Mabel Hartley the Mummy’s Cape arrived in paperback this week and she’s already her way with stops at the local library and four local stores on my island. Tomorrow we had down Vancouver Island for more book store stops and making connections with local book sellers.
It’s a very momentous time, to work on a project for eight years and then finally, have it come to fruition. I really thought I would never publish in paperback because of the costs. Yet now having published two books myself, in paperback, with a third on the way in September, all the parts of my world seem to be in perfect symmetry.
As if to celebrate this great accomplishment of getting my books out into the world and learning about marketing tools and publicity, I am finding more and more that this is something I could happily spend the rest of my life consumed with.
But with this publishing effort I have been able to lay down the books. And now I am making peach pies, with peaches from our garden, pear jam and tomatoe, apple and rosemary jam with tomatoes from my neighbors garden. Life feels so right. And so very rich. Thanks for accompanying me on this ride.
