I remember walking back down the aisle as a newly minted Mrs. My young and handsome husband at my side. We walked into a small room and smiled like children at each other.
“Is that it?” I said. “We’re married? All we did was stand there?”
Then we laughed some more.
We had prepared and planned. We had talked and argued and endured ridiculous nonsense to plan our wedding. And then we were married. In the blink of an eye. And of course that wasn’t “it.”
Today, my first novel is available on kindle, and will shortly be in Nook and paperback. This isn’t my first rodeo, but it’s my first independent effort. And I suspect, for someone whose dream was to publish books, I will never get tired of seeing my name on the cover of those things.
Still. I’m excited. And nervous. And scared. What ifs are banging against me like so many metronomes.
I’d be so honored if you’d take a peek at this new book. And if you happen to like it, or love, please share that with your circles of friends. Below is a summary and above is a link that will take you right to the kindle page.
