I believe it’s finally happening. I just received the proofs for my first published children’s chapter book! I am so excited. I can’t wait to share it with family, friends, and hopefully many others. It’s a great feeling knowing I am indeed going to be a published author. It’s something I have wanted for so long.
My last post was about not being motivated to write this summer. I wondered what could inspire me to get going again. It’s funny how hearing from your publisher will do the trick. How I wish Randy were here to share in the excitement! He would have called all of our family and friends already to tell them the news. He was such a huge supporter of my writing. I know he is smiling down on me and will be with me throughout this endeavor.
I am proofreading the manuscript and will get it back to them in a day or so. After that I am told it is off to the printer. I’ll keep you posted on its status. Stay tuned.
