My Dear Readers,
It’s been raining all day yesterday. But I don’t care. I had a very good day.
So, for those of you who read or at least started to read my book, Book 1: Forbidden Love(paperback edition click the link), you will know who I put in my Acknowledgment.
Yesterday, I spoke to the woman who suggested that I start writing when I was 13 years old (The same age as Princess Amy). Her name is Irina Danilchenko. You should probably thank her what came out of her suggestion.
I told her that my book was published two months ago on Amazon. You can’t imagine how much happiness there was, squealing, congratulations and she wanted a signed book. Of course, I told her that I would send her a signed copy. After which she said she would buy it for her daughter too.
We talked for almost two hours. I miss her. She lives in Athens, Georgia. I don’t get to see her because she’s a doctor. But we talk on the phone. I can’t believe it, this lady is so awesome and inspiring to me. She achieved her dream and I achieved mine.
As soon as I can, I’ll send her one of the paperback copies I have at home. I still have eight copies. I have to go out and sell. I’m so happy!!! I have been trying to call her and tell her and now that I did, I feel really happy. I remember 20 years ago when I was just starting to write I would always call her and bounce my ideas off her. She didn’t mind it. We talked about everything. She was my sounding board and still even now I love calling her to talk about my ideas though she is busier now but she always found time for me.
Now, she will buy my book. She promised a review and pictures so, I will share them with you. I am infinitely grateful for her because she believed in my dream as much as me.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
