A Signing

So, this past weekend I had my very first book signing for LIKE A DREAM at Barnes and Noble. I can’t express the amount of love I received from family, friends, and even strangers. Leading up to the day I was anxious because I didn’t know how I would be perceived.

Public speaking has never been my strong suit and I’m wondering what exactly have I gotten myself into. 🙂 But once I walked up to the podium I felt liberated, don’t get me wrong I was as nervous as can be, however, the greatest joy was talking about something that I created. When the audience started to ask me questions, the nervousness and anxiety I felt was all worth it. As I spoke, I knew I was right where I belonged and I’m excited to see what the future holds.


Seeing my novel next to the other great authors on this table is life changing. Who knew? I sure didn’t. Being that my novel is a trilogy, I can’t help but feel gitty as I continue to promote Like a Dream and watch the world fall in love with my characters.

I have another signing coming up next month and now that I’ve gotten my feet wet, I can’t wait to meet new people and talk about something I’m so proud of.
