Happiness Posted on January 19, 2020 by Debbie Real elation is when you feel you could touch a star without standing on tiptoe. ~Doug Larson, columnist and editor Seeing my first book On the shelf of our library Just makes my heart soar! Related
Well, isn’t that wonderful? Seeing your first book on a shelf of my library is pretty special, too!
Golly, thank you, Linda! I’m delighted to hear my debut is on one of your shelves, too!
That’s so exciting!
Thanks, Dawn. I don’t like to toot my own horn, but I’ve been a library-geek for most of my life, and seeing my book shelved locally is a humbling experience.
Congrats, Debbie! That’s AWESOME! I am so proud of, and happy for you!
Makes my heart soar as well.
Have a super Sunday, my friend! X
Thank you, Ron. I suppose, because as a kid I had a library card from a very young age (and read practically everything in the kids’ section!), it just means a LOT to know other folks in my hometown can now read something I wrote. It’s like when I was a working journalist, and somebody would let me know they’d read something I’d written in the paper and enjoyed it.
Happy Sunday to you — are you finally getting some SNOW??? xx
Congratulations! How awesome!
Thanks so very much, Cindy!
Outstanding! Standing ovation. And I bet the library is pretty proud too!
*blushing furiously* Thank you, my friend. It might just mean a little more knowing the head librarian asked me for a copy, too, rather than my having to force it upon them, ha!!
What a thrill. Congratulations.
It is indeed, John. Thank you! Doesn’t pay squat, but the thrill is priceless.
I hear you.
Oh, how exciting, Debbie! Bet you could jump right over that star! How’s book 2 coming along?
Thank you, FF, for bringing me back to Earth, heehee! Book Two actually is coming along. It’s my goal (not New Year’s Resolution, for most of us fail at those by mid-February!) to finish it by year’s end and so far, I think I’m on track. We will see. It would be awesome to have TWO side-by-side on that shelf!!
Well that is VERY exciting! Congratulations!
Thanks so much, Beth Ann. It’s really a dream-come-true! And I’m honored at being able to share it with my little corner of the world.
I am so excited to know a real live book author!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!! What an accomplishment! I hope this one will go far and the next ones are on their way in the near future.
Thanks very much, Tanya. I’m the one who’s blessed, having so many dear friends to share in my joy — and nudge me to keep at the writing!
Good Stuff! Of course my wife doesn’t need to see this because it would give her more ammo for me to get started on a book. I got that look the other day that spouses give to each that says ” if not now when”?
Sounds like you’ve got your marching orders, Duke! She makes a good point, “if not now when”?!
she needs no encouragement! In all honesty my friend I wouldn’t know how to start?
