The Front Cover!!!
AHHHH!!! There it is!!! Look!! That's my name!!!
I'm sorry for the picture quality, I took a picture of my computer screen!! I was just too excited to share the front cover photo with everyone!! I didn't want to wait until the final proof. I am SUCH a first time author! (And loving every minute of it I promise you!)
I love it! Just love it! It's simple yet elegant, eye-catching but not obnoxious, and it has my NAME on it!! (And it's spelled correctly!!) My heart is beating wildly. I've been staring at this picture all morning. It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen!
With every step on the check list being completed, this becomes more and more "real" to me. There have been bumps along the way, and if it were not for the encouragement of my children and mother, I would have never even pursued the actual publishing in the first place. But this is SO much more exciting than just finishing a book, putting it back on the shelf and not sharing it with anyone!
And while I'm at it, I am so thankful for all the support I've been receiving along this journey. The moments can get over-whelming at times and I am so grateful to have people around me to keep me encouraged and constantly pushing me to the end goal. (Not to mention listening to ateeny tiny bit of whining and complaining the might have happened a time or two...) I am so very blessed.
Front cover... check!
