Good news, bad news.
I will start with the bad so that I can end on a high note (that’s my thing, in case you haven’t noticed).
I had a mild freak-out last week and asked my poor publisher to make some changes to the manuscript. It may have been my way of delaying the production of SMILES AND DUCT TAPE – it’s been hard for me to let go of this project. Anyway, it worked. We’re about a week behind with the release of the book.
The good news is that the book is now with the printer and it should be in your hands by the end of next week. It’s not too late to pre-order – CLICK HERE!
Now I can spend another week walking on eggshells.
I’m guessing all first-time authors are nervous as they brace themselves for the public’s reaction to their writing. Add that I’m a girl who couldn’t really read until fifth grade AND I was not born a writer — just ask my high school English teachers. I feel almost ridiculous adding the title of author to my resume. And, it’s not just my words that I’m worried about releasing for judgment – it’s my family. I’m hoping that people find our story inspiring, but who knows . . .
It’s too late now. The book will be out there soon and, whatever happens, our family will survive. THAT is one thing that I can always count on.
I promise that I AM NOT looking at the book again – no more delays.
