Semi-recently, I got my second proof copy of JE in the mail (we’re getting close to release, everyone!). 😀 And so I thought that now was a good time to share a post I wrote quite awhile ago, but never actually posted! Yep, a bit crazy of me . . . but anyway!
The following post is about the most exciting package I ever received in the mail! My very first real-life copy of Jayne’s Endeavour!! 😀
And that’s where the excitement and confetti comes in! 😀
As I mentioned, I never posted this at the time and since then my book has gone through major edits with a professional editor. But, getting that proof copy was EXCITING!!!! And I really want to share the excitement of that moment with you all!
So I couldn’t resist finally posting this post! Better late than never, right?! 😉
Guess what arrived in my mailbox a few short weeks ago?!?! The thing I’ve been awaiting for YEARS!!!
Proof copies of my debut novel, Jayne’s Endeavour. And let me just say that proof copies = one excited author!! I’m very pleased to finally have a copy on my bookshelf! 😀
Now to get reading so it’s ready to release! 😀 😀 😀
It was such a wonderful feeling to hold the thing I’ve been working on for so long in my hands. Finally the words and images on my computer screen are a real book!!! I think it took all day for it to really and truly sink in!
Jayne yawned as they rode to church the next morning. All around them the birds chirped and the sun shone. Everything seemed to defy the sorrow of the night before. Even the crisp wind that toyed with her hair seemed to be inviting her to lay aside her cares. Jayne threw her head back, letting the sun warm her face. She wouldn’t fight the freshness of the morning.
–Chapter 8, Jayne’s Endeavour
If you read my first blog post as an author, you would have seen that I also got a new harp recently. Well it actually arrived the same day as my proof copies. It was a LOT of excitement and fun for one day!! 😀
Yep! You can see the excitement in my face alright! 😀 I enjoyed going over this post again and being reminded of that happy day! Hope you all enjoyed getting to share the moment with me too!
And stay tuned because I’m going to be announcing the release date NEXT WEEK! So it’s almost time for more confetti! 😉
