That's my third book...on the right side of the screen. Yup. I finished the first draft and it's out to beta readers. But let me give you some other cool news.
Last weekend I went to a baby shower (I'm in favor of any party celebrating babies...and pregnant moms, of course). I sat down next to my girlfriend's sister and she said something funny. "Oh... I get to sit next to an author!"
To my right was my daughter and to her left was an empty chair. It was ME she was referring to! How cool is that? She'd read my first book and liked it! Said that she enjoyed YA.
Then...as if that was not enough to make my heart sing...I got a message from a former neighbor. She called the second book fabulous - which when you look it up in the dictionary means: amazingly good, wonderful, mythical.
Lastly, a reader of the draft of the third book said it was the best book yet. Ok...it was my daughter. But, I'm still holding on to that! I'll get the comments from the rest of the readers and then it goes to the editor. I'm starting to get the hang of this..
The last book in the series exists only in glimpses in my head. Charging unicorns. Magic manuscripts. Stubborn heroines. Frankly, its scaring me. It's supposed to be the grande finale, the book that ties everything up, the story that brings a smile to your face and a wish that it would never end. NO pressure. But here's the deal. I know how it ends. I just have to get us all there and trust me...I working on it!
I want to say a big thank you for all the kind words and support that I've had on my writing adventure. I started out thinking this was a lone endeavor but it turns out that a lot of people have helped me in so many ways. Like my son - who helped me get on instagram this weekend!
