Congrats! That's quite an accomplishment.
That is so cool. Congratulations!
Congratulations and best of luck with it!
Congrats! That's an awesome accomplishment. Best of luck with it!
Thanks so much!
Boy I'm humbled by all the kind words and well-wishes. I've been on this board for over ten years and while I post infrequently and sometimes too snarkily for some posters tastes, I've always considered it a caring, kind on-line community/family who have always made me feel welcome. So, of course it was natural that I wanted to share my good news with you all. I'm glad I did.
I'm resurrecting this thread to say I got it today from Amazon and read the first chapter. Enjoying it - your family sounds like a hoot.
Congratulations! You have a natural writing style and a great sense of humor and it comes across in your writing.
Thank you so much for sharing your book with us. I'd def. add it to my wishlist.
P.S. Love the bit about your family as well.
Max (er Jake), Congratulations on a really easy read & very entertaining book (1st couple of pages anyway). I was hooked immediately.
I didn't see this thread back in May, but I wanted to say Congrats!!! I hope it becomes a bestseller.
Adding my congrats on the book, Max, and on being an accomplished author! I love what Ive read so far. I know you must be extremely excited!
Wishing you the best and hope your book becomes a best-seller!
(just adding that I'm afraid I didn't see this thread until now, either. I'm so glad it was bumped.)
Thanks for resurrecting this thread, just ordered a copy. It looks interesting - congrats!!
Whee, my copy arrived two days ago! Looking forward to digging in. Loving the chapter titles. A sampling: "Scooby Doo and the Blessed Virgin, Too!" "Smells like Holy Spirit" "Celibacy in the City" "Prayer in 140 Characters or Fewer."
I am so getting this for my sister!
I wrote a novel too, though I'm still in the process of trying to find a publisher (or rather my agent is!). My novel falls into the Young Adult category so it tends to be a bit harder to really sell someone on the concept...but my fingers are crossed. It took me two years as well but once you finish writing, it's so worth it. But to be published? I can't even imagine how amazing you must feel! It's my dream and ultimate goal in life to have my novel published. So from one writer to another congratulations! I know what it's like putting in the countless hours of planning, outlining, drafting, writing, revising, reading, revising and re-reading...it's endless! But to be honest, there's nothing about it that I didn't enjoy...well, the waiting process sucks but I loved everything about the writing.
I'm very happy for you and, again, congratulations!
Gosh, I've been off the board for a while due to Moving, etc. But thanks so much for the kind words and support with regards to my book milanessa and lulu.
Stick with it! Congrats on finishing your book, that's a monumental task! Getting published is so right place/right time (at least for me it was), and it can be easy to get discouraged, so just keep plugging away.
Thanks for the kind words and congratulations!
Thanks for the support!
Thanks, never thought I'd be a published author, 11 years ago when I chose my username on the old FSW.
Thank you, I'll even settle for a medium seller...
Bumping to tell you I just finished the book and loved it.
A little late but congratulations and best of luck!
I finished reading your book and really enjoyed it I laughed a lot, and learned a lot, too Congratulations!
P.S. I'm passing it along to my pastor brother. He's going to love it!
Congratulations on publishing a book. It's a great achievement.
Congrats! I read the preview and bought the e-version. I didn't know you contribute also to The Busted Halo. I listen to that very occasionally (can't stand the host's cackling). Anyway, congratulations!
awww shucks! Thanks so much for the support!
