Little Miss Thing, age 8: “Who’s doing our tuck-ins tonight?”
Me: “Well, I’m the only one here.”
LMT: “OK. I was just hoping Mom could do the tuck-ins. She does them a lot better than you do.”
Me: ”She really does.”
I ain’t even mad.
I’M PUBLISHING A BOOK!
I’ve compiled about 200 pages of my writings into a manuscript. Many of the pieces have appeared on this blog, but much of it is brand new and only available in the book.
It’s a lot of the same kind of stuff, plus a really silly story about that time in college when we made a giant fireball.
The title is How to Raise Viking Children and Other Tales of Woe. I’m thinking it will be $12.95 and should be available on Amazon by Thanksgiving. It will make a great stocking stuffer – just sayin’.
And for those of you who attend local gaming and sci-fi conventions, I plan to debut my book at my author table at Starbase Indy this Thanksgiving weekend. It’s going to be a great time and I’ll be signing books and I’m sure to have a show-only special low price. Plus, you know, hugs.
The process of self-publishing a book has been really eye-opening for me. It seemed so simple but it’s been a real obstacle course. I’ll be sharing more details on my blog of the whole adventure in the coming days and weeks.
My favorite part so far is my pop-up banner for my author booth that just arrived today, so I thought I’d show it off…
I’m so excited! This is one of my longest held dreams, a total bucket list check-off.
Thank you all for the amazing support and encouragement!
