The Birth of My Book!

When I was eight, I wrote this:

And: "When i grow up, I am going to be a writter" (Continue reading at your own risk...)

When I was sixteen, I wrote this:

"Many people long for the day when the copies of their first book arrive in the mail, including myself. I will finally have in my hands the book that I’ve worked on for so long! ... Anticipating the day that I will receive that package in the mail is what keeps me writing." (Continue reading "The Birth of Your Book"

And the other day, I received this:

These past few months, there has been much anticipation created--beta readers reading the proof copy, seeing the official book cover, seeing my book on Amazon and Goodreads, etc. Doing these things has made this dream more of a reality, and I can see how the anticipation of having a baby could be similar, especially while you prepare wait for the day that your baby will arrive. Mine is finally here. And I cannot wait to share it with all of ya'll in two months.

Dreams really do come true. =) 


  1. That's awesome. I'm happy for you. :)

  2. I know how exciting this must be for you. I think it's beautiful how you've been working so hard to make your dream come true. You're a true inspiration.

    This is my dream, too...

  6. So happy for you! I felt the same way when I held my proof for the first time. It's about to be born. ;) Praying for a wonderful start to your book's publication!
