Today, I received the first copy of my debut book.
I am in awe. Speechless. Overwhelmed.
As I hold this actual, hardbound, jacketed, beautiful book in my hands, I think about all the dreaming and planning, hoping and doubting, working and writing that preceded this moment.
I think about all the people who were instrumental in bringing this book to life: agent, illustrator, editor, entire publishing team, and loving family and friends.
I think about how I get to share this book with the world in just three short months.
I think about how blessed I am.
And I think about how I want to thank each and every one of you in person.
October 29 can't come fast enough. But until then . . .
