Major excitement here!

I am super excited right now. Look what came in the mail today:

It's a book. My book. The novel that I wrote during NaNoWriMo last November. It's my free proof copy from Createspace. And the picture of the orange flower on the front? I took it. :)

The story is pitiful and the writing almost cringe-worthy in certain places (despite-or maybe because of-the fact that I about a week). But who cares? :)

The only problems are with some of my formatting. The page numbers at the bottom aren't centered. Some of my flourishes overlap words. And some of my chapters don't start on new pages. They just continue after a block of space where the last one finished. Oops.

I wonder if authors who have written dozens and dozens of books still get this feeling when they receive a copy of their latest book. :) I can't wait to write another "novel" this November, and I hope they offer this freebie again!

And in other exciting news...I may possibly be getting a dress form! Or at least the frame of a really nice one that only needs to be repadded and covered...

Until next time,


  1. Awesome Kristin!!!! The book sound awesome! The cover looks great!

  2. Honestly... thats amazing. I'm so happy for you. A few mishaps here and there... psh, oh well. I red the "back" and it looks interesting. If there was someway I could read it, oh trust me I would. I'm so happy for you!!!

    With Love and Blessings,
