Grateful on this day...



…sixty seven…60 + 7…30 + 30 + 7 = yes, 67!!!


In my thrust to accomplish 100 pre-sales for my book-Life through the Eyes of a Hurricane: Doggie-Dog! I’m realizing the risk I’ve taken by putting myself ‘out there’ regardless of the immense fear of facing rejection are proving to be successful.

Can you believe it? Thirty- three away from my manuscript going into publication; being in print~ a published author, a writer! If you were one who has already purchased a book, I thank you from the deepest crevice of my heart. I truly do: Thank you-I am truly grateful!

So in the final move forward, I ask kindly: if you were one of the individuals that stated, ‘Yes! I will be purchasing a book!’ OR 'I need to do that, just haven't done it yet!' Please do it now. I am 1/3 of the way in reaching that destination of 100…by this time next week, I could possess the dubious honor to have that ‘Goal Reached!’ stamped beside my name on the print-out I receive from my publisher.

Then I’d do cartwheels down the street! …and you think I’m kidding!

I had checked into shipping, Tracy, but it's more than the cost of book, which puts it out of reach for my budget at this time, unfortunately.

You will make it gal. Have you thought of doing an interview with the "Coffee with a Canine" blog?? Just about every one who does is an author and it will help get the word out.

Yay!!! You will make it. A little nerve racking, but the journey is so cool.

Tracy, I am SO PROUD OF YOU for putting yourself OUT THERE! I am one of those friends who has "intened to purchase" the book... but hasn't yet. :o With mom getting sick, me going out of town for close to a month, pouring every extra cent into helping mom get better yada, yada... I procrastinated. BUT I WILL PULL THROUGH FOR YOU (probably first thing in the morning) - AND I JUST KNOW THAT OTHERS WILL TOO! I'm so excited you are almost there! :D
Way to go!

Corine :D

Since Bobbi just purchased your book that must make me number 69! Looking forward to receiving my copy and reading it! I can't wait. I am so happy for you and am glad that I can help you reach your initial goal of 100 copies sold!

Hugs and love,
Debbie
