First Customers!


Well, I've officially sold my first book to a sweet cousin who lives in California. She paid by paypal using my email address from my post yesterday. Ten dollars for the book and two dollars for domestic postage or four dollars for international postage. A new blogging friend Kavita from India is ordering a book also, so I'm on my way to being an international publishing author!


Here's a photo of my first eight copies-octuplets. The first wrapped book to go in the mail tomorrow. HURRAH! Can you tell I'm excited. This is Volume One with at least one more volume in process already. Other ideas for different books are floating around in my head. I'm a mother again of a brand new baby book!

I have a feeling that you are not going to be a member in good standing of the "Stop at Two" movement. I'm sure you'll deliver lots and lots of "baby books"...

I'm so dang proud of you!! (remember to save me my copy... I'll get it in Oregon.) Or on the way to Oregon.
