Happy Wednesday! This Sherri Shackelford coming to you from the wilds of a release-of-a-debut-novel jungle. I've spent the month of June on blog tours, answering emails, and promoting my freshman novel, Winning the Widow's Heart. It's been a topsy-turvy ride, and I've enjoyed every minute.
I even hosted a book signing at a locally-owned bookstore - The Bookworm. (Yes, they still exist) My friends and family came out in force to support my 'dream come true' moment. Seeing my book on the shelf made the whole experience real.
Check out those gorgeous ladies! You'll see *lizzie starr, Cheryl St.John, Ann Stephens, and a host of best-sellers in the making.
The ladies from my local RWA group, Heartland Writers Group (along with friends from my ACFW group) graciously relinquished part of a beautiful Saturday afternoon to support me, and their presence meant everything. I've always said I never would have made it without the ladies from HWG, and that's not an exaggeration.
