my book

The door bell rang.
I went to the door.
A box.
20141217_110624I opened it gently and peeked inside.
Books, a stack of books.
Real hard covered books.  Books that you can buy.  They smell like books.
The pages feel slippery and real.
There is a dust jacket with words about me, the author.  For heaven’s sake, there is an ISBN number!20141217_110641
20141217_111026My book.  The back cover even has a picture of me!
I wrote a book for my grands.
I have a good lump in my throat.
I can’t believe it.
If we still filled out IRS forms and you had to write what you do…………………………..
instead of housewife, mom, grandma and business owner…
I would write: author20141217_111807
Amazingly happy author.

    1. Thanks for celebrating with me.
      I worked for 40 minutes today, figuring out the selling process.
      I think it will be amazon.
      I set it aside for today.

      I am just giddy with looking at the book.
      I promise to let you know, when we have a book tour in your neighborhood. Ha.
      Thanks for always , always encouraging me to “try”.
