Hi guys! Sorry I haven’t updated in a while, but life has been a whirlwind. My book was released in eBook format in September and this October it came out in paperback! Of course the moment it was available on Amazon I was tempted to order a copy even though I put in an order to get some directly from the printer. I resisted, but Chad couldn’t and ordered one on Amazon just in case it might come quicker. 🙂 It didn’t and I got a cute little single book on the exact same day my boxes of books arrived. I can’t even begin to tell you the joy I felt opening that first box and unwrapping that book… MY book. So surreal. It looked so professional and the artwork on the cover looked even better on the actual book than I imagined!
Following this amazing moment, my book release party was scheduled and it was a great success! So many friends and family came out to show their support of Chad and me. It really made us feel loved. We are so blessed to be surrounded by people who want to see us succeed and are truly happy for us.
Now I just need to keep up the momentum! Currently, I am trying to get the word out on my book. I’ve been leaving a trail of bookmarks everywhere I go, plus I plan to do my first school talk next week at Chad’s class. I am so nervous, but I know it will be a good thing. I just have to completely push myself and hope I don’t actually die. It does seem possible. I can see the headlines now. ‘Local Author Dies of Mortification While Speaking in Front Of 3rd Graders.’ If you don’t hear from me after next week, you’ll know what happened.
