Sherry publishes her first book on Amazon!

Today's a big day for me! My first book has been published! "I Am Going Camping with Mom'' is finally available on Amazon as a KDP ebook and paperback! This book took 15 minutes to write, 4 months to illustrate and 3 days to finalize formatting for Amazon. I have learned a lot and am beyond excited to finally have a book published!

Hardwork and determination and help made it happen!

None of this would be possible without the contributions of my family, my editor, and the new found social media community, that lead the way with advice and support. I am also grateful to everyone who has volunteered to give me my first reviews, my sister for helping me navigate the website and social media accounts, and my friends that have been understanding of my absence while I have worked around the clock to bring this book to life. So, with all that, it's here! I am looking forward to meeting my readers and reading their reviews! And finally, I thank my readers and their parents for taking a chance on a brand new author and purchasing my book! You are the reason more stories will be published! I thank you!

I learned a lot in the process of creating my first published book. This was a lot of one step forward and two steps back, and a lot of learning new things. It's not just writing and typing the book, or drawing and colouring pictures. When you choose to publish a book yourself, you need a well edited story, months to invest in your picturebook or chapter book, time to grow your social media and friends and family that share your work so your name will grow.

It's getting up everyday and willing to ask questions and outsourcing the answers. The help of others' knowledge and guidance is huge! Also, you need to know that it's going to take more time than you think.

If you have a dream in your life, I encourage you to do it. It is not easy to put yourself out there. You will have a lot of learning and some frustrations. You will have to be courageous, patient and breathe through it. But at the end of the day we have one life and opportunity. If you do this for yourself, you will have lived your life saying, "I did' verses "I wish I would have," or "I should have!" #iamgoingcampingwithmom #firstpublication #indiechildrensbook #dreamcometrue #bucketlistgoal #authorillustrator #daretodream
