My first eBook is finally here.
I can’t believe this day has come! Here we are, the publishing of my first book. I am thrilled, terrified, optimistic and pessimistic at the same time. But, I guess that’s normal when you put something you love out into the world for the first time, right?
I want to thank the lovely people I roped into being my editors for taking the time to give me some wonderful, honest, helpful feedback and being my beta readers. (Not to mention, my cheerleaders when I needed you most!)
It might seem silly to some to get so excited over a little, self-published project like this. The fact is, projects mean different things to different people, and this represents something much bigger than its word count to me.
It has been a long time coming. Since I was about eight, in fact.
I’ve been in love with writing my whole life, dreaming of the day I could publish my own novels. I dreamt of fantasy stories, epic tales akin to The Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials and more.
Draft after draft for horrors, thrillers, fantasies, romances, comedies and children’s stories have been hurriedly penned and mostly lost over the years.
I even dabbled in fan-fiction, as all teen girls probably do at some point or another. (But we won’t go there…)
The closest I came to following through with these ideas was a series of children’s books I still hope to release one day, which is very dear to my heart. They were thought up on a sunny day in Wales a decade and a half ago, wandering through the woods talking with my Mother, my greatest cheerleader, about my dreams for the future.
But here we are. If you’d told me then that I’d release a book, I’d have said; ‘well yeah, of course I will.’
If you’d told me it would be a small, nonfiction eBook about frugal living; containing economic recipes, lifestyle budgeting advice and tips to save money, well…
I’m pretty sure I’d have laughed myself sick.
It’s funny how we grow, isn’t it?
The truth is I couldn’t be happier for my first book to be Frugal Living for Lazy People.
This book was a joy to write. Since starting my blog I’ve discovered a passion for helping people I never knew I had. Sharing any and all tips and tricks for making people’s lives easier, making them happy, is a worthy cause and you’ll never convince me otherwise.
Writing my blog and Frugal Living has sparked my love of writing anew, opening trains of thought and options for future ideas I never would have considered.
So here we are. It’s just a beginning, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t the beginning of something big.
Frugal Living for Lazy People.
