Bonjour everyone! I have some really exciting news today. The cover for my first novel, Sleeping with Paris, has arrived! The very talented Laura Morrigan created this gorgeous cover for me, and I absolutely adore it.
So, without further ado . . . Voilà!
But it's even more than that. Anyone who has ever had a dream and has worked hard to make it happen understands what I'm feeling right now. It's the point where all of that hard work is about to come full circle, and you are right on the verge of seeing your dreams become a reality. (And, let's be honest, with writing, sometimes getting that circle to swing back around in your direction can take a very long time!)
All of those late nights, early mornings and weekends spent writing and finally a book is going to be published. It's a wonderful, exhilarating feeling, and for any of you who are working toward a dream, whether it is to publish your first book or to open your own business or to create a lifestyle where you spend your days doing what you love, I encourage you to keep going! No matter what, don't give up. Don't let the naysayers get to you. Someone will always be there to tell you that what you're doing is silly, impractical, outrageous even. But are they running the show? Of course not. They're just a roadblock to your show . . . and that's only if you let them be.
So, put in the work and make your dream happen. You only get one shot at this life thing, so there are really no excuses.
Okay, enough with the cheesy motivating for today:) Don't worry though, I'm sure to have an even cheesier post when the book is actually released this fall!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out Sleeping with Paris' new do!
