My principal saw me during lunch and casually mentioned that she wanted me to sign her copy.
I was visibly surprised. I hadn’t seen it yet.
I mean, of course I’ve read it. I’ve read it many times. I’ve read the first draft, the revisions, and the edits back and forth but I have not read it this way.
Holding my book in my hands is just different than scrolling through my phone or staring at a computer screen.
I was nervous when I signed this first copy. In fact, I almost wrote 2017 instead of 2018. I think I was shaking a bit because I really didn’t want to mess up my principal’s copy.
Everyone has been so supportive. I really appreciate it. I want this book to help kids, families and educators.
This is a surreal feeling for me. There were times that I doubted today. I’m excited and so grateful for this opportunity that GHF Press and Sarah Wilson have given me!
If you read the book, tell me what you think!
