The Book Is Written

Finally. The edits will have to suffice. You must stop at some point. I am so anxious to get on with another project. The next story is percolating and waiting, impatiently. I must confess I’ve been so excited about this next phase, turning this manuscript into a book.

The Teacher Becomes the Student

My husband and I enjoy the distinct pleasure of having an author for a daughter.  She has been an invaluable help to me in these last months while I’ve been finishing up this book. She is a dedicated, very thorough writer with six published books and the seventh written and in the editing stages. She started writing when she was eight and became determined in her teens to bring her book to publication. She has since become a successful independent author with her own publishing company. The path she traveled to get there was hard-won, taking a great deal of self-teaching and learning about her craft and the ins and outs of self-publishing. I have benefited greatly from all she has learned, and I am so grateful for her help.

A New Indie Author

I love to write. I have always loved it, and though I have needed to set my writing aside from time to time through the years, while raising three children and home schooling each of them through high school, I have always wanted to become a published author. Writing is what I do. When I'm not writing, I long to be writing.

I'm also a DIY kind of girl. Self-publishing is right up my alley. I am about to begin self-publishing my first book, Wooing Sam Walker's Widow. Just the thought of that causes a leap in my heart! along with a crazy amount of apprehension. Will anyone even like this story? But in the end, this is something I've longed for, worked hard for, and I am so excited to be able to do it. That alone is pretty fabulous. Smile
