As if the Planets Were Aligned

It seems like the planets aligned as I began sharing my manuscript of Feeling Loved: A Ted E. Bear Story.  I shared it with a few good friends and magically opportunities started to appear.Image

First, my best friend from college days informed me she was volunteering at her local elementary school that Friday and would I “mind” if she read it to the kids?  Mind?  Heck no.  Being a school, it required the official teacher okay, so she dropped her an email, not mentioning the title of the book, but asked if she could read a storybook about love.  The teacher wrote back to say Friday was a Teddy Bear themed day. WOW.  Are you kidding me?  How perfect.  Chills.

When the teacher saw the book she commented that it had a lot of words (many the pictures are still in process) and she was concerned whether or not it would keep the kid’s attention.  Well, from start to finish they were glued to the story!  After, my girlfriend asked if any of them wanted to share how they felt loved, and ALL of them raised their hands…they shared, “I feel loved when Mommy drives me to school,” “I feel loved when my uncle let’s me climb all over him when we are playing” … and much more.  My heart sings!

I may be onto something here…it’s like the world opening up and welcomed my new baby, my first children’s book.  This week I sign a contract with a publishing company and off I go…I’m hoping to have print copies by Valentines Day 2013, with a sneak peek version from an on demand co…keep watching.
