I’ve been writing for eleven years now, but on the 14th of this month, I enjoyed a first in my writing career: a book in print! I’ve had short stories in print books, short stories in magazines both with and without bylines. I’ve had books, a novella and short stories in electronic form, but I’d never had a book in print with my name on the cover.
Introducing: A SUITABLE WIFE in print! It was a heady feeling to open that box and see not one, not two but lots of copies of a book I authored. Like other authors have done, I had to take a picture to commemorate the event.
I’ve had other firsts lately:
First time to have a book available in both e-book and print.
First time to order professional business cards.
First time to order a postcard.
First time to order bookmarks.
First time to order “Autographed by the Author” stickers.
And like a goof, I took pics of those too.
This is already an exciting year for me and it’s not even half over. A busy, busy year, but rewarding. If all goes well, I should have Her Unexpected Family available in print in June, and more books to come, both in electronic and print.
Have you enjoyed any firsts in your life lately?
