Proud Daughter

Happy Mother’s Day!

I’ve said it before, and I’ll keep saying it until I die… I’m so proud of my mom! This time it’s because she did something even she wasn’t sure she’d do.

She wrote a book!

All. By. Herself.

What started as an idea for a chapter book – she volunteers in the second grade at the same elementary school where she went and I went – morphed into so much more! It developed over two years and many, many revisions, and I love it!

Of course, there were times when she looked at me and wondered if it was worth it. She asked if it was any good. She cursed – really, my mom swears – at the commas and dialog and point of view.

But it all came together into one hundred, thirty pages of cuteness and goodness, and in most parts, it sounds just like my mom! I can hear her voice in the different characters reflecting her different moods, and I absolutely love that my mom stuck with it and finished a book.

We published it through my company, and it’s available as a paperback through Amazon for $6.99. The age levels she’s targeting are 8-12 year-olds, but I heard the husband of one of her friends is reading it too!

So I wanted to take the time on Mother’s Day to make a post from one proud daughter!
