I'm excited to report that my book is complete and available at Amazon. I've waited a long time to hold that book in my hand and I have to say I was not disappointed when I received the first print copy. What a thrill.
This is a story I've worked on for ten long long years. It took that long to give birth to it.
I'm not disappointed. The writing and rewriting that went into it has paid off.
Now, perhaps when I read it over in this paper format I'll see mistakes and kick myself for not going over it one more time. But honestly I reviewed and reviewed it until the lines sentences words all become one big glop of black on a white page. I could no longer see mistakes, could barely even see the story. So I sent it to the press.
I'm praying that Vada Faith will shine and that I've made the story into one that is worth reading.
Right now I'm trying to complete the proofing of a book of short stories to get on Kindle this summer. I'm not making much progress.
I took time out to go to the West Virginia Writer's conference and it was worth the time and money and effort. What a fun time we had. It's always fun seeing old faces, making new friends and learning a few new writing tips.
What have you been into this summer? I've read very few blogs so this week I need to spend one afternoon doing just that.
I have a medical thingy at hospital on Weds and hoping after that is over that I'll feel much better and ready to tackle my work. Plus the triplets and their little brother will be here mid week. That means lots of chaos, fun, and craziness. Papa R and I love when they hit town. Our lives are topsy turvy for a few days. WE get exhausted literally and then they are gone in a whirlwind, leaving us missing them, sad that they are gone and picking up the pieces til next time.
Hope you are having some adventure in your lives. If you don't write, what do you do when you have free time. I don't get out much. SHARE please.
BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL. Have a great week.
From Rainy OHIO.
