I’ve always written.
As long as I can remember, I’ve put pen to paper.
And now it’s keyboard to computer screen…
I’ve not submitted many of my stories through the years, as I didn’t feel they were ready yet. But a couple of years ago that little voice told me to submit a story, about my dad sending me a message long after he had died, for one of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books. And it was accepted, and it’s in the September book – “Dreams and the Unexplainable.”
There are two other women in the Nashville area who also had stories in the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series, and I wanted to bring us all together for an event.
So yesterday was the culmination of years of writing, and honing my craft.
I did my first book signing, with Karen Elley and Deb Zemke, at Words of Wisdom Bookstore. Seeing our poster hanging on the door was a welcome sight!
Karen’s story is about a message she received, and how that stranger’s message would become her spiritual mantra.
Deb wrote about how she found her dog, August, during a turbulent time in her life.
We appreciate everyone who came out to join us, to celebrate with us, and to buy some books!
Thank you, Keith Pruitt and Rebekka Pruitt, for taking a chance on us, and letting us get our feet wet at WOW.
Your generosity is priceless, and who knows?
This could be the springboard for other stories, other books, and maybe even getting my own book out there.
The possibilities are endless!.
