The Everything Green Wedding Book

My book finally has a cover so everyone can see what it looks like. Since this is my first book bear with me cause it is all new and exciting to me. I think its cool seeing a book cover with my name on it.

This past week I've been working on some edits for the book, searching for a few stats and clearing things up for my editor. Not as bad as I thought it would be.

I'm starting to work on early promotion for the book, that's an interesting process. There's so much more to being a writer than most people think. It's not all ta-da look I wrote a book and now I'm a millionaire. Not even close. There's the idea, the proposal, the research, the writing, the editing, etc then hopefully the publishing then the promotion (not necessarily in that order) then you may make a little bit of money. I wonder how many really good books does it take to become a millionaire writer. Will one bestseller do it? I don't know. Hopefully one day I will.

Anyway, since I've been working on TEGWB edits and promotion, I haven't got a whole lot of other writing done. PLus it is summer, my kids are home and I've been way distracted. I have a million ideas but I can't seem to get anything down on paper. Soon...very soon...
