I’m so thrilled about the gift I gave my mom today and I just had to share. I sent her a signed copy of Christy Reece’s debut novel, Rescue Me. I was so proud to send her this book, not only because my mom is an avid romance reader and I know she’ll love Christy’s book, but because this is my friend’s first published novel and I was MORE than excited to share this wonderful moment with my mother.
I started thinking today how lucky I am. I met so many of Southern Magic’s published authors when they were exactly where I’m at in the writing process, I was fortunate enough to witness their CALL , and now I get to share in their triumphs and sometimes their anxiety as they continue on with incredible writing careers. Sharing in these stepping stones, no matter how small or large … it’s just an awesome feeling and experience. I’m so thankful to be a part of such a great group. Makes me want to twirl around on a mountain top and sing The Sound of Music at the top of my lungs. Badly, of course, because I can't hold a tune.
I know … I’m just being a big sentimental mound of mush today.
I love you guys! Have a wonderful Mother's Day, everyone! :)
