contracts! Blog tours! book club events, and (shewwww!!) trying to keep up!
The cool thing is that in the middle of all the craziness and the breakdowns, and in the middle of the pout faces and the hair pulling, It's awesome to look up and see...... MY BOOK COVER? Huh? what?
PINCH ME! So wait...I've really done this?
(Ha! see there Mrs. Horn?? Your seventh grade writers class was not a waste and I told you I would get better!!) I've really stuck to one of my childhood dreams and I've actually carried the task through? Even when it was slashed from indention to indention with edits? even when I had to chop off the first five chapters and start again? I did it! What will I feel when I hold it in my hand? I can remember the way I bounced and ran through my home when my first copy of HOME AGAIN arrived. It was my short story in an anthology! But to look in the book and see my name and to look on the back and see my picture among the other 7 authors...it was mesmerizing! BUT NOW...my book, Author Shenette Jones, My novel, wow!! I know that all my greater than great Author friends may be thinking, "Shenette..chill out, gosh it's just a book!" but JUST ONE MEANS JUST ANOTHER AFTER THAT!
DID I MENTION THAT THIS BOOK IS GOOD?? Of course I should endorse it and approve this message because I wrote it, but seriously...It's got JUICY on the edge drama, but a faith driven message to make you cuddle up just in time for the holidays!!! I think I wanna take myself out on a date and celebrate my book! SHE'S ALMOST HERE! (doin my happy dance)
