As I’ve already mentioned in previous blog posts, I have dreamed of becoming an author for pretty much my entire life, even if it was a long shot. It was the way the stories would unfold in my head, and the notebooks I would write in that made me believe I could do it and I could succeed. But as many of us know, as we get older the negativity can get in and you start to doubt yourself. It isn’t that you don’t believe in yourself anymore, you just grow up and realize how hard it is to make that dream become reality and let’s be honest, you have to live in the real world which doesn’t always embrace dreams.
With this in mind, I am a bit trepidatious about my first “Live Author Event” this Saturday with Aaron’s Books. I mean yes, I have waited for this moment for a lifetime, but now that it’s here, I want to make it the best event possible and that’s a little scary. Angie and I have poured hours upon hours into making SOAR the finished product it is today and we want to do it justice. We want to provide the virtual audience with a great experience and help them fall in love with Ramone the way we have.
It’s been an amazing journey creating the story of SOAR and watching a few lines of text turn into an entire book. I have loved every minute of this experience and I want to project that to our virtual audience. It is important to me that people realize that while I am riding a high because the book has been received with such positivity and love, I am still conquering my own fears just like Ramone. I hope you can join me for my first “Live Author Event” and help me along this next step in the journey.
