A Touch of Farmhouse Charm – Book Release Day!

It was two summers ago when I first got the email from a wonderful publishing company asking if I would be interested in writing a book. I think I read and reread that email forty times just to make sure they didn’t accidentally send it to me by mistake. I’ve always been open to the possibility of taking my ideas beyond this little blog, but did I have what it takes to become an author? I had no idea.

Fast forward a few months to October, and I had successfully negotiated a contract with my publisher and signed on the dotted line. Still unsure of whether I was worthy of such an opportunity, I sat down with a pen and paper and started writing down ideas and making to-do list and marking important deadlines on my calendar. After five crazy months of house projects and kitchen renovations and late night writing sessions and thousands of photos, I turned in my manuscript and said a little prayer that it would all turn out the way I pictured in my head.

Today I am so proud to say that my first book, A Touch of Farmhouse Charm, is now officially released and available for purchase, and it turned out even better than I ever imagined in my wildest dreams. I poured my heart and soul into this 192-page book with 70 brand new home decorating projects, a room-by-room tour of our home, and the story of how we completely renovated this little 1940’s farmhouse. It feels pretty surreal that my book release day is finally here!

Thank you is not enough to show my gratitude for your support while writing this book! After fourteen months of hard work and determination, I get to end 2016 by adding “published author” to my title. Wow… I am almost speechless, guys! I’m sure 2017 will be another wild ride, but I cannot wait to see what the next chapter will be for Love Grows Wild.
