I am an author

Who knew that I would be only 22 days from launching a new book.  I certainly didn't.  In fact, when folks use to tell me I needed to write one, I'd shrug and say, "I'm not feeling that."  A book was somewhere out there in the sweet by and by.  Not a part of my daily thinking or planning.   More to my sweet spot was E-writing.  I loved publishing online.  My ultimate dream was to be a paid contributor to a major magazine.   Like Iyanla and Dr. Phil, I wanted to have a Q & A column where people sent relationship questions and I provided my unique spin.  

Though that is still my intention, in the words of my coachee and motivational speaker, Diane Hamilton, "Man plans and God decides." Truly, His dream for me was BIGGER than what I envisioned.  People are surprised when I tell them that I wrote my book in 30 days--25 actually.  My business strategist, entrepreneur and all-around phenomenal woman, Katrina Harrell, said to me point blank, "You've got to write a book."  In that moment, I knew it was time.  And so I did.

In 22 days I will formally take my place among a distinguished group of amazing female authors, three of which were featured at the Literary Tea last Sunday.  I felt a new something as I listened to them.  I wasn't a reader, I was their sister author.  I felt that consciousness draw snuggly around my shoulders and radiate from my soul as I was introduced and asked to tell everyone about my new book.  I am an author.  As I wrote my information on the pieces of paper that folks sitting around me pushed my way, I knew it.  As I took pictures with sister friends whose view of me had expanded, I felt it.  My words have power.  My life has value.  I am a voice in this world.
