My Favorite Author
You see, my Sis is an author. She has written a book called Waiting For Dusk and it is very very good. You can get it at barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com. It is an ebook or a paperback. It is a young adult book but everyone who has read it loves it and they have been ages 15 to 85!
I am really proud of her but really didn't understand the impact of being a well-liked author. It will change her life.
She has fans! Big fans! Who loved her and were so excited to meet her because of her book. They made a little crowd around her and everything. Lots of people there had not read her book and now they want to!
I'm not surprised by her success. As I said it's a very very good book. I just can't explain the feeling of pride and awe I have for her. There she was at a little retirement party and she was making a personal appearance! I felt like she was as famous as Angelina Jolie!
It is so exciting and I can hardly wrap my head around it. I was just about bursting with pride. I mean, she's my little sister. We held hands when we were little and had CIB(sorry, our own private term). Now she's entering a world I knew nothing about and am having fun learning about it.
It's not easy to be an author now. There is a ton out there. She has to work hard to get her book known. I know she will.
The best part of listening to her fans was the reaction when she said there is another book in the series. They were overjoyed. I'm telling you I could have cried with happiness.
If you have a little sister and you think she's annoying or bratty or hangs around you too much, you better think again because some day she may make you so very, very proud.
