"Pre-Published" NO LONGER!

I got the news on Friday... It's now Sunday, and I have finally stopped shaking. And not shaking in the terrified, just-watched-horror-movie-all-alone-and-power-went-out type of way. More like, shaking because...


I'M OFFICIALLY AN AUTHOR!!!!!!!!!



Whew! Feels good to get that out!! But, yes... The time has come, and I am thrilled. MeeGenius! decided that even though I didn't win the Author Challenge, they wanted to publish my book anyway. I am still dizzy from trying to figure out what all this means, but I know that, if nothing else, my self-esteem has changed forever!!

My eBook, Waiting for James in a Sea of Pink, illustrated by the AMAZING Tyler Parker , is now available! You can click on the link at the end of this post to check it out! MeeGenius is neat because they give you a couple-page preview of each of their books.

Big congratulations to ALL the winners, but most especially to my friend, Jennifer Young! Her book, POISON APPLE PIE , has been published as well. Thank you MeeGenius!!! What a fantastic opportunity; I cannot WAIT to share this book with the rest of the world!!


Without further adieu...
