Without going into all the details of putting a book together, I'll just say I've had LOTS of work in the last few months. I'm confident that my stories are good enough, but every once in a while, doubts did creep in. Half the time I kept waiting for the publisher to contact me and tell me they'd made the offer to the wrong person. However, when I got the cover, I figured I was safe and then began making plans for promotion, which is crazy overwhelming but so much fun! (Sometimes it's more fun than the actual writing!)
Two days ago my book went up my publisher's website under the "Coming Friday" logo. I can't tell you how giggly I got reading that! To know that something I created would soon be available for anyone who wants it...WOW! It's amazing and unbelievable and humbling all at the same time. And I know now this is EXACTLY the career I want. Hopefully HER HIGHLAND CHAMPION will be the first of many books I'll get to share with you!
I started celebrating 2 weeks ago and haven't stopped yet. Here are some pictures of my celebration.
Two of my brothers and me for St. Patrick's Day
Flowers from one of my brothers & sisters-in-law

The cool treats my friends gave me (in addition to my dinner)
for my book hitting the cyber shelves!
I've also gotten some great emails, tweets and FB messages from people. I'm a pretty lucky lady! Thanks for letting me share my day with you. Now I MUST get back to writing the next story!
