Lots of great ideas

Ever since my Community Ed courses, thousands (well, over stated) of marketing ideas have been flooding through my head for getting my book out there. I am gung ho about this so wish me luck. My motivation to get my book out there and known is far beyond huge. It excites me just thinking about it. In the course, the teacher said, "The only person who can sell your book is you." I love that and truly know that it is true. I did not think back in December when I began writing the book that I would have to become a business woman in marketing my book. It is a little daunting thinking about doing this but with all of my faith and love of "Felicite Comes" I know that I am going to do a great job marketing. I am officially an author and that is awesome. Just a year ago, I would never have thought that would be the case. Just a year ago from right now, I was in Paris just having fun. I did not even think that my time spent there was giving me the ideas for a book. I love how life brings experiences that turn into opportunities. The best thing is, is that I know that God really has his hand in this cause of mine. That makes the road seem a lot easier.
Now just if I could get back to Paris, that would be great!
Anyway, editing is still going, going, going. I decided that I would do one more edit before I let it escape to some great people who have agreed to edit it. Just a little polishing.
My expected date to be published is late this year, early next. More news to come as I decide more.

***Drum Roll***

"Felicite Comes"

Felicite will be Coming soon!

Update on My Book

I am still in the editing process. Have about 110 pages left to edit but I know that a few important and crucial elements to the story need to be added so it will be more than 110 pages to edit. Anyway, I have set another goal to finish my edit by August 14, 2010. Then my dad gets to be the first person to read and edit it. Yikes, this is scary that it is almost to the point that I am letting others read it and edit it. This has been such a huge part of almost eight months of my life and I am about to release it to the public (well my dad). Scary but exciting!

Another important item to discuss, I am going to two community education classes tonight.

#1: How to write you first novel
#2: How to publish your first novel

I have high hopes that these classes will aid me in my writing and publishing process.

Wish me luck!
