My mom was at my house when my author copy came in the mail, and it was the most surreal feeling to see her flip it open to random page, because the first thing that came to my mind was, "Oh, I wrote that by the pool last year." These are my words that I wrote down over the past few years of my life, and now anyone can buy them and hold them and put them on a shelf.
Words truly cannot express how that feels, so instead of trying--and failing--I thought we could talk about how I will forever be indebted to you if you feel inclined to support my book through any of the following ways.
R A T I N G S. Did you buy my book? First of all, THANK YOU. I owe you a cupcake. Second of all, it would be awesome if you could leave a rating on whatever site you bought it. See those little stars next to my book? They're just waiting on you to click on them. Unless you hated it. Just kidding. But not really.
S O C I A L. Are we friends on twitter and instagram? We should be. Use #happytobealive2014 to talk about my book! Take a picture of it, tweet a quote from it, or just say hello! I think it's going to be super cool to be able to search that hashtag and see my book's journey.
G O O D R E A D S. Do you have a Goodreads account? Add my book to your to-read shelf! And if you've read it, leave me a review on there!
R E V I E W S. Do you talk about books on your blog? Because that would be awesome. Email me and we can talk about getting a book in your hands!
It's a wild and crazy and scary time. But I'm following my dreams, and that's worth more than I know how to put into words.
Have you ever jumped all in and followed a dream of yours?
