I squealed with excitement and slapped my daughter's shoulder to get her attention and showed her. Then I saw my book on the little shelf (see off to the right of the big picture) and I squealed some more. I didn't care if I drew attention to myself. I was excited to see my print book. FINALLY!! As soon as my Editor and the Marketing Director showed up, I took a seat at the little table and started signing - very surprised to see that I had a line of people waiting!!
What excited me even more was when people told me they'd read about my book in a magazine and couldn't wait to get a copy. Then to have one of them want to take their picture with me.... WOW! What a thrill that was!
My publisher had a box full of my books. I'm not sure if it was 48 or 50, but I sold nearly every one of them!!! Never in my life had I felt like an author and to think this is just the beginning! (grins)
You can't tell I'm excited, can you?
And this is the wonderful Marketing Director and Cover Artist - Amy.
THANK YOU WALNUT SPRINGS PRESS FOR MAKING MY DREAM COME TRUE!
P.S....your book store can order my book now. (grins)
