Don't Ever Give Up On Your Dream

I loved the post yesterday and want to tell Michelle that there is nothing like holding your book in your hands. It's a dream come true.

My books for my book signing arrived the beginning of the month and I still love looking at them. My book signing was on Saturday, September 8th, and everyone who came had a great time. I posted about it on my personal blog. All I'll say here is that I sold over 50 books.

For the rest of you DON'T EVER GIVE UP. Sometimes it takes a long time, but the things you write are worthwhile. KEEP WRITING. Some of us have attended writing conference for so long we wonder why something good is not happening to us, but someday it will happen. The more you attend, the more you are learning. I'm still learning and know my writing is improving with each book.

Someday you'll be like me. I had a younger reader of 9 tell me last night, "Your book is so funny. I love it."

This school year I was dropping off my new book to the school library and a girl I know from church said, "I just finished reading your last book. It was so good."

I'm not a big time national writer, and it's not something I've ever planned on doing. I just want to write. I just have to write. It's good to know that those that I'm wanting to reach are enjoying what I have done.

I totally agree about not giving up on your dream. I too have just got an offer to publish my book, and I was so glad I didn't give up.....
I love your blog by the way!
