I have officially arrived! Ever since I could hold a stapler and fold paper in half I have wanted to write books. Last night I finally set up the pre-order for my first book ever to be published. This morning it went live, and now twelve hours later I already have 10 pre-orders!! I couldn't even speak in full sentences this morning when I searched for the book in Amazon and there it was. To top off the most perfect day ever, my parents and my husband teamed up to surprise me with a happy writer-graduates-to-published-author gift, my first Mac!!

Seriously, I don't know how this day could get any better. And you know what my "business plan" was before I found kboards? Here it is: 2015 - Write two (standalone) novels. 2016 - Edit two novels and begin contacting agents. 2017 - Hopefully get accepted by an agent and dare I hope for a publisher too? 2018 - Be published. Finally. So after a few months of lurking around here I flipped the board on myself and started a new plan. Write fast, write a lot, write a series. And look! It's working! Everyone here has been so amazing and giving with their own insights and experience, so thank you so much for both the information and the inspiration. I hope someday soon that I can give a little back in return. Thank you!

Thanks to Heather Hamilton-Senter for the cover art, thanks to Adam Poe and Sheila of Frostbite for the beta read and the formatting services, and thanks to Laura Kingsley for the editing. You guys are wonderful!
