I just got an early copy of my book!!

WOO-HOO! The world's greatest UPS man just delivered one single early copy of my book!!! If you have a low tolerance for corniness, stop reading now. If you're still with me, don't say I didn't warn you.

Okay, here goes ... I now know what it's like to hold your dream in your hands.

Thanks for indulging me. Have a great (safe) 4th of July!

Congrats Ellen! I can't wait to get my hands on my very own copy! And it's not corny to "hold your dream in your hands." Enjoy it!

Aw, Ellen...that's so terrific.

Funny. I once held my dream in my hand, too, but it wasn't a book...ha ha...not even close!

(and it also turned into a nightmare but that's another story. Ha!)

Enjoy. We are all every bit as excited as you and can't wait to hold your dream in our own sweaty little palms.

Now. Where's the freaking picture of you holding the book? Or Max, Ethan and Emma holding the book?


Ellen said...

Thank you, Don!!! I appreciate that.

Robin ... hahaha! I'm not saying this has anything to do with your comment (ahem), but your IP address is showing up on my sitemeter as "Creamery, PA." You can't make this stuff up.

Such an absolute thrill, Ellen!!! Wish I could see it. You just have lost your breath when you opened the package.

It is a wonderful thing to hold your dream in your hands -- don't let it go!!
Did you cry? I did!!!

I misted up just imagining you holding it. So great!

P.S. Can't wait to read it!

Ellen said...

Myf, yes! It was almost hard to believe I was finally actually holding it.
Bonnie... I'm STILL crying!
Kat, thanks! I'm so thrilled for YOU!
Thank you, Tish!! So sweet of you!

What did the UPS guy do when you jumped all over him?

Congratulations, Ellen. I'm very happy for you.
