My Favorite Author

I was attending a retirement party for my WP and there was quite a crowd.  My Sis was there too and the most interesting thing happened.
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.
