Today, my first book became available on Kindle. It will arrive in paperback and on the rest of the eReader formats soon, but today was the first time that someone could actually buy the book and take it with them.
I haven't been able to get up from my desk today because of all of the well wishes, FaceBook posts, tweets and the rest of your outpouring of love and support. I keep saying, "thank you" but those words don't feel like they are enough. This is one of the most wonderful days of my life and it's completely due to all of you. I'm beyond touched.
One of you sat in your car this morning and began to read on your phone, a book on a phone - in a car. So excited to begin reading my book that you sat in a cold car and read on a tiny screen. There are no words to express how that made me feel. No words.
It's a funny line to walk when you write a book. I want you all to like it, but more importantly I want you to feel well served by it. I hope that after you finish reading that the experience feels worth your personal investment and kind support. The words in that book are my only chance to properly say thank you for the time you spend on this blog.
