If you are reading this book–and you are not my mother or a close friend–YOU are the silver lining today!

It means that I have finally hit this day: April is now up as a pre-order on Amazon—both as an e-book and a print option.  I have a few final tweaks to do tomorrow, and then it will truly be available. 

This process of self-publishing has required a lot of learning on my part.  My hat is off to all those professionals who work in things like book formatting, editing, book cover design, author photos, website creation, Facebook group setup, key word searches, category decision makers and marketing. 

I used to just read a book.  Now, I’m hyper aware of all the little things that go into a good experience.  I hope that my silver lining becomes a silver lining for many.
