My first book in paperback was published

I was so excited to see the UPS truck arrive in my neighborhood this morning. I knew my first ever paperback book (not the one in the picture above) would be on that truck because I had received tracking information about it just moments before.

When he stopped at the neighbors, I wasn't surprised. I think they get something every single day. But when the truck drove past my house and didn't even slow down, I have to admit, I was a little sad.

But only for a minute because then the truck pulled up in front of my house!

The driver walked about with my package and I must have been grinning from side to side because he even got a grin on his face! (And this guy is a crabby patty who never he smiles EVER!)

I'm glad my joy could give him joy!

My granddaughter is home from school because she has strep throat so she wanted to open the box. I let her. But she was slow at it because I had warned her not to cut too deep because she might cut into a book. I was getting impatient. But then she said, "I think I got it."

Next thing she was tearing the box open and pulling out the packaging material.

Just to keep me centered and "because she can" she said, "It's not very big."

I laughed and said, "It's not supposed to be. It's a beginner guide for Senior Citizens, not a novel."

As I was taking the photo, my granddaughter's cat had to make her appearance and get in on the photo, too. I guess she was excited, as well!

The book is on Amazon, but my main purpose of getting the paperbacks was to use them as a giveaway product at the first live class.

In retrospect, I probably would have made it a bit longer and a bit more comprehensive. I also would have sprinkled it with more links to not only my website, but also to Wealthy Affiliate. I will likely be doing a rewrite of it in the next three months to add in a few more details and those links. Maybe even sooner than that. I will have to make the time because I don't want to delay on this.

But in the meantime, I am so excited! I just had to share! Now I am even more motivated to get my live classes completed so I can share even more of what I've learned and to direct more people to Wealthy Affiliate!

Best wishes,

Karin

I can definitely feel your enthusiasm, Karin! I was glad when I got my book series published in the same way a few years ago! Well done!

Jeff

I saw that when I checked out one of your websites. I am thinking I might have to get the series if it's still available. I love to read!

Thanks, Jeff!

The series is available on eBook too, Karin!

Jeff

I will be checking it out soon!

Karin 😎

Sounds good, Karin!

Jeff

Congrats, LOL if there is a box, there will be a cat photo bomb :=)

Yes for sure! Today, the other cat decided the box was for chewing up! Naughty rascals!

Thank you!

Karin

I have two: one is sweet, but she does ikes to chew on boxes as well. The other is like a Tasmanian devil, with a hint of sweetness when she feels like it. LOL. Always looking for trouble and getting into it... don't know what i would do with out them though :-)

I hear you. They are good companions.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Karin😊

Superb accomplishment! Congratulations on your book!

Thank you. It was a risk but I had over 2500 impressions on Facebook, so maybe it will pan out!

I am excited to do the updates and get finished with one I have been working on for a couple of years now!
