Last Friday I received a nice little surprise from the UPS guy….
Yep. It’s a box of books. MY books. As in, one I wrote.
Boy, it’s days like that Friday when it hits me over the head..”I’m a published author.”
I sometimes can NOT believe it. Still. Even after my third published novel.
Here’s one of me holding the book. Again, that’ll NEVER get old!!
And the first few things I thought….
1. Wish my hubby would get home, like super fast, so I could share this awesome moment with him.
2. Wish Lynn was here to see this.
Well, my hubby arrived home from work just a few minutes later and after much SQUEEING and jumping around (mostly on my part) I went on to thinking about Lynn.
So, I flipped to the dedication to see her name. Even though the LYNN Part on the front of the book is in her honor, I still wanted to see.
October 24th marks one year since cancer took her life. She is one of the main reasons I donate a portion of all my book sale proceeds to cancer research and treatment (American Cancer Society.) Lynn was an inspiration to me, having read the very first thing I ever wrote (and not laughing hysterically at me). She was a great writer. Never pursued publication or anything, but has journals and journals of stuff. And, she wrote something for my wedding day which had everyone tearing up at the church!
She was amazing. So, Lynn, I know you’re sitting at the feet of Jesus right now, chatting it up with him, but I hope you know this book is for you.
