When the intangible becomes real

First there’s a whisper, next the words on paper and then the object begins to take shape … It becomes a physical book!

I couldn’t have done it without support.

This post is about everyone who helped make my intangible real – everyone who supported me.

After years and multiple revisions  my novel is going to print Monday with a “real cover”, and a “real” set of acknowledgements-

Heart Bones Front Heart Bones Acknowledgement
I can’t thank everyone involved enough.

All I can say is:

Our writer’s dreams become reality only with the support of other writers.

So …

    I’m so honored to have been a part of your journey Audrey. You deserve this success. I can’t wait to buy my copy!

      Joe… This is the global non-Nortth American version. Please wait for the US version by a US publisher. I’d like that to be the carrot dangling in front of my nose… so I’m motivated to keep going.

  3. I’m so excited for you! As Joe said, you deserve your success. You’ve done a fabulous job.

    You’re definitely one of my inspirations. You’re not only writing wonderful novels, you’re always helping the rest of us. I was honored to be asked to read a review copy and leave a review on Goodreads. What a pleasure it was to read this work!

    Wow, can’t read the small print, but the cover looks well done! Thanks so much for mentioning me, I was more than glad to read and share my thoughts with you. I’m so happy it was helpful. Sending you hugs and wishing you every success. The book deserves it.

  5. Wow, I’m looking forward to read your book, Audrey. Hard-work does pay off. Let me know what I can do to help with the promotion.

  6. Audrey, this is an awesome endeavor. I am so inspired that you managed to write this beautiful book, while holding down a demanding job, taking care of your family, traveling, doing volunteer work and everything else. You, my friend, are a great example of what someone can do when they are passionate about life. I am enjoying Heart Bones so much and can’t wait to post my review on Amazon. And thank you for the shout-out, honored to be in such company!
