As I write this, I am admiring the first copy of my book The Laughing Ladies. Today is the first time I have seen it in print. The cover is glossy and the colors are perfect. When I held the actual book in my hands, I thought I would burst with pride. I now understand the meaning of that phrase, it felt as though my body would not be able to hold in my emotions. I wanted to jump up and down and scream out the news to the immediate universe. What a heady experience to have a three dimensional book instead of a manuscript on a computer screen. This is better...much better.
Now, I must change from a book writer to a book seller. My first piece of marketing is to announce that copies of The Laughing Ladies are available on Amazon (including Kindle), Barnes and Noble and the AuthorHouse bookstore.
