Beginning and Other Posts--Karen Gammons blog

Well, it is almost the end of the year. What a journey I have had! To think that in January my book was just in the editing stage and now I have books coming to me. Such an awesome experience.

If you looked at it just so, it would almost be like I was giving birth to a child. Months of it getting better and better with fine tuning. Being covered with a bright, beautiful cover. And then, at the end of nine months, out pops a book, with you written all over it. It was exactly what you had hoped for. You take it and show it off to everyone who will look. Some will OOO and Ahhh over your child. While others will simply look and then keep on walking. But what do they know. How could they possibly know all the love and work you have put into the beautiful words within. The labor it took to get it here.

My only hope is that people will stop, look and appreciate what I have accomplished. Because, not everyone can write a book.

It is Fantasy. I'm a nut for elves, fairies, dragons and war.

Well said, Karen. Thank you for friending me. The birth of a book is indeed a special occasion. I've been fortunate to be in that position and there are few experiences that are as fulfilling in life...except maybe the birth of my kids.

Good luck. What genre is your book?
