In the journey toward her first published book, Jennifer Dominick Stephens is asking others to reveal who has truly blessed them.
The 1994 graduate of Monroeville High School has been working on "The Hearts Journey Home," a Christian fiction novel for two years.
"I'm in the line-up for publication in January 2010," the mother of two said. "I'm asking my readers to nominate someone who's made a difference in their lives, a man and a woman," she said. "Just a little paragraph about who's made a difference and why they've made a difference."
The contest, open to anyone, started July 7 and will conclude September 7.
The winner will receive a special acknowledgment in her book and a copy.
"I'll also name a character after them and model the character after them," Stephens said.
