The First Email

Updated: Dec 17, 2020

I remember two emails the day my book was published. The first one from my publisher said, “There is a beautiful book on my desk.” I didn’t wait to open the second one. I grabbed by jacket and ran out the door with my husband and dog on my heels. I thought the sky looked a bit ominous as I shivered to zip up my jacket. Were the clouds in the shape of a Cheshire cat with an odd wide puffy teeth grin? I shook my head and raced down the dock and up the ramp. My book was finally a real book. Today, I would hand it to my mom. UNIQUELY STELLA is about and for my mom. I couldn’t wait to watch her expression when I put it into her hands for the first time.

Wow, this is powerful. The emotion you must have felt when you realized, my book is real! must have been extraordinary.
