Life has been extremely busy since the transition to Tennessee. The trip began with an offer to do in house work for a publishing firm here in Nashville. As a result of my exciting new position with the firm, my own projects, domains, online writing etc., simply fell to the wayside.
Through this journey, I was flattered to have played a role in doing work for Jeff Foxworthy. He is a humble, talented, and humorous soul.
For this particular project we turned his illustrations into greeting cards. We also named card lines, added taglines when necessary, colored the illustrations, designed slideshows and presentations for major retailers etc. It was a wonderful experience!
The good news is; these projects are complete and I am back on the grid and available to write more for my readers!
I don’t usually write personal blog entries on here, however, today is different. The meaning behind this quote and photo deserve an explanation. This photo was taken in route to meet the president of a publishing company in Nashville a few weeks ago. I was there in pursuit of my dream. I was in the midst of becoming an official author.
It was all just a simple twist of fate that I met this man, especially the way we met. We met on eBay, when he asked a question on an item I had listed. As we wrote back and forth we decided it would be worth both of our while to meet, and we did. It was an answer to my prayers, and a dream come true.
This dream of mine is becoming more real every day. My work will soon be in s15,000 stores across the country. It will be on shelves, which is amazing. Most know that it is hard to get shelf space in this country nearly 1600 books published daily by various authors. So to me just as any other author, this is a huge deal.
I am excited, I am passionate, and I have a zillion things to write. I can’t wait to see what the future holds, as I have more hope now than ever before. My happiness tank at this point, is pretty full. Now if I could land a job with the local newspaper, I would be in heaven.
