This Is Really Real!

Well, it’s been a while since I updated any information on here! So much has happened in the 3 1/2 weeks that “Perfect Scents” has been published. I can hardly believe it’s been that long, yet it feels like it happened yesterday. Wow. I’ve been able to experience a lot in the last fewCover weeks with doing my first author takeover and HOLDING MY FIRST BOOK IN MY HANDS!!! That’s right, the paperback is available now too! There’s nothing quite like holding a book in your hands with your name on it and your guts spilled across the pages inside. I also did my first signed book giveaway, and signed the first paperback! What a moment! There are no words to describe these small moments (small to the world but large for me!).

At first none of this felt real. It was like a dream. The day the book came out I was in a giddy haze that almost had me crying (almost, but I’m not a crier). Since thBacken I’ve had wake up after wake up that this is really happening! Like, the other day I was driving to work, or something like it where I had plenty of time to think, and I realized┬áthat I actually have fans of my book who aren’t family or friends! People I’ve never met or heard of like my book! My book gave them a book hangover! Seriously??? That’s for real! Something I wrote, something that was never to see the light of day outside of my la
ptop and apartment has people hanging on for Book 2.I have people asking when Book 2 is coming out!!! Wow!

I’m not tSpinerying to brag. That’s not what this post is about. This is just me coming to reality that my dream has been coming true, and it’s taken a lot of hard work to get here, and it’s even still hard as I try to market and get my book into more hands
and finish the rewrite of Book 2. I’m having a hard time concentrating on it tonight, so I wanted to update this.

This rollercoaster ride has just begun. I’ve made so many new friends through this experience, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and I will continue to do so. There’s no turning back now. I’m in this for the long haul!!!
