That’s the countdown that’s been going off in my head for days. I’ve felt like an astronaut who’s ready to launch. But instead of going up into space, I was counting down the seconds until Diamond Geezer was released.
And now it’s finally here!
After all of the brainstorming, the writing, the editing — and, at times, hair-pulling — my second book officially hit the market today, January 29th, in both paperback and Kindle formats. Even though I’ve been through this once before, there’s just something about seeing your name in print that never gets old.
Neither does the disbelief!
I’ve got the book in my hands right now, and I keep asking myself, “Is this really happening? Did I actually do this? Am I REALLY an author?” Even though I can see it and touch it, it doesn’t seem real. The entire experience is pretty overwhelming. After all, it’s not every day that you get to see one of your lifelong dreams come true!
I would be remiss if I didn’t thank all of YOU for helping me get here. Whether we connected in person or through cyberspace, your support kept me going. It’s also helping me move forward as I start work on book number three! (Despite all of the satisfaction over finishing Diamond Geezer, the third Taylor story is already underway. I’ve even got ideas swirling through my head for books four, five, and six!)
As excited as I am for all of you to experience the ups and downs of the latest Taylor family drama, I hope you can learn something from this journey we’ve taken together. I held onto my dream for decades. I refused to let it go, and I was willing to do whatever it took to make it come true. YOU can do the same thing! No matter what you’re dreaming of, go out and make it happen!
