“Write. Rewrite. When not writing or rewriting, read. I know of no shortcuts.”
—Larry L. King, WD
Amen to that Larry!
It has taken me almost two years to hear the words, Congratulations, your book is published. Today, I announce that I am now a published author and books will be available soon. While I may not have my biography presented on goodreads or Wikipedia, I will now state that I am an author on my resume. I wrote, rewrote, erased, read more, rewrote, and then rewrote again. It took time. It caused tears and it was hard. It may have been the hardest project I have ever undertaken. But, it is finished. I am published!
Those of you who have been reading this blog while I worked on the book, you know some of my story. You know I want the women of today’s world to be empowered to voice their opinion, to do success their own way, and to stop fearing rejection. With this book, I am a student of my own advice. (Though scary), I will not fear rejection. I will not apologize for my opinions and my vision. I have laid them out for everyone to criticize or to love, and I am okay with either one.
Thank you to everyone who has helped along the way, and thank you to my girlfriends who gave me the courage to commit my words to writing. Help me change the world by ordering a book and sharing the message.
