Getting Published

Yeah, this time it is my turn.  Whoohoo!

It is exciting and terrifying in the same breath.  Yes, I am a published children’s author.  I would also like to share a bit of the journey because it is not at all as glamorous as it sounds.  Well worth it, every step of the way.

Let me inform you that you learn quite a lot about yourself as a human that your writing talents and technical skills.

It has always been a dream, since childhood, to become a published author.  Yet, I never anticipated the reality that it might manifest in any stage of my life.

My children love books, I love books and it is probably the first thing I spend money on.  But have you seen the market these days?  It is paperback, hardcover, ebook, audiobook etc?  The effort and the expenses, and if you do it all yourself, it is endless frustration, judge learning curve, etc, etc.

To be frank, the most amazing part of this journey was the people that I met, and am still meeting. The people who made it, international bestsellers, they are humble enough to share their time and patience and experience.  Freely!  Say what?  Yeah, Freely!

Amazing.  Well, I have to go to bed to get some beauty sleep, because there are about a week and a half left until the book launch.

Hope I see you there!
