My First Time!


First times can be so many things: scary, exciting, frustrating, amazing, disappointing. Always though they are memorable. With the publication of my first book - Murder Makes Mischief - I'm experiencing lots of firsts.

Seeing my little puzzle mystery in book form, now that was a thrill. No longer is it a stack of computer printed pages. Gone forever are the original handwritten pages.

The first time I saw the cover picture was another WOW. It had captured the elements of the story as I had hoped. It was in fact exactly what I had pictured in my mind only better.

Seeing my book available at Amazon.com and various other book sites made the whole experience real for the first time.

None of that though compared to the best part: hearing the reactions from my first readers! I was especially pleased to hear that I'd managed to keep them guessing to the end!
And now I'm doing my first blog. What next?!

Welcome Wendy:

I can soo identify with you about the first book. It's like holding a newborn baby. Some books are a long, painful labour; others are short and sweet.

Welcome to the Blog World...or would that be Blorld? lol

Have fun and post often.
