Nearly two weeks after our York Book Expo I am still basking in the afterglow. It was a huge success thanks to all the participating authors, but most of all to organizer, Demi Stevens of Year of the Book Press.
After almost a year of waiting for this special event, one might expect to experience a huge let-down once it was over. However, for me at least, this was not the case. So many wonderful memories were made that day thanks to all those who came out to see us. From the time the doors opened until the realization that we had reached the ending time of five o’clock, I enjoyed visits with wonderful friends, family members, and other book lovers. It was such a joy that I’m already looking forward to doing it again next year. I truly appreciated everyone who helped me celebrate the release of my first children’s picture book, The Greatest Aunt. My only regret was that the time flew by so quickly that I didn’t find time to see many of my fellow authors.
Of course I can’t continue to ride this wave of exhilaration forever, so now what? Well, I certainly don’t plan on stopping here. I anticipate releasing my first novel by December 2015! Yes, that’s right. My manuscript is with my editor now, and it will most definitely need some revision when I get it back, but I am determined to stick to this timeline. So please watch for updates…it’s coming soon! Oh, what are you watching for, you ask? You’re watching for Out of the Storm!
