Having my first book sell over 140,000 copies has truly been a dream come true for me. It’s been 2 years and I STILL have a hard time believing it! But having my publisher ask me to do a Revised Edition AND now writing a 3rd book- even more unbelievable! I am SO thankful to God and each person that bought my book for making my dreams come true. Believe me if I can do it ANYONE can make their dreams come true 🙂
One of the best parts about seeing my new book was showing my kids their quotes in print. My daughter has her quote on page 74 and my son has his on page 155. Their little faces just lit up when I showed them! What was even better was reading my dedication to them in the front of the book. I LOVE being able to do that and I hope it is something they can pick up and read someday when they are far away from me. I hope it will be a little reminder of how much I love them and that they have the capability of making their own dreams come true.
Speaking of dedication, let me just say it is soo hard to write up the acknowledgments page in a book because there really are SO many people I want to thank. So for those that really do support me but I didn’t have room to mention:
Sara Lewinski-A true friend and constant support for me. Thank you for going to NYC with me when I spoke at the Learning Annex-I will never forget that trip!
Cara Webster-You have always been there fore me and you really did go above and beyond to help me promote my first book. You really should be my publicist!
Jessi Boardman-Thank you for taking time out of your own busy schedule to help me with my book release party and for always helping me bounce ideas around. I am so glad you came into my life.
A HUGE thank you to those people that really supported my first book and/or are always cheering me on: Cindy Pyfrom, Lesley Salman, Anna Pooler, Donna Geitner, Michelle Kelsey, Sue Kautz, Lisa McIntosh, Grandma Van, Michelle Ford, Carrie Ford, Nikki Kmicnski, Lynn Berry, Janis Berry, Ashley Cox, Luke Pariso, Shirley Ford, Shannon Ford, Sherry Ford, Gigi DeGaine, Don Vergils, Karen Valle, Rachel Harmon, Brandy Nicastro, Amanda Gallo, Molly Haungs, Jennifer Meadows, Sara Coryea, Peggy Ford and Mary Audsley.
