A couple of days ago I had one of those unforgettable experiences – I got to see my book on the shelves for the first time. Made For Marriage is a June Harlequin Blush release in Australia, after hitting the shelves in the US in January and the UK in March. It was quite a wait since its initial release and when I was out shopping with my sister on Saturday morning we headed for one of the big local chain stores and spotted it. We squeed, hugged and then took a photograph.
Actually, seeing the book on the shelf was all kinds of awesome and I’m so glad my sister was with me to share the moment because she was always one of my strongest supporters during those years when I was writing and submitting and trying to get published.
Of course I’m hoping to have many more books on the shelves . . . but like most ‘firsts’ in life, this one feels extra special.
