My First Book Has Been Published! Thanks Active Rain!

New Book

After months of working diligently to publish my first book, it has finally happened! I want to say a big "THANK YOU" to my friends here on Active Rain! Because of my blogging here, I had the courage to finally write my book and to put it out there. You all have encouraged me, been there alongside me and have cheered me on.


I had a dream to publish a book for some time. Blogging and interacting with fellow bloggers helped me to step out in faith to fulfill a dream. Seeing the book live on Amazon tonight almost has me in tears.


And just like blogging, we put ourselves out there each time we post. Your heart and soul are shared with those who read our words. What we say here in the Rain is important.


I would be honored for you to take a look at my author page and take a peek at the book. Super excited! Extremely nervous! Riding on a cloud!


Hugs to you all!

Paula McDonald - Congratulations on becoming an author.  I see that you are already making sales just two days after publication.

You should seriously consider selling your book in several ebook formats as well as many people prefer ebook format over paperback.
