Dreams do come true, don't they?

Joanne said...

Congratulations Amy! I can only imagine, but you must be walking on a cloud ...

Amy MacKinnon said...

They can,Judy, they can.

Thanks, Joanne. It's a bit surreal.

DeAnna Cameron said...

Wow, congratulations! I love that the side lighting gives you an added *glow*

This picture has caused a huge lump in my throat. Kudos to the person who captured your expression. In it, I read everything you have posted in your blogs about bringing your work to this incredible achievement...I see those 10,000 hours that Lisa wrote about (I mean that as a compliment :) I am so proud and happy for you, and I look forward to purchasing my own copy of Tethered at Buttonwood on Aug 12th!

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Deanna, what a lovely sentiment. Thanks.

Lisa, you make me weep.

Mo, I can't wait to see you there. Thanks so, so much for putting it on your calendar. I expect to someday return the favor.

Melissa Marsh said...

Wow, wow, wow! Awesome! Congrats, Amy!

Therese said...

What a marvelous moment for you.

:)

Amy MacKinnon said...

Melissa, for you to take the time, make the effort to offer me good wishes when you're in so much pain...I'm awfully sorry about Charlie. It's a terrible thing to lose someone as wonderful as him. My heart goes out to you.

Therese, I remember well the day you showed usyour copy of Souvenir. It seemed my turn would never come and here it is. Thanks for your support.

Larramie said...

Here it is and soon there it will be out for all to enjoy. Except those readers will never know your personal story, Amy, and that's why we all feel part of your thrill. Thank you!!!

GORGEOUS! Book AND author!

Usman said...

Reminds me of a Wimbledon Champion with her trophy.
and you look stunning.

Amy MacKinnon said...

Oh, Larramie, thank you! Only another writer would understand this crazy journey and understand how meaningful that picture is.

Thank you, Kristy! And it's a gorgeous quote on the back of the book. Are you stil floating now that MATTERS OF FAITH is an IndieBound pick?

Usman, see the bags under my eyes from all these sleepless nights worrying that I've forgotten to do something to help this book into the world? Thank you, friend.
