    Congratulations! That is such a huge accomplishment. I wish you much luck on publishing. I hear the hard part is having others tell you how to edit your baby.

      Thanks for reading, Laney! I am excited and basking in the “I’m done!” emotions right now. Then the hard work starts…editing and taking criticism. LOL

    Congrats! If you can’t find a publisher, do it yourself with either or

      That’s definitely an option. We’ve been chatting with some friends who’ve successfully raised money on Kickstarter for another project. They’d be awesome help if I go that route.

    Yay! I can’t wait to read your book- I don’t think you will have a difficult time finding a publisher!

      Thank you Kathy! The encouragement is appreciated. If I can’t find an agent/publisher I’m going to try self-publishing. Time will tell.

    Lisa, that’s a major accomplishment! I can’t wait to read it.

    It looks like you have a very supportive editor. That’s great!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I’ve had a few eyes on my book so far and they’ve all been constructive. I’m looking forward to the rewrites and editing, actually.

    Congrats on the first draft Lisa! I know how hard it is to get that one out of the way. 🙂 Can’t wait to read it, however it’s published!

      I’ve written a few fictional books in the past. Honestly, trying to write a book about ME was hard in the beginning. Once I got over that hard part, the writing was easy.

    This is fantastic! You should be very proud of yourself Lisa!

      Ha! I’d settle for a kind word from a fan to a publisher THEY know! Anyone?? 🙂

    Way to go, Lisa! We talked about this months ago when I went public with my book being published in 2012. I am so happy you took the next step and soared thru to finish the first draft. It is so exciting!

    It is great that your first editor is a friend. It gets you use to what it will be like when editor #2, who you do not know at all, starts editing your baby.

    Again, way to GO!

      We did talk about this! And I appreciated your help and advice a great deal. I’m sifting through the MOUNDS of information I’ve collected about “how to”. We’ll see how I do…

    Hi Lisa!

    This is SO EXCITING. Congratulations!! 🙂 I must say that I’m surprised you had a hard time with the hood to coast part because I remember being so moved and feeling such a connection with you when I read your recap.

    I can’t wait to read it. You should be very proud of yourself!


    1. Lisa Eirene

      Oh thank you, Kassi! I love that you were so moved by my recap of Hood to Coast. I think the hard part about writing about it was reliving the emotions I felt at the time. But in a way it was great to relive it, too.
