Back Cover Text

Today, Mom and I worked on the back cover text for The Pirate Daughter's Promise.  I wrote it and then she helped me re-write it.  We'll probably do a little more to it.  I can't wait until it's done.  I'd like to give the text to a few people so they know what the book is about.  I can't wait until Pleasant Word actually starts working on everything.  It will be fun to see the progress.

Manuscript and Cover Photo

ist2_1531851_tall_ship_sunset I was able to get a lot done on my book before I went to work yesterday.  I actually sent in my manuscript and, guess what, I found a photo at iStockphoto for my cover!  I really like it.  I can't believe now I know what my book will look like.  That's amazing.  Wow, I can't believe I sent my manuscript.  It's in the hands of professionals!  How exciting!  It's still hard to believe this is really happening.  It's a dream come true.  After all the months I prayed it would happen, it's happening!  :)

I'm an author!

It has actually really happened, I'm an author!!  We signed up at Pleasant Word and paid for it this morning!  I already have an ISBN number for my book (a small thing, but still incredibly exciting) and a project manager!  I've been writing for all these years, since I was eight, and now I'm actually getting a book published!  I've been waiting for this day for months.  This is amazing!
