|The surreal feeling of having strangers buy my book at the Answers Mega Conference.|
If you want to check out the pervious three posts in this book birthday blog party, you can find them here, here (don’t forget to play the game!) and here. And what else makes a party better than party favors? So, if you’re in the mood for a gift, head on over to His Princess and Book Nook for your chance at winning something hosted by Noveltea. If you want to find out more fun stuff about Cave Secrets of the Pterodactyl, you can check out the blog tour I did over the six-month anniversary of the book being published. You can find that here.
|A dream come true: My book being advertised by AiG,|
I would have to say, the first year of being published has been amazing. It’s been busy, full, wonderful and crazy. I’ve traveled all over, partly for the book, partly for other reasons. I’ve blogged a lot. I’ve had lots of stuff going on personally and with my work. All in all, it’s been an exciting adventure. In some ways I can’t believe it’s only been a year, in other ways it seems way longer.
|Being thrilled to see my book being sold in the Cumberland Caverns bookstore.|
I didn’t realize how much my focus would change when my book got published. Instead of being able to concentrate only on writing and editing, I now had book signings, blog book tours, reviewers, marketing and all that crazy stuff to think about and work on. In some ways it was a lot more simple to just write, but I’m so, so happy to be at this place right now! It’s the craziest feeling to have a total stranger walk up to me at an AiG event and tell me they’ve read my book and their kids loved it, or that they want a picture with me. It’s always like the “Wait, are you talking to me?” feeling. I’ve even had kids bring their previously bought copy of the book to an event for me to sign. That’s just like Woooow… I mean, I’m just me. 😉 I can’t thank God enough for all He’s blessed me with.
