The symbolic burning letter "D" and the cover for The Dreamers...
That letter is just everywhere!
Hooray! The Dreamers is out! After hours of writing, hours of editing, and hours of revising, it has all payed off! The Dreamers began in November, and now, over 8 months later, it is complete! Now, finally, as a published author, I am unsure how to describe the feeling. It's sort of... unreal. It is amazing that now anybody in the entire world can read my book--read the words that I wrote, and (hopefully) enjoy them! Who knows... maybe years from now the day August 9th will go down in history as the day The Dreamers was published! I hope that you enjoy The Dreamers as much as I did! Any day now, I can go to a bookstore, and set up a book signing, or do stuff like that! It's a very rewarding feeling. As I have said before, being an author must be one of the most rewarding jobs out there, even if you don't earn much money--the feeling of knowing that someone out in the world has read your work is a very satisfying feeling.
Every member of my family has helped in some way to this book, (perhaps excluding 15-month-old sister) and so we made kind of a party out of publishing. As I am self-published, most everything I did was on computers. I didn't need to mail anything in, I just downloaded the file and followed the online instructions. This basically means I could publish by the push of a button! Pretty cool! We took a video of the final button-push. Here it is!
