HERE IT IS!

Really and Truly!

I have a cover!

    • Thanks for buying it. If you like it, I would really appreciate a kind review on Amazon. I’m terrified of those mean reviewers.

  2. Wow! A sincere congratulations! Is it for sale at the Canadian Amazon?

  3. Congratulations

    Congratulations!! How wonderful for you.

  11. Nancy, this is out-of-the-ballpark awesome! I know you’ve got a great tale, just not how it ends. Guess I’ll have to buy the book :) The cover is spot on. I’m so excited for you. Tell more! OK, so maybe it’s not the best day of your life but it’s one reverberatingly great Red Letter Day. Congrats!

    • Thanks Toni! And thanks for the read last year – it helped me push forward.

  12. Just purchased on Amazon and its now on my agenda. Congratulations!

  13. This is exciting stuff, and I agree, the cover is really lovely and fun.

  14. This is fabulous! Huge congrats. On my reading list for the next group of books I order.

    • Just bought the Kindle version…looking forward to reading it. Perfect timing, since I just finished a book.

    • Thanks! Hope you like it! As exhilarating as it is to finally have my book out there, it is also very scary to have my book out there. Judgment awaits…

  15. Reading on the Kindle…loving the book and marveling that this is your first. Very well written. And my most favorite part so far? The dog’s name is Carlos!! Such a ridiculous name and of course, our dog’s name also. Smile. (And our dog was named by a 16 yr old girl…so very appropriate.)

    • How sweet that you have a Carlos!!!

  16. Congratulations! Love the cover and photo. Hope it becomes a best seller for you!

    • Thanks. I secretly hope it will be a big success… but I am happy enough just to hold it in my hands.

  17. Congratulations , oh, and the investment in your portrait on the back was money well spent, and you made a photographer happy, bonus
    :)

    • Thanks. I am very happy with the portrait. I had only two goals – to look as young as possible and to have my hair come out okay.

  18. Nancy, you’re allowed TWO best days. I’ll bet the second one is all the better because the first one is in place. Congratulations on both!

    • Three. I have to add my wedding day. I have to.

  19. Wonderful! Congratulations to you :)
    MJ

  20. Between the book description and the first few pages (Look Inside), I’m hooked. Just one-clicked and looking forward to a great read. Congratulations! A significant accomplishment.

  21. Congratulations! Well worth the hard work. I’ll put it on my new Kindle!

    • I may just have to break down and get a Kindle myself, so I can see it there too! But it is sure wonderful to hold that book in my hands.

  22. CONGRATULATIONS! I can’t wait to read it. Just ordered it for my Kindle. I always knew you were a great writer. :)

    • Thanks Dor. I’d love to hear your feedback.

  23. Wonderful, Nancy. Been following you for several months now, and always enjoy your posts. The book must be fabulous. Congratulations!

    • Thank you.. and thanks for following my blog too.

  24. Damn good for you, Nancy. Congratulations!

    I just ordered the Kindle version!

    • Thank you! I am on my way to a million reads! I just need 999,987 more!

      • You’ll get there.

  25. Congratulations! I just popped over and bought the Kindle version – looking forward to reading it!

    • Thanks! I was hoping I would hear from you… how did you get the image of your books to show up on your homepage?

      • Just go into Widgets (available under Appearance) and drag an Image box over to your sidebar. Give it a title, and in the Image URL box, paste this: http://notquiteold.files.wordpress.com/2014/08/justwhatialwayswanted2500x1563-1.jpg (it’s the link to your book cover image from this post).

        If you want the image to have a frame around it the way mine does, you need to add a caption. If you don’t want a visible text caption below your image, you can enter a period in the Caption box and centre it. The dot will still be visible centred under your image, but it’s not too bothersome. I prefer to put in some useful text like, “Click image to view on Amazon.”

        Then you can fill in the Link URL box with the link to your Amazon book page so people can click directly there from your blog.

        The sidebar automatically reduces the size of your image to fit, so if it doesn’t look good, you can tweak it to the correct size yourself and upload it again.

        Hope this helps!

        • Thanks! You probably saved me a lot of time and swearing!

        • It worked! I didn’t do anything fancy, but I’ve got an image!

  26. Wonderful! Congratulations! I just sent He-Who to grab the Kindle so we can buy it.

    • Thanks!

    • Michelle, Now you have yet another reason to come to CT ~ to meet Nancy and get her autograph. We’ll have a pizza at Marzano’s and talk books. :) Toni

  27. Applause and cheers! Looks great. YEA!

  28. Congratulations. Well done.
