Snack Girl became a published author today and a new dog owner last year.
Yes, I am using my dog to sell my book. It has occurred to me that the dog might sell dogs as well. He is a “rescue” so check out your local pet shelter for another adorable specimen.
Which am I more proud of? The dog or the book? Milo is pretty great but he is not the culmination of 5 years of hard work so I am going to choose my book.
It has been a dream to become an author. I loved writing the book, my agent, my editor, my publisher, but most of all – I dream that many will read it and get something useful or potentially life-changing out of it.
I want to inspire, encourage, and support those of you who are trying to get healthy. I want to make you laugh so it doesn’t feel so heavy.
Today begins my new life as an author and I hope it goes so well that I get the honor of writing another book. I believe that this is what happens to writers after their first book. They get HOOKED on writing books.
I will not be doing a traditional book tour (more to come on that) but I will be hosting an event April 27th in my hometown of Amherst, Massachusetts. I know many of you live way too far away to attend – but I thought I would invite you anyway. The event is between 3-4:30 PM at the Munson Memorial Library at 1046 South East St. and is a benefit for Amherst libraries – here is the Facebook invite. Please let us know if you can make it.
If you have any questions or comments about the book, please comment below. Today will be a little crazy but I will do my best to answer them. The book is now on sale at bookstores and online in the United States and Canada.
Thank you dear readers for your support of Snack Girl. I promise to continue to come up with as many ideas, tips, recipes, and stories to help you with your healthy eating challenges.
