Day 2888 – Look What Came In The Mail Yesterday!

I submitted my book to Amazon on Tuesday, it was approved and I ordered a physical copy for myself. I paid the “get it to me as fast as humanly possible” fee, and dudes, it came yesterday! It is crazy to me that you can put a book on Amazon and have it the next day. I even had a little hiccup in my manuscript (put the wrong ISBN in the book) to correct. Now that I have two books to my name, I am even more adamant about encouraging people to write a book. I think that everyone has something to say, and it’s now so easy to share that with others. A big road block for some is that they think “oh, well, someone already wrote a book about that.” But here’s the thing, now one has written a book from YOUR perspective. That was the biggest encouragement I received when I attended a writing conference a few years ago. Sure, people have written about being a Christian business owner and road trip travel, but no one has talked about it from my perspective.

So go write your books my friends! Do you have an idea for a book? I’d love to know! Let me know in the comments!

And don’t forget to sign up for my contest! A $100 gas gift card is a pretty sweet start to saving for your road trip! The winner will be picked on Tuesday, June 13th!

Day 2880 – Coming VERY Soon!!!

I cannot believe I’m writing this, but my second book is coming very soon!!! I had originally hoped to have it published on my birthday (6/18), but it’s so much closer to being complete, that I think I’m going to bump that up to the last day of school (6/13)! That’s only two weeks from today! Stay tuned for more information about the book and a contest to win a $100 gas gift card!

And to my friends who have always wanted to write a book, just get started! The second one is much easier than the first! Ha ha, and I’m just a little addicted now. 😀

Day 2861 – Is Your Dream Taking A While? Take Heart

As I scrolled through my On This Day on Facebook this morning, I saw my blog post from this day last year. I was still cranking away on my first book. That sucker took FOREVER to write. Years, actually. It felt so good to finally finish and put that guy out into the world. I look back and think, “why did I wait so long?” I know part of the reason was the type of book I wrote was one that needed a long marination in my brain. I felt myself changed in the process. Now that it is published, and I’ve gone through the process, it it much easier to take the journey. I’m working on two books right now – planning a road trip on any budget, and a memoir on my alcoholism and sobriety (this is a little hint towards my big goals…) I am getting super close to the next step in my road trip book (proofreading) and it is just crazy how quickly this book came together. I think I started with a completely blank slate in January, and here I am only a few months later and getting close to publishing my second book. So friends, take heart if your journey is taking longer than you thought it would. It may be that growth is what’s needed now.

Day 2858 – The Importance Of Big Goals

Yesterday, I made a big goal for myself. I’m not ready to share what that is with you guys yet, but stay tuned. I can tell you this – I hope to have this goal met by June 18th, my 35th birthday. Stay tuned for more info as things move along!

Here’s something I’ve discovered about myself – I need big goals, I need deadlines, and I need to have something I care about deeply. By setting a date on the calendar, I worked backwards to figure out what I need to do, and when. It’s crazy how much of a jump start this gave me today. I’ve accomplished more in this particular area this morning than I have in a month.

What are your big goals? Are you afraid to set them? Let me know in the comments below.

Day 2852 – My Book Is A Success

When I wrote my book, I had one definition of what success would be – that if even only one person was helped, it was a success.

Last night, I happened to look at my books on Amazon. For some reason, I wasn’t notified that I got a review. My first review! Here was someone who had read the book, and was helped enough to write a review. I called Bret over to show him, I couldn’t even read it out loud because of my tears. I’m so glad I finally put my words into a cohesive book. It makes writing my next books that much easier.
