When I was 12 years old, I dreamed of getting published. I knew that if I worked hard, little by little, I would be successful. I write story after story with the intention of making a difference. To me, it’s not at all about the money. It’s about your story becoming all it can be with God’s help alone, inspiring others through the hard earned lessons taught and fought within the story! 🙂
I am now to reveal the big surprise!! 🙂 Last Friday, I signed, dated, and sent off my very first book contract of my life! 🙂 I am now the proud and excited author of a wonderful traditional publishing company: eTreasures Publishing!! 🙂 They shall receive the contract today in the mail. I am so very excited about this! This is an ultimate dream come true! I submitted my novel, “The Magic Suitcase” to them in September 2014. I got offered a contract last March. And now, with the tentative release date of February 8, 2016, I can say that I will be a published author! 🙂
Some people think being a writer is easy, that all that you do is write whatever and it gets published.
No. Being published is a once in a lifetime opportunity, a dream that could come true if you work your very hardest and research all that you can about writing, events within the novel story, and publishing to make it come true. It took me 2 years to write this book. And now, I can happily say that it will be my first published novel! 🙂
Check out my “Debut Novel” page as soon as you get a chance! It will enlighten you with the story’s overall plot!
I’d like to also take this chance to thank God for blessing me with this amazing gift of being a writer! 🙂 There’s no other passion in my life that I am more proud of. Also, I’d like to thank my husband and family, along with all my friends, for your constant support, encouragement, and love! Thank you to my husband especially for always encouraging me to write and get it done, even when I was procrastinating! 🙂
Finally, thank you to all of my Twitter, WordPress, and Facebook friends! Without you this wouldn’t be possible! 🙂
