I finally got a release date for my book. July 18th! I’m so excited. Things are really coming together with this project. I started writing this book about four years ago. Life didn’t allow me to put a lot of time and energy into it but even with limited time I pursued my goal of completing the book.
When I finally finished the book, I realized I had to do something with it. It’s obviously the next step, but it was a very scary step for me. Goals are interesting things when they are in your mind aren’t they? Totally different story when you have to actually put action to them! It’s been a long journey and I know that even at this point, I have so much further to go. But I am making my dream of becoming a published author come true and that makes it totally worth it!
One of the biggest challenges for me so far has been to “market myself”. I am not a very open person and have not been very open about my writing career. In fact,a lot of my family and friends don’t even know I wrote a book. As I step out of my comfort zone- including writing this blog- it feels good to embrace a different side of myself. A side that has to really put myself our there and speak out.I’m nervous, but I’m going to do it! Wish me luck guys!
