It’s been really interesting to see the reactions of friends and family when I tell them I’ve written a book. Everyone has been excited and really supportive, which I am so thankful for. Some of the most common responses have been “I didn’t know you were a writer!” (I didn’t really know that either, until I started writing about a year ago) and “I’ve always wanted to write a book!” (So did I, so I finally did it – you can too!) and the hardest for me to answer, “What’s it about?”.
I have a really hard time describing my book to others. I do realize that I better master that aspect real soon because if an agent or publisher wants to know about my book I should have a pretty good response handy. So I’m working on that. Obviously I don’t want to reveal too much here, but to answer that last question a little: I will say that my book is geared toward women’s fiction. It has hilarious friendships, a great romance, a lot of drama, and of course, scrapbooking. Are you surprised? If you know me well, you shouldn’t be – how could I not add scrapbooking as a part of the main character’s life? It’s a huge part of mine, and it’s also a big part of nearly one in four other women’s lives too. I think it deserves a little attention, don’t you?
