Mommy is an author

My three-year-old daughter loves books. She’s been learning about books at school and has come home saying, “this is the cover, this is the title page, this is the spine, we don’t break the spine.” Recently she said, “Who is the author? The author is the person who writes the book.” Well, this time mommy is the author. I told her that and she just looked at me with a curious expression. My print books arrived this week (yay!!), so when I show her the book now she says “that’s mommy’s book.” What an amazing feeling. And in about ten years, maybe she’ll be old enough to read it.

And yes, the print version is now available:

I blogged on my critique group sites this week. Read about the effect of real world events on my writing at the Maryland Dream Weavers, and read about the advantages of a small publisher at the Write Workshop.
