As my seventh book (the 4th in The Wonky Witch series) is about to hit the shelves on October 24th, I am taking a moment today to reflect.
I love where my books are going. I love working with my new illustrator. I love meeting new fans and getting kids excited about reading and writing. I love it all.
So how can I do more? How can I get the word out there even more? What more can I do? I hope that my readers are looking at the Facebook pages, checking out my blog, and seeing all my Instagram posts. I do it all for you!
Publishing this book has meant so much to me, and I have so many other ideas that I have started that are just sitting in my documents file, waiting to be written. And today, all of a sudden, I am feeling that desire to plunge ahead and write...write...write! I want to bring those characters to life! As writers, we love breathing life into our characters. We love to explore their personalities, their capabilities. They are a part of us.
So maybe it's not really my characters that want to tell their story. Maybe it's my story that needs to be told. After all, they are part of my heart. My books are me.
