Today I am filled with gratitude. You see tomorrow is the release of my second historical fiction title, Stealing Mr. Smith so my heart is singing with gratitude. This sense of gratitude though, does not come without the packaging of chaos. There are many tasks to accomplish, loose ends to wrap up, and readers to engage with.
Despite the many demands ahead of me, I am grateful that I have the opportunity to be in this exact moment. I have immense gratitude for the opportunities I have, to follow this dream of being a writer. I love being a writer. Immersing myself in the lives of my characters is like hanging out with old friends. Watching a setting unfold, is equivalent to visiting a long ago town built on hard work and simple values.
It is with the end product of a book, a story to share with others that makes my heart soar. So, tomorrow I begin my day by sharing all that I’ve worked on for the past several months with readers around the world. Some have been patiently waiting for the continuation of the story. Others have no idea it exists at all. Either way, this journey to the publication day was not reached alone, and that is what I am most grateful for.
Today, I am thinking of all the people who helped me navigate this path to publication. It is a list not unlike what you will find at the back of any author’s book. That list of people who coddled, protected, and supported the book’s life up to its publication day and beyond.
So, even among the chaos of a book launch, I want to take the time to show gratitude and appreciation for those individuals who helped bring Stealing Mr. Smith to life. I simply couldn’t have done it without you.
The story continues with Stealing Mr. Smith on September 25th, but if you’d like to pick up your copy of Becoming Mrs. Smith first, you can grab yours now and take advantage of the SALE pricing at your favorite online retailer.
