Adventures with Paperback


When I hit the publish button on Where Will You Run? uploading my baby to Amazon, I waited impatiently for the page to go live. When it did, I just stared at it. It was so surreal. I was a published author! Even though that was one of the most incredible moments in my life, it didn't compare to the arrival of my first paperback copy. To actually see my name in print on a book...there are no words to describe that feeling. I'll admit it; I was giddy. I jumped around and danced in my living room holding my paperback high in the air. I hugged it. I cried on it. Then...I just got silly. I took a picture of me and my paperback drinking coffee together. I got so much positive feedback from people that I started taking more pictures in what I like to call "Adventures with Paperback." Hope they give you a giggle too.
