Welcome to a new WORLD


Today I want to share with you the fact that I am now living in a whole new world. I am not an unpublished novelist anymore. I no longer have to say, when my book comes out. I can look my family in the eye and say, all the times I neglected you and the house was absolutely worth it. I will stroll a little taller, feel a little giddier as I walk into my place of work and announce I have a book available for people to consume. There are some fans there as well.

It's a whole new world today. Though the air won't smell any differently, the ground won't REALLY move under my feet, I feel different.

Maybe it's pride? Maybe it's relief. But whatever, it feels good.

You can make your purchase of Avenging Angel, A Shannon Wallace Mystery at Red Rose Publishing.
and I hope you will make it something that you do JUST FOR YOU. It is meant to entertain and make you laugh.

Please enjoy this book as much as I did writing it for you! And drop by my website KIM SMITH SITE and see what else I have up my writer sleeve! *oh! a MURDER MYSTERY E-DINNER!!! that sounds lovely!*

Also don't forget about the radio show tonight! I will be the guest of honor! Radio show

Finally, thank you for being my friend!

Oh thank thank thank you all. I just got back from the doctor's office and you might know, after losing my blood to them, I have lost my heart to you all. My inbox is swelling! I am so thrilled to be the focus of so many people's attention!

I've been telling everyone I know, Kim. Including my son & all his buddies at the base in Kandahar. Cory's passing on your book's information. He says they're always looking for good books to read.

A big congratulations!!! I'm so happy for you.

Sam Harper said...

Hey Kim,

Congrats, lady. Good things always happen to non-quitters and that describes you to a "T."

Can't wait to read about Shannon. ;)

Aw. Geez Joylene I hadn't even thought about our boys overseas! What a fabulous gift to know that they are enjoying things like our books! I am truly blessed to have them looking out for my country and my book! Please extend my heartfelt thank you to your son, and his friends. Maybe my book will give them a few hours of funny reading to entertain them!
