I’ve been so exhausted, that I haven’t had the energy to write. Thank God for mothers. My mother sent me an email she received and it’s adorable. It made me wish I had done something similar.

Who remembers the day they received their first book proof? More specifically, who remembers the emotions they experienced the day they received their first book proof? I remember sort of camping out at home waiting on a call from the UPS Store, saying the package had arrived.

The day my life changed, my mom and dad were out running errands when I got the call, saying package had arrived. I called my mom and asked her to pick up the package for me.

When she got home and handed me the package, it was like Christmas and my birthday at the same time. Then I opened it and I was instantly deflated because the cover was horrible. My disappointment was short lived and quickly replaced with excitement, because it was my baby…my first book. The tangible proof that I was an author.

This post by NICKI KOZIARZ, resonated with me, because it was a reminded me of everything I experienced when I received my first book proof. I hope this story brings back or reminds you how it felt the first time you saw your hard work come to life.

Here’s the link.  Nicki Koziarz [It’s a sweet story.]

  • Rewrite Retreat

    Happy September and Happy Labor Day. Last month I did something I have never done before…a writing retreat.

  • Who’s On Your Team?

    In an attempt to get back on track this year, I set up three preorders. What was I thinking?

  • Mid Year Goal Check

    I had a plan for how I was going to promote this book, but that never really happened…not fully.  With all that was going on in my personal life, I found myself second guessing a few things.  How to promote a book in a series when it ends on a cliff?  How much should you spend on advertising?  What about the cover…is it too racy?  And let’s not forget my editor hit me with a major curve.
