about it. So I had to choose . . . and there were only 25 slots.
For those of you not chosen please believe me when I say it’s nothing personal and that I feel terrible leaving anyone out. I have an advantage in that I know what this next nine months will bring (or at least I think I know, one never really knows) and, after prayer, I tried to match the members with what’s coming just over the horizon. And with that in mind, I believe the right 25 were chosen for this specific nine-month period in my life. Time will show that. If you weren’t chosen this time I hope you’ll stick with me and my books and apply again next time around.
So . . . without further ado. Here are the 25 charter members of The Darlington Society. (I’ll be contacting all of you via email in the next week or so).

Congratulations! I’m very excited about this Society and where life will take us. Hang tight and be looking for an email from me in the next week or so (I need a few days to get my ducks in a row, notify my publisher, do some organizing). God bless!
