I’m proud to say my first book review has been posted and I must say, I’m flattered and deeply humbled by the experience! To have someone read and enjoy something I wrote is beyond my wildest dreams! I can’t contain the excitement 😀 !
Thank you so much Mandy for taking the time to read my book and providing your feedback! It’s greatly appreciated and I truly hope you enjoyed it!
Please check out the page on my blog, titled Playing with Fire, to purchase a copy of my book.
Not many people get to say that they saw their dreams come true in their lifetime. Today, 4/14/16, I can say that I saw my dream come true. Anyone who knows me knows that I probably would have never seen this coming out of my life.
I am now known as a published author.
And I don’t care if I never sell but one copy, I don’t care if only my family supports me, I don’t care if everyone who reads it hates it….
I made it happen, and the joy I feel in my heart right now knowing that I had a dream and I worked hard to accomplish it, makes this moment that much more amazing to me.
I may not become as famous and big as any of my favorite authors, or any other indie authors out there, but hey…I’m here. And now I can tell people
“Yea, I published a novel.”
This is big for me, y’all. And I appreciate all that support me near and far. It’s truly appreciated.
Just closed my book after my final read through. It wasn’t bad; a few grammatical things and stuff, nothing too bad. I think some of it came with the formatting. Now here’s where we’re at:
Final proof submission.
It’s becoming real for me now. #PWF coming soon world.
So, I’m noticing things as I read:
1. Not a bad book for my first one…if I do say so myself; and I’m my worst critic.
2. Definitely some things I’m planning on fixing or have fixed along the way (is this a bad thing? Since I’ve already had a proof printed?)
3. The responses I’ve gotten about my book have been overwhelming. I’m so grateful for friends and family who are willing to support me. I definitely appreciate all the love I’ve gotten, and I hope the world loves PWF!
Now, back to reading….people are waiting on me #PWFComingSoon 🙂
So I got my proof copy of Playing with Fire today, and I’m experiencing a flurry of emotions. Most of all, I’m excited. I’m beyond excited and I have no idea how to deal with all this positive energy. Let me tell y’all something about me:
When I say I’m an average person, I mean AVERAGE. I don’t boost myself up, I’m not overly confident; if anything, I’m extremely humble. I don’t make a big deal about myself, I’m just Whitney. Calling myself an author is completely shocking, I still can’t believe it.
I just got through putting the finishing touches on the interior and cover for my novel. I am beyond EXCITED!! I submitted it for review so now I am going to patiently wait to receive a yay or nay on if it is approved. Then I can order a proof and actually have my first unofficial copy of my book in my hands.
Excuse me while I turn up! 🙂
