Yesterday was a very exciting (and terrifying) day for me. I finally, after five, (maybe six), years, published my very first book, Where the Bluegrass Grows. The synopsis is below.
It was beyond exciting because, after years of writing, loving, hating this thing, my hard work came to fruition, and I was able to actually physically hold my book in my hands. I was able to turn the pages. The cover, picture and design by my husband, looked colorful and brilliant. I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I’ve always wanted to be a full-time author.
It was also beyond terrifying because, omg, all of my hard work is out there. And people I know were buying it. If they hated it, they’d be like, remember that time Laurie wrote this horrible book? I felt incredibly stressed; I have a thick skin, but I’ve also never done anything like this before. Yesterday was an #allthefeels day, for sure.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend and thanks for stopping by!!
