It's Live

I uploaded my book to Amazon and it didn't look right on their preview. So, I worked on the formatting again and again and again. I finally found a way to make the indents work right. Then there were 2 hypens I couldn't get deleted. Finally found that problem. So, I uploaded the book again - with a new cover picture I had taken at the beach a few years ago - and now it looks pretty good. The only problem I'm having now is the chapter headings are off centered. I guess I'll have to deal with that.

Anyway, I digress... MY BOOK IS LIVE!!!!!!!!!!! On Amazon!!!! It's unreal! I'm hoping that once the description gets put on there, that people will get interested and they'll buy it.

What are you waiting for??? GO! BUY! READ! :)

Moms Always Know

A conversation with my 3 year old today.

She was showing me a picture she had made and started doing the very obvious potty dance.

Me: Nanoo, do you have to go potty?

Nanoo: No.

Me: Are you sure? You're dancing.

Nanoo: I'm dancing like a princess.

She then starts dancing harder, faster, and all over the room.

(She ended up going potty just a few minutes later)

Too cute.

I Did It!

I uploaded my first book to Amazon. I had some trouble with the formatting, so I hope that once the good people over there look at it, they'll fix it. I'd hate to have my book up there with the margins all funny looking.

It's supposed to be up within 48 hours. Not sure if that'll happen on a weekend.

I'm so anxious! It's hard to be excited when there's no guarantees. But, there aren't any guarantees in life. Gotta take a chance sometimes. I hope there are people out there somewhere that will read it and like it!

So, book #2 is being looked at by some friends of mine. And I'm working on book #3.

6 Months Old

My baby turned 6 months old. I can't believe so much time has passed since I gave birth to her. She brightens my day every time I look at her. She's such a beautiful, special little girl. I am truly blessed.
